Insurgent by Veronica Roth

(Divergent Trilogy, #2)
by Veronica Roth
Released |May 1st 2012 by HarperTeen|
Edition |Hardback, 525 pages|
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.

New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second book of the dystopian Divergent series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature.
The sequel to Divergent was amazing :) A must get your hands on immediately kind of book! I still think I loved Divergent better, but Insurgent was not too far behind!

I really like how in this book, Tris seemed even more real. I felt every single emotion she was going through. From all the heartache, grief, and guilt to her love and happiness she felt for Tobias. She really came to grow as a character. She trust in her instincts no matter who went against them.

Tobias, had a little bit more anger in him in this book. I couldn't read him as much as I did in Divergent. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. His love for Tris was still there and they both had to make some hard decisions separately. I don't know what the heck is going on with Evelyn. I don't want to give to much away on that. And what is going on with Tris' brother. He annoyed me!

I still enjoyed Tris and Tobias's romance, but it wasn't as prominent in this book as it was in Divergent. But it was there and when it was, I loved it :) There relationship was a little rocky in this book. They argued a lot. But it shows that all relationships are not perfect.

This book was action packed :D You know I love my action. From page to page, something was always happening. And I really like that you really get to see inside all the other factions, Amity, Candor, and Erudite. You learn so much about these factions. It goes more in dept into each. And you also get to see more Divergent people :) Who is who?

And the ending had one of those OMG moments :) I can't wait to see what happens in the next installment! I definitely recommend for those who loved Divergent to hurry and read Insurgent :) You will not be disappointed!


  1. Great Review Janina! Here's mine,

  2. Awesome review!
    I read Insurgent right after I finish Divergent. Just like you, I can't wait to see what happens in the next installment, too!
