    "Great reader; bookmark suggestion"

    Liked the reader - she was very expressive.
    Didn't dislike anything.
    Great quality, except I wish the bookmark would just rewind by 5-10 seconds so you remember where you were.

    "It was ok"

    The narrator spoke very clearly. Had all the right intonation and made the book interesting.
    Although there was a lot of repetition of the word " frown" and others.
    The book was still really well written with a lot of details.

    "Not that enjoyable"

    Very jumpy, unbelievable situations, and annoying circumstances. Hard to follow and just not the best. Will listen to book three but hoping it goes back to being like book 1.

    "A brilliant follow up story"

    A brilliant follow up story, I can't wait to hear the third part of the series especially as the second film is about to be released. The book was a great and fast paced journey except around the two thirds part where I felt it slowed down and stalled just a bit. I also thought the story telling was a little to monotone for my liking and that most likely is not the book readers fault, but probably has more to do with how the actual main characters personality is portrayed. It has a fantastic ending with a twist that I personally did not quite expect that has left me quite literally hanging on the edge of my seat to hear the next part of the story.

    "Meh."

    While I enjoyed the first book in this series, based on this book, I will not finish the trilogy. It lacked so much that the first book had. I didn't care for any of the characters, didn't feel for any of them and I couldn't have cared if they lived or died. Frankly I don't remember who is doing what and where or with who because I just stopped caring. Perhaps a second listen could convince me otherwise but I doubt that I'll bother.

    "Got through it"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    He said, she said over and over again, please veronica think of something else to say instead! I have never heard these words repeated so often in a audio book.


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

    Most interesting was 4's relationship with his family.


    What three words best describe Emma Galvin’s performance?

    Good

    Story
    "Absorbing dystopian fiction"
    What did you like most about Insurgent?

    Beatrice's world is convincing and intriguing, and I enjoyed the way the story progressed, revealing more about the factions and their relationships as the book goes on.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The initiation process Beatrice goes through to join her chosen faction.


    Which character – as performed by Emma Gavin – was your favourite?

    It'd have to be Beatrice, as it's told in the first person we get to know her pretty well!


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I believe the film is already in production, but something like:
    'In a world where your choices are made for you, one girl will learn to think for herself...'


    Any additional comments?

    The reader is very good, I find female narrators a little shrill sometimes, but Emma Gavin has an expressive and pleasant voice, and she convinced as Beatrice. If you enjoyed the Hunger Games, then this book shares much of its tone and themes, I recommend it!

    "Didn't keep me as gripped as Divergent"

    I can't exactly put a finger on why exactly, but i did not find this as entertaining or gripping as the first one. I am looking forward to seeing the films and glad I've read the books first.

    "An excellent second chapter"

    Emma Galvin performs this audiobook extremely well. Although she could do more with her voice tone to distinguish between the male and female characters a bit better. My only critique with the author is that the personality of Tris is so inconsistent. She has so many mood swings...

    "Great story, struggled with narration"
    Would you listen to Insurgent again? Why?

    I would not but that is because I am not one for re-reading events


    What other book might you compare Insurgent to, and why?

    I cannot compare it to another book it is quite unique. A teen fiction of sorts I read years ago and decided to listen to this again after the film came out.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I enjoyed reading the story however I don't like the narration in the audio version, the accent seemed to flat.


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

    There are some parts that have a level of humour and scary parts as well.


    Any additional comments?

    I would be more inclined to read this rather than listen

    "Where is this story going?"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    im not sure the author actually knew where she was going with the plot of this book. It took forever to reveal the secret that marcus was keeping, and even then it really wasnt clear. Why does Tris keep making promises she doesnt intend to keep? it just doesnt make any sense why four is with her!


    Would you be willing to try another book from Veronica Roth? Why or why not?

    i loved Divergent, friends recommended i didnt bother with allegient - i read he synopsis on wkipedia, the plot goes crazy.


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

    love her as the voice of Tris, she has a very natural - teen sound.


    Was Insurgent worth the listening time?

    yes if you want to know the big secret


    Any additional comments?

    didnt bother with allegient - it just seemed to get weirder

    "Brilliant trilogy"
    What made the experience of listening to Insurgent the most enjoyable?

    The reader's voice is very soothing and perfect for the role of Tris. The entire trilogy was brilliant because of her voice.


    What other book might you compare Insurgent to, and why?

    Hunger games trilogy. The plots are very similar


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

    No. I believe this was the first


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES

    "A very good follow on book"
    Where does Insurgent rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is not a top ranking book but a good book to fill time when doing boring tasks, not one i would just stop everything to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the first and now the second book, if you like the rise and fight back of the down trodden then you will enjoy this, also has a few good twists like the first book. Will definitely get the third book.

    Story
    "Only read if you can take it."
    Would you try another book written by Veronica Roth or narrated by Emma Galvin?

    I thought Emma Galvin did a wonderful job reading so I'd definitely try her work again. As for Veronica Roth, I'd probably tread carefully from now on.


    What was most disappointing about Veronica Roth’s story?

    It was simply too brutal for me. I thought the first book was interesting, the characters well rounded, but eventually it became the book equivalent of an ego shooter game for me. It turned so bleak that I simply couldn't stick with it anymore.


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

    No, this was my first.


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

    Well it has a follow up book. I read a plot summary and decided to stop listening immediately when I did. There is only so much bleakness I find enjoyable.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a well written book. If unhappy situations don't put you off then I'm sure you'll enjoy it. I'm too sensitive though and if you're a parent reading this, I'd certainly think twice before letting my child enjoy this.

    Excellent narration. There are lots of emotional highs and lows and the book is not predictable. Characters continue to develop, and what motivates individuals are lesson we can all draw and reflect on in our own lives and experiences. Looking forward to the next one.
