Insurgent

It finally came, or, as I should say, I finally finished reading it. The sad thing is that I have had the book since it came out. I went to the book store at nine in the morning and started reading it. But with the crazy month that I have been having, I only now just finished it. Let me tell you, it satisfied my year and a half-long wait from when I read the ARC of Divergent.
Insurgent follows the events of Divergent, the factions falling apart, war taking place, all that good stuff. Then there's my secret love of governmental failure and rebirth which looms in the distance.
Insurgent is one of those books that you don't have to struggle through every page. I could sit down and get some much reading done in such a short time. That does go against the fact that it took me eighteen days to read, but I just didn't have as much time.
My one criticism that I would have for this book is that at times I felt that the language in there was strange. Sometimes I felt that it was too casual, sometimes I felt that it was too formal.
Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed it and it left me hanging, but satisfied what I needed to hear. And what a great last page it was!
