The narrator was perfect for the role. She takes a bit of getting used to, as do all narrators do. The story line was so amazing, I bought 3 new credits, just to have the series ready when I finished each book. I highly recommend this book/series.
Great twist on dating reality shows and Cinderella. This story just sucks you in and I listened to it in one sitting. I can't wait to listen to book 2.
One moment your cheering for her first love and next your cheering for the prince.
Story is so good with details that at times I want to wring some of the other girls necks lol
Off to listen to the 2/3 books in this series
I liked this series very much. It was a good story that made me look forward to the second and third books.
great story I like how it takes the future and uses past customs of royalty. it's pretty predictable if you've read alot of similar books. ends at an annoying place but atleast I don't have to wait for the next books to be made since they're already out, so on to the next one
Top 20. I love America & Maxon's relationship. The moment they meet lacks all pretense & decorum which makes it authentic & more interesting.
All of it.
Just the other books in this series. She is excellent.
The only reason I would not listen to The Selection again is because of the narrator. Her voice is monotone, breathy and lacks the ability to display much emotion.
Again, her voice was monotone, breathy and lacked the ability to display emotion.
I am looking forward to reading (not listening to) the last two books of this trilogy
I'm a grad student with very little time to edit reviews because I'm editing research papers. Forgive the typos. They're made with love.
Possibly. It's a light read but intriguing enough to listen to again in a "I'm busy with things and would like to listen to something as I do ____" kind of way. I think young reader will love this. But be warned - there is no ending so if you listen to this one, you have to listen to the others.
I liked the idea of this story - It's like the Bachelor but in a futuristic royal kind of way. I've read some reviews that compare it to the Hunger Games. This is not true. I went in thinking that all the contestants were going to have to kill each other to be the princess and that's just not the case.
Mmmm... the performance is not the best. Rubinate does okay, but she's rather monotone in her reading. Why is it the monotone readers who do well with male voices? I guess that's a kind of trade.
I'm curious about the triangle that Cass is setting up. You expect a love triangle but it makes you feel bad for the guy who is getting the short end of the stick.
Go ahead and buy all of them - this is one big book cut in 3.
