Insurgent book reveiw

My book reveiw on Insurgent

For my book report I choose to do it on Insurgent,
 the second book in the Divergent trilogy.This books
genre is fiction.The author is Veronica Roth.

Tris is fighting for survival in a shattered world that is falling apart.
She has to go behind everyone's back to find out the truth about her
world,why they have been kept inside the fence for many years, and
 the to help her do it.She needs the help of her true love Tobias.

One of many things I like about this book is that it has great characters
and really paints a picture of how it would feel like and look like .
I like it when it says"We walk down series of sleek corridors.
Despire the fact we climb a few flights of stairs I still feel like
I am plunging into the earth."There was nothing I didn't like about
this book and nothing to criticize.

I think the message the author was trying to get through to the reader
was that we shouldn't let other people determine who we are.We should
be who we want to be and embrace all or strength and talents.

I think this books recommended readers are anyone who enjoys reading
 adventure and action books, but I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone
under 12 years old because of some of the action and descriptions.

I think that the Appaloosa is an amazing breed. It has many different features such as its hooves (feet), which are usually striped. This breed is well known for its leopard spotted coat but there are many other markings on the Appaloosa. Some more of the breed’s characteristics are that the sclera can be visible around the iris when the eye is in a normal position. An interesting fact is that the Appaloosas average height is 14.2 hands which means that the breed is a horse breed because a horses height is 14.1 hands tall at the smallest.



The Appaloosa is one of a few horse breeds that go blind from Eru more frequently than other horse breeds. 25% of Eru is found in Appaloosas. 80% of uiveitis is found in Appaloosas. If you don’t know what Eru is it’s an active inflammation episode in the eye. Eru is a disease that tends to lead to blindness in most horses but tends to be in Appaloosas. If an Appaloosa has white socks, you should be grooming them at least 3 times a week in winter if it is wet weather you should check the feet everyday because if they are in a really muddy paddock they can get mud fever. It is a serious illness and if its not treated early it can lead to the horse’s death.



In history, the Appaloosa was the breed originally named “Palouse Horse”, this name was given to them by the early settlers. This horse’s origin was the United States and now is the most popular breed in the United States. Appaloosas are known to be stock horses like driving cattle and sheep.






The appaloosa can also be used in western competitions   like rodeos but also can be used in eventing which is cross country,  show jumping and dressage. From my experience Appaloosas are lovely to ride and compete on their strides are a great side. The Appaloosa that I ride’s name is Dixie.  Her stride is a great size and her walk trot and canter are so smooth. Depending on the size of your horse or pony it can be ridden in western or English saddle.

Overall I think that the Appaloosa is a lovely breed.
