    I would choose Amity, I love how peaceful they are and how they try to stop conflict! I’d also like to be in Erudite, however, as I love learning new things.

  2. Con Cornelissen April 3rd, 2014 at 10:07 am #

    I would join Candor for the simple reason that I value honesty above all else.

  3. Gillian Cohen April 3rd, 2014 at 10:13 am #

    Having read the series and loved it, I would have to say Dauntless. I want to brave, confident and strong like Tris and I feel facing one’s fear or fears is the path that I would take to bring the inner me out. It’s not easy being the one picked on and too afraid to stand up.

  4. Dineo April 3rd, 2014 at 10:18 am #

    Candor because is the best and I resonate mostly with

  5. Monique Bernic April 3rd, 2014 at 10:18 am #

    I think while I would want Dauntless, I would probably it in most with Erudite as I am big on knowledge and learning everything I can. :)

  6. Richard April 3rd, 2014 at 10:21 am #

    Abnegation as they value selfless service.

  7. Roanne Munsamy April 3rd, 2014 at 10:21 am #

    I would chose Amity, I believe in being happy, forgiving those that have wronged me and having peace in this life which we have been given. Being cruel and rude to others festers hate in ourselves while they continue with life, I don’t believe in wasteing my life that way. We are not here to be judged or judge.

  8. Johann April 3rd, 2014 at 10:26 am #

    Erudite. Because yes I can.

  9. Megan Hall April 3rd, 2014 at 10:26 am #

    Dauntless! For their bravery and the bad ass life that they lead.

  10. Zuleka April 3rd, 2014 at 10:31 am #

    As I would love to join Dauntless, I am not brave enough. I would choose Amity because I love the thought of living in peace having kindness and love towards others.

  11. Kiara April 3rd, 2014 at 10:41 am #

    I would choose Erudite for a mutitude of reasons. I’m obsessed with reading for one. And for another, I love learning new things. Where would we be without knowledge? The world would be a dark place. So I conclude that Erudite is the faction for me.

  12. faeema April 3rd, 2014 at 10:45 am #

    I would probably be dauntless! I am quite adventurous brave and daring in my ways :)

  13. Ruweida April 3rd, 2014 at 10:50 am #

    Dauntless; because I would like to live life on the edge.

  14. Dawn Wallenkamp April 3rd, 2014 at 10:59 am #

    I would join Condor because they are the best faction

  15. kaylene April 3rd, 2014 at 11:02 am #

    I would be Dauntless! C’mon! who wouldnt want to jump out a moving train!!

  16. Mziyanda April 3rd, 2014 at 11:07 am #

    Dauntless because i love adventure!

  17. Zubeida April 3rd, 2014 at 11:18 am #

    As much as I would love to be a cool, daring bad-ass Dauntless initiate, I would choose Erudite. Erudite is perfect for me because I am a creative innovative individual, I constantly roll out new ideas and have a little notebook next to my bed which I jot down the strangest ideas that I think up which I implement at my own pace. I love bringing in my own passion and hobbies into my work, and best of all, cool gadgets!

  18. Rene April 3rd, 2014 at 12:18 pm #

    I would pick Dauntless. I quite like how you get to tackle your fears and get to test your limits. you also learn important skills and it could be put to alot of good. and that zipline they do from the big building sounds amazing!

  19. Kristien Potgieter April 3rd, 2014 at 12:19 pm #

    Erudite – incurable bookworm. Also the Erudite are the ultimate hipsters… they all wear glasses just to look cool.

  20. Davashni April 3rd, 2014 at 12:27 pm #

    I would love to be in Dauntless and be able to face everything head on but I fit into Erudite. I love learning new things and gaining more knowledge. I am lucky to have entered a career that allows me to combine creativity and learning so I am never short of new experiences. I love robots and gadgets and reading. :)

  21. Aisha K April 3rd, 2014 at 1:10 pm #

    I would choose Amity, who wouldn’t want to live in peace and harmony and be able sing to their hearts content without getting gawked at? ;D (Putting aside their manipulative use of the Peace Serum 8o Scary) I wouldn’t even consider Dauntless, my fear landscape would be infinite :’D

  22. Arthur April 3rd, 2014 at 1:24 pm #

    Best name for a faction innit?
    Cool give-away :)

  23. Richenda April 3rd, 2014 at 1:44 pm #

    Abnegation – I think I am selfless as I am willing to sacrifice my time for others and I also love doing community service and charity work.

