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.

    "Not as good as the first, but I'm still listening!"

    I felt that despite his 'reasons', Maxon displayed selfishness and possessiveness. This made me reluctant to read or listen to the third. However, as I like most everything else, I still want to finish the series. I love the woman narrating, but I could tell that some of the screaming male voices were difficult for her during the climactic scenes. She still does a good job, but her voice is far too breathy and sweet. It made me giggle.

    Story
    "It's a good thought, but infuriating."

    The way she goes back and forth between aspen and maxon is ridiculous. I found myself screaming at the main character for being such an idiot and for not standing up for herself when she should have. I don't know that I'll even make it through the next book, I love princess love stories, but the way maxon is all over all of these girls and she doesn't tell him that it's a big part of why she feels the way she does is infuriating. I guess I just like strong female leads more than the kind that just take the crap given to the and eat it without even attempting to argue.

    "Less interesting than the first..."
    What did you like best about The Elite? What did you like least?

    I like the premise of this book series, and I understand that bad things have to happen in order for the plot to progress, but my goodness does everything have to go wrong? It became quite dull and depressing, which after the first book, I wasn't anticipating. I had such high hopes for the story but I was disappointed. So what I liked the least would have to be the lack of excitement within the storyline.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kiera Cass again?

    Yes


    Which character – as performed by Amy Rubinate – was your favorite?

    Marlee


    Could you see The Elite being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes - The stars could be Emma Stone (America) and Hugh Dancy (Prince Maxon)


    Any additional comments?

    Will not be continuing the series - this one was a let down.

    Story
    "America's indecisiveness is starting to annoy me"

    Story wise, I seem to prefer The Selection more, the characters just seems to grow more and more indecisive by the chapter, especially America.
    *HUGE SPOILER ALERT*
    I don't understand why she keep going back to Aspen when she had already made a decision with herself that she is in love with Maxon. It doesn't help either that Maxson can't seem to make up his mind either even though he said very early on that the whole competition will be over once America decided that she wants him, yet the first thing he did was go off and date other women.
    *END OF SPOILER*
    However, despite all that, I did enjoy the revelation of the bigger underlying plots of the story hinting about the motives of the rebels and Maxon's family.
    It was all so gripping that I had finished the whole book in one sitting and will be continuing onto the next book, The One. I just hope all these love triangles, squares, pentagon, or whatever it was will go away soon, but I guess it's to be expected given the plot of the story, 35 girls and 1 prince.

    "Addicting!"

    I love this series! Ready for book 3. I haven't liked a female character this well since Katniss & Bella.

    "Surprisingly Good!"

    At first it seemed like a 2nd filled book in a series but it had some surprising twists &turns & a good ending. I'm 50 but like good YA books. I highly recommend this series.
