Simply put, this story is well written, kept me interested and leaves me thirsting for what happens next!
A bookworm since a child. Love audible books.
I would rate it about 6/10 of all books I have listened to.
The opening scene grabs your attention for the book, and it does a good job of providing back ground for the story.
The opening scene was probably the most memorable in the book.
Hidden away because of what she could do, others want to use her powers.
This story is about mega humans. The girl is who kept inside her house and away from people all her life--Only to have her world turned upside down and find out that she is a mega human. The scenes described with Wolfe are a bit creepy.
If I don't answer your call its because I'm totally in love with this audiobook!
Absolutely positively definitely never!
I almost didn't even finish this book the narration was so bad… I think that the story has a good promise but just not here.
I wasn't sure about this story, but I'm glad that I stuck with it. I didn't love it but it was enough to keep my interest. Although I was hoping for more suspense and action, I liked the ending and the possibilities for the future books. I'll probably try the next one in the series to see where the author goes with it.
She uses a flat, whiny tone which is meant to sound like a teenager but instead just insults the listener.
I couldn't finish the book, so I don't have a specific scene. However, the writing was clumsy at best, and often jarring. I can't imagine how any self respecting editor let this go to print as is.
Just don't do it. There are lots of bad books out there that have redeeming qualities, but this is not one of them. It's just awful.
This book had decent reviews and so I tried it. I kept wanting it to get better and kept listening and hoping...but no. It may be a young adult novel, but I need to look into that further...if so, I still wouldn't recommend it. The story is a good idea, superhuman mutant type people and the agency that tries to oversee them. It just never gets going on a good plot. At first the teenager's mother is missing, who is also a super human, then the agency saves her from a wolf creature (which just doesn't fit the story) and most of the story is at their facility. She is a whiny, know it all teenager, which doesnt make us like her, so the book doesn't even have that going for it. At one point the wolf guy alludes to raping her before killing her, which is a plot twist just thrown in for effect and really doesn't make sense at that point. Maybe if you say the word "rape" in a book, it makes it more scary...I don't know. I hate leaving a book unfinished, so i finished it, but only because it was only 5 hours...I would have given up after the first two if it were a long one. I think it is great that Audible will take a book back that you don't like, but I wouldn't do it because it was my fault for poor judgement. BTW, the narrator is not that great either. She sounds like a monotone teenager, which is probably what they are going for, but it is tedious to listen.
The story was okay, but I never identified with any of the characters. I think the narrator did a good job, but the story fall short. The last couple chapters earned the couple of stars for me.
The most enjoyable experience of listening to Alone is that it is fast-paced.
Rogue from X-Men (and you'd understand that if you read the comics and the book) and Paranormalcy because of the way Sienna was raised.
I have no idea.
Sienna reminds me a lot of Rogue from the X-Men in some ways and Paranormalcy in others. Wolf is one of the worst (and by this I mean horribly good) characters I have ever read and I loved his Karma.
All that said, I'm feel too old for this book and don't think I'll continue with the series. Although I'm sure my 17 year old daughter would love it.
