Love this site! I have a very busy job, so listening to audio books enables me to keep up on great stories!
I can actually answer this. Normally I don't listen to the books I've read, but I just adore Emma Galvin, so I purchased it. I can honestly say that the audio was much better because of her!
Hunger Games, Shatter Me. They have reluctant heroines who evolve and kick butt and have love stories you root for! Oh and they are all dystopian.
The dream landscapes are very interesting. I wish I could go through one. Crazy right? But it got me thinking about how important it is to conquer fear.
Just purchased Insurgent. Loved the book, really looking forward to the audio. Next year the third book comes out! This is definitely one of my favorite trilogies.
This is one of the better books I've listened to in a long time. It had me hooked until the end! The second one in the series is even better.
Those who are looking to encourage Tattoo's, piercing and like graphic violence will love this book.
If she had stayed with the original concept of factions that strive for good attributes I think it would have been great. Instead of Bravery being strived after it was just cruelty and fear-conquering. There are ways of being brave without stooping to torture.
When things began happening near the end.
Anger, and disappointment. I knew a few chapters in this book wasn't for me, but if I'm going to write a bad review I am going to see it through to the end.
I am a parent looking for books for my children this is at the core of my disappointment. This is not a book I want my children to ever read, not because of how it is written but because what it teaches.
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).
