Reviews of a Bibliophile: Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Published September 14, 2013 by Britt

Summary: 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.

It’s been a while since I read this book, so I don’t quite remember the details. Please forgive mistakes.

I’m so excited for the Divergent movie. You don’t understand. They better not make this another Percy Jackson. I started reading this series from a recommendation by Dinosaur. I think it’s his second favorite series after The Hunger Games.  Insurgent was just as good as the first book, but very different. I much enjoyed it, although I usually read each book in this series in about a day. Dinosaur is really surprised by this. It’s a combination of fast reading, good pacing and plot, and large font.

The events of this book definitely shape things for the third book. The ending makes me incredibly excited for the third book, leaves you with a good cliffhanger. I also like the fact there’s a severe lack of a stereotypical love triangle. That seems to be what the modern teen literature has to be about nowadays, and it’s definitely a fresh face in teen literature. Can’t wait for Allegiant!

Also, pretty covers. Love it.

★★★★ Four stars.
