They killed them all.

    "good story"

    Good story - started listening to see if the movie might be interesting and found myself drawn into the characters. I really like it and want to see the movie now.
    Can't wait for the next part to come out. Loved the characters being built and the plots. Thought it actually was ok for my middle school kids to listen to/ read also.

    "To Much Missing"

    This book would be interesting to a preteen. I purchased it after seeing the Motion picturewith my Daughter. The book starts very well. It has a great story line that runs out of gas at the end. This is the RARE time that I must admit the movie was better than the book.

    "juvenile"

    I agree with Brian. Poor writing and very juvenile for adult readers/listeners. Also, the narrator is annoyingly overdramatic with some voices dripping with insolence and other very nasal voices that quickly become irritating. Most of the conversations in this book are 5th grade level, at best, not believable for high school characters, and certainly not interesting to adults listeners/readers. This is a good book for the 10-14 year old crowd. That being said, the underlying story is interesting. I just wish it was more science fiction and less junior high level drama.

    "GGGRRRRRRRRRRRREAT BOOK!"

    I could NOT put this one down (or turn off the MP3 player, should I say?)! I am 40 years old (not a teen), but I found it VERY EXCITING and entertaining. The narrator was great at changing his voice (especially into the deep FRENCH sounds.

    I LOVED this story, was sad to hear it end, and CANNOT WAIT for the second book to come out!!!!! TAKE A CHANCE ON THIS ONE, you won't be disappointed!

    "good story outline"

    They seem to have started with a good outline for a young adult story series. The actual writing of the story in my opinion is just okay. Worth listening to, but nothing exceptional. I found the narrator to be very irritating in the beginning, but I got used to him after a while. They had some good ideas in the story, but other places are pretty predictable and down right corny. Most books are better than the movie, but I think this will actually make a better movie than this book. The final big battle scene is pretty weak in the book.

    "VERY DISAPPOINTED!!"

    This book had a LOT of potential, but it has the feel of a book that was made to be a sequel for not too bright readers. Here are a few of the things that turned me off...

    First, they turned it into a "GREEN" novel and I feel that by doing this they cluttered up the book with a bunch off junk that just didn't work. The evil bad guys use weapons that suck the life out of the planet, but don't really do much. All the while getting killed by regular old guns. If they were so smart and evil, why didn't they just get some guns of their own... DUH!

    The next thing that REALLY turned me off was the whole martial side of this book. Whoever wrote it is an idiot on weapons and tactics! The good guys train their "special" powers during the entire book, but never train/use martial arts, blade weapons or guns. Until the end fight, too bad as they are VERY effective! Also the author is an idiot about guns.... double barreled shotty that holds 10 rounds... really, I want one! One time in a fight the good guy unloads a gun on purpose and then uses it to scare some people.... ARRRGGG! Once again a lot of this is due to the "GREENNESS" of the book.. weapons are bad, etc...

    Its really too bad as the storyline could have REALLY worked and gone somewhere!!

    "kids book"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    i think this book would be good for children between the ages of 10 & 12


    Would you ever listen to anything by Pittacus Lore again?

    no.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Neil Kaplan?

    Any one would be better. Bronson Pinchot or Oliver Wyman are the best narrators out there and would have done an excellent job narrating this book.


    What character would you cut from I Am Number Four?

    I dont think i would cut any of the characters. Its the voices of the characters that need to be changed.


    Any additional comments?

    i may have been able to stomach the book if it wasnt for the narrator. He gave the characters voices a cartoon like quality. Example is the nerdy friend, He has a constant whiny, nasally voice. It was absolutely horrible.

    "poorly written"

    The speaker was very over-dramatic. And the book was very predictable and dry. This was said way to many times : "The (blank) was so (black) that (blank)." The premise of the book was good though, but it was hard to sit though... very unrealistic dialog and narration.

    "A story for kids"

    The "Brat Pack" goes alien. Sci-Fi by and for teenagers. An immature tale for and about an alien superhero-to-be and his high school days.
