I don't know that I'd try another, the first was ok, I thought as popular as the series is the following ones would be getting better but if this book is an example I'm done with the series.
Probably not. These books did not live up to my expectations in the least.
Narrator was ok, I can't complain at all. Her voice was a little thin but she read well.
I don't know, I don't think the story kept my attention Errol enough to follow it that closely.
Its a fascinating tale that would begin on may 5th, 1989 in Mease Dunedin hospital and from there the legacy grew. I am adult now.
Fantastic Epic Sequel
Four's Secrets he tried to keep hidden revealed
I have stayed with Emma Galvin's unique sense of narration and perfectly drawing me as a listening. She has a soothing voice. Each character description and character detail is forever stored with in my mind.
Some truths are worth dying for.
In love with audio books!
emotional, deep, moving
The bravery of all characters, the love story that continues to develop.
When Tobias was washing Tris's feet in the bathtub and a few moments later she says he loves him and he asks her to repeat it.
Wow, not for lack of better things to do but I listened to the entire thing in less than 3 days.
Mother. Artistic. Dreamer. Loves fiercely.
The second book in the Divergent series is definitely faster paced. It jumps in right where the first one left off and is more action-packed than the first book from start to finish. I especially love the "plot twist" at the end. (Though, I kind of saw it coming.) There's a lot more that is going on in this book and I think readers will enjoy it.
I would have to say "Uriah" is my favorite character of the first two books for the "comedic relief".
Galvin can "voice act" the characters well. As long as you don't sound monotonous or ridiculously cheesy you're good in my book. ;)
Yes! This series is coming together. It makes since and has a good story line.
Emma has done a good job.
I will buy book 3 and 4 and so on..
I would listen to this book again since it delves deeper into the characters and you get to read about their history. The main character, Tris, states that she is only 16 and much of the emotions and reactions in the story were quite typical for a (childish Tris) 16 year old.
The characters all take on a life of their own and intermingle effectively. I'm pulling for Peter to become a good guy. The author makes you feel that spirit may be down deep inside of him!
The reader gives a great performance!
Show me the credits!!!! :)
It's kind of what you feel throughout this book. You explore the other factions and how they run and find out that it's all pretty much corrupt. The main characters start to fray and you wonder how everything will pan out. The ending leaves a huge WTF feeling as you realize you may have already thought it was happening the whole time, or guessed at other thoughts. So instead of jumping into the 3rd book, you feel like you need a few days to digest everything that happens.
Just letting you know the roller coaster you are heading towards if you get this book, hope it helps. ;)
Not sure I will pick up the next in the series. So far, the first 3/4th of the first book was the strongest part of the series, so far.
I enjoy the narration and the story is an easy listen.
I kind of saw it coming.
It's not a deep story and I see a lot of similarities to the Hunger Games, but I enjoyed the story as light reading material.
When people ask me what I think about these books, I tell them they are some of the few books I rank up there with the Hunger Games.
And I was not disappointed. It took me a little longer than expected to finish this one. Though this was partly due to my crazy schedule this week. It's also due to the fact that it's one of those books I needed to savor. I didn't want it to be over too soon. When I wasn't reading it, I was thinking about it. And even now, after finishing it a day ago (I'm a little behind in my posts this week), I'm still thinking about it.
If anyone thought loyalties were questioned in the first one, wait till you read this one! It begins right after the first one ends. Tris, Tobias, and company escaped the Duantless traitors and Eurdite soldiers to look for safety with Amity (the peaceful faction). While Amity is all about peace, they make clear right away that there will be strict guidelines for all those staying with them.
I do love though that I got to see the other factions. The kids went to Amity, Abegnation, Eurdite, and back to Dauntless and I loved being able to see how the other societies lived. My guess is that this will be important for book 3. And I loved getting to know some of the other leaders of the factions. I found them fascinating. I loved hating the bad guy (Jeanine). And I loved how much the people in this book were forced to learn and understand about each other. It had that book 2 filler feel, yet I do see how this will matter later on.
I loved watching Tris grow. She's had a lot of pain and death to get over, but she does get over it, in her own way. She has really become such a hero, someone willing to die in order for many to live. The decisions she makes in this book are tough. There's one point where she pretty much has to decide which of her friends she should save, while at least one will have to die. And I feel for Tris so much for having to make such a hard decisions.
