This set includes the trilogy, along with the extra book titled, "Four". I actually recommend reading Four first. It's the comets set. My 13 year old triplet boys started reading this series in school. They couldn't stop talking about it, so I bought this series for them, and I even read it myself. It's very, very good. The movie is pretty good too; although, the books are a lot more detailed. I highly recommend this series. I would caution for younger readers as the two main characters have some heated moments. Nothing that heavy, but on the line. I wouldn't want my 8 year old reading something like that. I hope this review has been helpful for the parents out there. All in all.. Definitely a great series! A Must Read!

part 2 is a book without swearing,without sexual encounters I found it to be a action story with many scenes of violence.the farthest it goes into romance is Tris(Beatrice Prior) and boyfriend 4 (Tobis Eaton) is kissing.The Factions are divided and since living in a society of factions there are some willing to do anything to keep things the same.And those who are oppressed that are ready for a change.
Part 2 starts right off from part 1 "Divergent" as Tris,4,Caleb,Peter and Marcus riding the train to Amity headquaters. They are now being hunted by Dauntless traitors and Erudite faction members.
I do not like when series go back constantly to recap all the story,and this is just bits and pieces like little clip notes.And it jumps right into where it left off with no missing pieces. you will not know who the main characters are if you do not read "Divergent "first,so recommend reading in order.
"Insurgent" gives the missing pieces to who the factionless are . Why in "Divergent" Dauntless has no old people in their faction,and where they go. You will find out how the Amity people are subdued into being the peaceful faction,and their importance. Why those that are divergent are hunted and put death if found out and what their importance is and why erudite want them gone and kept under simulation . Why the factions were started,where the people have come from.
I believe that the story "Insurgent" ended the book in a good way to lead the factions into the great unknown as to what is beyond the fence if anything.I am looking forward to part 3 to see what becomes of this little society ."in the hope that you will rediscover the moral sense most of us have lost."

Title: Divergent
Author: Veronica Roth
Rating - 4.5 out of 5 stars

Ok, sorry that this one is a bit late. I spent some of yesterday re-reading this one again so that I could give a truly accurate review. This does not contain many true spoilers but I do give a few things away so if you really don't want to know anything about it you may want to read it first...

This was an excellent Dystopian. I know that Dystopians are very popular right now and you might feel like you have Dystopian fatigue, but if you have to sort through them and pick only a few, I recommend Divergent. What is astonishing is that this was a debut novel by Veronica Roth, a college student, and while it is not perfect (what is), it is an extremely engaging read. I even think the label Young Adult is only partially true in this case because it is an excellent read for those who would enjoy an adult Dystopian as well (like Brave New World). (I kind of feel the same way about Eden's Root at times, but this one even more so.)

Synopsis
Tris (Beatrice) lives in what was once the Chicago area and she comes from one of five factions that were created following some type of significant or possibly apocalyptic war. Her faction is Abnegation, those who believe man's best quality is selflessness. The members of the Abnegation faction are the political leaders of the entire society as it is believed that the selfless make the best rulers. They live simply and without many material comforts and are resented by some of the other factions which include: Amity (the kind), Erudite (the intellectual), Candor (the honest), and the Dauntless (the brave).

In their teens, all children are asked to make a life changing decision and it is no different for Tris. They first take a series of aptitude tests which are really just mental simulations. In 99% of cases, children's reactions to the simulations are consistent with the faction in which they've been raised. So for Tris, she is expected to have responses consistent with Abnegation. Instead she has responses consistent with three factions, only one of which is Abnegation. It's determined that she could fit into Erudite and Dauntless as well, a level of mental flexibility that is unusual in their society. Tris' true designation following the test is kept hidden from everyone by the test administrator who tells her that she is what is called 'Divergent', and it is a very dangerous thing to be. Though the factions were created in the hopes of stopping any future war, there are tensions between factions that are simmering. Being a person with a mental 'grey area' makes Tris a target for those with bad intentions.

The Real Reason Tris Chose the Dauntless...
On the day of her choice, Tris is torn between her desire to please her family and stay in Abnegation with them and her desire to please herself. Whatever faction a teen chooses is final and it is a choice that supersedes their family. This means that once you join a different faction. you must leave your family behind. In the moment of choice Tris chooses to join the Dauntless. When her little brother Caleb also chooses to leave Abnegation for the Erudite, the die is cast.

