Besides I wanted to know why all those people were stuck in Chicago. Why is there a fence around Chicago? Why are they divided into factions?
I liked the characters too. Almost all of them anyway…and even some that seemed bad at first turned out to be not so bad later.
I especially liked Four. Although near the end I was wanting to tell him off. He and Tris are both strong, survivor types.
Both books were quick reads. Mainly because once I started reading I didn’t want to quit.
And in case you are wondering…my questions did get answered! If you haven’t read these books…you should. They are young adult books but I am way past that age and I liked them.
From the front cover flap :
One choice can transform you–or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves–and herself–while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.
Tris’s initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable–and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.
New York Times bestselling author Veronica Roth’s much-anticipated second book of the dystopian Divergent series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful insights about human nature.
