Genre:  YA Dystopian, Divergent Trilogy #2
Published:  2012
Personal Rating:  3.25/5 (just okay +)
Format/Narrator:  Audiobook/Emma Galvin
Yearly Count:  42

A civil war is on the brink in this dystopian world housed in Chicago.

I was happy that this one continued where it left off from the first in the trilogy, but I couldn't remember the first one very clearly and there wasn't much update.  I did catch on.  What I noticed most, even in the down times, was that there was always, always, always something going on.  There was constant movement or plan in place.  Good idea?  I don't know.  It made me feel like nothing was especially important when the high was always there.  Needless to say, overall, I enjoyed it.

Thoughts of Joy


  1. I have yet to try this series. Not sure it's my cuppa tea, but ya never know.

    Hope you're having a good summer, Joy. I don't know where the time goes, but I feel like I haven't had enough time to visit blogs lately. Or post. Or read. I think I need a big snowstorm! ;)

    1. Les ~ Tee Hee to the "big snowstorm!" I love the snow, so my winter was amazing! With 8 days off school, who could ask for anything better?! :)

      I'm listening to The 5th Wave now and this one is similar in its YA writing. You might enjoy it more than you think.

  2. Thanks for the recommendation. I actually read The 5th Wave a year ago May and gave it a 4.75/5 rating. You can read my review here, if you like.

    1. Les ~ I remembered that you read it when I picked it up as an audio. I started reading it (yes, I have a hard copy) forever ago, but wanted to give it my full attention, so set it aside for last summer. I never got to it. When I saw it as an audio, I snatched it up. I'm almost done with it now and have been interested throughout, but haven't liked it as much as you.

  3. Re-reading your comment to me, I realize you were say I might enjoy Insurgent more than I think. You're probably right. I'll give it a try one of these days!

    1. Les ~ Yep! That's what I was saying. :)


Thank you for taking the time to comment. :)

I hope you have a great day and ...
Happy Reading!
