Personal Opinion
This book was amazing! It is the first time I read 487 pages in 4 days, I was expecting this book to be slow but it wasn’t at all, ever since the beginning awesome things started happening.
I love Tris, she is such a strong character, and even when in the book she isn’t supposed to be pretty I imagine her completely different.  This book took so many turns I didn't expect that I found myself not being able to let it go. The only thing I don't like about the book is the fact that in the cover it said an unexpected love, and Tris and Four? I saw that coming ever since she jumped out the building into the net (first 100 pages) so it wasn't unexpected at all for me, but besides that I LOVED IT!! I do recommend you go buy this book right now!
If you had to choose a faction, which would you be?


  1. I am really looking forward to this one! Nice review!

  2. I totally love this book. There's just nothing not to love about this. It's one of the greatest dystopian novel. :)
