I bought this book within minutes of finishing Divergent. It's suspenseful and thought provoking and really fun. It got love and loss and I can't wait for the next book!
It feels like she enjoyed reading it to me which makes it that much more enjoyable.
Very interesting. Writing-wise, it seemed to be jumping around a lot and was a bit harder to follow in the audio version than the first book, but the story is intriguing. And I still have some of the same problems with the characters that I had in the first book - they flip-flop a lot in their personalities and decisions. And the teen angst can be a bit over the top. But, that said, I can't wait to read/listen to the third book! Definitely a social commentary and I want to see which direction Roth heads with it after the big revelation cliffhanger.
It is a great series, if you liked the first one you’ll like this one. Fair warning there are a lot of parts where you may get mad at what is happening/decisions being made. There were tons of “what is she/he thinking” and “seriously” moments. When my sister was reading it she text me every time she got mad at one of the characters choices, I got lots of text.
Say something about yourself!
I love that this book picks up right where the first one stops, and i love that the author does not try to catch you up on the story, she writes as if they are the same book and writes assuming you read book one, so there is no retelling of anything. I LOVE THAT! She just picks up at the exact spot that book 1 ended and kept writing. I think this the first time I have ever read a book series that the author was not constantly having to keep explain something because it happened in the first book. This author is loyal to the people reading the book already and is writing for them, so she does not waste your time re-telling anything, she just keeps the story going. if you haven't noticed, i think this is really cool.
I love this story, there is no love triangle that seams to be typical in most young adult book series. The characters surprise you. And there not a lot of drama, but just a lot of action and story telling. This is a great series and I will read anything this writer puts out.
Even though I'm not YA, I thoroughly enjoyed Divergent and I also liked Insurgent. It seemed alittle harder for me to get into, but I love the characters from Book 1, so I stayed with it & got pulled in once again. Can't wait for Book 3!
Intelligent, Exciting, Enthralling
Two moments I think caught me, the first was when her friend Al helped the other kids almost kill Tris. The second was finding out Tris's mother and father were also transfers. Especially that her mother was Dauntless and if I remember correctly Divergent too!
Two scenes a the very least, the first was when Tris's mother saves her but unfortunately dies doing so. The second was her rescue by Four and her brother Kalub.
I absolutely loved every part that Tris beat the serums and caused the scenarios to turn around in her favor. This causing the leader on the other side aggravation. And I love the fact that Tris and Four finally got together as a couple!
Someone needs to tell the author to hurry up with the next book!
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.
