One choice can destroy you…
After the events that happened in Divergent, Tris, Four, Caleb, Peter and Marcus seek refuge at Amity headquarters. Tris and Four are no longer part of the Dauntless faction.
One day Dauntless soldiers visit Amity headquarters to arrest all Divergent people. Tris and Four manage to run and end up in a train to the factionless sector. There they meet a very special person, whom they thought was dead (I’m trying really hard not to spoil anything big here!).
Soon Tris and Four have new alleys and enemies. Their relationship is also put to a test when Tris risks her life over and over again to save the people she cares about.
As I said before, my expectations were high. Insurgent wasn’t a total let-down, but it also wasn’t what I hoped it would be.
I really missed the fact that Tris and Four were not in the Dauntless faction anymore. That to me was one of the most exciting things from the first book. Now they are rebelling against almost everyone, which is also cool and exciting, but different.
Still, I kept on reading. Not as fast as I did in Divergent, but pretty fast. Tris and Four remain interesting characters, and the war between them and Jeanine is going off in Insurgent. There are some major reveals and plottwists in Insurgent, which makes the book exciting to read.
I get why some people didn’t like the sequal to Divergent. It’s different, definitely not as good as the first book. But it was still worth the read, in my opinion.
