One choice can transform you--or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves--and herself--while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable--and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

Oh my freaking God. You know that feeling when you have about 15 pages left and you just want to wait a couple of minutes because you have a feeling you'll be loosing a friend in any moment so you want to savor it a little while longer? That's Insurgent

This book reminded me why I love books so so much. Because it is incredible. A roller-coaster full of emotions, action, love and so much more. Veronica Roth did it again. I thought Divergent was pure awesomeness, and Insurgent didn't disappoint one little bit. It was magic.

Tris was even more amazing in this second instalment. She grew a lot as a character and she was totally baddass! How she managed not to break will always be a mystery to me. She is so brave, and she doesn't even know it. 

Tobias. Awww, a special place in my heart will always belong to him. He's so sweet and caring and still fierce and strong and he keeps trying even when the world looks like it has arrived to its end. He's amazing.

The writing was so beautiful and I couldn't put the book dawn! I am so tired because of work, but I couldn't go to sleep because I needed to read. Yes, this book is that compelling. And I loved every second of it. So, if you are searching for a fast paced book filled with great-amazing-incredible-pure bliss action, a love that it's so great that can defeat anything, with a strong female baddass character, Insurgent is the perfect book for you!

What's wrong with you? I shake my head. Pull it together. And that is what it feels like: pulling the different parts of me up and in like a shoelace. I feel suffocated, but at least I feel strong.

It's bad enough that I killed Will, that I didn't think fast enough to come up with another solution. Now I have to live with everyone else's judgement as well as my own, and the fact that nothing - not even me - will ever be the same again. 
The Candor sing the praises of the truth, but they never tell you how much it costs.

I do trust you, is what I want to say. But it isn't true - I didn't trust him to love me despite the terrible things I had done. I don't trust anyone to do that,but that isn't his problem; it's mine.

Yaya! I'm so glad you finally read this. For the second book in the series, it was really good. There were some things I didn't like about it but, but - Tris and Four! They're amazing.

Yay! I'm so glad this book made an impression on you, Nea. I loved it too! I had some issues with Tris at times, but, like you said, Four will always have a special place in my heart. I'm very excited (and nervous!) for the final book in the trilogy. At least after that we'll have the movie to look forward to if it goes ahead! :)
