    New York City has been decimated by war and plague, and most of civilization has migrated to underground enclaves, where life expectancy is no more than the early 20s. When Deuce turns 15, she takes on her role as a Huntress, and is paired with Fade, a teenage Hunter who lived Topside as a young boy. When she and Fade discover that the neighboring enclave has been decimated by the tunnel monsters—or Freaks—who seem to be growing more organized, the elders refuse to listen to warnings.

    Felicity Fairchild says: "It was supposed to be good."
    "A violent book for young people"

    Story
    Would you try another book from Ann Aguirre and/or Emily Bauer?

    The writing style assumes the reader/listener is an idiot. I felt like I was being preached to all the time.


    Would you recommend Enclave to your friends? Why or why not?

    No.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Emily Bauer’s performances?

    No - she sounds like she's smiling all the way through this book, even during dark battles and sad points. Terrible overall narrator, but she does some interesting voices.


    Could you see Enclave being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    It'd be a Disney film released straight to video with b-rate voice talent and terrible animation.

    Story

    Thoreau built his cabin near Walden Pond in 1845 on land owned by Ralph Waldo Emerson. Walden which is considered one of his best works, describes Thoreau's two-year experience as a resident of Walden Pond. Focusing on the concept of self-knowledge, he encourages readers to get to know themselves and the world around them.

    George says: "In defense of the narrator."
    "Awesome subject, terrible reader"
    Overall

    This book is wonderful, and I only wish the person reading it could get that. The reader sounds dead and uninspiried, and makes the book drag on and on. Do not purchase this read.
