The Review: “I might be in love with you." He smiles a little. "I'm waiting until I'm sure to tell you, though.” -Four
I actually can't believe it took me so long to read this book. What was I thinking?! Man! I LOVE Dystopian, and I loved everything about this book. Although it didn't grab it straight away like The Hunger Games, it was still absolutely amazing and I couldn't get enough of it. I found myself whizzing through it, I don't think I came up for breath! It's a shame I had to work, cut into 8 hours of good reading time.
Anyway, I loved the whole story. Dystopian is really hard genre to write about. And Roth manages to pull it off and she's the same age as me! It's a fantastic read that kept me on edge for a very long time. Tris was incredibly likable from the start, and I loved her character development. She went from and unsure Abnegation girl, to a strong-I-don't-take-no-crap-from-no-body-Dauntless girl! She was super kick ass and I loved her. Four was just...sigh. He has a piece of my heart now. I hope he's careful with it.
There's a lot of world build up in this, and I always feel Dystopians work better that way. As a reader I want to know about the chaos that surrounds this Dystopian future. I want to soak in every little detail. And that I did! It was simply wonderful.
There isn't a lot more I can say, except that it's definitely a book you should go into not knowing much about, that's what makes everything a little more epic.
Overall, a fabulous read and I look forward to reading Insurgent. When I get my stinking hands on it!
