I loved the first book. But the second book was even better. It is amazing to see how they use our modern medical devices in the future just to see how progressive their scientist are. What Beatrice had to go through in this book because she is divergent is amazing. That a girl of 16 would give her group or "sanction" help by giving herself up to be studied by their scientist to figure out why she fits into 3 sanctions. And how Four tries to help her and loves her but treats her with respect and teaches her about the different sanctions and their societies. Great story! Very engaging and riviting . Great writing. Enjoyed every page!
Loved Emma Gavin in Insurgent and Divergent. She has the right age voice for the part! And of course, the book is great! Loved it!
Never knowing what was coming next.
Tobias, Sounds like a stand up guy.
She got into character with Tris.
Very shocked at the end.
Can't wait for the 3rd!
Definitely... why is the 3rd out already?!
When Tryst got a calming shot that made her go silly. She is a young girl and if there is one recommendation, let her be a young lady once and a while.
Four... he has a lot of baggage and somehow logic and reason doesn't get over elusive
Only that i wish the 3rd book was released already.
As soon as I finished Divergent, I was straight onto Insurgent. It is predictable as others have said and you do get over the romance scenes. However, it is still awesome and I’m counting down to the third. The only thing I didn’t see coming. Even though it was in the back of my mind was the betrayal of one of the characters and the shocking cliff-hanger. If you’re not already a divergent fan, now is the time to start! It’s a book for all ages. It’ll keep you on your toes every moment and keep you awake all night. It’s just go the entire time and just wicked! I’m counting down to the next release to see what happens next! I hope they don’t kill off any more of the good characters and that the pace and story is just as good as these two!
I ended this book ready to hurry up and listen to the third book. Unfortunately it is not due until October. I am anxious to find out what happens and who is E.P.
This book was surprisingly even better than the first of this series. I cannot wait for book 3! Highly recommended! Also I was impressed with the extremely smooth transition to this book from the end of book 1.

This book was just as good as the first book. In fact, I'd say it was even better because Tris was stronger, less winey. The storyline picked right up, no confusion.
This book is a good continuation of the series. My original fear in getting this book series was that it would be saturated with the "i'm in love and now not in love" feelings of a teenage girl, no offence I just can't stand that stuff. The book does a descent job of sticking to the story. While a descent book, it does not really leave me needing to rush to the next installment. I just can't see it advancing in a manner that will not become ridiculous.
I wouldn't have picked up this series had it not been for our 12 year old who highly recommended it. While definitely written for the 12 to 17 year old age group, it's a series which even adults will enjoy. The plot is easy to follow and engaging and held my interest. If I were to categorize it I would call it a Science Fiction Action book. Good listen for older kids and adults.
