Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes the storyline was really boring and Evie really got on my nerves. Goodness you can't save and love everyone. She keeps making the same mistakes over and over again: making a bad situation worse. For someone who played sport she is not a very good team player. For heaven sakes girl you are a new Angel who barley knows anything listen to the experience Angels and learn a thing or two and then fight fight fight. Reed was also a little overbearing still being over protective and keep Evie in the dark. He's been around long enough to know better. Loved everyone else which is why my rating was not lower.

What about Emily Woo Zeller’s performance did you like?

Emily Woo Zeller was great as always.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed the first book and got through the second book just fine, but this I really didn't like thank goodness for Zeller performance because I would have stop listening if it was someone else reading.

What did you like best about When She Woke? What did you like least?

Everything was laid out in the open finally, there are decent people out there willing to give you a second chance.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Okay so she got away, now Hannah needs to learn from your past mistakes and make better choices.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes

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

No

Any additional comments?

Really!!!! Hannah knew what she was getting into when decided to sleep with this married man. How foolish was she not to protect herself from getting pregnant and or contracting a disease. You have to look out for number one (yourself). This book took things to the extreme. Hannah made mistakes that a child not a full grown woman makes. She had her eyes wide open.

Aiden's wife is the really victim here. He gave her a disease which led to her infertility and he breaks their marriage vows. Yeah he's the type of guy I want my child to bring home to met me....Not!!! I don't agree with the treatment she received by the halfway house, her mother and brother-in-law. No one should be treated badly for making a mistake, non of us are perfect and we all fall far from grace.

LOVE and compassion is the greatest medicine we all need in our lives.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would, it was so freaking AMAZING, I did not expect this book to be that good. it's not another sweet romance without anything else of substance that makes for a good time passer. Going into the Darkest Minds, I didn't really know what to expect. I never heard of Alexandra Bracken or Amy McFadden but together they are pure perfection. I love dystopian novels are one of my favorites of 2013.

Ruby at the age of ten and placed in a government-run rehabilitation camp for kids like her - kids who, for whatever reason, began to show signs of extraordinary abilities. Trapped at camp for six years, Ruby believes she is exactly where she belongs after what she did to her parents.

I did occasionally find myself wanting to yell at her in frustration but those moments were small and far apart. The main character was smart but not a Mary Sue, she made mistakes and this made the book better to listen to no one is perfect.

What did you like best about this story?

It was fast paced and somewhat surprising. I hated the idea of being able to accidentally erase someone's memory of you. That feeling kept me wanting to know how this trilogy will end.

What about Amy McFadden’s performance did you like?

Solid job all around.

Any additional comments?

That ending that ending that ending.

What would have made Spider's Bite better?

This book spent more time focusing on what someone wore, looked liked, drove, ate, and the eyes the eyes enough with the eyes. I can't believe this book got more than 2 stars.This story when no where.

What character would you cut from Spider's Bite?

All

Any additional comments?

This story really should have been wrapped up in one chapter. Just tell the guy aleady about his dirty partner.

If you could sum up A Plague Upon Your Family in three words, what would they be?

Witty, entertaining, gross.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Tommy and Mike.

Which scene was your favorite?

McDonald's for one and the highway chase. The internal dialogue throughout this book made me laugh so hard, I love it.

Any additional comments?

If you like zombies, there is enough of them for you, If you like humor this book is more your style. I wouldn't want to live in this world, but Mark Tufo's vision made it a great ride. I can't wait to get the next book and I am so glad I don't have to wait for it to be released.

I couldn't imagine anyone else narrating this series. Perfect timing every time. Sean Runnette I am a fan now.

Enjoyable.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Cole, many layers to this guy. I didn't see that ending coming.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Sorry Amy, but I don't like your main character voice. Please give them some more life. I have been putting off getting this book and the 1st one because her. However I did like the story.

Would you listen to Zombie Fallout again? Why?

Yes, I need to remember all the jokes.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I need to get the next book. I have some unanswered questions.

Which character – as performed by Sean Runnette – was your favorite?

Tommy

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The Cat fight between Mike and Tim.

Any additional comments?

This book was so funny in so many ways. Too much internal dialogue though, but that's where a lot of the funny jokes came from. So I can live with it. I wasn't sure if I would buy the next book, but I want to find out what happens next.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I don't know, I was not impressed with story, it was so slow and nothing really happened. I guess I must read way too much to be entertained by this story.

Would you be willing to try another one of Eve Bianco’s performances?

Yes I did like the narrator which was the was the only reason I finished the book, I just kept hoping the story would get better. Not sure I will continue with the series. Can I get my money back?!!!

Bored out of my mind. Makeup your mind already!!!!

Would you try another book from Kiera Cass and/or Amy Rubinate?

Not sure. Nothing happened throughout this book. America's ever-changing feelings for Aspen and Maxon was frustrating. This book didn't have enough plot for a whole book. A change of scenery might be great for all.

Would you be willing to try another one of Amy Rubinate’s performances?

Not all she is a boring narrator. I guess I have been spoiled by more seasoned narrators how act out the stories and not just read.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I wish America would just leave already, I am so tired of this love triangle. This story was so predictable. Why can't these characters learn how to communicate and avoid all of the miss understandings.

Any additional comments?

Nothing happened throughout this book. There was no rime or reason to it and it was just America going back and forth between Maxon and Aspen and crying over her feelings. This book could have been rolled up in the Selection and should not have been splint into two separate books. Also keeping the identity of her ex-boyfriend currently guarding her safety and hated royalty? It is going to blow up in her face.

With all that said I will still get the last book, but it will be on the last of my list.
