A Different Bit of Sci-Fi.

Where does Alone rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I would rate it about 6/10 of all books I have listened to.

What did you like best about this story?

The opening scene grabs your attention for the book, and it does a good job of providing back ground for the story.

Which scene was your favorite?

The opening scene was probably the most memorable in the book.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Hidden away because of what she could do, others want to use her powers.

Any additional comments?

This story is about mega humans. The girl is who kept inside her house and away from people all her life--Only to have her world turned upside down and find out that she is a mega human. The scenes described with Wolfe are a bit creepy.

Ok but not a page turner.

This was good but maybe I'm just not a fan of this type book. It just wasn't a thriller or page turner for me.

Interesting Start

I wasn't sure about this story, but I'm glad that I stuck with it. I didn't love it but it was enough to keep my interest. Although I was hoping for more suspense and action, I liked the ending and the possibilities for the future books. I'll probably try the next one in the series to see where the author goes with it.

Wanted to like it, but didn't

The premise is based upon the classic "fish out of water" trope, and the story had potential; but the main character is selfish and immature. This really makes it hard to like her. I could only get through half of it (so take my ratings with a handful of salt). Finally, the book could really use a copy editor.

No redemption

This book puts the reader through hell and leaves them hanging in the end. the narrator is lifeless and lends nothing to the book. will not read any more from this author

I'm really glad this is on audible!

What did you like best about this story?

I've read the girl in the box series and loved it, I'm so glad there's an audio version, it's well read too, I think Annie has got the right voice and attitude for Sienna. Can't wait for the whole series to be on audio! As well as the 'Out of the Box' sequel series.

not at all what I expected

Very good.. Not a long book but engrossing. It was a complete surprise to me and not at all what I expected. It does read more as an introduction though, not a novel. I will be reading the next in the series to see how the story enfolds.

Addictive from start to finish.

I loved every minute of this book and found it hard to put it down. The ending was well worth waiting for. I found myself drawn into this world of supernatural powers. Only wanting more at the stories end. The next book in the series is a welcoming thought. It is indeed one of the best books I've read this year and I'd widely recommend it to anyone looking for a good read.
