I loved the story and the book!
Team Maxon all the way!
But. The girl who reads it sounds like a robot.
I do recommend the story. You just have to get used to the robot sounding voice ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I loved this story!!! it's one of the best I've read, well listened to! I'm actually going to get the other books hopefully! I only have one issue and that's, that the person reading it seemed a little robotic at first...I got used to it after awhile but it would be great if it were read more swiftly.
Perfect young adult series if you are into Cinderella type stories! There was so much more to this story than the romance but I fell in love with the main couple of the story and couldn't stop listening. I have heard that this book may be turning into a movie! I sure hope that is true!
I'm a 37 year old, married to my bf & raising his 2 teenagers. Lover of life, great outdoors, in awe of God's creations & curious of it all.
I love books that suck you in from the beginning & this is one of them. I have listened to all of the Selection series and as a 30+ year old woman I can honestly say that this isn't just for young girls, this really keeps you coming back for more. The story is a great one with highs and lows and I found myself many times giggling along or stressed out like I was right there in the story.
Of course it was America- she's a tough girl who can hold her own no matter who she is around & speaks her opinion rather others will like it or not.
I think Amy did a great job of portraying all the different characters without the listener getting lost.
It was probably the meet-cute where America met Prince Maxon.
All books were hard to stop listening to- I would listen to them at work and found myself not wanting to leave work because I knew I wouldn't be able to listen at home because there wasn't time.
This book had me from the go. The moment I started listening, well I didn't want to stop. I can't wait to listen to The Elite. I just love America Singer and how real and down to earth she is.
I enjoyed the storyline, and It left me wanting to know what happens in the next book. But the whole thing was all but ruined by this choice in narrators. I could hardly bear to listen to the monotone, lack luster reading the narrator gave. She seriously made me want to scream sometimes, how she had no emotion in her voice and almost sounded robotic sometimes. This narrator sucked the life out of all the characters, and I am dreading hearing her voice for the next however-many books there are in this series...🙄😖
loved the story, can't wait to start the elite. the only criticism is that the narrator used over pronunciation a bit at times and especially the first half of the book. now one to book number 2!!
My experience of this book would have been infinitely better with a different narrator. With such feminine themes (and a character who appears to go against the grain) I found the narrator far too feminine. Her voice was grating. The writing was cheesy. The characters poorly developed. Yet, I still want to find out what happens next.... Will I subject myself to the next book? Hmmm... I just don't know if I can.
