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