Review: Divergent by Veronica Roth
Tris finds herself living a new life after she chooses to initiate into a different faction of the five factions that now populate Chicago. Little does she know, she has made a very dangerous decision because, unlike everyone else, she is a divergent. Knowing she cannot share that info or even knowing what it means, Tris must find a way to fit in and make it past initiation to stay with the faction she has now chosen to pledge her life to.
This dystopic society left you feeling like each fit into a stereotype, yet Tris was there trying to break free from it. The action was well paced and felt like it was never ending suspense. There were a few points that I saw coming- i.e. her mother not being from the Abnegation faction. Also I liked that it was set in the future, yet there were still parts of Chicago that were still there. I am not a fan of sci-fi novels that say the world exploded and started all over. Tris was a fun main character to read. It was easy to sympathize with her and root for her in every aspect. Her transfer friends were great also along with her transfer enemies. It was easy to agree with the sides she chose to be on. Four was a great mentor and then some.
Loved the book and can’t wait for the sequel.=
