Katherine Tegen Books, 1, - Young Adult Fiction - pages A hit with both teen and adult readers, Insurgent is the action-packed, emotional adventure that inspired the major motion picture starring Shailene Read full review. Insurgent is a science fiction young adult novel by American novelist Veronica Roth and the second book in the Divergent trilogy.

In their quest to find support, Tris and her friends are sorely tested.

Friends become enemies. Secret alliances and truths come to light. And even the bond between Tris and Tobias might not be enough to withstand the forces that threaten to tear them apart.

So, all cards on the table: I was not as enamored with Insurgent as I was its predecessor. First, the good.

I love that the book begins immediately following the dramatic conclusion of Divergent, with Tris, Tobias and their ragtag group of survivors seeking help and nursing their wounds. As a character, Tris is deeply hurt, not just physically with her shoulder injury, but with the consequences of her actions after killing a good friend — a secret that she guards very closely from Tobias and everyone else.

Tris, in turn, locks down and tries to protect herself from future pain, even from the boy she to whom she so desperately needs to open up. Roth's terse and clipped writing style keeps the story ripping along at breakneck speed, a prose style as utilitarian and unadorned as the world it describes. One does find oneself wishing there was more description in places, but Roth's style works well for her genre.

The only other occasionally bothersome element to the story was the relationship between Tris and Tobias, which features some artificial tension to ramp up the conflict in the story.

Divergent, Insurgent and Allegiant

Otherwise, the novel was spectacular, with enough narrative twists and turns to keep anyone happy. The structure of the novel may be Roth's best strength in this installment, as Beatrice's travels take her through all five factions and the factionless, without being able to belong in any of them. The thematic implication being that humans are more complex than the societal boxes we try to put ourselves and each other into, a theme also present in Divergent, artfully executed.

Highly recommended. I never thought about it that way before, and now that seems foolish. Instead I take the lead, Tobias silent at my side, and though he does not touch me, he steadies me.

Pinpricks of light are the first sign that we are nearing Amity headquarters. Then squares of light that turn into glowing windows.

A cluster of wooden and glass buildings. Before we can reach them, we have to walk through an orchard. My feet sink into the ground, and above me, the branches grow into one another, forming a kind of tunnel. Dark fruit hangs among the leaves, ready to drop.

The sharp, sweet smell of rotting apples mixes with the scent of wet earth in my nose. He leads us past the first building to the second one on the left.

All the buildings except the greenhouses are made of the same dark wood, unpainted, rough.

I hear laughter through an open window. The contrast between the laughter and the stone stillness within me is jarring.

Marcus opens one of the doors. I would be shocked by the lack of security if we were not at Amity headquarters.

They often straddle the line between trust and stupidity. In this building the only sound is of our squeaking shoes. Marcus stops before an open room, where Johanna Reyes, representative of Amity, sits, staring out the window.Back at Candor, Four confronts Tris, telling her that she is being reckless with her life, and that they are finished if she continues to act as such.

Insurgent review - Veronica Roth

I love how the factions are this weird combination of a gang, an entire culture of dress and style, mannerisms and education training for a job. Tris is again overcome by grief and guilt. Tori calls Tris a traitor and attempts to have her taken into custody, while Four confronts her about aligning with Marcus.

I breathe out, and the pressure is still there. Most of the novel we are stuck in Tris' head as she goes into angst mode over Four, her parents and Will. I'm not saying Tris didn't have the right to be depressed because I do believe she did.
