Book Review: Divergent by Veronica Roth weeks book review is on Divergent by Veronica Roth.

Keith read this book first because he saw the trailer for the movie. I had no intention of reading it until one day, he was taking a long time to go somewhere and the book HAPPENED to be sitting on the counter next to me.  I started reading on a Thursday night, and finished it Sunday evening.

I love books like this.  The ones that are impossible to put down.  I read in every spare moment, in the bathtub, while I was cooking dinner, at bed time, waiting at the eye doctor with my mom.  I just read and read.

LOVED every second of it.  The first chapter had me so involved that I couldn't stop reading.

Then it gets REALLY good, there is a little love, a little fighting, and a lot of really great story lines.

When I saw this book, I was like "Oh great, another Hunger Games knock-off, but BOY was I wrong.  This was nothing like the Hunger Games and dare I say, it was even better.

In this post-apocolyptic world, society is divided into five factions.
  • Abnegation (the selfless)
  • Erudite (the knowledge seekers)
  • Dauntless (the brave)
  • Amity (the peacemakers/peacekeepers)
  • Candor (the honest)
Tris is a young Abnegation girl who has reached the age where she must take the Aptitude Test to determine which faction she truly belongs to.  I won't spoil it.

She takes the test, and chooses a faction.  Then she makes some friends, and has to go through initiation.  She finds a boy named Four, and he is awesome ((I told Keith that I have a fiction crush on him) and I actually had a dream about him last night!)  He and she get through a bunch of stuff, and then crap gets real.

I can't tell you anymore because I don't want to spoil it.  So go read this book because I give it a 5/5 stars!

It is so well written, and the way Veronica Roth describes and writes about things, it makes it seem like I am there, and I can actually see and feel everything that happens.

The movie came out on March 21, 2014.  I plan to write a review on the movie as soon as I see it.

I'll let you know, until then... Watch the trailer.
