Transcript of Detail 2

Setting
Although it was never said in the book the setting is believed to be in Chicago 50-100 years in future. When Tris plays paintball capture the flag she talks about a ferris wheel at the edge of a city. In Chicago there is a big ferris wheel on Navy Peir. Also, when Tris and her brother meet up they meet in Millennium next to a giant bean. Currently in Chicago Millennium park has a famous statue called the Cloud Gate which looks identical to
a bean
Themes displayed through conflict
Identity:
One of the main conflicts of Tris's life is that she is not sure what she is, a Divergent or a Dauntless or even an Abnegation.
Due to her unsure idea of who she is he picked Dauntless which later cause big conflicts in the novel
"I didn't jump off the roof because I wanted to be like the Dauntless. I jumped off because I already was like them, and I wanted to show myself to them. I wanted to acknowledge a part of myself that Abnegation demanded that I hide." (263, Roth, Divergent) This quote shows that she jumped off the roof at initiation not to please others put to create conflict in her own mind.
Compitition:
during the Dauntless initiation Tris needs to compete and challenge many of her opponents.
Having issues with competitors caused conflict in the story.
"I haven't played before, but I know it's a game of speed rather than brute force. I cover a smile with my hand. Eric is more ruthless than Four, but Four is smarter." (135, Roth, Divergent)
In this quote there is a conflict in the game of capture the flag but four picks smaller and faster people to have the competitive edge
Genre

The genre of this book consist of Young Adult Literature and adventure. Tris is in her young adult stage and is dealing with problems that even most teenagers now have.

Themes
In the novel Divergent there are many different themes that take place and are interpreted but he reader. These themes consist of identity, competition and lastly segregation.

One of the main themes in the book is Identity. Tris initially has no idea who she is and what faction she is desired to be. When she gets inconclusive aptitude test result it makes her even more unsure. during the full book Tris is unaware of who she really is but eventually finds her true self and what she wants with Dauntless.

The next theme that occurs in the book is competition. Competition takes place during the Dauntless initiation greatly while everyone competes to get a good rank. The author makes it clear that the ranks in Dauntless are very important and that competition is very important.

The final theme I chose was segregation. the full book completely consists of segregation with the fact that everyone must be split up in 5 factions. The author does a good job of morphing segregation into the book through the use of the factions and how limited people
are to one another.

Themes displayed
through charachter development
Identity:
Tris initially has no idea who or what she is. She starts of as a girl from Abnegation who does nothing for herself and nothing for fun.
Tris joins Dauntless out of confusion from her aptitude test. she develops into a character she never thought she would be and gains an identity she is happy with.
"I look at my reflection in the small mirror on the back wall and see a stranger. She is blond like me, with a narrow face like mine, but that's where the similarities stop. I do not have a black eye, and a split lip, and a bruised jaw. I am not as pale as a sheet. She can't possibly be me, though she moves when I move." ( 119, Roth, Divergent)
This quote shows how much Tris changed while she was in Dauntless and how her identity had been changed from who she used to be.

Competition:
As a member or Abnegation Tris did not compete with anyone for anything. She was taught how to think for others and not herself. When she joined Dauntless Tris needed to be competitive to survive. Tris needed to beat people to get a good ranking in initiation
What do we get if we win?" someone shouts. 'Sounds like the kind of question someone not from Dauntless would ask,' says Four, raising an eyebrow. 'You get to win, of course.'" (133, Roth, Divergent)

Other books in the series
Veronica Roth also wrote two other books to the trilogy. Divergent, Insurgent and lastly Allegiant. I have not read the sequels to Divergent but i plan to in the future due to there high ratings and my enjoyment
for the first one
Favorite Quote
"We are creatures of loss, we have left everything behind. I have no home, no path, and no certainty. I am no longer Tris, the selfless, or Tris, the brave. I suppose that now, I must become more than either.” (487, Roth, Divergent)
About Veronic Roth
Veronica is most recognized by her popular Divergent trilogy. Roth was awarded with Goodreads 2011 Choice Award and the Best of 2012. She was born in New York but grew up in Illinois with her brother, sister and both parents. After her first
novel Divergent her careers
rapidly while she wrote the
two sequels. She now lives
in Chicago and is happily
married.
Synopsis
The main characters name is Beatrice (AKA Tris)
Tris is 16 and lives in what seems to be area of Chicago in the future
There are five very different factions that cover distinct different morals
Abnegation (The Selfless), Erudite (The Intelligent), Dauntless (The Brave), Amity (The Peaceful), and Candor (The Honest)
Tris grew up as a member of Abnegation
When one turns 16 they take an aptitude test to decide the faction they will be desired
Tris does the test but gets a very rare result called Divergent
Divergent means that the aptitude test was inconclusive and apparently very dangerous to be
Tris decides to be in Dauntless (The Brave) and leave her home and family because she doesn't feel she is an Abnegation while her brother left too, to be in Erudite
Tris joins Dauntless and successfully goes through the initiation
while going through the initiation she realizes more and more about what Divergent is and knows she needs to hide it
Tris finds out that the Erudite faction is trying to take over the Abnegation government by brainwashing the Dauntless.
Since Tris is a Divergent she isn't effected by the brainwashing and she knows she must do something to prevent a war.
Tris's dauntless peers are all brainwashed and trying to take over the government while she realizes she must destroy the main computer at the Dauntless Hq
Tris does it and saves the day!

Connection
Segregation:
Tris is very segregated in her Abnegation life. She would do for others and thats all. When she joined Dauntless she still was under the pressure of segregation still but during the end of the novel she got the freedom she could have.
I am no longer Tris, the selfless, or Tris, the brave. I suppose that now, I must become more than either.” (487, Roth, Divergent) This quote explains how she had the choice of what to do with more rights.
Critique
Alternative ending
I really enjoyed the ending on Divergent and i dont think I would change it if i could. Although the ending was very good and left on a great cliffhanger I think there could have been a cooler ending but it would have led to no sequel. I think it would have been cool if at the end of the book Tris wakes and finds out the full experience with Dauntless and saving the the
world from war was all just part of the aptitude test
and was a big hallucination. This ending would
been more interesting but wouldn't leave
room for a sequel.
The end!
Thank you for tuning in

I really enjoyed reading Divergent am excited to read the sequels. I found the book very exciting and found myself wishing I could be part of the Dauntless.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoyed The Hunger Games series. This novel is quite like The Hunger Games and has similar action like features. Since the book has lots of action it made it more enjoyable to get through. I would rate this book a
8/10 because of its well paced drama
and action, and I hardly read so
that's good.
