Insurgent (Divergent #2)
Author: Veronica Roth
Published May, 2012
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.
I didn’t like the book. At times I’d catch myself falling asleep while reading it. There was just so much confusion, in the story and in the writing. There was a lot of violence and some, not much, romance. I did like the tenderness of the romantic parts. I liked Divergent and was hoping I’d like this one too so I would go on and read the last book of the trilogy, Allegiant. Now I don’t know if I’ll read it or not. With all the action and violence I think this would make a better movie, the book didn’t do anything for me.
