    "Something a Little Different"

    I am really enjoying this series. I have read so many books and some are so very predictable. It was time for authors to really write some quality stuff in this genre. Its a great read even if you are not into sci-fi strictly.

    Story
    "Ok at first, got better."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed the book although it took a while to get used to the narrators voice.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Story was slow moving at first.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    yes, story was slow moving in the beginning


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I did see the movie. That was probably part of the problem with the narration...I had preconceived notions as to what the characters sounded like.


    Any additional comments?

    I am willing to listen to the next book in the series, even though I had a lukewarm reaction to this book. Part of the problem with seeing a movie before reading/listening to the book. I did enjoy the 2nd half of the book more than the first.

    "Poor Narration."
    Would you try another book from Pittacus Lore and/or Neil Kaplan?

    Yes


    Would you be willing to try another one of Neil Kaplan’s performances?

    No


    Did I Am Number Four inspire you to do anything?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I already knew this book was for a younger audience and was prepared for that. However, I did not anticipate the narration to be what it was. The choice of voices for the characters was not attractive at all. The women's voices made me cringe. It was like audio drag. I even felt like the main character was lame from the way it was read. I was able to imagine how a male teen would actually speak and it made things better. But I really wanted to listen to this book. I may just read the others myself.

    "Faster"

    If the reader went any faster in some places you wouldn't know what he was saying. Even though I realize there is a lot going on and its used for emphasis Im sure there is a better way than yelling and rushing words. Love the story, not the telling of it so much.

    "Fun Story, if you can get past the flaws"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I feel like there is a tendency for the teens to be super-intelligent, deep planners in one instance only to have them turn around and do something very, very foolish in the next. I remember being a teen so I am empathetic to the hormones raging and whatnot, but this book goes a bit overboard with that. It feels like the characters spend too much of the book doing things just to keep the plot moving in a certain direction, not because they would actually do what they are doing. Mild, mild spoiler if you know absolutely nothing about this series: the protagonist could solve so many of his problems if he would remember that he is basically a super-hero. This is especially frustrating because the author covers most of these problems well and so the ones he doesn't really stand out. Finally, be prepared to hear some of the same things over and over. Almost every intense thing happens "INSTANTLY!" in this series, for example.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is the sort of book I call "Ear Candy". What I mean by that, if you can't guess, is that it's a fun book with a fast paced story. If my boss walks by and talks to me, I'm not worried I will miss an important plot point. I like to listen to these while I do the boring stuff at work. I've often wished for a good Avengers or Spider-man audiobook and this sorts of fits in that empty spot in my heart.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Many of the reviewers of this book are spot on with their critique of Neil Kaplan's reading. In my opinion he is a great reader when he is just reading. Very animated. His character acting is ridiculous for this sort of book, though. He would be PERFECT for something meant for very young children. I almost stopped listening the first time he did a female character. He makes Sam sound like a stuffy-nosed nerd from a 90's cartoon. John Smith, the- mild spoiler alert- superhero level lead sounds like a 9 year old almost all the time. ANY secondary character would sound right at home in a Sponge Bob episode. I would say this in fairness, though- I did eventually learn to tune out the silly voices and make them sound in my head like they were probably meant to.


    Did I Am Number Four inspire you to do anything?

    Read the next two books.

    "Great story with strong characters. Action packed!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of I Am Number Four to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the print version but I loved the audio book. I listen while I commute to work and I missed my exit several times in the past couple weeks because I was so engrossed in the story!


    Which character – as performed by Neil Kaplan – was your favorite?

    Neil Kaplan is a great audio performer and the voices of both Four and Henri are distinctive and memorable. Because I had listened to The Rise of Nine before I listened to this one, I was disappointed to find that only one reader was used for the performance of this book. In my opinion, no male reader can produce a believable female voice and I found the high-pitched, feminine voice of Six to be completely incongruent with her impressive warrior character. She and Sara are so much more believable in the second and third books in this series.


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

    These books would be great in film--I'd love to see it!
