Very detailed, great plot building, many characters easy to keep up with them.
The evolution of humanity even in a sterile examination room.
Yes, she rocks again. Her range is subtle when it needs to be , distinct when appropriate, wonderful emotive range and when she does male voices, I hear male characters.
All of it.
If you like Divergent, or Hunger Games, or Darkest Minds... Well this isn't like any of them except that it is based in a dystopian society and you will love this one as well.
Its gripping and interesting
The way Kira grew from being afraid to strong and willing to put her life on the line
when kira and sam parted ways
I nearly did finished it in two days and if i didnt have so many interuptions i would have done in one day.
Hope Fragments is just as good
Always looking for my next great listen...
Engaging, Entertaining, A-Must-Listen
Keira was great! She is strong, smart, kind and brave. I loved going on this journey with her...
She is an excellent narrator and really does a great job with both male and female charaters. Her storytelling is seemless. I really couldn't pick just one.
A lot of the book is about the main character Keira and her friends searching (at all costs) for a cure for RM, a deadly disease that is killing every baby born for the past 11 years. The writing was amazing and I was quickly invested in the characters and their story. I listen to audiobooks a lot because I love to read and I am too busy to sit down and read an actual book as often as I would like. There were several times while I was listening to this and was so taken with the story that I literally had to stop what I was doing and just sit down and listen. Very well written and performed. It was a truly enjoyable start to finish...
I loved this audiobook so much I couldn't wait to listen to the next one in the series...and I didn't. Downloaded Fragments right away!! :)
Simply coudn't get hooked by this story. Made it about 6 or 7 hours in, and was still sort of ...meh...
I would recommend this audio book to a friend. Mostly because of its great story line and like able characters. The book was also packed full of adventure and hidden twists.
Spoiler Alert: /////////////////// When she found out she was one of them!
No, but she did an absolutely wonderful job!
Against All Odds!
The book starts out a little confusing at first and I had to restart it a few times. But this book turns out to be amazing. A lot of medical terms are used and can also throw you off at times. Luckily I came from the book series Matched and in its 3rd book had similar medical terms. It was an easy transition. This book was really good!
A busy Mum and Accountant. Listen to books while driving to work or sunbathing is my guilty pleasure.
You become part of the struggle.I hope there is a second book.
Great preformance, have searched for other books she has done.
I wasted a weekend to listen to this. I have listened to it again at least three times.
I liked it because it was different. I am not a teen but thought this was a great listen and the heroine wonderful.
good story line
Kiara the heroine
There were some slow sections, but they were necessary in some respects as Dan Wells had to build his world (which he did a great job with) and I'm really excited for what else he has to offer. The Young Adult Post-Apocalyptic genre is growing, and it is harder and harder to pick out the really good, unique books from the standard fare. I think this one isn't just more of the same. If you like that genre, this is worth listening to.
I wouldn't know.
Sue-Chi because she just has gumption.
At times yes
This story line is somewhat a little more believable than other young adult series such as hunger games, twilight, etc. If you believe that humans are self destructing control freaks and that China and the USA will eventually fight with each other causing the next world war then you should believe this story. The book has some surprises just when you start to get bored so that's nice. Overall, this is one of my top 5 YA books.
This book was definitely slow to start but I guess that was for the development of the characters and the world in which they live. But stick with it once the story gets going its great and gripping. Can't wait for the next installment.
