Overview: Insurgent

The epigraph to Insurgent says 'Like a wild animal, the truth is too powerful to remain caged.' All of the characters in the novel are affected by truth and linked with it are various other factors. Insurgent, written by Veronica Roth, is part of a series � the Divergent Trilogy. Divergent, the first book of the trilogy, was published on the 25th April, 2011. Insurgent, the second book, was published on the 1st of May, 2012 in hardcover by Katherine Tegen Books and Harper Collins. The third book in the series � Allegiant, was published on October 22, 2013. All of the three are best-selling books and belong to the genre of science fiction.

The book depicts how courage, bravery, friendship, betrayal, rebellion, romance and heroism bring along changes in the society � for good or bad. In the first book, it is depicted that the city of Chicago in the future has been divided into five clans, each based on a certain virtue. The protagonist Tris, born Beatrice Prior, is part of the Abnegation clan, which is meant for the selfless people. However, she is tested with uniform aptitude for multiple clans and thus becomes a �Divergent�. Tris then chooses to leave her birth clan to be part of the Dauntless clan. In the second book, Veronica Roth describes Tris's journey and the unavoidable circumstances that she is required to face, thereby leading her towards the truth � the secret that the Abnegation leaders has been trying to protect. However, the truth remains untold in Insurgent, and is continued in its sequel. In addition to telling the tale of the brewing war between the clans, Insurgent is also about how a choice can make or break a person and also about the importance of making a choice.

While Publisher Weekly terms the book as a �necessary bridge� and also mentions that the author has a �subtle way� of writing. Insurgent won the Goodreads Choice Awards as the Favorite Young Adult Fantasy & Science Fiction. It was also nominated for Teen book of the year by the Children's Choice Book Awards. The book has 576 pages and the ISBN 10 for the edition is 0007442920 and ISBN 13 for it is 0007442920.

  1.  I actually liked it! 27 December, 2013 On
    Insurgent is an engaging sequel to Divergent, where the society is divided into several factions. It follows where the other book left off, so a recap was necessary if you haven't read the book in a while.

    Tris and Tobias are on a train following the aftermath of the end of Divergent. The Erudite have broken out into a war on the Abnegation and it's up to the Dauntless loyals to stop them from controlling every faction. They meet up with friends and foes along the way, and it turns into an all-out political war between the rest of the factions.

    As with any great debut, I find many of us had high expectations when it came to Insurgent. While I enjoyed the book, I think it tried too hard to be like Hunger Games 2 & 3, setting up a political backlash for an undoubtedly explosive finale. While Divergent had an extremely tight knit plot, as it focused on Tris and her initiation into the Dauntless, halfway through this one I still wasn't sure where the plot was going.

    There was a large focus on the secondary characters (view spoiler) and I had a hard time recalling who many of them were, especially since they did not receive a big focus from the first one. In this one, Tris also struggles with the guilt and mourning left from the aftermath of the first book, and it affects her relationship with Four. She's definitely not in a happy place, and it's apparent throughout this book.

    However, Insurgent definitely brings about some deeper insights, as did Divergent. It flirts with the possibility of living without factions, and as Tris herself thought "How will we know what to do without factions?" The glimpses of the world built within Insurgent appear here and there, and by the end of the book, we're left with a lot of questions.

    What each faction values also appears to be their Achilles heel; while the Dauntless may be brave they are also brawn without brains, while the Amity are peaceful they do nothing to prevent the war when it starts breaking out, and while the Erudite are smart they do not have the ability to act without thinking.

    My feelings are that Insurgent was great for showing more about the fascinating world that Roth has created, and setting up the last in the trilogy, but it is not as well-focused as Divergent. I found it enjoyable, and no doubt look forward to the concluding book.
