This book is a fun and interesting enough book. Definitely intended for young adults, but if you like Hunger Games, for the story, then you should like this book.
Definitely, from the beginning to the end I could not stop listening.
The factor initiation.
No, but she was an excellent narrator.
In love with audio books!
Enticing grabbing deep
when Tris went through Tobias's fear landscape with him and help him through it; the fairest wheel; the jumping out of the building at dauntless initiation.
nd when Tris fights Tobias in the attack simulation and resists to shoot him and he finally remembers her.
Outstanding! Full of depth while it is still a love story. I loved every moment of it.
I wish it didn't talk about throwing up as much...seemed like every few minutes or so the girl is throwing up or tasting bile, or feeling sick, vomiting or tasting her own vomit. Too much vomit.
In all, i'm glad I listened to the audio version. I've listened to a lot of bad performance audio books and this wasn't one of them. A+ I didn't care for the story much though and that is probably just because it wasn't written with my demographic in mind.
Its a fascinating tale that would begin on may 5th, 1989 in Mease Dunedin hospital and from there the legacy grew. I am adult now.
this book is very suspenseful and it has excellent timing. its filled with descriptions in great detail.
i really can say my favorite character is four because there's a lot secret's still left to unfold.
Emma Galvin is a fantastic reader. She reads all the parts in the dramatic detail the book is written.
absolutely, couldn't stop listening once i began.
i wish Emma Galvin would read more books.
Everyone has been gushing over this novel for quite a while, but I was a bit apprehensive to read it. Everyone told me it was a lot like The Hunger Games, which I wasn't a huge fan of. Boy, was I silly to wait so long to read this novel; it was amazing.
Tris was the heroine we all love to read about. She's fierce, tough, completely kick-butt, yet at the same time she shows some vulnerability. She wants to find her place in life, and she's willing to risk everything to take that chance.
Four is scary and yet completely sexy. How come the nice boy-next-door is never the sexy one? It's always the silent, completely deadly, mentor type that gets our blood boiling. Well, whatever your type is Four is sure to fit it. I loved Four's story. You won't learn the whole picture until the end of the novel but he is one of those people who will capture your heart and make you fiercely protective of.
Veronica Roth spun a dangerous and corrupt new world. It's intriguing, frightening and completely captivating. I read this very long book in one sitting...yes it's that good. The writing keeps you wanting more and more you will be wanting. Good thing there is a sequel coming out next year.
I can't say this book is comparable to The Hunger Games series. This book was okay, but I was not enthralled listening to this book. It didn't make me want to jump up and read the next one. The last three-fourths of the book were the best. I will listen to the next one, but it is still not as good as The Hunger Games!
As an adult, I find myself reading more and more young adult books for a fresh perspective on strong female characters. Tris does not disappoint!
Of course this series is comparable to The Hunger Games and a little bit The Mortal Instruments. I really enjoyed The Hunger Games... I LOVED Divergent.
Emma's voice captivated me from the start. A quiet, forceful voice the sends shivers up my spine, tears to my eyes, and longing in my heart. I'm definitely going to look for other books she narrates.
Absolutely! I have the terrible habit of flipping to the last page of a book to see what happens. Can't really do that with an audio book. It was 2:00 in the morning when I finished Divergent and I immediately poured another cup of coffee and began listening to the second book of the trilogy... Insurgent.
I'm a new audible customer. I purchased the Divergent trilogy because of the 25% off sale and I can't tell you how happy I am with the purchase. I've told many people about the book and the narrator and hope to get more people to envelope themselves in Tris's world!
the story was so well written.. Roth drew me in from the first paragraph and kept me mesmorized till the last.
the dystopian world Roth created
When Al tried to apologized for almost killing Tris. Galvin narrated to emotions of the scene perfectly.
Loved the whole series and highly recommend. Galvin was perfect as narrator. If you like Galvin try Kresley Cole "Poison Princess" also a Dystopian world and Galvin is great.
I have 4 Audible accounts and my wife thinks I may have a problem.
An interesting idea but I feel like I was watching an episode of Dawson's Creek. I have never seen an episode of Dawson's Creek but I imagine it would be something like this in a Utopian setting... Really I couldn't finish it. Sad because I really enjoyed the Hunger Games and was looking forward to something as good.
