This young adult book is a weird amalgamation of The Matrix movies, Ender’s Game, The Giver and the movie Equilibrium. Beatrice Prior, or Tris as she later renames herself, lives in a society divided by factions based solely on emotional personalities. This book has been deemed the next Hunger Games, yet it is a step above that. The writing, while nothing spectacular, is a step above Collins, Meyer and other young adult writers. Still, Roth leaves a lot to be desired. I didn’t necessarily hate this book, but I feel like many of the story beats were extremely predictable (the budding romance between Tris and Tobias, Tris constantly being threatened with death, etc.) Still, being that there are two more books in the series, and a movie is on the way, I will finish the trilogy, albeit with low expectations.
