Publisher's Summary

In this companion story to Numbers Game, Chan Norwell comes from the perfect citizen family. His mother is chief of the city monitor force, his brother an all-star, and his sister a prodigy - which leaves little wiggle room for a nobody like Chan. He is determined to have his time in the spotlight at last. But he doesn't expect things to go so horribly wrong. Alone, dishonored, and humiliated, Chan can only see one way out.
When he meets Maizel, a brilliant redhead determined to follow in her mother's suicidal footsteps, he sees his life for what it really is. If Chan can find the courage to try one more time - if he can save Maizel - maybe there's a chance he can also save himself.

POOR CHAN!! BEING AVERAGE IS NOT A BAD THING!!

Where does Chan's Story rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It was a good novella...it really touched my heart, I hate this rating system!


What other book might you compare Chan's Story to and why?

I cant...its unique!


What about Anthony Lee’s performance did you like?

He was good, I liked him!


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did its short! lol


Any additional comments?

Chan comes from a high green family...his parents expect a lot from him, and are very hard on him. When he is rated yellow on his rating day, they disown him, and when he goes to kill himself by jumping off a well known building, he meets Maizel...and she gives him the courage to go on...he saves her, and ultimately saves himself! This rating system is horrible and I hope in book 3 they find away to end it!

A Taste of Chan

The Numbers Game written by Rebecca Rode is a dystopia/post-apocalyptic series based on a society whose lives are determined by the base number they receive upon graduation from school. This number determines if they can continue on with their education, what job they are assigned, where they live, what they wear, who they date and can marry and every other part of their lives. Chan is a despicable character in the main series so it was interesting to see the beginnings of what drove him to who he became.

Chan Norwell comes from the perfect citizen family of greens. Needless to say he is under a lot of pressure to succeed in school as well as acceptable athletics. When things do not go as planned and he meets Maizel, life and the number’s game takes on a whole new meaning.

I really enjoyed this snippet of Chan as a school age teen and really hope to be let in on more of the story that makes him who he eventually becomes in the present day Numbers Game. I also secretly hope he redeems himself in the end.

Narration is provided by Anthony Lee, a new narrator for the series. He is perfect for the character of Chan, Maizel and the other characters in this story. He does an excellent job at characterization, individual voices, and giving us insight into their emotions.

Many thanks for allowing me to read and review this wonderful addition to the Numbers Game series. I eagerly wait for the next installment.
