Publisher's Summary

Treena is nervous for Rating Day. A single number will brand her forever - a valuable citizen, or a pathetic waste of space. Her top-Rated boyfriend is confident their scores will coincide so they can attend the academy together. But when the big day arrives, her true number shocks everyone.
To get her life and boyfriend back, she must go undercover and expose a military spy. Doesn't sound too hard, except that someone wants her dead. And then there's Vance, the mysterious soldier with a haunted past and beautiful brown eyes. Together, they discover a dark numbers conspiracy, one that shatters the nation's future. Treena must join up with Vance if she is to survive the dangerous game of numbers - and the terrible war that rages within her heart.

Divergent meets Hunger Games. Future Dystopia.

This book follows the current popular theme: Future dystopian world, totalitarian government, female main character, male crush...
There were a lot of parallels to Divergent with a hint of Hunger Games or the Matched series.
I thought that the whole book was very well written, thrilling, and all-around hard to put down. Definitely a winner that will hopefully follow in the footsteps of some of the more popular titles in this genre.

The book opens with Treena, the main character, preparing for her rating day. In this futuristic world, citizens receive ratings based on grades, how useful they are to society, and how well they adhere to strict social rules. Treena is expected by her peers to receive a top rating, allowing her to go on and do great things in the government and society. When the ceremony ends in her receiving the lowest rating in her class, and one of the lowest ratings that society can give, she is both devastated and confused. How could her rating have been so low? When she is offered a chance at reconsideration if she undertakes a mission that immerses her into a world of danger, she begins to discover things she never knew about the society she has spent her entire life trying to live up to. Why has their government really been suppressing and imprisoning those living in small villages on the outskirts of their society? Why did she really receive such a low rating? Was she part of some greater plot by her government?

In the very beginning (the first hour or so) I wasn't that impressed. However, as the story continued, I found my self more and more drawn in by the characters.

Narration was very well done as well. The narrator was perfect for the main character.

If you liked Divergent, Hunger Games, Matched, or some of the other similar books in this genre, then you will like Numbers Game.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.

Hunger Games and Divergent Merge!

Would you listen to Numbers Game again? Why?

This is the type of book I will listen to more than once and still enjoy. The book is "clean" without obscenities and sex scenes. While similar to Hunger Games or Divergent, Numbers Game holds its own with a story line that kept me listening without getting bored.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Numbers Game?

When Trina meets her father.


Have you listened to any of Stacey Glemboski’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not listened to any other of Stacey Glemboski's other performances, but I did like her work and would listen to others.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I think the part that really moved me was when Trina gets her number and the feelings she went through.


Any additional comments?

I've listened to hundreds of books, and read thousands more. At the age of 54, I tend to like the YA books because they are usually more creative. Unfortunately, many are starting to use excessive profanity and obscenities, along with sex scenes that put me off. This book was refreshingly clear of those things and, therefore so much more enjoyable.
