#Review of Divergent
Expectations:I really loved Divergent, the first book in this trilogy. It was such a rush to read and I think this is a fascinating story. The ending of the first book was so intense for the main character Tris that I wonder how this story will continue.
I know most of you have already read the entire trilogy, but please don't spoil anything! I know I'm late reading this series, but I'm glad I get to read it now :)
Obviously this is the second installment in the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth.
This book took me some time to read. The last couple of weeks were so busy for me, that each time I started to read I just fell asleep... not because of the book though. I was just very tired after work.
This book was amazing. The writing is just so gorgeous that I read some parts out loud, just because it sounded so great. I really think that Veronica Roth has amazing writing skills and while reading this book I had a lot of moments were I just paused to admire the beauty of her writing.
Just like Divergent, I found this to be very fast-paced and action-packed read.
I loved that we got to see more of the other factions and receive information about the habits and rules within their faction. This makes me feel like I have a better prospective on the different factions and really get to know them better.
We get to see Tris and Four interact and try to trust each other more although the circumstances didn't make it very easy for them. May I just say I love Four :D
Tris is traumatized by things she has experienced previously and I think the way she deals with that it realistically written. Throughout the book she keeps having flashbacks and moments were she blanks out or is overwhelmed by emotions.
