ATTENTION: As this is part of a series, please be aware that this review will contain spoilers for the preceding book/s, but not for the book itself. If you have not read the books prior to this one, please keep this in mind.

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.

The Short
Insurgent was AMAZING. I thought it was incredible, but it certainly differed to Divergent in a few areas. There was a darker undertone to Insurgent, as Tris struggled to come to terms with her previous losses and actions. Understandably, some people may not be as interested in this, however I loved the realism of it and furthermore, Tris' character development.

And of course, Tris and Four's relationship. It was a little rocky, but their bond continues to grow deeper and stronger.
*sidenote* Four is as sexy as ever.

The Long

The Good
Action-packed, more exploration of the city and factions, great character development, realistic romance progression, FOUR <3.

The Bad
... haha

What are your opinions on Insurgent?


  1. I'm surprised that this book was so different from its prequel, but just as amazing. Like you, I love realism and true struggles in books, so I'm happy to see that this book will not let me down in that sense. Great review, I've never seen a video done quite like this before! Happy reading (:

  2. Insurgent and Divergent are two of the best books I've ever read. It's a good thing I read Divergent just a few months before Insurgent came out, so didn't have to wait for long! Thank you for your review, I'm glad you enjoyed the book too.

  3. Four is one of the best fictional guys out there.

  4. Oh dear I just got this book this week. CAN'T WAIT TO READ IT!!

  7. I'm in love with this saga. My best friend shows me the Divergent book and I would say: I WANT THIS BOOK TOO! And I would ran to the book shop to buy it.
    Look at my spanish blog:

  9. We loved Insurgent as well. Our favourite, though, is still Divergent but this one was amazing!!! We loved to see this side of Tris and specially all the things that were going on between Tris and Four!
    Thanks for the amazing review :D
