The narrator of Divergent is Beatrice "Tris" Prior. The novel is written in the first person so the perspective is limited to Tris's immediate thoughts and experiences.
Divergent is written in the present tense.
In the world of Divergent, society has been divided into five subgroups, or factions. Each faction espouses a dominant character trait. For example, Candor is the faction of truthfulness or honesty, and Amity is the faction of kindness or friendliness. The term divergent refers to people who do not fit into a single faction of society but rather have a combination of traits. Divergents also appear to have mental powers that allow them to resist tactics such as mind control or hallucination.
