    "The Worst Narration Ever!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I have listened to numerous audio books. Some good and some bad but have never listened to one where the narrator ruins the story. I am not sure I am going to be able to finish this book. It is completely overacted and many of the voices he uses are down right grating on the ears. I have never been this disappointed in an audio book. I do like the story but could not recommend this audio version to anyone!!!!

    "GREATNESS!!!!"

    I just love this series. This is the first book, and its good, but the second is Amazing!!! Its action, and you never know where its gonna lead you... I also watched the movie, and found it to be pretty good. Can not believe they scrapped the second movie. WARNING This series is addictive, and they only put out one book a year in August. Its one of the books in my library that I have read several times however, and I don't think you will be disappointed...

    Story
    "Horrible. Really really horrible."
    Would you try another book from Pittacus Lore and/or Neil Kaplan?

    I only read this book because I recently finished the Hunger Games series, loved it, and thought perhaps I was being overly snobby in dodging young adult action books. Seems my snobbery was merited in this case.

    The dialogue is ridiculous and totally unlikeable, as is the narrator's voice, literally and in this audiobook, figuratively. The voice work is maybe the worst I've come across in audible. The motivations of the characters are obvious and sexist, making this book tedious to get through.

    The only reason I'm finishing it is because I paid full price for it.

    I think I just vomited in my mouth thinking of the 6 hours I have left to listen to this book.

    "Terrific story"
    Where does I Am Number Four rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    A very captivating story, a nine out of ten. One which I couldn't wait to continue listening to. Often, I barely listen to a novel, because they are usually humdrum. Often I get tired of the profanity used by the authors. This has none of that, or very little.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The development of the characters. Some others introduce too many characters, so that one loses sight of who is who.


    What about Neil Kaplan’s performance did you like?

    Good changes in voices. An excellent reader.


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

    Not everyone who lives among us is a monster.

    Story
    "Climax after climax in this action novel!"
    What made the experience of listening to I Am Number Four the most enjoyable?

    I liked the combination of teen angst and alien beings. It reminded me of the TV series


    What other book might you compare I Am Number Four to and why?

    TV series


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Just enough foreshadowing to let you in on some of the mystery. The dog is a good example of this.


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

    I did not like his voice for # 4. I thought it should be more mature - like Mark's.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this teen novel very much even though I am a grandmother.

    "movie was better"

    It is a decent read, the only real complaint i have (other than all of the loose ends at the end) is that the main character is more "sissy lala" than I'd like. It has potential but i will just have to see how the sequel turns out.

    Story
    "Good story, shallow narration"

    Why is it young adult novels get narrators that don't do justice to the characters? The narrator for this story made all the female characters sound the same--like a gaggle of silly valley girl stereotypes--and did no justice to the boys. The kids in my household found the narrator so annoyingly disrespectful of teen intelligence and emotional range that they dumped the recording after the first few chapters. This is just sad.

    Story
    "Disappointed by inappropriate content."

    The story was very interesting and exciting as I was listening with my kids. Then out of nowhere, part way into the book, starts some very bad language. We hoped it was isolated and wouldn't continue especially as the story itself was so good. However, it didn't stop and got worse. What we did was buy the hard copy of the book and I finished reading it out loud because like I said, the story line is very exciting and I could skip the bad words so the kids could finish the story. Something else you may want to know is that about half way through a romance starts that is described in a way that made me cringe and I skipped over that as well. Unmarried physical romance should not be glorified at any age let alone age 15 with a "beautiful" girl and "hero" type guy which every kid wants to be. As an aside, the "gorgeousness" of the lead girl is way overemphasized. "Gorgeous" girls didn't earn that somehow. They were accidentally born that way. Have your children read the Uglies Series. It is very good at undefining "pretty" and they are very thrilling action/fantasy/dystopia books that have a very few mild words like rhymes with 'kissed'. And in the second of the series a young couple lives together but they are literally brainwashed that it is okay and even encouraged by the dystopian society to do whatever you like (sounds familiar?) but nothing inappropriate is ever described or even hinted. Just that they live together.
