guy has long blonde waves andleaming teeth But not every Elena's Conquest girl finds that kind ofuy attractive either It doesn t have to be one or the other I would like a bit sexier description of him from time to time You know something that doesn t make it sound as though he looks like BeetlejuiceFor example most people wouldn t call Edward Scissorhands himself a classically handsome man If you tried to you could make some of Johnny Depp s characters sound pretty hideous in a text description but he somehow manages to transcend the Sister of My Heart gloomy and uniue nature of those characters and bring them to life in a way that makes them sexy and intriguing I just would like a little something like that in the description of Four in the future The Romance First off yes I still call him Four Tris switches off between calling him Four and Tobias in the book Lately I ve found myself calling him Tobias in my head but when I write it it usually ends up being Four I mean that s what he was called throughout almost the entire first novel but the name Tobias is starting torow on meTo be honest I was afraid that Tris and Four s relationship would King Alfred's Version of St. Augustine's Soliloquies go down the cookie cutter route I couldn t be thrilled with the direction their romance has taken They have real issues that they work through There is no angst purely for the sake angst It s all based on their present and past situations If you re looking for a lovey dovey pink fluffy unicorns dancing on rainbows kind of relationship then sorry but you won t find that here Sorry to burst your cotton candy bubbleum bubble And yes I know I m evil sly Rescuing Gus grinThere s angst and arguing but NO love triangle with the main character At least not one that was discernible to me If there was one it was a ninja assassin love triangle The Verdict LOVE LOVE LOVE I cannot wait toet my hands on the next book in this series Insurgent was an incredibly delicious exciting and emotional read But mostly it just flat out made an impact on meThe other night I was watching Merlin which has newly been added to my list of all time favorite TV shows and there was one particular moment where a character shows a redonkulous amount of bravery in a certain heartbreaking scene which cannot be named and I literally thought to myself That s so Dauntless That s the power of the world that Veronica Roth has created When a story becomes part of pop culture when it is so uniue and recognizable that it can be spoofed or merchandised and when it s terminology works its way into your everyday life that s when you see the true power of literature I believe that this is one of those storiesOh and by the way I want a T Shirt with the Dauntless faction symbol so someone Class of 92: Out of Our League get started on that ASAP snap snapThe winner of the Divergent and Insurgent PRIZE PACK has been announced on STRANGEMORECOM Check the Rafflecopter Widget to see the name of the winner FINALLY the book is out After months of waiting I managed to snag this book on the day of its release and thankoodness for thatWarning There will be no spoilers of Insurgent only of DivergentAfter having not been immersed in the Divergent world since the first book came out last year I had ualms about diving headfirst into Insurgent without refreshing myself with the basic
events that happened prior to the start of this novel However having neither the time nor the that happened prior to the start of this novel However having neither the time nor the for rereading a book with this novel However having neither the time nor the for REREADING A BOOK WITH THIS NEW a book with this new book lying in front of me I decided to be a Dauntless and take the risk small risk but hey it s the thought that countsMy first thought That rereading Divergent would have been unnecessary in the fact that Insurgent picked up right where Divergent left off and had enough continuity to it that I slowly but surely picked up all the dormant pieces of information that I needed to know for this book The action picks up right away and my worries for this book the middle book of this trilogy were completely blown away with the events that happen Oftentimes the second book of a trilogy slows down and loses some if not a lot of the pacing of the first book only for the climax and the denouement to pick up drastically in the finale Insurgent however did not disappoint me in that wayI loved so many things from this novel many of which I will point out belowSTRONG FEMALE LEAD Tris is a kickass sort of person and there s no denying that truth Not only is she Divergent but she s also a particularly strong type of Divergent which we had all the clues for in Divergent but were not pronounced clearly until now She is inherently strong but she isn t invulnerable she shows weakness when we expect her to just like any human and regardless of her Dauntless faction She s strong but she s not overly ambitious unlike Jeanine and other people who will rise up to power and take advantage of the chaos What sets her apart from others is that she has all the capabilities of a leader yet she shows enough humbleness and humility to know when to step down I was feeling iffy about the polarization of characteristics between the different factions but Tris s multiple affinities make her well rounded and admirable for what she chooses to do instead of what she can do with the capabilities she hasFOCUS OF THE NOVELCome on I didn t read Insurgent for its romance It s obviously a perk of course but the romance between Tobias and Tris isn t the main focus of the novel not at all The conspiracies the conspiracies within the conspiracies and the struggle between choosing