Review ~ Insurgent (Divergent #2) by Veronica Roth

Insurgent (Divergent, #2)
ebook received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: May 1st 2012

Publisher: HarperCollins UK


One choice can transform you, or destroy you.

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.

My Opinion

I started Insurgent straight after I finished Divergent as I needed to know what was going to happen and I still can't believe I have waited so long to get a hole of this series! I do wish I had waited a little longer to read this one because now I have to wait for the third to arrive but it can't take that long to post can it?

Anyway Insurgent was just as fast-paced and gripping as the first book. Now I knew what I was letting myself in for with reading Veronica Roth's work I think I enjoyed it even more because I was excited to see how Tris developed and where the author was going to take the story next.

I liked that the author let Tris stay true to herself. She was strong but also doubted herself and the emotions that she went through came across as believable and realistic. I could sympathise with Tris and for me her doubt added another level of uncertainty to the writing that had me turning pages to find out what was going to happen. 

Once again, I loved the action. Everything is described perfectly and I like how now of it is muted. People die and it adds to the realism as I've read so many books where death is covered up so it was a nice change. 

The only thing I want more of was the romance but that is because I love romance books. I don't think the book needed it but Tris and Four are great to read about when they are together that I enjoyed those scenes most. In no way do I want the book to be total romance, I love the fact that it is mostly action but maybe a tad more. 

Overall Insurgent was all that I expected to be and more. I can't believe the author left it on such a cliffhanger which is now annoying me because I have to wait to finish the trilogy. Go read these books before the movie comes out - you won't be disappointed!
