SPOILER ALERT!

Series Review; Divergent by Veronica Roth

Divergent  - Veronica Roth Insurgent - Veronica Roth Allegiant - Veronica Roth

Short Review;

 

I loved Divergent, it was wonderful, I was totally sucked up by the action and adventure that I couldn't put it down and started Insurgent immediately after, I found Insurgent a little less fast paced but I still couldn't put it down. Then I picked up Allegiant, and was pretty disappointed, it was slow and hard to get into and with it switching point of view it didn't have the same feel the first two books did.

 

Long Review;

 

For those of you that don’t know, Divergent is about dystopian society divided into five factions, each faction has a particular virtue; Candor – The honest, Abnegation – The selfless, Dauntless – The brave, Amity – The peaceful, and Erudite – The intelligent.

Each year everyone that has turned 16 must choose which faction they want to spend the rest of their lives in. After you choose each faction has their own initiation process you must complete.

 

**Spoilers start here**

 

I really loved Divergent, meeting all the different characters and getting to know how people from each of the factions react differently to each other and situations.

 

Tris has to choose between 3 factions, and she chooses Dauntless, I love love love the dauntless initiation portion of this book with all the crazy stunts they do.

 

Insurgent picks up exactly where Divergent finishes and in this book we get a better look at each faction and what their beliefs and principles are. With the death of multiple people Tris is overcome with guilt and this drives her to make careless and thoughtless decisions. We also get a better look into Tris & Tobias’s relationship and we see how they overcome so many obstacles.

 

Allegiant is by far me least favourite book, I hate how it changes point of view, I hate the ending, I hate how slow paced it is and how there is still some things that never get explained and definitely do not understand at all, like how the Bureau says its main priority is to protect the Divergents gives Jeanine the means to eliminate the Abnegation which has one of the highest rates of Divergents. No sense made.

 

Overall Divergent is my favourite book of the trilogy.
