30+ IT/Geek Male. Used to read lots, but now the "reading" is best done via audible.
So, this book... This boook was even better than Divergent. Without a doubt this is the best book of the series. Emma Galvin as before is fantastic as Tris, and HOLY CRAP!!!! I mean seriously, my mouth dropped and I ran inside (from the car where I had to finish listening to the last few minutes) - to post about this on Facebook and tag all my teacher/reader friends at once. THIS BOOK makes Divergent a must read, so you can have the joy of this second book. I powered thru this book, finding excuses everywhere to just keep listening. Do yourself a favor, and pick up this series!! --- Just don't be too mad when the pacing changes in book 3.
Not necessarily. I am a strong advocate for audiobooks there are readers who struggle with words and audio can help them overcome barriers. I prefer to use audiobooks while having the print version in front of me as well.
It was all very memorable. I loved watching the relationship between Tris and Tobias grow.
Tris will probably always be my favorite.
Yes, of course!! It was torture to have to push pause or go to sleep!!
I hesitated to jump on the ya trilogy bandwagon but after caving am thrilled I did. This book was a fun listen with an excellent narrator and engaging storyline, strong characters and enough twists to keep me involved. Loved insurgent as well - despite the negative reviews from others and will happily purchase allegiant just to find out how it all comes together.
My oldest daughter is reading this along with every girl and boy in her school. Honestly, I can't sit down and read books like this, but as a parent I must do something. So thanks to Audible, my huge "to do list" and some headphones, I listened to it over the week.
One thing is, I can now use the book to talk to her. She has no idea how I know the stuff in the book (I asked her yesterday how brave she is), but her thinking I read it makes me the cool dad.
The story is better than expected, but not enough to keep me on my the edge. The reading surprised me and was well done.
I recommend this to dads to see what their girls are reading. There is young love (naturally) and I feel it will help to use this when talking about her future and goals.
Now.....on to book two while I still have the nerve.
The tale picks up with the very next frame of the picture and the action never stops. The growth in the characters is evident, although I do wish Tris would stop bemoaning being just 16.
Continue with the friends you made in Divergent.
I'd say it would rank in 5th place, it was good, interesting, and told the story well.
Triss and Tobias together
The Love Story continues
Good 2nd in the series
Yes. While I struggled with the story telling, I found the characters interesting.
I really enjoyed the narrator. I thought her voice was good and she brought the characters to life
I was kind of lost through out this book. I liked the first and thought there were parts to this novel that should have been explained earlier. However, the end hooked me into reading the third book in this series.
The story line and narration were both complementary of one another. I enjoyed this story and am eager for the final book of the trilogy.
I had the pleasure of listening to this book on a long car ride with my 15 year old granddaughter. After arriving at our destination, I then read Divergent. We finished Insurgent on the ride home and are now listening to Allegiant. What a wonderful experience this has been. I can't wait for the movie!
I got bored and didn't finish the second book. If I hadn't already downloaded all three books (because I was expecting a great series), I wouldn't have even paid for the second book. Have no interest in finishing this book or starting the third. Maybe if I watch the movie I'll regain the interest
