Insurgent

This book starts off right where Divergent ended. Tris and Tobias have just finished shutting down the simulation and escaped from Dauntless headquarters, but now they are on the run. They must stay one step ahead of Erudite in order to stay alive. They start out hiding in Amity headquarters, but the rules there are very strict. There is to be no fighting, and both Tris and Tobias know that they really aren't going to be able to not fight, especially with Peter there. Tris catches Peter in her room, he's stealing the hard drive that she's kept the info from the simulation on, it also has video of her father being shot. Tris has had a hard time with her parent's deaths so close together and right in front of her, so this it's devastating for her when Peter steals the hard drive. So much so that she hauls off and hits him...hard. She and Tobias know that that's pretty much the end of their sanctuary with Amity, but it doesn't matter anyway, because before they are able to escape Erudite is right there, and they must escape, this time to Candor. But Tris knows that Candor will make her tell the truth about Will and she hasn't told Tobias yet, let alone his girlfriend and her best friend Christina. Will the truth truly set her free?


I would definitely have to say that I liked Divergent better than Insurgent. I thought that the plot of Divergent was clearer, and I know that I liked the ending of Divergent way better. The ending of this one confused me a bit, I still don't quite understand what Veronica Roth had in mind with the ending of this one, but I hope it will be revealed in the next book!
