Divergent by Veronica Roth

Divergent (Divergent, #1) Divergent by Veronica Roth.  Published April 25, 2011 by Katherine Tegen Books. CDN $11.99 Kindle edition.

In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue–Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is–she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are–and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating 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 unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, Tris also learns that her secret might help her save the ones she loves . . . or it might destroy her. (Goodreads Excerpt)

OMG..what can I say?  I am absolutely enthralled with this book!  I was hesitant to get into it at first.  I had heard that it was a lot like Hunger Games (Which I loved) but I didn’t want to read a knock off of a great book.  HOLY COW was I blown away.  It was similar to Hunger Games but so totally unique.  I can’t get over the world building in this book.  The attention to detail is amazing.  I was not a big fan of Dystopian books, but I sure am now.

OK calm down now…what to say about the book other than it was amazing?  Lets see, I love Tris’ character.  She is real, flawed and everything.  I love her spirit and her courage and even her vulnerable side.  And Four, OMG this man is fantastic.  The interaction between them is heart wrenching.  The Chemistry, the vulnerability and everything else keeps you on the seat of your pants waiting…

I love a story with a lot of action and this one delivers with a Capitol A.  OMG it is non-stop.  I don’t want to give too much away but it doesn’t disappoint in the action from training that is NUTS to say the least,  government secrets,  heart stopping dare devilness (is that a word?), bad guys and good guys turned bad, and everything else action…this story has it.

I loved it so much; I have already downloaded the next book and am deeply engrossed into it!

5 amazing stars for me.  This is in my top 5 favorites for sure.

My Teaser:

It will require a great act of selflessness to choose Abnegation, or a great act of courage to choose Dauntless, and maybe just choosing one over the other will prove that I belong. Tomorrow, those two qualities will struggle within me, and only one can win.
