Insurgent by Veronica Roth
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I give INSURGENT 3.5 stars.
I loved the story and feel like i would give 5 stars for the story and character angle the author went in. But the style of how she wrote it didn't seem to flow smoothly like DIVERGENT did. --I will have to reread DIVERGENT to make sure it wasn't written the same, but I don't remember noticing it so I think I am right to say it wasn't-- She gave us a scene and instead of finishing the scene off and smoothly lining us up for the next we got **** and a totally new scene. It was almost like she wrote the scenes as they came to her and instead of smoothing them all into a story she just plonked them into order an left it like that. It was like reading a tv show script. I just feel that we got ripped off a lot of story that we could of enjoyed more.
After saying all that I loved everything that went on with Tris, her journey of self discovery. Four/Tobias really annoyed me, he seemed to be on Tris' back most of the time. At one point I thought she should go for Uriah, which is something that would never cross my mind in DIVERGENT. Four did win me back with his last few sentences in the book. I just hope he stays that way in the next instalment. I don't like calling him Tobias, he will always be Four to me. maybe that why he was horrible in INSURGENT he was Tobias, not sweet Four.
