New Veronica Roth Interview!
Kiley Roache, a sophomore at Nazareth Academy and Student columnist for The Doings Western Springs, had the opportunity to interview Veronica Roth.
Here is a little of what she had to say:
In Divergent and Insurgent, Beatrice Prior really does learn how to take charge of her world. Her world is a dystopian Chicago which consists of five factions which each try to stop evil by embracing certain human qualities and rooting out others. The factions Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Dauntless and Erudite blame selfishness, aggression, duplicity, cowardice and ignorance, respectively, for the problems of the world.
When asked which trait she blamed, Roth said, “Well, I’m sort of with Abnegation on this one. I think its selfishness, mostly. Just people looking out for their own best interests and failing to see how they can look out for other people. So if I had to pin it on something, it would be that.”
Roth added she agrees with all the factions in a way saying, “people are not perfect, so they will always sort of fail in some way.”
