Emma Galvin was very easy to listen to. I had seen the movie and wasn't sure what to expect from the book, but this was so much more complex and layered than Hunger Games and I am happily impressed. The story was wonderful and Emma's reading and inflections kept the story's tension and enlivened the characters. I highly recommend this audiobook.
This is the best book I have EVER read! Yes! I can't wait to read the rest of the series and see the movies!!
The story may be a little bit juvenile and many pieces seem borrowed from other stories, but the story is told in a very gripping way and it keeps you on edge for nearly the entire book. I'm glad I gave it a chance.
It took me a few chapters to get into the book but once I did I couldn't put the book down. The top thing I loved about this book was the strong female heroine. The thing I liked least was that the kids were violent and I'm not sure it was necessary. Excellent narrator!
I rate 5 (Loved it!) 4 (Really liked it!) 3 (Liked it!) 2 (Didn't really like it!) 1 (Hated it!) I never rate a book before I finish it!
I thought the testing phase of the story went on too long, but the end was interesting. After reading some of the reviews of the second book I will not buy it.
Smooth narration that effortlessly flows with the action. The themes of facing your fears, over coming fear, and being brave while doing dangerous stunts made me want to go out side and do something extreme.
