Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Recently I posted about Divergent – the first book in the trilogy.  This is the second.  And I've figured out why I enjoyed it so much despite the violence.

The violence is very deftly handled – almost has a cartoon quality – a bit like Janet Evanovich's approach in her Stephanie Plum books.  And in the future there are some very quick and effective fixes for injuries which also lessens any potential gruesomeness.

The second book, if anything, was even better.  I'm sure some people very seriously analyse the meaning behind the factions and what happens – but I just treated it as a fast paced exciting ride.

If you, like me, are late to this party – do give it a go.  And best of all, the third book – Allegiant – is waiting for me at the library.


  1. I still need to read Allegiant. Thanks for the nudge!

  2. I was so bummed to hear that they decided not to make #3 (Allegiant) into a movie. The book series is great.
