Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Insurgent by Veronica Roth
series: Divergent Trilogy, 2

Considering how much I liked Divergent (see post), it's no surprise that I enjoyed its sequel, Insurgent.

Insurgent continues the overarching storyline begun in Divergent. During the course of the novel readers learn more about the other factions (and the factionless) and how the groups relate to each other. We also get a better idea of how five-faction society functions as a whole and how and why it came into being.

Beatrice and her love interest from Divergent maintain their relationship1 and it continues to be complex and somewhat complicated.

On a side note, I love Insurgent's cover art. It's beautiful and compelling with great movement. It also echoes Divergent's cover in a nice way while still standing on its own legs.
  1. Good. I dislike nothing more than series that follow the new-installment-new-love-interest modus operandi.


  1. I do really like this cover although they've changed it now for more appeal for some reason! I will onyl read this if I find a copt by accident as I wasn't a fan of Divergent but still a little curious as to if it improves for me.

  2. I look forward to hearing your thoughts when you do get around to reading Insurgent, Ellie.
