A(0ve2 wouw I like the UK covers!


message 4: by Karran (new)

Karran Personally, I prefer the US covers better! I don't like how they've changed it because Insurgent won't match my Divergent book :(


message 5: by Yambem (new)

Yambem yes us ones are more preferable

littleraqything hmm.... i think i like the UK covers. why is it that UK versions are sometimes better than the original ones?? haha :))


message 11: by Carter (new)

Carter I'm from the UK and I absolutely hate these covers, the American ones are just amazing and then these covers come along. I ended up buying a damaged American cover just so I could give the other one to my sister. I hope my Insurgent pre-order cover is the US one.


message 12: by Sandra (new)

Sandra Carter, agreed, why why why must there be cover changes. I live in south africa, and now its luck of the draw if i get the uk or us version, and land up with mismatched books,,,,i LOVE the us covers, the uk covers could be for any book


Diane ϟ [ Lestrange ] yup me too, i like more the us than uk version. it speak the story of the book itself with the color and the logo of factions.


message 14: by Carter (new)

Carter I pre-ordered it and she said it was paperback so I'm dreading if it is this one -.-


message 15: by Laura (new)

Laura i have this covers! I prefered this divergent cover to the fire one.


message 16: by Bianca (new)

Bianca Taguiang Being from London, I obviously have the UK covers. I was pretty gutted when I saw that we weren't getting the US version, but they grew on me. :)

Now, question to you guys from the UK: WHEN IS INSURGENT GOING TO BE OUT!? I mean, I've been to Waterstones numerous times now and they keep telling me that it's not out yet. :'(


message 17: by Bianca (new)

Bianca Taguiang And I wonder what the three burning leaves are? Hmm...


message 18: by Laura (new)

Laura its out in Uk on the 28th of May, i think. Thats when its out in Ireland. I was too excited to wait for it so the day it came out in America I ordered it off Amazon!


message 19: by Maria (new)

Maria F*cking Tris. so annoying. lol


message 20: by Reem (new)

Reem Alomran Thank GOD I am not the only one who hates Tris she is sooooo F** annoying !


message 21: by Brigitte (new)

Brigitte thats what you want in a book! you want the writer to start where they left off and not waste pages on refreshing. i thought it was a fanominal(spelling unknown) book with nothing missing. its not very often people read a 525 page book in one day!!!


message 22: by Kamelanne (new)

Kamelanne Wow. You spoke my mind.


message 23: by Henfa (new)

Henfa I totally agree with you. Veronica writes just incredible. And I also hated Tris in this book sometimes. JUST TELL TOBIAS WHERE YOU ARE GOING AND WHAT YOU ARE PLANNING! HE IS YOU B-O-Y-F-R-I-E-N-D AND IT INVOLVES HIM!! But well, she did for something. Tobias is so cute!
Oh, Will was a friend of her and Cristina's boyfrined. I also loved him! So cute!
Outside the fence? You know, after I finished this book I just started jumping around with all that ideas in my mind. Her mom. The fence. Jeanine, dead. The factionless-I had a spine for them all the way since the start, specially since Tris noticed one get Uriah's gun- armed. The shouting beggining.
Gosh! And I just couldn't remember who Therese was! A factionless ok, but whoo?? I love Cristina also! Such a good friend! And Uriah! And Marlene! And Lynn! Even Hector! -for you to know, if Hector survives I am going to enter that book and marry him-
Veronica is just great. The tittles are unique, short and perfect. She is killing me with the waiting for the third one, although I know waiting is worth for the great book she will write.
I also love your comments. WAITING FOR THE END!! ALLEGIANT!!


message 24: by Teresa (new)

Teresa great review Diane. I agree but I did enjoy it & will read Allegiant.


message 25: by Enassar (new)

Enassar I loved this book, and wanted to say that the absence of a love triangle was new and AN AMAZING ASPECT OF THE PLOT LINE. 90 percent of authors with a romance in a book always write in a love triangle to add drama. The thing I like about this trilogy was that the romance didn't outdo any of the other things going on. It was subtle but enormously noticeable at the same time.
The title IS truly perfect for this book, though. I actually forgot about the definition part in the book due to everything continuing to happen so rapidly. Tris is the definition of insurgent. Isurgent is what Tris is. It's perfect. She has to go against everything everyone says. The problem is she didn't keep it just towards authorities and such. She also applied this to Four/Tobias.
That upset me as well. She's supposed to be able to confide in him. If they just ignore each other and scare the other more every time they decide to do something stupid, the relationship will go down. Thankfully, they didn't constantly do that to each other...even if they did it A LOT.
The people were kind of hard to keep up with as well. They brought in a lot of minor characters from Divergent into Insurgent and added even more. There were so many names going through my head while reading this book that I had to reread many parts of the book to sort out everyone.
But honestly, even if some of the character development of Tris bugged me a bit, the book was AMAZING. The suspense in Divergent never left. It just got carried over to Insurgent. It was perfect.
