Insurgent is Ineffective

It was four years ago when Veronica Roth’s novel, Divergent hit bookstores, and one year later the series continued with the second novel, Insurgent. The Divergent Series was released during a peek time for Young Adult Fiction. The Hunger Games, Twilight, The Maze Runner, all books that fall into that category and have been very successful. So, what is the first thing you do with a successful novel? Yup, make it into a movie. All the titles mentioned above have been adapted included the second novel in The Divergent Series, but that doesn’t mean they all were critically successful films. Unfortunately, director Robert Schwentke’s new picture, Insurgent, is living proof.
