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.

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.
And don't miss The Fates Divide, Veronica Roth's powerful sequel to the bestselling Carve the Mark!

Book is crap
DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!!!! Divergent is a book with no redeeming qualities whatsoever. The book's ideas seem more or less copied and pasted from different hits from the past, including but not limited to The Matrix, Inception and The Hunger Games. While the complete lack of creativity in the storyline and ideas would be, if not acceptable, then bearable if the writing had been good or captivating in the slightest, the book falls massively short in that respect too. Finally, the characters. One would expect that since most of the ideas were stolen, the characters would be slightly compelling, however despite the great characters from all the past works from which this "book" has drawn inspiration, the characters aren't only 2 dimensional but also annoyingly repetitive. In summary, don't bother with this book.
