One choice can transform you — or it can
destroy you. Tris Prior’s initiation day should have been marked by
celebration, victory, and the thrills of being ranked first among the
initiate class of her chosen faction, Dauntless. Instead, the day ends
with the unspeakable horrors of Erudite simulation attacks, and while
Tris survives thanks to her Divergent nature, many she loves do not.
War now seems inevitable. Though the Dauntless have been freed from Erudite mind control, conflict between the factions and their ideologies is only beginning. And in war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable — and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief, radical new discoveries, and a fast-deepening romance, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

Would it kill the writers to actually make a female lead without all the moping and martyr attitude, even when the lead is a teenager? I mean with just a little bit more brain powers for Tris and the book would have been better just by leaving half of the annoyance away.

I finished this book in 11 hours... 11 hours!! Which means there were no major obstacles, or anything to give me pause. A good sign? I'll be fucked if I know. Boy, there's a lot of crying in this book. And a lot of kissing. Tris is either crying or thinking about crying, or kissing Four or thinking about kissing Four. And in between she thinks about her parents and Will, and gets all illogical and suicidal. And then she lies a whole bunch and does stupid things. Basically Tris is Harry ... (more)
