I love fantasy, and dystopia reads. I rarely can get into love and romance novels but it does happen from time to time.

    One choice can transform you - or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves - and herself - while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

    Lore says: "Decent but not as interesting as Divergent"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely loved this book and the first one also. Waiting for the third book to come! I would recommend this book to everyone who has read book one first. Start book one and you will be hooked and be listening to book two in no time.

    Pressia barely remembers the Detonations or much about life during the Before. In her sleeping cabinet behind the rubble of an old barbershop where she lives with her grandfather, she thinks about what is lost. There are those who escaped the apocalypse unmarked. Pures. They are tucked safely inside the Dome that protects their healthy, superior bodies. Yet Partridge, whose father is one of the most influential men in the Dome, feels isolated and lonely. Different. He thinks about loss - maybe just because his family is broken. When Pressia meets Partridge, their worlds shatter all over again.

    Any additional comments?

    Though the story is great and the performance is fabulously done by four different people I still found it very difficult to get into it overall. I will need to try to listen to this again and hopefully I will be able to give this book more than a 2 or 3 star rating or at least figure out why I do not care for the book.Slow paced and boring at times but I continue listening because I love the concept of their society.

    Cannie Shapiro never wanted to be famous. The smart, sharp, plus-sized pop culture reporter was perfectly content writitng about other people's lives in the pages of the Philadlphia Examiner. But the day she opened up a national women's magazine to find out that her ex-boyfriend has been chronicling their ex-sex life is the day her life changes forever.

    Would you listen to Good in Bed again? Why?

    I plan on reading this book again in the future. This reading moved from body image, to love, to hate, to hope and to moving on in life even through tough times. I normally fall for novels that have a dystopia theme however this novel pulled me in because the main character is portrayed as a strong female who can work through life as it comes at her. A very real life novel on how it is to live in today's world, almost like a reality TV show.
