This is a fast pace story, beautifully performed, thought provoking and exciting. Ms Roth plunges you into the divergent's world quickly yet thoroughly. Ms Gavin's narration is flawless and never annoying like so many young sounding narrators can be. I was hooked in the first two minutes, and never lost interest. The story's scope is so much greater than I expected, pulling you in, preparing you for the sequel and leaving you wanting more.
If you like the Hunger Games... you'll LOVE this. Can't wait for the next book to come out!
Ibwould recommend this because the story is so well told. Veronica Roth did an amazing job bring long the characters to life.
I love Tori. I love how she helps Tria at the beginning and becomes somewhat of a big sister to her.
It brought out some anger about the way the world was being ran in this world and it definitely affected me.
I came across this title after I finished the Hunger Games series and I was hesitant to get it, despite the rave reviews because I just didn't believe any YA novel could live up to that series. I was wrong! Though totally different from the Hunger Games, Divergent is just as wonderful. The romance in this novel is amazing, the story is amazing, and the writing is equally so. It's very poignant and the characters are wonderful. The world the author has created is incredible. Veronica Roth has a truely unique mind. I started listening to this book with very little expectations, but after the first few chapters I was loving it. The narator does an excellant job, she's very easy to listen to. If you like dystopian novels, romance, and a great story, you'll love this one.
Yes, it was well written, original, well narrated, and had a delicious gloom to it. Worth a credit - or two :)
Four, and maybe Christina.
No, but will if I get the chance.
This book was a great read. I found myself reading it every chance I got and even downloaded the newest book in this trilogy. It is suspenseful, making the reader wonder just what is going to happen next. Written for the younger reader, but enjoyable for all ages. I would definitely recommend it.
Tell us about yourself!
This was a fun, fast pace book that I recommended to my daughter. I think the author really captured the confusion any teenage girl feels at any time let alone deciding if she should leave her family and its known restrictions but being somewhere she is loved for the unknown family but excitement. The love interest is sweet and like any that age should be: confusing, heartwarming and stealed kisses here and there.
This is just a plain old good story with good narration. It is interesting, moves along quickly, has a strong female lead character and is not predictable. It's great to see books classified for "young adults" (something I am not) that have strong, independent female leads. I have recommended this book to many of my friends because I felt it was a well written, entertaining story that could be enjoyed at any age.
Captivating Surprising Inspirational
Beatrice' s Mom,The woman who stood cloaked by the sullenness and stillness of grey. Deep inside burned like a cool yet intensely hot fire for what she believed in and died to fulfill her purpose. She his the true heroine behind the scenes who created Tess who provided her with the clues the desire and the drive to bring about a change and the unfaltering loyalty to her family no matter the cost. A truly strong bloodline worthy of Dauntless.
No but I have preferred her reading prior to others that I have heard.
One choice, One moment, and the path of destiny Diverges, but YOU MUST CHOOSE.
A surprising read that captured the audience of both a 14 and a 31 year old at the same time. My younger sister and I were trying to bridge the gap between our ages by trying to find something we could share in common. We created the secret book club of two and after reading the hunger games choose Divergent. In great anticipation over the third release we have read the two books twice over. We love the characters and the story completely. Veronica does an outstanding job of describing the world of Tess so well that you no longer feel like you are reading but the words take visual and metaphysical shape. Without even realizing it you are running, leaping, diving, and experiencing the adventure simultaneously.