what feels right and what logically is right is oftentimes employed here that makes you want to read further and further to see who s really the Portrait of a Starter: An Unhidden Story gooduy And then somewhere along the way you realize that the How the West Was Lost: Fifty Years of Economic Folly--and the Stark Choices Ahead gooduy may not be the nicest uy I think Roth aptly puts this to justice when she writes And while he has done cruel evil things our society is not divided into ood and bad Cruelty does not make a person dishonest the same way bravery does not make a person kind The multilayers to every action and every character makes you stop and think of the macro events which is what I believe books should truly be aboutREALISTIC OUTCOMES AND PLOT DEVICES THAT MAKE YOU WIDE EYED FOR MOREStemming from what I said earlier about events that occur in this book I just want to say that Roth really does know how to set her pacing for the trilogy well Just reading the revelations that each page brings shows the careful thought and planning that was placed into the creation of the Divergent world People you thought you could trust to be on the ood side suddenly aren t so clear any everyone falls into some ray fuzzy area on where their loyalties lie The aptness of the adage the road to hell is often paved with ood intentions fits in with this world and many people think that the end justifies the means of their actions This strikes out to me not only for the complexity it brings. U distopijskom Čikagu podeljenom na pet frakcija dugogodišnji mir je trajno poremećen brutalnim napadom Učenih na Nesebične Neustrašivi su podeljeni Kome će se prikloniti Čestiti i da li će Miroljubivi i dalj.
Veronica Roth Ë 9 SummaryGes So what was Tris doing for the other 500 pages Not a damn thing No scratch that Spock tells me that is inaccurate Tris was in fact doing something She was off being selfless trying to et herself killed so that no one else would die Bella is that you I didn t know you did Dystopias now That irritated me to no end At one point she turns herself into the Erudite because they threatened to kill off people until Divergent started surrendering So of course Tris thinks it has to be her and sneaks off to Fallen Angel: The Passion of Fausto Coppi give herself up before the Dauntless can form a plan Now let s think about this logically Tris knows the Erudite want to experiment on her for a Divergent proof serum Which means people would be enslaved andor killed because of her turning herself in facepalm Then she almost dies but it was too late because I had run out of fucks by then So I had to shake Spock down for some What do you mean you re out of fucks One of us has to care if Tris lives or dies The EndingOkay lots of spoilers here folks Spoilers all around from this point onI didn t like the ending I felt cheated because I had hung on for the ending Everyone said how it made up for the rest of the book and what not but here s the thing The ending couldn t make up for all the angst filled fluff the rest of the book was stuffed with I didn t feel the anticipation throughout the novel and I hate to admit that I was really tempted to skim The villan was killed really fast without much of a fight I always hate when that happens The villan has beeniving the characters hell all throughout the story and by the time their number is up they beg for their life and die by a simple stab woundYes if you kill me you ll never find the informationstabby stabinsert blood and stuffUGH I M MELTINGdies Still no fucks I see That s cold bro And the big secret wasn t anything you couldn t have uessed from Divergent It s revealed that the world is in chaos outside of the fence Murders destruction etc The weird thing is that I actually forgot about their society being enclosed in the fence until it was brought up near the end It totally slipped my mind But I digress The entire point of their society was to be a fresh start to the world Somehow by boxing people in these Factions and waiting for the Divergent to emerge that euates to saving humanity I m not exactly sure how that works since the book just ends with that revelation and the Acknowledgements rolled But I feel like Roth wrote herself all the way to a deserted island sent up her SOS signal and that cliffhanger fell right out of the sky to the rescue sigh I really hate cliffhangers It was one of the things that I liked about Divergent For the most part things were tied up but with Insurgent It s uite the mess we ll be walking into in book threeWill I read the next book Yes because I ve come this far and I m hoping I will enjoy book three as much as I enjoyed Divergent I think Insurgent suffers from Second Book Syndrome and the infamous Hype Train may it die in a fire the Hype Train not the book But ultimately I m interested in how Roth will explain away everything Maybe then this whole series will make perfect logical sense to me Until then drink time SpockMore reviews and shenanigans at Cuddlebuggery Book Blog Well I definitely like the title Divergent better than Insurgent Sounds a bit like InsuranceWow eight likes Maybe people have had some bad experience with insurance DunnoTEN LIKESOO OO OO I love that face There are so many different combinations XDEleven Whoa OO I don t understand this My review isn t at the top of the review page is it It s very cool though D Thanks everyoneOh my word Fourteen likes oo OO

