    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    Grant says: "It's not for me. Loved it anyway."
    "Couldnt do it. what a rip."

    Would you try another book from Veronica Roth and/or Emma Galvin?

    I wouldn't read another one of them or even finish this one. Hope the movie is better


    Would you ever listen to anything by Veronica Roth again?

    Maybe with a different performer


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She sounded like a snotty know it all 14 year old. I couldn't liste


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. It's so much like Hunger Games, but far less creative. I trusted the hunddreds of great reviews, but even the premise was immature and not thought through.
