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.

    "Surprisingly great"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended the book to my friends and sister because I think the evolution of the story is just breath taking. Every time I listen to it I'm in another world living at Trice's place.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Insurgent?

    There's many memorable moments in this book but (without giving away to much) I'd say that the execution is my favorite one.


    Have you listened to any of Emma Galvin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listen only at Divergent from Emma Galvin's other performances and this one is pretty close since it's the second book of the trilogy but I feel like this one is deeper and it gave chills.

    Story
    "Will See the Movie, Couldn't Listen to it Twice"

    I listened to the Divergent series about a year ago, and remembered the second one being not as good as the first, and third one being downright awful. Having recently seen the Divergent movie, I tried relistening to the second book. I had to stop halfway through. The narration is pretty hard to listen to (after mostly listening to Barbara Rosenblat and Steven Briggs). I think a lot of the appeal the first time through came from wanting to know what happens next; once you know, it's a lot harder to put up with. I'll definitely go see the movie, but I think I'd have to be pretty desperate to listen to the rest of the novel again.

    Story
    "Too juvenile for my taste."
    What disappointed you about Insurgent?

    It was worse than Divergent. I wasn't real impressed with the first book in the series but I muddled through it and decided to find out what happened next. I'm sorry I wasted my credit.


    What was most disappointing about Veronica Roth’s story?

    The story itself has great potential. The characters, however, are self-absorbed, petty, and uninteresting. I stopped listening and just asked one of my friends to give me a synopsis of the overall story.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emma Galvin?

    Davina Porter


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I felt irritated with the characters as well as the narrator.

    Story
    "Not as good as the first"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed listening to the narrator, and she does a good job with the pace as well as distinguishing between characters and scenes.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Trish needs to be less "woe is me". It is the main theme of the book, but or thus, it is too excessive.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Haven't finished it yet. Don't think I have a favorite scene though.


    Could you see Insurgent being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I hope they make the movie but with less of Trish's self-loathing. Same actors as the first.

    Story
    "Book that embodies Teenager Angst"
    Any additional comments?

    The fact that this book was written by a very young woman author is obvious from page one. The main character is chronically worrying over trivial relationship dilemmas of her own making and you have the dubious privilege of listening to hundreds of pages of her mental struggle to find inner peace. Unfortunately, it is a loosing battle as she decides repeatedly that the best way to win love and friendship is through deception, when there exists no reason to lie about past actions and future plans that are obviously justified.

    As for the plot, it is juvenile in that the world described is creative, but overly simplistic. This carries over into character development or the lack thereof. All characters are one dimensional, with few exceptions you always know how a particular character will act. As more of their past comes to light, they do not gain additional depth, rather their current character profile is just reinforced.

    The book starts very slow, but does have some action near the end. More action with less internal diatribe would have been welcome. Though I would love if books and Hollywood would cease to insist that a fit 100 pound girl could successfully take on a fit 200 pound guy with equal combat training. It seems that our overly politically correct society has decided that admitting that large men are more physically capable than petite woman is taboo.

    "worth merit"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    highly recommended to friends and acquaintances alike purely for the fact that it is a staple in the diet for teens but that being said it is not lacking worth.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Insurgent?

    without leaving any spoilers I would say the ending mainly because unlike the first book in the series (divergent) this sequel has an cliff hanger that leaves you intrigued.


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

    I would have to say Uriah.


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

    when a certain character whom thought they had a death wish faces their fears and realizes they don't want to die. it was a pivotal turning point and leaves me hoping for even more character development in an already dynamic, multi-faceted character.

    Story
    "Not bad, not great."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Books 2 and 3 feel like they were thought up after the fact. Maybe authors are forced to sign three book deals since movie trilogies are so popular. The first book was pretty solid, but 2 and 3 have a lot of oddities and plot holes. Books 2 and 3 make the same mistake that The Hunger Games sequels make, the main character becomes a douche and constantly makes all the wrong decisions and screws over everyone close to her over and over again. This aspect of the story is frustrating, the character is constantly being taught a lesson, but refuses to learn. The story in 2 and 3 is just less interesting in general, so don't expect too much.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting thing is the wonder about what is outside the fence. The least interesting is how bad the main characters behavior is.


    Have you listened to any of Emma Galvin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I'm not sure, but she was good in these books. The audio quality seemed to be good.


    Do you think Insurgent needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes, and it has one, or well two.


    Any additional comments?

    Books 2 and 3 are kinda blah compared to the first book, but they are worth listening to anyways.
