    One thought on “Chosen”

    1. It's the end of the world. and of me reading this about 30% into it (Chapter 6 of 18). This is probably a good story, it sounded interesting enough in the blurb. This needs some serious editing. Perhaps with 300 instead of 400 pages this would have been a snappy read.I liked the tone of this first person narrative, but it was apparent rigth away that this is really, really longwinded. Overlong sentences, repetitions of things already stated, pointing out of the obvious, exhaustive explanations o [...]

    2. First off, it's the end of the world. Girl takes care of sick and dying mother But is highly concerned about getting stains on her clothes!?! Pretty sure staining is the least of your worries.Then she decided to leave, packs a trunk of clothes, and a second trunk for her shoes But only takes two bottles of water.Umm, what?!?So sick of insta love novels that read as if they were written by a teen.Girl find guy. Girl and guy fall in love within days of meeting and screw like rabbits. Girl almost d [...]

    3. I didn't love it, hell half the time I really didn't like it. I found it well written and the story well developed, but I had a personal issue with this story. I read to escape and explore the world outside my purview and this book just reminded me of all the drudgery of farm life I just spent the summer surviving. I was having a great time with mysterious illness and post apocalyptic justice and then enter the goats I'm not sure how much time the author has spent one on one with those monsters, [...]

    4. Blah, the book was written very well I just feel that it did not hold up to the kind of book it says its going to be. I don't know if I will continue this series. It seemed liked the book really didn't start until the last five pages. Which I knew was coming at about the half way mark. I just kept waiting for something to happen or make me care a little more for the main character.

    5. Have you ever seen a movie trailer and wanted to un-see it because you feel like it spoiled something of the plot that you’d have rather not known before sitting down to see the movie? With Chosen by Christine Pope, I feel that, as a reviewer, pretty much anything I say about the plot is going to give something away that you’d rather discover for yourself. So, if you are a fan of Christine Pope, enjoy paranormal romance, apocalypse survival stories, or just want something creepy to read, Cho [...]

    6. This is the first book in the Demons & Djinn collection of novels. It was an impulse buy. There are 13 novels in the collection, but I’ve only read the one so far and it might be quite a while before I read another. The post-apocalyptic part is what initially grabbed my interest. There were times when it seemed like the story was going somewhere and then it would putter around, losing the tension that had been built.In a lot of ways this story just wasn’t for me. I’m a little weary of [...]

    7. i have really enjoyed reading this book it was a bit predictable here and there but it still had me gripped i finished it in one sitting. It was missing something for me though or it would of got a higher rating. on to the next book

    8. Finally finished it, terrible book, it's well written but doesn't have anything on it. You get more from reading a newspaper. Don't try it.

    9. Really enjoyable, but awfully drawn out. Really enjoyed the characters and ideas that were spun into this story. However, this could have probably been half the length and still have been quite readable! Ironically, the ending was too rushed and could have been drawn out more - though I suppose that's the hook for the next book. Unfortunately, the 'hook' is also the reason why I do not think I will be continuing with this series. I was close to 4 stars until the very end.I preferred the 'voice'. [...]

    10. where do I begin? I know it has probably been said before but this book dragged on a lot, and most of it was really pointless. However it wasn't until the end that it captured me enough that I would like to find out what happens next. The start and end was thrilling, with something actually happening and making me want to know what happens next, the middle however was so boring waiting for something to happen and thinking it will any page now with nothing but let down after let down. I am intrig [...]

    11. In the Kindle top free books section, there is so much muck to wade through that most of the time I download maybe 1 or 2 e-books out of the 100 listed. Chosen was one such book. Christine Pope has a sophisticated but easy-to-read style, and ohmygosh the opening was killer. People are dying left and right from "the Heat," leaving only a pile of dust to show they had ever existed. You can really feel the panic, despair, and hopelessness as the main character Jessica miraculously manages to surviv [...]

    12. Well, that was. moronic.The first, biggest problem here is that the author doesn't seem to know what genre this is. It's post-apocalyptic, but it's also paranormal, but it's also romance. Certainly there are times when more than one of those categories can be combined but this isn't one of those times. At least not for me. If I'd known how post-apocalyptic it was, I wouldn't have bothered with it, even for free. But adding a paranormal romance to it just made it ridiculous.The next biggest probl [...]

