I am not one who was really into X-men or anything like that, but this book really got me. Listening to the sample was very misleading fo me. It starts slow and different, but it helps you get a total feel for Julliette, the main character. The romance in this book is one of the best I have read/heard, it just grips your heart! I was utterly impressed with the narrator, she was the best I have EVER heard and really brought every part of this book to life for me! Great read, don't hesitate like I did!
The storyline was written for teenagers. I know it says YA but really I think it is written for teenagers. This isn't one of those YA novels that can span into older audiences. Also, the voice of thee performer just was grating to me at times. Let's just say she pulled off annoying insecure teenager voice.
before reading/listening to book 2 Unravel Me, I highly recommend you read the 1.5 novella Destroy Me from Warner's POV. Insight into him is surprisingly awesome. after reading this novella and then Unravel me, I dare anyone not to be Team Warner!
The writing and reading.
The ending of book one and on to book two. It surprised me.
This is a dark and sometimes disturbing story. I think not for everyone.
I don't recommend this for young readers or someone that is feeling down.
I really enjoyed this series! It's not exactly like The Hunger Games and Divergent, but if you like those series I think you will like this. I loved the character development through the whole series. The characters actually grew and changed and it impacted all aspects of the story. The author also has a poetic voice and rhythm with the main character. Her descriptions are unique and chalk full of imagery! I only gave the story 4 stars because I really hope there's a 4th book! :)
The story was a bit overdone but didn't really progress much. The concept seems like a neat one as stories go. It's like your classic dystopia meets X-Men. The voice of the main character was overly emotional and high strung and the author really used an entire book to develop one character. The way she constantly described being touched by Adam in the overly done vocals seemed more appropriate for a romance novel. Again, I get the point but it was a bit over done. Kenji and James however are quite endearing. Not the worst book ever but I think it would've been a better read than listen.
I'm a big fan of post society breakdown stories and anything with a little supernatural kick to it. if you liked the hunger games and Divergent or the matched or delirium series this is right up your alley ....at least I think it is ... similar in premise but plays out very differently
The second half is substantially better than the first half. Hang in there if the over description annoys you as it did me.
