Would you consider the audio edition of Specials to be better than the print version?
Before I bought the audiobook I read the whole series back when they were first published. I seem to recall throwing the book a few times in moments of frustration--can't do that to an audiobook. Unfair question though as I almost always prefer audiobooks to their printed siblings.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Fausto! I've always had a soft spot for Fausto even though he was never anything more then a main-minor character. I think that he "got it" more then most. He seemed to always be on the up and up even though nobody directly included him. I loved his awareness, determination, and independence.
Have you listened to any of Emily Tremaine’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I've listened to her read the other books in the series. The reading is consistant from one book to the next if a little disconnected and flat.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I found myself becoming frustrated with the characters sometimes as they just 'didn't get it' yet. I also found myself worried for them.

The main character's motivations by the final novel make no sense. She doesn't ever grow or evolve her thinking. Spends each book just wanting things to be the same even after each major change. Stay ugly, now stay pretty, now stay special. Stubborn and complacent. Easily casts away old relationships in favor of new ones. Overall frustrating lead to follow.

It's hard to write a series and make all the books equally good but some how Westerfeld has done it!
Like with the other books in the series it took me 3 or 4 chapters to get in to, but after he got going I was hooked!
This book was my first experience with Audible, and I loved it! The one downside was I felt the narrator sounded a bit like Siri, but again after a few chapters I got over that.
A great book/series for older teens, especially if you loved Hunger Games.
If you're looking for similar titles, I'd recommend, The Hunger Games, Gone by Michael Grant (I think that's the author's name), The Maze Runner books (forgotten the author!) and Divergent by Veronica Roth (I found the main character frustrating, but I couldn't put the books down!)
A great book!
