Insurgent Review- REVISED

22 Jan

Ok so my last book review was me being frustrated with the third Divergent book about 40% through. It seemed like the same story repeating. I decided to push through it anyways. I strongly suggest anyone who felt the same way about the book push through until the end because then it makes it not so stereotypically teen fantasy-fiction. It took me until I was 73% through the book to get really interested. **SPOILER ALERT** One of the lovers dies. YES! I mean, finally a story where not everyone lives happily ever after. Finally this person learns their lesson in taking the risks that they do. Finally young readers can learn that teenage love does not last forever. I would have liked to have read an epilogue where the remaining lover moves on romantically. The story gets more intelligent than the same city problem repeating itself like I thought it was. The idea of sixteen-eighteen year olds saving the country with advanced technology and science is kiiiind of a reach, but overall the ending of this book made a redeeming ending to the series. It also showed emotional development in the characters. Finally.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who didn’t hate the ending. I didn’t feel it was a happily ever series and I cannot believe that people are having such an issue with the death, going so far as to demand Roth rewrite the ending.

      Is THAT why people say the third one is bad? I thought it was bad because of the first 2/3 of book. Oy, people and their fairytale ending expectations.

        I agree the first 2/3 of the book didn’t work for me, nor did Fours attitude in the first 2/3 of the book. It just felt very clinical and slow compared to the rush of the first 2 books. But ya, people are furious over the death, I did a couple of blogs about it, one of them actually has the petition (who sent it to me I don’t know, but I somehow ended up with it).
