Title : Divergent
Author : Veronica Roth
One choice can
transform you--or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences,
and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must
continue trying to save those she loves--and herself--while grappling
with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty,
politics and love.
Tris's initiation day should have been marked
by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day
ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the
factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be
chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more
irrevocable--and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions
but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and
shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if
she does not know what she may lose by doing so.
"New York Times"
bestselling author Veronica Roth's much-anticipated second book of the
dystopian "Divergent" series is another intoxicating thrill ride of a
story, rich with hallmark twists, heartbreaks, romance, and powerful
insights about human nature

I am such a bummer for posting this review for a very very late month. I read this since May, the second week of May to be exact I keep on calling our local bookstore the day it was published but then it is sometimes late on our country to have a copy of it the same day of the book was published. When I read Divergent, I keep on having many thoughts about the characters on what will happen to them individually beyond their strength and weaknesses. People seems to change because of the pain they've been through and another reason for it is that they need to improve themselves and move forward.
As it ends on the first book, it gives me somehow sleepless nights to think what happen next to Tris and Four, and most importantly what was the results for the factions to react on the tragedy that the Erudite did. Then on Insurgent, it continued on the aftermath that happened to them. It was all surreal to think that these factions may seem to have different virtues that leads to a disaster. From the Amity headquarters, it clearly formed my wild imagination (Wild? 0.o) to the people full of composed and peaceful virtues. I feel that they don't wanted to risk any danger for their factions because of the tragedy the Erudite and Abnegation that occurred, but they still welcomed Tris, Four and other people who had survived.
Then the Candor Headquarters seems to be one of the most strict places that I've ever imagined. People have the sense and ability to know every motives and plans of each other whether it is good or bad since they can distinguish if a person is lying or not. (I fear I might be exiled on this place!)I've became more familiar within the other factions because of this second book.
Four and Tris became more attached to their feelings, and gives me the fan girlish effect to know what would happen further on their relationships. This book suddenly welcomes me into betrayal and acceptance of the five factions. It is also became more ravished action packed novel that shows bravery, honesty, and love. I can't help myself to keep on waiting for the final book.
