I enjoy a storyline that isn't regurgitated from another book; so this was different and worth the listen. However, I hated the performance. Listening to his real voice wasn't too bad, maybe a 3. But all other characters were as if they were 100 years old. Honestly, if the story wasn't so interesting I would have stopped listening.
Unique concepts, great characters that you can believe in. So tired of the same ole stuff, just changed a little to make it a new story; so this series is definitely worth the purchase.
Maybe a little Divergent, mixed with a little Enclave!
No, but she did an excellent job. Having listened to audiobooks for 25+ years, a narrator can make or break a story so its always great to listen to someone who's great.
A great book doesn't just have moments, but is moving and exciting throughout. This book makes you want to keep listening to see what happens next and that is why I think it's worth the purchase.
OMGosh, I was bored. 3 hours into it and I was wondering why I was wasting my time. Slow, uninteresting, bored to death. I quit and 90% sure I won't bother to finish it.
Under The Never Sky
Not that I know of
Sorry, there really wasn't any character that had depth, insight into anything that was happening. I seriously started daydreaming while listening to the stupid thing!
Don't waste your credit. The 5th Wave, Haven, Enclave, The 100, One Second After and especially !!! the trilogy starting with Going Home are alternatives that would make you happier!
Keeps you entertained
It's something that seems like its close to happening now; so reading the story gives us an idea of where things would go, what could happen, a direction to take if it ever does.
Preparedness = Survival
I read the first book, Going Home, because it wasn't out in audio yet. This second book I not only listened to, but read at night then would forward to where I left off. Yes, it's that good. Next to "One Second After", I'd say it beat that one. Looking forward to reading the final book now.
Yes, but only due to the narrator.
Different concept. Emma's tenacity.
This book wasn't perfect, but was worth the purchase. Book 2 (Barely Breathing) was long and drawn out, I probably wouldn't have finished reading the book version. Book 3 (Out of Breath) is a don't waste your money book. Reads like a soap opera.
Book 1 was good, but this one was harder to listen. Just when I thought I'd call it quits, something interesting would happen. It was worth the purchase, but just barely. And Book 3 wasn't worth the purchase at all.
Not if it was a series. Feels like she watches soap operas and keeps the ridiculous drama going. Not a book that keeps your interest throughout, that's for sure.
Emma of course.
Well, it has a follow-up and no, it wasn't worth it.
Narrator is best, book is really not worth purchasing. I loved Book 1, then Book 2 was not as good, but good enough to warrant the purchase. But this one feels like the author watched too many soap operas. I'm about 60% into it and will NOT finish it.
EXCELLENT narrator. I just started listening to Enclave and the horrible voice of the narrator made me realize how important it is! I can barely stand to listen; so I really appreciated Kate Rudd's ability in this series.
Maybe Book 1, not the other books at all!
Purchase Book 1 and 2, but I can't recommend this one.
I could barely listen to this book. Valley girl voices? Really?
I have read others, and this story isn't so bad if it wasn't so hard to listen to it!
Great storyline, excitement, well written
Absolutely! And the sequel was just as good if not better!
Highly recommend. I can't see where this won't be made into a movie. Entertaining and worth the $$
A plot, excitement.
Nothing was remotely exciting about this 2nd book. She clearly did not think through the premise of the total book. I was completely bored to tears.
Save your money. This second book is 10% of what Matched was.
