This story was unique and interesting and full of adventure. Parts were predictable but I still really enjoyed it. I had a hard time putting it down because I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. Narrator was annoying though. She sounded too old and the voices she gave some of the kids was whiny and just plain silly.
I love to read!
This story grabbed my attention and kept me interested until the end. It was easy to become involved with each of the main characters and their back stories. I was reminded in ways of The Hunger Games, yet this story definitely took its own direction. After reading the story first, the narrator didn't quite seem right to me as I listened (that's why 4 out of 5 stars), but I still enjoyed the experience. I can't wait to read the second book!
Books are the best
I liked the narrator. And I liked the idea of the story.
I love Roar. He's funny, strong and it's actively gunning for the main character. It's nice.
I like the scene on the roof where Roar is teaching Aria how to fight and Perry is just angsting over it all.
Not so much. It was interesting. But it didn't rock my world.
The idea of the smart screen was very intriguing. Fancy fancy technology.
yes.....because I like my friends
The overall story line and the building of the charaters. I liked them and cared about them.
No.She was ok, but I felt a younger narrator would have been better suited for this book. I never related her voice to any of the charaters.
It was hard to stop, I always wanted to know what was going to happen next....it never got boring.
I am immortal ....so far. I enjoy a god story and love a great narrator. :-)
Original settings and characters. It's overall an interesting view of a possible future. Well narrated, overall decent with a few unexpected twists.
First of all, the narrator: usually female narrators, in my experience, are harder to listen to- NOT so in this case. After the initial chapter full of teenage stereotypes, the narrator was perfect. She has a vocal resonance that is easy to listen to. The story grabs you in the first chapter. Action, adventure, intrigue - it's all here and more. Definitely an excellent read/listen.
The concept is intriguing. Realms, pods, the Death Shop. Clever, creative- a wonderful read/listen!
A 50-something who loves sci-fi, cozy mysteries, thrillers, an occasional romance, and any genre if it is a good story. And especially if it makes me laugh! No vampires or zombies though - these are NOT sci-fi!
This book reminded me of some of Anne McCaffrey's best. The characters are well developed, then story is intense, and the love story is well-written. Aria's development as a character was intriguiging, and Perry was the perfect hero! I liked the way that the point of view changed between the main characters. The ending had an interesting twist, and left hope for a sequel!
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
It was really good...one of the better books I have listened to so far...I was enthralled, and intrigued... the characters are marvelous... I really enjoyed this story, and hope there is a book 2....
The fight to get to Delphi....it was such a struggle and I was overwhelmed with emotion for them...And I loved how the relationship with perry and aria developed...
When aria and perry just knew they were meant to be...
Just like on the book...A million ways to die...But one way to live....I think this book would make a fantastic movie!!
A great read...anyone who did not give this book a chance is a fool...it was a wonderful story, and I truly hope there is another one....
No -- it was fine, but I don't usually listen to audiobooks multiple times.
Probably not. I enjoyed some of the dystopian aspects of the novel, but it was too much of a romance novel set in a dystopian universe when I was looking for more of a novel about the dystopian universe without the romance being center stage.
I liked the characters and enjoyed the story, but it very soon became clear that the romance was the central aspect of the story. Honestly, I think that this book needs a sequel -- there was so much that wasn't resolved at the end of the story. And a lot of things about the universe that I thought would get revealed over time (like how it became dystopian) that the author never explained. I found that frustrating because I was interested in those aspects of the story more than the romance.
I would add more suspense and I would describe certain things more. Without it you lose emotional attachment with main character.
I see it being made into the cheap TV series on scifi channel.
