One of the best dystopian novels for young adults released in recent years, Divergent doesn’t really bother with the illusion of being a “perfect” society. At first it does appear that the world is at least at relative peace but that fades pretty quickly as the readers realise just how dangerous this new world is. A powerful, richly woven tapestry of a plot with characters of all shapes and sizes scattered throughout. A novel of awesome scope. Recommended for ages 14-17. Contains sexual references, violence, mature themes and coarse language.
