Publisher's Summary

When Finn, a 16-year-old Enforcer-In-Training, learns that The Wall built to keep citizens safe from The Wild is really a cage, he starts questioning all he's been taught. Maybe animals aren't as dangerous as he's been conditioned to believe. Maybe his rebel parents aren't the bad guys. Maybe he's playing for the wrong team. Finn must choose a side; either way it will cost him. His family, or his future...but neither are as terrifying as what may lurk beyond The Wall.

Divergent meets Avatar meets 1984.

Would you consider the audio edition of Finding Axiom to be better than the print version?

Audio is always better. The audio version important for this book because the narrator, Zachary Johnson, embodies the character of Finn. He also does an excellent job with the other characters--most memorably his mother and sister and of course the dog.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Finding Axiom?

Spoiler alert: The book totally changes when Finn realizes that the dog can communicate telepathically. The entire section where he is discovering this is very well-written.

Which scene was your favorite?

The whole book is filled with great scenes, but my favorite is when Finn is in the recovery room trying to explain to the cute nurse that she is the reason for his high blood pressure. The scene where he sneaks into the office and finds out that his family is on the watch list and his girlfriend's parents are in a work-camp is also intense.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The Adviser is Watching you. Can your Dog Save You?

Any additional comments?

If you liked the book, "Divergent," or the movie, "Avatar," you will probably enjoy this book. This is a clean, family friendly book. I received this book free in exchange for a fair review.

Dystopian World

Where animals are shunned and a patriarch demands extreme loyalty and obedience. Can Finn, an enforcer in training, come to understand his place in a world where animals and man work together? A choice must be made and soon. Should Finn continue on the enforcer path or should he forsake his place as determined by the chairman and instead become an agitator?

This is a good listen for tweens and teenagers. It's about the things we lay aside as we grow up. It's also about the decisions that go into deciding where our place is ultimately destined to be. Finn makes the right choice although it is an extremely painful one and has far reaching effects on both him and his family. The question is can Finn live with his decision and see his path through to the end?

I enjoy narrations by Zachary Johnson which is why I asked to listen to this audiobook. I find his narration style varied and compelling. I did listen on 1.5 speed.

I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom! in exchange for an honest review.
