Insurgent

by Veronica Roth

HarperCollins | May 1, 2012 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Insurgent is rated 4.375 out of 5 by 40.

Now includes an excerpt from the upcoming Four: A Divergent Collection.

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.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed feelings. Starts off strong, fizzles out in the middle and has a strong ending. I will read the 3rd book (Allegiant) My OVERALL impression was only "okay". I wanted to love it because Divergent was so good. I loved the 1st half of the book but then, towards the middle, it got kinda iffy for me (good scenes were cut too short, seemed choppy, useless/repetitive scenes were long & drawn out, too much going on without enough detail or description to really get into each situation). The characters, whom I loved, started to annoy me. Thankfully, towards the end it got really good again (the perfect balance of character interaction, action, story development). My curiosity & hope got me through to the end. I'm glad I made it to the end because the ending was better. I've heard that Allegiant is better with very divided opinions about the end (love or hate it). Insurgent reminded me a lot of "Mockingjay", the 3rd book in the "Hunger Games" trilogy in that the general feel of this book is more about political scheming, revolution and warfare. Divergent was more about human emotions, values & relationships. Insurgent starts off with a strong emotional pull towards Tris & Tobias but then the rest of the book dulls them out when their relationship SHOULD be getting more & more intense as the story progresses. Was the author was getting tired of describing their relationship midway into the book? The first half of Insurgent is really good & deals a lot with the aftermath of what happens in Divergent, on an emotional & psychological level but then all goes numb after that. The second half of the book is all about plots & fighting. Insurgent is very unbalanced in the way it is told and is lacking depth. It's almost as though the author was having trouble getting sufficient material down to get a decent amount of pages written. Technical stuff: Teen/YA dystopian. Violence, weaponry, warfare (there is no sex). I read at an average speed and it took me 12 hours to read Insurgent. Book 2 of 3 with add-on novellas.
