Date: February 2011

Duration: 11 hours 49 minutes


Ninety-five days, and then I'll be safe. I wonder whether the procedure will hurt. I want to get it over with. It's hard to be patient. It's hard not to be afraid while I'm still uncured, though so far the deliria hasn't touched me yet. Still, I worry. They say that in the old days, love drove people to madness. The deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don't.

Lauren Oliver astonished readers with her stunning debut, Before I Fall. In a starred review, Publishers Weekly called it "raw, emotional, and, at times, beautiful. An end as brave as it is heartbreaking." Her much-awaited second novel fulfills her promise as an exceptionally talented and versatile writer.

Also included is a sneak listen to the first chapter of the next book in the series. Enjoy!

    The narrators voice for alex is just about the most annoying thing I've ever heard and her voice for Hannah coming in a close second

    The premise of the book is kinda corny, but the characters make up for it. After I got past the ridiculous idea of the storyline, and just how completely insane and unbelievable the government is, I really liked it. Kinda a mixture of The Hunger Games and The Host, just all the aliens are really evil instead of kind. I love books where the little people rise up to fight against a stronger force, so I was bound to enjoy this. Not much actually happened in the first 7/8ths of the book, but it still kept my interest, that really says something for quality of writing! The narrator did great. I am looking forward to see what happens next

  • Nicole Perras

    Terrible narration. Plot is predictable. But it was the narration that really turned me off

    I am seriously so glad I choose this audiobook! It's well written. It seems kinda corny, but it's the really good kind of corny. It's a gut wrenching, heart stopping, post apocalyptic vibe romance story. I seriously could not get enough of this book! My only regret is not knowing other people who have read/listened so that we could talk about it!! The girl who reads the book does a really good job making voice differentiations, even for the male roles. Something about how she does the main male, totally makes me think of Evan Peters. Let's face it, any book where the mental image of the male is Evan Peters is going to capture any modern females attention! *drools*

    At first I wasn't sure about the story, sounding like a typical YA scenario, but as I kept listening I was dazzled from the story telling and the story itself. This is a beautiful novel that I couldn't put down and the narrator was too perfect in conveying the characters. 5 stars!!!

    It was a good "read"! I enjoyed it very much, the narrator did a fabulous job!

  • Christine Shaffer

    Loved the way the narrator did a great job getting the characters' personalities with her voice. The book was very good and I have been waiting to find one I liked this much since I first read Twilight wayyy back in 2008.

    good storyline but kind of mind numbingly slow at times. But a good read and original, The narrarator was amazing . One thing that is a vital part of listening to a book as apposed to reading one urself, is to hear the characters emotions, its what brings them and their world/story to life its what fuels the reader and makes us feel everyrhing they feel and she nailed it. I would reccomend this book on that alone
