Divergent by Veronica Roth
In Beatrice Prior's
dystopian Chicago world, 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.
I know I'm a little late to the party but I can't tell you how much I loved this book! The characters were so well done. I loved and identified with Beatrice. Not being able to be what you thought you needed to be for everyone else is hard. Choosing to be someone different is even harder. I love the fact that this dystopian world is so much different than any other one I've read about. I feel the use of virtue's is ingenious. People today will pick a particular virtue to describe themselves to others. It's so relatable that you feel as though you could possibly be apart of that society. I'm more than excited to read the next book!
Tell me what you think! Did you love this book or did you not like it? And if not why didn't you? Love you all! Keep reading <3
