Let me start by saying I know this falls under YA and I am not so YA anymore. That said, it was an enjoyable book overall. Here are my details. What started out as a narration style that nearly grinded my interest to a halt, I ended up being OK with it as I allowed myself to realize she was going for the plain teen who is confounded by much. As someone who involuntarily fixates on things, I found the many, slightly varying, pronunciations of "Erudite" pulling me out of the story. Though I did appreciate the smooth delivery and elevation in tone and speed when necessary. For this story, I am more interested in the societal structure, the pieces that make it up, and the history than what I felt was a poorly expressed or displayed romance. This may be considered a *SPOILER*: How did she not know who Four was when he's only two years older? It seemed like mostly everyone knew everyone else in their own factions. Again, overall a good story despite my nitpicking.
I'm a writer and I read like one. Just waiting for my big shot.
Narrator paces the story well and captures the emotion beautifully. You'll feel like you're there.
Can't wait for the next one.
I really like this book I'm excited to read the next chapter or the next book
I saw the movie it has nothing to do with the movie a few similarities but mainly the movies one story and the book is another better story
This was an exciting story to read and listen to with my students who are learning English. They just finished it and are asking for the next one in the series.
The story was good with an ending on the last few pages I was not expecting. The performance was great.
a creative consumer
Even though I had already seen the movie, this book filled in the gaps and enriched the picture. Can't wait to listen to the next one in this trilogy !
