Divergent Book Discussion (17)Wednesday, April 10, 2013
I think feeling a sense of belonging is important for anyone. Especially as a Dauntless I think this belonging and acceptance is even more important because even though these people claim to be “fearless,” I know each of them has come sort of fear. So making friends and being accepted makes facing these fears so much easier than going into Dauntless as a loner who has no one to defend them. I also like how Tris mentioned that she liked the non-uniformity that Dauntless has (since in Abnegation she was only used to uniformity) and that she feels a “oneness”among her fellow companions. I think this experience will definitely help Tris to get though the initiation process and become a Dauntless!
