Haven’t read the book? Check out my review here!
My favourite part of books is discussing them with other fans. Because I want my reviews to remain spoiler-free as they’re more likely to be read by those who haven’t read the book yet, I’m also planning to post “book discussions,” for most of the books I review. Obviously, these book discussions will contain spoilers and much flailing. Maybe some intellectual-like discussion…but mostly flailing.
Basically the Four/Tris relationship was HOT. The little hints that Four was into Tris were like candy to me. When they were going through his fear landscape my heart exploded. THE BOX SCENE! I wouldn’t mind be trapped in a tiny box with Four. Seriously.
Al and Will’s death upset me. Al’s I understood the point of, but I was not happy with what Roth did to his character. I don’t understand how he went from pretending to pass out when forced to fight someone to attempting to kill Tris. Maybe it’s because we were seeing it from Tris’s perspective, maybe I was reading too quickly and missed something key, but it honestly came out of no where for me. Will’s death felt completely unnecessary to me. I guess it could be setting up something for the next book with Christina’s reaction when she figures it out, but it was still GAH! WHY!
And I absolutely love how the society is set up. I recently read Angel‘s review of Divergent, and she made a good point about how it doesn’t really make sense for the whole world to function that way, but I think that Insurgent will address that issue (or at least I hope it will). After all, why else would the Dauntless be guarding the walls? And why else would it lock on the outside?
Besides, I like anything that I can use to define myself. Personally, I think I would end up in Erudite, but I think I hold a lot of the qualities of the old Dauntless (before all the forced fighting), though I’m not sure how good I’d be at jumping out of trains onto random buildings… I’d probably be that girl that went splat right off the bat.
So what do you guys think? And let me know which faction you think you would be in/choose?
