I loved the movement between the past and present. I had no idea there would be so much about the Holocaust (pretty intense) but once I settled into it, it was amazing.
I like multiple narrators so on that level this really worked for me. The writer of the story's voice changes to a character in the book when passages are read.
All things sage were interesting. Also the love of the Daily Bread owner
I think this really illustrates what emotional baggage we put on ourselves. Sometimes we need to sit back and examine if we really own it or not. Deep cleansing breath.... =)
1/4 in it was a ****, 3/4 in it was a ** and now that I finished it is a **.5.
Give a dog a bone and explain a little of the futuristic terms and ideas. Was that the girl who crossed The Trail who she killed inn the end?? I may need to pay more attention but, I don't think so....
A whole different history of the west than I ever knew. Not what I was looking for in a book but, an interesting history non-the-less. The violent, graphic nature was shocking and the story not so deep. No one to root for.
So many interesting thing happened in this book. It could have gone so many great places, but it didn't. By 60% through their was so much bleakness but, 90% through still the same. It never rose above. It was very depressing! He was with his wonderful, cultured and loving mother until like 11 or 12 years old yet she dies and he becomes a miserable human... What the heck? He took nothing from her? Are there really parents like his and his friend with wild drugged out children raising themselves? So much hope, so little delivery!
I am mad at Veronica Roth so I will not speak of her here.... Emma and Aaron did a fabulous job of narration. Getting used to Aaron took a minute, but his job was impeccable.
If you read 1 and 2, of course you must read this one but, not because it was good. It fell flat, lacked the depth that drew us into 1 and 2. I really wish they had released this after the movie came out because I couldn't wait for the movie before and now I feel, "Mehhh" about it. Not good!!
Great as always.
Not so much.
Was she rushed for number three or is this it, the plan all along?!?
To much repetitive drama. Book should have been half it's length. I love him, I hate him, I love him....Argh!
I would power down on the crazy town!
They finally started acting a little more normal and the book ended! I didn't want the next one until then. Now I will listen to the next just to see if they go a little more normal or crazy town returns.
I really liked the room-mate! I think I might have liked it better if I read it (very rare to feel that) because I wouldn't have imagined Gideon quite so freaking intense and when he says her name it would have been more loving and not crazy.
If Kate Hudson where Eva an Josh Holloway as Gideon and we went 50% less on the intensity.
While the performance was really good, it would have been better if Gideon was not performed so intense. When he calls her name in passion 'wanting/ urgent' would have been better than 'crazy/ pained'.
While I couldn't wait to get back to the listening each time and I thought the book was very good, she relies on a few really BIG coincidences to get it done. If you can ignore that you will really enjoy this book!
How they realize they are so far off track there lives have gone.

I loved and hated the ending. You can never really know someone.
