This book did not do it for me. As someone who loves dystopian YA fiction, this just didn't cut it. For starters- it felt extremely girly and extremely whiney. As a woman it felt a little too teenage girl for me. The writing wasn't fantastic and the performance was incredibly flat. The story itself is fine, but it could have been better. I had no desire to read the sequel and probably wouldn't recommend this as an audio book.
Parts of this story reminded me of a combination of Hunger Games and The Bachelorette, but even with that I still enjoyed it!
The Narrator sas really good and I liked the way she emphasized certain things to give the book more life. I finished the book in 8 hours nonstop.
I can say that if I was just reading it would have took way longer. All in all, this was a great new exoerirnce and I look foward to continue reading.
Maxon or Aspen? Who will you choose America? I dont even know but I think Maxon. Just my opinion tho and happy readings.
I wasn't sure what I was getting into when I started this... I judged the book by the cover because it looked pretty.... And they are turning this into a movie.... I was pleased with the story, it sucked me in and now I'm stuck... Onto the next one
This whole series was a page turning easy listen that kept me entertained for hours (I listened while I traveled long distances for work and in earphones while I ran). The characters make the story - there is a varied cast, and many of the characters are dynamic, and the story touches on each character's growth through the eyes of the protagonist as her world-view changes and she grows up. A large part of that growth is understanding herself better - her capabilities and strengths in particular, and what she wants out of life and what it means to love. It's not going to be mandatory summer reading literature, but it sure is fun to read/listen to.
