  • Allegiant: Divergent Trilogy, Book 3

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 55 mins)
    • By Veronica Roth
    • Narrated By Emma Galvin, Aaron Stanford
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    What if your whole world was a lie? What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything? What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected? The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of listeners in Divergent and Insurgent.

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

    I simply don't know were to begin the story was slow pace, repetitive and It had nothing to do with the previous books (witch were great) I kept waiting for the story to pick up but it never did. And although I really wouldn’t have minded the slow pace and the turn the author gave to the story to explain what was outside the city in exchange for a great ending what I got was just so, and I mean, SO disappointing that I can't believe it . WHY? What was the point to end it that way? So to answer the question I would say that in order to give 3 stars to this book (don't think it could reach 4 stars) I would definitely change the last chapters.

    What was most disappointing about Veronica Roth’s story?

    The ending.
    IT. IS. NOT. FAIR. I feel betrayed, angry, sad and frustrated.

    Have you listened to any of Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I’ve heard Emma Galvin in other audio books and I think she’s an exellent performer.
    I haven't heard Aaron Stanford before but think he made a good job.

    What character would you cut from Allegiant?

    All the characters in the bureau, specially David

    Any additional comments?

    I definitely DO NOT recommended this book I just can’t do it.

  • Open Minds: Mindjack, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (7 hrs and 53 mins)
    • By Susan Kaye Quinn
    • Narrated By Kelli Shane
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Sixteen-year-old Kira Moore is a zero, someone who can't read thoughts or be read by others. Zeros are outcasts who can't be trusted, leaving her no chance with Raf, a regular mind reader and the best friend she secretly loves. When she accidentally controls Raf's mind and nearly kills him, Kira tries to hide her frightening new ability from her family and an increasingly suspicious Raf.

    steven says: "Different, but still liked it."
    "Very good !!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Open Minds the most enjoyable?

    I have to say that I took a chance with this one, wasn't sure if I was going to like it.
    I'm sooo happy I did. T
    Being a fan of dystopian and sci-fi in young adult books this was exactly the type of book I was hoping for lots of surprises, a well-thought-out plot and great characters.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kira Moore tough heroine and very likeable.

    Any additional comments?

    Very good trilogy

  • Horde

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 3 mins)
    • By Ann Aguirre
    • Narrated By Emily Bauer
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    The horde is coming. Salvation is surrounded, monsters at the gates, and this time, they're not going away. When Deuce, Fade, Stalker and Tegan set out, the odds are against them. But the odds have been stacked against Deuce from the moment she was born. She might not be a Huntress anymore, but she doesn't run. With her knives in hand and her companions at her side, she will not falter, whether fighting for her life or Fade's love.

    MAB says: "Fitting Conclusion to the Series"
    "Wonderful conclusion !!!"
    If you could sum up Horde in three words, what would they be?

    GRIPPING, FAST PACE AND UNFORGETTABLE This book has everything, it's the right combination of romance and action with an amazing ending. Actually all three books are great.Well done, it was worth the wait.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I really enjoy stories where you forget all that is happening around you. Stories that are so well written that you start to empathize with the characters and their journeys. Stories that made you laugh and cry. Stories that you just CAN NOT turn off.
    This series is one of those and this last audio book is the perfect conclusion for an amazing Trilogy.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    The last one. I LOVE happy endings

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

    Yes, it made me cry and laugh

    Any additional comments?

    I happily recommend this book
