Review:

This book was disappointing for me because I never actually connected with the plot, and after the ending of Insurgent I wanted more. It just felt like watching all those conspiracy movies again, a big cover up. Tris was once again responsible for a revolution, big news right, but I didn’t like her POV, it felt strained to me, just like her relationship with Tobias, it felt like a lie and the only thing they could do together was make up.

Tobias was a big zero on this story, because as always he doesn’t trust Tris, with the true and with doing the right thing. He always wants to have the last word and be right because mostly he wants to show in his parents face that he can do it. So he did mistakes, lots of those and in the end he sound like a winning baby, crying over nothing.

I was a little dubious about this book, mostly because of the dual POV and I was right, it’s wasnt perfect for me and I wish to go back and never read it. Some people may like, but there were way to many mistakes and the characters practically lost their personalities, it felt like a Tris and Tobias book, when we all know this world is more than that.

Review:

I have two reasons for only reading this book now, the first is cliffhanger. I almost died when I got to the end on the book and needed to wait so long to actually find out how Tris and Four would turn the drama upside down. And don’t get me wrong I waited a lot to start book one and finished in less than a day, it was that good. So the final book is releasing next week and I can finally get to the end, so this week sounded like a good one to read Insurgent.

It took me awhile to remember the things that happened, little things, because the book is full of drama and killing, but the story in Insurgent took awhile to get going. I found that in the first book the plot caught me since the start. It wasn’t a bad book, on the contrary I loved and the only reason it didn’t get the 5th star was the relationship between Tris and Four.

I go the feeling he was hiding things from her since the beginning and he treated her like a child, when in other times she was the most intelligent person for him. I didn’t like this duality in his character. They are finally together and I expected him to fight alongside her and believe in her after everything she has done in Divergent.

Marcus was a strange twist for me, because he never actually explained anything, more like he was buying time and throwing pebbles. Christina was a boring girl and I liked way more of her before WIll died. But she redeemed in the end.

Can’t wait to start Allegiant and discover how Tris is going to handle the backstabbing and final drama.

Book Blurb:

In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.


During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she’s chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she’s kept hidden from everyone because she’s been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves… or it might destroy her.



Debut author Veronica Roth bursts onto the literary scene with the first book in the Divergent series—dystopian thrillers filled with electrifying decisions, heartbreaking betrayals, stunning consequences, and unexpected romance.

My Thoughts:

I have Divergent sitting on my Bookshelf for quite some time and also heard great things about it, so when the end of 2011 came and almost every blog was nominating this as one of the Best, I had to read it ASAP.
And guys I’m so regretting not reading it sooner, but at the same time it comes for the best because honestly don’t think I could manage it to wait so long for Insurgent.

The book was amazing and I’m loving’ Dystopia right now. Since Hunger Games I haven’t really touched anything from this genre and it isn’t one my favorites. I love stories with a happy ending or even in a different reality, but this idea of a world on a brick of ending, it gives me some bad thoughts.

Divergent has a great story; Beatrice Prior is a girl living in a society that for me is a bully thing, divided in five factions that struggled every day to live without war. Beatrice is having problems with her choice. Her family is from Abnegation and lives to help other people before thinking about themselves, but she is not as selfless as it should, so when the time comes for her to choose her faction, strange things happen and she discovers herself named Divergent, problem she doesn’t have any idea what that means and can’t discuss with anyone.

So Beatrice has a situation and after she choose her faction(I’m not saying with one), she has to dealt with training and more drama, she’s the only one who can save the world as they know from a rebellion, crazy right? But the book is fast paced, so I didn’t even stop reading it, it has 487 pages one of the biggest on my shelf and still kept me hooked.

A plus side there’s a little romance starting on this one that I believe will be more talked about on Insurgent.
