I started and finished in one day because i just couldn't put it down. I have an inkling for good reading material no matter what the genre. I seem to always be reading and that leads to wonderful discoveries like in Veronica Roth's novels. ( )

Summary: Beatrice belongs to a utopian society where once teens turn 16, they will take a test to find out what faction to belong to. Upon taking the test, Tris sees that she doesn’t belong to any of the 4 factions, but belongs to a secret faction. She sees things that others cannot see, thus she is a Divergent. This is a new journey for Tris, and throughout this journey, Tris meets new friends who fall into the same category as her.

Personal Response: A few years ago I read The Hunger Games trilogy, and I hated them. I felt that the story became so skewed that the author forgot the main story in the first place. I thought I would give this series a try because I’ve heard great things about it. I was pleasantly surprised with how this first novel went. It was eventful and exciting the whole way.

Curriculum Connection: Utopian novels are very popular these days, so this novel would satisfy the needs of those students who like this genre of books. ( )

At the Choosing Ceremony, Beatrice Prior changes her Faction from Abnegation (selfless) to Dauntless (brave) and has to leave her family behind to tackle a whole new reality, one that will soon bring her back in touch with those she has left behind. The whole thing is entertaining, albeit derivative and somewhat trope-heavy. The characters are what you expect and the world building is good, but the premise beggars belief - it's not really understandable how the division between the five factions was decided or how those particular traits were picked. It is still engaging and the audiobook reader, Emma Galvin, does a great job with the voices. The novels are short and as the trilogy is finished, I'll listen to the other books too. ( )

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