Her voice was to high pitched and girly. She made the book seem like a lark even in the most serious scenes.
No, I had to force myself to listen to it.
This series seemed to start off well enough. While, I didn't much care for the first one, I read the second hoping it would get better. It did not, it got worse. The stories pace is so slow it would have put me to sleep if the narrator's voice wasn't so piercing and annoying.
Boring. Took off too slowly. Fell in love with the first book but tried reading and listening to the second and couldn't get into it
Eh childish empty
I didn't make it through very far to find many
Moves far too slow!
As one reviewer said "I want to tell her to get over it all. Her guilt, her self-doubt, her lack of self-esteem...she seems to go on and on. And I find it difficult to determine whether Tris is talking or thinking to herself due to the narration." I totally agree with that statement. I found it to be almost painful!!!
There was too much Tris and not enough of Four!!
Yes, it showed how important it is to guard our freedom!!
I have recommended the book to my friends and sister because I think the evolution of the story is just breath taking. Every time I listen to it I'm in another world living at Trice's place.
There's many memorable moments in this book but (without giving away to much) I'd say that the execution is my favorite one.
I've listen only at Divergent from Emma Galvin's other performances and this one is pretty close since it's the second book of the trilogy but I feel like this one is deeper and it gave chills.
I listened to the Divergent series about a year ago, and remembered the second one being not as good as the first, and third one being downright awful. Having recently seen the Divergent movie, I tried relistening to the second book. I had to stop halfway through. The narration is pretty hard to listen to (after mostly listening to Barbara Rosenblat and Steven Briggs). I think a lot of the appeal the first time through came from wanting to know what happens next; once you know, it's a lot harder to put up with. I'll definitely go see the movie, but I think I'd have to be pretty desperate to listen to the rest of the novel again.
I liked Divergent and was looking forward to this book, but it was disappointing. The characters fell short of what you would expect from their factions. The author missed a great opportunity to develop a coming of age book with a female lead character, young girls need more heroines. Triss is selfish, self centered and unlikeable in this book. Four looses most of his personality and the story gets bogged down. I won't spend the money for the last book
I would definitely recommend this book to a friend. This book ended in a way that I did not expect. I am so excited for the next book,
It was worse than Divergent. I wasn't real impressed with the first book in the series but I muddled through it and decided to find out what happened next. I'm sorry I wasted my credit.
The story itself has great potential. The characters, however, are self-absorbed, petty, and uninteresting. I stopped listening and just asked one of my friends to give me a synopsis of the overall story.
I felt irritated with the characters as well as the narrator.
I enjoyed listening to the narrator, and she does a good job with the pace as well as distinguishing between characters and scenes.
Trish needs to be less "woe is me". It is the main theme of the book, but or thus, it is too excessive.
Haven't finished it yet. Don't think I have a favorite scene though.
I hope they make the movie but with less of Trish's self-loathing. Same actors as the first.
