The narrator was mono-toned and the story was boring. The characters change names and come to crazy conclusions.
The dialog goes in circles to where five minutes are the same two people saying the same thing over and over again. Like this:
"I need to know.
But you already know.
I don't understand
Yes, you do.
Can you just tell me?
I don't need to."
The bad guy was who I thought it was just because they put a lot of random facts about him without him being part of the story.
Less dialog that went in circles.
None. I think the characters did what they were supposed to.
No. I was so-so on the first two books and this one just killed any hopes of a good or even mediocre ending.
No I will try again.
The narration was good.
No, the first one is being made into a movie and I most likely will not be seeing it.
There are many things about this book that are just bad.
1) The narrator seems to be on a speaker phone held up to a microphone.
2) The main character of the book blacked out a few times to wake up in a safe and other people fill him in on what happened. Once he was in the office of the main bad guy and passed out only to wake up in the hospital because he was rescued without the bad guy knowing.
Pretty much all of it.
The way it was recorded. I could hear papers or other background noise.
I prefer audio book because I don't have time to read.
I'm going to try the second book
I was in the middle of the road the whole time. I think Beatrice / Trice was too. Horrible things happen in front of her but does not show much emotion, even when she is shot.
One thing I don't understand is why being Divergent has a bad stigma in the book. Everyone who finds out shes Divergent tell her not to let anyone know because its dangerous and other Divergent people have disappeared. Why? It's never explained why Divergent people are so special. They can tell when they are in a simulation but that's only dangerous to the secret bad guys. No one should care but them.
This book was just random. It's like going to a Old Folks Home and listening to the rants of a half crazy veteran. There seems to be no point to the book and I was nodding off every time I pressed play.
No point, while it had science fiction points, it wasn't what I would call science fiction.
A better story. Some how the majority of the population is poor but game money can be used to buy real products. The game they describe in the book is cool but they charge for random things and they are fighting so the rates don't go up. Also the death of their friends and family don't seem to phase the characters. There is so much advanced technology and still there is mass poverty. It just doesn't make sense.
The villain is a corporation wants to make money.
He was okay.
This story(ies) had no real point that I could find. With in this audiobook is at least 4 different stories. Some come together near the end while others never fit into the story line. Also the narrator off on the the way the story described how the characters of speaking. He would bellow out a line then follow it with a
Simplify the story. This one book could have been better if he took the time to explain each story. Maybe have written a whole series of book instead of cramming it into one.
I might listen to one of John's performances.
I couldn't wait for this story to be over. It was slow and was 90% talking, 5% lets run away from these aliens, and 5% more made up simple politics.
Had some interesting parts but jumped around a lot. Not one person except for the aliens lasted more than a few chapters. Not because of action or battles but because massive amount of time has past.
