This book was pure genious! A fast paced, well written Dystopian novel. I couldn't read it fast enough. I found myself captivated by the strong willed, independent heroine. Those are the heroines I look forward to when I read. This book tells us that we should never comform to anything. We are free to choose. ( )

I had previously read this book when it was first released, and now I wanted to re-read it so I could read Insurgent . I felt the same heart stopping emotions that I felt when reading it for the first time!

I can't help but feeling everything that Tris is feeling in the book. It's amazing how Veronica Roth could create a heroine so relatable as hers.

The story isn't only about a dystopian society, it contains an underlying message that I'm pretty sure Four summed up in one part of the book. There's also so many bold themes here, themes that actually could exist in our "future" society.

I always keep thinking: "In what faction do I belong?" And I've come to the conclusion that I'm equal parts Dauntless and Erudite. A deadly combination (literally! ha!).

I honestly never get tired of this book. 5 stars. ( )

Patchy writing. Some scenes are very well written; some scenes are not. A few of the metaphors were bad enough that I put the book down for a day or two, unable to believe an editor would let them get through. Four is well-drawn, but the other characters not so much. Motivations are told to the reader, not shown. Still, worth reading, if only to get you thinking about your faction. ( )

Oh Tris! shes so stubborn but I love her. Shes strong, she doesnt seem to become blinded by love like often times main characters seem to become. Shes independent to her feelings ( )

Another YA dystopian book, with the main plotline being choosing a "career" with one of five factions at age 16. Each of the factions has a specific job within their society. Beatrice Prior is the main character, and we follow her from just before her choosing until the end of her training. There is, of course, a love interest involved for Beatrice, calling herself "Tris" when training started. I did enjoy the book, having bought it for my grand daughter, and read it mainly to prepare for the movie version. I would have liked to know what event (or events) caused the fence to be built around Chicago and the population to be divided into five factions. Perhaps it will be covered in one of the other books in the series. ( )
