Marcus stops before an open room, where Johanna Reyes, representative of Amity, sits, staring out the window. Sure, this was only one little sentence, but it could be rather emotionally damaging if, say, someone with a scar on their face were reading it. I could really sympathize with her. I believe that this is one of those stories. There is also a great sense of unease and unknown. She struggled with coping with Will's death, and with the death of her parents in the previous book, and these struggles seemed totally real to me. But she also turned into a whiny, Bella Swan-like persona, constantly whimpering about her past actions the past is the past, Tris! This was a book about society and about war and about dealing with everything that comes with both of those.
It's not necessarily saying that people are inherently bad or good, it's just that everyone takes action for their own survival, and that ultimately pits people against each other, both realistic and true. It's got action, suspense, adventure, mystery, and romance packed into it, and it was both cleverly and well executed. Spock tells me that is inaccurate. If you happen to give your seat on a bus to an old lady - well, you must be selfless! Perhaps it was just a bit too confusing. The Romance First off, yes, I still call him Four.
I grab the cup and drink it fast. It is amazing how Roth can fill the reader with adrenaline and fear. One of the things that actually did make me cry was the big betrayal in this book. The action picks up right away, and my worries for this book, the middle book of this trilogy, were completely blown away with the events that happen. Heck yes, without a single doubt. I saw the ending coming from miles away. It turns out Tobias is a very important man because of his parents.
Following the events of the previous novel, a war now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. If this continues I will break apart, and maybe that would be better, maybe it would be better to shatter and bear nothing. I loved it and I really enjoyed it. Was it something you were trying to protect? There are things happening in this book that I wouldn't have once guessed. An hour ago, nothing that happened felt real to me. If I had to guess, I would say that one of the Abnegation put the stack there for me. Even if at times you might not agree with her decisions, you still cheer her on and not for a minute does she allow you to become disengaged in her story.
As I commented in my previous review. How the heck supposed to exist typical names in any faction if they keep tranfering a lot to other factions? Dark fruit hangs among the leaves, ready to drop. Tris has to deal with the trauma of being forced to kill one of her best friends. Tris and Four are so cute together!!! Oftentimes the second book of a trilogy slows down and loses some, if not a lot, of the pacing of the first book, only for the climax and the denouement to pick up drastically in the finale. One more thing,I have a major crush on Peter.
Really, the whole thing just struck me as being a bit ridiculous. The characters are so multidimensional, that you love them without even realizing it. I didn't feel the anticipation throughout the novel and I hate to admit that I was really tempted to skim. You're thinking of something else. I never thought about it that way before, and now that seems foolish. Then he laces his fingers with mine to cover up what he just did.
She is inherently strong, but she isn't invulnerable; she shows weakness when we expect her to, just like any human and regardless of her Dauntless faction. Tobias crouches in front of me, his hand on my left shoulder. In the end, Insurgent's saving grace is that it simply doesn't belong with some of my other one starred books. Specifically, I think the idea of fear landscapes is quite interesting. Someone leads me down the hallway, to a room with a bed in it. An hour ago, nothing that happened felt real to me.
But all of the hopes I had for Will still being alive were crushed. I thought his response to the situation was a weak one and it made me lose quite a bit of respect for him. It unfolds naturally, beautifully slow. The world-building: I thought there was a disappointing lack of world-building in Divergent, and I think it improved in Insurgent. His door creaks when I pull it open, loud enough to wake him. I know my hands are shaking from all the nervous energy inside me, so I tighten my grip on his shoulder so he won't notice.
He keeps his hand on my cheek, moving his thumb over my cheekbone idly. The plot expands greatly upon what we know about the society and it's background, which in the first was mostly nil. What do you mean you're out of fucks?! I don't think I'll read Allegiant, sadly. I knew nothing going in and I loved it that way. I think this author will be one no one will ever forget, if she keeps writing amazing stories like this one. The contrast between the laughter and the stone stil ness within me is jarring. I lean back and carefully pull the hem of my shirt down so it covers me again.
It's revealed that the world is in chaos outside of the fence. I'm so freakin excited for this book! One thing I know for sure th If I thought the last book left me with a lot of questions, this one left me with even more. One thing is certain, after this, nothing will be the same anymore in the story. I couldn't ask for more of a novel, and I sincerely thank Roth for sharing it with us. I really liked his character in Divergent, I found him to be sweet, kind and a little mysterious indeed, in this book he was the only mystery.
