But Erudite’s attack is just the beginning of an upheaval in their society in which the Divergent have a huge part to play. But Tris doesn’t know what exactly is going on. She just knows that Jeanine (Kate Winslet) won’t stop hunting her.

After Divergent I actually thought I’d skip Insurgent but then I was weak and went to see it after all. And it was actually worse than Divergent.

Insurgent (Veronica Roth)

Insurgent is the second book in the Divergent Series by Veronica Roth. [Here’s my review of the first book, Divergent.]

Plot [with SPOILERS for Divergent]:
Insurgent picks up directly after Divergent: The Erudite have attacked Abnegation and Tris, Four, Marcus, Caleb and Peter are heading to Amity for a safe place to stay. But the Erudite’s attack is just the beginning of an upheaval in their society in which the Divergent have a huge part to play. But Tris doesn’t know what exactly is going on. She only knows that Marcus knows more than he cares to admit.

Insurgent, much like Divergent, is a quick, nice read. But there are also a few things that don’t work too well. In short, it didn’t blow me away but it was rather entertaining.
