Audio Book Summary

Ender, Katniss, and now Darrow.'-- Scott Sigler Pierce Brown' s relentlessly entertaining debut channels the excitement of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Ender' s Game by Orson Scott Card. ' I live for the dream that my children will be born free,' she says. ' That they will be what they like. That they will own the land their father gave them.' ' I live for you,' I say sadly. Eo kisses my cheek. ' Then you must live for more.' Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children. But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and sprawling parks spread across the planet. Darrow-- and Reds like him-- are nothing more than slaves to a decadent ruling class. Inspired by a longing for justice, and driven by the memory of lost love, Darrow sacrifices everything to infiltrate the legendary Institute, a proving ground for the dominant Gold caste, where the next generation of humanity' s overlords struggle for power. He will be forced to compete for his life and the very future of civilization against the best and most brutal of Society' s ruling class. There, he will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies . . . even if it means he has to become one of them to do so.

    This was the single best audiobook production I have ever listened to. Pierce Brown draws you into this other place. He skilfully grafts you into another civilisation, in such a way as to make reality seem faded and unimportant. Tim Gerard Reynolds doesn't narrate. He acts. His reading of this work should bring him much acclaim...all of it deserved. His mastery of subtle dialectical differences, emphases, and intonation are simply too notch. His sense of timing and manner of delivery are unparalleled. I never looked at Brown's work, before. Thanks to Reynolds, I may be a Brown fan, for life. Such an excellent production that I recommend it, without reservation. Stunning. Flawless. High art.

    I didn't get far into this book. I was really turned off. It's "science fiction" that devolves cultural evolution to its worst in human history. The author is another maladapted privileged guy with the issues he should have addressed in therapy 30 years ago.
