Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Rise of Nine by Pittacus Lore, read by Neil Kaplan, Devon Sorvari, and Marisol Ramirez.

Until I met John Smith, Number Four, I’d been on the run alone, hiding and fighting to stay alive. Together we are much more powerful. But it could only last so long before we had to separate to find the others...

I went to Spain to find Seven, and I found even more, including a tenth member of the Garde who escaped from Lorien alive. Ella is younger than the rest of us, but just as brave. Now we’re looking for the others - including John. But so are they. They caught Number One in Malaysia. Number Two in England. And Number Three in Kenya. They caught me in New York - but I escaped. I am Number Six.

They want to finish what they started. But they’ll have to fight us first.

Not exactly captivating

I read the first of this series and couldn't put it down - read like a fast-paced film script and hooked you in all the way through. The second book was good enough, but seemed to have lost it's 'seat of your pants' drive. I thought I'd try the The Rise of Nine on audio to see if the series came across better in that format and it is not that easy to listen to - the female narrators are fine, but the male contributor is awful and sounds too old - it's all very shouty and disproportionately over-excited. It's like the narrator knows the story isn't that thrilling and is trying to inject it in. It misses the mark, sadly.

interesting concept but childish at times

I enjoyed this book but found it incredibly childish at times. I am aware that it is a teen book but so many times while reading it, I found myself rolling my eyes at all to convenient scenes or childish decisions the characters made

Awesome Story

Another awesome story by Pittacus Lore. Still in love with John Smith and hoping Sam Goode is alive. The rise of nine continues on from The power of six. 1 was killed in Malaysia, 2 was killed in England and 3 was killed in Kenya. We have meet, 4 (John), 6, 7 (Marina), 8, 9 and 10 (Ella). 5 is still MIA.

Pittacus Lore is a fantastic story teller and I would recommend this book and the series.

Worth a listen

Book is okay. However having the different narrators narrating the voices of the same characters irritating and spoils the continuity of the book.
