Heh I'm torn now I eyerolled so much while reading this book that I may have permanently damaged at least some of my cranial nerves And yet I read it in one sitting annoyingly and inexplicably entertained Go figure There just may have been some facepalming as wellIt's yet another young adult dystopia based on a stupid premise Seriously it's plainly ridiculous If I had to compare it to something eually ridiculous it'd have to be the notion of sparkly vampires I'm not kidding Just listen to this Decades ago our ancestors realized that it is not political ideology religious belief race or nationalism that is to blame for a warring world Rather they determined that it was the fault of human personality of humankind's inclination toward evil in whatever form that is They divided into factions that sought to eradicate those ualities they believed responsible for the world's disarray How ridiculous is it Well it's a dystopian Chicago where in an attempt to battle the evils of this world people came up with a BRILLIANT idea to segregate into five factions each of one is based on ONE uality that is supposed to be the uber defining feature of them Therefore we have the brave the selfless the smart the truthful and the kind¹ Except some people can be than one of those the Divergent¹ You know what this idea is missing A Sorting Hat yelling out GRYFFINDOR as the character decides to make a choice and join the reckless brave I eyerolled at it in a children's book where it made its appearance I exasperatedly eyeroll at it nowNo really That is stupid First of all how exactly will our society ever get to the point where such thing becomes plausible I mean seriously at least we can imagine the world of The Hunger Games happening given current obsession with reality shows And second of all how exactly is everyone in this world NOT 'Divergent' They have an option to switch factions after being raised in one; so basically it's okay to internalize the principles of than one of them How will that not make them 'Divergent' So there's that and the sheer impossibility of a person to live only within the rigid frames of one of the factions' principlesFor instance let's look at doctors 'kay In this book they belong to the faction of the kind Because clearly for this profession you don't need the smarts to learn medicine the selflessness to sacrifice sleep and rest in favor of helping the sick the bravery to cut into someone's bodily cavity and the truthfulness to deliver bad news or admit when you don't know something Clearly it would take a special brain to use than one of these ualities not only simultaneously but EVERNo wonder this world does not work well Duh I mean how well does complete segregation work to create peace instead of creating new lines of division of Us vs Them Clearly complete segregation would do wonders to solve the violence causing issues in the world History showed us many examples of that And I cannot believe that up until this point in that universe nobody uestioned the validity of this structure I think we’ve made a mistake he says softly We’ve all started to put down the virtues of the other factions in the process of bolstering our own I don’t want to do that I want to be brave and selfless and smart and kind and honest Well duh Did it take centuries to come to this conclusion But here's the thing once you put in the gargantuan effort to overlook this stupidity and suspend your disbelief to the point that it helplessly dangles over an abyss this book is actually fun despite all the faults despite the shallow characters despite the many elements so traditional to teen dystopias that you can't help but wonder whether they have been mass manufacturedIt's probably the sheer amount of action in this book nonstop action that makes action heavy plot itself giddy from action overload Did I mention action Tris the occasionally too dumb to live protagonist¹ does not ever seem

Rmine who her friends really are and where exactly a romance with a sometimes fascinating sometimes exasperating 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 unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves or it might destroy he. I definitely enjoyed it At first I had trouble convincing my older son to read it because he was convinced that every dystopian novel is a Hunger Games wannabe but he read it on a recent plane trip and we had a great in depth discussion about the characters and their motivationsThe premise Chicago of the future is a closed city state The citizenry really doesn't have any idea what is beyond their borders They just know it's dangerous Inside the city humanity is divided into five factions based on moral imperatives Candor for instance values truth above all else They serve as lawyers and public speakers Erudite values knowledge They serve as teachers Abnegation values self denial and community service They are the community's leaders since they alone can be trusted not to be power hungryOur heroine Tris is born into Abnegation but during her choosing ceremony at age sixteen she decides to join the Dauntless who value fearlessness and serve as the society's soldiers and guards The novel follows her through her initiation training during which Tris discovers that their society is not as harmonious as she once believed Making things even worse Tris must keep her true aptitude secret She is in a small minority of people who are divergent whose skills could suit them for than one faction What this means is not at first clear but it will make Tris's life very dangerous
