    Soon-to-be college freshman Evie Claremont had hoped that once she'd arrived on Crestwood's campus, the nightmare that she'd been having would go away. It hasn't. She may be an inexperienced 17-year-old, but she's grounded... sane. She looks for rational explanations to even the strangest circumstances. Since meeting sophomore Reed Wellington, however, nothing makes any sense. Whenever he's near, she feels an attraction to him - a magnetic kind of force pulling her toward him.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this book, the story is good


    How could the performance have been better?

    Inflection for one and her use of slang was almost painful.


    Any additional comments?

    5 chapters in I couldn't take it any more, the narration was so bad I went out and bought the book so I could find out what happens without being subjected to the monatone horror. The story is good tho, could have used more lead up. The heroine went from being oblivious to suddenly knowing without any freak out and didn't even have a stage of disbelief.

    Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children. But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and sprawling parks spread across the planet.

    Would you listen to Red Rising again? Why?

    Yes, I've already listened to it twice and I'm certain it won't be the last


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters and the societal structure that while is clearly a product of of the authors imagination is so true to reality. The world we live in is set up the same way just not so blatant with who's on top and who's on the bottom.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Mustang literally hands over her brother.
