Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela Sellers | 1/8/2014

    " Oh me oh my! This book was so gosh darn good. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 pinkthecolour | 12/28/2013

    " I've given this 1 star simply because it creeped me out, and I consequently didn't enjoy reading it. The concept itself is thought provoking and original... but creepy. Big twist. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meghan Ely | 12/8/2013

    " This book was okay. It's not one of them where I'd jump to the chance to read again. But it was defintely an interesting read. I did like how it's something I've never read before. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rasha Drapleck | 11/5/2013

    " This book was mostly weird. It was annoying hereing the charactors perspective because he was an ansty teen ager. he was more disterbed by the fact that his parents adobted him than that they were alines. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hailey | 10/10/2013

    " this book is so good! My friend and I picked it out for our book project for L.A. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trish | 8/2/2013

    " I found this story intriguing, and I am not a fan of science fiction. If you have a son or daughter who enjoys that genre, I would certainly recommend this read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frost_light | 4/21/2013

    " It's not too bad, only a little boring because I had guessed the ending. Anyway, it expressed the world we are living now. Life is not perfect when everything's perfect. If I were Thomas, I would choose the same choice.^^ "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karie | 2/3/2013

    " Maybe I've read too many "boys with secret histories" books lately, but this one really fell flat for me--and the climax and the ending were too weak and too unbelievable in comparison to the set up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kc7nan | 1/3/2013

    " A good read on the topic of making choices and personal freedom. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt Mazenauer | 12/25/2012

    " Draws you pretty quickly into a thriller sense of a giant scifi conspiracy. Then it unravels into a completely implausible scenario. I really wanted it to be good but the ending especially made it impossible to believe, even for sci-fi. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie Golaski | 11/8/2012

    " Fun and interesting, probably written as a Y.A. novel. It's about an alien invasion, but they're friendly and attempting to save humankind from itself. The question is whether mankind wants this sort of help. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marla Sommer | 11/6/2012

    " A British version of an alien invasion. It was funny that the alien headquarters was in Santa Barbara California. I guess the author thought that was a pretty exotic location. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 8/10/2012

    " This is definitely a youth book but I still enjoyed it. The characters weren't especially memorable but it was a good thought-provoking story about personal freedom. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Martha | 12/21/2011

    " Lame. I didn't buy it. I liked Dougal, in a luke-warm sort of way, because he reminded me of a reverse Skippy Jon Jones, but the story just wasn't believable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mickey | 12/3/2011

    " The best book ever it's mysterious and adventurous!I recommend this book to every one who likes adventuring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 11/28/2011

    " It was okay. Typical dystopian novel. Literary Review is quoted as saying it "deserves to be ranked alongside Lois Lowry's The Giver" and that is only true if it is held up as an inferior book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trisha | 10/15/2011

    " this was an odd but interesting slant on this type of story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kryptique | 7/22/2011

    " Didn't really like this one. I expected more from it somehow. The whole story wrapped up very suddenly and not entirely believably, in my opinion, in a very few pages at the end. Not too realitic feeling actions/etc toward the end either. Interesting premise though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 5/21/2011

    " YA about Angels sent to Earth to save mankind from itself. Not great, but worth reading, some decent thinking points. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krista the Krazy Kataloguer | 5/20/2011

    " A story about freedom of choice in a world where a boy discovers that angels are really aliens. "
