Review: Divergent by Veronica Roth
Divergent was so incredibly fast-paced that I finished it within two days. Even though it has close to five hundred pages, it doesn’t feel like so long a read. From the moment we meet Beatrix, later shortened to Tris, I was hooked.
I like this book so much that I don’t have enough words to write a full review. There is not one piece of Divergent that I didn’t like. I loved the romance between Tris and Four. I was swooning after fifty pages, which is a record for me. I love the sense of community in the Dauntless. I loved Tris as a character, I loved that she wasn’t a total goody-goody. I loved the simple and clean writing style. And I loved the holy-crap-the-world-is-going-down exciting ending.
The most incredible thing about Divergent is that it’s a debut novel. That means Ms Roth is only just getting started. There is going to be so much awesome in her future…
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are–and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she’s chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she’s kept hidden from everyone because she’s been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.
