If it had a warning label or rating system. I am adult but I am very careful about the books I read, I personally, don't like stories that contain cursing or sexual content. I wasn't expecting it, and had to stop the book it got so bad. I generally stick with G and PG things and this was PG14 or Perhaps R. Not my cup of tea
It started out so good! Then... downhill.
Good Narration, Friendly girl -next store.
It would be great if Audible had a rating system like they do for movies G,PG, PG -13. MA ect...
This book started off well, it had a great premis, interesting characters and was well read. The story is fictional but belivable- for the first half. Even sci-fi needs to feel grounded. The second half of the book then went into the relm of weird and kind of creepy unbelivability. I would not recamend this book for children or even teens - Once upon a time young adult science fiction meant you were safe to listen as a family this story unfortunatly followed twilight into a place that no one really likes.
** Spoiler Alert!*** This story changes perspectives several times among several different characters so the story was not as smooth as it was in Meyer's first book. The addition of the second protagonist and her fairytale retelling felt a little twilight-y and was disappointing after reading Cinder, the first book in the series. I did enjoy hearing more about Cinder's story and I am excited to read the third book. Overall it was pretty good!
Surprisingly, very good.
I like cinderella re-tellings but they can be very similar to one another. This was by far one of the most original cinderella stories I have heard. Dystopia meets fairytale.
Her inflections. I really enjoyed this narrators performance she was very easy to listen to and told the story well.
The book sounds weird and I read over the description a couple of times and thought this book sounded stupid but It appeared on a 'teen classics' for teachers so I took a chance. Glad I did! I couldn't put it down, it was a fun listen.
