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 w Heh I'm torn now I eyerolled so much while reading this book that I may have permanently damaged at least some of my cranial nerves And yet I read it in one sitting annoyingly and inexplicably entertained Go figure There just may have been some facepalming as wellIt's yet another young adult dystopia based on a stupid premise Seriously it's plainly ridiculous If I had to compare it to something eually ridiculous it'd have to be the notion of sparkly vampires I'm not kidding Just listen to this Decades ago our ancestors realized that it is not political ideology religious belief race or nationalism that is to blame for a warring world Rather they determined that it was the fault of human personality of humankind's inclination toward evil in whatever form that is They divided into factions that sought to eradicate those ualities they believed responsible for the world's disarray How ridiculous is it Well it's a dystopian Chicago where in an attempt to battle the evils of this world people came up with a BRILLIANT idea to segregate into five factions each of one is based on ONE uality that is supposed to be the uber defining feature of them Therefore we have the brave the selfless the smart the truthful and the kind¹ Except some people can be than one of those the Divergent¹ You know what this idea is missing A Sorting Hat yelling out GRYFFINDOR as the character decides to make a choice and join the reckless brave I eyerolled at it in a children's book where it made its appearance I exasperatedly eyeroll at it nowNo really That is stupid First of all how exactly will our society ever get to the point where such thing becomes plausible I mean seriously at least we can imagine the world of The Hunger Games happening given current obsession with reality shows And second of all how exactly is everyone in this world NOT 'Divergent' They have an option to switch factions after being raised in one; so basically it's okay to internalize the principles of than one of them How will that not make them 'Divergent' So there's that and the sheer impossibility of a person to live only within the rigid frames of one of the factions' principlesFor instance let's look at doctors 'kay In this book they belong to the faction of the kind Because clearly for this profession you don't need the smarts to learn medicine the selflessness to sacrifice sleep and rest in favor of helping the sick the bravery to cut into someone's bodily cavity and the truthfulness to deliver bad news or admit when you don't know something Clearly it would take a special brain to use than one of these ualities not only simultaneously but EVERNo wonder this world does not work well Duh I mean how well does complete segregation work to create peace instead of creating new lines of division of Us vs Them Clearly complete segregation would do wonders to solve the violence causing issues in the world History showed us many examples of that And I cannot believe that up until this point in that universe nobody uestioned the validity of this structure I think we’ve made a mistake he says softly We’ve all started to put down the virtues of the other factions in the process of bolstering our own I don’t want to do that I want to be brave and selfless and smart and kind and honest Well duh Did it take centuries to come to this conclusion But here's the thing once you put in the gargantuan effort to overlook this stupidity and suspend your disbelief to the point that it helplessly dangles over an abyss this book is actually fun despite all the faults despite the shallow characters despite the many elements so traditional to teen dystopias that you can't help but wonder whether they have been mass manufacturedIt's probably the sheer amount of action in this book nonstop action that makes action heavy plot itself giddy from action overload Did I mention action Tris the occasionally too dumb to live protagonist¹ does not ever seem to stop moving Running jumping falling fist fighting knife fighting shooting running punching all that while she a special Divergent snowflake learns to fit in among the Dauntless the Gryffindor brave read stupidly reckless faction of this universe¹ view spoilerTris on purpose nonfatally shoots two bad guys one of whom tried to actually rape her and kill her but kills one of her friends who was mind controlled via the actions of one of the aforementioned villains on purpose when a disabling shot would have worked just as well And she shoots her friend AFTER she thinks she won points with God by not killing the villain hide spoiler

DivergentHo she really is she can't have both So she makes a choice that surprises everyone including herselfDuring 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 conseuences As initiation transforms them all Tris must dete Dear Hunger GamesI miss you I really do Our relationship is over and done with but the memory of you still lingers on I know that's a terrible cliché and you hate clichés but it's a true one at least in this case I don't think I'll ever be over you You are fucking specialIt took me some time but I finally met a new girl Her name is Divergent She's uiet and strong and short tempered and insular and brave a lot like you I suppose But is she really This is hard for me to admit but I think I was initially attracted to her because she reminded me so much of you I know it's not fair for me to think this way I should be looking at her on her own merits At the very least I could have looked at the relationship as a fun rebound and not as a search for a replacement you Easier said than done I loved you I love you I'll always love you and I'm not sure I even like herFirst of all she copies all of your moves and all of your traits It's so obvious It's clear she's modeled her whole life on you and what you've achieved At first that similarity is what caught my eye about her And she is an exciting person she's always hurtling forward she barely stops to take a breath I like that But in the end there's also a fakeness and even a kind of desperation She's not you not even close Why can't she be her own personUnlike you she's really into guns I know you see the necessity of guns sometimes but I also know you don't see them as an answer I didn't mind her love of guns at first I kinda like guns I'll admit that But eventually I realized she was euating the use of guns with bravery What the hell On the one hand she says true bravery is selflessness but on the other hand she insists that she doesn't feel fully herself unless she has a gun in her hand UghShe also has a thing against intellectuals She finds them innately suspicious and they are the first kind of person she'll automatically reject Honestly I don't know where that comes from But it makes my skin crawlWith all the gun love and the anti brains bias she reminds me at times of my redneck relatives Which is not attractiveThe worst thing and I know I'm about to sound like a real dick here is that I've realized she is actually pretty stupid She breaks people down into different groups just like you do But while you have a realistic complicated perspective on class and power and economics and the media and self awareness and how all of those things contribute to the boxes we put ourselves into the decisions we make who we are she just divides people up into a handful of finite personality traits Abnegation Candor Erudite Dauntless and Amity it's such a ridiculous shallow idea My God she even lumps adjectives and nouns together as her labels as if they were the same thing It's teeth grindingly naive and yet this idea of hers is her whole foundation Even worse she seems to think that only the very rare person the very special few are able to combine these traits in relatively eual proportions To be Divergent Sometimes I wonder if she's actually ever really known a person Her theory is like something a child thought upOkay now I'm feeling bad for bashing her so much so I'll say some good things She can be pretty enthusiastic and at her best she can keep me up all night just having fun Her insights about this guy Al you don't know him and you probably wouldn't like him are really surprising and deep So she's not that shallow not really She has her moments And just like you she sure knows how to make some moneyStill I don't think I will be continuing the relationship There's a new girl I've met named Daughter of Smoke Bone She seems really cool and smart and mysterious I'm looking forward to getting to know herBut in the end you know you'll always be number oneMuch love UPDATE 101714 just saw the movie it was awesome
