Our Review

The Divergent series by Veronica Roth is a dystopian science fiction series that tells the story of a society divided into five factions based on personality traits, and the main character Tris Prior, who must navigate this society and discover the truth behind it. The series includes three books: Divergent, Insurgent and Allegiant.

One of the strongest elements of The Divergent series is the concept of the society divided into factions. The idea of a society where people are forced to choose a way of life based on a single trait is unique and thought-provoking. It raises questions about the nature of humanity and how we define ourselves. The series also explores themes of power, control, and free will.

Another strength of the series is the character development of Tris. Throughout the series, Tris transforms from a timid and compliant member of her faction to a strong and independent leader. Her journey is both emotional and relatable, and the reader is able to connect with her on a personal level. The supporting characters, such as Four, Christina and Uriah are also well-written and add depth to the story.

The plot of the series is also well-done, it is fast-paced and filled with action, suspense and plot twists. The series also deals with heavy themes such as love, sacrifice and betrayal, keeping the reader engaged and invested. The series has a satisfying ending that makes sense of the journey that the characters went through.

Overall, The Divergent series is a thrilling and action-packed dystopian science fiction series that is sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats. With a unique concept, well-developed characters, and a gripping plot, it is a must-read for fans of dystopian fiction and science fiction.
