Synopsis

The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered – fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningliess. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend to complexities of human nature – and of herself – while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.


**ORIGINAL REVIEW** Perhaps three stars is too many? There were moments in this book that I really enjoyed but my goodness there were HUGE chunks of it that I just couldn’t cope with. It was slow and dull and with such simple language it really needed more of a plot to compensate. During the plane ride for example, what should have been an earth shattering moment of revelation, was just meh!

Oh and the ending? What an anti-climax!

Plus side? The voice actor who played four was delicious to listen to!

**AFTER THOUGHT** Since watching the end of ‘How I Met Your Mother’ I have changed how I view this book. Perhaps the story was not really want I thought it was about after all? Maybe the story was about what happens next?

**THIRD REVISION** I wish I hadn’t read this book. I have decided I would rather not know their fate than have this be the ending. The first book meant this story was so full of promise and yet this is where things ended.

Does this book deserve more stars because of how much it has affected me? Nope. You don’t reward bad behaviour.

Some adequate moments. Wouldn’t recommend.