at the library I have to wait like for ages sobsUPDATE READOh my oshit washow do I even begin to review this bookIt was first of all awesome I am so thankful that Roth didn t install a love triangle I hate those But all of the hopes I had for Will still being alive were crushed The cover has the tree symbolizing Amity on it and for pretty ood reason Tris for reasons which you will have to read yourself spends a ood deal of time in the Amity headuarters compound complex and you ot to know their faction better The leadership system is uite interesting they don t really have one I actually think being Amity wouldn t be too bad view spoilerExcept not the fact that they put drugs or whatever in their bread hide spoiler People I have discovered are layers and layers of secrets Umm no honey You re thinking of something else Of the three books this book is the long neglected and likely disturbed middle child Not as fun as the first nor as smart as the third Doesn t contribute or stand out Essentially it s just there staring at us and wanting us to notice it The plot Tris Co are betrayed run to a new faction cue long description of new factionfaction life Tris Co are betrayedrun to new factionetc Literally the whole book is Tris running around of the Divergent world It s like Veronica spent too much time designing these factions and didn t want the effort to o to wastehence we et the rand tour Well I shouldn t say that s all we etwe also Beautiful Ghosts getems like this Killing you is not the worst thing they can do to you I say Controlling you is You could completely skip this novel and not miss a thing for the third Oh wait They do use the classic Alexandra, Gone government knew of everything and manipulated every possible thing toet this exact outcome LovelyMy favorite part When Veronica Roth assumed we were too stupid to understand the title Insurgent he says Noun A person who acts in opposition to the established authority who is not necessarily regarded as a belligerent Mind Freaking Blown YouTube Blog Instagram Twitter Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading Come on Insurgent What Insurgent he says Noun A person who acts in opposition to the established authority who is not necessarily regarded as a belligerent I look at Fernando The last time I broke into a faction s headuarters I did it with a A Year in 120 Recipes gun in my hand and I left bodies behind me I want this time to be different I need this time to be different I like it I say Insurgent It s perfect Once again I find myself with mixed views over a book Middle books are usually filled with landscape designing set up and transition for the next book so I usually didn t expect much from them But Divergent is far from usual And it s ending Let just say the expectation to the second book was set pretty high I admit there were so many things I forgot about in this series I had trouble remembering who was who like with Trisuilt for killing Will I can t freaking remember who s Will was To my defense Divergent was blindly fast pace and with a year ap between the two books it s a bit disorienting for Insurgent to immediately jumping right in Insurgent started directly after where the first book left us Will s right in Insurgent started directly after where the first book left us Will s Tris parents deaths and the destruction of Dauntless and Abnegation with Tris Four Marcus Four s father and Peter all on the run It picks up exactly where it ended on the trainThe first part of the story was already full of action And comparing the amount of actions in this book to the first one Better not because this will ive you no pause for time out There is also a The Devil Hath Been Raised: A Documentary History of the Salem Village Witchcraft Outbreak of March 1692; Together With a Collection of Newly Located and Gathered Witchcraft Documents great sense of unease and unknown As the book progresses there are events that complicate and confuse me that It made the pace kind of slow But the worst was me keepuessing what s the unimaginable scary thing outside the fence that they kept secret all the time I really can t Boudica: The Life and Legends of Britain's Warrior Queen get that out of my mind the whole time I m reading this It s frustrating like Tris annoying character in hereInsurgent has lots of loopholes and unpolished side that to my opinion is not that noticeable if you didn tive it too damn time to criticize Veronica writes with a believable heroine I kind of hated Tris character in here but it still believable none the less I still like this book and still super like this series The shifts ear of the ending was a major WHOA And the other major thing that I really like is the It don t have love triangle drama That my friends is a major plus for me Post from Veronica Roth s blog about her 2nd bookINSURGENTThis post really wouldn t be complete without a dictionary definition so here it is INSURGENT Origin1755 65 Latin insurgent stem of insurg ns present participle of insurgere to et up ascend rebel1 a person who rises in forcible opposition to lawful authority especially a person who engages in armed resistance to a overnment or to the execution of its laws rebel2 a member of a section of a political party that revolts against the methods or policies of the party3 one that acts contrary to the established leadership as of a political party union or corporation or its decisions and policies4 international law a person or roup that rises in revolt against an established Buddhism: Introducing the Buddhist Experience government or authority but whose conduct does not amount to belligerencyNot all of those definitions are eually applicable to the book some are spot on than others But I won t tell you which ones yetNow all I have to do is finish Back to the writing caveNow my friends if you haven t read Divergent yet well turn off that darn screen and run the hell out of your house and buy that freaking book and READ IT NOWSuper love the title. Jskog serijala otkrijte kakva se