Throughout the whole book, the author seemed to be avoiding romance (a choice which didn't always endear me to the characters) trope and for that reason I found the ending trite and disappointing. Other scenes felt underdeveloped as well, and some characters were a little too trope-y, but the story itself was exciting. ( )

Having read the Hunger Games series, I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this trilogy. I was oddly surprised and found that the writing was a lot better than Hunger Games which to me lacked a little bit of emotion. However, comparing the two is a bit unfair; but I will say that this book was a good read. Pun intended. I just have to keep in mind that it's a young adult book, which for me is sometimes hard to get through. ( )

Uma escolha pode te transformar. Nesta versão futurista da cidade de Chicago, a sociedade se divide em cinco facções dedicadas ao cultivo de uma virtude – a Abnegação, a Amizade, a Audácia, a Franqueza e a Erudição. Aos dezesseis anos, numa grande cerimônia de iniciação, os jovens são submetidos a um teste de aptidão e devem escolher a que grupo querem se unir para passar o resto de suas vidas. Para Beatrice, a difícil decisão é entre ficar com sua família ou ser quem ela realmente é – não pode ter os dois. Então, faz uma escolha que surpreende a todos, inclusive a ela mesma. Durante a iniciação altamente competitiva que se segue, Beatrice muda seu nome para Tris e se esforça para decidir quem são realmente seus amigos – e onde se encaixa na sua nova vida um romance com um rapaz fascinante, porém perturbador. Mas Tris também tem um segredo, que mantém escondido de todos, pois poderia significar sua morte. Ao descobrir um conflito crescente que ameaça destruir sua sociedade aparentemente perfeita, ela também aprende que seu segredo pode ajudá-la a salvar aqueles que ama... ou destruí-la. A autora estreante Veronica Roth explodiu na cena literária com o primeiro livro da série DIVERGENTE – uma distopia cheia de decisões eletrizantes, traições devastadoras, consequências espetaculares e um romance inesperado. A bem-sucedida trilogia de Veronica Roth é um best-seller da Veja. Em 2014 foi adaptado para o cinema, protagonizado por Shailene Woodley e Theo James.
