This series is incredible and I cannot wait for the next book. The narrator does a great job which just ups the creep factor.
Way to leave us hanging Barry. Thanks. Thanks a lot.
I love Emma Galvin and the narrator who read Tobias did a wonderful job.
BUT I think Veronica Roth severely missed the mark on this one. I love Divergent, love it so incredibly much, I even really liked Insurgent although it was not as good IMO. I EVEN liked the plot line for Allegiant, but the whole thing just felt off.
I'm still thinking about how sad I am. I am sad because the series is over and I am sad because I feel let down. I feel so disconnected from the characters and until the final scenes lost my love for Tobias. I am so lost now.
I really disliked the last book in this series but felt the need to finish it out after committing so much of my time to it. The narrator did a great job but I just did not like this book. This whole series has gone down hill and I expected a huge blow-out of a final book. I am left greatly disappointed and unsatisfied.
I loved the first book in this series and while this book started off a tad slow I enjoyed it immensely. I am NOT a fan of historical fiction but there is something about these books that grabbed me. The narrator did a wonderful job and I can't wait to listen to the next book. P.S. I love Beast.
Oh my. I can't believe it.
Let me start off by saying that I listened to this book. Thank God for Dan Bittner (honey read me the phone book any time).
The prologue made me simply uncomfortable. It was awkward and unrelatable.
Here's the thing, I LOVED Travis in Beautiful Disaster. Loved him. I loved his passion and his need for Abby, but I couldn't stand him in this book. He started off as in BD a womanizer, a ladies man but I never thought that hearing his thoughts would be so revolting. When he finally came to terms with his love for Abby he became this whiney needy child, throwing tantrums and fits which didn't translate as being so childish in BD as it did in WD. Don't get me wrong, I love the way he loved her, I loved his passion and at times his need for her, but mostly I was annoyed. I was annoyed that Abby was a drug to him, love isn't about being enveloped by someone else, it's about sharing your lives, it's about loving the person you become when you're with the one you love.
Epilogue- hmph. I usually love when books tie up neatly, when you discover that yes they did live happily ever after, but this pair of books was about how two screwed up people can make something beautiful together, so I feel like knowing where they ended up years later wasn't something I needed. I like who they became, I just didn't feel like it added to the story.
Dan Bittner- I cried when Travis cried. I laughed when Travis laughed. Thank you for being the best part of this book.
I loved the characters, each had it's own accent, it's own story.
The story captured so much more than 1950's New Orleans. It captured a coming of age girl in a rough situation, it captured first loves and first pains.
The accents were beautifully done! I loved her interpretation of Willie and Jesse.
I really wanted to love this book, unfortunately I despised the main character. I loved the supporting characters though and I think that's what makes rating it/reviewing so very hard.
Everything was there, but I just couldn't like her. Perhaps that was the point, that we aren't supposed to like her, however it makes reading a book really difficult.
I had this on my to-be-read list for a while, not overly interested enough to read it but curious just the same. I believe I purchased the audiobook on sale which is why I finally got around to "reading" it. I wish I had done so sooner.
This book was brilliant, I could not stop listening. I was addicted. I needed to know, and you will too.
I loved every obstacle and hated them just the same.
Don't put this book off any longer.
First of all, Emma Galvin did a wonderful narration (as always).
This book was really hard on my heart, I had a hard time liking the main character at points but overall it was a very good book. It was insightful and broken. Tears are inevitable.
First off the score is now tied.
Next the audio, Emma Galvin does an absolutely amazing job with the narration of this book. When Tris was high I was laughing out loud. When Lynn thanks Tris I cried. Thank you to Emma Galvin for making this book her Frankenstein.
Finally, the book... Can I just say that Veronica Roth is brilliant? Although I had inklings of how the book was going to end I didn't believe my own thoughts. The relationship between Tris and Tobias was raw and real, not flowers and sparkles. The emotions that seep through the characters and let us into their hearts and minds was incredible. This book was absolutely amazing. I want to listen to it all over again right now.
Damn you Veronica Roth for forcing me to wait another year for the next installment.
Veronica Roth:2 Jess:1 - the score is no longer tied
