Told mostly in flashback and set against a chilling fascist backdrop, Dissident is a rollercoaster ride of political intrigue, passionate contemporary romance, and undying love.
For listeners 18+. Ends on a cliffhanger.
I didn't like any of the characters. They were so phoney and boring. The sexual scenes were narrated badly and the writing seemed childish.
I have to say that I didn't particularly care for the heavy politics in this book, however, I did enjoy the story especially with the situation the US is dealing with right now so it was sort of relevant.
I really enjoyed the storyline as well as the narrator. Will definitely be looking for more from both of them.
Would you try another book from Cecilia London and/or Chloe Cole?
From Cecilia London, definitely. From Chloe Cole, NEVER.
How could the performance have been better?
Change the narrator.
What character would you cut from Dissident?
None. They're all amazing.
Any additional comments?
Awesome book, ridiculous narrator. What this narrator think, that we're retarded? Why does she talk in this rhythm, soooo sloooowwlly as if each word were apearing one at a time for her to read? Has she ever heard about emotion? Geeez! It's such a disservice to such an amazing and emotional book. Makes me mad.
