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, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

My Ratting: 5 stars

My Thoughts:

This book is by far one of my favorite books of all time! It was such an incredible read. Right after I finished it, I turned back to page one and read it again. And let me just make it clear that I really, really, really, want to be a member of dauntless! They are so BA!

Anyway, my favorite thing about this book is the characters, especially Tris and, of course, Four/Tobias. She is such a strong, dauntless, and selfless person and those traits are  shown through out the whole book. Then there is Tobias…I love him! He is such a perfect character in every way possible. He always pushes Tris inorder to prove her strength and to help her succeed, but he is also always there to protect her when need be. The thing I love best about Tris and Tobias: NO LOVE TRIANGLE! I get so sick when every single book has a love triangle, so this was definitely a breath of fresh air.

The plot of this book is just as amazingly developed as the characters. There is not a moment in this story where I thought to myself “Ugh when is this part gonna be over!” The whole story was action packed and kept me flipping the pages as fast as I could.

A lot of people have compared this book to The Hunger Games, but let me tell ou, this book is a million times better. I mean like no comparison at all. This book was written much better and the characters development was done so well that you feel like you’ve known them your whole life and honestly I wish that was the case!

So please, if you haven’t read this book yet, do so. Now.
