I am a miracle worker. Doing what I can to choose love over fear.
I have not read the printed-verson due to my reduced vision. The audio-verson is addictive because the narrator takes you into the world.
Everything from chapter six. If I spill it it would ruin your listening experience.
Not before this book.
Yes! I started listening to it of random. My friend asked me to check it out. I love L.O.V.E. this brilliant work. I liked the first "The Hunger games" book, but still I feel this author is closer to her readers in age. Which is maybe why it takes you in, without the same youth book feeling as the "Hunger games" Yes "Hunger games fans loves this work because it does contain: A future story,selection,divisions,training resulting in death etc.
It does contain a better more honest love-story.
This is a book adults should not miss out on! I wanted to give four stars because I usually give either one or five stars. I hoped to give something in the middle, but this is too amazing.
This was an awesome book. Was so awesome.
The girl with the dragon tatoo and/or The Hunger games, I could not put those books down, as well as Divergent. I didn't want to fall asleep, because I wanted to finish reading.
Yes, It was so good.
Yes. Adults and Kids will like this book. It touches upon what makes us human our egos, brains, braun, kindness, sacrafices and being truthful. Too much of either one can cause a serious imbalance. The story is told in such a way that it does not shove the lessons down your throat.
Tris. She struggles with multiple facets of the above virtues, which is what each of us go through at some point in our lives. She is tough and doesn't know it, but learns along the way her strengths.
There were a couple of times in the book where I had to go back and replay because of the depth of the message.
This series is Great! Action.
I love this story, and the fact that they keep the same narrator only made it that much more enjoyable. I read the books 1st and listening to them was just as amazing.
Tris...Tobias....Tris....Tobias...hard to say, I like each for different reasons....
I WISH ALL SERIES WOULD TAKE A HINT FROM THIS SERIES AND KEEP THE SAME NARRATOR!
Well written, wonderfully narrated. I was a little apprehensive about this series at first given it was recommended to me by a 13 year old, but I must say this book surprised me. Yes this is your typical dystopian story that has been so popular of late, but it is refreshing in the fact that Veronica focus's less upon the ooey-gooey lovey-dovey that we have become so familiar with lately and more on a moral battle and a defiance of what is expected, for no other reason that to defy. Don't get me wrong there is your fair share of PG Twilight damsel in distress, but a fair listen nonetheless.
Divergent was an excellent audiobook.
Not unlike listening to a Harry Potter book, Divergent was well performed and left you wanting more.
Without question, the lead character, Triss, was the most engaging character performed by Emma Galvin.
Well worth the time and money to listen to this book.
Yes, if they enjoyed futuristic novels...."What if ....?" novels.
This book felt a lot like The Hunger Games trilogy....with a twist. It delved more in to the innate complexities of our personalities. It questioned labeling of people from a very young age.... and the pressure to accept those labels (especially teenagers).
I really enjoyed the pace of the story and felt like it slowly developed all the complexities of the characters.
I felt that it did a great job of looking at the emotional and mental aspects of the main character, while still keeping action and mystery going throughout. It was really good at keeping your attention!
Emma Galvin did really great with the internal dialogue of the character. She was a good choice in terms of the voices fitting the mood and the story. It took a bit to get used to her though, because she sometimes sounded like she was smacking her lips while speaking.
I did cry at times during this story. I also often got very angry at situations and characters. I found myself talking to them while driving in my car listening to the story.
I wish more people knew about this series. I recommend it a lot but I think there are people who have been burned by the pop culture of Hunger Games and Twilight. I think this goes deeper into the characters though and really look forward to the rest of the books!
I really enjoy fantasy and sci-fi, and so far I've enjoyed catching up on my YA fiction using audible (they are really easy to listen to while driving). My favorite book series is Harry Potter, but some of my favorite books are The Night Circus, The Time Traveler's Wife, and Running with Scissors. I plan to soon branch out with my audiobook listening, but right now I am comfortable with my YA fiction choices :D.
I already have! If you like any sort of YA fiction or dystopian societies, this book is really great! And the best part is, there's not a love triangle so you do not have to team up! Woo! I loved the strength of the girl protagonist as well as her ability to realize that this war is not about her. Although it feels she will play a significant part, I'm glad she is not the "special" one. There are a few things that are flawed though, like the fact this is all happening in one city. What happened to the others? That's what I'm really curious about, I hope the next book explains it well enough.
Everyone has the need to compare any dystopian literature to The Hunger Games, but in all honesty this one really isn't like it. If anything I would say it is a more well written Matched. Like Matched, there is a special ceremony at 16 (choosing versus matching) and the people are sorted into different ranks in society. However, while Matches falls into the cliches of romance with dystopian society second, Divergent's romance does not interfere with the main focus of the story.
I really liked Emma Galvin's reading of this book. She spoke words clear and concise, and I enjoyed her other voices for other characters. All in all a good reader.
This would be a hard book to film adaptation (although I am aware they are already working on it), but my tag line would be:
Faction before blood.
Divergent is a really intense story with a different kind of female protagonist. In a YA world full of girls who are surrounded by boys, Tris is used to being a loner and has a hard time believing she can even have friends due to her selfless personality. I really liked the world Divergent created, and I hope it keeps up its fast tempo in the next book of the series, Insurgent. My only qualm with the book is the fact that this all seems to be happening in one city. What's happened to the world outside the city?? I have a feeling Insurgent may cover that ground now that they're heading out to the farms in Amity. That's going to be a really hard subject to explain though, and I fear that the reasoning may not be good enough for me unless all of the US is dead from nuclear explosion. Other than that though, the book is fascinating and has some good insight on human nature. Really liked it!
Thrilling, edgy, captivating

Triss, of coarse
