Book 2 in Veronica Roth’s dystopian series wasn’t as good as the first one but still a very good read.
The book carries straight on from the ending of the first with the group of Tris and her friends fleeing the state that the city has been left in. As they travel around they get involved with various factions trying to work out how they can rid society of self-destruction. However the more she learns the more Tris seems to not be able to make the things that Tobias wants to add up. What makes it worse is that his father, the one person she hates most in the world seems to be the only person that can lead her to the truth and she will have to embrace all her options of faction to get to it. Through the book she is faced with many difficult situations that test her both physically and emotionally. She is scared for the events she has already lived through and is struggling to come to terms with her own actions. Whilst this is going on she is also trying to accept that the people around her aren’t who they think she is and there is also her relationship with Tobias. However she continues to fight for the truth and risk the consequences of what she believes to be an inevitable end.
It took my a while to start this book due to exams but once I sat down and read it I did really enjoy it. Although not as good as the first book there is a lot a like about it. I think there was a lot going on and the variety of characters that we came across and their actions made it easy to keep on reading. I really liked the ending but I kind of had the truth worked out from what we were hearing throughout the book. If you have read the first book you should read this and if not it is a series you should read. I liked the idea behind the story and how the society has come to be and I’m also intriuged to see what is going to happen next.
