Just a book fool.
Easy is one HOTT read. Nothing super spectacular and I honestly didn't buy the "conflict" of the two main characters having a relationship. I 100% saw every "surprise" coming but you know what I did not care.
This book was enjoyable, sexy, and down right entertaining.
This is not your run of the mill angel story not even a little bit. This one will surprise you and gross you out simultaneously. Virtually no romance so if you are looking for that you might have to wait for the sequel. However, if you are looking for adventure this is your stop. Hang on it's going to be a wild ride.
Pushing The Limits is a surprisingly beautiful tale of two teenagers who are dealt a bad hand. I loved hearing these two overcome their crappy situations and figure out how to love themselves and how to be loved.
There is quite a bit of teen angst that I feel a bit removed from (being 20 something) but overall I think its a story almost everyone can love.
Tara Sands performance is a little high pitched for my taste but MacLeod Andrews makes up for it.
I suggest you give this book a chance!
I am an adult who loves a good YA read---but really I just love an engrossing story. If it pulls me in and I can't stop reading-I'm happy!
I clicked on an ad—that said Hunger Games + Cinderella + The Bachelor = The Selection and totally impulse bought this audio book. I admit it, I was taken by the ad and the cover. Beautiful.
I don’t want to give away too much, but I found the main character to be charming and endearing in a “no, no… please don’t do that… oh you really did it now” kind of way. I really liked her family… in particular her youngest brother. I also felt like her relationship with her Mom really rang true for me. There were moments that made me cringe thinking about the trouble America got herself into through her impetuous responses. I am completely rooting for her—and have already picked which guy I think would be better for her. But based on how she reacted through out the book, and what my gut thought she should do—she will probably choose the other one. (So yes, triangle)
Beyond all of the romance stuff (which is front and center of the book)—is what I imagine for the author a slow build. I loved how the knowledge of this society is laid into the story.
1)I thought—especially in the very beginning that the narrator sounded almost mechanical---wooden. Maybe this was on purpose?? By the end, I didn’t notice it anymore… in fact I did love the way she did the Prince’s voice---for that she deserves credit. If you are listening--let me to encourage you to push on.
2)The ending… I have rewound and listened to the last 20 minutes… oh man, seriously painful---and I would say abrupt ending. All I can do is hope it’s not a long time for the next one. But then maybe that’s a good thing…
Over all I really enjoyed it... but if you are more a fan of Hunger Games than Cinderella or the Bachelor then I’m not sure this is the book for you. Romance is definitely the name of this game.
