Divergent Meeting 1

Jim will host the first meeting of Divergent. In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    I am willing to host books 2 and 3 of the Divergent series, in late April at a single meeting. I will post a meetup for this, probably third Monday of April, the 21st. Reply if interested and if enough bookaholics, we will do it.

    Hey sorry I can't make it after all. Read the book and I am fascinated with the story. Wish I could discuss it with you all. Will you continue on with Insurgent?

    What Faction are you? Take this fun quiz and find out. I came out Amity which is a little of a surprise. http://www.quotev.com/quiz/1697159/What-Faction-do-you-belong-in-Divergent-by-Veronica-Roth/

    Will see you all at UNWIND, formerly Wine Styles, at 6:30 PM. Sorry for late notice, but I thought Steve and the other meeting would take place there and had to wait until they decided on their location.

    Come in your factions colors, if possible.

    Wanted to read this book prior to seeing the movie. Looks similar to Brave New World and The Giver with some dystopia added in....

    Never heard of this book. Does anyone know anything about it?

      It is the new YA book. - same genre/themes as Hunger Games with a teenage female heroine. It is the first book in a trilogy and has a movie set for release pretty soon.
