Personal Thoughts

Synopsis

Five personalities you could be. Five factions you choose between. One Choice that will make or break the rest of your life. 

Beatrice Prior lives in a selfless committee. It is all she knows, even though she doesn’t truly fit in. She dreams of living another way. a bravery courages way.  The test will tell her if she should stay or she should go. After taking the test that would determine what her personality would best fit in: Selflessness, Honesty, Kindness, Bravery, or Intelligence. The test doesn’t give her one answer it gives her three. What does she do now. 

People like her that do not fit into one catagorey are being hunted down and killed. Where does she hide and who can she trust. 

This Dystopian Novel is an action pack and adventures journey of one girl in search of who she truely is and where she belongs. 

I cannot tell you how many times I have read this book. I Love it! It is my FAVORITE Dystopian trilogy and that is saying a lot. I have read others, but this one is amazing. Now my opinion of the other two in the trilogy are not as equal to the first one, but they are still decent. 

One thing that I really like is Tris’s strength and determination to over come her personal obstacles. She didn’t let people push her around. Even during the fight scenes she gave it all she had. Even though she got the crap kicked out of her multiple times. 

I love Four; and, yes that is his name. His real name is Tobias Eaton, but you find that out later in the novel. He is such a power house of a character. He has struggles and turmoil inside of himself, that he doesn’t let other people see. Which I respect.

I love what he says “I don’t want to be just one thing. I want to be brave, and selfless, and intelligent, and honest and kind.” 

Why can’t we all aim to be like that. Try to obtain all these positive attributes. Being completely focused on one quality has it negative effects. 

Divergent the Movie

The Movie Divergent actually wasn’t bad. They casted really well, expect for the girl who plays Christina. She is WAY to short for the role. Christinia is suppose to be taller then Tris, but Shaleyn Woodly is a tall girl, so she almost towers over others. I wish they could have fixed that in the film more. 

Also my other beef with the film is that Tris says “I love you” to Four at the end, which is NOT SUPPOSE TO HAPPEN! That is something she is suppose to struggle with and not say till the next book. Whatever.
