“The next big thing.” (Rolling Stone)
“Roth knows how to write. The novel’s love story, intricate plot, and unforgettable setting work in concert to deliver a novel that will rivet fans of the first book.” (Publishers Weekly)
“In this addictive sequel to the acclaimed Divergent,a bleak post-apocalyptic Chicago collapses into all-out civil war. Another spectacular cliffhanger. Anyone who read the first book was dying for this one months ago; they’ll hardly be able to wait for the concluding volume.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“Insurgent explores several critical themes, including the importance of family and the crippling power of grief at its loss. A very good read.” (School Library Journal)

The book wasn't quite as good as the first one, but it was still good on it's own. The way the books read feel like they should all be put together with a smaller font and single spaced and sold as one book with three parts instead of three separate novels. Both the first and second book end rather abruptly, due to the fact that there's essentially just one plot for all three books. Each book doesn't rally have a plot on it's own, if that makes sense. With most series, there are subplots for each novel, and then a "grand plot" that goes throughout all the books.
The first two thirds of the book I found were rather slow, and quite repetitive. One thing I was happy about with the book was the fact that Tris just doesn't immediately get over shooting Will - it is something that she continuously struggles with, which I find more realistic than most books where people kill and they get over it right away. The character of Tris is a bit more firm in this novel, sort of like the author found her ground and knew how Tris would react to certain situations. Honestly, however, Tris feels to me like Erudite. It sort of bugs me that just because she was suitable for Erudite that she always has to be the one to solve all of the problems, but that's not really a big deal. Tris' struggle to put a value on her own life - and her wish to die - was saddening to read, and probably one of the highlights of the book. That part of the book felt emotional, and it was interesting to see how she would overcome the hurdle.
I really liked Christina in this book.Read more ›
The characters. All of them. I can’t seperate them. There are some good and some bad things about each character and you see them pretty clearly define in this novel.
I don’t know. I don’t think there are any because I can’t wrap my mind around how awesome this book was to be able to look at anything else.
Overall (Writing style, story line, and general):
Overall I cannot wait to see these come onto the big screen and I can’t wait until I can get my hands on the last novel. Some people say they don’t like the actors that were chosen, but I say let the movie speak for itself and only judge it after you’ve watched it.Read more ›
I like the fact that no, she doesn't have special power, weapon skills and boys fighting over her. I like that she can't get herself out of impossible confinement and yes someone has to save her. She is impulsive, quick to act, love and hate.
I like how Roth was able to answer what's a Divergent and what sets Tris's apart, why she acts and reacts certain way. Roth's second book focuses on relationships, character developments and humanity (not in boring way yet somehow predictable if you are over 25 and read a few books.) The book ends with a bang and leaves you wanting more.