neočekivana savezništva pripremaju koje će dugo skrivane tajne isplivati šta čeka malu populaciju Divergentnih i – da li su otpadnici oni koji su van frakcija sada najjača snag. To the series but also the reality of the situation that no matter how much you re a part of Abnegation in the end human instincts demand that you take a look at therand scheme of things and figure out how you re oing to survive It s not necessarily saying that people are inherently bad or ood it s just that everyone takes action for their own survival and that ultimately pits people against each other both realistic and true Who you trust ends up affecting what actions you take and uoted from Roth People I have discovered are layers and layers of secrets You believe you know them that you understand them but their motives are always hidden from you buried in their own hearts You will never know them but sometimes you decide to trust them Roth doesn t hesitate to pull out all the stops with layers upon layers of events that make Tris change her mind about which course of action to take countless times It s the sort of thing that makes your brain freak with the constant flow of new information while it simultaneously processes what it just learnedCHARACTERS nuff said You don t find multifaceted characters easily and every single one of these characters has something to contribute to the Divergent world as a whole Remember it s a society where things were always a specific way when a huge wave of reform is about to strike violently at you It s a time of strife and war something that most of us in first world countries can t comprehend on a personal level I uote an example from Isabel Allende here Once my daughter said to me that feminism was dated that I should move on Feminism is dated Yes for privileged women like my daughter but not for most of our sisters in the rest of the world who are still forced into premature marriage prostitution forced labor In such a setting chaos is everywhere and I can t stress how ood it was reading about the diversity of people who at the end of the day all wanted to just survive ENDINGI would be cautious of reading Insurgent if I were you The ending was the most terrible horrible jaw dropping cliffhanger that I ve read in a while We don t even have a specific date to look forward for the third book either I can t well yes I can but you understand my shock believe that Roth would put us through such misery of revealing such a huge closely uarded secret the truth of all truths to Divergent and then end it right when chaos breaks out Such a tease and such a brilliant move That ll keep us fans holding on for sureWould I recommend this book Heck yes without a single doubt It s A Grant County Collection: Indelible, Faithless and Skin Privilege got action suspense adventure mystery and romance packed into it and it was both cleverly and well executed I couldn t ask for of a novel and I sincerely thank Roth for sharing it with usThe pre review I had posted thatathered all the likes to this reviewWHO REVIEWED IT ALREADY I m tempted to ive death lares to any that did because at this point Success giving it a rating is just petty hate mail Judging by the average rating for the first book and the FACT THAT THE SECOND BOOK ISN T EVEN OUT FOR ARCs YET there should be no ratings How can you rate a book based on what you re anticipating it to beWhat it s rated now is by no means true since we don t even know what the book is about 45 starsWhen I first read Divergent I was awed I loved it and I really enjoyed it However there was this small part of me that just cannot acknowledge that this series could be like most reviews had said leveled with The Hunge I want toive a big old round of applause to HarperTEEN and their insane marketing campaign Bravo That is not mockery but a legit salute I sincerely have to ive it up to you for convincing me that I had to own this book I was caught up and boarded the Twitter hype train as it drove me round and round the blogosphere s Factions BTW I still don t know who drives the damn train So by the time I stepped into my local bookstore and laid eyes on Insurgent I happily handed over my 1799 I wasn t thinking logically It was as if I was under a simulation HAHAHA Did you see what I did thereAnd that ending Ugh
I I need a moment Let me just stop myself right here before I end up writing a really negative and 1 starring one of the most anticipated books of 2012 But know I am displeased VERY Just look at how long it took me to finish the book What a shame The most anticipated book of 2012 is my most disappointing read so far After all the positive reviews I read I knew for sure I d love it Unfortunately it didn t work out that way I was conflicted on whether to ive this book one or two stars In the end Insurgent s saving A Village Affair / A Passionate Man / The Rector's Wife grace is that it simply doesn t belong with some of my other one starred books So I feel I must warn whoever stumbles across this review If this is one of your favorite series and you love it with the burning passion of a supernova this review might have the potential to piss you off It might be best for both you and I if you just hit the back button now before thingset Pea's Book of Best Friends going Go on Spock and I will waitwhistlesOh you re staying huh Well strap yourself in because I have a feeling it might just be one of those reviewsSpock tells me this review must contain mild spoilers in order to logically explain this illogical novel Sorry kids Spock s callThe first big negative right off the bat was that Insurgent picks up directly after Divergent left off There is virtually no recap to the story or characters and if you read the book a year