Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Rise of Nine by Pittacus Lore, read by Neil Kaplan, Devon Sorvari, and Marisol Ramirez.
Until I met John Smith, Number Four, I’d been on the run alone, hiding and fighting to stay alive. Together we are much more powerful. But it could only last so long before we had to separate to find the others...
I went to Spain to find Seven, and I found even more, including a tenth member of the Garde who escaped from Lorien alive. Ella is younger than the rest of us, but just as brave. Now we’re looking for the others - including John. But so are they. They caught Number One in Malaysia. Number Two in England. And Number Three in Kenya. They caught me in New York - but I escaped. I am Number Six.
They want to finish what they started. But they’ll have to fight us first.

"Not exactly captivating"
I read the first of this series and couldn't put it down - read like a fast-paced film script and hooked you in all the way through. The second book was good enough, but seemed to have lost it's 'seat of your pants' drive. I thought I'd try the The Rise of Nine on audio to see if the series came across better in that format and it is not that easy to listen to - the female narrators are fine, but the male contributor is awful and sounds too old - it's all very shouty and disproportionately over-excited. It's like the narrator knows the story isn't that thrilling and is trying to inject it in. It misses the mark, sadly.
recycled story line. TERRIBLE epilogue where we are "enlightened" by a radio transmission by Psittacus Lore!!!!
yeah - alright
