I loved it. I had no problem with finishing it at all. And the most memorable part of the book hast to be that the love in the book. And I thought the narrator was amazing and didn't miss any details!
I loved this book and finished it in two sittings. The only break I took was to sleep. In the beginning the whole scrated out noise is a little annoying but it goes away. It represents her correcting her thoughts.The love story is their and a big factor but it isn't the whole book their is a story. I and what I think to be a large majority of the listeners/readers were on the edge waiting to know what would happen. I personally wait to know what will happen with Warner. There are a lot of bad reviews on this book but don't let anothers opinion influence you chose in this book this series is good and I hope more people will read/listen to them.
the first half of this book was really slow. it really started to pick up at the end and then it was over. I was pretty sure I wasn't going to continue to the next, but the ending hooked me just enough to be interested in the next book.
it's YA so if you don't like angst then skip this one. it tends to be mellow dramatic, but it was pretty quick and enjoyable to listen to.
Unique, descriptive, and captivating
So many of the dystopian novels are the same these days. One can only come up with so much material on the matter. That being said, this series was the most unique I have come across since the Divergent series. This is a series that will not be tossed aside!
Wow, Kate's performance was flawless. Each character was spoken in such a way that you will recognize each difference. She became the characters.
This book only took a couples days for me to finish.
I have Lupus so with all my down time I love a good game and good book.
this book is so unique and awesome I have listened to it multiple times and never get tired of it!
The main character is just so dramatic. The author goes way overboard with the fluff... the visual and emotional descriptions. The narrator does a good job just more of a writing issue for me. I found myself constantly rolling my eyes.
I felt that there was no character development and that relationships between characters were very rushed. There was no gradual understanding of a character or the process of learning and understanding them. The characters immediately understood the personalities of others and made instant connections, while referring to them as though they had been together for years. Overall, everything was very rushed with very little development.
I love books in this genre and had a lot of hope for this one. I will continue to read/listen to this genre, but doubt I will be reading more from this author.
Kenji was probably my favorite as he actually had some personality and depth to him. Although his character has flaws as well, all of the other characters were very two dimensional.
I don't think that I would have removed scenes, so much as insisting on more scenes. Much more gradual development should have been employed.
One thing that makes this book especially unique is the writing style and word choice. Everything is written almost as though this entire book is a poem. It gives for some interesting (if sometimes over-used) visuals, but for the most part I found it very distracting and somewhat annoying. It felt as though the author was trying to make up for the story-line by writing very lyrically. More emphasis on plot, character relationships, and all of the small details that really bring a book to life would have done much better for this book than the style.
I loved Kate Simses voice! She really brought it to life. The only thing that got to me at all, was the book is packed full of metaphors and analogies. Like, a lot of them. Still enjoyed the book though!!
