it was amazing

The Characters – Four and Tris are my two favorite characters. Four was kind of a mystery through the book – I loved trying to figure him out. He’s definitely tough on the outside, but something gentle lies underneath that shield he has erected around himself. As for Tris, she is one of the strongest heroines I’ve read in a long time. She is just amazing. But, it was not just Four and Tris I loved. I truly liked all the characters because they were so varied in their personalities. It was easy to relate to one or another at any point or time. Even the villains and bullies were amazingly written, adding extra tension to the plot.

The Style of Writing – The author really stayed in the ‘here and now’ as she wrote the novel, which I really liked. It was immediate action and reaction and on the moment’s thoughts and emotions. Not much dwelling or repetition. This is what gave the book it’s quick pace.

The Challenges – I loved the challenges Tris had to face, both the personal challenges and the situations that were occurring around her. My favorite challenges though were part of her initiation. They were amazing!

Divergent is fast paced and full of action. The rising action continued to grow even into the last few chapters before finally coming to a climax, keeping me on the edge of my seat until the very end. It was hard to put down at any point; I craved to know what would happen next.
