So when this book went up as book of the month for the book club I am in, I swore up and down I would not participate that month because I had no interest in it, at this point I can honestly say I don’t even remember the reason behind that was.
A few months ago I watched the movie…from the start to the finish I had decided then that I just had to read the book. So long story short I bought all three books. I finished reading Divergent in just 3 days! I haven’t read a traditional paper book that fast in 3 years! (Since giving birth to my first daughter)
Veronica Roth takes you on an adventure in a distopian world where there are factions and if you don’t fit in with one then you have to live factionless. What may have been a genuine attempt at forming a society of peace is poisoned by greed and lust for power. Power over everything and everyone, even if it means stripping everybody of their own free will. Only problem these power hungry people face….the Divergent. Those whose brains cannot conform to the way of any one faction and are thought of as dangerous because of it. They are the scary stories told to by parents to their children to make them fear the unknown.
I absolutely loved this book, it was fast paced and kept the reader wanting more. Especially as the romance between Tris and Four ignites. I am on book two of the story now and am almost finished with that!
I would recommend this book to readers of all ages that love stepping into new worlds and going on adventures!
