    Story
    "I didn't make it one hour"
    Would you be willing to try another book from Pittacus Lore? Why or why not?

    Yes, I think so.


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

    No, not even if it was free.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll never know if the story was a good one (although, from reading other reviews, I think it would have been). It was the narrator who ruined the experience for me. His female voices were just high pitched, they lacked depth and quality. The voice of the school principal was equally atrocious.

    Story
    "Too Slow..."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes. It's a story to pass the time while working.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The concept of the 9 having to be hunted in order and the fact that they all know where they stand in the hunt.


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

    Well, I'm going to purchase the next book....


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

    It was a movie. The movie adaptations are always quite bad. Especially if FOX has anything to do with them.


    Any additional comments?

    A good enough beginning to make you wonder how this is all going to turn out for the Loriens. But I'm use to books like this moving a lot more swiftly.

    Story
    "A whole lot worse than I thought was possible"

    When this showed up for sale, I picked it up. The synopsis looked good and I needed a book. I still regret the purchase. This is one of the worst books I've read in ages. I'm willing to suspend my disbelief to an amazing degree sometimes, but this book demanded too much of me. It was as if the author forgot parts of his own mythology. The magic and science of Lorien are interesting, but ultimately inconsequential. The bad guys were cartoonishly awful. His characters (none of which I found remotely relatable) acted bizarrely for the sole purpose of moving the plot along. If you're going to have an unrealistic plot, you need for your characters to behave realistically. The level to which the authors failed in this endeavor is hard to overstate. And (I'm sorry, but I just wanted to scream this the whole time this book was playing), who tries to escape from baddies from Mogadore by moving to a state that literally has a city called Mogadore?

    I'm familiar with Neil Kaplan's work in some video games he's done. You can hear that he is a gifted voice actor, but the only voices passable in this were Four's and Henri's. The other characters sounded like caricatures and every single one of the female characters he voiced sounded utterly vapid. Granted, the writing didn't help these female characters, but the voice put it right over the top.

    My $5 were not completely wasted, however. My nine-year old son really enjoyed this. He's begging me to purchase the next in the series. I refused. He can just go get it from the library and read it himself. I'd rather be thrown to the Mogadorians than hear any more of this.

    Story
    "I Love the Pittacus Lore Series"
    What did you love best about I Am Number Four?

    It is easy to get into the story. While at moments it is a bit juvenile, it is young-adult fiction. The relationship John (#4) has with the female character reads like a typical high school crush. And, while this is not my favorite part of the story, it helps to develop some of the idiot moves he makes. For me, it makes his character authentic.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sam is definitely my favorite character. I am not really sure why, but I would like to think I could be friends with someone like him.


    What about Neil Kaplan’s performance did you like?

    I know a good amount of reviews did not like Kaplan's voice, but I think he does a great job. He voice comes through like a strong man. When watching the movie I Am Number Four, you get a visual of the character, and I could hear Kaplan's voice suiting that same picture. Also, I do think he did a good job adjusting his voice for different characters.

    Story
    "Good, But Not Awesome"

    This is a good story. Really, my only complaints are technical ones. There were just a few moments in the story where I questioned how believable the situations were, and the narrator seem to use the same voice for a lot of different characters. These are not major flaws, but they were enough for me to give only 4 stars instead of 5. The story is engaging. The premise is really cool. And there are many, many moments that truly draw you into the emotional experiences of the characters. I can totally see why they wanted to make this a movie.

    "Easy entertainment"

    Some parts were probably aimed at the teenager market (used 2x speed :) but decent if not sophisticated twists.
    Its pretty tough to find good sci fi and this author kept me entertained during the daily commute. I've just downloaded the next book ready for Monday morning :-)

    "Held my interest."

    An amazing tale, well narrated and surprisingly better than expected. Not my typical genre for reading, yet I hope to enjoy The Power of Six just as much.

    "Dialogue... Only weakness"

    Honestly the only drawback to this book is the dialogue between Sarah and John. It's almost like the author took ever cliche about love struck teenage girls to build a hollow character who suppose to have some depth to her but never comes a cross when she speaks. The performance was great, but Mark James voice was a little too dumb jock for me. I'd give 4.98 stars if I could.
