There are many things about this book that are just bad.
1) The narrator seems to be on a speaker phone held up to a microphone.
2) The main character of the book blacked out a few times to wake up in a safe and other people fill him in on what happened. Once he was in the office of the main bad guy and passed out only to wake up in the hospital because he was rescued without the bad guy knowing.
Pretty much all of it.
The way it was recorded. I could hear papers or other background noise.
Connects Halo ODST to the Halovers even better than the game. Narrator is very good.
I don't know what it is about this series, but I love it. It's funny, interesting and creative. I just can't get enough.
Overall I like this book but it did start off really slowly. The action scenes take up 2% of the entire book and the rest of it is politics and discussing the situation . So all in all not the best but not the worst either
This one was hard for me to listen to it skipped over many months and real detailed for a few hours in the story and then jump ahead quite a bit.
The dialog goes in circles to where five minutes are the same two people saying the same thing over and over again. Like this:
"I need to know.
But you already know.
I don't understand
Yes, you do.
Can you just tell me?
I don't need to."
The bad guy was who I thought it was just because they put a lot of random facts about him without him being part of the story.
Less dialog that went in circles.
None. I think the characters did what they were supposed to.
No. I was so-so on the first two books and this one just killed any hopes of a good or even mediocre ending.
No I will try again.
The narration was good.
No, the first one is being made into a movie and I most likely will not be seeing it.
I prefer audio book because I don't have time to read.
I'm going to try the second book
I was in the middle of the road the whole time. I think Beatrice / Trice was too. Horrible things happen in front of her but does not show much emotion, even when she is shot.
One thing I don't understand is why being Divergent has a bad stigma in the book. Everyone who finds out shes Divergent tell her not to let anyone know because its dangerous and other Divergent people have disappeared. Why? It's never explained why Divergent people are so special. They can tell when they are in a simulation but that's only dangerous to the secret bad guys. No one should care but them.
The narrator was mono-toned and the story was boring. The characters change names and come to crazy conclusions.
This book was just random. It's like going to a Old Folks Home and listening to the rants of a half crazy veteran. There seems to be no point to the book and I was nodding off every time I pressed play.
No point, while it had science fiction points, it wasn't what I would call science fiction.
