Insurgent-A Book Review||❤


Hi Guys,
I'm sorry I haven't done many book reviews lately this is mainly because I have been quite busy preparing for school as the post on Monday said. So today I will be reviewing the book after Divergent which is Insurgent. After reading the first book in the series, I had very high expectations for it all and I must say that I was actually quite disappointed. 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 description seems alright. It was good enough to fool me into reading the book! Did my usual checks, loved the cover but it is all about what's inside the book. I found that it dragged on a bit too much, it just went on and on and on. I just wanted to grab a button and fast forward the whole book. It was mainly set around the Tris and Tobias (Four) relationship and was about nothing else really. All I could see was 'Tris kisses Tobias' yay to their relationship. I read the book for the action, to be at the edge of my seat through the whole thing like the Hunger Games but it just didn't happen for me. Sorry for favouring the Hunger Games during this review but at least something exciting was going on through all of the books!! At ,least the Hunger Games wasn't all about them making out all the time. It was ridiculous! I came here for a good Dystopia book which is fast paced and exhilarating but I was given a lovesick story in return. I fell in love with the characters in the first book but ended up finding them pointless and boring in the next. This didn't feel like a dystopian book to me but more of a teen fiction. I was very disappointed and it has even put me off seeing the films in the cinema. Oh dear Veronica Roth, you have failed me this time. I mean it is good but compared to other books it just looks stupid.

Overall I would give this book a 2/5 and I don't even need to explain why! Way overrated and is completely off the dystopia radar.

Keep Reading,
