Book Review: “Divergent” by Veronica Roth


Well if you’ve read my post on Book Hangovers!, then you would know how much I love “The Hunger Games” (and Peeta, I LOVE Peeta). So when I was looking up Shailene Woodley for Movie Update: The Fault in Our Stars Cast, I came across Divergent. Now, don’t get me wrong, I don’t live in a bubble. I had heard of it before (I had seen THIS on Buzzfeed), but I never really paid much attention to it. I looked up the trailer and I was intrigued, but also felt like it was just a wanna-be “The Hunger Games”. I gave it a shot anyways, and I think it has been the smartest decision I have ever made in my life! Yes, both books are about a tyrannical government and a girl who has the power to stop it, but it’s told in a completely different way. “Divergent” is about a girl named Beatrice (Tris), who is not like most of the others from the other factions and her own. She is divergent, which means that she doesn’t belong to I just one faction; she must choose one and it could mean leaving her family behind forever. But being divergent is a dangerous thing to be, especially since there is so much tension between the factions. Let me just say that Tris is one bad ass chick; she’s not strong or big but she has more balls than anyone else. Also, there is Four, the initiates’ trainer. Oh boy, if I wasn’t so in love with Peeta I would take him away with me and never look back! Can’t I just have them both? This book was outstanding! I went to theme parks all weekend and I looked like the most anti-social person ever because I was reading off of my phone’s kindle app the entire time and when we would get home, I would run upstairs and read until late at night. There were points in the book where I would have to put it down because I was getting so anxious, I couldn’t even think straight. The ending is phenomenal and it made me want to go ahead and buy Insurgent but I can’t yet because, since I read the entire weekend, I forgot that there was this thing called homework that cruel professors give students (don’t they understand that I have books to read?). But I want to space my time out anyways because the last book doesn’t come out until October and I don’t think my nerves could take it! But for sure I’m going to be first in line to see Divergent when it comes out in March!
