This first book in Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times bestselling Divergent trilogy is the novel the inspired the major motion picture starring Shailene Woodley, Theo James, and Kate Winslet. This dystopian series set in a futuristic Chicago has captured the hearts of millions of teen and adult readers.
Perfect for fans of the Hunger Games and Maze Runner series, Divergent and its sequels, Insurgent and Allegiant, are the gripping story of a dystopian world transformed by courage, self-sacrifice, and love. Fans of the Divergent movie will find the book packed with just as much emotional depth and exhilarating action as the film, all told in beautiful, rich language.
One choice can transform you. Beatrice Prior's society is divided into five factions—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). Beatrice must choose between staying with her Abnegation family and transferring factions. Her choice will shock her community and herself. But the newly christened Tris also has a secret, one she's determined to keep hidden, because in this world, what makes you different makes you dangerous.

If you loved the hunger games you will love this :D
Divergent comes packed with all the features that make up a good novel- action, drama, comedy, and romance. As for the plot, it's creative. But it does seem like many authors are using futuristic societies as the main idea in their novels (Matched by Ally Condie, for example) These books have striking similarities. Therefore, for the most part, I could easily guess what was going to happen next. Though, Divergent still had some tricks up its sleeve that kept me reading. However, I wasn't all too satisfied with the Sopranos-style ending. Nevertheless, this book has powerful meaning and I look forward to its sequel.
Amazing. I thought Divergent was completely unpredictable and thrilling. Very well written and definitely one of the best books I've ever read. Theme is a lot like The Hunger Games and Matched but its also very unique. Couldn't put it down. Divergent is a must read.
