I stopped reading the series because of the lazy writing in this book. Insurgent leans hard of interpersonal conflict between two character who have now spent more time fighting and hating each other than developing a bond worth the audience's emotional investment. Writing distrust between characters is fine, but when it becomes a common occurrence, especially in a book targeted to young adults, it implies that this is an interesting, if not desirable, aspect of adult relationships. It is not. And its not interesting to read over and over, either.
Emma Galvin has a very young gritty voice, which is great for Triss, but not so great for the voice of the adult male characters.
Insurgent definitely lived up to the height that I was expecting! Insurgent had a great story line which was confusing yet great. I will soon be reading Allegiant and I'm excited to see where Allegiant begins off of this book! 5 stars!
i liked the story line of the movie better. it seemed to flow more. it hit on all the important parts without changing it too much. the back amd forth with tris and tabias got kind of annoying after awhile. but I did enjoy it.
the author has such strong emotions you can tell that she's been through it already. amazing amazing amazing.
I love Emma Galvin in this she narrates so well. the story is good though the ending I found predictable. I guessed it was something like the end of maze runner. otherwise I hope to read or listen to the next one soon! definitely left me wanting more but in a good way.
I. loved the narration on this book. It was both similar to what I had pictured in my head and also similar to what I remember from the voice of Tris from the first movie.
The storyline is compelling and the tension is exquisitely developed. I feel that even if I hasn't read the first book, this could have stood alone rather than as a sequel as just enough details from the backstory are given. All in all it was an excellent read.
