Insurgent is the second book in the amazing Divergent series by Veronica Roth.
Their home is no longer safe. Erudite has joined forces with Dauntless to fight against Abnegation. Tris, Tobias, Caleb, Peter and Marcus must seek safety with Amity. But, unfortunately, safety is hard to find.
Racked by guilt and tortured by her parents’ deaths, Tris struggles to find peace in a world full of lies and destruction. On top of everything that has been going on, Tris and Tobias are both Divergent, meaning they’re different from everybody else. And that makes them a target for the Erudite who will gain knowledge at any cost. Because once the Erudite can perfect their brain-controlling serum to control the Divergent as well, the world will be theirs.
Tris and Tobias are left with no other choice but to ally themselves with the people from Tobias’s past. But every choice has consequences. One choice can transform you, but just as equally destroy you. The repercussions of Tris and Tobias’s choices are far more dangerous than they could ever have expected. They struggle to save those they love, including each other. Sacrifices must be made in order for Erudite to be taken down.
But even when all of this is over, will Tris ever be able to forgive herself for what she’s done? Tris must save the people she loves while also facing questions of grief and forgiveness, love and belonging, and most importantly, who she really is.
I really loved reading Insurgent. Again, I was connected with Tris on such a deep level as I watched her struggle to find out who she really is. Tris was so much stronger, both mentally and physically, than she was before. Although she was still so racked with guilt from her past, I know that everything that had happened to her made her more resilient. Insurgent, I felt, had many more twist and turns than Divergent. At some points in the book, I was worried that Tris wouldn’t survive at all. I was scared that all her loses and everything she’s sacrificed would be for nothing. I was again immersed in the story from the very beginning and I felt really connected to the characters and to the position they were in. It felt like turning every page changed my opinion on the situation or on the characters. This book was really action-packed. I loved every moment of it. In some parts, this book even made me cry. I was just so connected to Tris and I felt like I was facing every decision beside her. Veronica Roth is a really talented author and I can’t wait to read Allegiant. I loved reading Insurgent by Veronica Roth and I’d give it a score of 9 out of 10. I can’t wait to read Allegiant!
