Loved the book! Id heard so much good things about it! I never actually look into a book before I read it because it makes me not want to and honestly when I looked into it more it didnt seem like my thing, im more of a witch and wizard, demigod and saytar, vampire and werewolf girl. But this story was incredible! I own an etsy shop and i use these audio books so that i can work and read at the same time but my heart was beating so fast everytime something happened especially with darn Celest that i could barely work. I applaud Kiera, its extremely hard to get me this interested in a book especially one without the supernatural but this is definitely a book i wouldnt mind reading 4 or 5 times. Altho the story was amazing, the performance of the reader... I mean seriously was it Siri or Kristen Stewart reading this book because they both pretty much sound the same, dry and annoying. If the reader wants to continue her career in audio books i suggest some lessons or maybe a different career.
I just loved it. I felt the story was really fun, the characters were great. the Narrator did a really good job. I can't wait to read the next book.
I can clearly see why this setting and the story of being chosen by a prince fascinates young girls. But the writing is dull, the world in which events take place undeveloped, the characters are stereotyped and the whole tale is not even finished in this book! The reader sounds a bit like a robot, despite her best efforts. All in all, it could have been a lovely fairy tale experience, if it was written a bit deeper. It's interesting, how little it takes to man a book a bestseller... So much for people squishing their brains, trying to create something smart, meaningful, and original.
Absolutely! I tend to listen several times when I enjoy a series.
My only complaint is that it is only 8 hours long. I prefer the longer books so I feel my credit will go further
What a great book, there's romance and suspense as well as just a great story! I love how it feels like the past and future mixed into one. Can't wait to get the next book!
The storyline is simple. The prince tries to do the right thing, The heroin from a poor family miss judges him. And the storyline does not end but continue into the next of the series.
The Selection was an interesting concept for a story and I heartily enjoyed the performance. I would definitely recommend this book. I can't wait to read the next installment.
I loved the story; the author was very realistic with the characters. It's so refreshing that the author did NOT make the characters "hold out" on telling the other characters information that would cause ridiculous domino effects. In reality people explain themselves, so I'm really glad the characters in this book did the same.
There was more action in this trilogy than I expected. Things happen and spins unfold making this book exciting and the story unpredictable (except for the fact that the 3 trilogy titles really do give it all away haha).
The narration was not very good. It was very flat and monotone, the different voices were inconsistent. I did not like the dull narration. But I did get used to it after a while and kept listening because the story was good.
