Unique story and a blast of a listen! Great Job Audible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This block doesn't give me enough characters to write all the best parts.... I'll just say exciting and fun beginning to end!!
The performance is tremendous. Neil is a class act, and the story he tells comes alive for the listener.
The battle at the school... love the action pact non stop flow.
Can't wait to hear the next one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
I did not like the way the Narrator read this book..I was VERY disappointed and couldnt even get thru an hour of the book.. I enjoyed the movie very much and thought that this audio would be awesome, but I was wrong. Perhaps a different person narrating would help..
I truly enjoyed this book. I can only listen to it while communing back and forth to work. There were many times that I simply wanted to stay in the car just to listen as long as I can. Yes, there are silly things in the book that one can just do without (like the romantic parts) but once that part was over the rest was exciting. The narrator was hard to listen to when doing the female voice. The plot was good. I can't wait for the rest of the books to follow. I just hope that the movie will be just as good as the book. It a good book for all ages. I would recommand it to everyone that enjoys SciFi stories.
It's hard to imagine that a book entitled "I am Number Four" could be any good but let me tell you it is amazing! And is worth your money/credits and time. Telling the story of 9 teens forced from there planet in deep outer space by a race of cruel aliens looking for another planet to support their technology. Knowing that this race will soon go to earth (the place that is unknowingly the residents to the 9 humanoid teens) a spell was placed on them that made it so that they could only be killed of in order. The beginning of the book starts with "John" (one of many false names) who has just found out that number 3 has been killed and with him being number 4 he WILL be next.
This book is chalk full of humor and action packed scenes and in my book goes down as one of the best crafted alien novels. Believe me this isn't an alien book you are used to. This one leaves you on the side of our friend John and his species that has all but been dystroyed. You would be silly to pass this book by! Especially since soon the theatres will be showing a cinimatic (sp?) version of this movie, and from the trailers, it looks like this story will be quite a popular one.
Very shallow characters behaving in cliché and predictable ways. If you are a teen or late pre-teen this is a good read. If you liked the twilight books and the "romance" in them, then you would probably like this book. It was not my thing though
This was such a great action packed story but is most definitely geared toward the young adult crowd. If you like books like Harry Potter, The Twilight Series, etc... you will enjoy this.
The narrator was not a good match for the story because he could not do female voices at ALL. This did annoy me at times but the story was good enough that I was able to still enjoy it. I think it was worth the credits/money. I say give it a try!
This is the worst narration I have ever heard! I couldn’t go past the first few chapters. Maybe I’ll read the book, since I think the story could be interesting.
This is a pretty good story and I'm not sorry that I bought it, though if I had known that it was about and for teens I might not have. Much of the tension in the plot is based around typical teen themes as bully jocks, first love, fitting in a new school and the like. All pretty standard teen stuff.
I call it a fantasy because the science part of science fiction is frankly terrible. The author has obviously not paid much attention to this area and it's glaring obvious. Fortunately the story is well enough told that I didn't mind terribly. I'd give the story 3.5 stars but round up because the narration is good and the story held my interest in spite of the lack of science grounding.