  24. Hannelie April 3rd, 2014 at 1:57 pm #

    I will join Erudite :-) they say knowledge is power!

  25. Esme L April 3rd, 2014 at 2:04 pm #

    I would join Candor as I believe honesty is the best policy!

  26. Levona April 3rd, 2014 at 2:19 pm #

    I would join Candor – reminds me a bit of myself and i believe that honesty is the best policy :-)

  27. Ilse April 3rd, 2014 at 2:26 pm #

    Gotta be Dauntless – who wouldn’t want to be the @ss-kickers out there?!
    And the Dark makeup and tattoos is a bonus!! 😉

  28. Karin April 3rd, 2014 at 2:59 pm #

    I would choose Amity because they seem like the most relaxed. Make love not war!

  29. Dominik April 3rd, 2014 at 4:21 pm #

    First things first – awesome giveaway Exclusive Books! :) You know how to keep your customers happy uh? 😉

    Alright, so to my response to the actual question.

    I (think) I’d want to join the Erudite (The Intelligent) Faction.

    Reason: Since Erudite faction is all about knowledge, I believe that it’ll give us “nerds” and “geeks” a chance to take over the world! Muhaha! Okay.. (not that I’m saying I am one… but then again, I might be. I guess you’ll never actually know uh? ^_^) anyway…

    The real reason is that with knowledge, I believe we can perhaps eradicate all the bad stuff happening in our world (i.e wars, global warming.etc). if only people were more aware of the negative aspects it. – And oh… because I generally love reading, learning new stuff, and spending time on the pc. ^_^

    Well that’s my reasons. Goodluck to everyone! :)

  30. Arusha Soni April 3rd, 2014 at 4:21 pm #

    Erudite :)

  31. Michelle April 3rd, 2014 at 5:32 pm #

    I would join the dauntless because they taught me what true bravery is.

  32. Rabe April 3rd, 2014 at 6:16 pm #

    Dauntless! Birds of the same feather 😉

  33. Roshni April 3rd, 2014 at 7:32 pm #

    Unmistakably Erudite, knowledge is the ultimate key to eliminate any misunderstanding and imperative for the proper functioning of anything!!!

  34. Mariechen April 3rd, 2014 at 8:39 pm #

    Wow. What a difficult decision (no wonder Tris struggled). I think ultimately I would choose Erudite because I am a bit of an academic and a geek at heart, and I love it. I mean, imagine the libraries they must have!!

    But I don’t like their attitude too much, although one can try not to conform to that.

    I also love the Dauntless but I just don’t think I would survive their initiation!

    What a fantastic giveaway – crossing fingers!

  35. Devon Golden April 3rd, 2014 at 10:33 pm #

    Although Divergence would be great, I would love to be Abnegation. I admire selflessness above all else and believe that Abnegation fits my personality well. Brilliant series I may add…

  36. Logie Thaver April 4th, 2014 at 7:10 am #

    Erudite. Knowledge is power. If I can keep learning l can keep doing better.

  37. Tarin April 4th, 2014 at 7:14 am #

    I would choose to join the Amity Faction. I am creative by heart and believe that the words we say can have a huge impact on a person if it’s cruel it would impact negatively and peaceful and encouraging then positively. In today’s society it’s important to have a giving spirit and help where you can and I think that’s part of the Amity spirit and character. Happiness and Unity of people are important and to be part of a community like that would be great.

  38. Shelley-Ann Grammer April 4th, 2014 at 8:19 am #

    i would choose erudite. i am a believer in knowledge is what gives us a foot steps forward in our life. without reading, learning…how would we know what is the way forward.

    i am huge bookworm as well…so i would definitely be in erudite.

  39. Adhila Khan April 4th, 2014 at 8:21 am #

    I would join Erudite because I love innovation and new ways to do things. Technology is my adrenaline!

  40. ANDREA April 4th, 2014 at 9:07 am #

    Dauntless .. I personify braveness :-)

  41. Elizabeth April 4th, 2014 at 9:52 am #

    Erudite- I love reading and learning, and Erudite’s libraries must be breathtaking!

  42. Peter April 4th, 2014 at 11:15 am #

    Amity as I like nature & would be a farmer

  43. Nikkita April 4th, 2014 at 11:55 am #

    Dauntless because I am brave and courageous!

