I've listened to some incredible books lately, but while this story was good and fast paced,I would say it was a little above average for me.
It compared with Hunger Games because of the futuristic setting,but the main characters aren't as easy to like.
She's wonderful, no matter what she does.
I thought it was sad to think families could be split so easily.
I was interested enough to buy the second book and am enjoying it as well.
Reading is my passion!
Intriguing, fast-paced, smart
Four - He is genuinely good-hearted and truly cares about Tris. It is clear that he does not approve of the Dauntless' ways of initiation..... he is strong, caring and moral.
Her voice was perfect for this story, she sounds much as I imagined Tris would sound.
I don't know how you can't make the comparison - teen book - kids being divided into different groups at a certain age of development to live with there district (so to speak) - evil adult leaders - teen romance.... The list keeps going.
At first it held my interest pretty good but in the end, it turns into a sappy teen romance.
Just starting the second book. Hoping it sticks with a little more action and less sappy romance ( I do mean sappy - not the good kind).
Divergent is one of my favorite audiobooks I've listened to. It tied things together really well and and fun plot twists that made me not want to stop listening to it. Between the plot itself and the narrator, it was a very good fit. Unlike many other books I have heard, she fit in well with the story and sounded very animated about what she was reading. I definitely could believe that she was the main character. I would recommend the book to everyone. It is a wonderful choice.
I loved this book, however I very much enjoy this type of genre! I will say that the beginning was a little slow and a tad confusing. It was hard to remember which faction was which, but after she joins a faction I started learning them better. When she joins a faction is also when the book starts to pick up, so don't give up on it before then! I love that they mixed in a love story with the plot. The story reminded me of the Hunger Games. I didn't realize there was a sequel to this book until just a minute ago and it has made me very excited to see what's next!
I had never heard of this one before and took a chance and got it- I am glad I did! Great story- cannot wait to get the 2nd one and find out what happens next!
SO much better than Hunger Games. The main character is likable, surprising, and assertive without being either boring vanilla or overtly aggressive. It is a teenage girl's struggle with weighing social expectations against noble self-sacrifice and service to others. There are curve balls in the plot to keep things interesting and a little realistic romance that is strung along throughout. Roth's novel reveals love beginning with building trust and understanding. A worthwhile and interesting read.
Tris is a strong, smart, fearless character who tends to act first, think about it later. Four is exciting and a perfect match for Tris.
Fast paced action, characters you care about
Insurgent. She does a great job
Yes! The pacing makes you hungry for more
Yes I liked it so much that I quickly downloaded the next book and am now patiently waiting for the next one! I really love the concept and was really impressed. Cliff hanger ending tho... be prepared to want more.
She did a very good job! Not monotone at all. It seemed like she enjoyed reading the book to me.
I could not stop listening!
I found this book to be entertaining and engrossing, with good character development. The author's descriptions of places was very good and I kept picturing the locations and how the landscape would appear in a movie.
