While only Divergent--the first book of the series--is the book of the month, feel free to use this subforum to discuss the rest of the series or to talk about the movies, but make sure not to post spoilers unless noted in the topic title.

I would rather learn to control my fears rather than having none at all. Fear gives you an edge, it makes you more aware and less willing to go off half-cocked because of overconfidence. When you learn to control these fears it's like being leveled up in a game - you have the experience required to overcome more of the same.
