Kishaz Reading Corner: Insurgent by Veronica Roth

About the Book

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.

Here's what I'm giving it:

Rating: 4 stars

Here's why:

For the longest time, I had trouble reading a dystopian novel. It wasn't that I didn't try or that I had any inherent dislike for the genre. No, it was more along the lines of trying and failing to sink into the characters and setting the author was trying to provide.

Roth's series has given me hope that there are other dystopian novels that I might find enjoyable.

Her style of writing and character development brought me running to the table for seconds. Insurgent, did not disappoint. With as much action, suspense, and thought-provoking questions as the first, I became a true believer in the dish she was serving.

Watching the growth of the characters as well as surprise twists with some others made me enjoy the ride even more.

Would I recommend this book? Yes, I would. Heading toward the last book in the trilogy. Can't wait to see how it all ends.
