Two Things Tuesdays for 23 Apr 2013

Two Things Tuesdays is a quick and simple way to give a teaser of insight to the book I’m currently reading. These could be quotes or thoughts and reactions.

  1. “I have realised that part if being Dauntless is being willing to make things more difficult for yourself in order to be self-sufficient. … we’re not supposed to need help. We are supposed to be capable of anything. I like that.”
  2. “The goal in my life isn’t just…to be happy.”

I’m only at Chapter 13 of Divergent, and I still don’t know how to feel about Tris. I keep remembering that she chose this life (As opposed to Katniss who was thrown into The Hunger Games and forced to fight.) Am I supposed to believe that the goal in Tris’s life is to be miserable? Is she just saying that to be defensive and put on the tough girl act? Am I supposed to sympathize with Tris? If she were Abnegation (selfless) then why would she want to have the toughest life possible with a bunch of weapon-loving jerks?

I may feel more emotionally involved in the book once I finish it. I’ll do my review as soon as possible.
