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.

This book was more of the same as the first, but it was worse. I endured it, and I am NOT going to finish the series.
I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audible allows me to keep up with all my favorite authors while on the hiking trail. Thanks, Audible!
This is a series that questions what is fundamental about human nature: good or evil. It is a classic literary and philosophical question and never fails to entertain when done well. Veronica Roth has created a compelling world in which to ask this question. But there are two issues that consistently bother me throughout these stories. (1) Veronica Roth tries too hard to make a point about religion as an opiate. Indeed, the correlations she tries to make between her dystopia and religion feel forced at times. (2) The first two books in this series are written from only one point of view, a teenage girl. If you are like me, you may find it slightly tiresome to consistently be presented with only one point of view. All and all, this is an entertaining read but doesn't achieve the philosophical journey it is attempting.
Started to enjoy listening to books after a far too long break from reading nothing but scientific books.
I really enjoyed the development of Tris and her life in this more chaotic continuation of the series.
Tris is my favorite character performed by Emma, but with that said I really think she made a great job with all characters!
I would say that the ending of the book was the moment that made the most impact.
I really enjoyed the first book in this trilogy series. Insurgent was not quite as good as divergent but still quite enjoyable. The best feature of the story was absolutely the narrator the stunning job and was very believable as the narrator Tris
I couldn't say that there was anything in particular that I enjoyed the most about the story I can't say that I did find the characters to be a bit whiny and not as well-developed as in divergent
I was a bit disappointed with the way the author kept going back to our main characters fears and traumas, even though they did not effect the story. at certain points it reminded me of a screen play for a telenovela.
Actually, it is Jennifer, not Michael. I enjoy a variety of books but am drawn to romantic historical fiction with a Christian message.
Very entertaining. Kept my attention but I think I liked the first book better. At some point I will listen to the third but not compelled at this time.
At one point Eric tells Trish he can't believe she was so stupid as to not bring a gun. Eric was right. It's impossible for me to believe that Trish can go from stone cold killer to unable to touch a gun even when her life and the life of others depend on her. I struggled through many other ridiculous plot twists, but this was one too many.
Emma did an excellent job with the material she was given. I have no favorite.
Disappointment. Divergent was a decent story. It's too bad Insurgent is such a flop.
If you are a teenage girl, the love interest may be enough for you keep reading.
Fun book except for the obvious train wreck of a love story in it. The love story starts out fine, but then goes into teenage girl train wreck that made me leave this book.without finishing it.
This trilogy is interesting and has a bit more character development than the hunger games. But at the end of the day, the delivery and narration is very juvenile in some parts of the book and I had trouble getting through it. I think this is a book I would rather read and invent the voices and tones of the characters in my head than actually listen to the teenage inflections. Story is great, though quite violent at times. I think I will read nr 3. on my kindle.
Not bad for a middle book.
Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!
Tris spends way too much time whining.
