    Story
    "A Different Bit of Sci-Fi."
    Where does Alone rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would rate it about 6/10 of all books I have listened to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The opening scene grabs your attention for the book, and it does a good job of providing back ground for the story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The opening scene was probably the most memorable in the book.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Hidden away because of what she could do, others want to use her powers.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Ok but not a page turner."

    This was good but maybe I'm just not a fan of this type book. It just wasn't a thriller or page turner for me.

    "Interesting Start"

    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.

    Story
    "I'm honestly surprised this got published."
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She uses a flat, whiny tone which is meant to sound like a teenager but instead just insults the listener.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Alone?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Dumb."

    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.

    if I could think of anything negative, it would be that it was over too soon.

    "The ending was the best part"

    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.
