Audiobook Mini-Review – The Power of Six
The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore (10H 4M)
E That being said, The Power of Six continues that same status quo. It didn’t ‘wow’ me, but I have moved on to The Rise of Nine.
The good side: where the first book seemed juvenile, this book took a step into maturity. It didn’t deal with hard-hitting adult issues, but a lot of the high-school mentality disappeared.
More good: We meet Seven, and she’s interesting. At first, I didn’t really like her, but her story quickly grew on me.
Even more good: my main issue with the first book was the performance. And even that was improved this time around. The addition of Marisol Ramirez to handle the chapters dealing with Seven was a welcome addition. The stories of Four and Seven were taking place with completely different people in different parts of the world. Having a different narrator for each really helped to keep the two separate.
The not-so-good: Not enough happened, in my opinion. It seemed like a very idle part of the story where the characters mainly ran in place while other elements of the overall story were pushed into place.
As I said earlier, I’ve already moved on to the next book. They’re nice and short, which makes them easy to digest. The overall story arc is really interesting and my intrigue for the final endgame has been building for years.
