I only wish there was another book. As crazy as it may sound, I will miss the characters in the book. I found myself cheering for them and scared for them. As my fingers can attest, this book is a nail biter. I listened nonstop even though I didn't want to reach the end because it would mean saying good bye.
I enjoyed this series, until this book. I had a horrible time getting thru with this book. i don.t recall so much cursing in the previous books. The end felt force, it felt rushed. Kinda like it's 430 am and I need to turn this in in 2hrs and i need to wrap it up. Very disappointing.
I love reading. For a long time, I snubbed audio books like so many others. How wrong and misguided I was.
I could see myself listening to this again. I listened to it rather fast the first time.
Yes! This was truly hard to put down.
I had heard that this ending would leave me wanting. I felt like that wasn't the case. Maybe if I hadn't been told that I wouldn't have been expecting the worst- I'm not sure, but I felt the ending was perfect for a book like this- it fit quiet well in the fabric of the story, I'm surprised it had as much closure as it did.
But that's all up to the reader, I'm sure.
I felt like this book lived up to the expectations of book one! That's for sure. Happy reading!
This has got to be one of if not the best books I have ever read! The series is so powerful and emotional and truly captures what it is like to fight for something. This was just such an amazing series and am so sad it is over!:( Sarah Drew did an AMAZING job capturing both Lena and Hana in this book. Just everything about it was so amazing and perfect! Bravo. Outstanding.
This book switches back and forth from Hanna to Layna. Of course it is good but I personally didn't enjoy it quite as much as the 2nd book. It's always sad when a series ends and I find myself wishing there was more. All good things must come to an end however, and I will be satisfied having thoroughly enjoyed this trilogy.
I absolutely love love love this series by Lauren Oliver. She is one of my favorite women authors. If Lauren continues to give us such wonderfully powerful books such as these she will have a bright future.
As for the narrator Sarah Drew I can not sing her praises enough. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED her narration of each character. Especially Lana and Alex's fight scene when he tells her what kept him alive. I was practically in tears from that performance. If I were Lauren Oliver I would insist on having Sarah Drew narrate each and every one of my books. And if she wasn't available at the time I would wait until she is, that's how awesome she is. I would recommend this book, absolutely!
The story was interesting, the reader well matched and I thought the concept was good. Spoiler alert: When the female character uses another guy, and then throws him over, I don't have any respect for that character. "Don't tell me you love me - here let me kiss all over you". "Please give me time but I'll continue to sleep next to you every night". The poor guy ends up getting hit right between the eyes - down for the count when he is dumped. With the girl throwing herself at him at every chance, how could he ever see it coming. I found that bit distracting - the story could stand without it. At one point, when she was all over the first guy again, I wondered what she was going to do - take him back to the tent to sleep with her and the second guy? I always think both guys should walk away and find someone better. That back and forth is like a character flaw in a book. I did like the main story, but the so called romance was annoying.
Great story and loved all of it till the end. The end wasn't bad but wish there was an ending instead of leaving it all open at the end.
