Insurgent (Divergent 2)

Insurgent (Divergent 2)
by Veronica Roth
Rating: 4/5

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.

My Review:
  I read book 1 (Divergent) back in January and I have to admit when I started reading this one I had forgotten a lot of the story, so I went back and skimmed the first one again and it started coming back to me quickly and I was once again excited to get started.
  This book had a very defeated tone through the beginning and Tris had lost so much in the simulation battle how could it not. I felt bad for Tris but sometimes I missed the old Tris she became a little whinny at times but I still loved and admired her for everything she had to shoulder.
  Four/Tobias was even better in this book I really liked this character a lot he the perfect amount of bad boy, his twists and turns were the most exciting part of the story and it was what kept me coming back for more I think I was more invested in him then Tris lol.
  The intertwining of factions was great, the realization that you can choose to leave your faction but lots choose to never forget. I was very very shocked at the betrayal of Tris' brother but it was also a good example of someone who will choose to forget and can be controlled by a sick thought. very interesting and the best part of the story.
  Great/Terrible ending lots of questions answered but like the last book lots of new and unanswered questions I cant wait for the next book I dont know if I can do it lol.
Happy Reading Friends!!!!!
