This was an amazing Young Adult novel... strong characters, gripping story, great narrator. Ann Aguirre really knows how to keep a reader going. Very gripping.
The story is good but the narrators voice doesnt match the words and tone of the story, its alittle off putting. I would recommend reading the book rather than listening to it. Im excited to get the next and see where the story goes!
Overall I found Enclave to be worth the time it took to get through it. Which when you're offering up 7 plus hours of your life to a book, I think that is a compliment.
This is by no account the most well written YA book I've read. But it is not offensive or painful to get through. It drags in parts, it's character development is rather shallow, and it does not live up to its potential. On the other hand, it has a lot of imagination. A lot of people have created some very similar dystopian societies and I love finding one that I don't feel as though I have visited before. I won't pick apart the book any further. I will just say give it a try and leave it at that.
The book starts off slow, but gets more interesting as it continues. The voice of the reader is annoying at first but then you realize she is supposed to be a child and it makes sense.
Absolutely! I really liked this book and loved the series. I thought it was just going to be about the Enclave. And to tell the truth that was my least favorite part. But then, (spoiler alert) Deuce goes "topside" and an entire new phase of the book begins. This series spans so many different locations it really keeps it interesting.
The passion of Deuce. Other reviews mention the narrator's high pitched voice bothering them. I completely disagree. The main character is 15 when the book starts so should not have been told by a grown woman with a deep voice. Emily Bauer did a wonderful job reading as Deuce in the first person. Especially when Deuce showed pride of being "a huntress". Personally if I had read the book, I wouldn't have put so much life into the character and her attitude and personality would have been lost.
Yes. I even started listening at work with headphones.
Definitely don't pass up Outpost and Horde. The books keep getting better and better until the very end, which left me smiling.
It's a well written story and read well too. Action, mystery, sorrow, lust, and
The reader and main character. I love brave women.
I feel like this question leads to spoilers! Not going to say.
The narrator had a tendency to do a weird self deprecating laugh when describing something about the main character. There were several times that it was very out of place. They were the middle of an attack and the character said something that sounded like it should have been strong but it had that laugh. All of the characters sounded really young. I get that they were in the late teens or early twenties but she made them sound younger. I don't know if it was just the writing or the narrator but I have not enjoyed this one at all.
Ann Aguirre combines the best elements of a story: an exciting plot, dynamic characters and a great ending. I couldn't put this series down. Duece and Fade are a great pair and this series kept me wondering the whole time. I am thankful to say I loved it from beginning to end. Ann Aguirre has become one of my new favorite authors.
It is a distopian book and therefore could be compared to Divergent or the Hunger Games but in my opinion is much better. Duece is a much stronger character. Katniss could be annoying and Tris sometimes didn't make sense.
Emily Bauer has an interesting voice and to be honest at first it took a little getting used to but she brought the story alive for me. I enjoy listening to stories so much more than reading them.
Yes, I couldn't put it down.
Loved the whole series!!!
I'm a horror nut! Zombies in particular! Epidemics, end of all things! Also enjoyed Game of thrones very much!
Give this book a shot it's a good one! I'm going to next part ASAP!
