Write a review of the book, including plot points, if you wish: 

This book is awkwardly romantic; teen dating with adult?
This book has a long training period.
This book is "want-to-flip-page" fast book.

Similar authors or titles?: 

I thought that Divergent is very similar to The Giver. In the Giver, leaders assign 12 year old's future while Divergent has aptitude test. The Giver has long training period as well as Divergent. I think there is a lot of similar dystopian books in library.

Would you recommend this book?: 

I recommend it but it do not give any maximum in my opinion.

Your Review: 

I loved this book! It's been a favorite of mine for a while, along with Insurgent and Allegiant. And for all the readers wanting spoilers for the book, I'm not one who likes spoilers. I like to be surprised. But I will tell you this: Tris marries Peter, Eric gets pregnant, Christina and Tobias run away together, Will joins the factionless, and Caleb confesses his love for Marcus. :-)

Your Review:
I had seen an article on the upcoming movie and decided to try reading the book. I enjoyed the concept of a dystopian future that organized society based on ideologies that were related to personality traits. It was a page turner and I think it'll be a hit with anyone looking for a fresh young adult series.

What would you do if your entire life you were raised to believe and follow one set of rules, be one way, one personality, in one faction? And then, when you were 16, you were tested to see if you truly belonged where you were? Then, of course, you must add in the variables: There are only four molds (fractions) and you must fit one of them. If you move to another faction, there is the high chance that you will never see your family again.
But what if you didn't fit the mold? You were different? And if told anyone this, you had the potential to be killed? This is what happens to Beatrice Prior, a girl who feels that she will never fit into her faction, Abnegation, which values selflessness. But to choose to leave a family, abandon all you know, how will Beatrice handle even the idea?
This story is a young-adult fiction sci-fi dystopian story. It is compelling and full of suspense, an exciting read that will be difficult to set down. For anyone who loves compelling dystopian.

I started to read this book with an idea that it was just another book that everyone had been doting over. I was pleasantly surprized and finished it in 2 days. It is a dystopian novel with romance, adventure, danger, and suspense. Veronica Roth creates relatable characters, Beatrice, Four, and their friends. The only down side to this series is, the final book dosen't come out until next year! This book is deffinately worth your time!

Similar authors or titles?: 

Insurgent, the sequel to Divergent. A great book also.

Would you recommend this book?: 

Deffinately. I've read an extensive amount of books and these have ranked high in my list of the best.
