Partials

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Dan Wells

Narrated By: Julia Whelan

Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers

Date: February 2012

Duration: 14 hours 9 minutes

Summary:

The human race is all but extinct after a war with Partials—engineered organic beings identical to humans—has decimated the population. Reduced to only tens of thousands by RM, a weaponized virus to which only a fraction of humanity is immune, the survivors in North America have huddled together on Long Island while the Partials have mysteriously retreated. The threat of the Partials is still imminent, but, worse, no baby has been born immune to RM in more than a decade. Our time is running out.
Kira, a sixteen-year-old medic-in-training, is on the front lines of this battle, seeing RM ravage the community while mandatory pregnancy laws have pushed what's left of humanity to the brink of civil war, and she's not content to stand by and watch. But as she makes a desperate decision to save the last of her race, she will find that the survival of humans and Partials alike rests in her attempts to uncover the connections between them—connections that humanity has forgotten, or perhaps never even knew were there.
Dan Wells, acclaimed author of I Am Not a Serial Killer, takes readers on a pulsepounding journey into a world where the very concept of what it means to be human is in question—one where our humanity is both our greatest liability and our only hope for survival.

    I was looking for an audio book after reading the Legend series and The Hunger Games Series. This book did not disappoint. It is a great book that left me wanting more each time I had to put it up. I can't wait to get into the next book of the series.

    This book is a game changer. It might leave a lot unexplained but be patient and read the whole series...you won't regret it. Best book since the HG.

    Very interesting story that captured and held my attention. I was disappointed to learn that this book is just the first in a series, but I was so caught up in the story that I am eagerly awaiting the sequel.

    Very very captivating. I listened to this while sitting in my cubicle at work and I found myself listening more to the story than working!
