Divergent by Veronica Roth - Book Review

Divergent by Veronica Roth
A Book Review

Synopsis: 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, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.


This BOOK! It destroyed ME! I. Was. Shook. Especially after that ending. Tris and Four. I will just leave it at that! It was incredible! I need the sequel! I loved the characters and the world-building! Sometimes I wished I was in that world and other times I wanted to just read it and not risk my life! I am so HAPPY I read this instead of finishing up Renegades. I am loving Renegades but I am not really in the mood for superheroes currently, but when I get back home (I am currently on a vacation) I am definitely going to finish it up. (Maybe for BookTubeAThon, we will see...)


SPOILERS AHOY:

I am a total Divergent! I fit in both Amity and Erudite (but not evil). I hate PETER! He is the worst character by far and I also hate Al. He betrayed his friends and almost killed the person he has a small interest to. I am a little happy he was found dead because I LOVE TOBIAS AND TRIS! Caleb was also an amazing character! I think he is ALSO divergent. I think he fits in both Abnegation and Erudite. Then the mom died. While I was shook Will did too. WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well, that was my review while I cry into my pillow.

All jokes aside, I really did love Will as a character. He was the perfect Erudite + Dauntless mix. What faction are you in?

That is it for now! If you enjoyed, SUBSCRIBE to join the bookish fun! I (hopefully) will upload every Tuesday and Thursday!
So Long,
~~D.

  1. You have no idea what you've gotten yourself into my friend, but whatever you do- do not look at any spoilers or look up anything to do with the Divergent series until you finish it.
    Then go watch the movies.

  2. I really loved the world of Divergent. I think it is one of my FAVORITE dystopian world. The way people categorized others is something that I can see being possible in our world. We already have 60 bajillion personality tests. We just haven't stepped into complete control just yet!
