    When Whit & Wisty were imprisoned by the wicked forces of the totalitarian regime known as the New Order, they were barely able to escape with their lives. Now part of a hidden community of teens like themselves, Whit and Wisty have established themselves as leaders of the Resistance, willing to sacrifice anything to save kids kidnapped and brutally imprisoned by the New Order.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the characters were a bit brighter and deeper. Even for teenagers, they were just not smart or interesting. If there was something more creative about the story - it just seemed to be borrowed from every other fantasy story.


    Would you ever listen to anything by James Patterson and Ned Rust again?

    Maybe some of Patterson's older stuff. I don't know anything about Ned Rust so I don't know.


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrators’s performances?

    The narrators were fine, it was just the story that sucked.

    Pi Patel has been raised in a zoo in India. When his father decides to move the family to Canada and sell the animals to American zoos, everyone boards a Japanese cargo ship. The ship sinks, and 16-year-old Pi finds himself alone on a lifeboat with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra with a broken leg, and a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon it's just Pi, the tiger, and the vast Pacific Ocean - for 227 days. Pi's fear, knowledge, and cunning keep him alive until they reach the coast of Mexico, where the tiger disappears into the jungle.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this audiobook. The narration was great and the story was incredible. The adventure doesn't start until the second half of the book but the first half was equally as interesting.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed a lot and may have cried a few times as well.
