I really enjoyed the first book, and I thought this book was going in a completely different direction. I didn't hate the actual story, and I was even pleasantly surprised with the turn toward the end, but I felt like everyone was too emotional.
Recently found a love for books and with Audible I can clean and keep going - I also use it in my classroom to urge kids to read.
I prefer my Dystopian, USA self destroyed worlds to have a little less romance and a little more twist and turns. I can only start to predict what the Elector has in mind or what will happen to our main characters.
I didn't know what exactly to expect from Prodigy after reading Legend but this book really did surprised me by all means. I didn't have really high hopes for this series as Legend, despite being very tension-filled and engaging, had a rather mundane, clichè and predictable plot line. This book really changed my mind about this whole series as it is the perfect sequel to its first book. I see lots of character development and I root for all characters which is a huge success for Marie Lu herself. I am truly impressed.
I absolutely got into this book. Great twists and turns, with some very exciting and yet touching parts.
An intense story full of hope and deceit. I also love the narrators. They drew me into the story, and made me feel a wide range of emotion while listening. The most memorable part for me is the ending when I was folding laundry while listening. I had to stop and dry my eyes. I will definitely listen to the next in the series. In fact, I already own it.
The story kept up the same energy and action as the first book. The voice actors seemed to have adjusted to their character portrayals a lot better then in the first book.
Loving books :) Quick and honest reviews.
Yes, However I am not a big fan of Stevens narration. He does great but not the best. There are times that he reads very slow.
The series is great but with that said the second book lost my attention. I will be listening to the 3rd with hopes of redemption. The story is strong, interesting but the second books speed was slow. However, I think it will be a great bridge into the thrid book that should be a great end to the series.
Speed up a little. Work on character development and at times the narration becomes repetitive and uninteresting.
Yes, I think it would be a great movie.
I believe if you like Hunger games, divergent, or similar stories this will be a good fit.
