Where does The Scourge rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I have listened to so many wonderful books like Hunger Games, Divergent, enclave, Legend, Shatter me, Unwind... that I hate to say that this book is in the middle because it is a great book but compared to ones listed above, it is below those.
Any additional comments?
This book really puts you in the shoes of a blind person. It was whole new way of telling a story that was unique to this series. She had to describe scenes and people by other means other than sight so I really felt like I was "blind" while listening to it but in a good way. It is a dystopian setting with the protagonist being a strong, young female. The book is written well and the performer does a great job. It is not gory and there is no cursing. However, the second book of this series does have a rapist that attempts to rape her and he eventually is painted as a good guy who was just being "silly" when he was attempting to rape her. She continues to hang out with her almost rapist and when other males try to protect her from him, she always scolds them and tells them to stop fighting as if she were talking to squabbling children. I am not sure that is a good message to be sending to young girls. That takes place in book 2 so that is something you should be aware of before you read book 1.

I was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.
I really enjoyed this book. I liked the original storylines and the characters were very interesting. look forward to hearing more.
Would you consider the audio edition of The Scourge to be better than the print version?
Never read the written version.... but the narator made it amazing, especially Perris corrector.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Perri - I loved his thoughtfulness, kindness, humor and I guess I just liked him! <br/><br/>Fenn - I really relate to fenn, with here 'sightlessness' I understand some of the struggles she goes through on a much deeper level.
What about Emily Zeller’s performance did you like?
Her tones of voice, she really bought the characters to life
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Yes I cried a lot! <br/>there was one point in the middle of the night when I was reading that I burst into tear because I thought Perri was going to die. <br/><br/>the Fleshies are pretty scary too..... espeshally in a dark room, alone.... i did have to turn around quite a few times and slow my breathing quite a few times too....
