Listening to the characters gave a really good feel for what was going on and I was able to imagine the characters while I was listening.
I liked the part when Anita had a friend for the first time.
I would like to listen to her other works now.
Yes, the descriptions and characters are engaging. Another example of a society which somewhat reminded me of the giver. The narration is wonderful and I found myself relating to the characters and trying to figure out where I would fit.
It reminds me of The Giver in some ways because of the different roles and ceremonies. It also reminds me of The Hunger Games because of the action and the strong female character and the emphasis on using physical confrontation for elimination.
She brings a youthful voice that makes the character come to life. Her expression and emotion kept my attention.
I definitely stayed up in the wee hours of the morning listening because it seemed like there were no clear stopping points.
This book definitely had an ending that kept you wanting more.
Yes, I would definitely listen to this again just to hear a lot of the different verse and names.
Skafloc trying to win his sister's love.
Skafloc was my favorite and definitely had a range of emotions and development as a character.
This book put me through a range of emotions through the characters.
It ranks in the middle. The end left a little to be desired, but it definitely held my attention.
I liked how the characters developed and the descriptions.
The narration gave a life to the different characters.
It was mostly a book to make you cry or just feel sick at some of the things that happened. I saw how someone compared this to Carrie and it definitely had a lot of the same feel.
It was fun to try to figure out where he would end up next and wondering what different places would be.
I liked the prize the best because of the variations and dialogue it provided.
I think the same as most books that are read out loud. I could spend my time enjoying the book instead of wondering about pronunciations.
Congratulations, you won a prize...
Comical, Magical, Fun
Judy was my favorite character because I could relate to her and her feelings about her work, her sister and her life.
This book made me laugh a lot.
I really enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. The characters were pretty interesting and I could really relate to some of the characters and how they viewed their jobs and lives.
Tragic, hopeful, realistic
When Hazel read over what Augustus wrote about her.
She expresses the book using feeling and emotion and it is easier for me to imagine the characters. Sometimes I lose some of that when I try to process the words in the books and especially pronouncing and wondering how to pronounce certain sites and names and she did it beautifully.
It would be a long sitting. I think because of the emotional heaviness, it was better to handle in several sittings.
I appreciated the teenage view and the views of the parents in the book as well. I think it captured the desire of still wanting to live the life you have no matter how short it might be.
