Insurgent by Veronica Roth - review | Children's books | The Guardian
Following on from Veronica Roth's explosive novel Divergent, Insurgent This especially is shown in Four's relationship with his parents and. The books were a hit, leading to the popular flick Divergent, and this week's sequel, Insurgent, which follows Tris and Four as they attempt to infiltrate the. So you've finished Divergent, and need more of Tris and Four and Dauntless You probably finished Book One and within moments were purchasing The relationship between Tris and Four is so honest and beautiful, and.
What I thought was brilliant about the exploration and the development of her character, was the realistic way she deals with all that happened in Divergent and the continuing events of Insurgent. Her actions mirror those of someone suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and this made the plotline feel more real as it would make sense for Tris to be suffering from PTSD after everything she suffered in such a small space of time at the end of Divergent.
Alongside Tris, I liked seeing the exploration of Four and Caleb's characters and their relationships with others. This especially is shown in Four's relationship with his parents and Caleb's relationship with Tris and members of their old faction, Abnegation. Seeing Four's character looked at in depth gave me more of a perspective on him and the actions he makes throughout both books.
Because we see Four through the eyes of Tris, it means we see her version of him. Although in the final book in the trilogy we will be seeing Four's point of view, which I do think twisted his choices a little because of her mindset in what she was suffering.
In Insurgent we discover more about what it means to be Divergent and find out that more and more of the characters tested Divergent and managed to hide it.
I thought this was interesting because it draws a comparison between the characters that manage to hide their differences and those who don't, like Tris, who struggled in both books to hide her differences with others and continues to hide it to many of the people she interacts with.
Romance and Representation in “Insurgent” | The F Word
Much like Divergent, the finale of the book was mindblowing and leaves a major cliffhanger for the start of Allegiant, the final book in the series. MarleneHectorand Keeto become simulated into attempting to commit suicide unless a Divergent is handed over; out of the three, they are unable to save Marlene.
To prevent more people from dying, Tris offers herself over to Erudite and is placed in a cell by Peter and, to her shock, Caleb, both of whom are now working with Jeanine.
However, Tobias follows her and ends up becoming captured, although he states that he has managed to convince Dauntless to ally themselves with the factionless, with the upcoming insurgency scheduled several days afterward. After unsuccessful simulation tests, Jeanine orders for Tris' execution, but Peter, in return for Tris' rescue of him at the Amity sector, has swapped the serum for a paralytic serum beforehand and also frees Tobias, allowing the trio a chance to escape back to the Abnegation sector.
Insurgent by Veronica Roth - review
There, Tris meets with Marcus, who tells him that Jeanine is withholding the information that Abnegation protected; should the factionless take hold of it, it would certainly be destroyed.
Tris, Christina, and Marcus head for Amity to request Johanna's help, who, alongside several others including Susan's brother, Robertchoose to assist them despite Amity's resistance. They are additionally assisted by Cara and another Erudite renegade, Fernandowho act as navigators. This so-called "Insurgents" infiltrate the Erudite headquarters the following day, which sees the loss of Fernando, but they manage to access Jeanine's laboratory.
Inside, Tris faces simulations before confronting Jeanine, who is cornered by Tori Wu. Despite trying to convince Tori to let her go, Tori kills Jeanine, then brands Tris a traitor. The invasion of Erudite having ended, Tris learns about the casualties, including Lynn, the fact that the factionless have taken all the weapons so they can rule after Jeanine's demise, and is subsequently handcuffed alongside Christina, Marcus, and the other Insurgents, though she is able to tell Tobias about the information, which he and Caleb share through the computers.
The information is a video narrated by a woman named Edith Priorwho came from "an organization fighting for peace". Edith vaguely explains that the world had become corrupt, and it is for this reason that the city was sealed away from the rest of the world to allow the Divergent numbers to increase, after which Amity would open the fence forever and the population should re-enter the world.
As the book ends, the room erupts into voices. Setting[ edit ] The setting is a dystopian Chicago in the far future, where Lake Michigan has turned into a giant marsh.
Insurgent (novel) - Wikipedia
The Candor compound surrounds a ruined Merchandise Martcalled by them the "Merciless Mart" due to their unrelenting honesty. The Amity live on farms, located outside a fence that surrounds the city and keeps the other factions in ; their central meeting area is a building with a great tree in the center.
The Dauntless compound is the combination of a glass building and a deep cave underneath it, nicknamed "The Pit. The standard retail version includes previously unreleased material deleted scenes.
Trade publication Publisher Weekly received the novel enthusiastically: So even though this second book of the trilogy that began with Divergent feels like a necessary bridge between the haunting story she created in book one and the hinted-at chaos of book three, readers will be quick to forgive. The climactic reveal, hinting at the secret origins of their society, is neither surprising nor particularly plausible, but the frenzied response makes for another spectacular cliffhanger.
Insurgent Summit Entertainment announced that a film adaptation of Insurgent would be released as The Divergent Series: Insurgent on March 20, as a sequel to the film adaptation of Divergent with Brian Duffield originally chosen to write the script for the film.
