I felt like I was in a race...the entire time I was reading this book. It was an amazing experience.
I tried to read this book in print first and started it several times. I could not get past the first chapter. When I began the audio, chapters just flew... It all made sense and the characters came alive. I felt like I was in the maze, that I was part of all that happened. I wanted them to survive, to beat the odds. It was an amazing experience. I am looking forward to the movie coming out, but am fearful that it will destroy the iage I have created in my head of the maze and the walls. Read the book first. After you see the movie you will never be able to imagine what these things look like, you will only see someone eles's vision.
the premise is surprising and unusual so no predicting the next chapter; good reader w/ voice distinctions and authentic inflections, etc.
I am a middle school teacher! I like mostly young adult books.
I am hooked! Now I will have to get the other two!! It makes me wonder if this could/ will ever happen??? How bizarre !
Hunger Games, Divergent, Unwind
The end, finding the big room and the people who "rescued" them?! hmmmm?!!!
This book felt like it was really dumbed down for the audience. I think it could have been much more intelligently written. The silly fake swears were ridiculous and could have been toned down a lot. I would have removed at least half of them. The teenager characters acted really strangely in the situations they were in considering they were supposed to be incredibly smart. Also the characters weren't that great. I haven't read the sequels and probably won't based on this book. The premise was interesting but just not very well executed.
I would not. I really enjoyed Hunger Games but I can't get past the issues I have with the writing (story and characters) of this book.
The performance was good. I think the problem was mainly the story not the narration.
It has sequels and it certainly needs them to fill the holes the first book leaves. It was clearly written to be part of a series.
This was the first time I tried Audible and, I have to say, I wasn't disappointed. English not being my first language I really enjoyed listening to this book and I think the book is narrated very clearly. Also I think the audio edition is more accessible to a foreign listener than the printed version.
The story is awesome. Can't wait to see how it will be make into a movie!
No.. Good read, but it was a bit too long for the depth of the story...
This is an amazing tale that you won't be able to stop listening to. Every chapter ends leaving you wanting more. I listen at night and stayed awake for hour after hour listening to this audiobook. The writer brings the characters and places to life in your mind and keeps you anxious about what happens next. I can't believe the intent need to know more that arose as I listened. amazing series, too. I'm on the third book and have orderd the prequil. I'd definately listen to the three books first, so you get the full impact of the story.
The reader is amazing in using different voices for the characters, just an amazing performance!
Being a mother of 4, a full time student and married into the Military books are my escape from my reality.
This could have been a good book and series if there was a different narrator. I tried to get past the first few chapters but I was just bored.
Narration is hard, but being monitored is not a good start. Bringing more life into the characters voices or emotion in the great details that was giving to the reader would help it out.
Unfortunately, I never finished the book or even close since I couldn't get past chapter 4.
We are all now dumber for having read this story. I award you zero points and may God have mercy on your soul.
Narrator didn't have much to work with.
A really interesting story. Lots of twists to the story, and the story is bizarre, Definitely from the imagination of the author.. We have to go to book 2 for more!
