message 5: by Jenn (new)

Jenn I'm jealous.. I may have to put all other books down for this...seriously debating it. But then I feel like i should read the first book all over again. You really have to keep us posted if you start this one ASAP. :o)

message 6: by Dija (new)

Dija I wish I could read this tomorrow, but I'll have to finish what I'm reading first. Would you like to buddy read it with me sometime this week or this weekend?

message 7: by Jenn (new)

Jenn Love too!!! Just let me know when. :o)

message 8: by Dija (new)

Dija Yay! When would suit you? I think the weekend should be fine?

message 9: by Jenn (new)

Jenn Okay good, I was just going to suggest this weekend too. I'm game starting Friday.

message 10: by Dija (new)

Dija Cool! Can't wait. I missed Four so much! <3

message 11: by Jenn (new)

Jenn Love me some Four. :o)

message 12: by Jenn (new)

Jenn 2 more days!!! :o)

message 13: by Dija (new)

Dija I can hardly wait!! It's becoming impossible to stay away from all the discussions on this.

message 14: by Jenn (new)

Jenn So far, I've managed to not look. I'm hoping to keep that up with today through tomorrow.

message 15: by Dija (new)

Dija I'm at an advantage, because my Friday will start sooner than yours. It's still not soon enough though! I can't wait~!!

message 16: by Jenn (new)

Jenn Whats the time difference between you and me??

message 17: by Dija (new)

Dija We're 12 hours ahead.

message 18: by Jenn (new)

Jenn Well crud! lol I will have LOTS of catching up to you when I wake up. :o)

message 19: by Dija (new)

Dija I'll try to delay reading it as much as possible, but no promises, because my resolve is ultra-weak when it comes to Four. ;)

message 20: by Jenn (new)

Jenn LOL! It's okay I won't hold it against you if your resolve weakens. Mine would do the same if I had Four sitting in my hands beckoning me to read.

message 21: by Jenn (new)

Jenn Ok Miss Dija! Did you start this one yet????? :o) I'm getting kids off to school then off I go!!

message 22: by Dija (new)

Dija Not yet, I was waiting for you. Starting it now! :)

Aly is so frigging bored Have fun! I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

PS: That cover is great!

message 24: by Jenn (new)

Jenn You are so nice to wait. I was thinking you would have said to heck with that woman I'm starting it early! LOL! The cover is super awesome!! Fingers and toes crossed.

message 25: by Tiffany (new)

Tiffany Loves Books Your review is spot on!

message 26: by Mariya (new)

Mariya WHAT?! 2 stars! I am seriously afraid to read this. I've been avoiding Insurgent!! OH, MAN! OH, MAN!

Dija If it were anybody else, I'd tell them they still might like it, etc. etc., but since it's you, Mariya, and we tend to rate and review similarly, I'm sorry if I can't find it in me to encourage you to read this. The most I can offer you is the average rating - 4.35.

message 28: by Mariya (new)

Mariya Makes me mad I bought it. It's like, first book was awesome so you're gonna assumer the second book will be. I found with a few of the second's to the debut's I liked from last year, that I was very disappointed. :/

I mite just give it a shot just to see since I bought it. I"ve seen lots of mixed reviews with Insurgent though that it keeps getting pushed back. :/

message 29: by Jessica (new)

Jessica Day I have to admit I disliked Tris's dive to the crazy side. That was my only real issue with the book.

message 30: by Sinai C. (new)

Sinai C. AGREE on Tris' and Tobias (I call him that because he doesn't deserve to be called Four anymore.) I was like 30 pages in and I could already tell I was dealing with different people here, and it just.kept.going!

message 31: by Jocelyn (new)

Jocelyn Oh my god, this review is wonderful. And yes! I REFUSE to call Four Tobias. No. Frickin. Way.

message 32: by Jessica (new)

Jessica Day YES! EXACTLY! Jocelyn wrote: "Oh my god, this review is wonderful. And yes! I REFUSE to call Four Tobias. No. Frickin. Way."

message 33: by Ali (new)

Ali couldn't agree with you more. I'm 3/4 way through this book, and I had to come on here to see if I was the only one feeling completely disappointed with it. Such a shame - Tris is annoying me so much in this book, every time she does something else completely stupid and reckless, i just feel like throwing the book across the room, ugh!

message 34: by Noel (new)

Noel Rooks Yesssss. Tris is getting on my ever loving last nerve.

message 35: by Ms. Bentley (new)

Ms. Bentley Yes! Agree 100%

message 36: by Hannah (new)

OK, so first of all, can someone please explain to me what the heck is going on with Tris?? I'd like to say it was just character development, but you could hardly call it that. She basically transformed into a new person and frankly, I just find her whiny and annoying. Maybe she didn't like her hair cut and she's just bitter about it.
Secondly, can I just say that the amount of plot twists actually make me dizzy. It's ok to have a few here and there. But when the entire book is just one plot twist after another, we have a problem here.
And third, I feel like Veronica Roth is such an amazing writer. The eternal question is, what happened??
