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.
This is my first book by Susan Kaye Quinn
no I would not.
Yes I would go see it.
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.
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.
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.
This is my first book by Ashlyn Selich
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.
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.
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.
Combine them all in a set and sell them as a set. Then it would feel worth using one of my whole credits.
