I listened to my first few audiobooks recently, but I’m still trying to get use to the medium. The only things that really threw me off about Awake were the scene changes and trying to figure out which voice belongs to which name. I’m bad with names, so I ended up looking at the transcript to figure them out (thank you for including that, by the way. It’s really helping me get use to the format more quickly).

I wasn’t sure what kind of story this was going to be. Throughout most of it, I was thinking it would be a slice of life sci-fi. If I were right, I don’t think I would have continued as neither genre is my cup of tea. But with that ending, it seems to be a horror instead of slice of life, and that genre is very much my cup of tea. I’m going to listen to the next chapter at the least.
