Yes. This book reminded me of books like the Hunger Games and The Giver, but is still completely unique and interesting.
I really liked the different characters as well as the world Roth created.
I enjoyed the way she conveyed emotion. I could really feel what the character was feeling. The only downside was that when two characters spoke back to back, it could be a little hard to tell them apart.

I loved this book so much! Emma Galvin did a fantastic job. Actually listened to this twice which I never do. LOVED IT!
I didn't do much for the first twenty years of my life, spent the next twenty in the military, and the twenty after that in college. Then, I mostly retired.
I would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the Hunger Games trilogy, or general sci fy with a strong female lead character. I listened to the first two books in one weekend, and my wife enjoyed them right along with me.
The Hunger Games trilogy
Great characterizations, clear voice, easily listened to.
What can I say? I am sad that this book has come to an end. I don't think I've said that in a long while. This book surpassed my expectations. I went into it thinking good but not above par. It will take much for another to compete. The Audio was exceptional. Emma Galvin did an AWESOME job with all the characters, IMO. Did I feel that Divergent was written with only the YA reader in mind? NO.... and for that I gave it 5 stars. I will tell all and reccomend to everyone to read or listen to this gem. I am in GREAT anticipation for Insurgent on MAY 1ST.....CAN'T WAIT!!
I can't stop listening to this! I'm half way through and I just couldn't wait to write my review. Excellent narration, story, pacing and characters. You will not regret listening to this. I don't want it to end! If you are a fan of Oryx and Crake, The Hunger Games, or even the His Dark Materials trilogy; you will enjoy this book. The main character is a thoughtful, resourceful, strong-willed and smart young woman. The world Veronica Roth has created here is fascinating. I am really looking forward to the rest of the series.
Being an avid reader you get the feeling many story lines follow the same sort of equation...but this story took me by surprise. In fact nothing happened the way I was expecting and I quickly found myself cheering on the characters and biting my nails in anxious excitement. Although it skated over some moments I felt could have been more emotionally dramatic the characters and story could not have been better. I am very impressed and will certainly recommend this book to others.

Consistent throughout and good character development
The ending was my favorite part.
Great book. Very interesting. I can't wait to see how the second book develops.
This is such an awesome book!! I couldn't stop listening. I am so excited for Insurgent to come out in May. I made a reminder on my Iphone for May 1 so I can start it that day!
Enjoyable, fun, suspenseful and great narration. Highly recommend this one, and can't wait for book 2, Insurgent to come out in May!
Especially loved the narration by Emma Galvin. Can't wait for the next book to come out! Story is very fast moving and the characters capture the imagination. I highly recommend this story.
