The blog for books and movies

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.

Comments on: "Divergent – Veronica Roth" (116)

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and everything that came with it. I would recommend this novel to anyone who loves a good read filled with adventure, conspiracy and a little bit of romance. I especially loved the conspiracy of the book and coming up with questions so I would just keep reading until I found the answers. I loved seeing Tris (AKA Beatrice) grow into her true self, and find herself even through all the drama and intense action that is happening around her. I honestly really hated Peter he was such a jerk, and seriously he cut off Ed’s ear!!!!!!!! I would rate this book an 8/10

    Divergent is such and action packed book, with so much adventure. The society which Tris lives in seems so hard and I really feel sympathetic for her. The story starts with Tris having to make a decision on which faction to spend the rest of her life living in. She has is stuck between choosing her family, or her life – long dream. The book novel is action packed with twists and turns, and you never know what will happen next. I did not want to put this down at all, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone over the age of 13, and give it a 10/10!

  3. This book is quite different to the movie and so I thought I would do a review on it because it was one that intrigued me enough to watch all the other movies and read the next book. this book is romance, action and adventure it has a really good storyline that follows all the way through about a girl called Beatrice until she changes her name to Tris, she is a girl from what the call factions or jobs and she comes from one that is not very well respected and when she is old enough she and others are allowed to choose a new one or stay where they are with there families so when she chooses a newline she really has to work hard to keep her place there. I recommend this boo for people aged 12+. this book was a great one for people interested in a little bit of romance along with thens storyline and if you just want to try something new.

    OMG!! This was such a book to read, as I just wanted to keep on reading and not put the book down. It is about a girl who has to make a choice in her life, between your family and what she thinks is best for her. Their is a movie too, for this book, however I feel reading the book is better because you feel more connected to the people in the book and get more of the adventure when reading. If you love action and adventure, I recommend this book for teenagers to read and you won’t regret reading it once you start. My favourite character is Beatrice, which is main character, as she is such a great person and has a great personality in the book. I rate this book 10/10 because the way it was wrote was fantastic, and I love those action and adventure books. I also rat it 10/10 because I feel like we can relate to her and her personality.

    Divergent——By Veronica Roth. (CAUTION: THIS MAY INCLUDE SPOILERS)

    This book written by the Author Veronica Roth, it is actual the first book of 3 in the sequel, (Insurgent and allegiant) but 4 including the book “FOUR”. Divergent is about a world divided and lived in fractions, Abnegation (The Selfless), Dauntless (The Brave), Erudite (The Intelligent), Amity (The Peaceful) and Candor (The Honest). Beatrice Prior, a young 17 year old who was born into Abnegation she lived with her parents and her brother. One day known as the ceremony, her brother “Caleb” and her had to choose what fraction would they live in. But there was a test, when Beatrice took that test she learnt that she was divergent. Being divergent was very rare but for those who are divergent were killed, Beatrice was afraid but she went to the ceremony. Beatrice and her parents were surprised that Caleb chose Erudite, they were the governing fraction. Beatrice chose dauntless because she wanted to be brave and free, thats where she got her new name Tris Prior. Tris then started as the weak link and she then meets Four but they start off not liking each other, but Four is a handsome man but his past isn’t the best. Tris and Four start to get closer and Tris then got better with her fighting skills and her divergent skills were getting more appealing. But then things start to get out of hand and Jeanine Matthews was colliding Dauntless and Erudite, but without dauntless knowing they give them a serum that makes them obey anything they tell them to do. Jeanine Matthews was planning to attack on abnegation to remove them from the Fractions, But Tris wasn’t going to let that happen. BUT if you want to find out how or more read this trilling, love and adventurous novel, and i guaranty you will read the other sequels!

  6. I must say that this is one of my favourite series of all time. Divergent grips you from the very beginning. I loved every minute of it! It is about a city that consists of 5 factions – Abnegation, Dauntless, Candor, Erudite, and Amity. Tris, (Beatrice) was bought up as an Abnegation child, and now has the opportunity to choose a faction she wants to spend the rest of her life with. Aptitude Tests are meant to identify what faction you belong to, but the serum does not work on Tris. She is Divergent as her results show 3 factions. This is dangerous for Tris. If you are a lover of action and adventure books, then you will absolutely LOVE this novel. I give this series a 5 out of 5!

  7. I liked divergent.

    I liked most of the plot and characters. But one of the main issues for me was that throughout the series, they never even considered why there were fractions or what was outside the fence until the end of book 2. This is very unrealistic and through me off the book as I read it.

    I would recommend this book to ages 12-16 as there is some mature content.

    Overall I gave this book a 7/10.

