Publisher's Summary

The selection began with 35 girls. Now, with the group narrowed down to the Elite, the competition to win Prince Maxon's love is fiercer than ever. The closer America gets to the crown, the more she struggles to figure out where her heart truly lies. Each moment she spends with Maxon is like a fairy tale, filled with breathless, glittering romance. But whenever she sees her first love, Aspen, standing guard, she's swept up in longing for the life they'd planned to share.

America is desperate for more time. But while she's torn between her two futures, the rest of the Elite know exactly what they want - and America's chance to choose is about to slip away.

    "Fantastic!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Elite to be better than the print version?

    Yes, Amy does an amazing job. I just had to closed eyes and pretend I was there.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I didn't have one, it was all good.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, the scene where America caught the Prince making out with another girl. My stomach dropped.

    "Good Follow up"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes - I have recomended the Selection to many of my friends - and you HAVE to read the next part!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    That I was suprised at a few things that happened - didnt see it comming and I love that!


    What about Amy Rubinate’s performance did you like?

    I liked the narration and thought she did a great job with different voices - I knew who was who just by her voice


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

    Yes and I did!


    Any additional comments?

    I was desperately waiting for this book to come out after reading - The Selection. I absolutely loved the first book - and I really liked the second. But I have to agree with other reviews - the love triangle did get a little too much attention and huge circumstances got a back seat. The back and forth with her decision was a huge rollercoaster and in the end came full circle to the same place we started. I am rooting for Maxton and hope that the third book can delve a little more into the surrounding circumstances that just America deciding one then the other.

    Story
    "A barely dystopian version of the batchelor."

    This is terrible. It's twilight with ballgowns. Whiney protagonist, who do I choose? The boy I grew up with who loves me but thinks I'm just some simple girl to push out babies or the price charming I can't stop yelling at but that I don't really know because I couldn't be bothered to get out of my own head? Don't waist your money.

    I am a librarian working as a state worker by day and a FB stalker at night. I like thrillers, YA and, and just about anything in between.

    "Love This Series"
    Where does The Elite rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is not in the Top 10, but it is fun for different reasons. I would rank it somewhere around the middle. Not the worst, but not the best. The narrator is fine, but the story lacks sometimes, however, that is not her fault.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is Marlee. She is so sweet and loving. Oh, and Celeste, she is someone you love to hate.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite part was when America tries to save Marlee from the caning. It showed how much she loved her friend and the risk she was willing to take for her.


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

    Yes, this was one I wanted to listen to in one sitting. I actually did while driving on vacation!

    Story
    "Why do I keep reading this?"

    This book keeps making me angry that the stupid 17 yr old keeps making horrible decisions. And even worse, keeps getting away with them. Any boy, much less a prince should have given up on her long ago. I think the writer is so shallow and story line so weak. So Why then have I not given up? Maybe it's my dogged tonicity to persevere in the face of mediocrity, or my undying hope that there is a deeper story waiting to unveil itself. Perhaps it's because I bought book 3 by mistake first and so I wanted to see the first 2 books through to get my money's worth. I hope book 3 doesn't disappoint, or that will be the end. Happily ever after or not.

    "I'm hooked."

    I don't know what it is about this book but I'm addicted. I really can't pull myself away from how when I think everything will be perfect for America, she winds up doing something crazy. Great Book!
