This book is the first book in Veronica Roth’s trilogy about Tris and the world she lives in. 16 year old Tris has to make her choice. It happens to every 16 year old. They have to decide which faction they should go to. There are five factions and they are Abnegation, Candor, Erudite, Amity and Dauntless. She currently is in Abnegation, she can’t look in mirrors or be noticeable, but her choice will decide how to look and how to act after that. She has to choose where she should spend the rest of her life. Once she has made her choice she can’t turn back otherwise she will be factionless (homeless).
I really like Tris because she has a brilliant working mind and can be very strong willed when she wants to be.
The story will keep you trying to guess what will happen next, but you might not be that right. It will make you laugh and cry at different points, but it will make you SO want to read the next book. Before you know it you will have finished the book and will desperately want the second.
I first came across the book via my wonderful Mum when she was looking for books for herself and me. And found this book on Amazon she told me about it, but said it wasn’t out in paperback. But a few months later we were in Waterstone’s in London and bumped in to it. So that’s how I found it.
Gripping, heart pounding can’t put down book. Amazing writer, full of emotion and romance. Brilliant for teens and young adults. There is a bit of violence, but is not too gory. Good for 12 years and up.
Let me know if you think you might read it.
The second book has not yet been published but is coming out on the 1st May 2012.
