Divergent – Veronica Roth

In a future Chicago, society is divided into five very different factions with different beliefs – Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). At the age of 16 teenagers must choose which faction they will spend the rest of their lives with. For Tris, the choice is between staying with her family and being who she really is-she can′t have both. Her choice catapults her into a world of fierce competition, physical and psychological tests of skill and bravery, new friends and romance. But Tris also has a secret – one she′s been warned to keep hidden or risk death – as the society she lives in is not perfect after all and is fast descending into conflict and chaos. Tris realizes that her secret might be what helps her save those she loves . . . or it might be what destroys her.

    Divergent is amazing… I actully could NOT put it down! I finished it in less than a day, I didn’t ever want to stop reading it! The library needs to get a copy of Insergent, the next in the triology!

      Hi Izzy
      The Library has just bought two copies that you can place a reservation for. We may need to buy more though as word is spreading about the series.

      Such good messages for life too, “We believe in ordinary acts of bravery, in the courage that drives one person to stand up for another.” That has to be my favourite quote.

    This book is really interesting, I wish there was more than just fighting and friendship though…

  3. Rachel Says:

    Divergent is such an amazing book and absolutely difficult to put down. I really like Veronica Roth’s writing style and I really like the concept of the book as well.

  4. Rhea Says:

    If you like action and romantic books then this is a book for you! I really liked this book because of the complicated genre it has. It shows fall outs between friendships and love within the middle of a crisis between factions. Divergent is a very futuristic book that i’m sure many people would enjoy.

  5. Hannah Says:

    I love how it is based on running the world in a different way

  6. Drishti Says:

    We enjoyed reading Divergent because the female character challenged her own ways of thinking as well as the reader’s.

  7. Lawrence Says:

    The theme is well developed for a dystopian genre. The setting was displayed as earth in the future.

The concept of the plot, eg the storyline makes the books very interesting and that’s why I couldn’t put it down
