It's a good story, with complex characters that don't always act the way in which they "should" but act in ways that fit them. The narration is really good; the lead character's voice fits, and the others are distinctive.
It's a good action story, with some twists and turns.
There's a good pacing to her reading and she brings excitement, fear, pathos.
The book made me want to listen so much that I bought the readable version as well.
I'm the author of the book "Bronx DA" and an attorney.
This is a terrific second of three books in a series. Unlike many series books where the follow-ups don't live up to the original, Insurgent sustains a great, fast moving story. Roth really knows how to build tension and get you invested in the characters, whether you love or hate them.
The fear landscape
Galvin does a fantastic job with the main character/narrator, Tris, but she's also very successful at doing other character voices. I especially like that she's able to do voices for different genders without sounding corny!
This is definitely a high intensity, high energy book. It's not a big laugh or cry book, but it definitely makes you want to bang on your steering wheel and yell at the characters, "What are you doing!"
Great book - already started "Allegiant" and I'm excited to learn what happens to these characters and what the big secret is!
Insurgent is only the 3rd audiobook I've ever listened to; LOVE this series. I am totally taken in. This is on pair w hunger games and I'm so glad I only have to wait a few days for #3 :)
Emma Galvin IS tris; so convincing and when the movies come out I'll have a hard time putting the new voice to the character :)
If I'd had 11.5 hours to sit and listen this would be the series :)
A teenage guy who loves listening and doesn't mind reading books :)
Oh yes! Simply because it is the best buy I have ever made on Audible! The story was great, the characters were great, and the reader was great!
Definitely Tobias (Four). He is the guy every man wishes he could be! Strong, courageous, and hansom!
Yes, I've listened to Divergent. This one was better. Though not by a whole lot
Definitely the Cliffhanger ending! Not gunna give any spoilers, but WOW!!!!!!
Can't wait for the third book (Allegiant).
I love Audible!
I enjoyed this sequel but I took a break listening in the middle. The ending of this book is fantastic, and I enjoyed learning more about Trice's world.
A dreamer who loves the adventures hidden in every story!!
This is a collective review of Divergent and Insurgent. I really enjoyed listening/reading to these books. They remind me of hunger games, with the exception of not being that intense. The story and plot is interesting and some of the twists (one in particular) I didn't expect. I like the fact that the love story though prominent doesn't take over the story, it helps the plot move forward without making you want to gag! I am not sure if I will ever re-read these again, however they are an entertaining read!
I just graduated Nursing school and now have time to read more. Any recommendations would be great.
I loved this book. The whole series so far is awesome. I can't wait until allegiant comes out.
Tobias because he is mysterious
Listen to all kinds, but mostly enjoy witty light-hearted entertaining reads. Stay away from romance novels & books with heavy violence.
Good entertaining read and enjoyed it all the way through. I plan to pre-order Book 3 because I am enjoying the series so much. Highly recommend for anyone who likes entertaining books with only mild violence (it does have some violence but no graphic details), a little romance (mostly just the occasional kiss), and a good story line. I would rate it PG-13 and did not have any issues listening to it with my young daughters in the car, only turning it down low occasionally. Only gave it 4 stars because I reserve 5 stars for those books that I could listen to over and over again.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Continues on right from where it left off, so must read in order. But I wish I would have waited until all of the books were out. I have forgotten some of the events that happened since the last book and it has been months since I read it. I will be getting the next one as soon as it comes out so I can continue the adventure. I had a hard time with Tris dealing with her guilt and shame. I know it is just me but I don't like to read about when people are on the verge of suicide by craziness. She finally pulled her head out of her %#@ at the last minute. I wasn't sure if Tris and Four/Tobias's relationship was going to make it, there was some rocky roads. But overall a good book and the narrator was excellent.
