Im a 39 year old self employed female who does a lot of driving and audiobooks make driving enjoyable for me. I enjoy conteporary and historical fiction as well as fun comedic romances.
yes my kids have listened several times , they enjoy the story
Tris or Four are favourite characters, it is a toss up. They are both memorable in their own way.
What would you choose?
Great listen. highly recommend if you have teens who like to listen in the car with you, we were all able to enjoy this with the exception of one borderline inappropriate scene.
I listened up to chapter 10. I just couldn't get into the story. The violence between the characters was bothersome. I figured it would just get worse as the story progressed so I opted to return it and move on to something more my style. The narration was pretty monotonous, but that could be related to the depressing back drop of the setting. However if you liked Hunger Games you may like this story as there are strong similarities between the two books.
I love the strength of the female character!
Insurgent because that's the next book in the series.
She is crazy talented! My favorite of all time!
Yes! Love when she jumps first!
Must buy this!
Yes, I liked the book overall except it was slow going. Once it started to roll I got into it and decided that I had to continue with the next book. It did leave me wanting more.
I liked the narrator, she did a very good, I liked her voice.she did the parts great. I didn't like the he said, she said parts, I could follow with out that.
Yes, she let it open to all kinds of things to happen!
Good book other than a slow start I did enjoy it, I have purchased the others in the series
This series is great! I love it just as much if not a little more than the hunger games. As an adult I sometimes feel silly that I enjoy YA lit so much but with books like this I don't care. It has an entertaining plot and characters. The narration is very good.
Listen to all kinds, but mostly enjoy witty light-hearted entertaining reads. Stay away from romance novels & books with heavy violence.
If you liked the Hunger games then you should like this series too. The story line by itself is not exactly like the Hunger games, but it is similar enough that I would recommend it to anyone who enjoyed that series. I enjoyed it and was able to listen to it with my kids in the car (although they were watching DVDs) without turning it down so low I could barely hear it. No bad language, no adult content mostly just the occasional kiss and some violence, but nothing I consider graphic violence.
A teenage guy who loves listening and doesn't mind reading books :)
Yes! The Story of Beatrice (Trice) is a ride! With her going from extreme to extreme in her Choosing ceremony! She is a great character and haves a good personality!
Mockingjay is probably the closest. It isn't like the Hunger Games but it reminds me more of Mockingjay.
She sounded like a young girl. Made Beatrice come to life.
Divergent: the story of love, loss, and luck.
Get this book!
Veronica Roth is a very engaging writer. She writes about a future Chicago and creates a story that you can see really happening! I love the characters. I love the fighting and friendships and love that develops. I love how "Trice" develops from a teenager trying to find herself and decide who she is and where she fits in. In our world she would be considered a genius. In their world she's divergent but she fits in in 2 other sanctions. So she chose the one where she would feel the most free...free to be herself and to try things she would never have been allowed to do in her parents sanction. And I fell in love with Four! What a champion and gentleman and fighter! Great book. I just finished the 2nd book. Can't wait for the 3rd and final book. But will look forward to anything she writes from now on. She paints with words so you can see her story!
Loved Emma Gavin in Insurgent and Divergent. She has the right age voice for the part! And of course, the book is great! Loved it!
