Review: Insurgent by Veronica Roth

by Veronica Roth
Source: Bought and Signed copy from BEA

Summary: 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.

Review: Insurgent was my most anticipated book for 2012. I don't know why it took me so long to review it, honestly I kind of forgot. I read it the day it came out but things came up and basically I forgot to tell you guys how much a LOVED this book. Really I adored Insurgent. Honestly I was a little worried because of how much I loved Divergent, I didn't think anything could compare to it. Yes Insurgent was just as good, if not BETTER then Divergent. 

Why did I like it? Well Insurgent picks up right where it left off and it also doesn't waste any time. Veronica Roth gets right into the story. There's no fluff telling you what happened in the last novel, the action starts off right away. It was addicting. Really you can't put this one down.

I also enjoyed the fact that there wasn't another love triangle or a random new love interest. While Tris and Four have their differences and fights, just as any couple, it didn't have that second book drama. And you know what I mean, almost all the second books in the series have the couple breaking up and a new love interest that complicates everything for one books. It was just so refreshing to see the couple working out without a love triangle.

If you're a fan of Divergent and haven't read Insurgent yet you a crazy. Literally Insane. Get your butt in gear and read this book!
