Insurgent - Book Review

Saturday, 29 November 2014

Life update: Before I start, I want to apologize for lack of blogging! I wish I could explain, but really it's just laziness and having nothing planned for this blog. 

I'm late with this review since I finished this book a little while ago and I'm already 150+ pages into the next one. But better late than never...

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.
Rating: 4/5

My thoughts:

Disclaimer: I will be talking about events that happen in the book, so spoiler alert. You've been warned!

The second book took a little longer for me to get interested in the story. Mainly because it felt like so much was going on. It goes in many directions throughout the book. But I did ended up liking it. It flowed well, and like where the story ended. It had me craving to start the third one (which as you can see from the beginning of this post, I have).

While I understood where Tris was coming from, her constant lying to Tobias was frustrating! Just because at times it felt selfish that she would put him through what she put him through. So their constant back and fourth throughout the book was painful, but in that good angst way. Where you just want them to work it out properly, but then there'd be no drama, and you need the drama!! So I was frustrated, but in a good way..if that makes any sense!

I'm really enjoying this series! I'm intrigued to see how it all ends.
