Divergent by Veronica Roth


The Skinny: One of my favorite stories. You should read it. Run along and pick up your copy.
Divergent is a memorable story about a dystopian society in which adolescents are sorted into thematic factions, including Candor, Erudite, Abnegation, Dauntless, and Amity. Unfortunately, a hat is uninvolved in the sorting ceremony. Adolescents are hardcore in Divergent-land and prefer spilling their blood when making a decision.
Divergent is imaginative and wonderful. If you like dystopian literature, you should read this novel. The characters are well-developed, the plot is unique, and the writing is excellent. I really wish I wrote this story!
Sometimes when I am on a bad date, I think about which faction I would select. I have narrowed it down to Erudite and Amity. I learn and read all day as it is, so Erudite would not be too much of an adjustment. I would spend my days collecting languages and learning new words. Amity sounds exactly like a hippie commune but without all the drugs and promiscuity (bummer). If I were in Amity, I could be lovey, free, and happy year around.
I really enjoyed Divergent, and I highly recommend it
