In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, 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 to determine who her friends really are'and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating 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 a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

Debut author Veronica Roth bursts onto the literary scene with the first book in the Divergent series'dystopian thrillers filled with electrifying decisions, heartbreaking betrayals, stunning consequences, and unexpected romance.

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this novel. Even though I was completely lost at the beginning, I was soon pulled in by the characters and the story line. I found myself looking forward to time in the car because it would allow me to listen to the story of Trice and Four as it unfolded.

  • Stephen Henry

    This is a great book, if you are a fan of the Hunger games you will love this series. It gets just a little predictable in book two. but still grate. Can\'t wait to see the movie.

  • Christopher Long

    Entertaining, as long as you don\'t think to long/hard on the obvious plot problems. Then there\'s that tricky issue of the romance between an adult & a child that would ultimately land 4/Tobias in jail if it happened in the real world.

  • Suzanne Romero

    Good book. Love the strong female character although her indifference frustrates me at times. I like that the book didn\'t get bogged down with sappy, cloying infatuations; it is there but tastefully incorporated. Exciting plot and keeps you guessing where it will lead. I was left anticipating the next book.

  • Yoshi Begoshi

    I\'m crazy for this series as well! Hopefully other people take the time to listen to this!

    I loved this book. I strong female lead who is not weak and knows what she wants is refreshing. You will not be disappointed with this book or the narrator.
