First of all I am very very late to read this book, a lot of people have read it, loved it, everyone was talking about it and two weeks ago I was like I am the only one who hasn't read this, I need to give it a try and so I did.
Even though everyone was talking about it, I kept myself away from all the hype surrounding Divergent, didn't read any reviews, didn't watch the movie trailer and so I jumped into it practically not knowing anything about it and I am so glad I did.
I have to say that I immensely enjoyed reading this book, I was reading it whenever I had the chance to, the book was always with me and even though Divergent is 500 pages long I devoured it in less than 3 days. I liked Veronica Roth's writing, I have to admit it's not the best and it's not spectacular but it made the book a very easy and quick read, also it kept the story moving in a great way.
My favorite thing about Divergent are the characters, I found them all really interesting, captivating, realistic and flawed which is the most important thing. I was attached to Tris so much, she was very brave, thoughtful, kind and very smart too but she was also selfish and maybe even cruel at times. Four is also one of my favorite characters and my new official book boyfriend, I loved his personality so much and the way he wasn't perfect, the way he dealt with his fears and when we saw his vulnerable side and also his brave and strong side. I loved how their relationship developed and I was rereading their scenes over and over.
The plot was very entertaining and exciting. I expressed many emotions throughout this book, I was sad and maybe even angry at times and I found myself smiling and giggling at others. So all in all this was a very enjoyable read.
The only problem I had with this book it that the beginning was a bit slow so the first chapters took a bit to get through, there wasn't anything particularly interesting and the pace took a couple chapters to really pick up however it didn't bother me much and so I settled with 4 and half stars as a rating.
I would recommend this to everyone looking for a quick entertaining read. I will certainly move on to read the next books and would definitely watch the movie.
