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.With a predecessor like Divergent my hopes were incredibly high for this sequel. Understandably, and when I want a book to be really good to live up to the expectations I have I am often left feeling disappointed. THIS WAS NOT THE CASE.
Insurgent, with its' ever changing dilemmas and suspense inducing plot, left me needing more from this incredible author. I can't wait to continue this literary journey in the next installment.
Drop whatever you are doing and read Divergent (if you haven't yet) and then quickly get ahold of this one. It is beyond anything I could have hoped it to be. Kudos Veronica Roth.
Insurgent takes the story of Tris and molds it into a seamless story of hope and survival that rocked my socks. I read it as quickly as possible, couldn't put it down.
