READ THIS! You won't regret it. ( )

This has got to be one of my favourite books of all time.

In this dystopian setting, the world that remains is split into five factions, dependent on their personality and lifestyle. At the age of sixteen all young people must choose a faction to live in, they can choose the one they were brought in, or abandon their family and join a different faction. Beatrice knows she is not like her family, and her decision is between leaving them and being true to herself.

Beatrice is part of one of the most physically demanding factions, and in order to be initiated she has to undergo rigorous training. Will she be able to survive, when for the last sixteen years she has been part of a faction that preaches peace and positivity? Beatrice will have to fight with every part of her, in order to convince everyone she was put in the right faction.

Ahhh I love this book so much! It hooked me from the moment I picked it up and I could barely put it down! It’s so exciting, and fascinating and wonderful. The plot is great, it’s super fast paced and there’s tons going on – Tris is fighting to survive in a cut-throat world, as well as protect her own secrets, and deal with her romantic feelings. Tris is a very layered and complex character, and I just love her. She’s smart and stubborn and just everything a protagonist should be.

The thing I really appreciated about Divergent was that it’s unlike anything I’ve read before. It’s action-packed, but also deals with corruption, politics, relationships and how we view ourselves – a lot for a four hundred page book right?

The world building is okay – I did feel there could have been more insight into why the world was set up as it was, but as there are more books to come that might come later. Dystopian novels are currently on the increase, but I think it’s safe to say this is one of the best. The writing is very smooth, and it is so easy to get lost in the story.

The most enjoyable thing about Divergent is that it keeps you wanting more. It’s a real page-turner, gripping and exciting. It’s got great characters, a fantastic plot and excellent writing. If you haven’t read it yet, it should be top of your to be read pile. ( )

Tris is born into one of the five factions, Abnegation. On the special choosing day for every 16 year old, Tris is struggling on which to chose her own faction or dauntless which she has always dreamed of being in. tris ends up in dauntless where there training is harsh. Tris has to master her fears and learn how to fight and use weapons. Tris gets a weird visit from her mom and other inside people who know about her specialness and how she is a divergent. When her mom tells her to to tell her brother to look up whats in the serum for the test of the choosing Tris ask her brother. Her bother belongs to the faction that is making fun of Tris is old faction. They also want to rules the new places. THen the faction makes their army with the dauntless who are fearless fighters so they can kill the abnegation. Tris and her boyfriend are immune to this mind control because their divergents. At the End tris escapes with some of her family to the other faction that grows the food far away from the corrupted city.
It was a good book ,but got very confusing at some parts. then it wasn't any involvement of two factions but overall it was a ok book. ( )

Enjoyed this more as a book than a film. My imagination was better with the scenes where they were delving into the mind and its fears. Not as gripping as Mockingjay but an enjoyable read nonetheless. ( )
