    I'm in love with these books! I knew I had to hear the audio version especially since I really want this to become a movie series. Hearing the voices for the characters just makes it that much more real to me!

    Another great post apocalyptic novel. I fell in love with Day five minutes into this book and Marie Lu's character development is a notch above all her competitors .

    Great book, but more action would be great. The story also has a very nice flow and interest the reader.
