Divergent - Veronica Roth Just wow.

I don't even know if I can formulate words to go with this. Divergent has been compared to the Hunger Games - or more so, it's being called the next Hunger Games, and I can see why. This dystopian style book shares some similarities with HG - female lead, divided population, corruption, fighting - but Divergent is completely it's own book.

Beatrice -Tris, as she renames herself - doesn't feel like she belongs within the faction she was born into. On choosing day, she makes the difficult choice to leave her faction and family behind to join a new one - a more dangerous one. Tris was an interesting character. In the beginning, I found her naive and a little selfish. But this is the interesting part, I liked her for it. It made sense to me. She was confused as to where she fit in, therefore all of her actions and decisions were made because of this. As a reader, we got to experience her confusion with her - cause I sure as hell didn't know where she fit half the time either.

Then there's Four - what an intriquing character from the start. Because of things I had seen here on Goodreads, I knew he was the main love interest going in. And I have to agree with a fellow reader, the reveal of his past was done in such a vivid, emotional way that it just made you feel everything.

That's how a lot of this book was - extremely visual. I can't count how many times I cringed or gasped while reading. I am excited to read the next one in the series and hope that it stands up to this one.
