Jaime's Review of Divergent by Veronica Roth


In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her. Excerpt from Goodreads.


Jaime's review....

There were so many reasons it took me so long to read Divergent; one I had too many review books to read and two I was kinda meh about the Dystopian genre I thought nothing could hold a candle to The Hunger Games Trilogy. I kept telling my friends I'd get to it but I was never really in a rush then one friend *ahem Tiffany* kept bugging me and I finally broke and started it after I finished a review book. I went in not having high hopes thinking ok just get through this if you don't like it no biggie. WELL LET ME TELL YOU WORLD I JAIME APOLOGIZE FOR WAITING SO LONG!!!!!!

This book literally rocked my freaking world! I am so happy Tiffany pushed me to read it. I am completely in love with Four he just might be on the top of my book boyfriend list right now and that is saying a lot. Tris reminded of me short and spunky and willing to fight for whats right. I hated Eric as much as her and four did. I wanna zipline from the top of Hancock tower, I wanna jump off a building into a net, I wanna jump into and out of moving trains. I wanna be a Dauntless.

There is so much action in this story and so much loss! I put the book down when I was finished and my chest literally hurt and my teeth ached from clenching them together so tight. Man I bow down to the genius that is Veronica Roth I want to live in your head. Or at least find a four of my own ;) I cannot wait for Insurgent!!!!!!!

  2. Isn't it insane that this was her debut novel?? I can't believe how amazing it was. I waited quite a while because of the hype. I was SO worried that it wouldn't live up to it, but it did and then some! Every time I go to Chicago now I am going to be thinking about it. Also, Four is totally my new book boyfriend too! Holy hotness!

  4. Oh my gosh you really make me want to read this! It's on my original DAC list, but I just haven't had time to get to it yet, but I'm going to have to move it up!

    If the dude is book boyfriend material then that's a huge plus. There is always room for more.

    I was trying to take a dystopian break, too, but I'll totally have to read this in the next couple of weeks.

    Thanks for making me desperate to read this book!
