Marsh's Review of Insurgent

     After the Erudite declared war on Abnegation, the Dauntless split up into two sides:  the Erudite Dauntless and the Loyal Dauntless.  Tris is a loyal Dauntless that is fighting against the Erudite to destroy the simulation.  The simulations are serums that the Erudite use to take over people's minds.  Can Tris destroy the Simulation?

     I thought this was a perfect sequel to Divergent.  I really liked how the book was paced.  I loved the descriptions, like the description of the battle-ruined Erudite.  I really felt like I was there. I think that it was well written and very well planned out.  Veronica Roth's writing makes you think about what you would do in the situations she describes.  

I give Insurgent by Veronica Roth 5 Monsters.

  1. I liked this book too, Marsh. I found both books so far to be well-crafted and exciting.

    Love your video, especially the waah-waah Charlie-Brown type voice of the adult offscreen!

    1. Ms. Joanne,
      Thanks so much I loved that video too, it was very fun to do. I am also looking forward to the 3rd book in the series to wrap it all up.
