    "Interesting"

    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.

    Story
    "A Hunger Games genre novel"
    What did you love best about The Preserve: Season 1.0, Volume 1?

    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.


    What other book might you compare The Preserve: Season 1.0, Volume 1 to and why?

    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.


    What about Karen Krause’s performance did you like?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely. I want more!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Nice range of characters. Compelling read.

    "Season1"
    If you could sum up The Preserve: Season 1.0, Volume 1 in three words, what would they be?

    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.

    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.

    Story
    "Couldn't get past the first few paragraphs"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If I wouldnt have been assaulted by "F" words. I had two in probably the first few paragraphs.


    What could Josh Hilden have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    No "F" words.


    What three words best describe Karen Krause’s voice?

    I wish I could say, but barely got to hear. I look forward giving her a try in another book.


    Any additional comments?

    Warning labels four obscene amounts of bad language.
