Publisher's Summary

From birth to death, The War is all the citizens of Dystance know. As children it is drilled into their heads that war is the purpose behind all existence.
Winter doesn't agree. She's stumbled across remnants of life the way it was before The War began and now she longs to be as free as her ancestors.
With help from her best friend, Cedar, and the boy she is forbidden to love, Tallow, she believes she can do it. Winter can see a life beyond the Pickets, beyond the constant hunger and the threat of death, beyond the war machine.
Can one teenage girl and her dream of a better life really change the whole world?

Hunger Games & Divergent But With Extras

Would you listen to Dystance again? Why?

Yes, when i started i must admit i thought not another Divergent book, but no it goes way bigger!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Not sure liked quite a few think Cedar due to the sence of humour :)

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The whole book was good but the end twists and turns and emotional roller coaster will grab you.

Any additional comments?

I am a Mark Tufo fan, so i got this of course, after the first hour i was a bit nervous as i was thinking another divergent/hunger games but after 2 hours in i was really starting to enjoy the book, the story was getting stronger than similar ones at this stage, even if you don't get the associated references in this book to Mark's other books you will really enjoy this book, the story gets better and better and bigger and bigger. The twists an turns are very engrossing. shame only just over 10 hours as the book was done in a day, most enjoyable looking forward to the next one!

I have loved all of Mark Tufos books so far and also Sean the narrator (so much that I have listened twice to all of them - something I don't usually do) .
This story - although it has regular names thrown in from previous books, just doesn't have the same 'link' or 'feel' as the others had, mainly because it seems more like a teens book. None of the characters were particularly likeable (really wished they'd all died an hour into the book then it would have been over quicker) and I found the narrator so irritating I could only listen to small portions at a time (usually have head phones on for hours while doing mundane chores).
The best bit was the epilogue, better narrator, more up beat, and probably means a second book, which I will not buy because of this one.
Get rid of that narrator - she was terrible.
