In a future Chicago, 16-year-old Beatrice Prior must choose among five predetermined factions to define her identity for the rest of her life, a decision made more difficult when she discovers that she is an anomaly who does not fit into any one group, and that the society she lives in is not perfect after all.

So this was actually a re-read because i have had Insurgent sitting there since the day it came out but have been putting off re-reading this just because i have so many books in my TBR pile.
The first time i read this was before i started this blog so i thought i would do a review anyway.

Can i just say that the first time i read this i actually wasn't that into it, like it was good but i didn't understand the hype about it. I think its because i read it so fast that i didn't take time to enjoy it. By the time insurgent came out i had completely forgotten what happened, which is why i had to re-read.

The second time round i actually took the time to enjoy it and let everything sink in and i can actually understand the hype now. It really was great.
I don't think i need to explain what its about because I'm sure you have all read it so i will just skip to my opinion.
I love the world building, although i would like to learn more about the other factions (fingers crossed insurgent!). It was written in such a way that it felt so real.
And Tobias, oh man he is like the perfect guy. He is by far my favorite character.
The action in this book is so good. I pretty much read the last half of the book in one sitting because i couldn't put it down i just wanted to know what happened. Even when i had things to do i would tell myself 'just one more chapter' and five chapters later i was still sitting there.
A really great read and i recommend this for any dystopian lovers, or pretty much anybody should really give it a go

Five stars
