Insurgent (Divergent #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 celebrat

I want to give a big old round of applause to HarperTEEN and their insane marketing campaign. Bravo. That is not mockery, but a legit salute. I sincerely have to give it up to you for convincing me that I had to own this book. I was caught up and boarded the Twitter hype train as it drove me round and round the blogosphere's Factions. (BTW, I still don't know who drives the damn train.) So, by the time I stepped into my local bookstore and laid eyes on Insurgent I happily handed over my $17.99. ...more
All right. Start it up "We Will Rock You" style, now.

**Warning: There will be no spoilers of Insurgent, only of Divergent**
After having not been immersed in the Divergent world since the first book came out last year, I had qualms about diving headfirst into Insurgent without refreshing myself with the basic events that happened prior to the start of this novel. However, having neither the time nor the care for reread ...more
The size of my disappointment probably has something to do with why I can't bring myself to award this two stars. I know Divergent isn't really a great book, the dystopia makes no sense, the Dauntless are ridiculous people who jump off trains to prove themselves... but, for me, it was still a wildly entertaining read. It was fast-paced, full of action, Tris was delightfully kickass, and the romance between her and Four complemented the main story without overtaking it. Insurgent failed on all o ...more
Was it my curiosity? Well, I need to be more careful. After all, curiosity killed the cat - and I'm a Leo. Uh-oh.
Welcome back to the senseless world of dystopian Chicago where you are only allowed to have one personality trait, which apparently is determined in what seems to be an equivalent of a 5-question multiple choice test. And this ridic ...more
Now I'm afraid that this book may have made me use up a few of my allotted nine lives. O_O
When I first read Divergent, I was awed. I loved it and I really enjoyed it. However there was this small part of me that just cannot acknowledge that this series could be, like most reviews had said, leveled with The Hunger Games. I don't know, there was something I need to see or feel for me to be completely convinced that it is worth comparing to THG or say that it could be as great as THG.
And well, great job Veronica Roth, because Insurgent just had me convinced that this series is ...more
“Come on, Insurgent,”
“Insurgent,” he says. “Noun. A person who acts in opposition to the established authority, who is not necessarily regarded as a belligerent.” I look at Fernando. The last time I broke into a faction’s headquarters, I did it with a gun in my hand, and I left bodies behind me. I want this time to be different. I need this time to be different. “I like it,” I say.
“Insurgent. It’s perfect.”
Once again I find myself with mixed views over a book. Middle books are usually fi ...more
If you have been following my status updates for Insurgent, this gif will look very familiar to you. That is because I have used it twice in a row. I wanted to use it again, but that might have been overdoing it. Sadly, I didn't enjoy Insurgent as much as I thought I would. The first 100 pages were a total snore-fest and I was literally vibrating my lips just like that, because that was more interesting than what I was reading. I already have concentration issues, and Insurgent didn’t ...more
''You're too important to just... die.''
This book was extraordinary. Not like the first one at all, but a good different. A different that will bring many emotions out of you and will definitely hook you from the first to the very last page.
I pout my lower lip for a second, but then I grin as the pieces come together. ''That's why you like me!'' I exclaim. ''Because you're not very nice either! It makes so much more sense now.''
Tris and Tobias have this incredible chemistry that is impossibl ...more
A FORETOLD DOOMED DYSTOPIA
They’ve made mistakes, of course, but they like everyone else, are a blend of good and bad.
I commented in my review of the first book, Divergent, that the presented dystopia in the story was doomed to fail by itself, and it wasn’t any shock that happen, even due many of the observations that I did. So, I don’t know you, but I think that all was part of the plan...
...well, not their plan, of course...
...but the ...more
. . . THE COVER.
I'm so freakin excited for this book!
******EDIT AFTER READING*******
I guess my excitement died down a little lol :P But it was really good still, even though I read it like two years after the first one :P
