This was my first audiobook and I was HOOKED. Loved the narrator and the story.
The Hunger Games and The Giver because of the setting and storyline.
Started listening to this while I went through my closet and COULD NOT STOP LISTENING. Had to get the 2nd and 3rd book as well. AMAZING! Fell in love with the characters and was on the edge of my seat.
I am a big Harry Potter, Hunger games, maze runner, divergent, and similar books fan. This one was recommended by my daughter. I loved it. I was hooked from the start and can't wait to read the next! I was devastated that the book ended... LOL! A MUST HAVE for sure.
This book was probably the best book I've ever heard! It was so detailed to the point where I could practically see what was taking place! I wold definitely recommend this book to people who take interest in science fiction and romance! I can't wait to listen to the rest of the series!
It's been a long time since I read (heard) such a beautiful story that was recently written. They're few and far between. This story was overflowing with poetic descriptions, subtle symbolism, and underlying context that was revealed so carefully and sweetly. The story wasn't laid out, step by step, like most newer books. Instead it unraveled, with discoveries and revelations along the way. It was almost a poem itself, and was far beyond what I expected. Looking forward to the second of the series!!
The basic idea behind the story is interesting, however I found this book SO SLOW. The whole book could have been condensed into 1/2 or 1/3 of what it was to get to some action or intrigue .
I also have a hard time caring about either love interest, and as for the main love interest I'm at a loss as to why the protagonist cares about him. In this book the characters are flat and one dimensional.
It's not horrible, just average and not your typical dystopian novel with a faster paced plot.
