People who would like Divergent

There is a broad range of people who would be interested in this book. As i see it ranges from 14-21 years of age, and both girls, and boys would love this book. It has action in with young teens like and romance in which girls sometimes like. This book is a perfect mixture of masculine and feminine plot.

Short Passage

"Our dependents are now sixteen. They stand on the precipice of adulthood, now it will be up to them to decide what kind of people they will be." Marcus's voice is solemn."...i hear my named called and a shudder propels me forward. Halfway to the bowls , i am am sure ill choose Abnegation. I can see it now."

I choose this passage because it shows the lead up to the story. Without this part you miss alot about her character, how she cares for her family and has many sides to her. Not only that, it shows her mind is not yet made up about the faction she wants. This decision will impact her character, and the whole book. It could be the decision between her life, or her death.

Good or Bad

I loved this book because it was full of surprises, it always kept me alert. Never did i want to put the book down when i was reading it. The whole plot was terrific, from the opening scenes from the Choosing, all the way to end. I really suggest everyone to read this book who is into action, adventure, romance, and futuristic ideas.
