Exciting Transformation - Divergent

(Divergent #1)
Veronica Roth
February 28th 2012
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.
I finally read Divergent this month and man I was glad I finally did. This book was nothing like Hunger Games :-/ Infact, I think I liked this world more than I liked Hunger Games. (I shouldn't compare my likeness for either btw) 
I loved loved loved thw whole concept of factions- the names- the meanings behind those names. I loved all the characters. I loveed Tris a lot and I am so excited to see Shailene Woodley play Tris as I think she is perfect for the role. Tris was one kick ass, selfless lead protagonist.I never added two and two about Four, though but I knew *spoiler alert* he was our guy. ;-) I loved the headquarters of Dauntless so much. I loved the whole premise of the book. This book was one cool addition to the dystopian world with fantac scenarios that will keep you reading into the night. Seriously. One thing that I didn't like was the insta-love between the two leads. I hate it when that happens. Anyway, I am excited to read the Tobias's novella and Insurgent. I will pick up Insurgent in summers, though. :D

Read this book I tell you. It's awesome.
Teaser Quote:
'"It must be because you're so approachable," I say flatly. "You know. Like a bed of nails."'
 My Rating:
(4.5 quills :D)
How did you like this fantac tale?
