“This is a very catchy little page turner. I don’t read a lot of Young
Adult fiction — just what my siblings recommend and love. My brother
turned me on to Divergent
and it is really a great take on dystopia. It’s compelling to read about
this young girl trying to have a complex personality in a world that
divides everyone into five separate personalities factions. Tris, the
main character, is a really inspiring female hero.”
“In Roth's harsh future, people are divided into five factions: Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Dauntless, and Erudite. When you reach the age of 16, you are tested to see where you are best suited and then give a choice. That choice will affect everything, including where you live, what you believe, and whom you will befriend. Beatrice grows up in Abnegation but chooses Dauntless for her future. She has no idea how dangerous that choice is for her, especially as she has tested Divergent -- showing traits of more than one faction. Divergents are wild cards. And wild cards are dangerous. This is a fast-paced all-action page-turner that held me captive from beginning to end.”
— Angela Mann, Kepler's Books & Magazine, Menlo Park, CA
“A memorable, unpredictable journey from which it is nearly impossible to turn away.”—
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“You’ll be up all night with Divergent, a brainy thrill-ride of a novel.”
