I loved it and couldn't put it down just like everyone said I would do. I can't wait to watch the film version. And I'm on to book two now.

I liked how the book showed the faults in the characters and faults in certain beliefs.
Also the idea that people like someone more who isn't a threat to them and their glory.

I was impressed with Tris. She showed a great mix of the right traits.
And Tobias is wonderful.

This book would be great for a discussion. There are many, many points that could be made if I wanted to take the time. ( )

Voy a dejar de lado la discusión sobre si el mundo que nos presenta Divergent es susceptible de suceder, o siquiera posible. En esos libros de sociedades distópicas mi regla es comprarme el mundo que me plantean y partir de ahí. Así que por muy poco creíble he me parezca que hayan 5 facciones en que se divide a la gente basada en UNA característica de personalidad, ese es el mundo que nos presenta la autora y listo.

También hubo un par de cosas que no me calzaron mucho con lo que te habían relatado con anterioridad, y descripciones de escenas que me parecían incompletas, pero nada que fuera tan terrible que me impidiera leer o que me enojara.

Sin perjuicio de todo eso, le doy 5 estrellas a este libro porque nunca me aburrió, me tuvo interesada desde el principio, los personajes eran entretenidos, había muchísima acción, hay un cabrito en particular que me sacó más de un suspiro y la protagonista era una mina inteligente, que aunque uno no siempre estuviera de acuerdo con sus decisiones, siempre era dueña de las cosas que pasaban, nunca es un personaje pasivo, tomaba decisiones, se arriesgaba, y "movía" el libro. El final me tenía sacándome el pelo del puro nerviosismo y pucha que es rico cuando un libro te hace eso. ( )

amazing i have to read the next one ( )

Divergent is a good book if you like something like the hunger games. Its about Tris(main character) becoming a Dauntless and trying to survive the training while also hiding the fact that shes divergent. Tris meets Four and he finds out shes divergent, four helps her keep the fact that she is divergent and they end up falling in love. I recommend this book for people who love some good action and romance ( )

“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.
