review A Matter of Days Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ “Gripping and poignant A Matter of Days takes readers on a heart stopping journey of love and survival“ — New York Times bestselling author Carrie Jones   Their new reality begins in just a matter of days   On Day 56 of the Blustar Pandemic sixteen year old Nadia’s mother diesEr they endure along the way will all be worth it once they reach the compound   Unless no one is waiting for them   “Fans of Rick Yancey’ s The 5th Wave S D Crockett’ s After the Snow or Cormac McCarthy’ s adult novel The Road will find this a satisfying read” SLJ   “An exciting apocalyptic road trip” Publishers Weekly From the Trade Paperback editio. This is a pretty average YA post apocalyptic book although I think it reads like middle grade The author's notes at the end really do address the reader as a very young personThe plot is good but somewhat unbelievable again appropriate for a middle grade audience but not really anything older than that There are parts that are uasi suspenseful but nothing very dramatic The worst thing that happens is the potential kidnapping of a child Even at that it isn't very believable It's a short book and I read it in one sittingI don't read middle grade books so I can't really comment on how good this is in that regard The writing in general annoyed me; there are many parts where Nadia's inner dialogue is interspersed too freuently and in too uipped a fashion It broke up the continuity of the story for meI did begin with the audiobook narrated by Alex McKenna While I do like her voice and narration in general I had trouble here and switched to the print book fairly early on Her voice is raspy which is great for a young character like Nadia But her voice for Nadia's younger brother Rabbit didn't sound authentic It sounded much like a raspy person trying to sound silly So in the end her voice is great for other books but probably not for this one
