i had seen the movie first so decided I wanted to read it. I was not disappointed!Even though I knew the general srory and how it ended, I loved the journey.
I really liked this book and it’s too bad that the rest of the series followed the ‘Hunger Game’ series were the first two books rocked and the third book suck!
In this book there is great character development and the storyline is a strong one. I can see how the the author took the different ‘sects’ or ‘Factions’ from our current religious or political leaders or even from our everyday life. I liked the way the author weaved all these factions together just as if she was speaking of our religious leaders, political leaders or our own interactions with people. I see people all the time selfishly helping others. I see people value knowledge over the individual person. I can also see those that believe truth must be told at all costs. This is a masterpiece of art.
In this story you will follow Tris as she comes to grip with her becoming a woman along with the reality of the ‘factions’. As we follow her we see how other are coping with the same issues. We also see how everyone wants to be free and live life to it’s fullest while wanting to be above others simply because that is what they're taught. In the end of the story we see what happens when….
Great story with great feeling. I know this is a trilogy but I would be fairly happy if it ended with the first book. I'm glad there's three more though :)
Even though I found the story interesting and well narrated, it's has a teenage book feel to it.
I've read other books that you could compare to this (the hunger games, the park service), but found them to still be a good read for adults too. This book is just crossing that line for me even though the story is interesting.
Loved it. Great story line. Looking forward to the next books in the series. I loved the characters---Beatrice and Tobias.
