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.

The book has strong characters and keeps you engaged. I like the unexpected twists and turns.
Emma Galvin performed Divergent as well Insurgent. She was easy to listen to and I could get a feel for the different characters in her performance.
I enjoyed the book and would recommend it for a fun and enjoyable listen.
A lot of the charm of the first book was in setting up the "world" of the Factions and the characters. This continuation was almost a soap opera of the interaction of the characters.
Not enough visual to make a movie; maybe a tv series.
The narration was great! The action/adventure was great as well!
4 was my favorite even though he put up with the main characters stupidity. He was my favorite because I can relate to his strengths and weaknesses.
She has a wonderful voice!
Not moved, but hit hard when we find out a boy was a traitor all along.
This book was great and I can't wait for the next!!!
The Book was Good. Not as good as the Divergent, but it was worth listening to it... I would recommend the two books.
I haven't read the print version. That being said, the audio version was great
I just appreciate the concept of getting into trouble because you don't fit in, or are different
She was wonderful. Her voice really took me to the place that the book lived
Well written. Great concept. But, unlike the Hunger Games, the fact that it was a young adult book, sometimes made the concepts feel immature to me.
Tell us about yourself!
Made for teens - but a good adult read as well.
kept your attention - as story took different turns and twists,
easy on the ear.
I wish she’d working on distinguishing each character voices. I love her voice for Tris, but she is no Tavia Gilbert.
I can't wait for the next book.
Not really. It was okay but there are so many better books around that I would suggest something else. There are some books that are so powerful that when they are over I just sit in more or less stunned silence. Insurgent was not one of those.
Insurgent is really just a transition between Divergent and the third book (if there is one.) Insurgent did not bring in any new ideas (unlike Divergent which set up a really interesting and unusual civilization) but was more of an action-romance to get us from here to there. That Triss and Four would finally kill the evil egghead witch who wanted to take over the world was a forgone conclusion. No surprise there. Most of the book was spent in shooting and angst. The ending was especially flat because it wasn't really an ending. The third book might be better because it will deal with ideas again instead of two young lovers in the midst of war.
When I read fiction I am not aware of the words. I hear a voice and see pictures. All the narrators provide the voice and I am concentrate more on the pictures. This narrator did a good job with a less than stellar book.
It wasn't a great book or maybe even a very good book. But I wouldn't call it a bad book and I can see that a much younger person than me would like it better.
