Great concept that really makes you think. Would I want to know? It’s a great read. And it faces you with a curiosity ( curiosity killed the cat but satisfaction brought it back) would I do it? Yes I would.
Let’s face it 99% of us would want to know our soul mate...

I’m not really sure what I think of this story. I really liked it..but I didn’t quite understand it.
Positives .... narration fantastic .... melancholy yet sweet. .... I was invited to really like the characters and I did
Negatives ... overlooking the fact that it’s sci fi .. it was a little over the top ... a bit of a cringe with some particular parts ( such as she appeared as a clown 😬) the story quite corny especially the ending
It was ok

Boring

I cannot give a full review because I have not finished this audio book. I could not finish this book..actually I only got up to chapter 7 (painfully) because I could not tolerate the narrator!!!!
Over acted and cringe worthy and irritating. The American accents are horrible!

There was a few hours of story and the rest was recollections of the past books.
I had to finish the series and although I liked the concept of the story and the history etc, the series seemed immature like a book written for teenagers.
I was very disappointed.

Would you try another book written by Rick Yancey or narrated by Phoebe Strole and Brandon Espinoza ?

Yes...0nly if it was aimed at a more mature audience. I thought the two narrators did a great job

What will your next listen be?

Something that is not so schmaltzy..and more grown up

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

Although the narrators were obviously young ...they were very natural there were no 'stupid' voices and I enjoyed their performance...I'm thinking if they were not so good I wouldnt have finished the book!

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The 5th Wave?

oh that doesn't count cos this book is aimed at a much younger audience

Any additional comments?

This book reminded me of a mix of The Twilight Saga and the Hunger Games...totally different genres but had a certain similarity
