    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.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I don't like the Performance. I have fallen asleep three times trying to listen to this book. I think her voice is too monotone. The story though is good so far.


    If you’ve listened to books by Susan Kaye Quinn before, how does this one compare?

    This is my first book by Susan Kaye Quinn


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kelli Shane’s performances?

    no I would not.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes I would go see it.


    Any additional comments?

    I am just the first 5 chapters into the book, I like it. I like the premise and so far it's good. I just have a hard time with the performance.

    Eighteen-year-old Jenny Morton has a horrific secret: her touch spreads a deadly supernatural plague, the "Jenny pox." She lives by a single rule: Never touch anyone. A lifetime of avoiding any physical contact with others has made her isolated and painfully lonely in her small rural town.

    Where does Jenny Pox rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a great story. Super fun. I have an older teen and although I wouldn't have him to read this story with "approval" for the things in it, I think it's a good example of how kids actually are these days. I wouldn't stop him from reading it but I'd like to discuss it first. For sure this is NOT a YOUNG adult book. Do not let your pre-teens read this. Lots of pot smoking, sex and even drinking and driving occur. It's a fantasy book, but the characters seem real, they talk like the kids talk these days and it's very current with it's references to current things.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the premise and the fast pace. I listen on my lunch break and I look forward to my 1/2 hour each day.


    Have you listened to any of Ashlyn Selich’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first book by Ashlyn Selich


    Any additional comments?

    Yes some editing needs to take place. There are several places where the narrator is clearly repeating trying to get the best take. Someone needs to clean that up, it gets annoying.

  • FOUR The Transfer: A Divergent Story

    More Four! Fans of the Divergent series by number-one New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth will be thrilled by "The Transfer", the first of four new short stories told from Four's perspective. Each brief story explores the world of the Divergent series through the eyes of the mysterious but charismatic Tobias Eaton, revealing previously unknown facets of his personality, backstory, and relationships.

    What would have made FOUR The Transfer: A Divergent Story better?

    We pretty much already know all that is in this book. I think the upcoming books will be good/better and it would be fun to get Four's perspective when he meets Tris, but this book is so short it shouldn't be worth a credit from Audible. The author should have combined all the Four books into one. It feels a little like she is just trying to make money off the release of these books one a at a time. The story is great I loved it. I am happy to have background.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    not sure


    What aspect of Aaron Stanford’s performance would you have changed?

    He's fine.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from FOUR The Transfer: A Divergent Story?

    Four's initiation experience is so similar to the one Tris has in the beginning with the train etc, I would have liked to have had something different. I felt like I knew what to expect too much with this short story.


    Any additional comments?

    Combine them all in a set and sell them as a set. Then it would feel worth using one of my whole credits.
