If you are a true fan of the Divergent book and of Veronica Roth, you know that in 24 days (May 1st) Insurgent is finally coming out! I actually only read the Divergent book 2 months ago, so I did not have to wait extremely long. But for those readers that have read it the moment the first book came out (May 3rd, 2011) had to wait quite a while... and that is... HARD TO DO!!
But only a few more days readers! And then we get to indulge ourselves in the harsh but adventurous dystopian world (set in Chicago), and we finally get to find out what is going to happen with Tris and Tobias (aka Four) now that the factions are crumbling!!
A new ROMANTIC teaser has just been revealed! I'm extremely excited now!
Here is a awesome teaser which will tantalize your curiosity and make you even MORE excited and anxious for INSURGENT!
If you loved The Hunger Games, and you're starting to show withdrawal symptoms in need for more of that dystopian, rebelious, adventurous, romantic, madness!? Then I can gaurantee you that Divergent is the next book for you!
Here is also a short preview of an interview with Veronica Roth herself!
Love triangles do seem to be popular these days...
Yeah, they are and I think they can be great. But Tris is just not the kind of character who would be divided in that way. For me, it was always clear that there was not going to be a love triangle for her.
Will readers see new and different parts of this dystopian Chicago?
One of the wonderful things abut the second book is that Tris becomes more free to explore the city she lives in, whereas in the first one she had to stick with her faction. Her experience with the world was limited, and it becomes wider in the second book.
Do the Hunger Games comparisons bother you?
The Hunger Games is pretty fantastic, so I always get a little scared when people make those comparisons because I think, "Well, I never tried to do that..." And it's so good that it's a little daunting to see those comparisons out there. But at the same time, it's pretty incredible that it's done for the genre and for my book's visibility. Also, if you're going to be compared to something, it might as well be The Hunger Games because it's really awesome. At least it's not something I didn't like.
Will this current series just be a trilogy, or do you feel like it could grow to be a quadrilogy or spin off other books?
I never rule out anything out, but I'm sure that Tris' story will only be three books. Right now, that's the plan.Read the rest of the interview here. It's super interesting and it's always lovely to read more about the author who wrote one of your favorite books! For those who have not read the first book, Divergent, may not want to read this as it may contain some spoilers!
