This book has a lot of love and hate. I really recomend this book it is very awsome. Any one would love this book!! Also there are a lot of cool characters like America, and Macon. Those to at the most mentioned in the book.
It might just be me but I could not stop thinking how this is basically the bachelor lol. I don't recommend these books what I'm really interested in (the society problems,rebels etc.) are rarely touched I'm getting sick of the same crap between the love interests on the night side a very quick read!
so this book pretty much sucked. the main female in the first book was a little annoying but i had no idea that it would be so much worse in the second. she made the most stupidest mistakes and choices ever!! she engaged in an unnecessary love triangle and it took she almost getting kicked out to make up her mind about the prince. I would not recommend this book
I have listened to this and the first book and find it interesting enough to want to go to the next one.
Things I have issues with are the slight lack of emotion, or the incorrect emotion, applied to the narration.
I also find some of the authors interaction between the characters not quite believable or realistic.
A pleasant elevation in dramatic excitement from the direction of the king in this book.
And, seriously America, it took you THIS long to decide on a boyfriend?!
All in all not bad.
I got the first one in this series in a cheap sale, and picked up the second one thinking 'whatever, I'll finish it,' but this is where I gave up on our hapless narrator. Ever read a love story where the back and forth between the characters makes you actively give up and stop rooting for any of them? That's this book for me. None of these people should date each other at all until they've worked through and let go some of their passive aggression and honed their communication skills. A ten minute adult conversation between literally any two points in the love triangle would clear up so much- but then I guess we wouldn't have enough suspense to last us a full trilogy.
Count me out for book three.
Miss knows a little of everything
The narrator kind of drawled through the story. The slowness comes across as whiney and is distracting. The story is original and interesting but slow. This three book series could have been done in one or two books. The middle book does nothing to further the plot and could disappear without being missed.
Think Hunger Games + The Bachelor = The Selection Series
It's fun reading, a bit if mind candy. Doesn't take a lot of energy to read. If you are looking for a diversion and enjoy the traditional rags to riches story line then this one should hit home for you. I'm looking forward to the next story in the line.
This was a fun book, not a thrilling page turner, it was good for a road trip and out on long runs when i needed something else to concentrate on but didn't have to pay super close attention.
