I had the chance to read this weeks ago but never had the chance to review it. This was too great of a book for me to just let slip without having the chance to say how much I loved this.
When I heard, "Hunger Games fans would like this", I became kind of wary. Lately there has been a lot of books being labeled that and sometimes they're not. In this case it is most definitely true. I'll have to say that it's up there in my favorite books with The Hunger Games.
Veronica Roth writes of the future of Chicago where people are separated into factions. This was a very fresh idea that I found very interesting. Beatrice, who is later on known as Trice, isn't like others. Unlike others, Trice doesn't fall into ONE category. She grew up as an Abnegation, but she is Divergent. Which is something that is too dangerous to be spoken out loud. Instead she must chose a different faction, Dauntless (Brave).
Beatrice is super fierce, tough, and someone who can take on anything. Trice has to be one of the coolest characters ever. When she's put into Dauntless she meets Four, who happens to be her instructor. Four is Dauntless, not what Dauntless is now which is brutal, but Dauntless as in brave. He starts off being very distint, but when Trice gets through that defense he's vulnerable. (LOVE FOUR!!!)
Divergent has everything from the intense action, to the natural romance and everything in between. This is definitely a book to read!
