Publisher's Summary

This program also contains seven bonus radio transmissions from Pittacus Lore!

Until the day I met John Smith, Number Four, I'd been on the run alone, hiding and fighting to stay alive.

Together, we are much more powerful. But it could only last so long before we had to separate to find the others....

I went to Spain to find Seven, and I found even more, including a tenth member of the Garde who escaped from Lorien alive. Ella is younger than the rest of us, but just as brave. Now we're looking for the others - including John.

But so are they.

They caught Number One in Malaysia.

Number Two in England.

And Number Three in Kenya.

They caught me in New York - but I escaped.

I am Number Six.

They want to finish what they started.

But they'll have to fight us first.

    Story
    "It's all about the killing"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who is okay with (nearly) all the minor characters being killed off.


    What could Pittacus Lore have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Followed a path in which all/most of the minor characters don't die. Every scene in which someone might die, it was easy to say, "Well, guess it will be whoever isn't part of the guard." It made it feel like the first few books were all about getting the guard together while also killing off all the cepans.


    Did the narrators do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, voice changes made it very easy to know which character was speaking.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It had its bright moments, for sure, and the overall idea is a good one, but individual scene execution and some piece of plot just don't fit. They break away from the rules of the established story-universe.


    Any additional comments?

    And what's up with the story title? In which way does nine "rise"? The more I read in the series, the more I thought, "That doesn't really make sense. So, did the authors just choose it because it sounds cool, regardless of how it fit within the story?"

    Story
    "Disappointing beginning better ending"
    Would you try another book from Pittacus Lore and/or the narrators?

    yes


    What was most disappointing about Pittacus Lore’s story?

    The story itself seemed lost until the end. The characters were either whining or too full of bravado to be sympathetic. It pulled itself together in the end


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Performance was good...the different voices the narrators use for the different characters keeps you in the story and able to follow along.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    yes

    Story
    "Entertaining"
    If you could sum up The Rise of Nine in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining, interesting, engaging


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    my favorite character was Ella. Even though she is just being introduced I found her character interesting and wanted to follow her growth.


    Any additional comments?

    I did enjoy this book but the characters sometimes took a long time to recognize the obvious. Even allowing for the age of the characters it sometimes seemed ridiculous that they did not see things in front of them.

    "Narrator's voice is unbearable."
    Would you try another book from Pittacus Lore and/or the narrators?

    I love the series, but every time I buy the audio the narrator's voice is annoying and unbearable. I have had to go out and buy the books instead. I would only buy another Pittacus Lore book if they changed the narrators.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Haven't finished it. Have to buy the books instead.


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The Power of Six also had awful narrating. The female voice was fine at times, but the male voice was unbearable.

    I am dyslexic! If it wasn't audible I would not even be able to know what's in a book. I found out I love books.

    If you could sum up The Rise of Nine in three words, what would they be?

    Kept me going


    What other book might you compare The Rise of Nine to and why?

    This was an interesting read. I didn't really want to stop listening to it. It has to have an ending. What's going to happen to these kids? And there still one kid missing. So there must be another book in the making. Until then, I have no chose but to keep waiting.