  44. Tammy Wilkinson April 4th, 2014 at 11:57 am #

    Erudite – As I am a very creative and innovative person and am constantly looking outside the box to discover new and exciting ways to achieve things.

  45. Adrian Phipps April 4th, 2014 at 12:41 pm #

    Erudite for sure as knowledge is Power.. “I think therefore I am” – Descartes is my favorite quote, it should be their motto…

  46. Susann April 4th, 2014 at 12:43 pm #

    Dauntless – I am fearless and believe in standing up for others… but I do belong in the Factionless group more :)

  47. jasmita April 4th, 2014 at 12:43 pm #

    Dauntless. I would love to be brave & fearless..that way nothing can stop me from achieving anything & it would be great to stand up either for myself or others against people i normally wouldn’t!

  48. Anica April 4th, 2014 at 12:44 pm #

    Realistically: Amity – I am a happy person that values creativity, forgiveness and being caring.

    But of course ideally I would be in Dauntless or Erudite, because that is where all the fun happens!

    This prize – so much want!

  49. Vanessa Naidoo April 4th, 2014 at 12:47 pm #

    I would choose Amity. Always for happiness and peace

  50. Kashmiri April 4th, 2014 at 12:51 pm #

    Dauntless, coz I love adventure! :-)

  51. janine April 4th, 2014 at 12:51 pm #

    Could only be Candor. Honesty and transparency being a trait I value immensely.

  52. Sophia April 4th, 2014 at 12:54 pm #

    Awesome comp Exclusive books :)
    I would join Erudite for sure as i believe knowledge is Power. I Love reading so i speak from experience. There is never an end to learning :) It also helps u move forward in life.

  53. Adrian Yen April 4th, 2014 at 12:57 pm #

    Erudite because I love learning and I believe knowledge is power.

  54. Lalitha Moodley April 4th, 2014 at 1:02 pm #

    Divergent, it’s just so inhuman to be only one “thing” there is so much more to us & it is stifling to try for just one…I want to be honest, brave, kind, etc as best as I can be

  55. Ryan Quevauvilliers April 4th, 2014 at 1:02 pm #

    Definitely amity cause I’m a hippy peaceful person and I can relate to the.

  56. Wessley Gombard April 4th, 2014 at 1:12 pm #

    Amity because I love everybody.

  57. Amy Vermeulen April 4th, 2014 at 1:19 pm #

    Dauntless because I am a protector, and would do anything to protect the people I care about. And I love tattoos!

  58. faith sape April 4th, 2014 at 1:19 pm #

    Amity – she’s free spirited.

  59. Daniella Schneider April 4th, 2014 at 1:25 pm #

    I would probably pick dauntless, just for the fact that they live life to the full. Experiecing all the thrills and just taking risks. And that seems like a pretty good life to me!

  60. Tsholofelo April 4th, 2014 at 1:27 pm #

    I would choose the Abnegation,because they are direct, outspoken and honest.

  61. MeeA Parkins April 4th, 2014 at 1:29 pm #

    Dauntless – I’d love to live life fearlessly.

  62. Shashmika Sonakjee April 4th, 2014 at 1:35 pm #

    Dauntless. I am selfish. I am brave.

  63. liesel mortlock April 4th, 2014 at 1:54 pm #

    I would be hard pressed just to choose one. Everyone of them have attributes that resonate within me. All of them packaged together, would be what I would want to choose, for the all have great values to live by. Many thanx.

  64. Tahlia Smith April 4th, 2014 at 1:59 pm #

    I would choose Amity because they are all about peacefulness and kindness, and what better than being kind to one another?! Also, they love things to do with the earth, like planting and stuff, and I love that sort of thing. I relate to the amity faction because I am too a happy and caring person.

  65. Sihle April 4th, 2014 at 2:01 pm #

    I’m definitely Divergent! (Can I say that?) I can’t choose between Amity, Erudite and Candor. So, why choose when I can be all of them – even if that makes me an ‘outcast’.

