Insurgent by Veronica Roth

I read Insurgent by Veronica Roth. I started this book on Thursday, (yes, 2 days after it came out) and finished it today, Saturday. I was going to get it Tuesday but they didn’t have it yet, so my grandma had to buy it for me at Barnes and Noble.

Well, if you’ve read Divergent you know that they are in the middle of a war. Abnegation vs. Erudite. Tris has decided to take matters into her own hands and has been very reckless. She risked her life about a dozen times and you just want to shake her and say “What is happening to you?!?!” Of course, you can’t do that. ☺ Jeanine wants all of the Divergent to come to Erudite so she can study them. Tris finds out that some of her closest friends are Divergent and she has to risk her life to save them.

I liked this book A LOT!! Some of the things I liked were that you got introduced to some new characters and most of them played a big part in the book. I also liked how you learned more about Tobias’s past. I also liked how they brought back most of the characters from Divergent. I also like how Tobias gets a backbone and stands up to his father in Candor. If you’ve read the book, you know what I’m talking about. ;)

Some of the things I didn’t like were how Tobias and Tris started to grow apart. Arguments become fights and then they don’t even talk to each other anymore. It makes you want to chuck the book at a wall and hide in a corner, which I refused to do until I finished the book. ☺ Another thing I didn’t like was that Tris let death overtake her. She wanted to die. I’m glad she got over it and just in time too or else she would have died. She was there in the book, but she wasn’t there all the way though. She was half in, half out like not paying attention to really anything, but still doing things like walking and talking.

The ending surprised me the most. I should have seen it coming, but I guess I didn’t. :D Now I can’t help but wonder what will happen in the third book, but I already have an idea.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars!! A-ma-zing!!
