Uld suit them for than one faction What this means is not at first clear but it will make Tris s life very dangerous Heh I m torn now I eyerolled so much while reading this book that I may have permanently damaged at least some of my cranial nerves And yet I read it in one sitting annoyingly and inexplicably entertained Go figure There just may have been some facepalming as wellIt s yet another young adult dystopia based on a stupid premise Seriously it s plainly ridiculous If I had to compare it to something eually ridiculous it d have to be the notion of sparkly vampires I m not kidding Just listen to this Decades ago our ancestors realized that it is not political ideology religious belief race or nationalism that is to blame for a warring world Rather they determined that it was the fault of human personality of humankind s inclination toward evil in whatever form that is They divided into factions that sought to eradicate those ualities they believed responsible for the world s disarray How ridiculous is it Well it s a dystopian Chicago where in an attempt to battle the evils of this world people came up with a BRILLIANT idea to segregate into five factions each of one is based on ONE uality that is supposed to be the uber defining feature of them Therefore we have the brave the selfless the smart the truthful and the kind Except some people can be than one of those the Divergent You know what this idea is missing A Sorting Hat yelling out GRYFFINDOR as the character decides to make a choice and join the reckless brave I eyerolled at it in a children s book where it made its appearance I exasperatedly eyeroll at it nowNo really That is stupid First of all how exactly will our society ever et to the point where such thing becomes plausible I mean seriously at least we can imagine the world of The Hunger Games happening iven current obsession with reality shows And second of all how exactly is everyone in this world NOT Divergent They have an option to switch factions after being raised in one so basically it s okay to internalize the principles of than one of them How will that not make them Divergent So there s that and the sheer impossibility of a person to live only within the rigid frames of one of the factions principlesFor instance let s look at doctors kay In this book they belong to the faction of the kind Because clearly for this profession you don t need the smarts to learn medicine the selflessness to sacrifice sleep and rest in favor of helping the sick the bravery to cut into someone s bodily cavity and the truthfulness to deliver bad news or admit when you don t know something Clearly it would take a special brain to use than one of these ualities not only simultaneously but EVERNo wonder this world does not work well Duh I mean how well does complete segregation work to create peace instead of creating new lines of division of Us vs Them Clearly complete segregation would do wonders to solve the violence causing issues in the world History showed us many examples of that And I cannot believe that up until this point in that universe Nobody Uestioned The Validity Of uestioned the validity of structure I think we ve made a mistake he says softly We ve all started to put down the virtues of the other factions in the process of bolstering our own I don t want virtues of the other factions in the process of bolstering our own I don t want do that I want to be brave and selfless and smart and kind and honest Well duh Did it take centuries to come to this conclusion But "here s the thing once you put in the argantuan effort to "s the thing once you put in the Charlestown Blues gargantuan effort to this stupidity and suspend your disbelief to the point that it helplessly dangles over an abyss this book is actually fun despite all the faults despite the shallow characters despite the many elements so traditional to teen dystopias that you can t help but wonder whether they have been mass manufacturedIt s probably the sheer amount of action in this book nonstop action that makes action heavy plot itselfiddy from action overload Did I mention action Tris the occasionally too dumb to live protagonist does not ever seem to stop moving Running jumping falling fist fighting knife fighting shooting running punching all that while she a special Divergent snowflake learns to fit

As seen on The ReadventurerWe all know why Divergent was written There is no doubt 99% of dystopias published during the last year or so have been trying to at least partially replicate the success of the trilogy Public wants to read dystopian stories publishers want to sell them authors want to write them Everyone is happy I have read a few new dystopias recently and liked or disliked them to various degrees There are dystopias for any taste dystopias that emphasize separate aspects of the trilogy There are dystopias that bank on romance Matched or Delirium There are dystopias that take the shock value route Wither And then there is Divergent that caters to the crowd who wants action in their dystopias And action this novel deliversIn a few words Divergent is a one long initiation trial Beatrice Prior is a member of a society that has been maintaining its peaceful existence by separating its citizens into 5 distinct factions These factions are formed on the basis of virtues they cultivate in their members Candor values honesty the most Abnegation selflessness Dauntless bravery Amity peacefulness and Erudite intelligence At 16 all citizens take a test that is supposed to help them decide if they want to stay with the faction into which they were born or transfer to another faction forever Beatrice s test results are inconclusive and puzzling Ultimately she decides to abandon her own faction Abnegation and her family and enter another Dauntless But of course the transfer is not easy The initiation trials are rueling Divergent is essentially a depiction of Beatrice s road to becoming a Dauntless both physically and emotionally Beatrice s unusual test results come to play too and in a major wayThis emphasis on multiple trials and exercises is the strongest and the weakest part of the story Veronica Roth has a special talent for writing Chicagos Urban Nature great fighting scenes pulse raising and adrenaline pumping scenes Her imagination in terms of inventing different tests and challenges seems to be limitless Something exciting happens to Beatrice every day of her trials But that is also the weakness of the story About 85% of the book is dedicated to action and exercises The actual story starts only around page 415 of this 500 page book Only then stakes are raised and real action begins If you ask me 400 pages is a lot of prep to finallyet to the meat of the storyDon t Cezanne and Provence: The Painter in His Culture get me wrong I liked the book 3 stars means i liked it on Goodreads Divergent isood entertainment I liked it I was engaged in the story I was even excited uite often But something was missing for me The novel has ood characters but they are not uite as interesting and compelling as they could have been it has a lot of action but the justification for the amount of violence involved is not uite adeuate it has a cute romance but it never uite makes your heart contract in that sweet painful way you know what I am talking about don t you the concept of factions is a uniue one but not uite plausible the explanation what a Divergent actually is is not uite climactic finally except for one plot twist p 415 the story takes a rather predictable roadI liked Divergent I liked it takes a rather predictable roadI liked Divergent I liked it Matched Delirium or Wither I liked it less than Blood Red Road or Ship Breaker It entertained me It promotes all the ood things bravery and self sufficiency friendships honesty determination It is all about irl empowerment But as the same time it isn t particularly thought provoking or chilling It never truly touched my heart It is a write by numbers dystopiaThe verdict I uess you ll have to see for yourselfPS While I am on the subject of dystopias and have your attention I want to recommend one of my most favorite dystopias that doesn t et nearly as

Rst instinct is to push you until you break just to see how hard I have to press he says his fingers sueezing at the word break This book focuses far too much on forcing the relationship and shoe horning Tris into the self sacrificing hero role that there s little time for anything elselike a plotSo I could o onand onand on with my nitpicking on this series but instead I will leave you with my favorite scene of the bookThe Shower Scene aka the let s Catholics, Anglicans, and Puritans get Tris naked BECAUSE REASONSThis is the scene where Tris learns that she can t fit in her clothes cause her thigh muscles were SO BIG after training in dauntless for a couple of weeks While this raises a number of concerning uestions namely HOW did theyrow in the 15 minutes it took to take a shower and if she is such a body shamed abnegation Consumed: Food for a Finite Planet girl then why in the world couldn t she just wear her old clothes back to the dorm But we will disregard the obvious logic and solutions for the sake of the plot Due to her thunder thighs Tris was forced to walk back in a towel to the dorms The tension to skyrockets with this completely unnecessary nude scene which consisted of several rape y vibes and the complete humiliation of Tris all to let the audience know that the Bad Guys are really Mean slow clapping in the backgroundOverall not particularly excited
