Publisher's Summary

The selection began with 35 girls. Now, with the group narrowed down to the Elite, the competition to win Prince Maxon's love is fiercer than ever. The closer America gets to the crown, the more she struggles to figure out where her heart truly lies. Each moment she spends with Maxon is like a fairy tale, filled with breathless, glittering romance. But whenever she sees her first love, Aspen, standing guard, she's swept up in longing for the life they'd planned to share.

America is desperate for more time. But while she's torn between her two futures, the rest of the Elite know exactly what they want - and America's chance to choose is about to slip away.

    Story
    "Lots of Turmoil, Maturity Issues"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, but only if they read the 1st book in the series. It was a well written book but not as lighthearted as the Selection.
    Many reviews I read complained about how much they really disliked America and that she is wishy washy but nobody in reality has ever been in her position. Extremely poor growing up, falls in love and rejected even though she was willing to be even poorer; then live like a princess and she is only 17. Even though she has fallen in love, the terror of her decision and how it will affect her and her family is out of this world. It's still another non-stop read that I just couldn't put down.


    What other book might you compare The Elite to and why?

    Honestly I can't compare this book. It's still a contunation of the selection preocess with lots of politics, and the palace under attack constantly


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was actually at the ending when they were the most honest and she discovers how much he truely loves her.


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

    Honesty prevails but secrets abound


    Any additional comments?

    America is dealing with her growing love for Maxon and what she wants. She's reserved about becoming a princess, but wants Maxon. Aspen keeps pushing her to choose him and she knows he's a safe bet. But reality is she is 17 years old and if she chooses Maxon she inherits a great responibility when she becomes a princess and then the queen. If she chooses Apsen she knows where she will be a "2" in the caste system. But reality is she doesn't think like a "2 or 3" she thinks like a "5 or 6" and is feeling inferor. The Selection process has changed her more than she realizes until the end. She is finally going through the stage in life where she is uncertain of her feelings and experienceing jelousy for the first time. Must be very hard to want someone who is dating 6 people at the same time.

    "Kept my heart racing!"

    I'm glad I stuck with this series, even knowing who she ends up with due to the later books. It still kept my heart racing and myself guessing at how they ended up together. I've also never wanted to throttle a main character for her idiocy so much, and wondered how she could flip-flop so much in her emotions, but that is what kept me guessing. This book had a particularly sad scene in it that really creates the later internal conflict. Very nicely done.

    "Enjoyed"

    Good romance, developed characters, light easy read. Enjoyed listening but got bored by 4th book. Since I read and listen to a number of books in a variety of genre, multiple sequels can drive me nuts. I'm better off waiting until all the books are done and then read them. The 1st books have to be extremely memorable, interesting and stand alone stories within a series. Example: 14 and Folds, I hate going back after 3 similar books and thinking now where was I? what was this about? wait what happened & who was this character? usually then I think forget it I'm out of the mood for this series.

    "Powerful"

    Just as a heads up, if you haven't read or listened to The Selection first, that certainly needs to be done before checking out The Elite. It continues to be a wonderful series. We see a heroine who is brave and strong but not perfect. This book helps everything continue to fall into place.
    I'd completely forgotten about the major scene with Marlee until listening to this book. In that scene you find out just about everything you need to know about the character of pretty much everyone and the drive/control involved, and it's emphasized greatly throughout the book. Be prepared for some surprises - of course there's the expected love triangle and issues with rebellion, but in this book we get to find out that it's so much deeper than that, and that the characters are so much less fickle than they at first appear. The story and narration are, yet again, phenomenal. I'm looking forward to reading/listening to The One yet again.
