I loved the book, but it is shorter than the other books which sucked for me. the only thing that happened was the rescue mission and that was it. I understand the and final installment has yet to come out but I was expecting more in the story. everything happened so fast. I needed more. 😔

another great read as always!

I have never been tempted to re-read a book, but this series has definitely made that a possibility. Emily Woo Zeller is the epitome of a fantastic narrarator. my heart broke when the book ended. Amy Bartol is a phenomenal writer and I look forward to seeing the 2 of them pair up again in the future.

I have to admit, I struggled to read this trilogy. There were way too many random plots thrown in that were absolutely pointless and DUST left me with so many unanswered questions. What happened to the other silos? are they going to try and rescue them? What is with the door at the end that they were trying to open? What was that door for? I just feel like the entire trilogy dragged on and didn't keep me captivated until the end of DUST to which I didn't know what was happening.

What was most disappointing about R.J. Larson’s story?

The narrator.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Brooke Heldman?

Rebecca Soler

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

Confusion. I didn't know what was going on because the narrator made everyone's voice so whiny and annoying.

Any additional comments?

I couldn't even concentrate on the book because I couldn't get past the narrator making everyone's voice sound so whiny. The first thing I thought was "What the heck is that?" I couldn't get past Chapter 2.

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator was HORRIBLE! I don't think I could say it enough. The reader read everything completely wrong even when it said differently in the book. She would read a confrontation calmly when the book stated ".....blah blah blah, they argued." The book says that she becomes a strong woman and the narrator makes her sound like a weak little girl who has no clue what she is doing and is terrified like a 4 year old. When she is being interrogated, the narrator makes it sound like she is pleading by saying I'm sorry like a little girl when the book has her being strong and confident. This chick should never narrate a book again in her life.

Would you listen to Prized again? Why?

I would definitely listen to Prized again because it was a great story with a great plot. I would probably read it because the narrator was HORRIBLE!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

NEVER LET THE NARRATOR READ A BOOK AGAIN! SHE IS HORRIBLE!
