Divergent by Veronica Roth
In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian
Before this novel was published, I had heard of a lot of hype centered on this book. I love a good dystopian book just like the next fan, but I’ll admit I was a little sceptical. I was afraid this book would turn into another generic novel. I am glad to say this was not the case.
From the very first page to the last I became completely and entirely consumed with the characters, the romance, the danger and the overall plot line. I, in all honesty couldn’t put it down and read it within 48 hours. Veronica was able to create a believable setting for her novel and her writing style is flawless. At some intervals in the story I could feel the frustration, fear or at times the anger that different characters were feeling—an amazing feat for a new author.
Tris was a symbol of strength and courage through the story and her determination to survive and fight for herself is admirable. Roth has created such an inspirational character that I have no doubt will carry this series and the lesson’s intertwined within the pages to being one of the most popular books of the summer—if it hasn’t already. There are also some clever plot twists that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.
I hate it when I get around to writing a review for a good book and I have a hard time expressing my feelings for it. Divergent is one of those books. I can't explain how much I enjoyed reading and low I've come to love this book. It is difficult for me to explain in simple words. Tris and her world have become something that I look forward to reading more about! I would recommend this novel to anyone who is looking for something different to their normal genera and also for someone who loves a good adventure and action packed novel.
