Computational cognition, ethics, transhumanism, etc.
yes, it helped me get through a few boring chapters. There were parts where I couldn't remember if I had listened or read (albeit at the bookstore).
Train jumping, the finale: the revelations & action.
Each moment of courage.
No, there were 2 parts when I felt like abandoning it altogether, BUT I am glad I did not.
This novel is brilliant! I was a bit hesitant but it was gripping, intriguing, and the characters were fabulously developed. I am awed by the young age of the author - what an accomplishment. Trice is a strong, complex, relatable, and inspirational character - perfect for inspiring young women. I am so glad that I took a chance on this series.
I enjoyed this story, it was a great beginning. I found it had long parts, but not once did I want to stop listening. The end was perfect in the fact that it makes me want to purchase book 2, I cant wait for my next credits!!!
A Book Addict who found she could clean house and get her book fix with audio books.
A teen book every bit as good as the Hunger Games, while being nothing like it. The world created really makes you think and yet tells a compelling story of people trying to get along.
One of my favorites!
I love the dystopian world created here, its fascinating to me how the people are segregated into groups that dislike one another, yet rely on one another for the functioning of their society.
Tris. Without a doubt she is the hero. A small girl who see herself as selfish and weak, is probably the most selfless and strong and brave character in the whole book.
I'm not creative enough to come up with one!
I just re-listened to this book, since the 2nd book just came out I wanted to refresh my memory of this world created here. I remember loving it the first time I listened to it over a year ago, but forgot just how MUCH I loved it!
Its predictable in many ways, as to how the story will unfold, but it is carried out with so much heart that you can't not love it!
Great book- I couldn't put it down.
Similar to Hunger Games in a futuristic America sense.
Well written story that flowed well. Interesting characters. Excellent narrator made listening easy and enjoyable.
The characters and their development throughout the story.
Not listened to before
Probably if I had the time.
Could not wait to get to the sequel. Decided to read it on Kindle it was quicker to read it myself and enabled me to download other audible material to enjoy.
I'm a pharmacist that loves listening to audible on my commute to and from work every day! My library is growing fast! The different narrators are fascinating....really bring these stories alive:). Makes for a joyful commute!
Original, impressive, excellent
Emma Galvin brings Tris alive in this original work
When Four recognized Tris even though he was under the simulation
Can't wait for the last book!
I wanted to actually be educated before making the statement that this book was an awful lot like The Hunger Games and is probably riding on it's hype. But I couldn't find much online saying whether this author could have been influenced by The Hunger Games or not. I liked both. Both kept me listening. I just think this genre is the hype of the moment, though. Overall, a good, compelling read.
Say something about yourself!
Absolutely! It was so great! I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I loved it and gifted it to a friend because she HAD to hear it too!
I loved how Tris had this internal conflict going on at the same item that the world around her was in conflict she just had no idea. It was so much bigger than her and she didn't realize it, but she wasn't selfish about it, she adapted so she could help everyone. She wasn't even limited to just helping her family, she was brave and she saw the bigger picture.
I love being read to! Her character voices where awesome and clear and I loved how she portrayed Tris!
Gosh, I don't even know where I would start! But this book should ABSOLUTELY be a movie!
