dystopias that take the shock value route Wither And then there is Divergent that caters to the crowd who wants action in theirystopias And action this novel Tyral (Mated to the Alien, 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 5istinct 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 Knocked Up by a Thug 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 sheecides 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 grueling Divergent is essentially a African or American?: Black Identity and Political Activism in New York City, 1784-1861 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 great fighting scenes pulse raising and adrenaline pumping scenes Her imagination in terms of inventingifferent tests and challenges seems to be limitless Something exciting happens to Beatrice every The Logic of Self-Destruction day of her trials But that is also the weakness of the story About 85% of the book isedicated 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 finally get to the meat of the storyDon t get me wrong I liked the book 3 stars means i liked it on Goodreads Divergent is good 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 good 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 Around the Sacred Fire: Native Religious Activism in the Red Power Era 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 than Matched Delirium or Wither I liked it less than Blood Red Road or Ship Breaker It entertained me It promotes all the good things bravery and self sufficiency friendships honestyetermination It is all about It entertained me It promotes all the good things bravery and self sufficiency friendships honesty The Alchemy of Opposites determination It is all about 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 numbersystopiaThe verdict I guess you ll have to see for yourselfPS While I am on the subject of Holy Crap The World is Ending The Anunnaki Chronicles dystopias and have your attention I want to recommend one of my most favoriteystopias that Stand and Deliver: Political Activism, Leadership, and Hip Hop Culture doesn t get nearly as much acknowledgment as iteserves Please check out Neal Shusterman s Unwind You will
