Have you heard of Divergent? Did you like The Hunger Games? My friend that supplies me with good books brought Divergent to me on Friday. She jokingly said that she figured I would have it read by the end of the weekend. I figured I wouldn't. I had stuff to do. (I was hoping to take part in the Pinterest Challenge this time.)
I finished the book about 2 am Saturday morning. Its that good. I couldn't put it down. My plan was to read about half of it and finish the second half Saturday morning. I just never got tired.
So anyway... book review:
Divergent is a story about dystopian Chicago. There the world is divided into 5 factions. These factions are based on different values and each member of society has an aptitude for one. At the age of sixteen all children are given an aptitude test to find in which faction they best fit. Then they choose a faction the next day. Oh and its important to remember, "Faction before blood." If these teenagers choose a faction other than their parent's they will likely never see them again.
Enter Beatrice Prior. A young sixteen year-old girl who we meet on the day of her aptitude test. The results of her test will change her life. The choice she makes for a faction will change her world, her values and how she sees herself.
Society is changing around Beatrice and she must choose to be a part of the change or to resist it. The choice might not be Beatrice's for the making.
Did you know that I want to be your friend on Facebook, Twitter and/or Goodreads?
