Review: Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Rating: 5/5

   Might I first start of with saying that I only regret the choices that Tris made in choosing her faction simply because they led to a harder life for her. I haven't led such an easy life myself. It saddened me to see her struggle at times, knowing if she would've only chose differently, things could've been so different. I am constantly reminded of this and can't help but wonder what could've happened if only she would've chose differently.
  With the way that Divergent ended, Tris still stands strong, knowing that the decisions she was left to make in Divergent weren't a choice, but in all reality, a matter of life or death. In Insurgent, things get far tougher, far beyond anything Tris could've imagined, yet she still has to stand strong. At times, yes I can admit that she was getting a bit too cocky for me. A bit too careless with herself? Ruthless? What I loved is that Four calls her out on this. Calls her down and lets her know what's going on. She isn't the only one dealing with the issues at hand and she has others to help her. She just needs to open up and let them.
  What Tris doesn't know is that the truth lies hidden in Erudite. It's what her mother was trying to go after. And it can be destroyed at any second. But if Tris can just find out what it is, she can unlock the truth about so much. She just has to get past Eric and the wicked Jeanine.

  1. Great review!! I had a hard time really liking Tris and Four in this one. Not that I didn't like them, because I still love them and think they are both great characters, but they were just so moody in this one. (Which I totally get.) I thought that where the story went was great. I have to say that I expected something like that though so it wasn't really shocking. I am really looking forward to the next one.

  2. This was a very slow read for me (at least until the last 100-150 pages or so). I just could not connect with Tris, who I loved in Divergent. But what an ending!
