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.

i liked the story line of the movie better. it seemed to flow more. it hit on all the important parts without changing it too much. the back amd forth with tris and tabias got kind of annoying after awhile. but I did enjoy it.
the author has such strong emotions you can tell that she's been through it already. amazing amazing amazing.
I love Emma Galvin in this she narrates so well. the story is good though the ending I found predictable. I guessed it was something like the end of maze runner. otherwise I hope to read or listen to the next one soon! definitely left me wanting more but in a good way.
I. loved the narration on this book. It was both similar to what I had pictured in my head and also similar to what I remember from the voice of Tris from the first movie.
The storyline is compelling and the tension is exquisitely developed. I feel that even if I hasn't read the first book, this could have stood alone rather than as a sequel as just enough details from the backstory are given. All in all it was an excellent read.
I think this is the best thing I have ever read I love it. It is one of the very few books that doesn't have a love triangle in it but is way better then any book that does it is amazing I love this book so much.❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️😻😻😸😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘😘💛💙💜💚❤️💗💓💕💖💞💘💛💙💜💚❤️💗💓💕💖💞💘💛💙💜💚❤️💗💓💕💖💞💘💛💛💛💙💙💙
Good story! But this download from Audible is missing the end of the book. Will contact Audibile about this issue.
The performance was just as good as the first book. But the story was so much better and this one than the first one. Makes me look forward to reading the third book.
"An amazing sequel!"
INSURGENT LIVED UP TO MY EVERY HOPE!
The dystopia in which Tris lives becomes even more vivid in Insurgent. The politics and power-struggles are more fierce, the themes of control and rebellion are more poignant. I loved the direction that this book took.
Tris and Four's relationship hit some speed--bumps in this book, which is common in sequels. However, I'm glad that this remained a background conflict. Both Divergent and Insurgent keep the love interest as a pleasant aside, instead of making it the heart and soul of the story.
I particularly loved the exploration of each faction in this book. While we saw a lot of the Abnegation and Dauntless factions in the first book, there were more situations involving Amity, Erudite and also The Factionless in Insurgent. I also really enjoyed how much more we learned about Tobias/Four's family.
In my opinion, the book had only two teeny-tiny little drawbacks. Nothing so big that I'm going to give this any less than five stars! The first was that Tris kept shutting Tobias out. I always find it irksome in books when characters don;t just talk about things which are blatantly going to cause trouble. Still, it did up the conflict. The second thing was something which always annoys me about sequels...
You know when you watch a TV show which ends on a big cliffhanger and then you have to wait a week for the second part? Well, before part two airs there's always a catch up, right? A quick 'n' dirty thirty-second recap which just refreshes the ol' noggin. Well, the older I get and the more books I read, the more I think all series books should have a paragraph or two at the start which reminds people like me what the hell is going on! Like I said, I'm not gonna take a star off because I get confused easily! He he.
All in all, this rocked. I can't wait for book three to come out. The ending of this book promises BIG things and it's going to be an agonising wait!
"Another strong dystopian piece from Veronica Roth"
Like the first book in this trilogy, Divergent, i love Insurgent and have it in Paperback, Kindle e-book & Audible audiobook.
Insurgent starts where Divergent finished and in this installment the dystopian world is thrown into chaos.
With fierce political and power struggles, the sub themes of political control and social rebellion are even more enhanced.
In this book the reader/listener gets to discover and experience more about each faction and the factionless.
Remaining questions for Divergent are answered while new ones are created, some of which are answered before the book ends and some are not, leaving you wanting more.
The return of Emma Galvin as narrator is very welcome, she does a brilliant job.
I cannot wait for the third and final book in this awesome trilogy.
"Good series !"
I really liked this series and am especially looking forward to the next instalment however I don't think( as many of the marketing campaigns would suggest) it is on a level with the hunger games. It seems to draw on many of the hunger games themes and ideas ( different segments of the city etc) which is annoyingly repetitive.
The novel pretty much starts off where the first one ended, making it a bit difficult to follow with out a bit of divergent catchup. However once properly settled the plot really takes off and I found it difficult to put down!
Be warned the ending is a cliff hanger, not a brutal one but one never the less, so anyone looking for closure might be better off elsewhere!
Overall highly recommended!:)
Not quite as good as the first book but definately still an enjoyable listen and am now just waiting for the final installment.