  8. I absolutely loved this book, and I felt it was a great start to the series. I felt that the idea of this sotry was very intereasting unique, imaginative and thought out very well. I loved the way that everyone was sorted into factions based on their personality. I always wondered which faction I would be sorted in. But clearly working like this does not always work as the book shows. It shows people can be different and be included in more then one faction, the “divergent”. I loved the character Tris as she was was independant, strong and brave. She had her own way of thinking, and was determined to do the things she wanted to. She kept going when things were tough, which shws how strong she was. I also liked the character Kristina as she did everything with confidence and bravery, not worring about the possible bad outcomes. I also loved the character Four as he was not as confidnt in public, but he was clever in hiding that he was divergent. He was an inspiring teacer for Tris, and a very strong leader. I thoroughly enjoyd this book and would difinitely recommend it.

  9. Tris lives in futuristic Chicago were her city is divided into five factions; Abnegation, the selfless, Erudite, the intelligent, Dauntless, the brave, Amity, the peaceful, and Candor, the honest. Tris belongs to multiple factions and this secret could save the people she loves or it could destroy her. This book is full of adventure, action, romance and finding your true self. I love the way the author includes a wide variety of characters, my favourite is Christina, because she is very loyal to the people she loves. She is also a very brave character and stands by Tris in the very hardest of times. She was born into a Candor family so she has learnt to speak her mind, and this shows especially when she meets a character named Four. I love the way the book is written and would suggest it to anyone who enjoys a good action or romance. Overall I would rate this book 8/10 because it can be read by a wide variety of readers and it is very engaging and hard to put the book down.

  11. When I read (and reread) Divergent a few years ago, I thoroughly enjoyed it, as it had a good balance between action, mystery and romance, with an addictive pull which really made me want to keep reading. Today, my interests have changed and I don’t really like the dystopian genre, so I won’t be continuing this series, but I definitely know I will reread this first book sometime in future. I found the whole system of choosing your life’s pathway at the age of 16, which is, although somewhat unoriginal, still very intriguing and often left me wondering what I would do in the same scenario. I really liked the relationship between Tris and Four, and especially the things they faced in the book’s climax. I really enjoyed this, as it was very intense and fast paced. However, I haven’t heard good things about the rest of the series and the ending was spoiled for me, so I probably won’t read the last two as to not tarnish my view of the first book!! Would recommend to anyone over the age of 13 and for fans of books like The Hunger Games. 4/5.

Beatrice the main character is living in a world where people are divided by their traits, and if you don’t fit in it’s bad. After beatrice finds out she is divergent, she is put in a very hard situation meaning life or death. I love this book so much, and you get hooked on it by turning the first page.

    This book had me hooked from the very start! This is a really great story for those who liked ‘The Hunger Games’. I really liked it because it involved a lot of action and had a really good story line. It fits a lot in for a relativity small book. My favourite characters in the book were Tris and Four. I love how Tris is so brave throughout the whole thing and is not afraid to stand up for what she believes in. I love how Four had so much depth to his character, like he wasn’t just the person who swooped in and saved the day, he had a very traumatic past which was really interesting. I would recommend this book to everyone because there is something in there for every person’s different tastes. There is action, romance, suspense and so much more. I give it a 10/10!

  15. By reading the first page of Divergent It dragged me in and I wanted to keep reading. The book is about Beatrice, a girl living in a futuristic world divided into five different factions. When Beatrice turns 16, including all the other 16 year old kids of her faction, she is forced to make a decision that will effect the rest of her life and her family. I give the story a 8/10 for great detail, depth & emotion. I recommend Divergent for 12 years & up and people who like action, sci-fi & romance. The first book is 1 of 3 and I still have another to read which I am finishing off now. The movies are quite similar to the books which makes it interesting, because it’s just like you pictured it while you were reading. A total 3 movies have been released and another next year, all of the movies have great scripts, roles and flow.

    I take forever to read books because I get bored and can’t be bothered spending any time finishing it off. But Divergent on the other hand was completely different, I read and read for days strait. Divergent takes a twist on the whole futuristic theme much like the hunger games. Except I personally like divergent better than the hunger games. It is about a girl names Tris who has to make an important choice to figure out where she is going to live for the rest of her life. She has to chose between family or what she has always wanted. While making her decision she figures out and incredibly dark secret, one that could get her killed. The book is all about adventure, family and of course a cute boy that Tris falls for along the way. I definitely recommend reading this book if not the entire divergent series.

    I have just started reading divergent and it has a strong message about a town (Chicago) after the war ( this book is set in the future) and all the people have been put into 5 factions that have different responsibilities, Beatrice is in the faction where you help the faction less and are very selfless. every year the people that have turned 16 that year have to choose a faction. but beforehand they do a test to find out what faction they should choose but when Beatrice dose here test it doesn’t work because she is divergent. she isn’t allowed to tell anyone, not even her parents but now she doesn’t know what faction to choose.

  18. I recommend Divergent, I recommend this book because one of the main highlights of the book that jumped right out me was along the lines of to never give up and keep persistent. The main character Tris, had an identity to cover and she had to play well in the role of being dauntless, if she didn’t want to get killed because she is divergent. The dauntless leadership and society have always been threatened by divergents because they fit into more than one faction and therefore complicate the system of 5 factions. Amity – kind, dauntless – brave, erudite – smart, cantor – honest and abnegation – selfless. Every person in the city by the age of 16, take a test to see which faction they belong to contribute their work in order for the society to sustain and develop. The book is set from 100 years from now so technology advances have grown. Tris came across challenges and obstacles but there was one person who knew about her and he fell in love with her and therefore has been protecting her. This amazing guy is named Four and is one of the dauntless leadership. I’m afraid I have said too much and I don’t want to spoil the ending of the book, it is based on life or death and I guess you have to read for yourself to find out the rest. I rate this book 9/10.

