ABOUT

Book Description

Paperback features over fifty pages of bonus materials, including a sneak peek of Insurgent, an author Q&A, a discussion guide, a Divergent playlist, faction manifestos, and more!

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

Veronica Roth is the New York Times bestselling author of Divergent, the first in a trilogy of dystopian thrillers filled with electrifying decisions, heartbreaking betrayals, stunning consequences, and unexpected romance.

I've read Divergent so many times, and I think it's because I relate so much to Tris in ways that I hadn't realized about myself until I read the books. I learned a lot about my own character from Tris and Tobias. I learned a lot about courage and fear and selflessness and those are lessons that aren't taught everyday in such a way that sticks. Plus, I have this copy and the extra stuff in it is really cool! :P

Don't you think Divergent is one of the best books ever???

best book ever i love the story of tris and four so cool. I love the storyline and how fast paced in this. I really thought i would hate this book but i enjoyed it so much. The last made me cry for Four and Tris it is so sad. Divergent is nice because they have small flirt sessions. In insurgent they fight a lot, and in Allegiant they love each other but experience some jealousy.

OMG!!!!!! This book just blew me away! The characters,theme setting... everything was on point. Hats off to Veronica Roth.

When I read Divergent, I was unreasonably addicted to it. I kept reading the book multiple times that I lost count. I recommend this book to readers that are thrill-seekers and those who love to read action/dramatic/romance novels.

The book was a little boring for me at times. I really liked it and the ending made me fall in love with it, but there were parts where I was bored. I don’t know if it was because I found other book similarities in this one or because I was reading too many dystopians around the same time.

Overall, I can't wait to read the sequel before the movie comes out.

omg i love this whole series. SPOILER ALERT...... at the end of the third book i was so angry, she was my favorite character other than tobias.also i was angry that uriah goes away, he was just awesome. i don't like caleb, he was really horrible to tris. ................i would recommend this book to anyone who likes a long book with great characters, likes adventure, and are always waiting for what's next !!! ( this series is so addicting )

It was awesomeness

*SPOILER ALERT*
I love divergent I am in love with it but the third book just killed me I cried I sobbed and yelled. I finished the book a while back but I still cry about it veronica Roth why? Why kill tris? Was life too good for me? Okay maybe killing the others for a plot twist but killing the main character, the narrator, Tobias's true love, now that's just cruel. Don't get me wrong I love divergent I can't shut up about it but that ending in allegiant killed me.

I'm with you. Just finished it and I feel like I can't breathe. Brought back too many terrible memories of my own and almost makes me wish I didn't read it. Almost.
