Divergent Book Review


What do you think it would feel like if you knew you were something special, but you couldn’t show it? Tris, the main character in Divergent, knows just how that feels.

Beatrice Prior is a normal Abnegation girl, but there’s one little problem. She’s selfish. The Abnegation are supposed to be completely selfless, but Beatrice just can’t do it. At least Choosing Day was coming up, She could choose a different faction. She could be Dauntless (fearless), Amity (kind), Erudite (smart), or Candor (truthful). She needs to take the aptitude test first. In the test, she is given choices. First, she must either feed an angry dog cheese of kill it with a knife. Second, she must either tell a frightening man the truth or a lie. But when she takes the test, she finds some startling news. She is Divergent, not Abnegation. Still, the test doesn’t have to change her choice, so she chooses to be fearless. But can she hide her true self? Will she ever find what Divergent means? Find out in Divergent, written by Veronica Roth.

I really, REALLY, like this book, and I think my friends would like it too. The plot is really interesting and the way the author writes is very easy to understand.

My favorite character is Beatrice, who changes her name to Tris, because she never does what I think she’ll do. For example, most people who take the aptitude test would either feed the angry dog cheese or kill it with a knife, but Tris calmed the dog down by showing it she was not a threat.

I can’t wait until Insurgent, the sequel to Divergent, comes out on May 1st!

Happy reading!
