This was a standard young adult dystopian novel. It was entertaining and kept me turning the pages. I liked the main character. I thought the concept was a little clunky and unbelievable, but if I ignored that it was a fun story. The love story was typical of the genre and did result in a couple of eye rolls, but I did like the characters and appreciated the lack of a love triangle. Overall it was a fun read that was pretty typical for a young adult dystopian novel but I have read others that were more interesting and that had a more believable set up ( )

Awesome book. Better than Hunger Games, IMHO. ( )

Great story line. A subtle love story. ( )

Another dystopian future book, another book I got into after students got me into it. I liked this one a bit more than Hunger Games but again, I would love to see a female lead that doesn't fall in love and have really dumb plot twists centered around the love story. This book would be GREAT without the added seemingly necessary love story.

I like dytopian books and this was pretty good. I like the different factions and their values and the initiation was fun to read. Tris was a good main character, she's strong but not invincible. She is physically weak at the beginning but adapts and does what she needs to in order to become stronger. Tris is also kind and can be both selfless and selfish, like most people. I liked her and Four's relationship and the secrets they told each other. The fear simulator is so cool but scary. I can't imagine facing your fears like that.
Overall this was an engaging read and I'm looking forward to book 2. ( )
