I like the social organization, the other world. It is very entertaining, yet becomes drole as it transcends into the rest of the series. Makes you think about your values.
Divergent is a novel based in a dystopian society (like the Hunger Games Trilogy) where citizens, at the age of 16, are tested to see if they are qualified to move from their faction (hometown containing people who think the same way, feel the same way, and do the same things) to a different faction. There are many factions: Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), Erudite (the intelligent), Abnegation (the selfless), and Candor (the honest). The individuals who do not fit into any factions are Divergent. Divergent people are told to hide their secret, because they are hunted after because they do not fit in. Tris, the main character, is captivating, and is the reason you won't stop reading. Page after page, the book becomes more compelling. Surprises and secrets lurk in every corner of this book. Luckily, it is a trilogy (again like the Hunger Games), so the adventure doesn't end. I would recommend this book to anyone from a strong reader who reads nonstop to a reluctant reader who has trouble finding books they like, because the story makes you feel the characters' emotions, and making you feel in their position. Overall, I rate it 5 stars because of its amazing characters, captivating setting, and compelling story.
This is the first book in an excellent series! I teach 7th grade and I read books like this so I can make recommendations to students. A great dystopian book for young adult readers!
I really did love this book! Young adult distopian novels are definitely attention grabbing. If you like the Hunger Games and are looking for a similar read, then this is a book you will love!!
Ah! I love this book so much and have shared it with other ladies all the time. It is one of the best dystopian society books I've read. We won't talk about the last book, but the first book is SO worth it. Find some time for yourself and go read it!
Love this book. It WAY BEATS OUT The Hunger Games in my opinion. It kept me turning the page until I finished it within 24 hours. So great! The second book is just as good and I am about to embark upon the third. Good work Veronica Roth!!
Scale: 1star = infinity Best book ever!!!!!! Great even if you hate reading this book is great
I have read the whole series. Out of the trilogy this was definitely my favorite book. It's a great story and was a good read for someone who loves series and dystopian novels.
Pretty good! I need to catch up with the entire series!
This book is amazing. It is a great transition for people who have already finished the Hunger Games Trilogy. It is along the same lines & features a strong female role. I can't wait for the movie to come out in March!
This book is an amazing read. It's fast, fun, great for people who love the Hunger Games - and I'd even go as far as to say that it's better than The Hunger Games. Strong, interesting female all the way!
