This book didn't live up to the first but still had plenty of twists and turns to keep me interested. Had I not been listening to it there would likely have sections that I would have skim read over, but I doubt I would have given up completely. Tris' lack of self-belief and overall self-loathing was irritating. I wanted her to be strong, especially as there were people who needed her to be. If this had been book one, I wouldn't have picked up the second but seeing as I powered through, the cliff-hanger did convince me to finish the trilogy.