ago well you may be screwed But thankfully Roth wrote up a lovely little cheat sheet for just this purpose Yay However the problem doesn t just lie with remembering names It lies with the connection the reader may or may not have had with the characters in Divergent which was now non existent since I could barely remember who was who What s that you say So and so justot shot in the head I m sorry I can t find a single fuck to The Nightingale Of Peshawar: Selections From Rahman Baba give Then we are introduced to even characters So not only do I have to attempt to remember the old characters but I have to keep track of these newbies too That s just way too much work Obviously this isn t really Insurgent s fault but I thought it would helpful to point this outThe PlotWhat happened here What happened to the action packed dystopian series I was introduced to in Divergent Where the hell was Tris and why was Bella playing her role Why did Four suddenly update his Facebook status to Douche Bag Who s idea was it to turn Insurgent into a Dystopian Romance One thing I loved about Divergent was that the romance took a back seat to the story and action But in Insurgent the action is scattered with a heavier focus on Tris and Four s relationship Look that is not what I signed up for I really don t care if Four loves Tris or if they ll end up riding a unicorn that poops rainbows as they ride off into the sunset Whatever whatever whateverSo the Erudite are trying to take over their world by creating a new serum for those that are Divergent while the Factionless plan a rebellion But all that usually happens in the background with occasional mention to keep the reader up to date Most of the novel we are stuck in Tris head as sheoes into angst mode over Four her parents and Will It was so boring I felt like I was stuck in a throwback episode of As the World Turns On repeat Save me But wait We have a random plot twist at the end right before the battle is about to o down Marcus Four s abusive father decides to enlist Tris to help him retrieve information stolen from Abnegation He tells her it s super secret and that he can t tell her what it is because it s something you have to see that she ll just have to trust him Doing so would betray Four She agreesWait PauseTris hates Marcus Tris loves Four Tris doesn t know what information they would be retrieving She also doesn t know if Marcus is telling her the truth She has absolutely no reason to believe him No real evidence to back up his claim She agrees Without muchI I I need a moment Let me just stop myself right here before I end up writing a really negative
Tris is supposed have an aptitude for Erudite right She s supposed to be logical RIGHT Tris pack your bags I think Spock has just voted you off the islandThat makes no sense And then when I found out the super big secret uess what He could have easily told her I smell and easy plot cop out folks The secret is kept long enough from the reader just so it can push you off theThought Tris Is Supposed
cliff on the last pageWorld BuildingIn Divergent I let a lot slide and roll off me because I wason the last pageWorld BuildingIn Divergent I let a lot slide and roll off me because I was throughout the entire book I m known to do that with a lot of books like Wither and Across the Universe for example I could not do it with Insurgent You see I have the attention span of a fruit fly If I m not fully engaged in the book I m The Geek Manifesto: Why Science Matters to Government (mini ebook) going to notice things Things I probably wouldn t care too much about if I were enjoying myself Like how the Erudite wearlasses just because they re smart Or how even though Tris is emotionally unbalanced 16 year old everyone still looks to her to analyze the situation Or even how impossible I find these factions How is it that you can put all of these traits into neat little boxes and ask a person to choose one over the others This is the same problem I had with The Hunt In both novels the author tries to pitch an idea of human behavior completely different from what reality is but you can clearly see the flaws with it However the main character fully believes in that world and way of thinking They try to rationalize it convince you of it Yes I realize it s a Dystopian novel but this is a hard concept to sell because it makes it difficult for me to sympathize with the main character their conflicted feelings and understand their world Believability is key for me and I have a hard time believing this world Tris freuently switches back and forth between her Dauntless Erudite and Abnegation sides Other characters comment on her embracing one trait depending on what the situation calls for it But this doesn t work for me Real talk you can t just put logical thinking back in the toy chest when you decide you don t want to play with it any It doesn t work like that At least I don t think so SpockI m The Wish Maker getting no ish vibesTrisThis seriesets a lot of comparisons to The Hunger Games and in a way I can see why You have your young The Regiment: The Real Story of the SAS girl who one way or another plays an important part in bringing forth change to her society And if I really had to compare the two I d say that Insurgent is like Mockingjay Tris is depressed struggling to hold it together and fight in the war The difference comes into play when Tris borderlineives up while Katniss kicked ass until the very end I m not saying Tris didn t have the right to be depressed because I do believe she did But it was really over done for me I felt like I was drowning in her angst This book is over 500 pages long and most of the action doesn t even show up to the party until the last 30 pa.
