#17 THE DIVERGENT SERIES: INSURGENT

#17 THE DIVERGENT SERIES: INSURGENT (21/03/15)



It's part two. Same players, same earnestness, same 'EVERYTHING IS SUPER DEATH OR LIFE IMPORTANT!' Same serious frowning, same young twenty year-olds. This time, the free-running numpties hide out with the lawyers and team up with the outcasts to take on the establishment and Kate Winslet who's unearthed a mysterious cyber time capsual with a message from the past from those who built the city. Then it's lots of running, some kissing, bloodless killing and serious, earnest 20-somethings pouting and kissing earnestly.

Not nearly as horrible as was feared and not a torture, say like the Twatlight films and a whole lot better than Seventh Son. But really why is all YA fiction so obsessed with post apocalyptic worlds filled with young people killing each other?

6/10
