DIVERGENT by Veronica Roth (Kindle Edition)

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.

It's been a while since I last read a novel within two days and DIVERGENT was hard to put down. I like the vulnerable yet strong Beatrice (Tris) and the intriguing Four of Dauntless. The plot is exciting and in the face of circumstances surrounding the protagonists, the choices one has to make is challenging (and terrible), and you can't help but be torn or conflicted by them. I totally breezed through the book and will definitely continue reading the series in Insurgent and Allegiant.

I'm looking forward to watching the movie on Netflix when I'm back from my vacation in Italy.

Have you read Divergent? What are your thoughts?
