I liked the book-it kept moving and I was always wanting to read one more chapter. The ending really bothered me, just like Divergent's ending. It seems like Veronica Roth wrote all three and decided to chop it into three books to be trendy with the trilogy and make more money. The endings didn't wrap anything up.

Very good book.Couldnt keep my eyes off of it.

Still an ok book but I was disappointed after reading this book because the first book was so much better.

Better than allegiant. I liked Divergent the best, though. I liked it when she was injected with too much of that peace stuff, it was funny.

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.

The second book in the Divergent series was my favorite. With lots of twists and turns, I couldn't put it down.

One choice can transform you...
One choice can destroy you....
Tris Prior knows she isn't just Dauntless or Abnegation......... she must be more than both. As the war between the factions rages on Tris faces more and more problems. She hides secret from her loved ones. Tobias and her are now face problems in their relationship. And what was the real reason for her mother being in the Abnegation headquarters the night of her death?

"As war surges in the dystopian society around her, sixteen-year-old Divergent 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"--

Background info about Divergent: It's all about the Erudite wanting to controll the Dauntless people to attack the Abnegation.
Now in Insurgent, Tris, Tobias and others of the Abnegations went to Amity headcorters to seek shelter. The Erudite found out and everyone had to run again. Then one night out of no where two of Tris's friends were being controlled and jumped off the building threatening that if one divergent person is not in the Erudite headcorters by__ this would happen again.
Basically, it is a fast pace book with people on the edge of their chairs waiting for what is to come in this book.

"Got that gun?" Peter says to Tobias.
"No," says Tobias, "I figured I would shoot the bullets out of my nostrils, so I left it upstairs."
"Oh, shut up."

Grief is not as heavy as guilt, but it takes more away from you.

"Sleep," he says. "I'll fight the bad dreams off if they come to get you."

"With what?"

"My bare hands, obviously."

When I walk back into Tobias's room, Uriah is sprawled across the bed facedown; Christina is holding the blue sculpture above Tobias's desk, examining it; and Lynn is poised above Uriah with a pillow, a wicked grin creeping across her face. Lynn smacks Uriah hard in the back of the head, Christina says, "Hey Tris!" and Uriah cries, "Ow! How on earth do you make a PILLOW hurt, Lynn?"

This is wrong. It's wrong to forget who I have become, and to let him kiss me when I know what I am about to do. But I want to. Oh, I want to.

"You would be fine." I don't look at him. I stare at his t-shirt between my fingers and the black ink curling around his neck, but I don't look at his face. "Not at first. But you would move on, and do what you have to." He wraps an arm around my waist and pulls me against him. "That's a lie." he says, before he kisses me again.

"You're too important to just... die." He shakes his head. He won't even look at me- his eyes keep shifting across my face, to the wall behind me or the ceiling above me, to everything but me. I am too stunned to be angry.
"I'm not important. Everyone will do just fine without me." I say.
"Who cares about everyone? What about me?"
