Insurgent by Veronica Roth - review | Children's books | The Guardian
Roth's books have prospered by exploring similar turbulent Do Tris and Four actually consummate their relationship, I enquire, citing one. However, I think in this book their relationship develops. They are both not too trusting people, especially Four, and in this book they learn to trust each other. Tris. 10 discussion posts.

I thought this made the opening of Insurgent better because it let the storyline of Insurgent establish itself without having to spend time recapping what had happened previously. The character of Tris is explored deeply in Insurgent. What I thought was brilliant about the exploration and the development of her character, was the realistic way she deals with all that happened in Divergent and the continuing events of Insurgent.
Her actions mirror those of someone suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and this made the plotline feel more real as it would make sense for Tris to be suffering from PTSD after everything she suffered in such a small space of time at the end of Divergent.
Alongside Tris, I liked seeing the exploration of Four and Caleb's characters and their relationships with others.
This especially is shown in Four's relationship with his parents and Caleb's relationship with Tris and members of their old faction, Abnegation. Seeing Four's character looked at in depth gave me more of a perspective on him and the actions he makes throughout both books. Because we see Four through the eyes of Tris, it means we see her version of him. Although in the final book in the trilogy we will be seeing Four's point of view, which I do think twisted his choices a little because of her mindset in what she was suffering.
Insurgent by Veronica Roth - review
In Insurgent we discover more about what it means to be Divergent and find out that more and more of the characters tested Divergent and managed to hide it. He did what he did because he believes in my strength. How on earth would not yelling at her like that when all the other initiates showed signs of doing badly indicate they were seeing each other?!!!
A shake of the head would suffice. He did not do what he did because he believes in her strength. This… whatever it is.
Their relationship needs more definition. He steps back, shaking his head. I push away, hard, but he grabs my other wrist, holding our crossed arms between us. Here she is, wanting to walk away from a fight, but her boyfriend physically restrains her to prevent her from doing so. He does stuff like this multiple times during the series.

He shakes his head. Because your small, or a girl, or a Stiff. His hand smells like metal. When was the last time he held a gun? My body tenses at the edge in his voice, so I am coiled as tight as a spring, and I forget to breathe.
And here we are, supposed to feel that Tobias is so noble and great because he can resist his apparently even worse abusive tendencies. Sure, its not healthy at all. Sure, its still pretty bad. Tris and Tobias fight.

But when they fight, they address issues that have been building up. A few fights are good for a couple. When they are excessive, they stop being so. When they are physical, like in Divergent, they really stop being so.
One of the things I love about Tris as a character is how despite the fact that she is a short, skinny girl who comes from an Abnegation background, she can kick ass and be awesome and it killed me to read the parts where she doubted herself.
