This didn’t impress me as much as the others in the series. The book deals with the physiological impact the teenagers are going through as a result of the war. The action scenes are still heavy and fast paced but it’s all starting to sound the same. Not a lot of progress is being made. It is emotional in parts, when we learn a little more of family and friends held at the showgrounds.

Overall I think the series is brilliant and I’ve come too really like the characters. In particular Ellie, I think she is one of the bravest girls I have read, but she isn’t perfect and that’s what I like about her. I just felt this was the weakest one so far.

Mish They are really good up to this point as you read more of Ellie’s thought and how this is affecting her. I like it

I’m just worried that the action scenes are going to sound repetitive and bore me. We’ll see :)

I’m listening to book 5 and I think I prefer them on audio. The narrator has a great voice as Ellie.

I know you like Audio books so it’s something to consider if you decide to continue the series
