Review - Divergent by Veronica Roth

Divergent (Divergent, #1)Divergent by Veronica Roth

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Divergent was definitely a wonderful and exciting dystopian with so much originality that I am so anxious to read the next book, which I pre-ordered :).

Beatrice lives in a society where factions rule. You live in one of four ways and that is it. When it comes time for you to cross into adulthood, it is up to you which faction you will choose to be in for the rest of your life.

She lives with her mother, father and brother. Her father is certain both children will choose the faction they grew up in. When both choose completely different factions, ones that none of them dreamed of, both children are only scratching the surface.

A war is brewing. An overturn of government is on the horizon. The question is, will Beatrice, now Tris, be able to get to the bottom of who's behind all the chaos before she ends up...dead?

Tris learns how to be a part of her faction, becoming fond of her leader and trainer, Four. As the relationship grows, so does the suspense. With surprising twists and turns, this title literally had me on the edge of my seat. This is one book that will have you thinking months after you've finished reading it. Roth did a phenomenal job, I just can't get enough. Highly recommended!
