Summary

Thirty-five beautiful girls. Thirty-five beautiful rivals...

It's the chance of a lifetime, and 17-year-old America Singer should feel lucky. She has been chosen for The Selection, a reality TV lottery in which a special few compete for gorgeous Prince Maxon's love. Swept up in a world of elaborate gowns, glittering jewels and decadent feasts, America is living a new and glamorous life. And the prince takes a special interest in her, much to the outrage of the others.

Rivalry within The Selection is fierce, and not all of the girls are prepared to play by the rules. But what they don't know is that America has a secret - one which could throw the whole competition...and change her life forever.

"Reality TV meets dystopian fairy tale in Kiera Cass's delightful debut. Charming, captivating, and filled with just the right amount of swoon!" (Kiersten White, New York Times best-selling author of Paranormalcy)

Reader is poor but story is nice

I have the hard copy of this book and it is really a nice light reading. But I really dislike the reader. Sounds like a computer generated speech.

I enjoyed the second book in the series and found it very difficult to stop reading or listening. I liked reading as the story continued and the love triangle continued. I loved reading about America and Maxon and found myself wanting the next time they would meet and America would realise her true feelings for Maxon. I did find America a bit annoying at times as she seemed to keep dragging them both along a bit too much. I found it was also a great book as you start to learn alot more about the other girls in the selection.
It was a great book cannot wait to continue in the series and find out what happens next. Xxx

Robotic

I can normally listen to any narrator, however Amy Rubinate just sound so robotic that I cannot listen to it long enough to get into the story.

Giving up after my 3rd attempt. Shame! :(
