One choice can transform you - or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves - and herself - while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.
Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable - and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.
New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second book of the dystopian Divergent series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature.

This second book of the Divergent series moved along and kept my attention.
The story is not complex, but you need to remember the intended teenage audience.
I'm looking forward to "reading" the next/lasr installment.
I find the performance too flat. it's hard not to tune it out sometimes.
As for the text, I did not enjoy the first book at all and barely finished it. I'm not sure why I chose to start the second considering that but I'm glad I did. it's much better. Still not great, but hopeful for the third.
Emma Galvin really made the characters come to life for me.
This was my first audio book experience. I really enjoyed listening while I commuted to work and traveled. I will be listening to more audiobooks in the future.
The book was written in a way that captured my attention to keep listening. I would find myself at my destination, not wanting to stop listening because I wanted to hear what happened next.
I have already purchased the next in this series.
Anything not written by Veronica Roth
Her performance was limited by the material.
I would not have published any of it.
The plot is not believable. I realize it was supposed to be fictional, but there is a limit to what is believable even in fiction.
I commute for 4 hours a day 5 days a week via train, yet I am not a train employee...perhaps I should be.
As a male reader. This book is good but fraught with too much emotional inflection. At times I wanted to tell the antagonist to stop being a pathetic teenage girl and get the job done, but she is a pathetic teenage girl. So I suppose the role is played true.
