I'm really glad this is on audible!

What did you like best about this story?

I've read the girl in the box series and loved it, I'm so glad there's an audio version, it's well read too, I think Annie has got the right voice and attitude for Sienna. Can't wait for the whole series to be on audio! As well as the 'Out of the Box' sequel series.

not at all what I expected

Very good.. Not a long book but engrossing. It was a complete surprise to me and not at all what I expected. It does read more as an introduction though, not a novel. I will be reading the next in the series to see how the story enfolds.

Addictive from start to finish.

I loved every minute of this book and found it hard to put it down. The ending was well worth waiting for. I found myself drawn into this world of supernatural powers. Only wanting more at the stories end. The next book in the series is a welcoming thought. It is indeed one of the best books I've read this year and I'd widely recommend it to anyone looking for a good read.

A Different Bit of Sci-Fi.

Where does Alone rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I would rate it about 6/10 of all books I have listened to.

What did you like best about this story?

The opening scene grabs your attention for the book, and it does a good job of providing back ground for the story.

Which scene was your favorite?

The opening scene was probably the most memorable in the book.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Hidden away because of what she could do, others want to use her powers.

Any additional comments?

This story is about mega humans. The girl is who kept inside her house and away from people all her life--Only to have her world turned upside down and find out that she is a mega human. The scenes described with Wolfe are a bit creepy.

Ok but not a page turner.

This was good but maybe I'm just not a fan of this type book. It just wasn't a thriller or page turner for me.

Interesting Start

I wasn't sure about this story, but I'm glad that I stuck with it. I didn't love it but it was enough to keep my interest. Although I was hoping for more suspense and action, I liked the ending and the possibilities for the future books. I'll probably try the next one in the series to see where the author goes with it.

Terrible on all levels!!

Would you try another book from Robert J. Crane and/or Annie Sullivan?

Probably not

Has Alone turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

Would you be willing to try another one of Annie Sullivan’s performances?

Absolutely positively definitely never!

What character would you cut from Alone?

? Wolf…

Any additional comments?

I almost didn't even finish this book the narration was so bad… I think that the story has a good promise but just not here.

A painful experience

Narrator sound like HAL from 2001. Story was promising but lost the plot. Characters were artificial copies from great sci-fi books. I won’t read another book by Robert J Crane.

This story captivates you from the beginning and don't let up. I can't wait to hear the rest of the storyline.

Robert J. Crane is a genius

I had already read the book, and loved the story, but I wanted hear read allowed. At first, I wasn't wild about the reader, but I gave it another shot and ended up enjoying the narrator. If you get a chance, read or listen to the books by this author. They're awesome and he's a fantastic writer.
