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.

I truly enjoy the narrator In this performance. She is very calm and easy to understand. Unlike the first book, I find this book difficult to follow the storyline at times and having to rewind and listen again.
Strong characters in all genres. and narrators who don't ham it up.
I saw the first movie, and the family asked for the audiobook. The plot has some interesting twists, too bad that those twists and turns don't happen in a believable world. It's not so much that the simulation drugs are beyond believable, I can "suspend belief" for more far-fetched concepts, but the whole world of the story lacks substance and the basics of civilization, while still pretending that some civilization exists. No one actually picks up trash, or cans food, or runs powerplants. That is all some distopian fantasy with a given invisible infrastructure, that wont actually work for the factions described. I can pass over the teenage raging hormones is the middle of battle, But the heroine's giving in to her inherent weakness compared to all the males around her, just seem to be the finishing blow. She spends too much time feeling the victim, for me to enjoy the story. I'll be interested in the conclusion enough to see the last movie, but the book/audiobook isnt really worth my time.
