Helena's Reviews : Divergent

I mentioned on a previous post that I had recently read Divergent. This is quite simply of the best books I have EVER read. So I naturally thought it needed a review. Here it is!

Before I start the actual review i though i would give a little bit of spoiler-free background info in case anyone was wondering whether so read it or not (you should) since the blurb on the back tells you pretty much nothing.

It is set in the future, in a divided society where everyone lives in Factions. There are 5 factions: Abnegation, Dauntless, Amity, Erudite and Candor. Each faction believes that the faults of the world a based on one thing. Abnegation believes selfishness is the fault of the world, Dauntless believes cowardice, Amity unhappiness, Erudite ignorance and Candor honesty. Each faction lives totally different lifestyles and believe theirs to be the best. When you turn 16, you take a test to determine which faction you suit best. Then the next day you choose your faction; whether you want to stay in the one you where born in or transfer to a new one. Your test helps you choose but you can choose any faction you want. When Tris takes her test, something goes wrong .......

I hope that my description tempted you to read this AMAZING book!! Now on to the actual review!!

The storyline of this books absolutely insanely amazing!! Its addictive, moving, funny, happy and sad. It has everything that you could ever want in a book. Its got action, adventure, fantasy and a little bit of romance!! Veronica Roth is a absolute genius and I literally could not but this down!! Sorry for the short review but other than this book is so good I want to kiss it,

Divergent is part of a trilogy and at the moment there are 2 - Divergent and Insurgent. When I finished Insurgent I was soo sad but luckily the third is coming out next yeah!! There's even rumoured to be a film!!

I love reading and this is a great book!! I'd just like to mention charli from life through rose tinted sunglasses just 1 page campaign which I am now supporting. It aims to get you read a page a day and because of being a massive bookworm, I love it!!

Have a great day
Helena xx
