    Look, maybe you're a nice girl, but we're guessing you're more like us or you probably wouldn't have downloaded this audiobook. But being nice is just not the way to get what you want. And this audiobook is about getting what you want. Not in a finding happiness, giving back to the world, being grateful for what you have sort of way. But in a ruling your world, being the most desired, powerful badass in the room way, so you can come out on top of any situation: guys, career, friends, enemies, whatever.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Was not a fan of the narrator. She sounded bland and sarcastic all the time even when sarcasm was not what the reader was going for.

    Great Read but only for certain people. If you get offended easily DO NOT READ THIS BOOK!

    Picking up where Beautiful Bastard left off, Chloe Mills and Bennett Ryan continue their steamy, combative relationship. Just when Chloe’s career starts to take off, Bennett wishes it would all slow down long enough to spend a wild night alone with his girlfriend. But after he refuses to take no for an answer, Chloe and Bennett find themselves with two plane tickets, one French Villa, and a surprising conversation that, predictably, leaves them wrestling under the covers.

    What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic's wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic's highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country's most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem. From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths - until the day June's brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Legend to be better than the print version?

    Heck yes! The audible version brings the book to life while still maintaining its ability to allow the listener to create the characters and world in their imagination.


    What other book might you compare Legend to and why?

    Divergent. The Testing.


    What about Mariel Stern and Steven Kaplan ’s performance did you like?

    They really changed there tone as the characters changed, they didn't just maintain the same tone as the start.


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

    When family members were lost and when Day and June grew closer.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator. Completely took away from the story.
    As for the actual storyline I would have made the travel sequences more exciting. I zoned out during the time the traveled because well, it just wasn't that exciting.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The way their society works.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She talked way to slow. Made the characters sound slow or stupid even. Couldn't stand her. I will be forced to read the next book myself if the use the same narrator for the sequel. Absolutely awful.


    Do you think The Testing needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    YES! We need to know how she lives with the knowledge that she learns from the device she got from her brother that she recorded info into before her memory got wiped. I know there is a follow-up book coming out in January and can't wait!


    Any additional comments?

    Good book, not my favorite but worth the read.

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

    Top 5


    What other book might you compare Insurgent to and why?


    The Legend Series. Similar series because it is dystopian environment and a young girl is already in the collegiate environment after taking her test at 10 years old. Her path crosses with Day a young criminal of the Republic. The story takes off from there it’s also amazing.


    Which character – as performed by Emma Galvin – was your favorite?

    I loved Tobias because he felt broken, but he pushed forward in an attempt to fell whole again with Tris.

    I also understand that obsessive need to understand yourself which he displays in this book.

    Listen to it, read it, you would regret it.

    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.

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

    Thrilling. Heartbreaking. Amazing.


    What other book might you compare Allegiant to and why?

    The Testing, similar to Allegiant in the sense that it is dystopian environment and a young girl must go through a testing to proceed through to College level.

    The Legend Series. Similar series because it is dystopian environment and a young girl is already in the collegiate environment after taking her test at 10 years old. Her path crosses with Day a young criminal of the Republic. The story takes off from there it’s also amazing.


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

    Amazing performance much better than a few other YA books I've listened too. I really appreciate the heart they put into it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES! I think almost did.

    So sad its over but happy it happened! READ THIS SERIES!!

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
