Insurgent by Veronica Roth
by Veronica Roth
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 accepter 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.
Insurgent picks up right after Divergent. Tris, Four, Marcus & Caleb are on a train heading to the Amity headquarters.
Half of Dauntless have teamed up with Erudite to work with Jeanne. The storyline of this one revolves around bringing down Erudite, finding out what Marcus knows, killing Jeanne and finding out what Jeanne is doing with the simulations.
I loved Insurgent just as much as I loved Divergent. There was a lot more going on in this book and it was exciting and thrilling. I just couldn't put it down.
Tris had changed in this book. After everything that she had been through, done and witnessed in Divergent she had became extremely scared of using guns and sort of became focused on risking her life at every possible opportunity. I kind of understood why she was doing all of that. She was on her own now - basically - and she was kind of depressed. She felt like she had to to everything she could to make up for what she did. I really felt for her in this book. She was so vulnerable and scared, yet she was still the same old Tris we all knew and loved. It just depended on what kind of situation she was in.
Tobias had changed in this one too. He became more reserved and was keeping a lot from Tris. There were times where I kind of wanted to punch him because he was being an ass, but I still loved him.
Because Tobias & Tris had both changed and were both keeping secrets, this cause a lot of problems with their relationship. They both had different opinions of situations, they argued a lot, they kept things from each other and they weren't the same people they were in the last book. Everything had changed. They both had trust issues and I was hoping that they would be able to get through everything and get back on track because I loved them together.
My hate for Jeanne escalated in this book. I hated her in the first book, but because she was in this one more, my hate for her grew and grew. She's such a horrible person. I hate her so much!
There was a twist involving Tobias in this one that I didn't expect. I was quite shocked actually when it happened. And then I just couldn't believe that he'd kept it a secret from Tris!
There was also a twist involving Caleb that I was really shocked about! I wasn't really sure what to do after it.
And then there was the ending. It was completely unexpected. I never in a million years expected that to happen. Now I'm extremely curious to find out what that revelation will do to everyone and what's going to happen next! I'm dying to know!
