#RothReread Week 1: Factions


divergent reread2

(I’m feeling that wave of laziness that strikes me about once a month when it comes to blogging. So I’m a bit late in getting this post up, and probably others as well.)

I was a bit late in starting my reread of Divergent, but I’m pleased to say that I have finished it. I won’t be able to start Insurgent until my mother finishes my copy,  but maybe I’ll get it back this weekend. I will I realized a few things in my reread of it.

  • Details are super vague and confusing. I kind of noticed it on my first read but I was too propelled by the drama to care. It is still good for the drama, but I do wish that it was a bit more detailed in terms of setting and character movements.
  • The serum technology is also really confusing. I think there a lot of things you have to take in stride when reading this series versus some other books.
  • Tris is really kind of bitch. She treated Al way meaner that I would have. I think that Four/Tobias is in a few ways more of a dynamic character than Tris is.

Those little thoughts aside, today’s conversation is on which faction I would be a part of, both born into and then chosen.

I have a harder time thinking of which faction I would have been born into. I don’t think I can figure that one out. When I first read the book, I thought I’d want to be in Candor, but two different quizzes have placed me closer to Abnegation. Which is really strange, because I’m really an extraordinarily selfish person. I would want to pick Dauntless, but Dauntless how it was back when and not how it is with Eric in charge. I would suffer from the lack of natural light in their headquarters.

Which faction would you have been born into? Which faction would you have joined?

Join the conversation!

What do you think?

    i like that you pointed out the lack of natural light. i would be surprisingly fine with this. :)

      haha I think a lot of people would be fine with it. I just always crave real light vs. darkness. I think I’d always be on top of their roof. 😛

    I think I would’ve been born into Abnegation and choose Amity.

    • Playing Jokers says:

      nice! I do think those two factions are pretty closely related. I like parts of Amity, but I really am way too prone to mean humor for them.
