Publisher's Summary

For 35 girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime: the opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth... to be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels... to live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her, leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want, and living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself - and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

    "Wow, Unexpected Delightful Book"
    What did you love best about The Selection?

    This book is not about sex. Its innocence is captivating and enjoyable. I loved America and Maxon. I really liked Maxon the most although I really couldn't figure him out. The intial meeting with him and America was funny and honest. I loved that he was wanting a true friend. He found that with America that changed over time into love. Neither say they do but their relationship is fire with love for the people and honesty to each other.


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

    Best comparasion was what was in all the other review catching fire and the bachelor all in one.


    Which character – as performed by Amy Rubinate – was your favorite?

    I loved all the characters that Amy Performed. At first it was stiff but as the pleasure of the story emerged the way Amy spoke was fantastic.


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

    Omg I orginally got this book because of the reviews and it was on sale, and I was listening to a Tom Clancy book again and just wanted something alot more light hearted.Within 5 minutes I was hooked and I listened to it in its entirety straight through, at work, my car and only pausing when I had to absolutely put it down. I loved the world, storyline, everything.


    Any additional comments?

    With just an hour left of he book and it was about 8pm at night I purchased the rest of the series immediately. This was an awesome read and I'll definately be listening to more of Mrs. Cass's writings.

    "slow start but pretty good finish"

    Not going to lie... I truly almost gave up on this book. it was very hard to get into, I almost hit return. but I'm glad I didn't. I bought this whole series before actually listening just because it was on sale. but after finishing this one I am definitely hooked it just took a while to get there. so if you aren't quite sure about this 9ne.. just hold out a little bit longer.. it may grab your attention at the least expected moment. I finished this book in less than 24 hours and glad I kept on

    "age & gender specific"

    Male or over 17? Probably not your cup of tea. Young teen? Like fairy tales? Enjoy young sweet voices? You probably like it.

    "Starts off slow, but it hooks you!"

    Good book, once I really got into it I enjoyed the story. I leaves a lot of unanswered questions and of course you have to buy the second book, which is why this isn't a five star review. Could've been longer, but a good story.

    "one of my favourites!"

    I have listened to this book many many times and still love it! I have read the hardcopy and couldn't put it down until I finished it. If you love a love story and are not bothered by a love triangle than you will like this! It is a mix of what is presumed to be the future after WW3 but also in a way the old with kings and Queen's but the casts have something of the hunger games districts. overall I love this book and keep coming back to it for comfort.
