Description

The selection began with 35 girls. Now, with the group narrowed down to the Elite, the competition to win Prince Maxon's love is fiercer than ever. The closer America gets to the crown, the more she struggles to figure out where her heart truly lies. Each moment she spends with Maxon is like a fairy tale, filled with breathless, glittering romance. But whenever she sees her first love, Aspen, standing guard, she's swept up in longing for the life they'd planned to share.

America is desperate for more time. But while she's torn between her two futures, the rest of the Elite know exactly what they want - and America's chance to choose is about to slip away.

It was okay!

The elite was an okay book. The story seems to be progressing at a very slow rate and not much seemed to happen.
America’s character grew increasingly whinny and problematic with her never ending love triangle and I got whiplash with how quick she jumped back and fourth.
The performance was well done and remained clear when listening e at X2 + speed which is something I appreciate.

Not sure what the point of book 2 was?

I mean I liked that it went into some of the backstory that book 1 didn’t, but I was quite disappointed that little to nothing happened.
Makes me wonder if #3 will be as equally frustrating.

It's alright

Things kinda lost a little bit of luster since the first book somehow
The story has potential, but the writing & messages have fallen short. However the narrators performance is wonderful

overkill and just annoying

such a struggle to finish. it was literally 7 hours that could have been completed in 1 hour. America cried non stop, whined every few minutes, and just back and forth playing both guys. Hypocritical, rude and mean to say the least of her character in this book. How can the Prince still want someone so cold and whiny the entire time without giving any indication that's she's still fun, warm and easy going?!

I confess -- I really like this series!

STORY - My husband and friends would probably tease me for listening to this book. The characters are teenaged girls, and the story is a combination of the TV show The Bachelor and the Cinderella fairy tale -- girls competing for a prince. It's chick lit all the way!

In this second book, The Selection has now become "The Elite," with only six competitors left from the larger original number. There are rivalries between the girls, as you might imagine. The main character, America, is not sure she's over the relationship with her old BF, who is now a guard at the palace where the competition is taking place. So there's a love triangle going on during the competition, plus the kingdom is experiencing political unrest and is under attack.

It may be teenaged chick lit, but there's a lot that's going on in the story that I find totally enjoyable. It's a light, easy listen, with lots of young, innocent romance thrown in. I might be stupid at my age for enjoying this series, but I do. I can't wait for the third and final book to come out to see how everything ends up. (These books must be listened to in order, as each one leads into the next).

NARRATION - The reader has an unusual way of reading which I can't quite describe. It sort of bothered me for maybe an hour into the first book, but after that I thought she was perfect for the rest of that book and this one as well.

OVERALL - For females about 15 and up. There's no inapproprite language or situations. It might be too immature for some listeners, but not this one.

This fan girl enjoyed it...love triangles and all!

Just wow! Again, I can't believe how much I enjoyed this book. Like the Selection there were so many bad reviews that I almost didn't get this book. So glad I didn't listen to the haters. This book was amazing. There were so many twists and turns and I enjoyed learning more about the world that Kiera Cass has created.

I can sympathize with those who hated the love triangle. It's frustrating, but isn't that what a love triangle is suppose to do? Otherwise who cares about it?? This is suppose to be about a young girl who is confused and has a huge decision to make under a stressful situation. I really felt sympathy for her character. And I can totally understand how confused she must be over Maxon and Aspen.

I don't get the negative reviews, but everyone is entitled to their opinion. If you enjoyed the Selection then I'm sure you will enjoy this one too. Just don't expect everything to be wrapped up and given to you with a bow on top. This is a trilogy and there is still more to come. This 2nd installment definitely left me wanting more and anticipating the final installment.

I enjoyed the narrator and the cover art is simply breathtaking.

Can't wait for the next book.

Annoying

Over all irritating. I’m only half way through and I’m tired of the back and forth and talking in circles and lack of any progression in the story. I’m ready for everyone to move on to the next stage of the story because it has great potential. It’s just like the author was trying to drag out the book and have more to say but it just gets repetitive and frustrating. I’ll probably finish it anyways because it’s a cool idea but I wish it was executed better. I enjoyed the first book. this one... eh.

America's indecisiveness is starting to annoy me

Story wise, I seem to prefer The Selection more, the characters just seems to grow more and more indecisive by the chapter, especially America.
*HUGE SPOILER ALERT*
I don't understand why she keep going back to Aspen when she had already made a decision with herself that she is in love with Maxon. It doesn't help either that Maxson can't seem to make up his mind either even though he said very early on that the whole competition will be over once America decided that she wants him, yet the first thing he did was go off and date other women.
*END OF SPOILER*
However, despite all that, I did enjoy the revelation of the bigger underlying plots of the story hinting about the motives of the rebels and Maxon's family.
It was all so gripping that I had finished the whole book in one sitting and will be continuing onto the next book, The One. I just hope all these love triangles, squares, pentagon, or whatever it was will go away soon, but I guess it's to be expected given the plot of the story, 35 girls and 1 prince.

Disappointing

The voice sounds robotic and emotionless. It honestly ruins the mood and feel of the book

Why do I keep reading this?

This book keeps making me angry that the stupid 17 yr old keeps making horrible decisions. And even worse, keeps getting away with them. Any boy, much less a prince should have given up on her long ago. I think the writer is so shallow and story line so weak. So Why then have I not given up? Maybe it's my dogged tonicity to persevere in the face of mediocrity, or my undying hope that there is a deeper story waiting to unveil itself. Perhaps it's because I bought book 3 by mistake first and so I wanted to see the first 2 books through to get my money's worth. I hope book 3 doesn't disappoint, or that will be the end. Happily ever after or not.

A Surprise Around Every Turn

Normally I can easily predict the twists and turns of a book, especially a young adult novel, but with the Elite I was put n a roller coaster of twists and turns that I never saw coming. The evolution of characters was so amazing! I know you may think a series that is basically an elongated love triangle could not possibly have any large twists beyond the main character picking one person over the other. But Kiera Cass certainly did so and more. Not only that but the maturity in the storyline gave the plot so much more of an edge. I can not wait for the next installment of the Selection series and I look forward to other series from Kiera Cass.

Very disappointing

I really struggled to finish this book. The protagonist was so ambivalent in virtually every aspect of her character and constantly whining about her situation. She was supposed to be 17 but her emotional maturity came across as a 12 year old.

America how could you?!

I cant. I CAN’T! If I never read another book with a love triangle it will be too soon. I loved the first book in this series. It was a fun lighthearted distopian which is not easy to do, and I really enjoyed it. This book... this book frustrated me more then any book has in a long, long time. Pretty much no story line but the ridiculous love triangle that goes nowhere by the way if anything it only gets more complicated.

America made every single bad decisoin she could think of and we endend this book exactly where we started.

Sure there are still some fun aspects of this book that made the first one so great, and yes, I will be reading/listening to the last one, but The Elite fell so short of my expectations I can hardly believe it.

If you can’t help but find out what happens next then listen to this one at your own risk. Maybe after this warning you will be able to enjoy it more. Good luck.

vapid and creepy

Incredibly vapid with an extremely thin plot, and that's coming from somebody that loves YA, including the Twilight series. Told by an uncomfortably sexy-whispery voice given that this is a book for young adults.

*shiver*
