I am not sure why I took so long to get around reading Insurgent. Nut I couldn’t bring myself to read it straight after Divergent. I think I just want to bask in the amazing feeling of experiencing Divergent first. Anyway, I decided to re-read Divergent and read Insurgent in preparation of Allegiant.

When characters are faced with uncertain circumstances, sometimes they choose right or wrong, but it’s easy to let them off the hook. When faced with certain circumstances with known negative consequences and they still choose a “bad” path, it is so much more interesting to read. And it’s not just the “good” characters who display this moral dichotomy. There’s the “bad” guy who has to drug himself to hurt people because it upsets him.

Words can not explain how much I loved this book. I initially put off reading Divergent because everybody loved this book so much. I didn’t want to disappoint anybody or have to write a negative review over this book so I put off reading it. I also didn’t want there to be another book that my friends loved and I didn’t.
