A big let down. TERRIBLE metaphors all through the first few chapters of the book. The story wanders around. Characters splash back and forth, doing things that seem random, making choices based on things the author TELLS us. Violence and lust are tossed in to prop up the story, but aren't believable and don't work. This novel hangs around the neck of the first, hoping to use the heat of the original to fuel it. It fails.

Continues the story well. Not sure I actually like the characters but the story twists are good. ( )

DRAMA! Things are getting intense. Specially towards the end. I simply cant wait to finish the last installment and definetely to watch the last 2 movies. ( )

This second book in the series seems to continue and focus more on conflict than the first. It just about has constant action and one thing happens right after the other. ( )

Not the best sci-fi novel I've ever read and certainly not the most original but I enjoyed the premise and the characters were wonderful, well thought out and developed. (It's just an added bonus that Four is gorgeous...) This book deals with family issues, self-identity and how to survive when the thing that makes you different is what makes you normal. ( )

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.
