    "Cinder isn't the best book out there, so no surprise the audiobook isn't the best either. I love young adult books so I could in theory be favorable towards this one, but it just doesn't measure up."

    "This is one of my addiction when it comes to books. I love series! Specially The Hunger Games books! This was a futuristic style and those teens who were chosen to be tribute. The characters are the best and I had fun with their quest to stay alive till the end of the game. I recommend this to young adults that are imaginative and likes thrilling books."

    "In my opinion one of the best books of the series. It's the transitionary period between the more carefree books before it, and the second section which is heavier and darker. It's well written and great for young and older readers alike."

    "This is an excellent choice for listening to a book. If you have read the first two, you have to see how it plays out for Katniss. The book is gritty and moves fast, keeping you just as interested, if not more interested, as watching a movie. Katniss has survived two Hunger Games and is leading a revolution, so you MUST listen to how it ends. For YA listeners, you'll be transported to Katniss's world, seeing a feeling things through her perspective. You won't want to take off your headphones! "

I found it very informative, though I imagine I would have fallen asleep had I been listening as a young adult. Still, quite important for young adults to learn about finances and their financial well-being."
