I am struggling to bother. I'm interested in some of the characters situations, but I'm finding several things presented to be confusing; there seems to be no logical reasoning behind a few actions... the writing style is a little boring, in a way that says this writer was just trying so hard to interject certain knowledge and little expressions that should have just been edited out. If it doesn't enhance the story somehow, a character's remembering the term "passenger manifest" is just adding words and making me roll my eyes; this type of interjection seems to be habitual and is what I come to expect from a teenage writer.
The performance isn't really a performance; it is more of a reading. I have not yet felt any heart go into the story telling, although the narrator is switching up some accents in an attempt to make it interesting I supose, but it's not clear if it's really a good fit for the character. That feeling of knowing who and what the characters are about just isn't there... that is likely to do with the writing, since a narrator also has to work off what they got.
oh well... I'm going to keep pushing though and see how this goes.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
It seemed to move sooo slowly. I would like to have found out what happened to some of the characters but couldn't make myself wade through any longer
