Divergent by Veronica Roth book review

Synopsis by Goodreads.:
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 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.

Rated by me: 4 out of 5 stars!

My thoughts: 
Usually I do not like dystopian novels, but to my surprise this one was very awesome and well written! :) The book seems a little intimidating with almost 500 pages but the time flies when you first open it up. This book was recommended to me by my cousin and for some reason I tend to dislike books when I am forced to read them. ( like in school) But try as I might I couldn't get myself to hate this book. Though the main character, Beatrice, was a little annoying, I found myself able to look past her tendencies and was overall able to enjoy this book as a whole. 


  1. I've been meaning to buy and read this one for ages now!!

  2. I loved this book. I liked Tris though. The world she lived in just fascinated me so much I couldn't help enjoying the book. It was better than I expected too!


Comments make me smile. :]
