Elizabeth Mock I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS BOOK THAT I CAN'T STOP YELLING.


Tyler I KNOW RIGHT?!

Justyn Rampa If it all possible, I'm interested in a comparative review with Divergent. Did her writing mature with her second book? Was characterization any different? Was it mostly the same experience as reading the first book? Looking forward to your review! Thanks:-)


Rachel Justyn, why don't you just read it? Or are you being sarcastic?

Justyn Rampa Hey Rachel,

Surprisingly, I'm not being sarcastic:-)

I read the first book and if you are interested in a super long rant, I can send you my original review. I had problems with Tris as a character. Mostly because I felt she was defined by the men in her life rather than ever really defining herself. I also found the plot to be more than a bit derivative of Lois Lowry's "The Giver" and not in a good way:-/

Those are probably my two biggest complaints. If you want more I can list them:-) (Side Note: I have never had to read about someone's muscles more than I did Four's rippling defined muscles! Holy Guacamole! I got tired of that real fast)

So yeah, I was hoping to goad Tyler into a comparative review because I though perhaps Veronica Roth maybe got out all of her rookie mistakes and Insurgent was amazing. However, I can't tell from the review Tyler has written so I guess I will never know.


Rachel Haha well doesn't that just help you picture Four better? Librarians sure are critical of books, I thought it was great!