    Divergent has to be one of my favourite books ever. The whole idea of the factions and their world is so cool & creative. I love how they based the factions on personalities and that each person fits in except for the few that don’t. If I would choose what faction I would be in, I would say abnigation because I like to think of myself as selfless but I think I could also be in dauntless. I was very sad to finish reading it but got excited when I found out there was also a movie and 3 other books! I HIGHLY recommend this book and film to all ages but mainly teens. Divergent is an action-packed movie and book with a bit of romance and drama. You would be insane not to read this book because it has so many genres in it so it would appeal to a larger crowd. My favourite character is Four because not only does Theo James play him in the movie, but he is mysterious, brave and a very interesting personality. But I also love Tris because she is strong minded (and physically strong) and loves to think in the way no one else does. Once you start reading/watching it, you will be hooked! 9 and a half out of 10

  21. I loved reading Divergent, it was so thrilling and intriguing, it kept me interested the whole way though. It’s basically about a world where everyone is split up into ‘factions’, Dauntless, Erudite, Candor, Amity and Abnegation; each one representing a different trait. Each person is Born into a faction, but once they come of age, if they feel they’d belong better in different faction they transfer, leaving their families, to endure initiation. In Tris’ case ( Beatrice, the main character of the book ) she is abnegation born, but once she comes of age and takes a test before she chooses her future she is told she is ‘Divergent’ which means that she could fit into more than one faction, for Tris her choices were, Dauntless, Erudite or Abnegation, but being Divergent is dangerous, as one of the Erudite leaders is also leading a mission to get rid of all the diveregents. This book is action packed and entertaining with lots of unexpected twists.

  23. Beatrice Prior has a choice to make. And, Frankly, it’s not a choice that the 16-year-old want to make. She’d rather just keep living with h parents and not worry about where she “fits” in society. But that’s not how things work these days.It’s been 100 years since the war that wiped out most of humanity. The last remnants of cicilization now live behind a giant wall in what was once Chicago. And in these trying times, survival of the human race demands structuring things a but differently. To be help society, everyone is told a person’s role must be made clear early on and remain consistent, I love this movie and would remonded it to anyone 10 out of 10

    Divergent is one of my favourite types of books, set in a futuristic YA reality, written in the perspective of a courageous, young, heroic protagonist. Even though it was written in a gripping way, I found it extremely difficult to believe that it was not based on the The Hunger Games, or at least inspired by it, because of the déjà vu I had when reading about a controlling government that forces citizens to live in split sections that each serve a separate purpose, evident in both books.

    Although, the storyline of divergent was written in a way that the reader feels apart of the story, as if they themselves are about to take part in Choosing day, after spending a lifetime in abnegation, the faction of selflessness. Beatrice “Tris” Prior is a relatable teenager, as she feels like she doesn’t belong, and is trying to find herself at the mature yet inexperienced age of 16. As the main protagonist, she endures a number of obstacles that take her on an emotional roller-coaster, such as discovering her divergence and it’s consequences, therefore leading to her choosing to leave her family in abnegation for Dauntless, the faction of the fearless. She also faces having her first real romantic relationship with her handsome and mysterious instructor, Four, and coming to terms with the immoral and destructive plans of the Erudite, the faction that believes in the power of knowledge.

    Although at times the Divergent plot was slow-moving, the universe of characters that the author Veronica Roth created was impressive, with each character having a detailed back-story and an array of hidden secrets and abilities for the reader to find out.

    Divergent was filled with adventure and suspense, which is what made me to want to continue reading.
    I would recommend this book for those who like futuristic, sci-fi YA novels, and rate it an 8/10.

    Being a fiction novel this was an interesting read. Divergent is set in the future where people are forced to join a faction based on morals that they are chosen to believe. The main character, Beatrice, finds herself choosing a different faction from her family so must leave them and her only home she has ever known to join this new life. It is a similar book to The Hunger Games and the story line is similar to the game of kill or be killed. Divergent is about making choices in life and how that will affect your future. There is a love story involved which is one of my favourite parts but I am unsure whether I could relate to any of the characters as their life is certainly completely different to how we live today. This is a great movie for teenagers who loved the Hunger Games books and movie because it is action packed and never dull.

