This was a fun book to listen to during a long road trip. Complete with a lot of action and adventure, Roth does a great job keeping you hooked all the way through. Looking forward to reading the next book in the trilogy.
It took me so long to get into this book. Months really of starting and stopping. It picks up the last 4 hours of it though. Haven't heard the greatest reviews about The next book either. Up in the air as to if I will read it.
I will admit that it took me a while to get into this story. I listened to the first hour and a half or so and then dropped it because nothing had happened to grab me. Picked it back up about a month later on a long car ride. Was a good story to pass the time in the car and by the time the trip was over I was hooked!
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.
