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.
New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second book of the dystopian DIVERGENT series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature.

My take on this book: CAUTION! IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THIS BOOK YET. CONTINUE AT YOUR OWN RISK! THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!

This book, like the first one, is a good book. Or at least I would like to think so. Then again if I don’t like a book I will stop reading it and not read any more of it. Unless I am close to the end of it and then I would finish it just because I need to find out what the ending was. But with this one I didn’t have this problem.

Insurgent starts off with Tris, Four and the rest of them on their way to the outside so that they could stay with Amity. I know that Tris ends up going all around Chicago and the end of the book was such a big shocker for me. I mean I wouldn’t really think of it happening the way it did. But then again the ending was good.

Though if you liked Jeanine then you probably wouldn’t like the ending of the book. The other person I didn’t really like would be Four’s mother because for one she is supposed to be dead but we learned that she wasn’t since she had to fake her death just to get away from her abusive husband. Though that I get. What I didn’t get was why didn’t she take Tobias, who is Four, with her? I mean that wouldn’t have been a selfish thing to do. But then again he would have been in the factionless and wouldn’t have gotten where he is now.

Another thing I disliked was how Four didn’t trust Tris’s judgement on his father, who is an evil person, but if he knows something about the outside world then why not find out what it is. We find out that one of Tris’s ancestor’s on her dad’s side came into Chicago, well besides her mom, from the outside world and that whenever they had enough Divergent people to send them out. Thankfully they found that out after Jeanine was dead from Tris killing her. She didn’t know what to think about that discovery. Since that was a big shocker for everyone in the compound to find out the truth about the Divergent. Well unless they were Erudite people like Tris’s brother. Even if he didn’t know about that being one of his ancestor’s. The only thing he knew was that they wouldn’t allow the Divergent people to leave because they have no clue what the outside world really looks like or if they even need help any more

This book was such a good one that it had me guessing the whole time I was reading it. Which is something that I love about some books.

This Review was previously posted on my blogspot site which I will be closing soon.
