"One choice can transform you."

"One Choice.

One Choice, decided your friends.
One Choice, defines your beliefs.
One Choice, determines your loyalties - Forever.


One choice can transform you.” 


I'm a bookworm. And I am very proud with that.
Books make you live a thousand lifes. I truly believe in that quote. Books are windows to the world, it can changes the way we think of things, even of ourselves. A book can  take you anywhere. This book is one of them.

Divergent - #1 book of Divergent trilogy by the author Veronica Roth. It sets over a futuristic world of Chicago, after a nuclear war that destroyed the world. Society divided into five different factions that each represent a different virtue. 

Abnegation - the faction that values selflessness in the service of others. 
Amity - the faction who values peace above all else. 
Candor - the faction that values honesty. 
Dauntless - the faction who tests their bravery by attempting death defying feats. 
Erudite - the faction who live their lives in the pursuit of knowledge.

When you're 16, you have to make a choice that defines your entire life. You have to choose which faction you will give your loyalty. Or else, you'll be factionless. No home, no friends. No one to hold onto.
Beatrice Prior made a shocking choice. She left her peaceful home in Abnegation and join the brave in Dauntless. She left her parents and live with her new faction. New home, new name. Tris. But before they're fully accepted in their new home, they must pass this  Dauntless initiation - with extreme physical and intense psychological test. But deep inside, she has a secret. She's not what everyone thinks of her. She's different. And if they found out.. There's only one way through: death.

"We believe in ordinary acts of bravery, in the courage that drives one person to stand up for another." - Dauntless Manifesto

I'm in love with this book more and more as I turned the pages. And it shocked me that this novel is a debut from the author, Veronica Roth. Divergent has a complex story build around it - but she makes sure that everyone understand it by the most simple way. Well-said. And Four, I mean, this guy, I WANT HIM OMGASDFGHKL. Ooops sorry! I'm just a girl!

"Something about him makes me feel like I am about to fall.  Or turn to liquid.  Or burst into flames." - Tris

This is a typical book that you won't just pass, it has a very unique story. And the plot was just too.. Well, not too much but not so little, do you get it? And the romantic part is the best. Veronica didn't make Tris as a weak and cry-baby girl. Instead, she's brave, deadly smart, and there's no chance in earth you would doubt her confidence.

“Fear doesn't shut you down; it wakes you up." - Four.


 "...it’s when you’re acting selflessly that you are at your bravest." - Four


Okay, I won't spoil the story any further. If you're interested, please go to bookstore and grab this book. Fast. Right now I'm having this urge to run to the nearest bookstore from my home and buy Insurgent - the second book - but I'm in this crisis money. Maybe I'll search the e-book after this. *But I like fresh books better. Those scent..*

Well, have a good day! :)


"I am not Abnegation.  I am not Dauntless.
I am Divergent."



Thanks for reading!
Irene.
