I like the style and the story has also some good ideas (Hunger Games meets Fame?) but the wording was too frigging long - to use one of the youngster expression that you can find in the book. And then what about the method the Atlantean use to choose people? Pure luck? they can even kill each other, during the semi-finals, shooting with machine guns without even knowing who are they shooting to, maybe the next Beethoven taken down by a casual bullet... are you joking? Total non-sense, sorry. Anyway it kept me turning pages, so it is worth a read.

3.0 su 5 stelle Depends on how you relate to whining.... 29 novembre 2015
Di HouseOfBosk - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Short version - Earth is doomed by impending comet collision. Descendants from Atlantis return to Earth and offer a chance at rescue to Earth children of middle/high school age, provided they can survive the qualifying tests.

The main character is Gwen (G2). Events focus on her struggle to qualify, dodge bullies, preserve her three siblings who are also testing, and maybe find love along the way.

I found the story entertaining, but not compelling enough to move on to the other books in the series. I found Gwen to be a real whiner, which was a turn off for me. The story was saved by the interesting supporting cast, and the puzzle solving that occurs as part of the qualification. During those times, Gwen undergoes a personality change, becomes a terrific problem solver, then returns to whiner status sometime later. Maybe that's what life is like inside the head of a teenage girl. I wouldn't know. But it did distract from the story for me.

If that represents reality for you, or is something you can tolerate, you may find the story more enjoyable than I did.

Editing was well done with few if any grammatical or spelling errors. Dialog and plot development were decent and engaging. My biggest turnoff was the whining. Maybe if Gwen grows up in the later books they would be more enjoyable. But with so many books available, I am not willing to invest the time to find out.

5.0 su 5 stelle Judge for yourself, but I really couldn't put this book down 2 agosto 2016
Di GreenMtnDoll - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Couldn't put this book down. I read right through it, immediately purchased the sequel, read through that, and started over again with Book 1. All in 2 days. I am in my 60's and I read YA novels with a sci-fi connection as long as the language doesn't rely on heavy use of swearing to fill in dialogue. I think that the author has a grasp of the struggles of teens, and then throws them into these impossible sink/swim, win/lose, live/die situations. While it gets a mite tedious reading of Candidate Lark's mooning over the young men, that's a part of teen life (been too long to remember!). I do not feel that the story line drags at all and was able to put myself in the story line as an observer. I could 'see' the action and feel as if I was riding one of those drones! I suggest the reader be patient with questions of the story line. While one might think that after a struggle to live or die, that the teens would be grateful to have made it through Qualification and attitudes change as a result. Human nature doesn't take long to assert itself. As to the negative comments concerning the aggression and the brutality and why the Atlanteans need teens from all four quadrants, I'm sure we'll be introduced to that answer in one of the sequels. The various popular novel series all use this structure; Hunger Games, the Atlantis Gene, Divergent, Morality Code, and probably others which I have yet to discover. Enjoy the novel because even this 60+ female reader isn't beyond the enjoyment of reading through the excitement and emotion filled adventure.

5.0 su 5 stelle Very enjoyable! 10 dicembre 2016
Di Andrea Norton - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I was ecstatic to find out how long this book is. 600 pages of apocalyptic suspense? Count me in!

I'm a huge fan of stories like these (as mentioned in many other reviews, it's like THG, The Maze Runner, and such). Yes, plenty of these stories have been written, are being written and will be written. Each author has a different take on them and how people would react, and that's why I love them.

By now, I'm sure you know the premise of this book. We follow Gwen in her journey to become Qualified, but we also loosely follow her siblings, friends, love interest and a few Atlanteans. There are a LOT of characters in this story, more than I usually come across. They're introduced through the entire book, right up to the end. This can be confusing and tiresome for some readers, which I understand - I used to not be a fan of a lot of characters but, in long stories like this, it works out well.

Gwen talks to the reader. We get her first hand experience, her thoughts, all of it. That is part of why this book is so long. Gwen doesn't hold much back. She does tend to ramble a bit and I believe she was written that way because she IS human, and we all ramble in our heads and even out loud sometimes.

It's been said in other reviews that Gwen saves the day, she's good at everything, all that. She's not good at everything and that is made clear through this story. She calls herself out, asks for help and accepts help. Yes, she does save the day often but she is no Perfect Protagonist, either.

I did wish we learned more about the Atlanteans in this first book, but there is more to come. The third hasn't been released (as of this date) and I'm currently reading Compete. More is revealed as we go along in the story. The pacing actually does work out well, but you have to be the type of person to settle in for a long ride, because this is not a short, read in a weekend series.

Gwen has a crush on Logan, so there's the usual YA romance thing as well. It's not overly done, although Gwen does get a little goofy now and then. I'm not a fan of Logan, but his character is interesting and does have depth. There's more to him than she sees, I beleive, and I'm looking forward to learning more about him.

