I decided to read this after watching the movie and while I loved the movie there is always that part that can't stand up to the book. I liked parts of the movie better than the book but again the book is better with the details. Even the narrator, Emma Galvin, was good and even sounded like the actress who played Tris in the movie. I can't wait to get started on Insurgent!
This series does not disappoint. The narration is perfect, and you easily get wrapped up in the story. It's a serious that I find myself going back to and listening to over and over again. Great book, great series.
Well performed. Complex emotional story. Most characters multi dimensional. Love story portrayed as amongst equals, instead of between the creepy mentor/disciple one depicted in the film. Exciting read for all ages.
Read us a story.
Ok, I'm hooked. I gotta read the rest of the series!! Hurry, before the movie comes out....
I plan to mommy-daughter listen to this with my young teen, who is dying to see the movies. There's a lot of tough stuff in this story, but it's stuff we should talk about.
The narrator has great suspense and excitement, once I got past her very-teen voice and slightly choppy start. I love how she distinguishes between characters' voices without obviously "doing voices" of male and female characters. She's a good choice for this series.
