REVIEW: Divergent by Veronica Roth

Divergent - Veronica Roth

Roth's Vision of futuristic Chicago may attract unfair comparisons to The Hunger Games, It is still different in many ways.


The Dystopian genre might be "blooming" these days, but Divergent still offers many unique aspects. What will it be like if we divide amongst ourselves to eliminate evil, yet evil still creeps back? This book shows the vulnerability of man, and our lust for power, in which in our present time, is not uncommon.


In this novel, Beatrice "Tris" Prior is torn in her choices, yet in the end, whatever choice she made is an act of bravery and selflessness. I do find these traits amazing, yet I still find it hard to like Tris. The narration of hers displays blank personality in contrast to the brisk pace of the story. Still, I find myself hooked to Divergent, and the last chapter clearly leaves many questions unanswered.
