Editorial Reviews

Review

“The next big thing.” (Rolling Stone)

“Roth knows how to write. The novel’s love story, intricate plot, and unforgettable setting work in concert to deliver a novel that will rivet fans of the first book.” (Publishers Weekly)

“In this addictive sequel to the acclaimed Divergent,a bleak post-apocalyptic Chicago collapses into all-out civil war. Another spectacular cliffhanger. Anyone who read the first book was dying for this one months ago; they’ll hardly be able to wait for the concluding volume.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Insurgent explores several critical themes, including the importance of family and the crippling power of grief at its loss. A very good read.” (School Library Journal)

It has plot twists and a cliff hang at the end!

First, to clarify a few points:

I love Veronica Roth. I read Divergent when it first came out in 2011. A few months later, I read it aloud to my younger brother, perhaps bowdlerizing some of the kissing scenes in order to minimize the "ew" factor (in my experience ten-year-old boys are not particularly fond of lip-locking scenes). I loved the character exploration, the issues the protagonists are forced to handle and resolve, the moral dilemmas, etc. More than anything, I loved the opportunity the book provided for my brother and me to discuss something aside from Super Smash Bros. or Phineas and Ferb (not that I have anything against Phineas and Ferb).

As such, I could hardly wait to read Insurgent. I primarily loved Divergent because it didn't fall into the tropes that often clutter YA. I feel as if some YA authors don't respect their audience. Many of the YA books I read have glaring plot holes; stunningly poor character development, the characters reduced to flimsy stereotypes; and - my own pet peeve - idiotic adults who must be "saved" by the brilliant, freethinking teenage protagonists - a sentiment I feel only caters to frustrated teens' contempt for their own parents.

Thus, I had high expectations for Insurgent. I fully admit it might be these overblown expectations that caused Insurgent disappoint me so deeply.

*spoilers below*

As other reviewers have mentioned, I had trouble accepting the fact that after being subjected to mind control and involuntary murder, so many Dauntless would willingly join the Erudite. The Dauntless don't seem like people who would easily forgive someone for stealing their freedom and turning them into mindless robots. Yet they voluntarily return to the Erudite when they awaken from their robot-state.

Format: Hardcover
Roth pens an exciting sequel filled with unexpected twists and suspenseful turns with "Insurgent." The Erudite's simulations have devastated the Abnegation and Dauntless factions. Dauntless prepares to regroup, but Tris realizes Erudite's actions were motivated by a secret Abnegation has been keeping. Dare she discover what it is?

Set in the distant future, the book picks up where "Divergent" left off. The Dauntless not under the influence of Erudite's simulation, seek a safe haven with the Amity. From there, they take over their old facility. But Tris, being Divergent, realizes things aren't what they seem. Why does Amity keep the community locked in and what secret is Tobias' father hiding? Dauntless calls for new elections. War with Erudite seems unavoidable, but it is the right thing to do? If Jeanine of Erudite dies, is Evelyn Easton of the factionless a wise choice as leader? Tris struggles for answers in the face of heart pounding action. What will happen when Abnegation's secret is revealed?

Roth's writing is easy to read. She effortlessly draws the reader into Tris's futuristic world. The plot moves fast, keeping the reader on their toes. Roth's characters continue to inspire. Tris realizes there's meaning to Jeanine's actions. Tobias' is loyal to his beliefs, despite constant testing and Christina learns the power of forgiveness. Most of all, the characters learn that just about anything can happen. It's how one deals with those situations, which defines them.

Unlike other sequels or middle books, "Insurgent" is a worthy follow up to "Divergent." The action will leave you breathless. The characters will mesmerize you, and the plot is full of twists and turns. Insurgent's ending is that rare ending that delivers and leaves the reader hungry for the next book, Allegiant. I recommend this story for readers 12 and up. Insurgent will take you on a wild, nail-biting roller coaster ride.

I loved Divergent and I couldn't wait for Insurgent to come out, but now I'm finding Insurgent unpleasant to read, and it took me ages to get beyond the opening chapters. (Things do pick up later.)

[ONE] I wanted to re-bond with the characters but the opening doesn't offer anything to grip onto. The book starts with a cast of characters (rather than individual characters) who are not really speaking to each other, and not really doing anything except waiting. They all have a shell-shocked attitude with emotional numbness. (Do they all have to deal with trauma uniformly?)

[TWO] Insurgent is unreadable unless you've read Divergent recently. The author expects readers to remember everything from Divergent. I do agree that most sequel books have too much catch-up. Often a summary of the previous book is pasted artlessly onto the opening of the second book. That's very annoying too. With Insurgent the pendulum has swung too far in the opposite direction, and the author doesn't provide even single words reminding the reader of anything in the previous book. I don't need paragraphs and paragraphs of backstory, I just need to have something evoke what I already absorbed from the previous book. I remember my mental image of the boyfriend and my mental image of the brother, but I don't remember their literal names. The word brother could have been slipped into the text very smoothly without disrupting the flow. For people who remember the names but not the images, a little bit of description would have been possible. Instead I'm reading a pseudo-profound passage where the shell-shocked girl is touching the shoulder of a shell-shocked guy, and the pseudo-poignancy is totally lost on me because the author refuses to say whether this guy is her brother or her boyfriend.
