Veronica Roth graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in creative writing. While she was a student, she often chose to work on the story that would become Divergent instead of doing her homework.

It was indeed a transforming choice. Now a full-time writer, Ms Roth lives near Chicago. The third and final book in The Divergent Trilogy, ALLEGIANT, will come out on October 22, 2013.

In the meantime she will spend endless hours browsing Wikipedia in her pajamas as she eats corn flakes.

  • amazing scenes that tore me apart with emotions.

    by on

    I really enjoyed Divergent so I was really looking forward to reading Insurgent and I wasn't disappointed. I have written this view on the assumption that you have read Divergent. So in saying that, this review contains spoilers from Divergent. If you have read my review of Divergent you might recall that I mentioned that I couldn't connect with the characters, but something changed in Insurgent.

    I connected with Tris and Four. I felt their emotions. I liked that Tris becomes a lot stronger in this book. She stands up for herself and for Four, especially to Marcus, but we also get to see her grief and I was surprised that I felt everything she was feeling. Especially her guilt. I really enjoyed that we started pretty much where we left off in Divergent. You dont see many YA series, actually many books at all, start off the next installment I where the last left off. It was a change but it was also interesting. Everything just flowed.

    Four, I really do love him. I dont know if its just me or not, but I find him very genuine. His relationship with Tris, on the other handI love it to death, but there is just so much friction in this book. I dislike how Tris doesnt tell Four stuff. However there are some of those cute and also steamy scenes, which does make me extra happy. The way that Tris talks about Four is simply amazing. She believes in and loves him so much. I just really enjoyed this.

    I love that we get to know more about the different factions in Insurgent, especially Amity, where they refuge after the events of Divergent. Tris is absolutely hilarious under the serum, but also a little concerning. We see how much Four cares for her. The world building in Insurgent is so much better than in Divergent. We learn more about this dystopian world.

    Veronica Roth takes on a whole new form in the world building. There are so many twists and turns, as well as many shocks. Including (hope I am not spoiling anything here) the rebellious factionles. Its pretty awesome. I wanted to rip my heart out when Christian and Four find out how Will dies in Divergent. Its pretty horrible with both sides.

    I love Tris, I really do, but there were so many things that she did that really got onto my nerves and I wanted her to stop her from being the hero all the time. Sometimes, like with that I am learning in Classical Studies, she is full of Furor, of fury and passion, which isnt a good thing at all. The ending, hmm, I am not sure if I like it or not.

    What happens in the last chapters, I was here and there. I liked them to a point. I also found that the middle was very slow in pace and kind of dragged on way too much.

    Overall I really did enjoy Insurgent and Veronica Roth wrote some amazing scenes that tore me apart with emotions.
