Audiobook addict but if I go through the trouble to write a review, I must feel VERY strongly about it.
New take on the distopian future idea. I personally prefer y.a. though I'm in my 30's. not so much sex and cussing (there is a little in this, but not bad). maybe a little predictable, but very entertaining. again, I like the new ideas presented.
I really enjoyed this young adult book better than I expected I would. With all of the new series coming out about apocalyptic type civilizations, I wasn't sure if this would be too close to series I had already read, but I really enjoyed this. Will continue reading the series.
Bought on a whim during a sale. Such a great book! I can't wait to listen to the next 2. Great YA book but still wonderful for a 41 year old woman.
Loved the narrator. SUCH feeling as she told the story.
Ok. Gotta go buy #2!
The writing is amazing, i actually have both the print and the audible version. It was amazingly written.
The love story between Alex and Lena was amazingly written. It was what every teenager wants. Forbidden love and all that junk. Great for teenage readers.
Her voice isn't completely annoying.
Yes, but it was 10 hours long, impossible to sit that long.
To start with it was a new and different concept. It was thought provoking in a way that makes you think, what would I do if it was me?
I am not sure if there is a book like it. At least not one that I have read. While it contains a fantastical idea, it remains calmly normal, it almost seems to drag you in by relating to our reality right now.
Sarah Drew makes you feel as if you were just listing into someones head. Her tone and acting out scenes makes for a more compelling and believable set of events.
Yes and I did. At first i got the book because it was recommended and I didn't have a clue what I wanted. When I started listening to it i just kept going, I was surprised at how fast my day had went by at work and was extremely pleased with that.
It truly is a story that is well thought out. It has intrigue, suspense,romance, heartbreak. Everything that an inventive and captivating story should have.
The story's underlying theme that love is a disease is interesting to think about. The narrator is probably the first one I've listened to that kind of got on my nerves. The voice sounds very juvenile. I was intrigued enough, however, to want to listen to the next book in the series to see what happens next. The writing is quite poetic and beautiful, but I found myself wanting her to just get to the point. Overall, if recommend it for a certain cared of people like me who need a YA novel fix.
I really enjoyed this story by Lauren Oliver. She is becoming one of my favorite women authors. Sarah Drew's performance is unlike anyone I have ever listened to. I just wish there were more narrations by her. Especially if she reads Lauren Oliver books. I would recommend this series highly. You won't be disappointed.
Sorry, but this one wasn't for me. The main character is too bland, insecure and unquestioning. Eventually, she comes into her own, but is such an unlikely hero after all her years drinking the Kool Aid, that I wasn't buying her revolt.
