Book Review: Divergent, by Veronica Roth

divergent_coverDivergent by Veronica Roth is a great dystopian novel where a girl is a brave enough to go against her family and choose her own way. She portrays bravery, independence, and confidence.

This story is about a society with five factions: the Dauntless, daredevils and rebels; the Erudite, the knowledgeable group; the Amity, the peaceful people; the Candor, the honest people; and the Abnegation, the people who are selfless. The main character of the story is a girl named Beatrice. She starts off in the Abnegation with her brother but when she turns sixteen she must choose a certain faction. As she takes the test that would determine what faction she will go into, she fits into three of the factions– which is almost impossible so she is determined what is called Divergent.

In the ceremony to choose her faction, she chooses Dauntless and her brother chooses Erudite. She goes off to Dauntless and passes their very hard initiation. Through the initiation she experiences things she had never experienced in her life before. This would consist of death, betrayal, and danger.

This is a very good, interesting book and I encourage you to read it. I say this book would fit the age group of people from 13 and up. It is a great book and once you finish this first one, you won’t be able to keep yourself from picking up the next. If you’re looking for a good read, then this is your book.

  1. Divergent is awesome! Seriously-if you are human you should read this book. And with the movie coming up…you have no excuses! (I dare someone to find a reason why they shouldn’t read this book-because thats impossible)
