I was once again taken back by another great book by Veronica Roth! It started right where Divergent left off. I was hanging on the edge of my seat the whole time.
Emma Galvin did a wonderful job with her performance. She brings out the characters in a way that just reading the book couldn't do.

Insurgent is a good follow up to Divergent that doesn't suffer from the traditional "middle-book-in-a-trilogy" blues. Grab it immediately if you listened to Divergent!
I literally have no words to describe how amazing this series is... I love where Insurgent is going and can't wait to see how the series will ends!
And the icing on the cake is Emma Galvin. She is a perfect fit and I hope to hear more of her narrations.

I absolutely loved it! I finished it in 3 days. I think Emma Galvin is a fantastic reader and she makes it very worthwhile. I can't wait for the next book! Veronica Roth is definitely a gifted writer!
Buy this book you won't regret it!
Insurgent is an excellent follow-up to Divergent (you have to read Divergent first). I was concerned that this second book wouldn't have the power of Divergent but I think it has more drama and action than the first book. I'm a big fan of the main character, Tris, who struggles with trauma, love, and guilt but still is the brave, resilient hero of the story. I can't wait for the next book.
I love all kinds of books but don't really read them anymore I would rather listen to them but I will still buy the book if I love it enough to collect it.
Another good book cant wait for the final book of the series to come out to see what happens with Tris and Four I hope all ends well.
Love this site! I have a very busy job, so listening to audio books enables me to keep up on great stories!
Super crazy awesome.
Come on really? Tris is obviously fantastic. Wonderfully flawed, and it's really interesting to see her evolution between a "Stiff," and a hard core soldier. However, the supporting characters are all strong. Who doesn't love Four? I think the dynamic between Uriah, Marlene, and Lynn is great fun as well.
Everything. She's at the top of my list of favorite narrators. The voices are all very distinct and done well. No stupid accents like other narrators do.
No, I needed a break. It gets heavy and I took a break to listen to a comedy and came back refreshed. I did the same thing when I read the book.
Veronica Roth hit a serious home run with this series and I can't wait for book 3!
I have recommended it to several already!! It's a book that will keep you on the seat of your pants. Also- Who wouldn't cheer on Tris and Four as they try to uncover the mysteries that faction leaders are trying to hide from the people. It's jam packed full with action and great characters.
The Hunger Games series. They are both dystopian novels where good is trying to overcome evil. Both have great story lines and great characters.
My favorite scene was when Tris and Four escaped from the traitor Dauntless and Euridite after they have found help with the Amnity.
I was kept pretty much on the seat of my pants through the whole book, so it's hard to choose just one moment.

The narration was great! The action/adventure was great as well!
4 was my favorite even though he put up with the main characters stupidity. He was my favorite because I can relate to his strengths and weaknesses.
She has a wonderful voice!
Not moved, but hit hard when we find out a boy was a traitor all along.
This book was great and I can't wait for the next!!!
This book is a great continuation from Divergent. It's hard to say which one of these two novels I like the best. They both are so unbelievably gripping. Insurgent has all the powerful emotion that Divergent instills but it also has something else that was a bit lacking in the first novel. This novel gives a better understanding of all the factions in Veronica Roth's world. The first book mainly focusses on Dauntless and Abnegation, but now we get to learn more about Erudite, Cander, and Amity. I was glad this book explained all the factions with better clarity, because I wondered about the others when I read Divergent. The main character Tris, is one of the best characters in a YA novel I've come across, someone that I think is so real its a little scarry. And the love story between Tris and Tobias is moving. Veronica Roth has a gift and it shines. The only thing I didn't like about this book is the fact that I have to wait for the third book, because like Divergent I never wanted the story to end.
Emma Galvin has done such a fantastic job with both the Divergent novels, she makes both books an absolute delight. If you are a fan of Divergent then you will love Insurgent and if you haven't read Divergent yet, then what are you waiting for!
