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.
The story line is fresh and moved along fast enough to keep my interest. I listened to the story on my morning and evening commute to and from work. Although it is a young adult book it was not written in a childish manner. My only disappointement is the 3rd book is not out yet to conclude the series.
I do not have a favorite character. Oddly I was drawn in more with the sub characters.
Emma'a voice is pleasant to listen to. The texture of her voice was youthful enough to convince the listener she was Triss
Really wish the 3rd book was out.
I love all kinds of books but don't really read them anymore I would rather listen to them but I will still buy the book if I love it enough to collect it.
Another good book cant wait for the final book of the series to come out to see what happens with Tris and Four I hope all ends well.
As a sequel to Divergent, this book was just ok. Divergent was a great story, leaving me wanting more, so I was eager to hear this second book. I was only slightly disappointed, and glad for the closure.
I would indeed. Emma Galvin captures the spirit of a 16 year old perfectly and her voice shifts enough to make all of the main characters very unique, each really feeling different.
Its hard not to enjoy Triss, she is much more what I always wanted Catniss from the hunger games to be, someone who responds to crisis but isn't fueled by anger and hate, she has a real purpose.
I also listened to Divergent, but that is my only other experience. Both books were wonderful to listen to.
Honestly, it seems like a cop out but I think the tag line from the book really hits it perfect. One choice can change your life.
This series really reminded me of the hunger games in its general feel, but while it has moments of brutality, the society represented here is flawed but not inherently evil like in the hunger games books. This world is a very different premise and watching both its flaws and strengths play out is a joy.