  33. It would be insulting to call Divergent a book as it is so much more than that! Divergent is a portal, even though you may be at home curled up in bed this takes you to a whole other world where it’s adventurous, romantic and hard core. Veronica Roth has really found a way to keep us all on the edge of our chairs and never being able to put down the book, by publishing Divergent. It is a capturing story about a a girl named Beatrice who continues to rebel against a whole city. Beatrice experiences many hardships and challenges but she continues to rise above them especially since a new figure has entered her life called Four! Four is by far my favorite character he really makes this book so much more interesting. I think everyone would love this book, I hope you do read it as I give it a 110/10.=)

I can’t believe how Tris has gone from being a weak girl who didn’t really do anything exciting or thrilling became a dauntless. In the next few books she becomes even stronger and I love how she is so strong mined and determined to get the job done without a fuss. But I can’t imagine how hard it must be for her living in such a strict and loveless environment and how her whole family is separated from her and she can’t even visit them.

    Trilogies have really disappointed me lately, the divergent series included. The first novel was really good! I’d really recommend it, however, don’t expect the second and third book to live up to the same standard, I couldn’t even finish book 3 I was that bored. Despite all the Divergent sets up a good plot and good characters. Tris and Four are really likeable and the whole group of friends become people you want to be with. The whole concept of the book is well explained so it’s not to tricky to follow at the beginning, however it gets increasingly confusing. My favourite scene has to be the huge game of capture the flag. The chapter includes my favourite moment between Tris and Four as the climb the broken ferris wheel despite Four’s fear of heights. The only problem isn’t in the book but in the movie. It changes it so much I thought I was watching something completely different, and in addition to that my favourite scene was ruined. I’d recommend Divergent for teens, but don’t be disappointed by the rest of the trilogy or by the movies.

It’s about a girl called beatrice who has to make an important decision that will be her future. She can choose to stay with her family or go somewhere away from her family. She goes through a series of events through this novel and meets a boy who they then fall in love with each other and fight battles together. Divergent is the first book in the novel series and I believe it is amazing. I have only read the first one and second one but the first one I think was just amazing and gave me chills it was that amazing. My favourite bit would have to be when beatrice chooses her life/future. It gave me chills because you wouldn’t expect it. My favourite character would have to be Beatrice because she is very strong willed and minded and won’t let anything get her down.

  42. Divergent was one of this books that you couldn’t put down, I read this book when I was younger and I absolutely loved it. Beatrice Prior’s is apart of a dystopian Chicago world, society that 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 she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself. But as she isn’t just one faction but all she must keep quit as she is now a threat to the capital. The book continues by being about her story of how she finds herself and understands what she is, with the help of love interest four, she is guided through a new life. But as the capitol becomes under threat of abnegation they turn to use duntless against them by using hypnotic drugs. It is up to tris and four to save abnegation from complete distraction but didn’t expect it would cause them to loss everything and become apart of the factions less.This book i recommended to people who are into science fiction and a bit of dystopia. I rate it a 8/10.

  43. I really enjoyed reading Divergent! Although it would most likely not make it into my top 10 reads of all time I still really enjoyed the story line. Set in a futuristic world where the city is divided into 5 factions, Beatrice Prior must test the limits and try to mould herself into one faction as she tries to suppress her other characteristics that make her different from everyone else. She faces many challenges along the way and I love how this book is action packed from start to finish! However, even though I enjoyed the story line very much I found the writing style not as sophisticated and descriptive as I would have liked it to be. Although aside from this I loved the basis of the story and how it sets up the foundations for the proceeding two books in the trilogy. Would definitely recommend it to another!

  44. This is one of my favourite series, it is truly an amazing trilogy. Divergent gets your attention from the start. It is about a divided world, a city that consists of 5 factions. Tris, bought up as an Abnegation child now can choose a faction she wants to spend the rest of her life with, which forms a major part of the story. She is ‘Divergent’ as her results show 3 factions. This series had an exciting and thrilling plot, full of events. I recommend this to those who love action and adventure. I give this series a 5 out of 5!

  45. I am reading this extraordinary book at the moment! It is a read that you just can’t put down. I am not even exaggerating! There is so much happening and it is never boring to read. I am so excited to finish it off as I just love all the characters. They are all described amazingly and throughout the book you get to know them a lot better. Some parts of the book are a bit confusing because it is about a whole other world. My favourite character so far would have to be Al as he is so nice and sweet to everyone. The book is about different communities that are against each other. Each community has different qualities that people fit into by there own personal qualities. It is a story that is too hard to explain, so the only way you will fins out about it is READING IT! I give this book a 10/10 . And recommend ages 12+ as it is hard to understand 🙂

  46. Divergent is a very well written book and always keeps you on the edge of your seat at the end of each chapter. I fell in love with the character Beatrice Prior and Tobias Eaton because they both have strong personalities. Beatrice, who calls herself Tris, is strong, brave and intelligent. Her journey shows her who she really is and whether she really can fit into her world. Her emotions sometimes push her to the edge, but she bounces back and gets back up with the help of Tobias Eaton or Four, the boy who both threatens and protects her. It is an adventurous book that is almost a vision of what the future may be like in many, many years. If you loved the Hunger Games, then you will absolutely love this. I rate the novel 10/10 because not only is it amazing, but it covers a lot of different genres and can connect with many different people whether it’s through the trying circumstances Tris is caught in, or maybe her experiences.

