Book Review: Insurgent by Veronica Roth

No Comments

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.

Should I even talk about this?

I... am... obsessed, pretty much. So there's Tris. And I love that she's short. Just had to say that. She is definitely one of the most complex, strong female protagonists I've ever read. Everyone, of course, immediately thinks of Katniss Everdeen, and I really liked her before she got all hyped up. I read The Hunger Games three or four years ago, and back then I was wild for it. But now... meh.

Back to Tris. And Tobias (I really dislike that name, but *sigh* oh well). They just had such a perfect and yet confusing dynamic and I was like WHY ARE YOU ARGUING?!

I read this a while ago, yes, because I'm behind on reviews (I'm currently reading Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare - gah - WILL) and so I can only provide you with a grievously inadequate analysis, but the characters and emotional depth and everything.... GAH.

If you've read Divergent, read this. DUH.

If you haven't read Divergent, I can only shake my head and say... "HAVE YOU BEEN LIVING UNDER A ROCK?!"

So bye then. (Divergent #3, which does not yet have a title: 10.22.13 - I will read it.)
