“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)

Most of all a haunting reminder of the attitudes and soul of humankind.
Thank you, Veronica Roth for making me think in completely different ways. Can't wait to read the next one.
An avid and grateful reader.
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 ›
I still do identifiate very easily to her character and I loved the interaction with the bunch of new Dauntless friends.
Oh yeah. I read this book like, three times (and yeah, I'm 26). It does not only snatch the typical young adult attention, as it's story has enough «wisdom» to interest prety everyone that loves post-apo stories (I'd say... 16 to 35 years old??)
GREAT reading. Very hard to stop once you're in, you would have be warned.

I bought the book set after having watched the first 3 movies, and I have to admit that the books pale in comparison to the movies. Read morePublished 4 months ago by My2Cents
Insurgent is action packed and with an ending that leaves you wanting more. I love seeing Tris and Tobias each face tough decisions in an effort to restore their shattered world. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Vampire Fanatic
