Publisher's Summary

Eternal life is to die for....
Seventeen-year-old Zoe Vanderveen is a GAP - a genetically altered person. She lives in the security of a walled city on prime waterfront property alongside other equally beautiful people with extended life spans. Her brother, Liam, is missing.
Noah Brody is a natural who lives on the outside. He leads protests against the GAPs and detests the widening chasm they've created between those who have and those who don't. He doesn't like girls like Zoe and he has good reason not to like her specifically.
Zoe's carefree life takes a traumatic turn. She's in trouble and it turns out that Noah, the last guy on earth she should trust, is the only one who can help her.
The Perception Series books ( SF/mystery/romance) are young adult novels that take place in the not-too-distant future in a world changed by climate extremes, natural disasters, and impending wars, and where scientific breakthroughs cause class divisions - both financially and philosophically. It explores the clash between faith and science and how differences can separate us as enemies or ally us together. And in some cases, even in the midst of betrayal and personal crisis, there's room to fall in love.

Where are the other two audiobooks!!!

Would you listen to Perception again? Why?


What did you like best about this story?

It's dystopian.

Which scene was your favorite?

Every scene at the end that involved Zoe's memory loss.

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


Any additional comments?

Interesting topic, but needs more balance

The story in this book intrigued me from the summary I read here at audible, and once I listened to the book, I believe it manages to ask ethical questions that are relevant and thought provoking. Unfortunately, I found the love story a bit overwhelming and difficult to swallow. You have this character who's completely set against genetic manipulation of the human gene, but once faced with love interest who represent all of what he's expected to hate, there's no real resistance or struggle. In that sense, I felt a bit disappointed, since the book falls short from truly developing all the drama and reflection that could have created with a little more character development, and less focus on the romance and passion that in comparison to the larger picture seems to have very little impact.

This is one for the girls.

It is a good story with plenty of intrigue and excitement, but there was too many love situations that left me feeling uncomfortable. The story ends suddenly.
