I finally read this. I'm okay with it. I thought the character development was better than some, and I enjoyed the Chicago setting. But I just couldn't buy the concept. ( )

Can I just summarize for you?

Main Character: Here is a bunch of exposition about the different factions and how we must all fit into them. But I just don't fit in, much like every main character in every modern YA dystopia book. And I'm not pretty, except I totally am. I live in the communist faction where we are selfless and wear grey, but it turns out I'm secretly an adrenaline junkie so I switch to the faction where we beat the crap out of each other and love to shoot firearms.

Love interest: I have a secret, which the reader will figure out within 2 chapters but will take ages for the main character to get to. Also I'm super hot.

Everyone else: Beats the crap out of each other for fun and rankings, faces fears, jumps off stuff, etc.

Evil faction leader: I'm smart, middle aged, and cruel, and the author makes sure to point this out by describing how fat I am around the stomach area and how I have stretch marks on my knees. I'm tired of the communists running everything.

*chaos death evil plans fighting open ended for sequel*

The writing is not very good and overall it seemed like a romance novel for teens. Harry Potter is a much better fantasy series, though I'm told if I read the next book I'll be more satisfied. ( )

Read in one sitting. Just the kind of easy read I was looking for. Am going to read the following books in the series, even though they are clearly aimed at a teen audience (I would have loved this as a 13-14-year-old). ( )

Book is set in a dystopian state of Chicago in the future. Beatrice, known as Tris, is 16 and the protagonist and narrator of the story. Chicago is broken off into districts and Tris has to take a test to determine whether she says in the district her parents are in or choose the one her test says to go to, but something happens. Tris turns out that she can go to multiple districts, and she is known as a divergent and is told to keep it under raps. She chooses a district that she wanted and antics ensue. She falls for a person named Four and fights with a person named Peter. This book is not only the first one in a series, but it tackles changes in a world, whether it be the place your in, the person you're around, and the situations you are in. ( )
