In Divergent, every person belongs to one of the five factions; Erudite, Abnegation, Amity, Dauntless, and Candor. Beatrice and her family belong to Abnegation. Each faction has a unique characteristic; Erudite are smart, Abnegation are the selfless, Amity are kind, Dauntless are brave, and Candor are truthful. Each year, at the Choosing Ceremony, everyone who is sixteen will decide which faction they choose to devote the rest of their lives to. Beatrice is forced to choose a faction not knowing what the outcome will be for her and her family.
I think that the book is really great, but the lack of humor and was noticeable. It didn’t really catch my attention like some other books do. Overall, Divergent had a unique concept, one that could be compare to Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games Trilogy. I am looking forward to reading the other books in this series!
One memorable thing about the book is when Beatrice wakes up Four from his mind-controlled trance.
