Review: Divergent by Veronica Roth

“Why hadn't I read this before?" That was the first thought that entered my mind as soon as I finished the book. I loved the adventured filled world Veronica Roth created in Divergent. It's definitely one of my favorites this year.

I liked Tris. I didn't love her, but she sincerely made me like her and that's not something every YA “heroine" manages to do. But as much as I liked her, I would have liked to see her struggle a bit more throughout the story in terms of her initiation. On the other hand, I had a love-hate relationship with Four. Sometimes I loved him and the things he did and others he just seemed bland and unexciting. But at the end, I decided I just loved him, even with all his flaws.

The story was fast paced and adventure filled (but I've already mentioned that before). When I'm reading a book, more times that I'd care to admit, even when I end up loving the it, there's a moment when I always think “Something happen... Now... Soon... Please?". That did not happen with Divergent since there isn't an idle moment in it.

Yes, I do realize the book is not perfect. Like sometimes I felt some of the characters where too uni-dimensional and I could care less what happened with them. But the thing is, I wasn't looking for perfection. I was looking for entertainment and this book gave it to me.
