Korte samenvatting
Set in the future, Divergent is a series about a 16 year old girl who has to decide where she fits in society.

Scientific experiments have caused humanity to evolve into people with one dominant personality trait, either intelligence, kindness, courage, honesty or selflessness. The population is divided into factions, according to those traits; Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Dauntless and Erudite. When children are 16, they choose which faction they believe they belong in.

Before choosing, they are given an aptitude test to determine their dominant personality trait. It’s during this aptitude test that Beatrice finds out she is Divergent; she has traits of all factions. Seeing as this anomaly is considered dangerous, she is told to hid it.

Unfortunately, word gets out and events unfold, causing the collapse of their society. Between war, betrayal, and death, there’s also love, friendship, and victory.

The story is divided into 3 parts, each book tells one part, but they’re all connected. This set contains 3 first edition paperbacks.

Over de auteur
Veronica Roth werd in 1988 geboren in New York. Ze groeide echter op in de buurt van Chicago en ze studeerde creatief schrijven aan Northwestern University. In de kerstvakantie van haar laatste jaar schreef ze Divergent. Ze had de publicatierechten al verkocht voordat ze was afgestudeerd. Na het succes van The Hunger Games waren dystopische young adult boeken zeer populair en Divergent had daar profijt van. Het werd een bestseller. Het boek was dus meteen een groot succes en er werden meer dan vijf miljoen exemplaren verkocht. Hierna bleef zij voornamelijk boeken schrijven in de wereld die zij had gecreëerd in Divergent.

Naast de Divergent trilogie heeft Roth meer young adult boeken geschreven, waaronder Four, een versie van Divergent vanuit het perspectief van Four, de liefdesinteresse van Tris. Ze heeft ook haar eerste boek buiten de young adult categorie gepubliceerd: Chosen Ones.

The Guardian: “The book was very intriguing from the very start to the end. The plot line was unique and kept me reading. Many people say it is just like The Hunger Games, but I have read and enjoyed both books and I can tell you they are very different.”

Fantasy book review: “Well-written, with solid prose and an emotional and thematic depth.”

Publisher’s Weekly: “Promising author Roth tells the riveting and complex story of a teenage girl forced to choose between her routinized, selfless family and the adventurous, unrestrained future she longs for. A memorable, unpredictable journey from which it is nearly impossible to turn away.”

Bookpage: “You’ll be up all night with Divergent, a brainy thrill-ride of a novel.”

New York Times: “With brisk pacing and lavish flights of imagination, Divergent clearly has thrills, but it also movingly explores a more common adolescent anxiety—the painful realization that coming into one’s own sometimes means leaving family behind, both ideologically and physically.”

Wall Street Journal: “Divergent is really an extended metaphor about the trials of modern adolescence: constantly having to take tests that sort and rank you among your peers, facing separation from your family, agonizing about where you fit in, and deciding when (or whether) to reveal the ways you may diverge from the group.”
