Entertaining as far as YA dystopian fiction is concerned. Borrowed from the local library's Overdrive collection. Lel. ( )

I did enjoy this book....Even though it did start off kind of slow for me...It took about 4-5 chapters or so for me to really start getting into it.

The main issues I had with it though was the constant arguing, but after reading "The Reality Of Grief" that Veronica Roth wrote at the end of the book, kind of helped me understand the arguing between Tris & Tobias a bit more. Although this isn't much of a spoiler, there may be some who don't want to know even this small little bit. :-) And it did have its somewhat boring moments for me...so with both of those combined, that's why it got a 4/5 stars.

Some thing's were kind of predictable (1) because there is a third book out (2) Well...How else should it end up? lol

But overall, the book was good and once I actually sat down to listen to the audio (which I enjoyed the narrator) and/or read the book..I was able to get through it within "one sitting" (if you can call it that...Because I was multitasking as I was listening to it).

For someone like me who isn't into dystopian type of books, this one is giving me a little more hope that there may be others out there that could be just as enjoyable.

I still have yet to order Allgeiance and I'm not quite sure when I will because that book will be a total difference between my first two because it's still a hard cover and in Red cover. So, I guess once I am ready to order it...I will just have to deal with it. But, I'm not quite sure when I will be ordering it.. . :-) ( )

I thought the book Insurgent would be a totally different book. It was very interesting and depressing in my opinion. Veronica Roth makes such good books and her books make you imagine what is going on. It was cool how many faction-less there were. I was interested why the Candor thought Four was controlling the attack. ( )

It's just a bit shallow and superficial. I read it after the films so expected more. ( )

I won't write a spoiler here, but Veronica Roth really has a way of wrapping up the end of the story while leaving the reader gasping at the revelation, and desperate to read more.
