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.

Out of curiosity, I read the book Divergent by Veronica Roth. Reading the quote "One Choice decides your friends, One Choice defines your beliefs, One Choice determines your loyalties - Forever" make me excited to read until I researched on it to read the plot making me more excited.
Reading reviews from readers from other websites, it is somehow being compared to "The Hunger Games Trilogy," which is indeed a great book to read. As I read the story, it is somehow could compared to "The Hunger Games Trilogy." However, comparing the two books simply means that "The Hunger Games Trilogy" is better than "Divergent." In addition, "Divergent" is somewhat similar to "Mockingjay" of "The Hunger Games" as a sign of rebels/rebellion.
Going back to "Divergent”, the story was definitely done in a good way; Just by reading the first few chapters, you will really be get hook to it. Having it as an adventure, mystery, and teen romance make it more exciting to read.
Just a note on its ending, there is no definite ending of the story of "Divergent" making it indeed another book series. The book somehow fails the part. There is a lack of thrill on the ending however, it gives a feeling of excitement to read the next book.
