    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"
    "Excellent!"

    If you could sum up Insurgent in three words, what would they be?

    Brave, Honest, Beautiful


    What other book might you compare Insurgent to and why?

    Nothing...it is it's own...but I would put it in the dystopian category, with books like the Hunger Games


    What does Emma Galvin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great voices...realist...stingingly emotional.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh and cry...excitement...a great mix of everything...just like life.


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful book...great series.

    Tally Youngblood is quickly approaching her 16th birthday and the mandatory pretty-making surgery that accompanies it. But Tally isn't sure if she wants to be a placidly happy Pretty. When a top secret organization threatens her with remaining Ugly forever, she reluctantly spies on the rebels who have refused the surgery. They think it changes more than just looks and are working on a cure. But they need someone to become Pretty to test it out.

    Cather says: "Unexpectedly enjoyable"
    "Loved!"

    Where does Uglies rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best I've listened to...


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Uglies?

    All of it...


    What aspect of Carine Montbertrand’s performance would you have changed?

    I didn't care for the performance...I hated the voice of Shay


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    All of it...


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great listen. If you liked the Hunger Games, you will love this! Very creative!
