Insurgent

by Veronica Roth

As much as I liked Divergent, the sequel was better.

Insurgent starts off running and never slows. I read it in two days at a time when I don’t have time to read.

Tris and Tobias have to continue to fight against friends and enemies. They don’t know who to trust and the plot continually twists relationships on their heads. We meet some new people and get to know the old even better. Tris learns to tell the truth about what she has been through and to trust her instincts.

I love a book with a strong female protagonist. Tris kicks butt. She doesn’t let anyone keep her down and she is courageous and strong through incredible happenings. Her relationship with Tobias is refreshingly anti-twilight: two strong individuals who take equal part, who have opinions and fights and value things outside each other. They believe in their causes and have  to reconcile that with each other.

The book is tense and suspenseful. It builds until the very last page and then leaves you hanging. It is beautifully written, a must-read.
