I wouldn't recommend this book. It ended up being pretty disappointing even though it sounded like an interesting idea.
The main character seemed very immature for her age, and kept using all kinds of slang that was distracting and got to be very annoying as the story kept going.
My favorite scene would have to be when Molly first uses her powers. The author did a very good job creating a picture of what was happening.
Considering the book ended on a cliffhanger, it probably could use a follow up, but I don't think I'll be reading it.
I bought this book when I got Warm Bodies, and actually enjoyed that a lot more than I originally expected to. Save yourself the time and money/credits and get that one instead.
I listened to and enjoyed the first two books in this series, so I would probably be willing to try another Veronica Roth book. Emma Galvin narrated both of those and I would listen to her in another book. I'd never listened to Aaron Stanford but he did well with narrating Tobias, female voices weren't spectacular.
I might listen to another one of her books if the premise sounds interesting to me. I didn't love how she wrapped up this trilogy so I would proceed with caution.
I didn't really enjoy any scenes in particular. The story felt like it was moving forward because it had to, stand out scenes didn't factor into that.
I'm not sure if this will succeed as a movie. Considering Divergent is being released it's not inconceivable, but the story felt kind of dull and muddled so I'm not sure how it would do as a movie or as a TV show.
I was disappointed overall by this book. I enjoyed Divergent, was mostly entertained by Allegiant, but this felt like it was so different from the other books in an unexpected way. I can get behind being surprised by a story and seeing where the author takes the story, but this one has felt like it's wandering aimlessly through a world of which I want no part.
I had a tremendous amount of fun listening to this book. I think I was on the edge of my seat through the whole thing, but it was entertaining suspense that made it impossible to stop listening. It definitely took an unexpected turn at the end, but if there were more stories set in this apartment building, I would happily read them since there are all kinds of ideas to be explored in this world.
I've listened to Ray Porter read the Joe Ledger Series, and he definitely doesn't disappoint with this book. Every character had a distinct voice, and he does accents very well, even for female voices.
I was disappointed to find Chapter 41 plays at the end of part one, and then again at the beginning of part two. Chapter 42 is nowhere to be found. I'm actually surprised more people haven't noticed this or at the very least mentioned it, since it leaves out a rather creepy element from the story! At first, I thought maybe this was intentional (42 is supposedly the answer to the ultimate question and there are MANY questions about this apartment building) but I sought out another copy and Chapter 42 was there.
