Pawn | [Aimee Carter]

Pawn

For Kitty Doe, it seems like an easy choice. She can either spend her life as a III in misery, looked down upon by the higher ranks and forced to leave the people she loves, or she can become a VII and join the most powerful family in the country. If she says yes, Kitty will be Masked - surgically transformed into Lila Hart, the Prime Minister's niece, who died under mysterious circumstances. As a member of the Hart family, she will be famous. She will be adored. And for the first time, she will matter.

Publisher's Summary

You can be a VII if you give everything.

For Kitty Doe, it seems like an easy choice. She can either spend her life as a III in misery, looked down upon by the higher ranks and forced to leave the people she loves, or she can become a VII and join the most powerful family in the country.

If she says yes, Kitty will be Masked - surgically transformed into Lila Hart, the Prime Minister's niece, who died under mysterious circumstances. As a member of the Hart family, she will be famous. She will be adored. And for the first time, she will matter.

There's only one catch. She must also stop the rebellion that Lila secretly fostered, the same one that got her killed...and one Kitty believes in. Faced with threats, conspiracies and a life that's not her own, she must decide which path to choose - and learn how to become more than a pawn in a twisted game she's only beginning to understand.

    Story
    "Surprisingly addictive"
    What made the experience of listening to Pawn the most enjoyable?

    The narrator did a wonderful job bringing the story to life. A well written, unique take on the dystopian young adult genre.


    What other book might you compare Pawn to and why?

    The book can and surely will be compared to Hunger Games. The heroine has the strength we all admire in Katniss--the two share the impoverished background and lack of control in regards to the situations they end up facing.


    What does Lameece Issaq bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Lameece did a fantastic job differentiating the characters--breathing accurate personality into the dialogue. Simply outstanding.


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

    A pawn becomes a Queen.


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth the listen/read. I highly recommend.

    Story
    "don't have to pay attention while commuting"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It's a young adult read that doesn't transition enough into being enjoyable for adults too. The issues are a bit too simplistic. I'd try to enrich the subplots, but then it would lose its place in its genre. So, leave the book as it, it just wasn't right for me.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It was good as it was actually. I'd have psychoanalyzed the cast a bit more. More followthrough.


    Which character – as performed by Lameece Issaq – was your favorite?

    Can't recall. Enjoyed the reading overall though.


    Did Pawn inspire you to do anything?

    Pawn put me in mind of Hunger Games, wherein you can rebuild a lot about a person's externals.


    Any additional comments?

    Good book for listening to but not giving your full attention to. So like, while driving, doing errands, etc.

    Story
    "Not as strong as others in this ilk"

    Another in the young heroine leads the rebellion breed of young adult novels. Not a strong of character development or plot as Hunger Games or Divergent but an enjoyable listening experience. Kitty has just turned legal age and must be tested for assignment to one of the six classes of citizens in future America. Her disappointing upbringing in an orphanage in Washington D.C. leads to a less than satisfactory class and work assignment in a distant city away from her slightly younger lover interest. After seeking an alternate life style on the edges of society she is recruited by the heads of the country to serve as a replacement for a deceased third in line successor to the throne. To tell you more would spoil the enjoyment of Pawn.

    The story makes several half-hearted stabs at making social commentary about the divisions which separate the ‘haves’ and the ‘haves not’ of the country and the abuses which corrupts those with absolute power. The author inflicts no particular judgment allowing the reader to decide for themselves the proper level of outrage they wish to assign to any particular atrocities exposed through Kitty’s assumption of the secretly deceased niece’s life.

    Pawn is a perfectly adequate expenditure of a credit and may just be the start of as entertaining series of novels. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

    I'm a horror nut! Zombies in particular! Epidemics, end of all things! Also enjoyed Game of thrones very much!

    Story
    "Hunger games, Twilight, Etc.. Pawn fits in nicely!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Pawn to be better than the print version?

    Unknown, I do not read printed books. After finding audible I doubt I could go back to it now if I ever did.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Without spoilers I'd say I enjoyed the twists & turns that kept me guessing, trying to figure things out and finding myself surprised again & again


    Any additional comments?

    If you like the Young Adult Adventure, Love, mystery style writing then you'll like this story
