Book Review: The Divergent Series

Book Review-The Divergent trilogy

Books –Divergent, Insurgent and Allegiant

Author – Veronica Roth

Summary – 

The Divergent trilogy is a series of young adult science fiction adventure novels by Veronica Roth set in a post-apocalyptic dystopian Chicago. The trilogy consists of Divergent (2011), Insurgent (2012) and Allegiant (2013).

The society of the trilogy defines its citizens by their social and personality-related affiliation with five different factions, which removes the threat of anyone exercising independent will and threatening the population's safety. Beatrice Prior, who later changed her name to Tris, an Abnegation-born and Dauntless transfer, must figure out her life as a Divergent, while concealing her true nature, and living with the danger of being killed if it is discovered by the Dauntless leaders.

My review – The divergent trilogy is definitely a page turner. The plot is engrossing and the suspense is brilliant.  However, it does come with minuscule faults. Let’s see the pros and cons in this fantastic trilogy.

Pros –The plot is very good. The main thing I liked about this story is that the characters are strong.  They are brave and courageous. The protagonist inspires the reader a lot. The twists in the story are so unpredictable. There is one big twist in Insurgent that will definitely shock you. The first two books are totally gripping. There are power packed action scenes with nail biting suspense.

Cons- The third book in the series, Allegiant, was good at the start but became boring and slow paced in the middle due to a slight overload of scientific stuff. Nevertheless, it gave all the answers which were needed. Additionally, it has a lot of character deaths.

Conclusion –This series is definitely worth a try since it is fantastic and totally entertaining. If you are sensitive to character deaths, do stock up on a lot of tissues.

Recommended age group – 13 to 18 years.

Stars- 4/5

Hey everyone! I just thought to improvise my reviews a bit. So I will be adding recommended age group according to me to read the books I review so that you all may get an idea of which book will be suitable and interesting to you. But you are on your own freedom to choose the books and so you can definitely read any of them. I really hope the additional feature would be useful to you. On an additional note, even though character deaths aren’t exactly’ faults’, yet I will put them in the cons section just to warn you since they have broken millions of hearts and have reduced many people to tears. Suggestions are welcome!
