The Rise of Nine Audiobook

The Rise of Nine

Until the day I met John Smith, Number Four, I'd been on the run alone, hiding and fighting to stay alive. Together, we are much more powerful. But it could only last so long before we had to separate to find the others.... I went to Spain to find Seven, and I found even more, including a tenth member of the Garde who escaped from Lorien alive. Ella is younger than the rest of us, but just as brave. Now we're looking for the others - including John. But so are they....

Until the day I met John Smith, Number Four, I'd been on the run alone, hiding and fighting to stay alive.

Together, we are much more powerful. But it could only last so long before we had to separate to find the others....

I went to Spain to find Seven, and I found even more, including a tenth member of the Garde who escaped from Lorien alive. Ella is younger than the rest of us, but just as brave. Now we're looking for the others - including John.

But so are they.

They caught Number One in Malaysia.

Number Two in England.

And Number Three in Kenya.

They caught me in New York - but I escaped.

I am Number Six.

They want to finish what they started.

But they'll have to fight us first.

    "No ending???"
    Would you try another book from Pittacus Lore and/or the narrators?

    maybe but I don't want to be let down at the end only to have to wait for the next book to come in in another 2 years?


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    ?


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Good - loved his intrepretation of #9!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Rise of Nine?

    Yes! The stupid "transmissions" of Pittacus Lore. I could not understand them.


    Any additional comments?

    Only with the end - didn't like how it just "stopped"

    "Just more of the same."
    What did you like best about The Rise of Nine? What did you like least?

    I am not a big fan of the multiple readers. The books are now being written to quickly, and lacks the same fun of the first book. The end recordings of Pittacus Lore, are barely "Audible", and are read in a nearly demonic voice. I believe the intent was to have a digital sound but it was not delivered well.


    Would you recommend The Rise of Nine to your friends? Why or why not?

    If like book series get, if you are just a casual listener I would get out now.


    What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

    Too many voices and the women's voices are very close to each others in tone.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    NO! The first movie was bad the second can only get worse!

    Story
    "could of been better"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Cut short the story arc with the girls 6, 7 & 10. It was boring and dragged the book out. Entirely to much writing just to introduce 1 character.


    What could Pittacus Lore have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Extend the arc with the boys and bring all the loriens together earlier rather than waiting for the end of the book to do it.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    The fact that 4 and 6 would separate even if they had different agendas they are aliens being hunted and it makes no sense to me that they would split up. One of the two characters might not be happy but they would always stay together considering how hard they fought to find each other.

    "Fun read."

    The story is a little spread out, but it's a fun mindless story with a good audible performance.

    "EnJoyable"
    Would you try another book from Pittacus Lore and/or the narrators?

    Yes


    What did you like best about this story?

    In this story I realized the guards goal was to become Pittacus Lore to defeat the enemy


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    No changes to the narrator but the recording messed up bad on Chapter 16


    Did The Rise of Nine inspire you to do anything?

    No inspiration from the Rise of Nine - I did not see number nine excelling or the guards who were identified doing anything exceptional. So maybe. The Rise of Nine left me wondering who or what will rise?

    "Not up to standards"

    I was let down by this one, it was ok but not up the standards of the first two. The extra narrators killed this book and made it hard to listen to.

    As a mom of teenagers, I spend a lot of time in the car, and a lot of that time is spent listening to Audible. Because of that, I tend to listen to a lot of YA novels, and my reviews will include the "Mom View" of cussing, sexuality, etc...

    "So-so story, ruinous narration"

    Having read the previous two books, I was eager for the third installation. In the second book, the narrator's use of Sam's voice had him sounding just a few points above retarded. Sorry, but it's true. Nonetheless, I was interested enough in the story to spend a credit on this as soon as it came out.

    Ugh.

    The narration ruined what was probably a decent story, but I honestly just couldn't tell. The male voices were all caracitures. Awful. And *every* sentece was just *so* emphatic... Even going to the bathroom was a life or death situation... I'm shuddering as I think about it.

    Awful.


    **On the upside, there wasn't much profanity, & no sexual situations to bother younger readers.

    "It was over before I knew it!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'd recommend this series to a friend because it is very entertaining. When I got to the end of the book I couldn't believe I had already finished 10 hours of listening. It just flew bye. I was totally immersed in the author's world.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character, by far, Bernie Kosar. He's every childs dream! A loyal companion that can turn into an alien killing beast.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    I particularly like the narrators' ability to make you feel the emotions the author is trying to convey.


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

    I did, without even planning to. Started at work, on the commute home, and then finished it up at home, flew bye.
