Book Review: Insurgent by Veronica Roth

The sequel to Divergent, this book picks up one hour after the first book ends.  No catch-up to wade through, no exposition of what happened between the end of one book and the beginning of the next, just BAM! Right into the story!

Just like Divergent, this book carried great tension with excellent character development that only irritated me because they came across as real people who simply refused to learn their lesson the first time.  But since they DO grow as characters, their mistakes only add to the overall growth, and the result is satisfying.

Of course, like Divergent, this book does struggle with a handful of scenes where the intended emotion and motivation of the protagonist aren't as clear as I would like, but they're not painful or bad.  Simply unclear.

As far as this book goes, I STRONGLY recommend it.
