Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good continuation What surprised me with this book is the fact that picked up pretty much immediately after Divergent ended. I was glad the author didn't skip months and make us wonder what had happened in between while slowly revealing bits and pieces. Or just not bothering to tell us at all. I really enjoyed this read and seeing the growth of the characters. The author definitely kept me on my toes (and fingertips) as to what was going to happen. There was one thing that was really bothering me by the end though & that was the relationship between the main characters. *Spoiler Alert* The vicious cycle of "I love you-I'm lying to you-OK I'll never do it again" was wearing my patience thin. Despite that, it was still a page turner and the ending of this book had me picking up the next one right away!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Do not love it The first book was amazing, but this one just didn't compare at all. It was very disjunct, all over the place, and made it hard to agree or even relate to any of the characters.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fine, not great Riding in with the tide of YA Dystopian popularity, it's no big surprise that Divergent got as famous as it did. Unfortunately, there isn't much left to the series once the hype and marketing died down. The futuristic society is arranged more as a philosophical thought experiment than as something realistic, but it's the kiddie version of philosophy - "what if we defined people's personalities based on a single trait?" Even that much is forgivable, but the series loses its focus after the first book, and becomes downright silly by the third. A passable read, but not worth seeking out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adore I don't usually read a lot of YA and dystopian lit has been done to death in YA, but I truly love this series. Book 2 is just as good as book 1

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good read I thought it was good continuation to the Divergent book. Although, I was a little disappointed in Tris in this book. In Divergent she is strong, not afraid of anything and in this book, although strong, I found her weak. I liked the book better then the movie, although I almost like how the characters are portrayed better in the movies. There are definite book VS movie differences, but since this is a book review, I'll simply say that it was a good read. It kept me reading and interested. I had a hard time putting the book down.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't like it This was an extremely boring sequel. I had to force myself to keep reading through it, nothing exciting really happens - even when it gets to the 'good' part. Divergent was good, but because I have a need to finish a series after I started it, I kept reading. If you don't care though, I would recommend to stop at Divergent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good! I read these books because they were trendy, I have to be honest. The Hunger Games series is much better, as is the first Maze Runner (for similar themed books). This one is worth a read, if you like dystopian fiction, but it's nothing new! #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Favourite in the Trilogy I think I carry an unpopular opinion in believing that this is the best Divergent book. If you've read DIVERGENT, please do yourself a favour and read INSURGENT. Character motivation and plot are best in this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from OK book with less interesting plot than the first I didn't like this as much as I liked the first one, but it was still good and I kept struggling with putting it down, I wanted to know the end. But, not because I cared for Tris, but because I cared for Four. I hated Tris in this book and as far as I'm concerned she was weak and annoying and was starting to become mean to Four. He should have picked a girl that would treat him well. Just like in the first book, I think the author managed to describe the world in a great way and I really got an image in my mind and that's something I really like. I want to see the world and Veronica Roth really made that possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insurgent-veronica Roth A continuing story of Divergent Insurgent is still factions trying to over come each other to be beyond their states to be the one persent not the99%. Mind controlling an entire City of peopleis evil , that 's our nature to creat slaves to do the hard work. Factions are like egypt, india, china and even america to think you your selv are better then your neighbor who kill each other with no remorse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insurgent AMAZING!!! its about a girl named tris and a guy named four. Ya the number nyways the live somewere were the people are all split up into factions! there are 5 fractions, daunless,erudite,candor,abnegation, and amity dauntless are crazy they jump out of trains and climb buildings and they train. Erudite is al sciencey they make potions and medicens. Amity are like farmers and they are almost always happy! now candor are the honest truthful ones. They can tell how your lieing by the look on your face. 0.0 (: now i will tell you abnigation, stiffs [a nickname for abnigation] help out the fractionless they are selfless. Also when your are born in a fracion you stay in that fraction until your sixteen.wht happens then is you take a test. They set you down a specal chair and the put a need in your neck. You go to sleep and yo in a diffornt world. People can see you on tv in your little land thing, and they will determind wicht fraction you should be in. To explain whar a fractionles person is it is someone who dosent fit in a fracton so they live on the streets, thatz who the stiffs help. I LOVE THIS BOK PLEASE BUY IT READ IT!!!!! I recomend this book for people\kids 9 yrs+ Have Fun kobo readerz! Signed Emily 10 years old.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AWESOME Insurent is an interesting book, not prefrably my favouite out of the 3, but still a great book. I still don't undertand how author {Veronica Roth} makes the main character {Tris} sound so believable as the 16 year old teenager. It's as almost if Tris is writing a diary, even though, during a somewhat war you probably woudn't have time to write about how you felt today. My recomendation for readers, is to find time in your day to read this book, because once you start a chapter, you're going to want to read another 5 or 6 chapter. Can' t wait for the movie!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insurgent Insurgent is a wonderfull adition to the Diverget series. It is truely amazing how Roth put in unexpected Divergent characters, and how that thing with Caleb... Wow. So, i am Erudite, but none of you people will know why... So, if you are Divergent, write a review too!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed feelings. Starts off strong, fizzles out in the middle and has a strong ending. I will read the 3rd book (Allegiant) My OVERALL impression was only "okay". I wanted to love it because Divergent was so good. I loved the 1st half of the book but then, towards the middle, it got kinda iffy for me (good scenes were cut too short, seemed choppy, useless/repetitive scenes were long & drawn out, too much going on without enough detail or description to really get into each situation). The characters, whom I loved, started to annoy me. Thankfully, towards the end it got really good again (the perfect balance of character interaction, action, story development). My curiosity & hope got me through to the end. I'm glad I made it to the end because the ending was better. I've heard that Allegiant is better with very divided opinions about the end (love or hate it). Insurgent reminded me a lot of "Mockingjay", the 3rd book in the "Hunger Games" trilogy in that the general feel of this book is more about political scheming, revolution and warfare. Divergent was more about human emotions, values & relationships. Insurgent starts off with a strong emotional pull towards Tris & Tobias but then the rest of the book dulls them out when their relationship SHOULD be getting more & more intense as the story progresses. Was the author was getting tired of describing their relationship midway into the book? The first half of Insurgent is really good & deals a lot with the aftermath of what happens in Divergent, on an emotional & psychological level but then all goes numb after that. The second half of the book is all about plots & fighting. Insurgent is very unbalanced in the way it is told and is lacking depth. It's almost as though the author was having trouble getting sufficient material down to get a decent amount of pages written. Technical stuff: Teen/YA dystopian. Violence, weaponry, warfare (there is no sex). I read at an average speed and it took me 12 hours to read Insurgent. Book 2 of 3 with add-on novellas.

Editorial Reviews

“Insurgent explores several critical themes, including the importance of family and the crippling power of grief at its loss. A very good read.”
