There are only a few words I need to describe this book. EPICLY AWESOME! AMAZING! VERY COOL. I think you get the point here. This is one amazing book and I can't wait for the next one. I read this book all the way through in about two hours and it definitely lived up to the hype. There are surprises at every corner and the author takes risks with everything from plot to characters and I love that about this book.

Obviously as many great books the crowning jewel of this book is the characters. Tris is an amazing character and goes through what people and teens especially all over the world are trying to do, not the whole thing but the trying to decide what you want in life sort of thing. I love Four, he is so amazing and I just want to hug him every time he comes into a scene.

I am intrigued by the world Ms. Roth has built and it makes me want to just keep reading so I can learn more and more about it. I had to think about what caste I would be in and couldn't decide...there needs to be like an test to see which one you might be in.

Great book. YOU HAVE TO READ IT! ( )

The premise of a world factionalised according to Jungian personality indicators is full of possibilities and Roth mines just a few of them. This was the premise that drew me to reading "Divergent" although my awareness of the book was enhanced by knowledge that someone had made a film based upon it.

The novel is written for young adults. Or perhaps one should say young teens. The romance in it, one of the two major plotlines, is sweet and tentative and as inoffensive as it is unreal. Contrasting with this innocence is graphic violence laid on with a trowel. One should not, I suppose, be amazed that modern YA readers can be allowed to wallow in so much sadistic blood and gore while being titillated by sexual explorations worthy of Amish approval.

The book is dead easy to read (a day or two will get you through its light 500 pages), its future dystopic world keeps your interest up, and its "Hunger Games" violence suspiciously hinting a CGI interpretation. ( )

LOVED this book!!! I absolutely BURNED through it. Can't wait to read the next two. Definitely going to read the next two major books in the series, as well as the sub-stories and other things she's written. ( )

The pacing in this is awesome, but I feel like the character's reaction to the events at the end was not believable at all.
Faced with a similar event, most people wouldn’t be able to function or continue on as if very little had happened.
It threw me off as a reader.

Takes place in a dystopian future. It's ok but not great. ( )
