As soon as I finished book one I started book two and now I'm ready for three. There were a few moments when I shouted at my speakers, "Get over yourself and admit you love Maxon!!!" And "Forget Aspen!!!" I still loved the story.
I enjoyed the story and the person telling the story. The story was very interesting. It made me wonder if something like this could happen in the future. I hope not! The story teller was excellent! She made the characters come alive and, through some imagination, could picture the characters as they moved along in the story!
I would definitely recommend this audible to anyone.
Say something about yourself!
I keep feeling compelled to listen! The story has me and I need the next piece. I desperately need the conclusion. Truly a mark of a great writer and narrator.
I am a writer who loves reading.
I enjoyed the first book in this series, though it is mainly fluff and has very little about the more interesting aspects of the world surrounding our main character - America. The second book felt like it was mainly filler until the end. I don't see that the main character has really grown at all, but I do want to know what's going to happen to her. So, I'm torn about this book. The performance was great. Amy Rubinate has a wonderful voice.
This is a good ya dystopia romance novel. I think it could have done more in certain places with issues that it raised and some characters lacked depth, but what it aims to do it does well.
The narrator was fine, but the story was not good at all. The plot line was shallow, the world building was incomplete and the love triangle in this book was tedious!
I usually love romance novels, and enjoy the occasional love triangle story plots. But the gaping holes in the story is too glaring to ignore.
To be honest, I can't even muster the enthusiasm to write too indent about the flaws in the book - it's not worth the time or effort. Stay away from the series!
The kernel of the story is what I liked…the idea that this girl from a lower cast could become powerful and that she would change history. I loved the first one, and this one started great. But hell, what happened to America? I keep asking myself why I’m reading a book where the lesson seems to be “Be quite, let men walk all over you, don’t think for yourself….and oh, maybe put out a little too and you’ll get the guy.” How can anyone think Maxon is any kind of hero, he such a misogynistic egomaniac. No one seems to question the fact that it’s okay for him to run around making out (or worse) with anyone he wants, but if any of the girls even considers another she’s whipped (or worse). There is absolutely nothing romantic about the relationship between these two….why would America choose this jerk? I already purchased the 3rd book so I can’t decide if I should go ahead and listen to it and hope and pray that Kiera Cass wouldn’t let this book end with America marrying Maxon. Please….tell me that America goes on to lead the rebels to victory and either she ends up with Aspen or she finds someone in the rebel camp even better. If she does end up with Maxon, I’m really sad that young girls out there are reading this crap and think that it’s okay to let anyone treat you like this.
lots of twists in the plot
fun to listen to
characters well described
keeps you guessing - main characters fickle
