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.

The reader was ok for the material she had
Very immature book. The characters reactions were completely unbelievable. I have teenagers, and the characters behaviors made this book very not fun. I gave up half way and just read the summaries and don't feel like I missed anything. The characters were stupid. They reacted stupidly. They acted stupidly. A dumb teenager book written for teenagers.
This book was emotionally frustrating because of the story line. It's very back and forth. And toys with your emotions. But it's still a great book.
She does a great job in expressing Tris. She's a great narrator!
The Divergent series is a wonderful trio to read. They are incredibly entertaining and heart wrenching at times. But very much worth the read!
Her voice was to high pitched and girly. She made the book seem like a lark even in the most serious scenes.
No, I had to force myself to listen to it.
This series seemed to start off well enough. While, I didn't much care for the first one, I read the second hoping it would get better. It did not, it got worse. The stories pace is so slow it would have put me to sleep if the narrator's voice wasn't so piercing and annoying.
Boring. Took off too slowly. Fell in love with the first book but tried reading and listening to the second and couldn't get into it
Eh childish empty
I didn't make it through very far to find many
Moves far too slow!
As one reviewer said "I want to tell her to get over it all. Her guilt, her self-doubt, her lack of self-esteem...she seems to go on and on. And I find it difficult to determine whether Tris is talking or thinking to herself due to the narration." I totally agree with that statement. I found it to be almost painful!!!
There was too much Tris and not enough of Four!!
Yes, it showed how important it is to guard our freedom!!
I have recommended the book to my friends and sister because I think the evolution of the story is just breath taking. Every time I listen to it I'm in another world living at Trice's place.
There's many memorable moments in this book but (without giving away to much) I'd say that the execution is my favorite one.
I've listen only at Divergent from Emma Galvin's other performances and this one is pretty close since it's the second book of the trilogy but I feel like this one is deeper and it gave chills.
I listened to the Divergent series about a year ago, and remembered the second one being not as good as the first, and third one being downright awful. Having recently seen the Divergent movie, I tried relistening to the second book. I had to stop halfway through. The narration is pretty hard to listen to (after mostly listening to Barbara Rosenblat and Steven Briggs). I think a lot of the appeal the first time through came from wanting to know what happens next; once you know, it's a lot harder to put up with. I'll definitely go see the movie, but I think I'd have to be pretty desperate to listen to the rest of the novel again.
I would definitely recommend this book to a friend. This book ended in a way that I did not expect. I am so excited for the next book,
It was worse than Divergent. I wasn't real impressed with the first book in the series but I muddled through it and decided to find out what happened next. I'm sorry I wasted my credit.
The story itself has great potential. The characters, however, are self-absorbed, petty, and uninteresting. I stopped listening and just asked one of my friends to give me a synopsis of the overall story.
I felt irritated with the characters as well as the narrator.
