Overview

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.

This was my first time using audio books and now I'm hooked. Listening to the book allowed me to focus more since I have a difficult time reading the book myself. I would definitely recommend this app to my friends and family.

I stated reading this book a little bit too close after reading The Maze Runner and got confused for a while. Both are high-adrenaline teen apocalypse stories. If I had known how close Maze Runner and Divergent were I wouldn't have read them so close together. Insurgent is fast paced and you have a lot to keep track of to keep the story lines straight. In the end you realized that last few years of faction government has really screwed things up--a lot worse than the chaos of a "normal insurgency" warrant. I don't know how they are going to fix this. I need to read Allegiant.

I thought it was as good as the first one. The author does a good job of exploring the human effects of war. I'm excited for the next book.

Again Emma Galvin is the perfect voice for Tris. Story line was good but inconsistencies small ones. One that stuck out was swerving a car to miss pot holes that are the size of people. I live in the Midwest, We have pot holes the size of people.. we call it February. Good read though. (A good listen to. Emma Galvin really is awesome.)

The second story was so disjointed and nonsensical I'm probably not going to read the third. If you found the ending of book 1 a bit hard to accept it only gets worse. Add to that some annoyances with Tris: constantly harping on not being brave enough or selfless enough even though she puts her life on the line repeatedly, lying for no good reason repeatedly to Tobias, who for some reason keeps coming back for more. Plot holes galore. I greatly enjoyed the first book, this one didn't work for me.
