Blurb: Divergent Wiki
In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, 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 to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating 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 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 her.
When I first read the description of this book, I wasn’t sure what I was getting into. I started reading Divergent on a Saturday evening, and finished it a week later. My mind has been blown away by this futuristic world that Veronica Roth has created for us Readers. I instantly fell in love with the 2 main characters Tris and Four. As well as the lifestyle of the Dauntless Faction (At first). It’s definitely something I could never do and I found it absolutely fascinating.
There was a lot of fast paced movement in Divergent that had my heart racing along with Tris. I found myself holding my breath every now and then or laughing out loud. This book was so amazing, I never wanted it to end!