  66. Storm April 4th, 2014 at 2:09 pm #

    After giving some thought. I’ve decided on Amity. I find that it suits my personality best. I am creative and am a strong believer in peace and all the hippy vibe stuff. And I’d like some of that happy potion they gave Tris 😛

  67. Taherah April 4th, 2014 at 2:25 pm #

    Dauntless – in their blood runs honour and bravery, everything I aspire to be/

  68. Erin Crawford April 4th, 2014 at 3:00 pm #

    I would be Dauntless! ♡ The values that they stand for are what I work for in my life. I believe in standing up and protecting those who cannot defend themselves, and having the courage to do what needs to be done. As their manifesto says: “We believe in ordinary acts of bravery. In the courage that drives one person to stand up for another.” And also because I have a strong sense of adventure and a need for excitement! 😀

  69. Marco Charles April 4th, 2014 at 3:07 pm #

    Amity because I am all for nature and recycle

  70. Lucy April 4th, 2014 at 3:26 pm #

    Candor as I believe that you can’t go far wrong if you’re telling the truth.

  71. Shawn Anderson April 4th, 2014 at 3:39 pm #

    In this novel, society is organized into factions based solely on five virtues: intelligence, honesty, peacefulness, selflessness, and bravery. Each faction works intensively to cultivate only its respective trait, ignoring all others. Often this leads to friction – Candor loathes Amity for how frequently they lie to keep the peace, and Abnegation turn up their noses at Erudite, believing that intelligence can yield greed. Through the discourse that begins and continues through the end of the novel, this system is intended to show the importance of all five of these values; by acknowledging just one and disparaging the others, citizens are in many way worse off than they would’ve been if not sorted into these factions at all. Also, the popular saying “faction before blood” emphasizes the warped sense of allegiance at the heart of the faction system. Tris spends the entire novel struggling to come to terms with the fact that because of her Divergence, none of the factions will ever truly define her the way they do for others. She will never fit perfectly anywhere; she simply has to form her own path through her own choices, one step at a time. Which is why I would not join a faction. If there was a choice I would chose to also be a Divergent. In many ways “Divergent” mirror’s South Africa’s own Apartheid history which ended with the help of Mandela. Therefore I would not put myself in a faction, we make our own Truth and me have to form our own path through our choices & individuality.

  72. Shon Sansom April 4th, 2014 at 5:09 pm #

    Amity – I would love to live that peace loving life on a farm. Awesome!!!

  73. Lythann Emslie April 4th, 2014 at 6:49 pm #

    Amity. Peace is what we need all over

  74. Whitney Knipe April 5th, 2014 at 4:33 am #

    I will join Candor because loyalty and honesty is what I’m all about

  75. Michelle April 5th, 2014 at 9:06 am #

    I’d probably end up choosing candor because I tend to speak my mind and tell the truth. Very often I acciedentally offend people.

  76. Kayla April 5th, 2014 at 10:37 am #

    I normally say Abnegerudamity (Abnegation, Erudite and Amity) but if I chose one…I guess it would be Amity. I think of Erudite because I’m addicted to reading, but I realised that in Amity, you still get to read and help people and do everything, as well as being peaceful and kind! So it’s perfect. Although I would struggle with not being able to disagree on things, I love a good debate. Thanks for the competition!

  77. Jason April 6th, 2014 at 12:19 pm #

    Dauntless seems to have the coolest lifestyle- with all their extreme activities, and living life to the full. And the zipline is amazing!

  78. Thapelo April 7th, 2014 at 7:32 am #

    Erudite…… Because I took a Divergent Quiz last year after reading the book and the results put me in that faction. And I agree because reading is what I do best and acquiring knowledge is what I do best.

  79. Raquel de Sousa April 7th, 2014 at 8:13 am #

    I would def be in Erudite… Knowledge ia power and lets just say… BBC Knowledge is my favourite channel 😉

  80. Karina April 7th, 2014 at 10:10 am #

    I would probably be amity because im someone who avoids conflict

  81. Pavani April 7th, 2014 at 10:20 am #

    Abnegation because I value selflessness, and helping others in need. I also believe that putting others before you, and owning the same things as your peers will eradicate negative feelings such as envy and competitiveness and result in a peaceful living environment.

  82. Tammy February April 8th, 2014 at 7:39 am #

    Although it has such a bad rep in Divergent, I think I’d be suited to Erudite. Except, unlike those using it to gain the upper hand, I’d dedicate myself to finding knowledge that will contribute to helping society; be it in terms of medical research for cures, strategies for planning and implementing housing development in underdeveloped areas and using whatever knowledge I can glean to make a positive impact. Helpfulness comes in all forms; the imparting and practical application of learning, I believe, is one of them.

