Insurgent — Veronica Roth
My overall impression for Insurgent was mostly bipolar—I once assured myself that the second sequel would be as good as the first one; better even—yet, my expectations failed me. I actually didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it either.
Let’s have a quick rundown on what I liked and what I didn’t like:
1.The plot takes off immediately where Divergent ended.
2.It was still fast-paced and fun to read.
3.Packed with suspenseful and adrenaline-fueled scenes.
5.The possibilities are endless.
6.We get to see how every faction work; as well as the involvement of the factionless.
7.A lot of surprises. Who sides with whom?
8.Peter redeemed himself.
9.Tris’ betrayal over Four. She chose her parents over him.
1.First hundred pages were a snore-fest.
2.Too many characters. Who was who?
3.Tris’ dramatic antics and Bella-like persona.
4.Too many make-out sessions and never-ending sexual frustration. Just get it over with already, kay?
5.Four’s jerkiness. It’s not sexy.
6.On the bad side, parts of the action didn’t make sense.
7.Unpolished sides and major loopholes. What really lies outside the fence? What are the Divergents’ roles? How are they supposed to help the mission?
8.The villain was killed very fast without too much of a fight. “Yes, if you kill me you’ll never find the information!” *stabs*
9.The ending—major cliffhanger.
10.And the very thing that still puzzles me until now is…..
“WHO DRIVES THE DAMN TRAIN?!”
