Divergent by Veronica Roth

Alright, now where to I start… I am OBSESSED with this book. I’m kid you not, I read 250 pages in one day.
I have this weird thing when I start a good book I can’t put it down, so I go on a binge of reading. Much like when one gets hooked into a Netflix show and watch one season in a day. ;)
It’s well written because of the point of view it’s in makes you more curious about the other minor characters.
Beatrice is the narrator and the protagonist. Her Faction (factions are different groups that divides the citizens up and supposedly is the reason for the peace era) is Abnegation, selflessness. However, there are five including that one; Amity (peaceful), Candor (honestly), Dauntless (bravery), and Erudite (intelligence). Take in account that these factions are very extreme. For example, an Abnegation would wear grey, plain and covered up. They cannot think about themselves, can eat non extravagant food (meaning hamburgers or fresh fruits are not allowed) and can not talk without being ask to talk.
When one turns 16 they take a test to determine thief faction. Rarely, if someone’s test gives them more than one faction, they are divergent.Being divergent make you a threat to other factions but being factionless make you “nothing”. Choosing one changes who you are, what you wear, how you act and who you talk or can talk to.
Besides factions, there is more to the story. Such as love, “romantic-comedy” , action, and gore. :)
I must say this is a book you MUST pick up because once you do, you get sucked in and you keep turning the pages because the anticipation is ruthless.
Hope you try it out!
