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.

    "Nope. Nope nope nope."

    I enjoyed the first book and immediately started on the second, but I very quickly realized that in book two, America Singer began losing brain cells at an incredible rate. She seemed like a reasonable human being at the outset, but soon all she could talk about was how confused she was. That was almost all that happened in the whole book--"No Maxon, I won't leave because I might like you...just wait indefinitely. And don't talk to any of the other girls. Just sit tight while I go make out with Aspen." I mean, I am an extremely indecisive person myself, and she made me look like Judge Judy. Notable exceptions to this confusion include the time she pointlessly told her father about some very sensitive information she had sworn to keep secret, and those other times when she wasn't confused because she very confidently leapt to completely insane conclusions. After landing at these conclusions she of course needed to take swift, rash, extremely decisive action to sabotage herself (and those she claimed to care about) at every turn. Great job, honey. Why is this even a book?

    My other complaint is the narration. Perhaps it is to some people's taste, but the EXTREME breathiness of nearly every single word basically made me want to scream. Please stop whispering.

    "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
    "failing momentum"

    I got the first one in this series in a cheap sale, and picked up the second one thinking 'whatever, I'll finish it,' but this is where I gave up on our hapless narrator. Ever read a love story where the back and forth between the characters makes you actively give up and stop rooting for any of them? That's this book for me. None of these people should date each other at all until they've worked through and let go some of their passive aggression and honed their communication skills. A ten minute adult conversation between literally any two points in the love triangle would clear up so much- but then I guess we wouldn't have enough suspense to last us a full trilogy.

    Count me out for book three.

    Story
    "Too slow and losing interest."

    The narrator kind of drawled through the story. The slowness comes across as whiney and is distracting. The story is original and interesting but slow. This three book series could have been done in one or two books. The middle book does nothing to further the plot and could disappear without being missed.

    "Mind candy"

    Think Hunger Games + The Bachelor = The Selection Series

    It's fun reading, a bit if mind candy. Doesn't take a lot of energy to read. If you are looking for a diversion and enjoy the traditional rags to riches story line then this one should hit home for you. I'm looking forward to the next story in the line.

    This was a fun book, not a thrilling page turner, it was good for a road trip and out on long runs when i needed something else to concentrate on but didn't have to pay super close attention.

    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.
