May be a great book, but not on audio
Out of This Place
By: Emma Cameron
Genre: YA realistic fiction
Audiobook: 3 CD's ( 3 hours 19 mins)
2 out of 5
This book was worth it because it only consumed 3 hours of my time. There was one aspect of the entire book I enjoyed; the story is told by three friends and the book was narrated by three individuals which enhanced the uniqueness of the characters. My biggest problem with the story was I felt you didn't get enough of the teens stories. They just ended without actually given closure to their stories or the book as a whole. However when I looked at the actual book, I discovered that the stories were told in verse, which is mostly likely why I felt they were incomplete. If you are interested in the premise of story, I would recommend reading the book versus listening to it. I also think this may be a good book for reluctant readers that are looking for a book with more mature plots.
