Insurgent, the second installment of Veronica Roth's dystopian Divergent series, takes us out of the faction city into the world beyond, and what a world it is! Most dystopic novels tend to encompass the world entire, or at least the country entire. Divergent introduced us to the factions, and set the stage for revolution. Insurgent delivers this promise, and more, giving us a dystopia nested within another. I have to say, I wasn't at all expecting that.

Characters continue to be developed and fleshed out. We get to dig into the personal lives, true faces, and motives of characters who were only seen in passing in the first book. Just goes to show that sometimes you don't really know people.

I absolutely love dystopias, but I do think the use of romantic triangles in modern YA dystopias (or paranormal stories) has become rather trite and cliché. Thankfully, this has not been the case with the Divergent series, thus far, at least. ( )

The audiobook really didn't inspire I must admit. The narration was fine, but I think that it kept me from liking Tris all that much. I get the feeling that reading these books will be better for most people since everyone else seems to love them ;-). That ending got me interested in Allegiant though, since until that moment I was kind of meh about finishing the trilogy. Now I'm curious! Overall though, I think that this series has been overcome by the hype-monster :-/ ( )

This is a great sequel. The action just keeps on going. The characters keep maturing ( which is amazing seeing that the life expectancy is about 20). I am enjoying it. ( )

At times I hated this novel and wanted to quit (Tris gets on my nerves much of the time!), but as it neared the end, I couldn't finish fast enough. And the ending....wow. Now I'll be rushing to the library for the final installment. ( )

As fast paced and intriguing as its predecessor. ( )

I won't write a spoiler here, but Veronica Roth really has a way of wrapping up the end of the story while leaving the reader gasping at the revelation, and desperate to read more.
