I definitely enjoyed Insurgent. I wish that the movie had included the scene where Tris was forced to have the "dreams" or the scenarios and Tobias had to watch because it was so emotional and would have been great to see. I couldn't relate to the movie at all. I thought that Insurgent was better than Divergent in some ways because you get to see Tris truly grow, and it was definitely better than Allegiant.

I liked divergent movie just fine even though a lot of people didn't like it. I haven't read the book and I don't think I'm going to anytime soon. Now I think the insurgent movie was good, same annoying Tris but more interesting story.

I felt like with Divergent, that was an introduction to the characters (of course), being the first book. It was only trying to tell who the characters are and some of their beliefs. With Insurgent, however, I felt as if it was trying to show more of how they would handle rough situations and bring out attitudes and personalities that were not elaborated more on in the first book. That being said, the personalities of the characters truly furthers the idea of the entire series. I would give this book a 4/6.....
