THIS IS BOOK 2 IN THE SERIES!
Book 1: Divergent ( MY REVIEW )
Wow. This book made me so stressed. Talk about feeling attached to the characters! This book and series is great if you love adventure and sitting on the edge of your seat while biting your nails.
Insurgent started right where Divergent ended. I hadn’t read Divergent in awhile so I was a bit lost at first with all the names and references to what happened. I still think I should go back and re-read these books. They are so full of detail. I loved the world building. These people are in factions where their good attributes are starting to show flaws. Take the faction Dauntless for example. Bravery was great until some let it turn into recklessness. It’s so interesting to see how everyone reacts to the bad things happening.
Tris had been through a lot in book 1. Her behavior was now a bit unpredictable. Tris wasn’t the type of heroine who fights to live. She was very human and flawed and raw at this point. She was so real. That’s why I loved her character even more in this book.
There were some really funny parts though for it being such a suspenseful book. I seriously laughed out loud, surprised at the humor. It was a great read! I can’t wait for the next installment. The last words I wrote in my notes immediately after finishing the book were: Intense. Exciting. Heart Pounding.
