Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Insurgent (Divergent #2)
by Veronica Roth


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!


  1. I'm happy you liked it as much as you liked Divergent. I had some troubles with this one, but I'm still SO excited for the last book!


    1. I really enjoyed it! I managed to get through it quickly :)
      I'm really excited for Allegiant now! :D

  2. I am so happy that you loved this one as much as you did! There was much more action and so much more happening, plus I love the romance between Tris and Tobias BECAUSE they argue and keep secrets!

    Great review :)

    1. There was! It made it really gripping! I liked it too, it added a bit of extra tension to the novel.
      Thanks :)

  3. I loved Insurgent too, though I liked Divergent better! I think I got confused with so many twists. Also I read this one over many days, with gaps in between. Nice review! I hope we like Allegiant too! :D

    1. I liked them both the same :)
      I enjoyed the twists, they kept me hooked and made me want to keep reading. I think I read it in about a day. Thank you!
      I'm really excited for Allegiant :D

  4. I loved this book so much as well. I read them both in like a day and I cannot wait for more. Book two was a really nice step-up from Divergent. I am super excited for the last installment.

    1. I think I bought Insurgent a couple of weeks after I read Divergent, but I never read it. But I had to get around to reading it now since Allegiant is out soon! :)

  5. Great review! That is SUCH a pretty cover *.* so glad you loved the book!

    1. Thank you! I really like the UK covers, but I do prefer the US ones :)
