Probably not better than the Hunger games, but I'll have to see how the sequels support the story - although I am sure readers will enjoy it if they found the hunger games fascinating. There is almost too much similarity between the novels: strong willed female protagonist, factions of poorer populations, and even a Peter and Gabe. The general similarities may have decreased this book's ranking for me, but the details of the plot are different enough to enjoy this quick read.
I really like the overall plot of this book as the main character finds out who she truly is. There was too much romance and love story in this novel for my taste, but overall a an excellent audiobook. Best audience is probably college student and older.
My wife and I listen to this on a trip. We enjoyed it so much we almost didn't want to get out of the car. We started listening to it again on the way home and finish the book before we got there. We ended up having to purchase the next book in the series since we were so loving the story.
I'm a caffeine zombie suffering from constant book hangovers.
the whole divergent piece in conjunction with fear landscapes
the quote “Fear doesn't shut you down; it wakes you up”
that is wasn't distracting to the story
Faction before blood? or blood before faction, if given a choice what would you choose?
