Long Drawn Out and Repetitiveness
I am going to read the last book in the trilogy to see if it gets better.
She reads the books with emotion, depth, and makes you believe in the characters
The End when they watched the video. This was the highlight of the book!
I enjoyed divergent the movie and more so the book. The first book gave a lot of information and a great story line; however, the second book deal with the following things:
1.) Tris fighting between a suicidal death to see her parents or live in the hell that she is in
2.) Insecurities with her 16 yr. old mind between killing Will and fighting with four
3.) Betraying Four by teaming with his father
4.) Not willing to hold a gun to fight her way out for survival.
5.) Divergent means different
6.) Her (Tris) parents left their factions to start over
These are repetitive throughout the entire second book. It feels like this book was just a filler and she did not know to write. I like the author but this was not her best book!
Loving books :)
One of the best, all three of these books were great.
Maze runner, the intensity and kept my attention. I couldn't stop listening.
Plays a great character.
The reader was ok for the material she had
Very immature book. The characters reactions were completely unbelievable. I have teenagers, and the characters behaviors made this book very not fun. I gave up half way and just read the summaries and don't feel like I missed anything. The characters were stupid. They reacted stupidly. They acted stupidly. A dumb teenager book written for teenagers.
Professional librarian type, amateur historian.
I still think this series is a low rent version of the Hunger Games. And the only reason I bought Book 2 was I saw the movie (based on Book 1) which made the story line more acceptable/tolerable, or just made me forget the problems I had with Book 1.
Book 2 did help a bit with the problems I had with the plausibility of the storyline. However it was replaced more with a feeling that the society created in the book was modeled more on the social structures of a American high school. Everyone eats in a big old cafeteria according to their faction and a lot of drama happens there.
The book did have its high points, however not enough to have me hunger for the next book. Maybe the next movie will get me to bother with that.
This book was emotionally frustrating because of the story line. It's very back and forth. And toys with your emotions. But it's still a great book.
She does a great job in expressing Tris. She's a great narrator!
The Divergent series is a wonderful trio to read. They are incredibly entertaining and heart wrenching at times. But very much worth the read!
Her voice was to high pitched and girly. She made the book seem like a lark even in the most serious scenes.
No, I had to force myself to listen to it.
This series seemed to start off well enough. While, I didn't much care for the first one, I read the second hoping it would get better. It did not, it got worse. The stories pace is so slow it would have put me to sleep if the narrator's voice wasn't so piercing and annoying.
Boring. Took off too slowly. Fell in love with the first book but tried reading and listening to the second and couldn't get into it
Eh childish empty
I didn't make it through very far to find many
Moves far too slow!
As one reviewer said "I want to tell her to get over it all. Her guilt, her self-doubt, her lack of self-esteem...she seems to go on and on. And I find it difficult to determine whether Tris is talking or thinking to herself due to the narration." I totally agree with that statement. I found it to be almost painful!!!
There was too much Tris and not enough of Four!!
Yes, it showed how important it is to guard our freedom!!
I have recommended the book to my friends and sister because I think the evolution of the story is just breath taking. Every time I listen to it I'm in another world living at Trice's place.
There's many memorable moments in this book but (without giving away to much) I'd say that the execution is my favorite one.
I've listen only at Divergent from Emma Galvin's other performances and this one is pretty close since it's the second book of the trilogy but I feel like this one is deeper and it gave chills.
