Odd ramblings of an obsessed reader

Book Reviews, My Favourite Books

Divergent by Veronica Roth


Divergent by Veronica Roth: YA Book Review


Divergent is a powerful story which captivated me from the very first page. Believable characters I love – the edgy ‘messed-up’ kind that get under your skin and become part of you so you can’t remember a time when you didn’t know them. Brilliant!

I read this book in 2012, and it was without doubt the best book I read in that year. I am reviewing it now on my new blog in anticipation of the movie to be released this year. Co-incidentally I am about half way through the third book, Allegiant, and all I can say is WOW!5 Star

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. — Extract from Goodreads.com
