One choice can destroy you. Veronica Roth's second #1 New York Times bestseller continues the dystopian thrill ride that began in Divergent.

A hit with both teen and adult readers, Insurgent is the action-packed, emotional adventure that inspired the major motion picture starring Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Ansel Elgort, and Octavia Spencer.

As war surges in the factions of dystopian Chicago all around her, Tris attempts to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Plus don't miss Veronica Roth’s thrilling novel Carve the Mark .

        Great book! Not as good as the first one, but still kept up to expectations. The main plot was very similar to that of Divergent, but Tris and Tobias's love for each other is still not developing- they're already together.

              Beatrice, dubbed Tris, Prior's life is more dangerous than ever. While on the run from Jeanine Matthews and the rest of the power-hungrily ruthless Erudites, she and Four hurry to put together the pieces about the secret of Chicago. Why is Jeanine so desperate to protect the answer about the formation of the factions, to the extent that she would die for it to be kept secret? Dangerous scraps and bits about family, love, and creation fly as Tris throws herself into the middle of the action. This is a beautiful, fast-paced novel for anyone in the mood for an adventure, thriller, or romance - or maybe all three.

                  I decided to read this book because I didn't have my mind made up, so you can say that I accidentally stumbled upon this book. I just loved this book because I am a great reader and I thought that this is a very good book. I enjoyed it very much. I hope you enjoy it the same.

                    I personally found this book pretty slow and not as interesting, it’s also pretty inappropriate tbh

                      I prefer this to the first one, I don't know why, but I think this one was just fast and more interesting.
