BOOK REVIEW: Divergent by Veronica Roth


In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue--Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is--she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are--and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, Tris also learns that her secret might help her save the ones she loves . . . or it might destroy her
 I was recommended this novel by a friend because she wanted me to go to the movie with her. And after reading Divergent, I fell in love with the science fiction genre and I try to read as much scifi as I can now! This novel, in one word, was brilliant and I am in love with the fandom!

Divergent is set in a post-apocalyptic Chicargo and the author really makes you believe that that is the only safe place in America! From page one Divergent pulled me into the novel and I felt as if I was Tris herself making all the choices in the novel. This novel is outstanding!

Roth's novel has so much written into it-it makes the whole thing hard to put down! The characters were written great and I think that this was a great debut to read! Everything was at the highest peak of Roth's writing and I wish there was more to this trilogy!

I loved this novel and I couldn't find any faults within this novel. Please read this novel, Divergent needs so much love towards it! :D Happy reading!
