Rated 2 out of 5 by from Series Gets Worse With Each Book With suspended disbelief, I was able to somewhat enjoy 'Divergent', but the more time you spend in this world, reading Roth's writing, the worse the books become in my eyes.The writing is not very good at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a page-turner but a great read nonetheless This was a relatively complex novel and I liked how it did not have a simple plot. The story opened my eyes to how difficult managing a city actually is and how there exists multiple contrasting perspectives when it comes to politics. Of course, it not only related to politics, but also well incorporated science fiction, romance, and lots of creativity. Although it tried to be, Insurgent was not that fast-paced, but definitely an enjoyable read and very well built up (which lead to an emotional roller coaster in Allegiant).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great series. This book part of the Divergent series is one of the best books I've ever read. It was worth the wait in between books to be published. Once I started reading, couldn't put the book down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An action-packed sequel to Divergent The second installment in the Divergent series picks up right where the first book left off. Tris and Tobias go to the Amity compound to recover from the simulation attack on the Abnegation. When the Erudite and Dauntless traitors arrive to look for them though, the couple narrowly escapes and returns to the city. However, Jeanine Matthews, the Erudite leader, intends to eliminate all Divergent and control the rest of the population. While Tris and Tobias try to find allies to stop the Erudite, they still struggle with grief over what happened and at the same time wonder who they can trust. Will they be able to thwart Jeanine’s plans? What will be the cost they have to pay if they succeed? I decided to read Insurgent before the movie goes out, and I was certainly not disappointed. This action-packed sequel to Divergent was an entertaining read. In fact, I had trouble putting it down. Surprising alliances and betrayals made for great suspense. In addition, the main characters are believable in spite of the extreme circumstances they find themselves in, especially Tris, a complex and flawed teenager. I must admit though that the trust issues between Tris and Tobias were getting a bit tiring after a while. However, the ending certainly makes you want to know what happens next, and I can’t wait to read the third book in the series.
