Description

IThis 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.
Supports the Common Core State Standards.

Publishers Weekly Review

Feb 21, 2011 – In this edgy debut (definitely not for the fainthearted), first in a trilogy, promising author Roth tells the riveting and complex story of a teenage girl forced to choose, at age 16, between her routinized, selfless family and the adventurous, unrestrained future she longs for. Beatrice "Tris" Prior lives in crumbling dystopian Chicago, where citizens are divided into five factions—Candor, Abnegation, Dauntless, Amity, and Erudite—depending on their beliefs, passions, and loyalties. When Tris forsakes her Abnegation family to become one of the wild, fearless Dauntless, she must confront her deepest fears, learn to trust her fellow initiates, and guard the ominous secret that she is actually a Divergent, with the strengths of multiple factions, and is therefore a target of dangerously controlling leaders. Roth's descriptions of Tris's initiation process are as spellbinding as they are violent, while the tremulous romance between Tris and her protective and demanding instructor, Four, unfurls with heart-stopping tenderness. For those who loved The Hunger Games and are willing to brave the sometimes sadistic tests of strength and courage Tris must endure, the reward is a memorable, unpredictable journey from which it is nearly impossible to turn away. Ages 14–up.

LOVE

Amazing thriller:)
If you loved the hunger games you will love this :D

Good Read

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.

Divergent

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.