    If you like dystopian novels, this is for you. It involves plenty of action and has an intriguing story line, about where we fit in, and finding out who we are. It packs a lot into a relativity simple story. My favourite character is Tris, because she has a strong personality, and never goes down without a fight, but also inspires others around her, making up in wits and smarts, what she lacks in physical strength. I wouldn’t change anything about this book, as it nails the importance of family, bravery and courage perfectly. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a action pack, slightly romantic read, or who enjoyed the film. ✭✭✭✭✩

  49. Divergent has to be one of my favourite books ever. The whole idea of the factions and their world is so creative. I love how they based the factions on personalities and where each person fits in. They are each very unique and they link to our everyday life. If I would choose what faction I would be in, I would say Dauntless because I love having fun and I think you would also learn to be selfless as well as brave. I was very sad to finish reading it but got excited when I found out there was also a movie! I HIGHLY recommend this book and film to all ages even adults. Divergent is an action packed movie and book with a bit of romance, drama and a few sad parts. I believe you would be crazy not to try it out because it has so many genres in it so it would appeal to a larger crowd. My favourite character is Four because not only does Theo James play him in the movie, but he is mysterious, brave and a very interesting personality. Once you start reading/watching it, you will be hooked!

  51. I really liked this book because it was really interesting, being in a different world where everyone has a place and they know who they are, except Beatrice Prior.

    My favourite part of this book would defiantly be the choosing ceremony and Beatrice has to chose whether to stay with her family or leave them and never see them again

    My favourite character is Beatrice; she is so courageous and brave and changes the whole system

    Do you have a least favourite part of the book/movie? Why?
    The cliff hangers, what’s going to happen next and is this person going to do this that make you get really scared.

    I really wouldn’t change anything in this book I think its really well written

    I do recommend this book to others especially teens any gender up to any age.

My favourite fractions are Selfless and Brave even though Brave is mean. In the end I still love that fraction because they are so fearless. THIS IS DEFINITELY MY FAVOURITE MOVIE!!!!!

  54. I have just finished reading divergent and it was such a great book to read even through it was very slow at some stages. There was many up’s and down’s through out the whole book but my favourite part was when she was having her very fist test to find out what faction she should join. When she finds out she is divergent I really wasn’t sure what a divergent was but as I read further I understood. Knowing that Tris was divergent really raised a lot of question. I would recommend this book this book to anyone who really liked The Maze Runner or The Hunger Games. I would rate this book a 7/10 because they explained extra things they didn’t need to. It just made parts of the book a bit boring. Overall this book was very action packed and excited but there are faults to it.

  55. Throughout all of reading divergent I was deeply attached to all the characters and their stories. Divergent never failed to keep me on the edge of my seat. From start to finish I was captured by Tris’ story. I found the plot always had a new catch or secret to pick up on or link to another part of the book. Tris undergoes every challenge with bravery, courage and skill. As well as these skills she has persistence and resilience and uses these skills to face things such as knives being thrown at her, fist fights and many other suspenseful challenges. I would recommend this book to anyone that loves adventure, action, suspense and a little bit of romance. Although this book is great I would give it a 6-7/10 because sometimes its quite slow moving and takes an unnecessary amount of pages to explain something that could be explained in a page.

  58. Being a fiction novel this was an interesting read. Divergent is set in the future where people are forced to join a faction based on morals that they are chosen to believe. The main character, Beatrice, finds herself choosing a different faction from her family so must leave them and her only home she has ever known to join this new life. It is a similar book to The Hunger Games and the story line is similar to the game of kill or be killed. Divergent is about making choices in life and how that will affect your future. There is a love story involved which is one of my favourite parts but I am unsure whether I could relate to any of the characters as their life is certainly completely different to how we live today. This is a great movie for teenagers who loved the Hunger Games books and movie because it is action packed and never dull.

    This is an incredibly amazing novel which I Loved! I just couldn’t stop reading it. My favourite part in the book is when Trice jumps off the building during initiation first, proving to all the other Dauntless wrong! one of my favourite characters is Four or also known as Tobias Eaton. He is a good character by being strong and one of the best Dauntless but he is also a mysterious character I always wanted to learn more about him. Along with Tobias, I really do like Tris, because she is so courageous, always standing up for herself and others and forever taking risks. My least favourite part in the book was whenever people made fun of Tris because she was abnegation. I think it is unfair and discriminative. I wouldn’t change a thing in this novel.

  66. Recently I have read the movie Divergent, and really enjoyed it so I thought I would recommend it. My favourite part is when Four notices her and gets out of the strongest stimulation Jeanine Matthews made, as he is divergent. I love that part because his love for Tris is so strong he can ‘snap’ out of the stimulation. My favourite character is Tris, as she came from such a simple faction and decides to go to one that is so different, but also because she is so strong-willed and also very smart. I think I can relate to her in those ways as I believe I could be divergent!! I don’t like the part when Al commits suicide because he was such a nice character and Tris feel so guilty as it was basically her fault, and if I could change that part I would. I recommend this to people who love fiction action and adventure, appropriate for all ages over 10? Really good movie and I love the book too!

