Divergent was one of my favourite dystopian stories.
I did have a bit of a love-and-hate relationship with it, but overall I still enjoy reading it.
Also, it’s true that my taste has changed over the time (I tend to be quite picky these days), but when I stared reading it Divergent had plenty novelty elements in it.
Anyways I liked not only the story, but also the amazingly beautiful book covers – I fell in love with those and I still do… And because the trailer is out, I wanted to share it with you.
Just a side note, I’ve read Allegiant and loved it (yeah I know that many of you didn’t, but for me it worked wonders and I will let you know why soon in my review. By the way.. if you don’t know anything about it yet keep it that way. Really, do yourself a favour and don’t search for the reasons why some didn’t like it, you won’t want to spoil it – trust me). Anyways, I reconsidered my feelings for the series, I like it even better now and I am eager to see the movie.
And because it just came out, here’s Tris and Four’s first kiss:
In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago world, 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 alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine 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, Tris also learns that her secret might help her save the ones she loves . . . or it might destroy her.
