The POV is 1st Person

The point of view of Divergent is 1st person. We know this because it tells what she thinks and feels. On page 58, Tris jumps off a ledge. "I gets goose bumps and that my heart is pounding so fast and every muscle is tense." "The hole surround me as I drop into a darkness."

Summary

The book Divergent is about a girl who is divergent which means she doesn't fit into one faction and has to hide otherwise she would get killed. There is five factions: Abnegation the one she is from, dauntless, erudite, candor, and amity. Since Tris has reached the age of 16 she has to choose a faction where she will spend the rest of her life. She chooses dauntless the strong and brave. She has to pass a series of tests to become one of them. Tris meets her best friend Christina and her trainer/love interest Tobias. She learns that Erudite is threatening to harm abnegation using dauntless as an army. Together Tris and Tobias have to work together to help save abnegation.

Critique of Divergent

From a star from one to five I would give it a five. I would recommend this book to teens. I would recommend it more to girls than boys since it is in a girl perspective but, boys still can read it if they want too. It is a great book because it is filled with action, bravery, friendship and some romance. Overall the book Divergent was one of the best books we read.
