Mom, wife, reader. I love reading a book I don't want to put down.
Thoughtful progression of Tris. She is a great analyst and observer of people.
Really enjoyed this book. Love the characters and overall story. Emma Galvin does a great job narrating. Just found out Divergent will be a movie! I can't wait to see this story on the big screen.

Of Course. It's a great book. The only thing I would change would be to cut back on the lovey stuff. Other than that Awesome book!!
I like it that there is another book to listen to and learn more on Tris and Tobias.
She's a great narrator. She brings Tris to life.
No, just left me wanting more.
Do yourself a favor and read the reviews for book 3 (the final book in the series). No spoilers that I noticed just a whole lot of unhappy readers. It really is like the author get didn’t care what happened to any of the characters or the world she created. Save yourself a lot of misery and skip this series all together. No more Veronica Roth books for me.
Love a good story but lack the time for the page turn. Love audible cant get enough to listen too
I found myself glued to my earbuds. Couldn't get enough. Keep trying to figure my faction
Retired Life is great
Galvin's reading made the main character believable. This book doesn't explain the details of collapse of civilization - thank goodness no zombies, but a twist on how for people for the commongood, decide how to live meaningful lives within factions -. differemt means to live a meaningful life. This divergence which brings world peace creates a new kind of ethic. Power overcomes and then is overcome by this lively, small 15 year old who contemplates her own sense of morality. Still it is hard to believe a 15 year old could be so strong.
Will read the second and third book - hope I am not disappointed. My bright 10 year old granddaughter has read Harry Potter, not Hunger Games which has children fighting children to the death. At first I thought this would be a good option for her. I think, however, the book raises ethical and emotional issues that pre-teens aren't ready for. Lot of violence through whole book.
Cry, hard to understand how a 15 year old make such a change of goals
If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again there is no use in reading it at all. Oscar Wilde
Veronica Roth is a new author for me, her book dirvergent was very much with the theme of the Hunger Games which I truly loved. This was a great Y.A novel. She really did a great job in capturing the interests of both boys and girls
There are many memorable moments in this book from from the beginning aptitude test, to their placement, to the initiation and the of test of their fears. I really enjoyed this book and think that if you enjoy the dystopian novels this is a book for you
I have not listened to Emma Galvin before but I think she did a very good job with this story. I feel she was captivating and helped hold your interest in the characters
I loved the first two books. And the third, until I felt like the author tossed the dice to determine the outcome of the characters. Evens, this one lives; odds, they die. To say I am disappointed in Roth's handling of the characters and particularly in the ending of an otherwise great series, is an understatement.
It is a gift to create characters that are people we can relate to and embrace. To kill one off with so little thought or finesse that there is no emotional response in the reader, and particularly a character that made the series, is just proof of a lack of skills or a lack of emotional depth. The death of a major character is not something that should be done lightly or in this case, as I opined above, at the toss of the dice.
I like to reread good stories and I am always recommending good reads to friends. This one will not make my list on either count.
I love Sci-Fi/Fantasy books, TV shows & movies :)
The story line is perfect and the narrator also did a good job on the tone of the lines.
The Hunger Games. Because both books are about the society, fighting for survival and of course a little bit of romance.
I haven't listened to any of Emma Galvin's other performances before.
An unforgettable movie that has ever filmed.
Just read this book okay?
Heck yes! Bringing the characters to life and instead of just reading about it was a delight as always for me. I enjoyed this performance tremendously one of my favorite’s actually.
Tobias. I can relate to his feelings of brokenness.
Emma Galvin brings an undeniable energy that makes the reading engrained in my head and heart forever.
LOVE the entire series.
