Divergent By Veronica Roth

Dear Readers

So this is the first review of the Divergent's series. You'll find the reviews honest and short, because I'm not really use to doing this, but with my hand being out of action I thought it was time to do some reviews of books I enjoy. I love the publisher of this series Katherine Tegen. She has an eye for talent and glad that she is a friend to me on Facebook.

Anyway enjoy the book review from the talented Veronica Roth,

Blurb:
The explosive debut by No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth.
DIVERGENT – a major motion picture in 2014.
For sixteen-year-old Tris, the world changes in a heartbeat when she is forced to make a terrible choice. Turning her back on her family, Tris ventures out, alone, determined to find out where she truly belongs.
Shocked by the brutality of her new life, Tris can trust no one. And yet she is drawn to a boy who seems to both threaten and protect her. The hardest choices may yet lie ahead….
A debut novel that will leave you breathless.

SPOILERS!!!:

A Short Outline:

Beatrice "Tris" grew up in a world where people are split into factions and each one serves a purpose including a group called the fractionless. They are also known in our world as the homeless. 

Tris has now come of age where she has to take a test and choose a fraction. Staying with her parents or to follow her own path. Their entire lives have come to this point. 

Going through a simulation test and her results reveal a dangerous secret which she must keep hidden to protect her life. The secret of being Divergent will ultimately protect her. 

Training in the fraction known as the fighting fraction. Dauntless. Beatrice goes into the most dangerous imitative program. Where one of the students loses an eye. She finds herself at the back of the ranking list while living in constant fear of being fractionless. 


Tris makes friends with Al, Will and Christina who are other transfers to the fraction. Peter another transfers proves to be a living threat to them all there. The more Tris finds her feet the mores she ends up being betrayed by her friend Al. When Peter and AL threaten to throw her over the railing into the chasm below. 

Tobas "Four" saves Tris as they fall in love when they find themselves in the middle of a war. Tris loses everything but she finds her way through it. 

My thoughts:

In my person opinion the book deserves 5 stars for a list of reasons. I did look forward to reading the rest of her series and did.

The author created strong characters within an even stronger plot. She put alot of imagination into her idea. She goes have a great sense of humour to only her agent, publishers and editors have something to be proud of. They should have a round of drinks for the success this book has created. Veronica has done something most authors search for and never find. She does something amazing for the readers. 

To sum up in one sentence 

"Outstanding, creative and enthralling. A landmark book in the Young Adult genre."

I hope that you enjoyed the blog and will come back more for my thoughts, interviews with authors and other great things we have going on here.
