Excellent narration. 3rd person POV. Set in present-day small town Tennessee and aboard a spaceship heading for a distant planet.
I feel betrayed by the rave reviews. I had my hopes up, but this was a waste of money and time. Not heartwarming or poignant. Not suspenseful or scary. Not witty or even mildly funny. Just a bizarre mix of characters and relationships, plus unrealistic plot lines, an unresolved ending, and a nauseatingly vapid romance.
One of the decisions the author made was to try to "make nice" with a hateful thug: The sheriff's disgusting son Tony beats a harmless pedestrian to a bloody pulp, leaving him unconscious at side of road, shoots the windows out of a humble home, steals a car, and tries to frame an innocent man. But we should forget all that? Tony should become a hero, and a friend? No. Without extensive rehabiliation, one simply can't make a silk purse out of that sow's ear. That's just one example of the characterization and relationship issues I struggled with in this book.
Contents might be acceptable for younger readers. No sex. Some random swearing, I think. Some disgusting scenes involving torture, etc.

I can't believe I forced myself to listen to this 'book'. It was stupid and the narrator wasn't much better.
