As a sequel to Divergent, this book was just ok. Divergent was a great story, leaving me wanting more, so I was eager to hear this second book. I was only slightly disappointed, and glad for the closure.
I would indeed. Emma Galvin captures the spirit of a 16 year old perfectly and her voice shifts enough to make all of the main characters very unique, each really feeling different.
Its hard not to enjoy Triss, she is much more what I always wanted Catniss from the hunger games to be, someone who responds to crisis but isn't fueled by anger and hate, she has a real purpose.
I also listened to Divergent, but that is my only other experience. Both books were wonderful to listen to.
Honestly, it seems like a cop out but I think the tag line from the book really hits it perfect. One choice can change your life.
This series really reminded me of the hunger games in its general feel, but while it has moments of brutality, the society represented here is flawed but not inherently evil like in the hunger games books. This world is a very different premise and watching both its flaws and strengths play out is a joy.
When I like something I'll let you know. If I don't, I'll let you know that too!
I resisted Audible's recommendation that I buy Divergent but did not hesitate to get Insurgent right away to continue the series. I'm anxiously awaiting the third chapter in the Tris' Trilogy, promised in fall 2013. Insurgent does a fine job of moving the story and Tris' relationship with 4 forward. Tris never seems to stand on firm ground because many of those around her have shifting alliances or are secretly working for or against her goals. I really enjoy listening to Ms. Galvin as she ably gives Tris' voice the strength and intellect this character possesses.
It was a great story line and everything was described in detail and easy to follow. I absolutely loved the series.
Emma Galvin is my FAV narrator. I have listed to a lot of the books she has done, and would chose to listen to hears always!
Yes. Unfortunately, i could only listen 2 hours a day on the drive to and from work.
Great Book. Can't wait for the movie.
I've never read the print version.
When Four realized that Tris was telling the truth and aired the video.
In a minute. The story and narrative was excellent which kept u inthrold as if your were there part of the story.
The whole serious was wonderful
Personality especially being dislexia
Defiantly especially to see how close to book.
I bought this book within minutes of finishing Divergent. It's suspenseful and thought provoking and really fun. It got love and loss and I can't wait for the next book!
It feels like she enjoyed reading it to me which makes it that much more enjoyable.
Very interesting. Writing-wise, it seemed to be jumping around a lot and was a bit harder to follow in the audio version than the first book, but the story is intriguing. And I still have some of the same problems with the characters that I had in the first book - they flip-flop a lot in their personalities and decisions. And the teen angst can be a bit over the top. But, that said, I can't wait to read/listen to the third book! Definitely a social commentary and I want to see which direction Roth heads with it after the big revelation cliffhanger.
It is a great series, if you liked the first one you’ll like this one. Fair warning there are a lot of parts where you may get mad at what is happening/decisions being made. There were tons of “what is she/he thinking” and “seriously” moments. When my sister was reading it she text me every time she got mad at one of the characters choices, I got lots of text.
Say something about yourself!
I love that this book picks up right where the first one stops, and i love that the author does not try to catch you up on the story, she writes as if they are the same book and writes assuming you read book one, so there is no retelling of anything. I LOVE THAT! She just picks up at the exact spot that book 1 ended and kept writing. I think this the first time I have ever read a book series that the author was not constantly having to keep explain something because it happened in the first book. This author is loyal to the people reading the book already and is writing for them, so she does not waste your time re-telling anything, she just keeps the story going. if you haven't noticed, i think this is really cool.
I love this story, there is no love triangle that seams to be typical in most young adult book series. The characters surprise you. And there not a lot of drama, but just a lot of action and story telling. This is a great series and I will read anything this writer puts out.
