Review: I liked the little snippets you got of the future, hints of what the characters were going to become. How awesome their story is going to be. Them little bits made me want to know how they were going to become this great person. Also nice to see the characters develop from a young age.
I listened to the story on audible even though I was given the physical copy. (I can listen to audio at work = gets to it faster) It did feel like the story skipped in a few places, or that it could have been made clearer, that it was switching from character to character.
