    "I couldn't turn it off"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would! Its a page turner or in this case a continues listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That you don't see the end coming at all.


    What does Joyce Bean bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love her change in voice. Even the teenage boys voice is different.


    If you could rename The Unwanted, what would you call it?

    Magical friends

    being dyslexic, I never read allot but I loved books...doesn't mix right? NOPE...wrong...Audible allows me to "read" at a pace that works for me and they have a great selection of books to keep me interested. I'm a fiction , sci-fi, and adventure books with strong female characters reader. I have been on a Vampire kick lately so female protags have been on my list.

    Story
    "Horrible-avoid this one..."
    What disappointed you about The Unwanted?

    It was boring, slow, and not that interesting.


    What could John Saul have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    re-write the whole book?


    Would you be willing to try another one of Joyce Bean’s performances?

    Not sure


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Sadness, Disappointment, boredom


    Any additional comments?

    I wouldn't ever recommend this book...maybe you can get past its boring story and a story that lacks the ability to made you care about the character or their plight. Good luck, and buy it on sale....

    "not to my liking."

    I didn't mind the story line at all, but it really was more like it had been written for young teenagers rather than adults.
