The story falls in the category of “far-fetched” but still fun.
It’s like the adult version of a horrible, no good, very bad day. This woman – September Day – knows how to find trouble in spades.
- Warning: Contains strong language throughout. And a bit of violence.
- Plot’s kind of out there, but that can add to the charm.
- The author does a decent job narrating her own story. Not a huge fan of the concept of self-narrating, but she does decent sound effects and voice variation.
- I love Shadow! Feel like I should get a T-shirt with that emblazoned on it. He’s adorable. I could go either way on sections of a book being written from a dog’s point of view, but it’s done well here.
- Some of the “bad guys” aren’t really believable, but it’s good to have some moral ambiguity to wrestle with. (sometimes)
- The part about drug trials is realistic enough.
- Loved the end twist. I had heard book 2 first, so I might have known it already, but I’d forgotten enough.
- There are quite a few perspectives to keep track of, not all of them necessary. But the skipping around didn’t bother me in audio form.
- I love how ordinary September is. That makes her an awesome heroine.
Don’t think too hard about plausibility. Grab the audiobook and enjoy the wild ride.
