Divergent Book Discussion (27)

Friday, May 03, 2013

Hey, people from Earth and other people who are not from here, for the next 6 weeks we will be giving you the awesomeness that is DIVERGENT by Veronica Roth.  Be sure to show up, because we are giving away some goodies, check it out HERE. Just a side note, I will be asking a question after each discussion post.  Be sure to follow the discussion and don’t be scared to join in on our discussion/ questions. Those who entered the contest will receive extra entries for answering a question.  Every week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, we will discuss three chapters per week: tell you about the plot, and other random bits of spicy goodness that you should definitely know about (all relating to Divergent).    Just for your curiosity: helping me out with this discussion is Jackie, one of my best friends (please say hello to her).  Basically these posts will be categorized by person.  Jackie hasn't read the book so be sure to read her first impressions while she reads along and if you have read Divergent, be sure to read my input (this will be the my second read through).  If you missed a post and want to check out the schedule, go HERE.  Come and join us in our quest of discussing DIVERGENT.

Today's Topic:

    Yea, I couldn’t really tell for sure if Tris was acting scared of if she was genuinely scared. I mean, she did seem scared, but at the same time, Four has told her numerous times to try and act more vulnerable, so did she just take this opportunity to fake how vulnerable she wanted everyone to believe her to be? I really can’t tell. If she was acting though she did a convincing job because four called her Stiff, which I thought was really low of him. If she wasn’t acting, she needs to learn how to get control over of herself in the fear simulation. I know it is difficult, but she is Divergent, and she has shown before that she has this talent, so she needs to learn how to control it. Otherwise, there is no way she is going to make it past the Dauntless initiation.

 Do you think Tris was acting out her fear in the simulation, or was she for real? Why do you think this?
