In the violent country of Ludania, the language you speak determines what class you are, and there are harsh punishments if you forget your place - looking a member of a higher class in the eye can result in immediate execution.
Seventeen-year-old Charlaina (Charlie for short) can understand all languages, a dangerous ability she's been hiding her whole life. Her only place of release is the drug-filled underground club scene, where people go to shake off the oppressive rules of the world they live in. There, she meets a beautiful and mysterious boy who speaks a language she's never heard, and her secret is almost exposed. Through a series of violent upheavals, it becomes clear that Charlie herself is the key to forcing out the oppressive power structure of her kingdom.

A Good Dystopian Read
The authors large vocabulary.
The Selection. Mostly because of its plot. It takes place in a kingdom that has a caste system.
I liked every scene that involved the baby sister. The author and reader made the little girl seem cute and adoring.
Not at first, but eventually yes.
I was reluctant to buy this audio book because its seemed kind of far out. It actually wasn't. It was very enjoyable after the first 30 minutes. The first half hour was confusing and boring. I had to re listen to it about 5 times just to understand what was going on. After the rough start, the book blossomed into a wonderful book.
