However, Tris is alerted by Christina that one camera has caused three Dauntless members— Marlene , Hector , and Kee —to become simulated into attempting suicide unless a Divergent is handed over; they are unable to save Marlene.
Tris surrenders to Erudite and is placed in a cell by Peter and, to her shock, Caleb, both of whom are working with Jeanine. After unsuccessful simulation tests, Jeanine orders Tris' execution, but Peter swaps the lethal dose with a paralytic and frees Tobias, and the three escape to Abnegation.
Tris meets with Marcus, who tells her that Jeanine is withholding Abnegation's secret; should the factionless learn of it, it would certainly be destroyed. Tris, Christina, and Marcus head for Amity to request Johanna's help. She, alongside several others including Susan's brother, Robert , choose to assist them despite Amity's resistance.
They are joined by Cara and another Erudite renegade, Fernando , who act as navigators. The "Insurgents" infiltrate Erudite headquarters; Fernando is killed, but they manage to access Jeanine's laboratory.
Inside, Tris faces down simulations before confronting Jeanine, who is cornered by Tori Wu. Tori kills Jeanine, then brands Tris a traitor.
The invasion of Erudite over, Tris learns of the casualties, including Lynn, and that the factionless have taken all weapons to rule in Jeanine's place.
Tris is handcuffed alongside Christina, Marcus, and the other Insurgents, but is able to pass the information to Tobias, which he and Caleb share through the computers.
The secret video, narrated by Edith Prior , from "an organization fighting for peace", reveals that the world had become corrupt, and the city was sealed to allow the Divergents to increase, after which Amity was to open the fence forever and allow the population to re-enter the world.
The room erupts in voices as the book ends. Definitely a great series! A Must Read! Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. First off, I have to admit that it is difficult for me to rate this book without rating the series as a whole, so that is what I am going to do.
It turns out I cannot review this series without comparing it to Hunger Games.
There is a great deal of similarity between this series and Hunger Games. Teenage coming-of-age adventure story in a post-apocalyptic dystopian society.
I could go further into the premise, but it really does not make much sense outside the context of the book. Again, like Hunger Games, I found the first book gripping and devoured it quickly. The second book did a good job of keeping up that pace. Then the third book comes up, and, once again like Hunger Games, it takes the "Us vs.
Them" story and throws in "oh look, These Guys Too! Bet you didn't see THAT coming!
The first two books seem to be building your hope for the characters and the world they live in and the ability for them to make the world better. Then they expand the world, and the third book goes about crushing your hopes of a happy ending. While reading the first two books, I was a little bummed that it would be over in three.
By the time I was about a quarter through the third book, I was ready for it to be done. I was looking forward to Four during the first two books. After reading the third, I don't have any real interest in reading Four anymore. The real world does not have happy endings for everyone, but this isn't really about happy endings.
It is more about building up these characters to great heights with the implication that they will usher in a new age. Then, it turns out in the end they are a cog in a machine in the end. Important, sure, but used to an end just the same. I would actually rate the first two books at five stars, but the third book is such a letdown that it brings down the whole series for me, and this book is useless without the other two.
If you read Hunger Games and loved it, this scratches the same itch. In the end, I didn't hate it, but it lost a lot of luster quickly in the end.
I have to start by saying that watching the Divergent movie made me want to read the book. I really enjoyed the movie and I thought for sure there was more in the book. Beatrice is about to take the test that will determine which of the five factions she will go into for the rest of her life.
The five factions are: Candor the honest , Amity the peaceful , Erudite the intelligent , Dauntless the brave and Abnegation the selfless. Each of the factions carries out certain job throughout the city. Those without factions do all the dirty work and have no rights in society. Born into Abnegation, everyone thinks she will stay in.
On the day of the test, Beatrice learns she is Divergent. Fitting into not just one, but many factions. She chooses Dauntless and is told to keep her Divergent identity secret. In dauntless Beatrice renames herself Tris, and she is tested to determine who she really is.

Her failure could leave her factionless. Being divergent might just get her killed. I could completely picture the scenes while I read this book. There were only a few details left out of the movie Divergent.
This book was really addictive. The development of her relationship to Four made much more sense in the book and he was instrumental in the end. I really enjoyed the character building, getting to know her friends and her fears.
The author is able to draw in the reader right from the start. The location of this story is a dytopian Chicago. Forced to leave the neutrality of Amity, Tris, Tobias and others seek out the only other remaining groups for aid — Candor the honest and the Factionless. In their quest to find support, Tris and her friends are sorely tested. Friends become enemies.
Secret alliances and truths come to light. And even the bond between Tris and Tobias might not be enough to withstand the forces that threaten to tear them apart. So, all cards on the table: I was not as enamored with Insurgent as I was its predecessor. First, the good. I love that the book begins immediately following the dramatic conclusion of Divergent, with Tris, Tobias and their ragtag group of survivors seeking help and nursing their wounds.
Insurgent: Divergent, Book 2
As a character, Tris is deeply hurt, not just physically with her shoulder injury, but with the consequences of her actions after killing a good friend — a secret that she guards very closely from Tobias and everyone else.They continue to act selflessly and courageously, but Four also reminds Tris that there's a fine line between being brave and being reckless. The parents' guide to what's in this book. I straighten my shirt, smooth my hair down, and walk out.
Stylish dystopian thriller in a not-so-future Los Angeles. It encourages teens like me to go on to a serious relationship when ag Chapter TwentyFour. That is exactly what Tris Prior is in the second movie installment of the Divergent series. Insurgent shows that while you may dislike a book, it leads itself to a much better movie.
I'm not sure I'll be able to handle another book quite yet. Tris doesn't know what information they would be retrieving.