  81. This has to be one of the best movies and books that i have read and seen!! It is full of lots of thrilling-action and adventure. It is set in a world where everyone is divided into factions. Each faction portrays a different ability. Tris was born into the Abnegation faction, a completely selfless faction. the children of these communities turn 16 they are required to take a test that is supposed to tell them which faction they are best suited for. The factions include Dauntless (the fearless), Abnegation (the selfless), Amity (the peaceful), Candor (the honest) or Erudite (the intelligent). Tris doesn’t get the results she hoped for from the test and the movie follows her on her journey to find herself in this community of hers. I absolutely love this series and cannot wait until Insurgent ( 2nd book) comes out as a movie. The movie is filled with action, romance (but not the sappy kind). I recommend everyone to watch the movie or read the series because it is so good. I rate it 10 stars for its awesomeness!!!!!

  82. Divergent is a very cool book. At first I thought it would be like the Hunger Games, for the government had to split the people of America into different factions. After reading it, I can say that it is nothing like the Hunger Games. Beatrice is living with her family in one of 5 factions, called Abnegation. The people of Abnegation are known for being selfless and caring. Now that Beatrice has turned 16, it is time for her to choose a faction for her to stay in for the rest of her life. She can choose to either stay in Abnegation, or go to Dauntless (the brave), Erudite (the smart), Amity (the compassionate) or Candor (the honest). Beatrice takes the plunge and joins Dauntless, now having to take multiple tests to see if she is worthy to stay in her chosen faction. Beatrice (now known as Tris) is determined to stay in Dauntless, but there are constantly things in her way, one of them is that she is a “divergent”. Tris knows she is brave, and she is capable of much more than people think. I loved this book, and rate it 10/10 and recommend it for people 12+.8

    I was so intrigued by this book… It had been recommended to me by SO many people I decided to give it a try and I loved it! I have so far read the other two books in the series and have loved them also. It is so adventurous and the main character, Beatrice (Tris) Prior, has to make a difficult choice that could her massively or be the best choice she has ever made. Tris is a thrill-seeking and daring girl who can either choose to stay in her home faction (Abnegation) or pick a new faction; Candor, Erudite, Amity, or what Tris has been wanting her whole life, Dauntless. It is an incredible story and I was on the edge of my seat the whole way through! I would definitely recommend this series for people who have read and LOVED The Hunger Games. An absolute 10/10!!!

This is when she meets “Four” the fearless trainer of the initiates being transferred. Dauntless has many secrets it’s holding back from the rest of the factions and there is sure to be some adventure further into the book. Overall this is a really exciting book, and I would recommend it to anyone 11+. There is also a movie which is really good as well.

  89. I have just recently finished reading this book and I think I can quite honestly say that it has been one of my favourite reads. The concept of the “Factions” is a really smart idea and it’s interesting to see how each of the factions are separated in their beliefs and cultures despite the fact that they are all so close together. The choosing ceremony idea is another thing I liked about the book. It’s really intriguing to see how they use stimulations to help teenagers find out which faction they belong with. Altogether I definitely recommend this book to others.

  90. I believe that the ‘Divergent Series’ is a great series and I would definitely recommend it to to girls around the ages 13-15. I loved this book because it includes action, adventure, drama, romance and lots more. I will not spoil the ending, but I would definitely recommend you to have a box of tissues near yourself while you are reading the last book. I would love to just say that I “liked those books,” but I really can’t, because I utterly LOVED these books. My favourite character would have to be Tris. I know that everyone just chooses the main character ‘because it’s about them and you get to know the most about that person,’ but that’s not true, because in the last book Allegiant you get a little bit on each character because you get to see the story from their point of view. I loved Tris because she has such a loving personality, it’s hard not to love her. She shows us that you can be: kind, selfless, intelligent, honest and brave, all at once and I think that that is the main moral of the story. My favourite part of these books was the end of the second book, Insurgent. I won’t spoil the ending for this one either, but there is a big twist, and it really just made me want to read more. I can relate to Tris because she sometimes feels that she is responsible for a lot of things, even when she’s not, and then when one of those things go wrong, she feels like she has let a lot of people down, but the thing is, she hasn’t. If I could change something in this book, I wouldn’t change anything, because I think that if I changed one single thing, it might ruin it. I think that someone that loves: adventure, romance, action and someone that could handle a tear-jerking book, would absolutely fall in love with this book, just like I have.

  95. I am reading divergent at the moment, and when ever I pick it up I can’t put it down. Beatrice’s world is split into 5 factions: Abnegation, Candor, Amity, Erudite and Dauntless. When choosing day comes, Beatrice has no idea what faction to choose; she can live a long and selfless life with her family in Abnegation, or live her life on the edge in Dauntless. Of corse she chose Dauntless. Life there is tough, but the new Beatrice – Tris – loves it. My favourite character is probably Four, because he can go from protecting and calm, to hard and tough. I really love Divergent, even though I haven’t even finished it. I think it is recommended for people 12-13 and above, and I rate it 10/10!!!

