Book Review: Divergent

In a perfect world, divided into 5 factions, their is no middle ground. You must pick one faction, and forever abide by their rules. Beatrice is just like any other Abnegation, but she wants more than to live her life forever being selfless. After her results from the aptitude test show she is Divergent (inconclusive), she must choose for herself, without any clue which faction she should belong in.
The choice she makes surprises everyone, even herself! She is Dauntless now. The Dauntless are strong and courageous. She will learn to be strong and courageous, too.
When she arrived at the Dauntless headquarters, Tris didn’t know what to expect, but she certainly wasn’t expecting what she got! In order to stay in the game, she’ll have to hurt her friends, face her fears, and keep her Divergence a secret, or face dire consequences.

I acquired this book from a friend. I’d hear lots of good things about it, and although it isn’t a fairy tale, I thought I’d give it a go.
This book was beyond amazing. I think that’s the thing about dystopia that’s attracting people. It’s so thrilling. It isn’t something completely make believe. It takes place on OUR Earth, and honestly, sometimes it isn’t as different from our society as we think.
The plot was so exciting; an edge-of-my-seat book through and through. The writing was so amazing. It fit the mood of the book, and kept me captivated.
The only problem I had for this book was the mature content. I read lots of books below my age group, and lots above my age group. This I’d say was kind of on the high end. This is the book that made me decide to also include ratings for language, violence, and romance in my review.

Their wasn’t much bad language, but their was enough to add a warning.

This book is bursting with violence. The Dauntless have to beat each other up everyday in order to remain in their faction.
This book got pretty serious at some points. Nothing actually happened, but things got pretty close. It got bad enough that one of my friends just stopped reading in the middle. I almost got to that point, but I knew I’d regret not finishing. 

Despite all that, I still love it!

  1. This book was really violent! The whole eye thing was soooo disturbing! But despite that I loved it, too! It was so exciting and action packed that I had to stay up late reading. I love when books make me do that :)

    And I had a bit of a crush on Four by the end!
