Book Review #400 - Insurgent (Divergent #2) by Veronica Roth


Fighting for survival in a shattered world… the truth is her only hope.

The thrillingly dark sequel to No. 1 New York Times bestseller, DIVERGENT.

I have done bad things. I can’t take them back, and they are part of who I am.

Tris has survived a brutal attack on her former home and family. But she has paid a terrible price. Wracked by grief and guilt, she becomes ever more reckless as she struggles to accept her new future.

Yet if Tris wants to uncover the truth about her world, she must be stronger than ever… because more shocking choices and sacrifices lie ahead.
My Rating: 4/5
This book starts off right where Divergent left off, which was good as it was able to start off straight away and not recap everything.
Tris develops the most in this book. She becomes stronger both physically and mentally and really starts to become more Dauntless.
Tobias was the other character that developed a lot throughout this book. More of his back story is explored especially around his family.
For the first portion of the book, it felt more like a romance book. The romance aspect was too dominant and it seemed to not be moving along at the fast pace Divergent did.
The relationship between Tris and Tobias got really annoying at times just because of the juvenile arguments they continually had.
I read this book around Christmas and so there were so many distractions that made me stop reading for extended periods of time. For that reason I probably didn't enjoy this book as much as I should have.
