“Fighting for survival in a shattered world… the truth is her only hope.
I have done bad things. I can’t take them back, and they are part of who I am.
Tris has survived a brutal attack on her former home and family. But she has paid a terrible price. Wracked by grief and guilt, she becomes ever more reckless as she struggles to accept her new future.
Yet if Tris wants to uncover the truth about her world, she must be stronger than ever… because more shocking choices and sacrifices lie ahead.”
This is the second book after Divergent, which I read on my trip earlier this year. I really liked this book. It moved the story on from a world united and divided by factions to a place where people are coming together to move forward.
Motivations for doing the things that happened in the first book became clear in Insurgent. There was more of an understanding of why people were making the decisions they were making. There was also more hints at how the world got to the state it is in.
There wasn’t as much character development in this one as the first, but you saw them move forward in a changing world. It was interesting to see how they coped with the changes. For some they were spurred on for others it held them back. I liked that it showed more vulnerability in the characters, which didn’t have chance to come across when they were in the factions exclusively.
I can’t wait to see where the story goes. It is hinted at at the end of the book, but I like that I still can’t guess as the characters are surprising.
