Divergent by Veronica Roth

Synopsis: Beatrice "Tris" Prior has reached the fateful age of sixteen, the stage at which teenagers in Veronica Roth's dystopian Chicago must select which of five factions to join for life. Each faction represents a virtue: Candor, Abnegation, Dauntless, Amity, and Erudite. To the surprise of herself and her selfless Abnegation family, she chooses Dauntless, the path of courage. Her choice exposes her to the demanding, violent initiation rites of this group, but it also threatens to expose a personal secret that could place her in mortal danger. Veronica Roth's young adult Divergent trilogy launches with a captivating adventure about love and loyalty playing out under most extreme circumstances.

Review: I really enjoy a good dystopian novel and Divergent was definitely that. I love the world that Roth has created, with the five different factions and how differently they are and how they interact with each other. I liked our heroine Tris, for the most part. It did seem like she was trying really hard to be a Dauntless and I would have liked to see her try and hang out to her Abnegation background…just a little bit. I liked that she was tough and could control her fears and the situations around her. I liked Four as well, and their relationship. I normally complain when a relationship moves too quickly, but theirs moved a little slowly for me. I would have liked to see a little more bonding. Overall, a very fun dystopian novel. I got sucked in and couldn’t put it down. I liked the characters and setting and am very curious to see what happens next.
