Publisher Description

One choice can destroy you. Veronica Roth's second #1 New York Times bestseller continues the dystopian thrill ride that began in Divergent. 

A hit with both teen and adult readers, Insurgent is the action-packed, emotional adventure that inspired the major motion picture starring Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ansel Elgort, and Octavia Spencer.

As war surges in the factions of dystopian Chicago all around her, Tris attempts to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

And don't miss The Fates Divide, Veronica Roth's powerful sequel to the bestselling Carve the Mark!

Good book

It's a good book, but I was expecting a little more from it to be 5 stars.

QuebecMommy ,

Mixed feelings. Starts off strong, fizzles out in the middle and has a strong ending.

My OVERALL impression was only "okay". I wanted to love it because Divergent was so good. I loved the 1st half of the book but then, towards the middle, it got kinda iffy for me (good scenes were cut too short, seemed choppy, useless/repetitive scenes were long & drawn out, too much going on without enough detail or description to really get into each situation). The characters, whom I loved, started to annoy me. Thankfully, towards the end it got really good again (the perfect balance of character interaction, action, story development). My curiosity & hope got me through to the end. I'm glad I made it to the end because the ending was better. I've heard that Allegiant is better with very divided opinions about the end (love or hate it).

Insurgent reminded me a lot of "Mockingjay", the 3rd book in the "Hunger Games" trilogy in that the general feel of this book is more about political scheming, revolution and warfare. Divergent was more about human emotions, values & relationships. Insurgent starts off with a strong emotional pull towards Tris & Tobias but then the rest of the book dulls them out when their relationship SHOULD be getting more & more intense as the story progresses. Was the author was getting tired of describing their relationship midway into the book? The first half of Insurgent is really good & deals a lot with the aftermath of what happens in Divergent, on an emotional & psychological level but then all goes numb after that. The second half of the book is all about plots & fighting. Insurgent is very unbalanced in the way it is told and is lacking depth. It's almost as though the author was having trouble getting sufficient material down to get a decent amount of pages written.

Technical stuff: Teen/YA dystopian. Violence, weaponry, warfare (there is no sex). I read at an average speed and it took me 12 hours to read Insurgent. Book 2 of 3 with add-on novellas.

BEST. BOOK. SERIES. EVER!

As much as I loved the hunger games, or twilight, this book series is the new MUST READ for the whole world.
The first book in the series, Divergent, is an excellent written book, and had me up all night reading. (no joke)
Insurgent is also a great written book that left the readers sitting on the edge of their chair and hungry for more. In my opinion, this book could very likely end up more popular than the hunger games.
I hope you find this review helpful and will take my advice on buying this book. You will love it.
P.S. They are making Divergent into a movie. Can't wait! :-)
