Publisher's Summary

One choice can transform you - or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves - and herself - while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable - and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second book of the dystopian Divergent series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature.

    Story
    "Great Addition to the First Book"
    Would you listen to Insurgent again? Why?

    Yes, I think it helped develop the world of Trice even further, and I'm fascinated by it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Christina, she is the only character that seems to be growing, learning and altering her behaviors based on her experiences. Some of the other characters tend to learn a lesson, then they can't believe it took them so long to learn it, and then five minutes later, they make the same mistakes again. This just isn't true to how people behave.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I love all the scenes where the thrill factor is the highest, I don't want to spoil the book!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really, there are highs and lows of course, but nothing seemed so extreme as to make me laugh or cry. Come to think of it, that probably means that when the characters in this book die, and I'm not sad about it, that the author may not have done a very good job at making the reader love her characters.


    Any additional comments?

    The fact the Trice and Tobias have to go through the same "trust me" lessons with each other, over and over again, and always seem to fight makes me frustrated with the characters. In addition, the moments where they make up with each other, there isn't much of a heart to heart, and the kissing that follows doesn't seem so passionately that you feel like either character should really be over their problems with each other. The constantly volatile mistrust between these characters grinds on you, and at this point, I'm not sure I'd even be sad if they broke up. They are young, and probably not the best couple given all the problems they are always having. That is sad, because the reader loves to fall in love with the love characters share, and in this book its just not here. The story is still fascinating though, and if you aren't seeking lovable characters and relationships, then it's perfect for you.

    "Pure Suspenseful Excellence!"
    What did you love best about Insurgent?

    I love the way the dramatic tension was kept up.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Insurgent?

    The ending included a game-changing revelation at just the right point.


    Which character – as performed by Emma Galvin – was your favorite?

    My sympathies were always with Tris, as no doubt the author intended.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    As I said before, the tension never really let up.


    Any additional comments?

    Rated PG-13 for violence and dystopian themes.

    Story
    "Not Dauntless - Dithering"

    Emma Galvin puts as much life possible into the story as she can. It is well read. The story, however, needs help. Tris is supposedly Dauntless or Divergent showing aptitude for three faction but I think there should be another faction of Ditherers. She could be their leader. I think I had my limit of indecision, crying, lying, and whining. I guess I will have to see why my 13 year old daughter likes this so much (though I do get a fair amount of crying out of her too).

    "TOUCHING AND WOULD LISTEN MANY TIMES"
    Would you listen to Insurgent again? Why?

    Yes, the words are the all meaningful and detailed where I can illustrate it in my head.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The words in the ending is the best!! Had it on repeat for 10x.


    What does Emma Galvin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Emma Galvin is great in providing the emotions and speech. She has a lovely voice. Perfect. Will definitely listen to her audible books


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending! Read it to the end. Don't skip.

    "Decent Story Line - Terrible Narration!"
    Would you be willing to try another one of Emma Galvin’s performances?

    I bought all three audible books after reading the reviews...wish I didn't! Although the story is decent, the narration is incredibly distracting! If you want to read this series, buy the books and read them yourself. Where was the director and why didn't they edit! Emma Galvin constantly raises the tone of her voice in the middle of a sentence so it sounds like a question, and pauses at inappropriate times. She may also need a grammar lesson, a comma means a short pause, not the end of a sentence!

    "Hooked by Divergent...disappointed by Insurgent"
    What disappointed you about Insurgent?

    The main character is strong/tough but cries constantly. The world she lives in is no picnic, but I was surprised at the frequency of her break downs.

    Her love interest is supposed to be a strong/tough/brute guy. She betrays him over and over, by her words and actions, yet it just seems to roll off his back. A man like that would have a much stronger reaction to her first betrayal and wouldn't be with her after the second!

    Listen mostly to urban fantasy and suspense/thrillers but also enjoy mysteries, sci-fi, fantasy, romance, adventure, classic, modern, spiritual or general literature. And I always like a bit of romance in any of my stories.

    Story
    "Maybe it's just me"

    but I can't seem to believe the world Ms Roth has created. It constantly feels more like the world a 16 year old would imagine than a world that could actually exist. I kept trying to set that aside. It was easier to do in the first book which focused on the initiates, their training and the outbreak of war. Even then I couldn't help thinking that in a world that was being described war was a long time coming. This book focuses more on the factions. I can buy that these sorts of factions would exist within a larger society. But describe a world where the vast majority not only belong to one of them but even have a proclivity to a certain one and they no longer seem like people. It also doesn't help that Tris continually acts like a 16 year old and none of the adults around her point out to her the flaws in her logic or even tell her she's acting like a child. It's like the whole world is populated with adults no more mature than a 16 year old. The politics and the situations end up feeling far too contrived. This is far from the worst young adult fiction I've listened to but it doesn't rank with the best. But like I said, maybe it's just me.

    "It is a good story."
    What made the experience of listening to Insurgent the most enjoyable?

    Characters are developed well, author explores them well and their relationships.


    Any additional comments?

    It is predictable and very hunger games. The Hunger games is a better story, it was almost a copy cat.

    "Couldn't put it down"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Insurgent to be better than the print version?

    This was an excellent story. Although fiction, the story seems plausible to me.


    What about Emma Galvin’s performance did you like?

    Emma Galvin's reading made the book come alive.
