5.0 out of 5 stars Dystopia, 1 Sept. 2014

This review is from: Divergent (Divergent Trilogy, Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
A few years back you would not see me without some dystopian fiction in my hands. I'm pretty sure I read the hunger games in upwards of around 10 times. I love the corruption and secrecy of these novels but as I grew up I became somewhat detached from them and put them on the back burner when a friend recommended this read. Despite being obviously a YA fiction I was absorbed quickly into the story .I have since watched the film, and whilst it is fantastic, there is alot they leave out. I would always recommend reading the book first but this is still worth the read!

Divergent centers round a place split up into factions. Each faction is separated by a certain personality trait such as honesty, selflessness or courage. Children are automatically placed in the faction with their parents, but when they are old enough they sit a test which gives them a suggestion based on their reaction to scenarios. They then get to choose which faction they wish to be in and can ignore the test completely. The lead in this book is Tris and Tris is a divergent. This means her personality is split in many ways and does not fit into any one faction.

Its hard to describe this book without spoiling anything or boring you to tears but I can assure you if you like this sort of fiction it will be enjoyable. As it is a trilogy you will left with lots of questions as this book is really the warm up to the rest. The book really helps you to feel like you are in the world and despite only focusing on 2 of the factions, you get a real sense of how it would be to live there. It truly is a great easy read.
