Compelling, suspenseful, surprising.
How Tris learns what it means to be 'truly' dauntless.
Generally a perfect performance.
No, just surprises toward the end.
This is a series not to be missed!!

Yes, I will listen to it again right before the third book comes out. It is an excellent tale, and I will need to refresh my memory.
I have never read a book that so flawlessly interweaves observation of human nature with mystery and action. The only somewhat similar authors I can think of would be L. Frank Baum, C.S. Lewis, and Agatha Christie.
The fact that this author is only in her twenties is just stunning to me. She is a truly gifted writer, definitely touched by the Muses. My daughter and one of my students recommended this series to me. Readers of any age should not be turned away by the Young Adult label.
Of course you should start by reading the first book, Divergent. Once I borrowed that first book from the library, I couldn't wait to read the next one, so that is why I ended up purchasing the second book from Audible.
The absorbing action of Divergent continues. Great story by Veronica Roth, and Emma Galvin is a perfect selection to deliver the first person narration.
This is a good follow-up to Divergent. This series is almost as good as The Hunger Games, and better than The Maze Runner.
I am a middle school reading teacher who loves to show students the wonder and joy of reading.
This was a superb follow up to Divergent. This book keeps you on the edge of your chair.
Trish - she is trying to figure so much out and be true to herself and honor her family.
She did a wonderful job.
Be careful if you read this while you are driving. You might not mind being stuck in traffic.
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
I was not fond of the narration as a whole....but the story was complex and very interesting....
When Tobias asks Tris to hang on for just 2 more weeks...she did not want to, but she does....
When Tris is finally saved..and Tobias washes her feet...touching...
possibly after I got passed the first half...
Again, the ending of this book saved the entire story for me....and yes...it made me want more! Interested in the next book...I now need to see where it ends...
The pace in the book was great it flowed from one scene to the next I made time to listen to this so i could hear as much as possible in one sitting.
the characters were well developed and author stayed on point with characters never waivering
when she gave herself up
do not trust any one
cant wait for next one
The story is amazing. It's an incredible book about what can happen if the world has forgotten it's humanity. The world is divided by personality traits. It's incredible, I can't wait for the next book!
It's similar to the Hunger Games series where people are have stopped living life and accepted the life that the government has given to them until there is one person who wants more. It's a strong female role.
The end of the second book kept me at the edge of my seat, I couldn't stop listening! I'm not going to kill the surprise but it's incredible!
When her mom admitted that she was not much different than herself, she wasn't an outcast.
Can we get reminders when the next book comes out?
Yes! This story was so captivating that I am listening to it again with my nephew!
Tris and Tobias are my favorite characters they are complex, clever, and caring.
I have recommend this book as our schools next book club novel!
Along with Divergent, this is a great read for teens exploring their upcoming roles in society. (Although they don't know that, they just think it is a great read!) We had one of the most interesting teen boy's book club meetings after this was chosen. We met in a Pizza place and half the place was listening to the boy's talk about the book. One family, sitting near by, even asked to join the conversation.