My favourite character has to be Four, because I really liked to read his character evolve over the course of the book. I really like how he starts off with a really hard shell, especially towards Tris, and then slowly and progressively softens up to her and everyone else too. He admires bravery from Tris and he see qualities in her that nobody else does. Somehow he relates to Tris in a special way, and through the Divergent journey together they compliment each other’s character – particularly at the end of the book. He’s very brave and when he lets his guard down, along with revealing his secrets you start to get a glimpse of the person he truly is, which was really special to read. The most exciting part of the book was when Tris was stimulated for her fears, I could barely hold the book up properly because I had some of the same fears she did! Ever since I have completed the book I have always wondered what it would be like to complete the Aptitude test – it would be so scary and I even felt nervous reading about it. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants something they can’t put down until it’s finished! 10/10

  98. I recommend the book Divergent by Veronica Roth. I really liked this book because it is all about the future and it is conveys the message that not everyone has to fit into a certain group to be able to survive. My favourite part of this book was when Tris plucked up enough courage to jump off the train because it showed that she wasn’t afraid of anything. My favourite character was Tris because she overcame any problem she was faced with and believed that with hard work and dedication, she could do anything. I can relate to Tris in this book because she is a person that doesn’t want to be classed in a certain group and she fights for what she believes in. I can also relate to Tris because she believes in doing what is right and tries to follow by that throughout all her actions in life. I think others would like this book because it is all about following your heart and believing in yourself even in times of danger. I think mostly teenagers would like to read this book because it appeals to their age group the most and is targeted towards this group.

    Divergent is an amazing book. At first I was reading it before I went to see the movie, but I soon realised that it is was magnificent by itself. The storyline was written extremely well, so that it kept you intrigued and interested for the entire book. I have never read anything like it and had never loved a book this much. My favourite scene in the book was Peter, Al and Drew were threatening to throw Tris into the chasm and Four came along and saved her. It was a very intense part and I just had to keep reading to find out what happened next. My favourite characters in the book were Tris, Four and Christina. I love how Tris is so brave throughout the whole thing and is not afraid to stand up for what she believes in. I love how Four had so much depth to his character, like he wasn’t just the person who swooped in and saved the day, he had a very traumatic past which was really interesting. I also love Christina because she was such a good friend to Tris and I loved her honesty because she was from Candor. I would recommend this book to everyone because there is something in there for every person’s different tastes. There is action, romance, suspense and so much more. I give it a 10/10!

    I really liked this book it is one of those books you just can’t put down cause you feel like something is about to happen.
    The book is about a girl called beatrice (who later changes her name to Tris) and her battling society rules and then being forced into a war.
    Beatrice grows up in a abnegation (one of the factors) family. When the day comes when she has to do a test to show if she belongs to Abnegation or some other factor she is horrified to find out that she is something called “divergent” which basically means she belong to more then one factor and is “a danger to the society” as the society is not able to control her.
    Anyway she ends up having to choose which factor she want to belong with for the rest of her life and chooses one called dauntless which symbolises bravery. One of her trainers (four(Tobias)) is also a divergent and they end up falling in love and battling the society rules together.
    Later on a war begins as erudite want to become in control and Tris and Tobias end up being able to save the abnegation

  102. Divergent was absolutely amazing. It is my favourite book and while reading it, I just couldn’t put it down. I loved this book because it kept me on edge on every page. It is very intense and has some un expected turns in the story. My favourite character would have to be Tris because she is very brave and selfless as well as intelligent. She knew she didn’t belong to Abnegation but never realised she didn’t belong to just one but many. She is an inspirational character that never gives up in this book. My favourite part in this book would be when all the Dauntless are under the stimulation except for the Divergent because they can resist it, and she doesn’t know if Tobias is Divergent or not and he is standing right next to her with a blank expression like all the rest of Dauntless. My least favourite part in this book is when Tris is running away from the Dauntless who are under the stimulation and Will (her best friend) is one of them, then what happens next is my least favourite part. I wish this part never happen and if I could I would change it. I would recommend this book to anyone who loved the Hunger Games or any type of intense book that keeps you on edge. I would rate it a 10/10!!!!!!!! 🙂

    Divergent is the story of Beatrice ‘Tris’ Prior who lives in a society in the dystopian future that is neatly split into five ‘factions’.
    Each faction is different and is based on different human qualities.
    Candor, the honest. Dauntless, the brave. Erudite, the smart and Abnegation, the selfless.
    The time has come for Beatrice to choose with faction she will live in for the rest of her life. Beatrice is originally from Abnegation but when she takes a test to determine which faction she is best suited to, it comes back inconclusive meaning she is ‘divergent’ which is rare for someone to be. Tris must deal with this news in the best way possible because ‘Divergence’ must be eliminated in this society, they threaten the neatly, organized system and that means Tris must make the most important decision of her life, she has to hide in a faction but will she choose family or blood?
    Its extremely interesting and exciting to read and I love all the characters. It keeps you hooked as you met people from different factions and form attachments to the characters. The story keeps evolving and more problems arise for Tris to overcome but she is Divergent…
    ‘Fear doesn’t shut her down. It wakes her up.’
    I have read the whole series and I definitely recommend you do to! Especially before the movie comes on on April 10th 😉
    10/10 ✰

  104. This is the first book in the Divergent trilogy. We discover the dystopian world of main protagonist Beatrice ‘Tris’ Prior and how she navigates it. Divergent is one of the only books which I have been completely hooked on by the first page. The mysterious lifestyle of the Factions encapsulate the broken world that they live in.

