Staff Reviews


In a world where everyone must fit themselves into one of five factions,
choices about how to live your life are extremely limited.
Sixteen-year-old Beatrice Prior has more choices than most: when she
takes the compulsory test that is supposed to reveal a
sixteen-year-old’s suitability for a certain faction, her results are
“inconclusive”. She shows equal ability for membership in Abnegation,
the selfless faction of her birth; Dauntless, the courageous faction
that has always fascinated her; and Erudite, the so-called “genius”
faction that she despises. In a nutshell, she is Divergent.
When Beatrice chooses a faction, Dauntless, the hard part is supposed
to be over. But the truth is far from it. If Beatrice, now calling
herself Tris, wants to be Dauntless, she must rank in the top ten of her
group of initiates, some of whom have been preparing for this all of
their lives. The rankings are decided by violent fights, random acts of
daring and idiocy, excruciatingly painful tests that delve into the
fabric of your fears, and frankly, whether or not those in charge
despise you. In the weeks that follow her choice, Tris must remake
herself in the image of the Dauntless, figure out a complicated
relationship with an enigmatic instructor named Four, and most of all,
watch her back: Divergence isn’t safe, and there are people who want her
dead.
Divergent is a fascinating read, and is entirely un-put-downable. The
realistic and utterly human characters of Tris, Four, and their friends
and family, as well as their intriguing world, draw in you into the
story and keep you there. It is a fresh and show-stopping addition to
the ranks of teen literature, and is sure to delight anyone who is tired
of the same-old, same-old.

“In Roth's harsh future, people are divided into five factions: Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Dauntless, and Erudite. When you reach the age of 16, you are tested to see where you are best suited and then give a choice. That choice will affect everything, including where you live, what you believe, and whom you will befriend. Beatrice grows up in Abnegation but chooses Dauntless for her future. She has no idea how dangerous that choice is for her, especially as she has tested Divergent -- showing traits of more than one faction. Divergents are wild cards. And wild cards are dangerous. This is a fast-paced all-action page-turner that held me captive from beginning to end.”
