In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago world, 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.
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are--and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, Tris also learns that her secret might help her save the ones she loves . . . or it might destroy her.
What I Think
I love this series it is not the first time i have said it and i bet it wont be the last but this series has everything you want in a book. you have a love story that blossoms in front of you as well as evil people that are after the main character, action that is not stop right up until the last page.
Tris takes us on her story from the faction she grows up with her family to the faction she picks and try's to become a full member and she jumps and i mean JUMPS in to it with her mind open and ready for anything, but one thing she didnt think about is the people she would meet and get to know.
I'm leaving it there so i dont give to much away Veronica Roth is a amazing author and i will be reading everything she has written.
By now everyone would of seen the movie an knows what the books are about but as always there is something they keep out of the movies :) read and find out.
