Book Description

May 1 2012 Divergent Trilogy (Book 2)

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 bestselling 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.

Product Description

Review

“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)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Follow-Up May 14 2012
Format:Hardcover
The second book starts off RIGHT where the first book left off. Fast-paced with interesting developments. The one big negative is Tris' turmoil and internal conflict with Will's death... this guilt-trip goes on and on and I found it just too much. It mentions too much of her guilt in killing him. I can see how a 16-year old could have "issues" overcoming the guilt of killing a friend. Throughout the book, we see a different, more vulnerable and a broken little girl. She didn't get a chance to grief the loss of her family in book 1 and I find that her feelings re: her parents deaths were not "written" in but a reader must somehow see through her fixation on Will's death as a way for her to punish herself for her parents' deaths? Her desire to give up and join her dead ma & pa makes me want to scream at her and tell her to get her act together!

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the first, but okay all the same. July 31 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
One thing that jumps out to me is the amount of times the author wrote, "I fit my mouth to his." That description would have been fine once in the novel, but it is used too often.
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Insurgent Disappointment Sept. 30 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved Divergent and couldn't wait to see how the story would continue to unfold in Insurgent. Well I don't know what happened to Tris but she went from strong and smart to dumb and dumber. It's like she developed some sort of Messiah complex and was on a perpetual suicide mission. I got so annoyed with her faulty logic and stupidity that I had a hard time finishing the book. Was happy the action picked up in the last 1/6th of the book. Divergent was a 4.5 and Insurgent a generous 1.5. And all the secrecy between her and Tobias was totally maddening. I guess it's difficult to sustain the kind of momentum that Divergent had.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a book! Awesome and left me wanting more! July 15 2013
By Jetches TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Oh. My. Lordy. What the heck is going on? I am captivated. I want to know more. I love Four...most of the time. I disliked Tris...most of the time. And everything has just changed. Finally...finally we know more about how their world came to be. There are some traitors (who make me cry), and both Tris and Four act a little pig-headed. But, this book...this book was amazing. I don’t even know how much I can say because I’m worried about ruining it for other who haven’t read it, but lets just say that Tris is a little reckless after everything she’s been through. Tris and Four are both going through their own psychological things. Tris is worried about people she loves dying and people dying for her, where Four is worried about people he loves leaving him, or betraying him. Really they are having a tough time of it. And so is the rest of the factions. You can’t really tell who is on who’s side because they are all trying to stick to their principles, well their faction’s principals. However, a lot of people change in this novel. It kept me on my toes and stopped me from being able to put it down.

Good:

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.

Bad:

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.

Formulaic and banal. Teenage in it's emotional range it does not actually challenge or inspire any reflective growth. Thus must be the secret to its popularity

It was very well written but very unsatisfying conclusion to the series. There should be more of history to the book and story line that the author did not elaborate on.
