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.

    "So much better than the 1st book."
    Would you listen to Insurgent again? Why?

    Sure.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Insurgent?

    When I realized that this book was so much better than the first in the series.


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

    All of them. She honestly reads it perfectly.


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

    Some parts made me tear up. I'm sure that's cause I can relate with Four.


    Any additional comments?

    Good listen. I'm going to buy the third in the series. Just know that the first book isn't nearly as good as this one.

    "Great Book - but STOP NOW - Don't read Book 3!!!"
    Where does Insurgent rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Loved Book 1 and 2! HATED BOOK 3! Will never read this author again! - obviously, she is just trying to make a name for herself and is willing to do whatever it takes. What a waste of my time, energy, and money!

    Seriously, if you enjoy book 2 - stop there! Book 3 will wreck the series for you! I have never been so disgusted by an author!

    "Long and drawn out story of a teenage girl"
    If you could sum up Insurgent in three words, what would they be?

    Long Drawn Out and Repetitiveness


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

    I am going to read the last book in the trilogy to see if it gets better.


    What about Emma Galvin’s performance did you like?

    She reads the books with emotion, depth, and makes you believe in the characters


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

    The End when they watched the video. This was the highlight of the book!


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed divergent the movie and more so the book. The first book gave a lot of information and a great story line; however, the second book deal with the following things:

    1.) Tris fighting between a suicidal death to see her parents or live in the hell that she is in
    2.) Insecurities with her 16 yr. old mind between killing Will and fighting with four
    3.) Betraying Four by teaming with his father
    4.) Not willing to hold a gun to fight her way out for survival.
    5.) Divergent means different
    6.) Her (Tris) parents left their factions to start over

    These are repetitive throughout the entire second book. It feels like this book was just a filler and she did not know to write. I like the author but this was not her best book!

    "I couldn't finish the book"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The reader was ok for the material she had


    What could Veronica Roth have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Very immature book. The characters reactions were completely unbelievable. I have teenagers, and the characters behaviors made this book very not fun. I gave up half way and just read the summaries and don't feel like I missed anything. The characters were stupid. They reacted stupidly. They acted stupidly. A dumb teenager book written for teenagers.

    "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.



    Highly recommended.

    "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!:)