    13. Part of the Gods and Mortals bundleI liked the idea behind this book epidemic wipes out over 99% of the population. Jessica is one of the immune left to figure out how to live. Jessica has some kind of guardian angel guiding her though and she eventually finds a companion in Jace. But she eventually finds out that jace isn't who he says he is and "The Dying" as they call it may not be so random. This started of well, it was interesting and differentbut then it slowed and it seemed like we didn't [...]

    14. The main character Jessica is a self centred 24 yr old. She worries that putting ice packs on her dying mother will ruin her outfit. She is told what to do when a person gets sick by an ambulance officer… and doesn’t do it.The phrase ‘more or less’ appears more or less thirty times. The phrase ‘had a feeling’ is about the same. Add in ‘I guessed’ as well.Her mother just died and she wants to give her father shit for pouring himself a glass of scotch. *blinks* given she was out on [...]

    15. There is a whole sea of books waiting to be downloaded in the Kindle free ebooks scetion.Chosenwas one of them.The blurb sounded interesting and it was until I reached the middle of the book. Lets' start from the beginning.I almost liked the starting of the book.It all started when Jessica, a professor, noticed that everyone in the city is falling ill. The illness turned out to be a deadly virus making everyone turn into ashes. The apocalyptic genre doesn't get any more predictable. But the stor [...]

    16. This was part of a ten book bundle offered free on Kobo. So I thought I'd give it a go (who doesn't like a free book.)Although I enjoyed it and will probably buy book two just to read the conclusion, it was also frustrating at times. The main problem is happens until four pages from the end.Yes the set up was great, the premise works well (I liked that an episode of The Walking Dead was airing during the end of the world)but that's all there wastup. there is no complication (until the end) nor r [...]

    17. This was ok for light reading. I'd give it a 2.5 if I could do half stars. The pacing was weird. The apocalyptic event happens so soon in the book that you don't really have time to form attachments to any of the victims. Next comes a mysterious hint of the supernatural, but before it can do much more than pique your curiosity it totally disappears and the book warps into a quiet little house on the prairie-ish tale of eeking out a living in said post-apocalyptic world. Which is fine, but it lea [...]

    18. I came across this book from the gods and mortals bundle. The thing that I loved most from this book is the description of everything!! I know some people didn’t like that about the book, but with the way everything was described it enables the reader to paint the picture of what the author truly wants you to see! I’m usually not one on apocalyptic themes but it was interesting way to bring the Djinn into the story! I thought it was an original idea, as opposed to the typical, genie in a lam [...]

    19. Was first introduced to this book via Bad Magic: Novels of Demons, Djinn, Witches, Warlocks, Vampires, and Gods Gone Rogue. I loved the books but only felt the need to purchase additional books for a few of them. This happened to be one of them. I loved them although I only bought books 1-4. My only problem with them was how accepting some of the people were regarding everyone they knew dying. Realistically I think people would have been a bit more distraught watching everyone die and turn to du [...]

    20. I read all the tragedy that Jessica survived through, with more than 98% of the world's population now dead, and it left so many unanswered questions - what happened? why not me? am i the only one? what now? what do i do? don't do? - that I just HAD to keep reading to find out !!! You should too. Then, when everything was good, . it ended so suddenly, with a flash of the door smashing in and men with guns, now its back to many more new questions, so i need book 2 for the answers you should too! [...]

    21. too long winded. Some of the end of the world statements where so extreme, the wondering about if it was true kept my focus slipping away. If everyone drops dead, the water and power should go on working for at least a little while, stuff like that is just irritating. yes I know it's "make believe" but there is a differences between super natural rules that you can make up as you go along and actual rules of nature.

    22. Nice Mix of Paranormal/Alien, Romance, AdventureI liked the understated “one and only” “chosen” aspect of the story. Even the physical confrontations were straightforward and not overly graphic. Now, on to the next book!

    23. Read this in a book bundle, didn't realize it was the first in a series so I was extremely disappointed with a cliff hanger ending. Enjoyed the book enough to finish it but not enough to continue with the series.

    24. I was a little concerned about reading this story after checking the reviews. The book came in a box set that I had purchased. I do not understand the people who did not enjoy this story, I could not put it down. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

    25. Super read Great book no mistakes and very little repetition I felt that the story moved along on a good pace. Loved it can't wait to start next part

    26. At first, I had a hard time reading this book because I felt it dragged on. However, the more I read, the more I got use to Christine Pope's style of writing. Great book overall!
