I will have to admit that I was drawn by the cover art. The story was not a let down, I felt that the narrator was good. The story line was interesting although sometimes frustrating, and not in a "love angst" way. I am looking forward to the next one, and I believe that is the sign of a good book. I would recommend this one.
Very detailed, great plot building, many characters easy to keep up with them.
The evolution of humanity even in a sterile examination room.
Yes, she rocks again. Her range is subtle when it needs to be , distinct when appropriate, wonderful emotive range and when she does male voices, I hear male characters.
All of it.
If you like Divergent, or Hunger Games, or Darkest Minds... Well this isn't like any of them except that it is based in a dystopian society and you will love this one as well.
No- his voice range for the male characters was good. HATED his female voice. Couldn't take them serious.
Yes, but only with a female narrator. I even feel a little horrible for saying it feels so unfair, but, ugh... Very distracting and grating.
I was caught up too much on his voice in the female role. Couldn't forget the voice was coming from a male.
Yes... Maybe... The scenery would be great and bush pilots and mountain climbing interesting. I felt that the two main characters "jumped" into their relationship too fast.
I might read the hard copy. I haven't finished the audio and not sure that I will. The female lead voice is just grating. I like more of a build up on a love story and didn't find Megan very likable.
I don't have time to read, so couldn't say.
Chubs was superb, although... So hard to choose just one. The author through character development and spot on dialogue makes you care about all of her players, including the darn minivan! I found myself looking for more from all of them, craving their next interaction, the same way her main character Ruby did.
So many t choose from, but if I were to pick just one it would have to be the big "reveal" 3/4 into the book. Or maybe the first action scene where we meet Liam and Chubs...
I laughed out loud several times, and my heart squeezed painfully through much of it too.
I find myself migrating to the YA series more and more, caught up in the dystopian worlds that seem to be spinning in ever widening directions. This is not Hunger Games or Divergent or Enders Game, this is truly like no other currently out there. Likable, believable characters, a smart story line and thought provoking big ideas. Oh and did I mention the slow burn love story that wove its way through out? And Chubs... A must read!
A different story line? The characters were so flat and uninteresting, I had zero attachment to anyone even three hours in.
It might have turned me off of epic YA, hard to tell just yet.
Slow, dull, bored- with that being said I normally really enjoy her.
No- and I have loved all of This authors other YA books.
I normally finish books, it's a matter of pride, even if I don't thoroughly enjoy them. I tried so many times with this book and finally just gave up. Thank you Kelley Armstromg for giving me so many hours of enjoyment with your other work, this one is just not for me. I will be on the look out in the future for other stories, but won't continue on with this one.
As a recent connoisseur of young adult fiction, mainly the para romance type, this book was recommended to me. As I am a 30 something mom of two, the only way to "read" a book is to have one read to me. I found the narrator distracting, and sometimes horrible. At one point she had to demonstrate an Irish accent that was just this side off laughable. With that being said, I thought the story itself was pretty good, although I was having a hard time relating to the main character at times, I will chalk this up to the fact that I am not 15 anymore. I would recommend this book to others, but probably not the audio version.
