This story was absolutely amazing! First off, the author is amazing. To create such a world and characters that are so easy to connect to and feel what they are going through is quite a gift. Second, the narrator did such a beautiful job capturing the emotions that the author wanted to convey and making the listener feel them. When America's heart was breaking I felt like mine was too. She had such a lovely natural story telling voice and then when she did the dialogue parts you could tell she was conveying them like she had felt them and was going through them.
Addicted to happy endings!
I am not a huge fan of love triangles. As a married woman I know I will never be a part of a love triangle....so why can't I put this book down???
What is this political significance that has the rebels SO VIOLENT? America has become emotionally invested now (in Maxon), so her inner dialogue is much more emotional. She is getting distracted by her emotions and cannot see the political significance she needs to share with Maxon.... I wish that Maxon could trust America with more secrets, but she needs to prove herself trustworthy....and she hasn't......yet. :D
Maxon has impressed me from the moment we met, and we find out so much more about Maxon in this book (yea!!) We get to see the ladies lead their own royal tasks, like learning about court functions and practice directing them. You grow to like other girls in the competition (who knew?), and even feel a little sympathy and jealousy towards them (dresses, parties, and drama, OH My!).
Also, didn't realize this was a miniseries on tv...
I love reading and listening to books. My sister suggested this series to me after we both had been heartbroken over another series (we got way too attached to the characters--problem #1).
If you're looking for a sweet love story, full of twists and turns and moments that you can't decide who's side you want to be on...this is a great option!
The only reason I wouldn't give it 5 stars on everything is because--the first and the last books are better and I don't particularly love the voice of the woman reading the book, she took awhile to get use to.
I love listening to books via audible. Most days I am unable to sit down and read a book but I am able to listen to books during my morning and evening commutes. The narrater has a wonderful voice and is truly talented. I really enjoyed the first book "The Selection" and I am enjoying the second book "The Elite" as well. Next up is "The One" and I am very excited to find out everything that happens!
Probably not. However, it was the best in the series.
Maxon of course.
You begin to associate her with America. She becomes America.
"The Monarchist's Bachelorette"
I liked it alot. the back and forth between who she loves is slightly annoying bit it's an original idea kinda predictable but still a good read or listen well written and read
