Description

For fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent comes a story like no other....

A toxic river divides 19-year-old Violet Bates' world by gender.

Women rule the East. Men rule the West.

Welcome to the lands of Matrus and Patrus.

Ever since the disappearance of her beloved younger brother, Violet's life has been consumed by an anger she struggles to control. Already a prisoner to her own nation, now she has been sentenced to death for her crimes.

But one decision could save her life.

To enter the kingdom of Patrus, where men rule and women submit.

Everything about the patriarchy is dangerous for a rebellious girl like Violet. She cannot break the rules if she wishes to stay alive. But abiding by rules has never been her strong suit, and when she is thrust into more danger than she could have ever predicted, Violet is forced to sacrifice many things in the forbidden kingdom...including forbidden love.

In a world divided by gender, only the strongest survive....

cheesy narrator for a meh story

First of all, the narration was cheesy, unnecessarily dramatic and overdone. At first, I thought this book was okay, but it just kept getting worse. I struggled to finish and the fight scenes were narrated so hilariously that I almost laughed out loud a few times. I generally like ya fiction, and I liked hunger games. I just had trouble with the plot, it was rather boring. I knew I should be getting more excited toward the end, but I was very relieved when it was finished. it was pretty predictable, but I know I'm a good guesser. I wish the author would have stopped writing sooner, and it is rare for me to not be inclined to finish a series.

Plot line is asinine in so many places.

This story is so full of holes. I was continually rolling my eyes at the lack of character development and motivation. Truly disappointing after all the reviews I read.

Predictable

Predictable story line. Not much substance. Whiny narration. Save your money and find something else

Cliche City

I essentially had the entire story figured out in the first hour of the audio book. This author could have made something really good with this story and with the main character but it's the same old convict being given a secret mission to avoid death trope.

Of course she has to pretend she's married to some dude. Of course she falls for the absolute worst person you could fall for in this scenario. Of course her life is on the line but she consistently does dumb things because love and stuff.

I struggled to get through all 10 hours. This was one of the most poorly written books I've ever been exposed to.

Boooooring!

Moved so slow. Not at all like the other types of books in this genre. Read it bc Audible recommended and it was just 10 hours of waiting for something interesting to happen. Save your time and money.

Hard to believe

I liked the story but it was difficult to get behind. The background of the character and the back story of the world was too far fetched to be believable. More should have been done to prop up the story of the surroundings and the why of where the settlements were and what "the green" was. Why if seemed to thrive with animal and plant life but not be a place that could be used for crops. The severity of the gender based societies took things a little farther than what I thought would be able to develop naturally. It ended up being a frustrating story thin on development of the world history, structure, and drive.

Sorry to have wasted my time.

The concept has a lot of potential. The actual story, does not. Everything is shallow! the characters, plot, timing... Everything. If you enjoyed Hunger Games, reread them, don't read this.

3 basic characters, very little evolution. Many convenient situations that just happen to line up. I just don't like how this government "needs" this 19yr old girl to save the day when she has no realistic skill set. she agrees to a fake marriage, one in which neither partner ever try to pretend is a real cover story. Then they just happen to get a hunky high level official to babysit her? In a world where women are not even allowed to go outside she frollicks around with him on police cases and fighting matches.

This story is very slow, improbable and as shallow as a baby pool.

Predictable and poorly written

To compare this book to the likes of The Hunger Game trilogy is an affront to Collins. While the basic premise sounded creative, the details were not well formulated into a cohesive storyline. Too many things don’t add up, like why either country wouldn’t be trying to save their genders from the oppressive opposing country. And leaving your book on a cliffhanger to sell the sequel...lame. I bought a book. That’s one story. Finish the story in said book.

“Idiot”

I must have said “idiot” 50+ times while listening to this book. How could any character consistently be so obtuse? The very end was intriguing, so I gave it an extra star, saving it from the two star review I had planned to submit. The main character bugged me - like Bella Swan bugged. The story should be called: idiot girl full of sexual tension makes bad choices. There were few redeeming qualities about the book, and more than a few plot holes. I’m torn between moving on to the next book of the series and cutting my losses. I’m mildly curious if the remaining books in the series will address the major plot holes created by book one. Still, unless Violet grows a brain in the next book it may be just as infuriating to read.

The dumbest dialogue

Cool story, liked the action, but the words coming out of the character’s mouths made my eyes roll. I want to know how it ends, but can’t read another one

Hielt mich sehr schnell gefangen

Auf welchen Platz würden Sie The Gender Game auf Ihrer Hörbuch-Bestenliste setzen?

Da ich noch nicht viele Hörbücher besitze, sehr weit oben.

Es ist eine spannende Geschichte und ich werde die gesamte Serie hören.

Welches andere Buch würden Sie mit The Gender Game vergleichen? Warum?

Tribute von Panem.

Eine junge Frau ist die Hauptdarstellerin. Sie ist absolut nicht auf der Suche nach Liebe, sondern möchte nur ihren kleinen Bruder wiedersehen. Insofern erinnert sie mich eindeutig an Katniss.

Hat Ihnen Rebecca Soler and Zachary Webber an der Geschichte etwas vermittelt, was Sie vielleicht beim Selberlesen gar nicht bemerkt hätten?

Kann ich nicht sagen, da ich es nicht selbst gelesen habe.

Wenn Sie dieses Hörbuch verfilmen könnten wie würde der Slogan dazu lauten?

Eine Frau in der Welt der Männer.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Eine futuristische Gesellschaft. Brilliant ausgedacht und mit vielen Details liebevoll gestaltet.
