Another great dystopian series!

What made the experience of listening to The Testing the most enjoyable?

This was a very engaging story and I can't wait to read the rest in the series. There were some similarities between this and the Hunger Games, but the story stands on its own. Some of the twists I didn't see coming and the characters were interesting. The narrator was good and didn't detract from the story.


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

I haven't listened to her before. She is one of the better narrators. My only complaint is that she pronounces the "o" in opossum. Most people just day "possum". It was a little jarring every time she did it.

Excellent!!

A very engaging story. Well written and well read. It is reminiscent of the Hunger Games series and the Divergent series in theme and tone but stands very well on its own. The characters are well developed. I highly recommend this book. I will definitely purchase the next in the series.