As for Qualify itself, there are things that don't add up, as other reviews have stated. The Atlanteans respect for all life vs how the Semi-Finals and Finals go is a huge one. But again, with this being a four book (as of right now) series, there is a ton more to come, and these things usually work themselves out as we go on.

I see a lot of people stopped reading due to the things that don't add up, which of course, is understandable. I've done that too with book series. My suspicions and curiosity with this one is more than enough to keep me interested to find out if the Atlanteans are telling the truth, if Atlantis is what they're making it out to be, if there's more to this asteroid than we've been told, and if Gwen meets her ultimate goal.

I recommend giving this a full shot and going on to Compete, book two. I think it is well worth it. It's a long book and a lot happens in it. If you enjoyed the usual games books, and have read The Testing series, this is definitely one to check out and invest the time into.

5.0 su 5 stelle WOW!!! 16 novembre 2016
Di Amber - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
WOW!!! I absolutely LOVE this book! It kept me reading into the wee hours of the morning because I just HAD to know what happens next. The summary really doesn't do the book justice. I highly recommend readers give it a chance!

Some readers thought the book was too long... I totally DISagree. A lot of YA fiction is straight to the point but lacking finer details and the stuff that "happens in between". This book set scenes, showed characters, told the story, and kept me on the edge of my seat all at the same time. The pace through the first 3/4 of the book is a bit slower... the author took her time weaving the story a bit more. The last section was a claustrophobic hold-your-breath race to the finish line.

This book would be a great one to take to the gym (maybe as an audio book?) or before/during exercise. The whole time I read it I was torn between keeping reading and getting up to run/go the gym/go to the pool/go rock climbing (note: this is abnormal behavior for me as I'm about as active as the main character - the book was inspiring!).

I liked the characters (although, not the unlikeable bully types ofcourse!). I liked the main character - she had her strengths, her flaws, her weaknesses. I liked that she wasn't perfect, but she used the talents that she had in unique ways.

For me, this book has that hard-to-define "something" that will keep me coming back again and again to re-read it. But for now....I'm rushing off to read book 2!

5.0 su 5 stelle Purely pleasure! 5 settembre 2015
Di Cheryl Lynch - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Normally I feel a responsibility in reviewing a book to be a critic. Someone who dissects with surgical precision the plot, characters, grammar, etc. "Qualify" enchanted me into relaxing all those strident restrictions and allowed me to be entertained. I'm sure there are flaws in the accuracy of this story, but frankly, I didn't care. I enjoyed getting caught up in the story so much that I pushed aside all outside distractions and allowed myself to be totally absorbed into the fantasy. I had an entirely emotional response to this book.

The Earth is irrevocably about to be destroyed. A enormous asteroid will collide with our planet in a little more than two years when we meet up with our main characters. All attempts to change Earth's fate have been exhausted. Coincidentally, the human population has been given an opportunity for rescue by the distant planet of Atlantis. Yes, the same ancient civilization fabled to lie beneath the Atlantic ocean. It seems that during the last cataclysmic Earth disaster, citizens of Atlantis set out in space to find an inhabitable planet replacement and have been living there for the past twelve thousand years unbeknownst to Earthlings. They arrive simultaneously with the asteroid threat with an unusual proposition for savings their human brothers and sisters. All of Earth between the ages of eleven and twenty are invited to audition for a chance to be trained for three qualifying rounds of trials that will ultimately produce just ten million teenagers to receive a place on the space fleet that will relocate them on the planet Atlantis. The entire world has accepted that this solution is the only one remaining to its inhabitants.

We meet the Lark family on day one of the preliminary qualifications process. The four Lark children are all within qualifying age range and with their potentially final goodbyes to their parents, they head off to try and make the cut. Gwen Lark is our narrator. She is an intelligent, compassionate nerd that doesn't really feel she has a chance at qualifying because of her lack of physical prowess, but is determined to do her best and never give up hope. From the very beginning Gwen and her family pull you in and you feel the desperation and hope of their experiences seeping into you through the talented storytelling of Vera Nazarian.

This story is an emotional roller coaster ride filled with adventure, drama, intrigue, and surprise. There is quite a bit of science involved that is far above my knowledge to refute or verify and I actually felt like I learned quite a bit just from reading fiction! I was so impressed with this book that I immediately purchased and finished the sequel, "Compete", to this series. In case you are interested I will be writing a favorable review of that book also. One note of caution: The series is supposed to comprise four books and the remaining two have yet to be published at this date. There are some series books that I do not recommend starting because they are unfinished stories that will cause the reader more aggravation than pleasure without having the completed set. However, both of the published volumes in this series are complete stories in themselves. While I wait for the completion books anxiously, I feel content with the stopping place and not dangling with unresolve.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a fast paced gripping story of individuals forced to strip down to their most important individual values by catastrophic circumstances and a desperate intent to survive. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
