    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I have wanted to read this for years and was looking forward to listening. I feel like an idiot for not noticing it isn't in translation and gutted because the narrator has such a beautiful voice. I can't return it so I suppose I'm going to have to learn Spanish.

    What if your whole world was a lie? What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything? What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected? The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of listeners in Divergent and Insurgent.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Veronica Roth and/or Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford ?

    possibly


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the attempt to deal with big, and actually very relevant themes of biological determinism, freewill, etc. I thought it was far more optimistic that The Hunger Games, the obvious comparison.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration matched only too well. It was like felt like riding around in a truck filled with surly teens for hours.


    Any additional comments?

    The adolescent sarcasm wore very thin and became irritating after awhile as did the all the scenes in which Tobias and Tris making out by stroking each other's backs (???). Maybe better to skip the adolescent sex scenes all together.
