    Here's the official background:
    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, 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.

    During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

    Debut author Veronica Roth bursts onto the literary scene with the first book in the Divergent series—dystopian thrillers filled with electrifying decisions, heartbreaking betrayals, stunning consequences, and unexpected romance.

    The last book I read was To Kill A Mockingbird for school. I reached a level of boredom that I didn't know was possible...

    The book is kind of anticlimactic in its exposition, but regardless, I think you were missing the point of the novel. Books like those aren't focused on plot, but characterization and realization. But I guess that's what deters most people from reading them :/

    I realized all of the "characterization and realization", I just still thought it was uninteresting....

    Where was your head when you were reading it? LaLa land? It's a great story and you need to step out of your hunger-twi-potter world for 5 minutes.

    Actually, besides THG, I couldn't care less about those books.And did you read a different book than me? Sorry, but I'd rather read stories that have good plots, good characters,and actual book sequences.. You know, like a climax? Or suspense? Things that make a book worth reading?

    I gather that we want the last book you actually finished--not the last book you were reading, but then in your mad learning dash, skipped to another one, etc. Maybe, I am ADHD on some level--either way, I'm reading out of about 10-15 books right now. That said, the last book I managed to finish was:

    S. I. Hayakawa's Language in Thought and Action: Fifth Edition. Hayakawa

    Although, I'm currently reading the latest Rick Riordan Book: The Serpent's Shadow (The Kane Chronicles) Book Three. I love Riordan's book(s), along with Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, Terry Brooks--I was/am a fan of Paolini, but I didn't enjoy the ending to his Inheritance Cycle. Same holds for J. K. Rowling. Meh... I like their books, but not their endings. I've also been reading Jude, The Obscure by Thomas Hardy. A GREAT book. ;) Definitely am enjoying it. Hardy writes wonderfully. :) Rick Riordan Thomas Hardy  Jude the Obscure

    I have to admit that since I became an avid computer user, I haven't read a complete book. This was I guess in 1986. Maybe it was, "The World According to Garp". The World According to Garp

    Fun fact: It's rumored (Not sure of the validity of this statement, but I hear it a lot) that the idea for the game Second Life came from this.
