One choice can transform you. Beatrice Prior’s society is divided into five factions—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). Beatrice must choose between staying with her Abnegation family and transferring factions. Her choice will shock her community and herself. But the newly christened Tris also has a secret, one she’s determined to keep hidden, because in this world, what makes you different makes you dangerous.
I am giving Divergent by Veronica Roth 5/5 stars.
It took me reading Four by Veronica Roth and watching the movie adaption of Divergent 2 times to finally pick up the book and read it. I have to say, I am disappointed that I waited so long.
I read Divergent over the course of two night before going to sleep, each night reading about 250 pages and staying up way past the time I told myself I was going to go to sleep. I found myself unable to put the darn book down. I didn’t expect it to be this way for me as I’ve already seen the movie and knew what to expect, but I found myself completely drawn into the story and wanted to keep going.
Divergent is pack with action, adventure, and emotion. The mixture of these three makes for an amazing story. I found myself cheering on Tris and her friends, while hating Peter and his gang. I mean, I’ve seen the movie, but I am completely 100% a fan of the characters in the book and wish they just jump out of my head and onto the big screen.
Now I personally am not a big dystopian fan, but The Divergent Series is probably going to make me fan, if last two books I have left are just as good as Divergent.
Veronica Roth, you just got yourself another fanboy!
