Everytime I turned around the Dauntless were trying to hurl themselves off another building, moving object, or beat the crap out of each other for the sake of being called brave. Perhaps it's that drive that made me connect so much with Tris. When they get there they see Dauntless killing Abnegation people. This is not the case in this book. How are they not fighting Chicago over water if it's scarce? Then they get to the Dauntless compound, they find Peter and Tris shoots him in the arm because he didn't tell them where the glass room was at. And the part where she wasn't sure if she should be jealous or not. Okay, okay, I completely understand why people could really like this and also why people could find it a huge disappointment.
Tobias eventually chooses Dauntless on Choosing Day, shocking Marcus. In chapter 12 they get on the bus and they see a box of paint ball guns and they got out to have a battle, when they get their Tris goes up the carrousel where Four goes up with her and we find out that he is afraid of heights, Tris see the others team location and they go off to get the flag winning the battle. It has everything that they like: Cold leader who excels at everything, even when she doesn't try. She kicks ass literally and she is loving it. After all, Abnegation is about self-denial, meaning that no one can share the kind of information that leads to friendship.
We give one another far more than can be adequately summarized. The logic escaped me and this was a major, major failure. Could not put it down. Throughout the story, Four begins to get closer with Tris, helped by his admiration of her bravery and selflessness. She fits into more than one faction and can't be mind-controlled we learn that divergent people can't be mind-controlled at the end of the book. The aptitude test is an important test that determines what faction they belong in.
It felt desperately silly and poorly thought-through. Seriously, just the technical knowledge alone was torture to get through. But she really sounded like a robot! Though it could have been a lot better. Jumping on a moving train. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves.
Jeez this is starting to turn into Divergent: The Review, a novel by Wigs. But on one she couldn't, she points the gun to her forehead and shoots. You didn't think I was going to show a kitteh with a knife in its eye, did you? Our relationship is over and done with but the memory of you still lingers on. A man who was yelling at and abusing his partner. Though children in dystopian Chicago are raised in their parents' faction, once they turn sixteen they have the option to transfer to a different faction or remain where they are. And what makes a dystopia exactly? She grabs the gun and aims it to the man, she fires and leaves not watching the bullet hit the man.
She starts to think and she is not scared of him but being with him. This helped me see that stepping out of your comfort zone is worth it. That's ridiculous to say that something like that happens in Future America. Tris is a horrible, horrible person. At the end of initiation the rankings will determine the comparison of the born-initiates or transferred-initiates.
Oh yea because the Dauntless are stupid and have to make things ~death-defying. Not an Abnegation - oriented response. As we see later in the novel though, this system ultimately has the opposite effect. Please, check out 's You will not regret it. It was, in a word, flawless. Beatrice jogs faster throwing herself to the train, slamming to the ground. Lessons about bravery and self-sacrifice, check.
It was dumb, dumb, dumb. Later that day, Al admits that he likes Tris as more than a friend, but she cannot return the sentiment. Caleb's discomfort after leaving his aptitude test must mean something as well; clearly Beatrice isn't the only one with surprising results. She's suspicious, spiteful, and dense. As Beatrice takes the faction test, she is put through a series of trials, which reveals that she is not drawn to one faction, but three.
But romance isn't the focus. Tris, the occasionally too-dumb-to-live protagonist¹, does not ever seem to stop moving. Clearly protection is important to them. Not only that, but do you know how many cities there are on the edges of Lake Michigan? One obvious drawback of this lifestyle which the reader will probably notice right away is that it limits human emotion and romance—Caleb and Susan are unable to express their true feelings and explore all the possibilities of life. Most of Beatrice's fellow Dauntless initiates are from Candor.
