Publisher's Summary

Nine of us came here. We look like you. We talk like you. We live among you. But we are not you. We can do things you dream of doing. We have powers you dream of having. We are stronger and faster than anything you have ever seen. We are the superheroes you worship in movies and comic books but we are real.

Our plan was to grow, and train, and become strong, and become one, and fight them. But they found us and started hunting us first. Now all of us are running. Spending our lives in shadows, in places where no one would look, blending in. we have lived among you without you knowing.

But they know.

They caught Number One in Malaysia.Number Two in England.And Number Three in Kenya.They killed them all.

I am Number Four.

I am next.

Also included is a sneak listen to the first chapter of the next book in the series. Enjoy!

Enjoyed the Story

I really enjoyed the book. I saw the movie a few years ago so it was a lot of fun to revisit it and get all the extra details that the book has. My only complaint was that the narrator doesn't sound young. He sounds like an older man. Also his choice for some of the characters voices were a little odd. After a while I got used to it though and it didn't really effect the experience too much.

FANTASTIC - OUT OF THIS WORLD!!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES!

Any additional comments?

If you enjoyed the Hunger Games, Ender’s Game or are a fan of super heroes, I highly recommend this series. If you take interest in dystopian worlds, aliens, or YA novels, you should give this series a chance. Superheroes. Aliens. Teamwork. Coming of Age. Action. Page Turner.

Horrible narrating.

Good story, but almost ruined by the narrator. I'm an audible regular and I've never come across a narrator this bad. The two main characters are fine, but then the voices he used for the other supporting characters are ridiculous. Any female voice is a strange whining and quickly overshadows their character. And do not fit the action scenes where he uses the pathetic pouting voice for strong characters. Not to mention the football player who has deep "dopey" voice. So far over done, I'm sorry to say I had to struggle to get through it.

The movie was better than the book.

While the book was entertaining, it was fairly simple and really seemed geared more for newer readers to the genre. I think the movie was much better in how succinct and direct it was. The book had a penchant for wandering off into emotional stuff that really didn't add to the story. The world building and rules were also hard to believe at times. I probably won't get the rest of the series and instead stick with something more well rounded.

Great voice's

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

Fun adventure, finished it in days

I had put this one off for awhile because of others' reviews and not being too keen on the sample. I'm glad I finally took a chance on it because I really enjoyed it. The performance was engaging and the story was imaginative. I will be listening to the rest of the books of this series.

I'm in my 30s and also liked Hunger Games, Harry Potter, etc.

Great story line

Fun story, not hard to follow and age appropriate for youth readers. Minor profanity. I wouldn't recommend for anyone under 12.

Book great ,Movie not so.

Nice to know there are some nice aliens, instead of just the ones bent on the destruction of earth. Don't panic those are there too.
main theme hope and courage with a generous sprinkling of love and honor. Above all lots of action.
