Divergent: Book 1 of the Divergent Series
By: Veronica Roth
5 out of 5 Stars
When Beatrice Prior turns 16, she must make a life changing decision between 5 factions. These factions are Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family, or being who she really is. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone- even herself.
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames
herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are. 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 a growing conflict that threatens
to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her
secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy
What I Thought:
Wow. This was a great book. It has the perfect amount of action and suspense. It keeps you on the edge of your seat! I prefer more action than romance, so this book is great for all you adventure lovers. Tris and Four are characters so in depth that if you put the book down it screams at you to find out more. I LOVED this book!!
Note: There is a part in Divergent that some may find questionable.
(This is a very late review, as this book came out a while back, however I am planning to do an Insurgent review. Insurgent came out on May 1st.)
