Review: Divergent by Veronica Roth

by Veronica Roth

Published by: Katherine Tegen Books
Released on: May 3rd, 2011
496 Pages
Rating: 4/5

   Veronica Roth has created a completely new level of amazing in the pages of Divergent. She has captured a world like no other and has enraptured our attention and held it throughout the entire journey of learning about Beatrice and her heart wrenching story. As she battles to find out where she fits in this world, she will also struggle far beyond lengths she ever expected to prove how brave she can be. Tris isn't left with a choice. It all becomes life or death for her.
   Tris made her decision. She chose her faction. Where she wanted to be. I can't help but wonder, after it was all said and done, if she would go the same route again. I wouldn't have cared what faction she would have chose, but for some reason, I didn't want her to choose the one that she did. Yet, that's exactly what she chose. Small and petite, she proved herself worthy but it certainly wasn't easy and yes, she did have friends within the faction. But in all reality, having to compete and fight for a place on your own faction to earn your spot, the true answer is no. You really don't have any friends. They are all enemies. You are competing against people who could potentially leave you to have a hard life for the rest of your life. Maybe I sound bitter and harsh, but it's a fight for first place here. Where you rank is what matters and Tris had to fight hard to prove herself.
  When she was first screened, she was tested and the results didn't show anything. Therefore, they couldn't classify her to any certain category. This could potentially cause problems if found out by the wrong people. They call this Divergent. To be known as Divergent isn't good. You could kind of consider it as free spirited. It is highly frowned upon and if found out by certain people, death could even occur. Tris has so many secrets that must be kept in the closet. It seems like the end, but it's just the beginning for her. It's just getting started. The other factions have tricks up their sleeves. The only person she has to trust is Four. Luckily, that's all she needs.

  1. Great review!! Glad that you enjoyed this book!! I loved it, and Insurgent too. I am really looking forward to the last book!!

  2. I felt the same way I didn't want her to pick Dauntless. I actually wanted her to stay in Abnegation, I was surprised when she picked Dauntless. Great review =)

  3. I liked that she chose Dauntless, because like your review states, she had to fight for her place there it wasn't just given to her. It really showcased Tris' fighting spirit. Overall though I loved this book, it had so many great aspects, and can't wait to get my hands on Insurgent.
