Great dystopian novel; great narrator.
Emma Galvin was an absolutely fantastic narrator. The book was also amazing. It was definitely perfect to read right after The Hunger Games trilogy. Although the story of The Hunger Games is much better, I believe that the book was better written. It was was a very fun read. (And if you're confused about my review, I reserve 5 stars for great classics and other well-written contemporary novels).
Great book, great narrating
I love this version. Emma Galvin's voice makes the book come alive like a movie. I've listened to some audiobooks that was painful to listen to. Her tone and voice is exactly how I would read it. Amazing.
