Publisher's Summary

This program also contains seven bonus radio transmissions from Pittacus Lore!

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.

    Story
    "Narrator's voice is unbearable."
    Would you try another book from Pittacus Lore and/or the narrators?

    I love the series, but every time I buy the audio the narrator's voice is annoying and unbearable. I have had to go out and buy the books instead. I would only buy another Pittacus Lore book if they changed the narrators.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Haven't finished it. Have to buy the books instead.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The Power of Six also had awful narrating. The female voice was fine at times, but the male voice was unbearable.

    I am dyslexic! If it wasn't audible I would not even be able to know what's in a book. I found out I love books.

    "Great story!"
    If you could sum up The Rise of Nine in three words, what would they be?

    Kept me going


    What other book might you compare The Rise of Nine to and why?

    This was an interesting read. I didn't really want to stop listening to it. It has to have an ending. What's going to happen to these kids? And there still one kid missing. So there must be another book in the making. Until then, I have no chose but to keep waiting.

    Story
    "Great Stroy, Terrible Narration"

    The Story is fantastic, and anybody whose read the Lorien Books can tell you that. Friends coming together against all odds to battle evil and all that wonderful stuff. The Problem with this purchase is that the book is narrated by several people. But they don't separate the voices by character. Whoever's narrating (And they change that by the character's perspective) does all the voices. Which is fine, until the end where a different person starts doing 4's or 9's voice and it's completely different from the rest of the book. Very aggravating.

    Story
    "Rise of yet another book in the series"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Combine it with the previous book and next book so and condense them


    If you’ve listened to books by Pittacus Lore before, how does this one compare?

    Meh


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    The main character


    Do you think The Rise of Nine needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes, and it does, several most likely because the series is a bit of a cash grab


    Any additional comments?

    Decent clean book (some mild exclatives at times), but really short and the series is looking like it's going to be a big cash grab.

    I listen to books while running and walking my dog so on average about an hour day and like books that have a good pace to them.

    Story
    "Finally the story seems to be going somewhere!"
    If you could sum up The Rise of Nine in three words, what would they be?

    slow building story


    What did you like best about this story?

    This book merged several story lines that have been building for a while. At the same time it kept some things unresolved nicely.


    Did the narrators do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Generally, I found the narration flat and characters were either stereotypically (i.e. number nine as a surf "dude") portrayed or hard to distinguish from one another.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall I enjoyed the story but at times i found the plot predictable and felt it was moving a little slowly. I have to agree with some of the other reviews i have read that the radio transmissions were somewhat pointless and added very little to the story that we did not already know.
