Just Life| Are You A Divergent?

Awhile back, at the movie theater, the movie trailer for Divergent caught my eye. "I bet that is based on a book", I mumbled to my husband sitting next to me. Later that day, I checked our library catalog and found out that the movie Divergent is based on a young adult book series by Veronica Roth.

Here is its storyline:

Imagine living in a rigid society that boxes you in one of its 5 factions. At 16, you are forced to to choose your faction. Sometimes that means leaving your family and friends behind to join a new faction. The book follows Beatrice Prior as she prepares to choose her faction.

The book is a bit of an adventure with a sprinkle of romance. It is also the universal story about struggling to fit in and having the overwhelming feeling of being out of place.  

Here are the factions of this society.
  • Candor or the honest ones
  • Abnegation or the selfless ones
  • Dauntless or the brave ones
  • Amity or the peaceful ones
  • Erudite or the intelligent ones

Which faction do you think you belong to? Or are you a Divergent like Beatrice?

I bought copies of the first two books and at the end of the first book, there is a questionnaire that you can take to find out which faction you belong to.

Apparently, I am a candor. You better find out which faction you belongs to before watching it on March 21, 2014. 

Here are the books in this series (Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant)

Signing off until next Monday- Panteha

  1. Thanks for the great review, Panteha! I'm always a sucker for finding out what type I am of something...I wonder what type I am here? Maybe an Amity? Or, dare I hope, an Erudite? Hmmm....Drat, our copies are checked out! Maybe I can get the e-book? Or, aha! The teen Nook? Nope, all unavailable. Well, I can surely see that our teens like this series. I guess I will wait. Patiently.
