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 am not a teen- but I loved this book. I was on the edge of my seat for a lot of it.

    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.

    really good plot but was a bit difficult to get past the teen sexual drama. just a little tedious but not a deal breaker very cool concept and look into human emotion/personalities

  • David G

    The actual writing itself is mediocre. The lady reading is way too monotone. Ill rate this overall 2 stars..
