Divergent gets a decidedly delightful 5 gnomes out of 5 gnomes for being just greatly written and having a female main character who is complex yet strong all at the same time. This is one of the most intense books that I've read in a long time. It may be almost 500 pages long but trust me you will find yourself flying through the pages embracing every edge of your seat moment.
In this world people live in factions based on virtues. The factions are Erudite, Dauntless, Abnegation, Candor and Amity. Seeing the world and these factions really make you think about what the future could end up looking like.
The main character Beatrice Pryor is of the Abnegation faction (selfless people) has a choice to make. When you turn sixteen you have to choose if you'll continue to live with the same faction or be initiated into another. Let's just says that Beatrice makes some interesting choices.
There are so many surprises in this book and this is one truly butt kicking heroine. You'll find yourself rooting for Beatrice/Tris to figure out what she wants for herself and to see how she might change the world.
This book is full of edge of your seat suspense because you never know what's going to happen next or who you can trust. This book provides a great look at a dystopian world and the characters are all well realized and will leave you drooling for the next book.
