It’s very hard to review the second book in a trilogy without giving spoilers.
So I’ll tell you what: I won’t review it. I’ll just tell you a few things that won’t give anything away, and then you’ll just be so interested, you’ll get the series.
Or at least books 1 (Divergent) and 2 (Insurgent) since 3 (Allegiant) isn’t out yet.
Anyway, Insurgent is the second book in the Divergent trilogy. The series is YA dystopian, with people divided into different factions based on personality traits.
Insurgent continues on with the story from the first book, and is no less entertaining than the first. Seriously, I am so excited for the third book to come out.
Here are two quotes, that piqued my interest, and which in no way give away anything from the story:
- “It is for the sake of peace that we remain uninvolved” – I can’t tell you who said this, but it kind of reminded me of the conundrum that countries faced during WWII or even when thinking of bullying. Is it peaceful to remain uninvolved if something bad is happening? I don’t think so.
- “Sometimes I feel like I am collecting the lessons each faction has to teach me, and storing them in my mind like a guidebook for moving through the world. There is always something to learn, always.” – Again, not going to mention the “who” but this quote really represents how I feel. I’m always interested in learning new and unique facts, trying to be a better person by looking at situations from multiple angles, hoping that in the end, I’ll be a better person for it. It kind of sums up myself as a reader.
Again, if you’re a fan of The Hunger Games trilogy, the Divergent trilogy is not to be missed!
Have you started reading the series yet?
