Nice, quick listen.
Yes. It was a nice, quick listen. It was entertaining. The narrator was good, but I found his Margo voice really annoying. I enjoyed the characters and the story, but found the end to be somewhat disappointing.
Probably Q. Lacey and him seemed like the most real character. I felt like the other characters seemed like caricatures and didn't really seem very well rounded.
Not completely. I started listening to it at work. I had to stop due to working (lol), and ended up finishing it after I got off work and woke up. I did finish it in less than a day though.
Yes, it's been a year or two that I've read and listened to it. It's such a good book, and very relevant to issues currently going on, and will probably always be going on. There are a few strong themes in this book, the view that women are baby incubators, and also that Christian values need to be present in all laws, that are very important in our current political climate.
Well, it's a dystopian look into the future. So you could compare it to other dystopian fiction. It's well written, and not YA fiction though (I'm not putting down YA fiction btw. I enjoy it, but this isn't YA).
In a book like this, it's hard to pick a favorite scene, because there aren't many happy scenes. I did like her flashback scenes though, and it was interesting to see how her before life contradicted with her current life.
"Better never means better for everyone, he says. It always means worse for some."
It's a quote from the book, which completely describes the basic overall theme of the book.f
Funny, sad, real.
Listening to his evolving relationship with his child hood friend was interesting.
Listening to him talk about when his grandmother died was very sad, and I really felt for him.
I don't care for the prompted questions for this particularly book. I feel like my answers aren't going to make you want to listen (or read) this book. But you really should. It was my favorite book that I read/listened to in 2013!
I turned it on in the car as we were driving to an out of town doctor's appointment. I had my two teenage kids in the car with him. Initially, they groaned. Ugghhh, another one of mom's audio books! Within the first 20 minutes, we were all listening. We were laughing, and all really paying attention to the story.
There are some controversial topics. Alcoholism is definitely discussed. Along with bullying, racism, etc. But these are topics that are occur in real life. The author narrates this story, and he does a good job. It's entertaining, thought provoking, sad at times, funny at times. It was an excellent book.
Somebody who could pull off katniss. It needs to not be an old lady.
I will not listen to the rest of these books if the narrator is the same. I can see her doing great with regular children's books, but this book calls for somebody more edgy. I am so disappointed because my kids and I loved this series.
