Book Review: Divergent Veronica Roth

Divergent (Divergent, #1)Divergent by Veronica Roth
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Divergent was a really good read! I would have given it a five but like Tris, I am a 'stiff' :D but honestly, I don't like romance in my novel especially the ones that are packed with action! Divergent is full of it! It sort of reminded me of the hunger games in its mood, the way the kids were forced to fight each other in the Dauntless faction. But it wasn't too gory (I also have a weak stomach!) I think the author could have done better with the transition of Tris from soft to hard. She always knew that she was not selfless like the rest of her family but I never saw her act any different from her family not to mention how fast she fell for Four. The author did really good job with keeping the pace of the story. I was floored by the ending!!!!!! I wont say anything so as not to ruin it for anyone else but I was not expecting some of the events that happened.

My favorite characters include

Tris's mom Tris Christina Four Uriah

I loved Divergent, but I am halfway through Insurgent and am not enjoying it like I did Divergent. Did anyone else have this problem?