  83. Charmaine April 8th, 2014 at 8:11 am #

    To honest when I looked at the question, first thing that came to mind was why not be all of the factions, but one faction for me would ultimately encompass all and that is Erudite ( The Intelligent)… We need more people in the world like this cause our world lacks this hence we finding so many areas of poverty and lack. I would love to help the world heal..

  84. Alister April 8th, 2014 at 8:23 am #


    Simply because I value peace and friendship. I’m also creative and artistic but what better way to fight a war than with peace, fighting fire with fire doesn’t necessarily bring results as we have all seen.

    Free hugs here!

  85. Cherezaan April 8th, 2014 at 8:33 am #

    I think I would be DIvergent because I value so many of what the different factions stand for. I value honestly and truth (Candor), I value bravery (Dauntless), I value Selflessness (Abnegation), I value peace and friendship (Amity)and I value Intelligence (Erudite). It is difficult to choose one when they are so interlinked in my everyday life, but if forced to choose one, like Tris in the book, I would choose Dauntless because bravery is often born in moments of truth, being brave is incredibly selfless (if it were for the protection of friends which highlights Amity) and is a test of intelligence.

  86. Callie Pickering April 8th, 2014 at 9:01 am #

    This is a bit like asking people which Hogwarts House they would like to belong to the most. Just like Gryffindor, Dauntless is romanticised for their heroism but a deeper look into the faction and you’ll see the cruelty and ego that seems to permeate its members.

    Erudite and Dauntless appear to be suffering from similar delusions of grandeur.

    Amity seems like a peaceful and easygoing existence, where people are good and kind to each other until you realize that they are being drugged into that peaceful stupor.

    Abnegation are selfless to a fault. Much like Eddard Stark, that selfless nature is their downfall.

    And lastly, there’s Candor. I myself value honesty immensely but there is a difference between being honest in a way that will make people respect that honesty and being cruelly honest and for some reason the latter is the only one that features in these books.

    Having said all this, I choose the Factionless.

  87. Nokuthula April 8th, 2014 at 9:31 am #

    As a proud Fanatics cardholder, my “constant pursuit of knowledge” makes me an ERUDITE. You have no idea how much I was teased at school for my ‘nerd tendencies’ – the glasses didn’t help either :p

  88. Shannon April 8th, 2014 at 10:13 am #

    All the factions have a part that appeal to me so it’s difficult to choose one above the others… I think I would pick Dauntless, to be able to face my fears, or Amnity, for their peaceful, kind nature.

  89. Michelle April 8th, 2014 at 11:26 am #

    Erudite. Then I could just read all day 😀

  90. Tracy April 8th, 2014 at 2:07 pm #

    I would choose Dauntless for a chance to learn to face my fears and gain independence :)

  91. Jenske April 8th, 2014 at 6:02 pm #

    I would strive to be all five, but if forced to make a decision I would choose Dauntless because it encompasses all the factions: Candor – the truth that you are willing to stand up for and protect. Abnegation – the willingness to sacrifice yourself for others in a struggle. Amity – the love for others and your willingness to protect them and their way of life. Erudite – using intelligence to outsmart your opponent. And lastly, Dauntless – the bravery to believe and feel all the above mentioned and still to fight for it.

  92. Rod April 8th, 2014 at 7:33 pm #

    Amity- I’d like to live in peace where I can still do all the other things :)

  93. Cathy April 8th, 2014 at 9:39 pm #

    Erudite because I am a total book geek and like a sponge absorbing everything I read…love to constantly keep up to date with everything new :)

  94. Dan April 8th, 2014 at 9:42 pm #

    Dauntless sounds awesome and I love challenges – life is a challenge in itself and one must learn to become fearless and independent to survive against the odds.

  95. lauren April 9th, 2014 at 8:50 am #

    Dauntless would be mine I LOVE KNOWLEDGE and learning. I love information, I believe that knowledge and information combined with education is almost like a super power. I would take on the challenge and love every second of it. I have soooooooooo many fear so STRIVING to overcome my fears like in DAUNTLESS would be FANTASTICCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC XXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    Amazing prize Xxxxxxx

  96. Karmen April 9th, 2014 at 9:15 am #
