This first book in Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times bestselling Divergent trilogy is the novel the inspired the major motion picture starring Shailene Woodley, Theo James, and Kate Winslet. This dystopian series set in a futuristic Chicago has captured the hearts of millions of teen and adult readers.

Perfect for fans of the Hunger Games and Maze Runner series, Divergent and its sequels, Insurgent and Allegiant, are the gripping story of a dystopian world transformed by courage, self-sacrifice, and love. Fans of the Divergent movie will find the book packed with just as much emotional depth and exhilarating action as the film, all told in beautiful, rich language.

One choice can transform you. Beatrice Prior's society is divided into five factions—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). Beatrice must choose between staying with her Abnegation family and transferring factions. Her choice will shock her community and herself. But the newly christened Tris also has a secret, one she's determined to keep hidden, because in this world, what makes you different makes you dangerous.

And don't miss Veronica Roth’s thrilling novel Carve the Mark.

This book is amazing!! Definitely recommended for people who like action and thriller... I LOVE tris and four 💗

Really good dystopian fiction. I love that the book mainly follows Tris' journey becoming a Dauntless, but also follows Tris and Four's romance and you get to really watch it blossom. I'm a sucker for romance things, but there has to be some other element with it, otherwise, it's way too much. I like this one because of A, the romance with Tris and Four, B, the fights that Tris has with Peter and how he's a jerk, for lack of a better word, and C, the violence. It sounds awful, but its so satisfying how authors describe violence . I'm just built that way, I guess 😂

Some of my friends have recommended Divergent to me, and it looks like a pretty good book!

Tris knows what faction she wants to be in. She has her whole life. But when she comes up to choose for real, her thoughts are mixed, and she surprises herself by choosing the faction her family looked down upon. Tris must leave everything behind, and brace for the competition of the Dauntless. Everything is at stake if she doesn't. Riveting and beautiful, this is a true masterpiece. Take that Suzanne Collins!

the book smells like donuts which is goood

I loved this book soooo much! A bit of romance but overall it's really good. One of the best books I've ever read!

4.5 stars rounded up. Beware of mild spoilers! This is a very fast-paced book about a 16-year old girl named Beatrice, who lives in a society where people are sent to certain factions that they choose, and most of the time people choose based on the results of an aptitude test. However, after Beatrice takes the test, she gets an inconclusive result, meaning that she is Divergent, a very dangerous thing in her society. She has to get into a faction through initiation, which is what the majority of the book is about.

SUUUUUUPER awesome. Although a bit violent in places, I had no idea it was a series at first! If I had I probably would have bought all of the books at once. XD But I have read the full series and FULLY recommend this book, even though it made me veeeeeeery mad at the end .

This book was amazing!! This book is about Tris and what Tris chose for her faction was unbelievable she had chosen to be a Dauntless. Tris chose Dauntless because she thought that being a Dauntless would give her freedom, but it was hard. In Dauntless some people tried to scare her, tease her, and sometimes even kill her. But Tris did make some friends and a true love. Her family didn't care if she betrayed them, they loved her no matter what and they would sacrifice themselves for Tris, [short for Beatrice]her mother and father died. Her mother was keeping some secrets and Tris uncovered them. Tris is Divergent she is one of all the factions, the Dauntless leaders are scared because Divergent can't be controlled and that means they can be dangerous. Life will become harder and harder for her. I recommend this book to for ages 12 and more. Have fun reading!! This book was amazing!!
