Rating: 5/5 stars.
My thought process while reading this book:
“oh my god, oh my god, OH MY GOD! that was amazing, wow… oh my god I can’t believe she just did that! OH SNAP FIGHTING OH SNAP BLOOD OH MAN that was sick… man this book is awesome. OH SNAP SHE DID NOT JUST-”
You get the point. My Latin teacher would be very unhappy with me for saying (er, thinking) “oh my god” so many times. But Divergent by Veronica Roth is one of those books that causes mind bombs to explode inside your head constantly, creating a void that can only be filled by reading more of the amazing novel.
I’m not going to bother with a synopsis of the story as you can find one here or by reading other reviews, but in a nutshell Divergent contains action, romance, dystopia, and essentially brain-blowing perfection. I dare compare it to – yes, you guessed it- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Though the books are very different, I’m pretty sure if you enjoyed one you will enjoy the other.
And though my crazy little introduction to this
fanboying mess review may make it seem like this book is pure nonstop action, the parts that weren’t action-packed still shined superbly. The action was pretty intense though. Very intense indeed.
One of the best young-adult releases this year, Divergent will leave readers craving for the second book of this soon to be super popular series.

Thomas, I’m so wanting to read this! But I can’t because I’ve finally begun my exams 😦 I read your review then I saw the amazon ones and I can’t wait. I’m thinking that this might be a good book for a plane ride but if everything goes as planned I’ll have to wait till December to read it. That would be stupid to wait so long … But still … Okay I’m shutting up! Though let me tell you, the kindle version is a little more expensive compared to the paperback, I don’t understand it.
I think you would love Divergent, Devina! I empathize with how you have exams, it’s unfortunate that you’ll have to wait until December – perhaps the price will go down a little bit by then? And it is weird how the kindle version is more expensive than the paperback, usually it’s the other way around.
