I really enjoyed this book. More than I was expecting to considering all the hype it gets. Only thing I really have against it is how predictable the "big reveals" were. As soon as they were introduced, I knew what was going to be the reveal. And the MC was smart enough to put two and two together for them.

As long as that part of Roth's writing gets a bit stronger for the next book, I think I'll be happy to keep going. I'm excited to give Insurgent and try and then follow that up with Allegiant. I have to see what fans were disappointed in (and see if my predictions for that book were right). ( )

Much better than I thought it would be. Futuristic story about a new society divided into 5 Factions. Each Faction has a different posture on what makes a society strong or weak. Beatrice Prior, at the age of 16 makes a choice as all teens do, to either sayt in her faction for the rest of her life or switch factions, thus leaving her birth family and all firends behind, eventually cutting all ties with her prior faction. After switching factions, Beatrice takes a new name, Tris, and starts on a new life very different from what she is use to. Each are given a rigorous tests to help each teen make an informed decision. Tris and her fellow faction-members have to live through a highly competitive initiation process to live out the choice they have made. They must undergo extreme physical and intense psychological tests, that transform them all. But Tris has a secret that she is Divergent, which means she doesn't fit into any one group. If anyone knew, it would mean a certain death. As she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly peaceful society, this secret might help her save the people she loves... or it might destroy her. ( )

Listened to audiobook and loved every minute. I'm actually really sick of the dystopian thing in YA fiction and was worried that I would be just as annoyed with thi book. I don't know that I would say it's the most unique and mind-blowing read ever, but I did really enjoy it. The one thing that I just could not understand or relate to was the virtue Beatrice chose to align herself with. That seemed awful to me. I'm really looking forward to reading the next installment!
