I understand. It is a teen aged girl in the middle of a civil war, but honestly, how many times does she complain about things while others around her make great sacrifices while she stabs then in the back and refuses to face her own inner conflict. the way it is written makes her inner conflict so obvious that it becomes monotonous hearing about it. in print I would not have finished the book, but muscled through it on audible because I didn't have anything else loaded on my phone for a long drive.
While the overall plot and story line work to maintain your interest, Roth's dialogue and story line are insipid and juvenile - even for YA literature. Her writing shows little insight and is completely devoid of cleverness or intelligence. The performance is about what you'd expect a teenage girl to sound like but does becomes grating and childish too often. The movies are far better.
This book has made a perfect movie inside my head which was mentally captivating, stimulating and keeping me at the edge of my seat wondering what's going to happen next. Well done and very well written!
The book story continues with Divergent Tris fighting against Jannine Mathews and group of Eurodyte. The book ends with WTF WAW effect and wants you to immediately grab the third book
