by Veronica Roth

Finally a book that I ended up enjoying even though I watched the movie first. To be fair though I watched it a long time ago and I can’t really remember it.
I don’t know why it took me so long to read this book but I’m so glad I finally did even if it took me 4 years to do so.
This book was a little slow going at first for me but things eventually started to pick up. I think Roth did an amazing job with world building, her characters, and the plot. I would say this is more of a plot driven book. While the characters are done well I didn’t have a connection with any of them. Yeah some of them I hated and some of them I loved but there was no connection for me. I never found myself sympathizing with them even though I probably should have.
While romance isn’t the focus of this book you know I have to talk about it anyway. I absolutely loved Tris and Four. I think they are so cute together. These two are my favorite characters from the whole book. Tris a strong female lead and Four a strong male lead both willing to make sacrifices for what’s right.
Overall I really enjoyed this book and found it to be addicting but there was something missing that kept me from giving it a 5 star rating I just can’t put my finger on what that is exactly.
