    Story
    (14161)

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    Grant says: "It's not for me. Loved it anyway."
    "Lackluster story with an explosive finale"

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I only read this book because there is a movie coming out with a fairly attractive actress playing the main character. The majority of the time, I was bored, and angry at Trice for being a moron. It was not, for the most part, time well spent.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have made plot twists more unpredictable and made the main character more intelligent, making Trice more relate able.


    Have you listened to any of Emma Galvin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, and at first i did not like her narration. But Once I got used to it I enjoyed Emma's performance.


    Could you see Divergent being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Well it is being made into movie and i plan to see it.


    Any additional comments?

    Divergent is a rather silly premise with a rather boring and predictable story with an interesting finale. The ending is so good in fact, that it almost sets the entire book in a positive light. Almost. And I can see why people like it so much. I plan to listen to the next book when the next movie is about to come out, but other than that I cannot justify spending any more of my time with this series in the near future.
