I loved the world I was taken to. I just think this book stays at the age level its intended for. Its a wonderful book but not really for adults as much as teens. Sort of copies Hunger Games but a little different so it was hard not to compare.
A wonderful debut novel featuring a dystopian future where the listener can’t help to rethink our present time and society. Even tho somewhat predictable at times, I eagerly await the next novel in the series.
I purchased this because I read that if you liked the Hunger Games then you would enjoy Divergent. I think I enjoyed this better than the Hunger Games. It made you think about people and tempers and goodness of society. My only complaint is that there is not a second book or more to listen too. The narrarator did a great job too.
I must admit that I was expecting this book to be a Hunger Games knock off. I was reluctant to try it but am so glad that I did. It does infact have similarities to The Hunger Games but is able to hold it's own. I was interested and intrigued and mesmorized at once! I totally recommend this book and look forward to the rest of the series.
like so many sci/fi fantasy books, I enjoyed this right up until near the end. Then the author takes a turn that just doesn't fit with the rest of the story. Not great but some interesting twists on old ideas. Wish the ending had made more sense.
Interesting, fast paced coming of age story in a dystopian America city. My daughter and I were both griped by the story. Strong female lead character and well developed other supporting characters.
Comparable to the Hunger Games as a Dystopian Coming of Age Story. If you liked Hunger Games, you will likely like this too. However, the development of the love interest was more nuanced and the love interest was a very well developed character. In addition, less was explained and felt like the main character Trice and the reader are both figuring out darker truths about the society and initiation rituals at the same time.
It is pretty dark at times and so it may be too intense for some tween / teen listeners. My daughter enjoyed Hunger Games and didn't find this too dark / intense. However, there is some pretty graphic violence and fighting which is integral to the plot.
Great performance. She did an excellent job of bringing the complex character of Trice to life.
Yes. There is a lot of story! One could easily miss something!
There is no other book I think it compares too.
When the main characters trying to figure out how they feel abiut each other
Yes when they got to meet there family's.
Well writen book. Would easily recoment.
I was excited when I saw this book premeire on Audible. I was a huge fan of the Hunger Games triliogy and was extremely excited to listen to the first book in this series. I was, of course, a little nervious that the story would not live up to some of my favorites, but I was not disappointed! This was a great story wil great characters and it left me wanting more. I will, without a doubt, be highly anticipating the release of the next book in the series.
I loved everything. I am a fan of Hunger Games and Twilight. Totally loved this book and cannot wait until may 2012 for Insurgent! I wish It was already out. I cannot wait to continue this story!
The way Tris overcame the physical and mental aspects and became a true Divergent
She has an awsome voice. I looked up other books she has done to see if I it was something I would be interested in.
All of the above!
If you are a fan of Hunger Games or Twilight- give this book a try!!!
