INSURGENT by Veronica Roth is the sequel to DIVERGENT. It follows the deterioration of a futuristic government. In this society people are separated into different factions depending on personality type. They are born into a faction, but on their sixteenth birthday they may choose to change factions. However, they are contained from the rest of the world (if there is anything else left we don't know) and this story follows the society trying to figure out what is on the other side of the fence.
It was a good read, but MANY continuity issues. (and caution! Mild spoilers if you have not read EITHER Divergent or Insurgent!!!!!) At one point Tris confronts someone: (from her point of view) "...and I scramble to my feet, draw my gun, and point it at her, all with out thinking." Well girl, Ms. Roth was clearly not thinking of your PTSD from shooting one of your best friends when she wrote this. And hmmm...you never had a gun to begin with....but wait there's more! This quote..."I hear tapping on the window and jerk my head to the side, for a split second believing that it is Fernando trying to get in. But it's just rain." Let's remember back a few pages shall we when your friend - oh that's right!- BLEW THE FREAKING GLASS OUT OF ALL THE WINDOWS!!!!!!! "[the device] bounces onto the windowsill and rolls into the glass . . . all at once the window - and the windows above, below, and next to it - shatters into hundreds of tiny pebbles..." OK, yeah. Veronica seriously, how can you forget something like that. Honestly, I read it and I was like "GIIIIRRRL wassup wit you. Those windows are gone sweetheart." But nevertheless we encounter another continuity problem. After Tris's little act with the mystery appearing gun, it has dissipated! "It's only there, in the midst of chaos, that I realize I forgot the stunner [a new weapon since she can't hold a gun with out breaking down] in the empty classroom. I am unarmed again." Seriously, what happened to that EFFING GUN!!!! This is for reals people. Please, please comment and correct me if I have missed something, but this is just, well, sloppy.
As for the rest of the book, too many characters, too many mood swings. But whateves. Good read. LOTS of romantic scenes between Tris and Four/Tobias. That's all I have to say...I recommend this book if you like Sci-Fi (which I LOOOOOVVVEEEE!).
