Insurgent: The Divergent Series

Hello dear Readers,

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Today, I would like to share my thoughts on reading Insurgent, the second book on the Divergent Series.

A few months ago, I decided to read the first book in the series, Divergent. However, I did something that I usually do not do. I watched the movie first before reading the book. I have to say, I did not like the movie as much as I did the book. Divergent was one of these books that I could not put down. The moment I started it, I felt involved in the story, the characters and I love Veronica Roth's writing style. The structure of the book, Beatrice Prior (the main character) point of view, the story. All these elements, made this read an enjoyable experience. I read it in less than one week, which is good, considering it is over 500 pages long. Another interesting thing, I did not have a hard time forgetting about the movie and focusing on the book. I do not want to be disrespectful to people who love the movies but in my case, so far, I prefer the books.

This week, the second movie will be released: Insurgent, the second book in the series. I finished this book yesterday, and I loved it. I absolutely love it. I knew the book was going to end at some point but I was not expecting that ending and it was not a disappointing one. The events, the action, the evolution of the characters, how more human Beatrice feels, and definitely, was not expecting the death of one the characters, at least, not on this book. Insurgent kept surprising me, chapter after chapter. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series: Allegiant. 

Insurgent includes the first four chapters of Allegiant but I could not bring myself to read them. I am liking the series so much, I do not want spoilers of any kind. 

I am still deciding if I want to watch the movie. Probably what is going to happen, I will wait for the movie to come out on DVD and rent it, like I did with Divergent.

Divergent, a series that has surprised me in a good way, I did not think I was going to like it as much as I do.