Firstly, the brave, sweet Tris I fell in love with in Divergent is replaced by an angsty heroine in Insurgent who is a complete STRANGER to me. What happened to my precious baby?? I realize murder and ...more
second books are always hard, particularly the middle book of a trilogy. so many times, they just operate as filler - adhering the beginning of a story to its conclusion with unnecessary stickiness. most trilogies should probably just be duologies, you ask me.
there are always exceptions: the border trilogy, chaos walking trilogy - where the middle book is actually the strongest, and books like kjaerstad's jonas wergeland trilogy, where each book i ...more
I just about died when I saw the release date as 2012.
WHY CAN'T IT BE SOONER? D:
It's finally out! I just got it today, in perfect time to start reading for my Florida trip that I'm leaving for tonight. :)
If I thought the last book left me with a lot of questions, this one left me with even more. sdrftgbhjnkm. I wish I would have been able to just sit down one afternoon and read this book in one sitting, but I was so busy, but whenever I started reading, I wouldn't w ...more
First of all, I LOVED LOVED LOVED Divergent. But I didn't like Tris or Four very much in this book. I don't remember Tris being such a bitch, and I understand that she is Dauntless now, and she has been through a lot, but she is just so mean. And Four has more mood swings than a girl - especially for someone who was so stoic, not in actual feelings but in display of feelings, in the first book. The two made me ...more
First of all,I am NOT one of those people who give 5 star rating to every damn book they read(obviously) so I am NOT going to give Insurgent 5 stars just because Divergent was great. That is not enough. I know all of my friends will say I am crazy for not liking this book but after reading books for so many years I just can't put up with certain things.
I understand some characters need to die ...more
I will try and post up an actual review on my blog...once I get over my fangirling and that horrible mournful feeling that is associated with the fact that I have just realised that Four isn't real and I will never become a Dauntless and marry him.
Real life sucks. Majorly.
IT OBLITERATED IT.
Insurgent picks up instantly where Divergent left off, with Tris, Four (Tobias), Marcus, Caleb and Peter having escaped the horrors of the Erudite attack and now seeking refuge in Amity. I'm pleased that we got to explore more of both Amity and Candor t ...more
All right, now. Here we go.
Let me start off by saying, I really liked Divergent. It wasn't the most fantastic or original thing I'd ever read, but it was a fun read. It was exciting, it had some cute romance, and so on. I read the whole thing ...more
I warn you now that this review will probably be incoherent and completely unstructured and just generally me rambling as I rock back and forth trying to figure out my feelings.
Insurgent was just...amazing. I mean, it was such a great continuation of Divergent. In that excellent way that only an awesome series can pull off. I have to admit, I did enjoy Divergent a bit more, so I’ve been torn over the rating of this book. In the end I gave ...more

3.5 Stars: I am not really sure of my feelings for this book.
- On the good side there was plenty of action and the concept at the ending of the book seems to be quite interesting. (view spoiler)[I was sure that at some point we needed to know what was outside the fence, and I can't wait to see what happens next with our characters. (hide spoiler)]
- On the bad side, parts of the action didn't make much sense. So much hiding in plain view, so much running away with no place to go, so many suicida ...more
This is a pretty good sequel to the first book Divergent. The plot is action-packed, there are lots of running, shooting, and fighting. These days I've been addicted in watching Nikita an American T.V. Show about a group of assassins. While watching the show I missed reading Divergent because it made me remember the initiation of Tris in the dauntless faction when Alex, a character from Nikita is undergoing her training to become an assassin. That's why I'm really excited in re ...more
It took me 12 days to finish this book. 12 days. That's probably the longest time I've ever taken to finish a book.
I loved Divergent, don't get me wrong. I thought that it was one of the most exciting books I've read all year, and I was soooooooo excited for this book, but now it's like... I'm just, I--
WHAT HAPPENED? Why are my hopes now completely crushed?
I just felt like Tris and Tobias were replaced by completely different people. The badass bitch from the first book was gone and wa ...more