    What I love about Tris is that she isn’t depicted as a superhero-like woman. She is not extremely intelligent nor does she have super strength. She is totally relatable.

    As She goes through the initiation ceremonies she begins to discover she is different from the others. She does not belong to only one faction, she is ‘divergent’. But what does this mean? You will have to read it to find out! Tris must decide which faction she really belongs to and what being divergent really means.

    This is a really great story for those who liked ‘The Hunger Games’. I really liked it because it involved a lot of action and had a really good story line. It fits a lot in for a relativity small book. My favourite character is Tris, because she has a strong personality, and never goes down without a fight. I wouldn’t change anything about this book, as it nails the importance of family, bravery and courage perfectly. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a action pack, slightly romantic read and I rate it 9/10 stars!

  106. Divergent is my most favourite book of all time! I got/wanted it for my birthday. I love this book because of the way it is set out and how there is lots of descriptive words. I am up to Allegiant. I am really exited for the movie and absolutely can not wait for it. I am planing to wear my faction colours to the movie. My favourite character is Beatrice (Tris) Prior. I love Tris because she is a selfless,brave and intelligent girl. This book is absolutely mind blowing with all of the action, romance and betrayal. I give this book a 10/10 because I love the way the book brought me into the world of Divergent. Divergent isn’t just another book in a long line of dystopian novels – it really is something else. It’s the first book in the compelling series by Veronica Roth, set in future dystopian Chicago, where people have been split into five factions according to their personal qualities. Beatrice Prior is faced with the impossible task of choosing whether to betray her family and leave Abnegation, the faction she has grown up in, or take the giant leap to a whole new way of life somewhere else.

    Divergent by Veronica Roth

    I personally found this book extremely entertaining. It is obvious as soon as you read the first page, that Veronica has taken her time deciding the best possible way to describing the setting, character and plot of this thrilling novel. It is unlike any thing I have ever read but like every good book I have ever read, it still has links to every day life.

    My favorite part of the book was when Beatrice Prior, the main character chose the faction dauntless over her family who lives in abnegation. This was a very important part of the book as it marks a new beginning in her life.

    My favorite character in this book would have to be Christina, a girl that Beatrice meets in her initiation training for Dauntless. She is a girl who will follow the rules but will stand up for her beliefs and what is right. This is why she is my favorite character.

    Any hunger games fans reading this? If so this would be the perfect book for you. It is action packed and full of characters you will love but it is definitely not a copy of the trilogy about the girl on fire.

    Divergent tells the thrilling story of Beatrice ‘Tris’ Prior, similar to The Hunger Games it is set in a future where the population is divided into things called Factions, there are five factions. Dauntless, Amity, Candor, Abnegation and Erudite. Tris and her family live in the Abnegation faction which values self-lessness more than anything, but in their sixteenth year everyone must choose whether to move to new factions and see their families on rare occasions or to stay in their current ones. Veronica Roth is a highly talented author with a successful career ahead. I would, and have, recommended Divergent to anyone form ages twelve and up, I would also rate it a ten out of ten.

  110. The Divergent series (trilogy) by Veronica Roth is one of the best series there. Like Hunger Games, the book is set in the future and the world is spilt into set faction. Each has a set virtue that they follow. There is: Abnegation (selflessness), Amity (peace), Candor (honesty), Dauntless (bravery), and Erudite (intelligence), and the Factionless (people who don’t belong to anywhere). When each person reaches 16, they must choose which faction they believe that they belong to. Rarely people ever go out of the faction they grew up in. The story is about a young girl, Beatrice (Tris) Prior, and the decision that will stay with her for the rest of her life. To follow her heart of family.

  114. This is an incredibly amazing novel which I adored! I seriously couldn’t stop reading and had to carry the book everywhere with me I loved it so much! My favourite part in the book is when Trice jumps down from the building (during the initiation) first, proving all the other Dauntless people wrong! My favourite character is Four ( also known as Tobias). He is a good teacher, strong and one of the best Daughntless there is, but he is also a mystery and a character I always wanted to learn more about. Along with Tobias, I really do enjoy reading about Beatrice, because she is so courageous, always standing up for herself and others and forever taking risks. My least favourite part in the book was whenever the other Factions make fun of/put down Abnegation. I think it is unfair and discriminatory. I wouldn’t change a thing in this novel. I am seriously hooked on this series! I recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed the Hunger Games, and also anyone who loves a strong female lead character and romance!! Rated: 10/10!!!
