I was pleasantly shocked by this book! I usually stay away from the violent, dystopian books, but when you meet the author in person and really like her sense of humor, the book can't be half bad. Truthfully, it was a whole lot better then I thought it would be.
The cover interested me from the start. It has a way of drawing the reader in, seeing what is underneath the surface. It was beautifully crafted and I enjoyed looking at it.
Now to the characters. I really enjoyed Tris's personality. She had a war raging on inside of her that no one would expect. Every little decision she made, she thought about. Even leaving her home to go and see some foreign faction, was Dauntless of her. Tris was the first jumper, and will always be to the Dauntless faction.
Then there's Four, *squealing girl moment* I LOVED HIM!!! Yeah, okay maybe that was a little dramatic, but hey, its the truth. He was the brave, quiet, trainer. Who was always there, standing in the background, watching you improve on your movements and fighting skills. He was a mysterious person from the start and I loved getting to know him throughout Veronica's book.

If you liked the Hunger Games then you would enjoy Divergent. The plot kept me guessing and surprised me around every corner. I give it 51 out of 51 tacos!! That's how much I enjoyed this book!!! I cannot wait for the sequel!!! Well done, well done!!
