I remembered that I liked this books but I had forgotten just how good it is. I think I actually preferred it second time round. The book has a really interesting idea for its society but it’s the great characters that really get you turning pages. Tris is a really good character to read as because she is got an inner struggle that we all have, wanting to fit in but still be herself and do what’s right. I also really appreciated this time round that she was going through point in life where you start to realise that your parents are actually just like you and have a life you haven’t been aware of. She also discovers the meaning of real friendship and enemies in the people around her and I they are start her path towards accepting who she really is. Of course the best relationship to read about is between her and Four and there were a few moments of swooning as the book went on. I’m really excited now to re-read Insurgent in time for the release of Allegiant later this month!.
