Ever thought of reading Divergent? An honest opinion from a science fiction reader is
here to help for a review. Divergent by Veronica Roth, published on April 25, 2011, is a great science fiction packed book for some, but for others it might be boring book thinking it is a waste of time. This book is great if you love science fiction, even if you don't, it is still a great book because some parts of the book it can be compared to in the real world very easily. Divergent is a science fiction book although it does not have too much fictional elements like most science fiction books, making it easier to understand. I would rate this book 4.5 stars out of 5 because although I might not like the story, I think the book would be a great book for others.
Divergent is a book taking place in a city where there are five factions, each faction
describing a personality people have in common that are in the faction. Beatrice or Tris, however is part of three factions, Erudite Abnegation and Dauntless, making her divergent. Being divergent is rare in the city. Beatrice joins dauntless and renames to Tris later on in the book, she later on meets Tobias or “Four” and become good friends, they both are also divergent, later on in the book they fight together from a zombie apocalypse. Tris fights through obstacles throughout the book sometimes alongside Tobias, protecting themselves from the chaos other factions cause by fighting each other. The setting is around modern time and takes place in Chicago.
The book was not enjoyable at times because some parts of the book last long, for
example, the book would take too much ch time on one problem or main idea of the story. The book can be related to the Maze Runner because they are both fighting for the same idea, survival. The author Veronica Roth had an amazing success with the trilogy of Divergent and is a college student. I have read many science fiction books before, along with realistic fiction, many of which I enjoyed and the reviews on the books were close to my reviews. A type of reader that might enjoy this book is someone who read and enjoyed The Hunger Games because the problems they are facing. The factions from Divergent can relate to the districts in The Hunger Games.
