I've seen him on the news. Followed the stories about what happened in Ohio. John Smith, out there, on the run. To the world, he's a mystery. But to me . . . he's one of us.
Nine of us came here, but sometimes I wonder if time has changed us - if we all still believe in our mission. How can I know? There are six of us left. We're hiding, blending in, avoiding contact with one another...but our Legacies are developing, and soon we'll be equipped to fight. Is John Number Four, and is his appearance the sign I've been waiting for? And what about Number Five and Six? Could one of them be the raven-haired girl with the stormy eyes from my dreams? The girl with powers that are beyond anything I could ever imagine? The girl who may be strong enough to bring the six of us together?
They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They tried to catch Number Four in Ohio - and failed.
I am Number Seven. One of six still alive.
And I'm ready to fight.
Also included is a sneak listen to the first chapter of the next book in the series. Enjoy!

Yes, but I haven't even looked at the print version. Listening just saves me time.
I saw the movie, "I Am Number Four" and wanted to know what happened next. This book was a good continuation of the story, but it doesn't end at the end of this book either.
He adds some pretty good character voices and dramatic effects.
For a YA book it's probably not bad .. except that the male narrator, supposedly a 16 year old boy and other youths of about the same age, sounded like a middle aged smoker and it was hard to develop any empathy for him or the characters he portrayed. Sure I might be interested in knowing what happens next .. but not enough to endure his narration. I hope I got this on sale as it wasn't worth much.
This book was full of action and intrigue. I cared about the characters and wanted them to succeed. I felt like I could see the action happening - this could make such a thrilling action packed movie.
Book one and two are very enjoyable and hold your attention from beginning to end. Book 3 was killed by the extra narrators and a slower story. Get the first 2 and think about the 3rd.
The author needs to spend some time with teenagers and learn that they do not talk like idiots. John Smith was likeable and desirable because he was devoted to one woman for his life. How disappointed I was to find that this loyalty did not even last weeks. He is not likeable at all in this book.
Needed a better dialogue.
The story line is exciting with alot of action.
I can listen to it on the way to work and back. Plus my eyes get a rest from starting at screens all day.
The plot reminds me a bit of Super Man or perhaps Superfriends. Mix that with teens just learning how to use their powers and fight a great evil and I think of Harry Potter.
Anyone performing a book brings another dimention into the enjoyment. Especially nostaligia if your parents read to you as a child.
I can't wait for my Audible token to refresh this month so I can get the next one.
I was always a slow reader! All of my friends would read fantastic books faster than I ever could dream of and then one day my roommate suggested audible! Now I listen every time I get a spare moment! I love fantasy and fiction, stories with layers of connections and a twist in history always catch my attention.
LAYERS of CONNECTIONS!!!! This books has twist and turns and if your not paying attention you will miss how people, times, & places are connected!
That's way to hard to answer!
I am Number 4 was a great performance!
I enjoyed the first book in this series, and was annoyed at having to wait a year for the second. The author of the series releases 1 book every year in August. This is the second in the series, and though the first was good enough that it was hard enough to wait a year, this one was even better, and ends in such a way that I didn't know how I was going to make it. It is really good, and you wont be disappointed, but you will be frustrated at the wait. IM SURE YOU WILL LOVE IT THOUGH!!!!
