5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant idea - totally gripping!!, 12 July 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Divergent (Divergent, Book 1) (Paperback)
Divergent is based around a surreal world divided into factions. Each faction is different and it's "members" have unique qualities and personality traits. There are five factions: Candor, Erudite, Abnegation, Dauntless and Amity. At the age of 16 all children must undertake an aptitude test to determine which faction they are most suited to - But they don't have to pick this one. So what is divergent? Well, the main character Beatrice or "Tris" as she is most referred to as is a divergent - this means that instead of suiting only one faction she suits a number of factions. This means she must choose between the faction her family belong to, Abnegation or another faction - but deserting her family would be the ultimate betrayal.

As Tris decides which faction she will choose she undertakes a number of initiation trials which are completely gripping - what a page turner! The relationships between the other initiates are explored and sometimes they are more enemies than friends.

Divergent is a brilliant read, I loved the new ideas and the new world that had been created. Tris is a fun, intelligent character with lots of wit - I thought she was fantastic and really surprising at times. I read this in two sittings it was that good - I'd more than recommend this book to both young adults and adults alike.

If you loved "The Hunger Games" then you'll definitely love this, but if you haven't heard of that either then give them both a go!

If you like a bit of Supernatural that's a little more adult and YA, you might like the Four Seasons quadrilogy by T S Harvey. I thought it was as good as the Divergent series for it's genre with well rounded characters and plot twists. Definitely one for over 18's, kind of like the Twilight Saga for Warlocks. Worth a look.
