May be a great book, but not on audio

Out of This Place
Out of This Place

By: Emma Cameron

Genre: YA realistic fiction

Pages: 416

Published: 2013

Audiobook: 3 CD's ( 3 hours 19 mins)

Read: May

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.
