The teen book shelves have been littered with the life-after-our-world, or dystopian, books, who try to capture a world as real feeling as our own, and try to top the HUNGER GAMES Trilogy. I’ve never liked many of these wannabes, and i liked the premise of DIVERGENT, but still was skeptical that maybe it was just another one of thoooseee.

But man, was i proved wrong! I knew from the first page that there was something extra special about this book! DIVERGENT had a peculiar protagonist that was lost and full of questions, and i liked that she wasn’t some know’s-what-she-wants, speaks-her-mind, never-backs-down girl character with all the girl-power stuff. Beatrice is an odd protagonist because she is lost in the beginning of the story, and i really liked that she didn’t deteroriate over the course of the novel.

This is by far one of my favorite books of 2011 so far, due to the romance that is subtle and not overpowering like Twilight, and the action is descriptive and heart-pounding. Every page was a pleasure to read, and i would recommend this book to anyone looking for a good teen book!
Good Points
Everything.
