Synopsis

Now includes an excerpt from the upcoming Four: A Divergent Collection.

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.

OK book with less interesting plot than the first
September 5th, 2015
I didn't like this as much as I liked the first one, but it was still good and I kept struggling with putting it down, I wanted to know the end. But, not because I cared for Tris, but because I cared for Four. I hated Tris in this book and as far as I'm concerned she was weak and annoying and was starting to become mean to Four. He should have picked a girl that would treat him well. Just like in the first book, I think the author managed to describe the world in a great way and I really got an image in my mind and that's something I really like. I want to see the world and Veronica Roth really made that possible.

A continuing story of Divergent Insurgent is still factions trying to over come each other to be beyond their states to be the one persent not the99%. Mind controlling an entire City of peopleis evil , that 's our nature to creat slaves to do the hard work. Factions are like egypt, india, china and even america to think you your selv are better then your neighbor who kill each other with no remorse.

AMAZING!!! its about a girl named tris and a guy named four. Ya the number nyways the live somewere were the people are all split up into factions! there are 5 fractions, daunless,erudite,candor,abnegation, and amity dauntless are crazy they jump out of trains and climb buildings and they train. Erudite is al sciencey they make potions and medicens. Amity are like farmers and they are almost always happy! now candor are the honest truthful ones. They can tell how your lieing by the look on your face. 0.0 (: now i will tell you abnigation, stiffs [a nickname for abnigation] help out the fractionless they are selfless. Also when your are born in a fracion you stay in that fraction until your sixteen.wht happens then is you take a test. They set you down a specal chair and the put a need in your neck. You go to sleep and yo in a diffornt world. People can see you on tv in your little land thing, and they will determind wicht fraction you should be in. To explain whar a fractionles person is it is someone who dosent fit in a fracton so they live on the streets, thatz who the stiffs help. I LOVE THIS BOK PLEASE BUY IT READ IT!!!!! I recomend this book for people\kids 9 yrs+ Have Fun kobo readerz! Signed Emily 10 years old.

March 13th, 2015
Insurent is an interesting book, not prefrably my favouite out of the 3, but still a great book. I still don't undertand how author {Veronica Roth} makes the main character {Tris} sound so believable as the 16 year old teenager. It's as almost if Tris is writing a diary, even though, during a somewhat war you probably woudn't have time to write about how you felt today. My recomendation for readers, is to find time in your day to read this book, because once you start a chapter, you're going to want to read another 5 or 6 chapter. Can' t wait for the movie!

Read it to fulfill your completionist impulses...
November 14th, 2014
I read this purely due to the momentum of having finished Divergent, and figured "why not go on to the next book". The spotty plotting of Divergent gets worse in Insurgent. Often, the plot points tended to be confusing, and I'd just go on to the next page rather than try to suss out what had actually happened, because in the end it didn't really matter. Insurgent is a pretty weak book. When characters keep secrets for the sole purpose of keeping the reader guessing, it just upends any feeling that the story is worth concentrating on. Why is Tris so useless, and yet supposedly powerful? It doesn't really make any sense. Also, that's just annoying. And yes, the lack of the importance of gravity in the Divergent world also continues. Why isn't gravity a thing here? Why do children love to jump off buildings and trains? Needless to say, I haven't read Allegiant, and have no desire to.
