Flynn is stuck - depressed, recently dumped, and living at his mom’s house. The supermarket was supposed to change all that. An ordinary job and a steady check. Work isn’t work when it’s saving you from yourself. But things aren’t quite as they seem in these aisles. Arriving to work one day to a crime scene, Flynn’s world collapses as the secrets of his tortured mind are revealed. And Flynn doesn’t want to go looking for answers at the supermarket. Because something there seems to be looking for him.

This just wasn’t good - uninteresting story - amateur narration - rarely do I quit on a book but I had to because I was too bored to pay attention.

Four US Navy SEALS departed one clear night in early July 2005 for the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border for a reconnaissance mission. Their task was to document the activity of an al Qaeda leader rumored to have a small army in a Taliban stronghold. Five days later, only one of those Navy SEALS made it out alive. This is the story of the only survivor of Operation Redwing, SEAL team leader Marcus Luttrell, and the extraordinary firefight that led to the largest loss of life in American Navy SEAL history.

I usually pick on the narrators - This guy was great - I don't know why everyone is complaining - Did you expect Mark Wahlberg or what?

What if your whole world was a lie? What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything? What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected? The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of listeners in Divergent and Insurgent.

Would you try another book from Veronica Roth and/or Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford ?

The author sold out just to finish a trilogy - which discounted the first two wonderful stories. Kind of disgusted.

Has Allegiant turned you off from other books in this genre?

Lame boring story

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narrators were good - just got bad material.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Allegiant?

ALL OF IT - START OVER!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

A first grader could narrate with more emotion. Therefore the story was unappealing.

First time writing a review and only doing so because I feel betrayed by the members who rated this book highly - I have no idea how anyone found this story remotely intriguing or well written. I want a refund.
