DIVERGENTFear doesn’t shut you down it wakes you up. A quote from the marvelous book Divergent written by Veronica Roth ,Veronica has won many awards but for the book Divergent she,some of them you may not recognize but,the Goodreads Choice Awards Best Young Adult Fantasy,Science Fiction Goodreads Choice Awards,Favorite Book Goodreads Choice Awards,Best Debut Goodreads Author.Veronica has written many many books so i wont get into it a lot.So let’s start talking bout veronica herself,she was born august 19 1988 in new york.
Roth graduated from Barrington High School. After attending a year of college at Carleton College, she transferred to Northwestern University for its creative writing program. She married photographer Nelson Fitch in 2011. They now live in the Chicago area.You can easily find this book at a local book store like Chapters for example.Veronica made her first appearance in 2011 with the divergent trilogy selling over 10 million copies.There is always a reasoning behind a book you have chosen and my reason is i’ve seen the movie divergent that was made march 18th 2014 which directed by Neil Burger and was produced by Douglas Wick,Lucy Fisher and Pouya Shabazian.
My opinion on the intended audience is 13+ the reason that is is because in this book(Divergent)has some parts in the book that you need to be mature about i mean if you give this book to a 10 year old and reads a part were they kiss obviously they’re gonna go crazy so. Tris Prior lives in a futuristic world in which society is divided into five factions. As each person enters adulthood, he or she must choose a faction Dauntless (The braves),Amity(The peaceful),Erudite(The intelligent),Abnegation(The Selfless)and Candor(The Honest)and commit to it for life.
Tris chooses Dauntless those who pursue bravery above all else. However, her initiation leads to the discovery that she is a Divergent and will never be able to fit into just one faction. Warned that she must conceal her status, Tris uncovers a looming war which threatens everyone she loves.The main conflict in the novel “divergent” is between the main character (tris) and society. This is a man vs. man conflict. Although Tris has many conflictswith herself and others in the book, Tris against the erudite and other societies is the main conflict.I will now read a passage from divergent:We believe in ordinary acts of bravery, in the courage that drives one person to stand up for another.
So if Becoming fearless isn’t the point,then what is?That’s impossible. It’s learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it. Fear doesn’t shut you down; it wakes you up This really speaks out to me because it is so true in Divergent all they think about is fear and trying to escape it cause they’re always scared of what happens next i would tell you but that would ruin the book.At the end i would most definitely give this book a cool 10 out 10,because it had all the elements that i love adventure,action,science fiction it is a book that i would read over and over again cause it is that good.i would recommend this book to people who like adventures science fiction action and maybe even romance,so i am finished and will be open to any question if anyone has one this is the moment to be speaking.
