Really good book to read if you are interested in Dystopians. I really liked how this book was made by the authors styles of writing. You will feel like you are in this book actually standing next to them feeling what they are feeling. Really good book

Five factions. Each of which thinks that their way is the way to achieve a utopian society. And somehow having these five factions, each of which has certain jobs and roles in the society, they've sort of done it. At the beginning of the novel that's what everyone thinks at least.

We follow Tris as she goes through choosing which faction she's going to enter, and then we follow her through that faction's initiation time too. We also learn that Tris is Divergent. Although we don't really learn what that really means right away.

That was one of the things I liked about the book. Roth let the clues to what 'Divergent' is dribble out at a slow but steady pace. Finding the answer was also one of the things that kept me reading when the narrative got a big slow.

Overall I thought the writing was good, but also a bit uneven. Sometimes it flowed like a river, other times it was like trying to take a boat down a dry river bed.

Still, I liked the book, it was a different take on the thin line between utopia/dystopia than I've read. And it pulled me in at the beginning which is always good. ( )

(more to come) ... took Tris long enough to figure out the truth behind Four. ( )

This is a great science fiction book. I think that the way the book is placed is amazing. All of the detail of a future world with different groups doing different things is amazing. To be placed from a test to one of the sanctions in which the people will live for the rest of their lives in crazy, but of so thrilling. ( )

More like 3.5 stars, just not quite 4...

I liked it, although some stuff just seemed so illogical, and despite the fact that dystopia is not my fav thing in the world... The fact I read it so fast should be a good indication that I really didn't hate it at all. :) ( )

“Divergent” holds its own in the genre, with brisk pacing, lavish flights of imagination and writing that occasionally startles with fine detail.
Cliques writ large take over in the first of a projected dystopian trilogy.