The scenes in the book that come as Tris works to find acceptance among the Dauntless are quite literally exhilirating. You can feel the newfound sense of freedom that Tris gains as she hurls herself from moving trains, off building ledges and down 100 story zip lines. And you root for her over those who are stronger and meaner in her initiate class because you sense that there are two kinds of Dauntless, the brave and the simply cruel, and you are rooting for the brave. This disparity is best illustrated by the power struggle between the two main Dauntless leaders that you get to know: Eric and Four. Eric is strong and he is in charge, but his strength is derived mostly from cruelty. Four is strong and kind, but has chosen not to be the person in the highest position of power, opting to train new initiates instead. Four and Tris are drawn to each other as she maneuvers her way through the incredibly vicious and occasionally insane steps of Dauntless initiation.

Though Tris believes that her main challenge is to perform well enough to be kept amongst the Dauntless rather than being kicked out to join the helpless, hopeless ranks of those without a faction, the truth goes much deeper. When her seemingly perfect 'Abnegation' mother visits her at the Dauntless compound on visiting day to give her a message, Tris begins to learn the extent of the discontent amongst the factions. The leader of the Erudite is publishing a nonstop stream of vitriol against the Abnegation and Tris' father and other prominent leaders in particular. Her intent seems to be to incite revolution. Tris' mother warns her and urges her to go visit her brother in Erudite to give him an important message. When Tris does, she is swept up into the factions' political wrangling without a full understanding of it.

On the day of initiate acceptance into the various factions, the power grab of the Erudite begins. Tricked by unscrupulous members of their own faction, the Dauntless are transformed mindless slaves. The only reason that the plot becomes obvious to Tris is because she is Divergent and the mind control does not work on her. It is also the moment that the true evil of the plan reveals itself. In the end, it is up to Tris to save both the Dauntless and the Abnegation. If she is Dauntless enough, she will succeed. If not, she will watch everything she loves be destroyed...

Coming in May - Insurgent
This book is the first in a Trilogy, which I did not totally realize when I first read it. The main issue I have with it (and the only reason for docking a half star) is that the backstory is not well explained. Of course, it is not really necessary in order to fully enjoy the story, but there are times that you think, "Hey, what about the rest of the world? Are the only survivors in the world in the Chicago area?" You also want to know what caused the great war that resulted in the creation of the factions. It seems like the behaviors of the factions are very extreme and you wonder about the direness of the circumstances of the war that would lead to such extremes. Finally, you want to know why, while some factions have technologies like mind control and hover cars, others (the Dauntless) live in partially underground caverns or worse (the factionless) survive like the modern day homeless, eking out life in the ruins of Chicago. It seems like a disparity that is hard to quite get. Of course, real-life class disparity has always been a difficult thing to understand and perhaps that actually helps to contribute to the sense of realism in the story. Regardless, in the end, like everyone else, I loved Divergent and I am very much looking forward to INSURGENT, her next book, which is coming out in May.

If you liked the Hunger Games, you will love this book. It is also being made into a movie; they were filming in Chicago this past summer (2013).
Same sort of 'alternative' twisted and divided future society, with reflections of our current society in it, going from the Amish Farmers to the City Gangs; Nerdy Intellectuals to Government Workers to compassionate Pacifists. In our own current society, we all have many different facets to ourselves, and different 'types' of people often disagree with each other, with it sometimes getting violent. The intent of the new divided society was to have everyone getting along better if they were all living with like-minded people; No one can be something else in this future society. Teens are allowed to leave their family's faction and switch just once. Our heroine goes from being a boring pacifist to a wild train-jumping anarchist and warrior, who hides amongst the Farmers, usurps the intellectuals, and tries to overthrow the government, and (of course) lands the hottest male as her beau.
Teens will identify with that 'trying to fit in' but 'don't feel like I belong' feeling, as this book shows how trying to just identifying oneself as one type of person ('jock' 'nerd' 'naturist' 'goth') severely limits ones life; we are all nurses, professors, hunters, judges, managers, computer-wizards, musicians, investors, athletes, groupies, cops, and so on, in our own way (just ask any mom!), and one City can not be all segregated into just one type of person and function well.
