*spoiler alert for those who haven’t read Divergent beforehand*
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.
So, Insurgent came out about a month ago, and I feel so out of it since almost everyone else had read it before me. Even my friends who I recommended Divergent to, read Insurgent before I did. But, I’m extremely happy to finally be able to post a review about the epicness that is Insurgent!
Insurgent was an amazingly fast-paced, action-packed, suspense-filled read! I started reading it before going to bed, and ended up staying up till 2 a.m. finishing it. For some reason, no matter how hard I tried, I could not for the life of me put down Insurgent. I would tell myself that every chapter would be the last, yet I kept on turning the pages, consuming every word.
Oh, Tobias and Tris! ❤ I absolutely love this couple, but they were infuriating throughout Insurgent. Every single time they had a disagreement that led into a fight, I wanted to throw down Insurgent and start yelling at them. But, thank goodness, there were still many adorable scenes that occurred which made up for everything else!
And, Oh My God the ending! That was just mind blowing! I was so not expecting it and I’m still recovering from its awesomeness.
Basically, Insurgent, probably one of the books I most anticipated in 2012, was hands down phenomenal. I assure you that Insurgent is a sequel that will not disappoint! It’s most definitely a MUST READ!
