Insurgent (Paperback)

Veronica Roth

-   11 years +

After the events of previous novel Divergent, Tris is racked by guilt and is struggling to adapt to her new future. She's heard the whispers and rumours but is determined to find out just what the new world's truth really is...

With more shocking choices and sacrifices ahead, she will have to be stronger than ever. A dark slice of dystopian fiction from Queen of Teen-shortlisted author Veronica Roth, Insurgent is a must-read Young Adult novel that will appeal to fans of the Hunger Games, the 5th Wave and Blood Red Road.

With a romantic aspect also at the forefront, this is a gripping read that takes so many twists and turns. The film adaptation of Insurgent, starring The Fault in Our Stars' Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, as well as Jai Courtney, Kate Winslet and Theo James, was a massive hit, so we highly recommend you read the book as well!

Reader review: Insurgent - Paperback - 9780007442928

Following on from the events in Divergent, Insurgent focuses on Tris's struggle to adapt to her new life as a member of the Dauntless faction. She accidently discovers a terrible plot by the rebel Erudite to take over the world by injecting everyone so they can be controlled as they enter a simulated reality. Tris needs all of her talents to save everyone she loves. Insurgent presents a very outlandish future, where everything, from the structure of society to what is considered right or wrong, differs from today. I took a while to get into the story as I hadn't read the first book in the series and the plot was a bit formulaic at first - especially for an aficionado of dystopian fiction like me! Despite this, I found myself easily immersed in Tris's world and feelings - from the gory and exciting battle scenes to her more human grief at the loss of her family. The ending is truly amazing - full of excitement, danger, treachery, love, hope and sorrow. I'm already immersed in Divergent and can't wait for the next in the series!
