Review: Insurgent

Written by HourglassEyes

Would it kill the writers to actually make a female lead without all the moping and martyr attitude, even when the lead is a teenager? I mean with just a little bit more brain powers for Tris and the book would have been better just by leaving half of the annoyance away.

One choice can transform you — or it can destroy you. Tris Prior’s initiation day should have been marked by celebration, victory, and the thrills of being ranked first among the initiate class of her chosen faction, Dauntless. Instead, the day ends with the unspeakable horrors of Erudite simulation attacks, and while Tris survives thanks to her Divergent nature, many she loves do not.
 
War now seems inevitable. Though the Dauntless have been freed from Erudite mind control, conflict between the factions and their ideologies is only beginning. And in 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, radical new discoveries, and a fast-deepening romance, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

Veronica Roth’s first novel, Divergent, debuted on the New York Times bestseller list, the IndieNext bestseller list, and the BookScan Kids’ bestseller list. Publishers Weekly named Roth a “PW Flying Start,” and Divergent was named the #1 Summer Kids IndieNext Pick. Film rights were optioned by Summit Entertainment prepublication, and a movie is already in preproduction. Rights to the trilogy have been sold in twenty-five foreign territories (and counting)!
