Review: Insurgent

Veronica Roth
(Summary from

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.

Rating: 4/5

What I Loved:
~The story line picked up right where Divergent left off
~As expected with most books pertaining to war, there were deaths, but it seemed that the author didn't just kill people just to kill them, she chose certain characters that would make an impact on the story without completely throwing the story off
~Veronica Roth's style of writing
~ The cliffhanger

What I Didn't Love:
~ Tris, though understandably scarred, turned to making suicidal actions (She didn't understand that what she was doing was so dangerous, but everyone else around her could tell.)
~ Four's real name (Tobias)
