Beatrice "Tris" Prior has reached the fateful age of sixteen, the stage at which teenagers in Veronica Roth's dystopian Chicago must select which of five factions to join for life. Each faction represents a virtue: Candor, Abnegation, Dauntless, Amity, and Erudite. To the surprise of herself and her selfless Abnegation family, she chooses Dauntless, the path of courage. Her choice exposes her to the demanding, violent initiation rites of this group, but it also threatens to expose a personal secret that could place in mortal danger. Veronica Roth's young adult Divergent trilogy launches with a captivating adventure about love and loyalty playing out under most extreme circumstances.
Oh my fabulous! This book is the new Hunger Games, and yes, I just said that.
I loved every aspect of this book. I literally sat down thinking I would read a few pages before I went about my day (I had things to do) and instead I ended up reading the entire book! I canceled plans to read this book, I could not put it down!
The characters were fabulous! Tris, our main character, was awesome. She was kicking butt and taking names, and I loved every minute of it! I loved the way she interacted with those around her, I got so attached to all of the characters, especially Four! If you combined Gale from The Hunger Games and Dmitri from Vampire Academy, they would make Four......... can you say awesome?
One of my favorite things about this book was the different factions. I found thiem fascinating, and I wanted to learn more about all of the ones we didn't hear much about, especially Amity and Candor. The world of Divergent was fascinating in general, it was so interesting and I wanted to learn more about it! Another thing I loved were the action sequences, it's really great to read a heart-pounding action scene every once and awhile!
This 2011 Debut lived up to all of the great reviews! Read this one today!!!
