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.
I have 3 kids that occupy all the TV's in the house...enough said...addicted to audiobook ....shhhh don't tell my husband ;-)
I can't believe the story even gets better, if you thought Divergent was a "page turner" this one sets the book on fire! I pretty much ignored anyone talking to me while I was listening, I was completely riveted and it ends on a huge cliff hanger. I can't believe I have to wait three months for the last book to come out ugh! Have to give an awesome job shout out to Emma Galvin the narration was stellar!
Have read Divergent and preferred the first in the trilogy.
Yes, I believe the first in the series is in production.
I didn't enjoy as much as Divergent, but now I have read both, will look forward the next release.
Yet again I was sucked into the world of the Divergent!! This book was as good as the first one! It pains me to know that I will have to wait for the 3rd one to come out!! I need instant gratification when I'm into a great series!! Divergent didn't disappoint me and neither did Insurgent! My husband hates books like these but he's read BOTH of them and loved them! This is one of those books you can pick up in a year or two and read again! I HIGHLY recommend this book.
If you love something ... Set it free. If it was real ... It will return to thee!
Insurgent begins where Divergent ends, so as you may have already guessed - YOU MUST READ THE FIRST ONE 'FIRST'. Don't hope to understand where the paths lead by jumping into book 2. In Book 2, the relationships are tested and many threats and events challenge Tris Prior, making her a much stronger person as she makes the right choices.
From the simulation of Maylene to the escape of Tris and Four from the Erudite Compound, this book will keep you glued until the very last page, where Roth will abruptly end, leaving you frustated and breathlessly waiting impatiently for the next and final installment to arrive next year. Some would expect a sophomore slump for this installment, and I can say it right now, it improves much better than the last book with better character development and higher vocabulary uses. Veronica Roth is king (or to some 'queen) and knows how to keep the suspense and mystery balanced without overdoing it. And yes, there are many Tris and Four moments here. ;)
This suspense-filled novel will not disappoint "Divergent" fans, with enough suspense to keep them awake all night, with adrenaline pumping throughout their body while awaiting on the next move our characters are about to make.
Ms. Roth's style leaves the reader hanging in eagerness to figure where in the hell you are.
While you are reading, you are not sure if this is an uprising, government oppression, or what (remember the Hunger Games? Same idea). I just know that I love Tobias and Tris and how they do not assimilate into what is considered the norm. They think outside the box, which sadly the majority of people today are perfectly happy being cattle and told where and how to think.
Ms. Roth does hint throughout the book at the big "secret" that Marcus isn't willing to give out because he doesn't believe people are able to handle the truth. The foreshadowing employed and mentions of the societies being "inside the fence" did lead me to a conclusion. Although the secret doesn't come as a big shock to the reader, it is more in credence to the foreshadowing than it being a predictable outcome. The book ends with this revelation and all you can do is scream NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
On a scale of 1-10 ... I'll give it a 13!
Very near the top!
Yes. The humor is perfect.
Absolutely loved this. Couldnt stop listening!
