Divergent Book Discussion (37)Thursday, May 23, 2013
WHAT THE HELL? (Pardon my French). I haven’t even read the chapter yet, but what would possess Tris to work with this dysfunctional psychopath that claims to be of humankind?! I guess she must be that desperate. Jesse.
Okay, this was not as bad as I thought it was going to be before I read the chapter, but I’m glad she took him along because I wouldn’t trust him either at this point.
Wow, he was really meant for Abnegation. I mean the guy killed the rest of the guards and sacrificed himself so Tris could continue on. I mean wow, both of her parents definitely had bravery and selflessness when it came to the end of their lives. But, I really don’t feel that bad about his actual death because he basically decided to disown her when Tris decided to be a Dauntless instead of stay in Abnegation. I mean dude, if you had EVER paid attention to Tris at all, you would know that she was not really selfless that much of the time. She only did it to try and fit in as a member of Abnegation, but besides that, she was not good at disguising her feelings about just not being a good Abnegation citizen. She was never meant for any one faction anyway, because she is DIVERGENT. Anyway, at least her dad did the right thing in the end for Tris, and on that note, I guess I can forgive him for being such a butt in the beginning about Tris’s transfer decision. At the same rate though, I think most parents (as long as they care for their child/children) would have done the same thing for Tris in the end. If not, then they have some serious issues they need to work out.
If you were Peter’s parent, would you sacrifice your life for him? Why or why not? I wouldn’t J
