I commute for 4 hours a day 5 days a week via train, yet I am not a train employee...perhaps I should be.
Narrator is very good. Voice quality and emotion is great. Story is alright. I got bored only a few times.
Didn't love the ending but overall enjoyed this book. Looking forward to reading the next two and then watching the movies. Narrator was great. I'm 33/M and just finished Hunger Games so decided to try another trilogy. Pleasantly surprised, just as I was with HG.
I feel as if this book was geared more towards the teen population but the story was really good and it was well read. It is a bit touchy feely at times but nothing too bad. I would definitely recommend it.
I enjoyed the first half of the book, learning the premise of the factions and getting to know Tris. After that, I felt like I was listening to a bad episode of Dr. Who--one of those episodes where everyone walks around like an automaton under the command of a power-hungry autocrat. I also had to skip through the romance parts. Although I at first enjoyed Four's hands gently touching Tris chin and fingers stroking her hair, it wore thin.
No. I'm just not interested in what happens next. Tris is not three dimensional enough. I liked her enough to finish the book, but no more. Also, I don't understand why the story isn't over. They saved the world. They revealed a coup attempt Isn't that enough? Clearly, the author wanted a sequel--I wanted an end.
The reader is excellent. She brought the voices to life.
I think, if there were a follow-up, it should not be about a continued fight but rather about how the society is rebuilt. Unfortunately, more fighting is what was desired.
I really enjoyed listening to the story. I ended up seeing the movie before I listened to the book. As usual the book was better, but having seen the movie it was easier to visualize the characters.
