For background, my favorite authors are George R. R. Martin, Robin Hobb, Jacqueline Carey, Ken Follett, Bernard Cornwell, Kevin Hearne, Jim Butcher and Margaret George.
Yes, it was an interesting listen that left you wanting to know more.
I would put it in the same category as Hunger Games because it is a futuristic take on what happens after society has been re-envisioned after some disaster or another.
Her voice was not distracting and kept me easily in the story.
Yes it was but obviously I did not.
I enjoyed the story just as much as I liked Hunger Games.
Dystopian, teenage angst
Yes. Ordered the next in the series as I like to read an entire series.
Good for teens that have more worldly experiences and mature mindset.
Divergent is in the top 25 of my audio reads.
Four was my favorite character. I liked his take-charge attitude.
Voice was not strong enough for this story.
My three words will be, OMG!
All the scenes with the mind control simulations. They were so intense, I could not tell if what they were seeing was real or not. How much can the "divergent" control the simulations.
All of it. I can tell who was talking before they were mentioned.
What's your faction?
The reader was wonderful.
The story was interesting and kept me hooked.
She brings the character alive. She had the perfect voice for the story.
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.
