Series: Divergent #2
Author: Veronica Roth
Review: Picking up immediately were Divergent ended, Tris and her crew are battling Janine and the Erudite who are distributing a serum to control Dauntless. The only people immune are Divergent while the Fractionless are planning to stage an uprising.
Hmm. I really liked the first book. It was fun and action packed. It seemed like nothing of importance happened for 3/4 of this book. There was a lot of teenage angst between Tris and Four (he didn't even seem like the same character from book 1). I was so done with their melodrama mid-way through the book I was hoping they would breakup so I wouldn't have to listen to Tris promise she wouldn't lie to him again...and then immediately break the promise. I'll avoid spoilers but I thought it was bizarre Tris would easily agree to work with Marcus given their history and there was a major death that should have been more thrilling (or satisfying is a better term) at the end. This book concludes with everyone finding out what is outside the gates....nothing shocking.
Overall, it wasn't perfect but I still liked it.
