He said, she said over and over again, please veronica think of something else to say instead! I have never heard these words repeated so often in a audio book.
Most interesting was 4's relationship with his family.
While I enjoyed the first book in this series, based on this book, I will not finish the trilogy. It lacked so much that the first book had. I didn't care for any of the characters, didn't feel for any of them and I couldn't have cared if they lived or died. Frankly I don't remember who is doing what and where or with who because I just stopped caring. Perhaps a second listen could convince me otherwise but I doubt that I'll bother.
"Only read if you can take it."
I thought Emma Galvin did a wonderful job reading so I'd definitely try her work again. As for Veronica Roth, I'd probably tread carefully from now on.
It was simply too brutal for me. I thought the first book was interesting, the characters well rounded, but eventually it became the book equivalent of an ego shooter game for me. It turned so bleak that I simply couldn't stick with it anymore.
No, this was my first.
Well it has a follow up book. I read a plot summary and decided to stop listening immediately when I did. There is only so much bleakness I find enjoyable.
This is a well written book. If unhappy situations don't put you off then I'm sure you'll enjoy it. I'm too sensitive though and if you're a parent reading this, I'd certainly think twice before letting my child enjoy this.
"Absorbing dystopian fiction"
Beatrice's world is convincing and intriguing, and I enjoyed the way the story progressed, revealing more about the factions and their relationships as the book goes on.
The initiation process Beatrice goes through to join her chosen faction.
It'd have to be Beatrice, as it's told in the first person we get to know her pretty well!
I believe the film is already in production, but something like:
'In a world where your choices are made for you, one girl will learn to think for herself...'
The reader is very good, I find female narrators a little shrill sometimes, but Emma Gavin has an expressive and pleasant voice, and she convinced as Beatrice. If you enjoyed the Hunger Games, then this book shares much of its tone and themes, I recommend it!
"Ok, but not a great YA novel, bit formulaic"
A good light read, nothing too Earth shattering, with ok writing. Not as well written as The Hunger Games, not as amazing as The Knife of Never Letting Go, or as harrowing as The Way I Live Now. There are many other much better written YA books out there, but this is still fine, and well read.
"Where is this story going?"
im not sure the author actually knew where she was going with the plot of this book. It took forever to reveal the secret that marcus was keeping, and even then it really wasnt clear. Why does Tris keep making promises she doesnt intend to keep? it just doesnt make any sense why four is with her!
i loved Divergent, friends recommended i didnt bother with allegient - i read he synopsis on wkipedia, the plot goes crazy.
love her as the voice of Tris, she has a very natural - teen sound.
yes if you want to know the big secret
didnt bother with allegient - it just seemed to get weirder
The reader's voice is very soothing and perfect for the role of Tris. The entire trilogy was brilliant because of her voice.
Hunger games trilogy. The plots are very similar
No. I believe this was the first
"A very good follow on book"
It is not a top ranking book but a good book to fill time when doing boring tasks, not one i would just stop everything to listen to.
I enjoyed the first and now the second book, if you like the rise and fight back of the down trodden then you will enjoy this, also has a few good twists like the first book. Will definitely get the third book.
"Captivating and exciting, well read"
The story is really interesting and very easy to follow in audio form. The characters are built up brilliantly and there is always something to make you want to listen further. The author doesn't hold any punches, and there are a lot of twists and turns in the plot. The main character is interesting and seems invincible! There were lots of ahh moments for the romance, and lots of oo! moments for the exciting bits and awwwww! moments for the sad bits. Even a tear or two was shed!
It's as exciting as the series by Rodererick Brown called Tunnels. It's at that level, some love interest, some excitement and pretty gritty with slight gory descriptions.
No, haven't listened to any others, but she is excellent. Her performance is outstanding and expressive at the right time. I had to return a book previously because the narrator was so awful, but Emma Gavin does not disappoint.
I think the moments that her parents were killed were really heart breaking. And also the point where Tobias was pointing a gun at Tris in the control room. Very gripping.
Have downloaded the other two, can't wait to listen to them!
"Very good listen, well performed, interesting idea"
Similar to Hunger games in some ways but a nice idea and really well read and exciting. Want to take the kids to see the movie now. Will definitely download the sequels
