This was not what I expected though I really wasn't sure what it was about to begin with. Written as if it were a made for television reality series, it takes a bit to realize the evil taking place against the unwilling captives has been created by beyond-rich men with a hunger for something unique to satisfy the neverending lust in their hearts and minds.
The story is very short but seems to cover a lot of ground without bogging down in detail. I'm not really sure how to rate it as I've nothing to compare its style with other than TV or a movie. The narrator was excellent and I would enjoy hearing more of her work.
I must admit that while I might not normally read something with this kind of plot, I'm hooked so I must wait for the next book in the series. There is graphic adult language but so far very little adult content.
I received this book as a free gift from the narrator and Audible. Thank you.
My best regards to the authors/voice actors who tirelessly provide quality content. Your efforts and visions shared are greatly appreciated
Interesting characters. It has me wanting more. I like this type of novel with some the characters having to meet challenges, with unforeseen twists along the way.
The Hunger Games. In The Preserve, you have characters put in a situation where it is be smart, adapt, and fight to survive. The ultimate game.
Karen Krause's performance is what I would call "chipper" and "engaged". Each voice artist is unique in their own ways. The main question, was the voice artist able to "put me in the moment"? Absolutely! I am wanting to hear more of the story. Karen was able to let me see the characters through her eyes. I felt I was there.
Absolutely. I want more!!!!
Nice range of characters. Compelling read.
I received this audio book in exchange for an honest review, and I honestly really enjoyed it. The story was great as was the narration, very enjoyable and went by really fast. can't wait for the next part
This audiobooks reminds me TV series where the contestants try to survive in the jungle. Not a new setting but interesting nonetheless. Very interesting audiobook.
Where it ended. why break this into two books? should have been just one.
I dont know. The book was good, just didnt like the lame cliffhanger that didnt need to be.
I would and I have. Karen is great
disappointment at the cliffhanger
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review,
I thought it is a great premise for a story, however it seemed as tho it was just starting to get good. you are just getting into it then, wham it's over. I will have to get the next books to find out the end? the writing was good. the narration was good. No complaints except the length. on to the next one.
If I wouldnt have been assaulted by "F" words. I had two in probably the first few paragraphs.
No "F" words.
I wish I could say, but barely got to hear. I look forward giving her a try in another book.
