Divergent - Veronica Roth

This Book Is Definitely A 5 Star.
 Divergent is an incredible and unforgettable read. I enjoyed every bit of Divergent. The Characters, the plot, the setting – Everything!  Divergent is full of action, tension and edge.

Beatrice is 16 and must choose which faction she wants to go by for the rest of her life. No pressure, right? Anyways in this world there are factions which include Candor (honesty), Abnegation (selfless), Dauntless (bravery), Amity (the peacekeepers), and Erudite (intelligence).  There is also Divergent which is a mix of the factions above and being Divergent is very DANGEROUS. Can you guess which one Tris is?

Not liking the faction she was born in which is Abnegation Beatrice chooses Dauntless which surprises her family and herself. The faction she picks is not going to be all Oh Happy Days. Oh no, first you must win a place in the Dauntless and Tris learns she needs to toughen up or else.
Whilst fighting for her place in Dauntless Tris catches the eye of Four.  A man who oozes of bravery, tough and hot. This was a very nice subplot that made Divergent even better and it was kinda awesome how there was this sweet and delicate love thing going on with the main character whilst all this crazy stuff was happening.

 Also I loved seeing Beatrice changed throughout the story. From being kind of weak and too small to defend herself changed into strong and courageous. A badass.

Unpredicted things took place in Divergent that will make you left gasping for more and make your heart race. If you loved Hunger Games and are into dystopian books then this is the book for you, my friend.
The Ending. I was speechless. I was all like  
“NO! Veronica, how could you? Wait! Wait, what’s going to happen-?”
The ending was heart stopping. It left me wanting more and more.  I was left flabbergasted.  Read the book people or you will miss out BIG TIME.

Veronica Roth has made an epic addition in the dystopian genre that will set expectations very, very high.  I cannot wait to read more about Tris in the second book Insurgent which will come out May 1st 2012 by HarperTeen.
