The story was incredibly gripping and something completely different to anything I've ever read before, and the narration was fantastic
Warden of course, closely followed by Liss
Alana Kerr was fantastic with every character (although it did take me a little while to adjust to the Irish accent after listening to the Divergent trilogy). Nashira was by no means my favourite character, but Alana captured her brilliantly.
Before listening to this book I had heard a lot of comparisons between Samantha Shannon and JK Rowling which are completely unfair, they are completely different authors with different styles and different stories, though both are incredibly talented.
I already have! to many friends, and they have loved it too!
I've read the whole series now and it just gets better and better - it's intelligent, gripping and there's not even a hint f a love triangle!
I've only listened to the three Divergent books (I was lucky to get in before they stopped selling to Australia) and all three are excellent - I actually just bought Kresley Cole's Arcana Chronicles because of Emma Galvin's narration
Throughout the trilogy there was both laughter and tears but I won't give any spoilers
Don't go in expecting it to be the same as The Hunger Games. If, however, you like dystopian fiction like The Hunger Games and Marie Lu's Legend series you will definitely like the Divergent series.
Absolutely! I read this and it's sequel within a couple of days, it had me absolutely hooked - can't wait for the third one!!
Definitely Chaol - I won't give away any spoilers by explaining why
If you like this one and it's follow up I would suggest listening to Samantha Shannon's 'The Bone Season'.
