Splurged: Divergent by Veronica Roth

Only a week after its release, readers and authors alike are raving about Veronica Roth‘s debut novel. who wouldn’t? it’s dystopian; not to mention its lovely, lovely cover!

after reading numerous reviews from GR friends, with Kai of Amaterasu Reads highly recommending it, i decided to give it a shot and bought a PB copy from Fully Booked Shang.

The cover is lovelier in person! or in print? *scratching my head*

this has been compared to the level of The Hunger Games, so let’s see if it lives up to that expectation.

oh, did i mention that the author is only 22 years old?!?!

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.
