  • "Wonderful!"

    Overall

    Please take time and a credit to listen to the first part of this very emotional and thought provoking, wonderful and intelligent work of fiction. I suspect some people will say it is like The Hunger Games or Divergent, well although they are all based in a post apocalyptic America and are put in the young adult range of literature, they are all very, very different and I give credit where it is due and The Darkest Minds is well up to standard with these other great titles and defiantly has its own unique agenda. I am a 34 year old woman and I read or listen to many books of various classifications, this is not just a book for teenagers in my opinion, it is a book for all and not only that it leaves you begging for more. In fact I liked it so much that I ordered the hardback version of book two as it is not available on audio yet, and I just can not wait to see what happens...guess I am a bit of a teenager after all!! x

    When Ruby woke up on her 10th birthday, something about her had changed. Something frightening enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that got her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government "rehabilitation camp." She might have survived the mysterious disease that had killed most of America's children, but she and the others emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they could not control.

    When Darby meets Torin as a fellow counselor at the survival camp she impulsively applies to, she's certain his main goal is to turn her world upside down, with his disheveled curly hair, irresistible dimples, and endearingly quirky habit of reciting quotes from classic movies and ancient thinkers. Darby's not sure she can adapt to Torin's way of viewing his past and the tragedies he's faced. Because she's had her own share of heartache too, and as much as she wants to believe that it's all been for a purpose, she hasn't been able to move on.
