Still into the Dystopia thing and I enjoy the characteristics of the factions. ( )

In this book people are split up into groups there is Abnegation: The Selfless, Amity: The Peaceful, Candor: The Honest, Erudite: The Intelligent, and Dauntless: The Brave. The main character Beatrice is in Abnegation. When you turn 16 in this book, you take a test to see which of those factions you belong in. If you don't belong in any of them you factionless meaning homeless. If you belong in more than one you are a divergent which is dangerous. Beatrice takes her test and finds out that she is a divergent, she belongs in Abnegation, Dauntless, and Erudite. The next day the 16 year olds go to the Choosing Ceremony to choose what faction they are going to be in. Beatrice doesn't think she is selfless enough to be in Abnegation.
She doesn't wan't to be in Erudite because Erudite and Abnegation are enemies. She choses Dauntless. To become an official member you have to pass all of the tests. Beatrice changes her name to Tris. She makes many friends and even falls in love.She passes all the tests, but on the last one a Dauntless leader named Eric injects a tracking device into every Dauntless member except the Dauntless leaders. That night her friends sleep walk out into a war against Abnegation, and she finds out Eric didn't inject everyone with tacking devices, but mind control devices. Her and her boyfriend Tobias (Four) are the only ones awake because they are divergents, so they have to find a way to stop the war.
I rated this book as five stars because it was an AMAZING book. I loved the mysteries, romance, and the suspense. I loved the way Four made Tris feel, and even the way her friend made her feel. I love the Dauntless tests and how they make Tris feel. The author explained things so well it made me feel like I was there with Tris. I like how she and her friends adapt together. It is fun to read about the things Tris does with her friends. ( )

I enjoyed the story, but personally I just didn't connect with the characters. Probably because I'm too old to be reading YA. Lol. I respect the author though and like the themes she explored. 3 1/2 stars. ( )
  VeeMcD123 | Oct 13, 2018 |
A complex dystopian concept I thoroughly enjoyed. What the story lacked was characters that I thoroughly enjoyed. I found I liked the supporting characters much more than the main characters. Tris and Four were somber and did not have many if not any moments of redeeming hope. I was disappointed that the main characters were lackluster compared to the minor and supporting characters.
