Welcome to another Road Trip Wednesday, a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway posts a weekly writing- or reading-related question and anyone can answer it on their own blogs. Check out their post for links to other Highwayers’ answers!
This week’s topic is:
What Faction from Veronica Roth’s Divergent & Insurgent would you be?
Can’t stop, won’t stop! As a devoted member of Ravenclaw, I knew from the first description of Erudite that they were my peeps. So, even though it turns out Erudite is headed up by [SPOILER!] some ethically twisted psychos, I’m holding out for redemption.
Erudite’s chosen path as a faction reminds me of the Patton Oswalt joke: “We’re science: we’re all about coulda, not shoulda.” When left alone with the pure possibility of what information can mean, people can be dangerous. That’s why factions like Erudite only work well in concert with others, those who can provide a more practical perspective.
But I’m hopeful that in the third and final Divergent book, Erudite will get their chance to use all those beautiful brains for good!
What about you? What faction would you be? Do you think Erudite is going to get the chance to redeem us unrepentant brainiacs??
