I would give divergent 4 plus almost 5 and this 4 minus. Same characters, but Tris becomes a bit overly insecure. I wanted to yell get over it. I was was thinking I might not want to get the 3rd when it comes out, but by last 1/3 story itself got so good, I got rehooked.
Within minutes of finishing the first book, I was listening to this one. Great author, great narrorator, great story, great sequell. I'm always afraid of sequells because they usually don't live up to the orginal, but this one was equally entertaining. My only complaint is the fact that I have to wait so long for the next book.
I don't think it should be made into a movie.
This book was entertaining. I think the author has some maturing to do with writing technic and character development. Interesting story I just hope it goes somewhere deeper in the third book.
I listened to Divergent, and immediately after finishing it I started Insurgent. It starts off right where Divergent left off, and goes full speed the entire book. Tris and Four are great characters, and I enjoyed their high stress relationship. My only complaint is that it ended, and I still have questions. I want more.
When you wake up wondering what will happen next in the book you are listening too, you know it is a good one.
This one is a great listen.
Similar to THG in that it's a dystopian novel, but a totally different story.
Love an interesting plot with a strong female protagonist who yes, may have a love interest, but isn't defined by him.
(and it's YA fiction, but don't let that stop you!)
I often wait until the series is finished before I begin a trilogy. I hate having to wait for the next book. This series gets more intersting as it develops in this, the second book. The storyline matures and the dystopian theme expands beyond teenagers into a battle within different factions of a society and the interdependence among them. The stage is well set for an exploration of the meaning and construction of society in the next book. The narration was excellent. The teeage tone brought more out of the story than I would have embellished in my own imagination. I wish I didn't have to wait...
A fast listen as I couldn't put this audio book down until I had finished it. Fantastic. I can't wait till the next book.
The first book in this series was so exciting, but this one seemed to drag along. It repeated the same stories over and over again and didn't grab my attention in the same way that the first book did.
Yes, but her narration was better in Divergent. The characters were much more distinct.
It was an okay listen.
the writing style, the narrator, the author did a fantastic job of making a kick ass chick and yet still believable! this was a fantastic book!
My favorite character is a toss up between the main character Tris and Four.
they are amazing characters.
Her voice is PERFECT! she is great at making every character sound different and yet not cheesy. she brings life to the book and makes you fall in love with it.
