Insurgent is finally here, the compelling sequel to Divergent, is now our monthly read for May. Insurgent takes place where Divergent left off. Here's the description: 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

Terri ♥ (aka Mrs. Christian Grey) (mybookboyfriend) | 19 comments I'm about 75% through. I'm headed to go finish now.


Aurora | 129 comments I had another book to read first (Sorry, I've been a loyal fan of Rick Riordan too long. His books take precedence over others.) I'll be done with it by Friday, for sure, probably sooner. I'm starting it tonight.

Jay Insurgent (Divergent, #2) by Veronica Roth


Insurgent was amazing. I loved everything about this book. The action and adventure was incredible. Tris/Beatrice was awesome. I admire her because she's brave and cool. I'm really excited about the next book. Veronica Roth is an amazing author.

I feel lame.. I'm only the 2nd Red Pyramid book.. I started to read it awhile but I wasn't really in to it.. I like the House of Olympus or Percy Jackson best!

First I have to finish Throne of Fire but now I'm excited!


David Estes (davidestesbooks) | 373 comments Just finished Insurgent. I rated it 5 stars, enough said! Prepare for some stunning twists and turns and cool revelations!

Yeah, I just about freaked out when I read that!

I finished Insurgent. I thought it was very good. A tad predictable, but not in a bad way, and there were too many gunshot wounds, but I can overlook that. I loved it. Gosh, 364 days until the next one (Which I predict will be called Convergent.)

Was it better than Divergent?


David Estes (davidestesbooks) | 373 comments I can't pick between them but if you liked Divergent, I think you'll like Insurgent :). I think Divergent was awesome because of the concept and Insurgent was awesome because of what was revealed and the character development

No. The libraries here aren't updated. -.- And I don't buy from Amazon. Shipping takes forever and it's costly. So I'm really frustrated.

Scott, I'm probably alone in this, but I didn't think it was as good as Divergent.

I'm not done yet but so far I agree it's just not the same. Divergent is deff better but who knows maybe my opinion will differ

You can write spoilers as long as you use the spoiler thing.

Insurgent was awesome!
LOL, honestly, I didn't think it was better than Divergent, but to me it was on par with it. I certainly wouldn't put it into the disappointment category. I think it's just really hard when expectations are so high for a sequel :)

Renee | 176 comments I just finished Insurgent only minutes ago. Wowy wow wow. I think its amazing. The way it ended like that. Wholly shitake' mushrooms man O.O I must admit though, that Tris kind of annoyed me in this one. Just a bit. Definitely can't wait for the next one to come out though.

Hope your head quits hurting soon.
