19 Divergent Facts from Veronica Roth

5. Roth considered writing parts of Allegiant from Caleb’s and Natalie’s point of view.

At the 2013 National Book Festival, you stated that you almost wrote the book from Caleb’s and someone else’s perspective. Can you tell us who that person was?

VR: I tried out Caleb, I tried out Tobias (obviously that one worked), and I tried out journal entries retrospective from Natalie’s point of view to intersperse with the forward narrative. That couldn’t sustain over the entire book, and it didn’t address the story from the angles that I wanted to address it from, so I had to get rid of that one too.

Was it weird writing from Tobias’ point of view or did you love switching voices?

VR: I thought it was fun because Tris’ voice is very stereotypically masculine, very straightforward, very direct, kind of repetitive. Tobias’ is a little more poetic, a little more descriptive, and he generally shares more. Tris is always withholding, but Tobias shares everything, so it was interesting to see those dynamics and how they turned over my expectations of those people. It was fun, but it was hard.

Veronica Roth Interview With New York Magazine

Remember that tease we got about a Veronica Roth announcement due this weekend?  Well your wait is over because it’s here!  New York Magazine recently interviewed Veronica Roth where she talks Divergent, dystopian literature, and building her empire!

veronica roth nymag

On March 31, 2010, 21-year-old ­Veronica Roth wrote a blog post titled “You + $$$ = ?” Roth was a creative-­writing major at Northwestern who planned to support herself as a proof­reader after graduation. The exercise on her frequently updated blog was about imagining success: What would she do if she suddenly had the resources of ­Stephenie Meyer or J. K. Row­ling? Roth’s answers were unapologetically practical—buy a house in Wisconsin, invest, donate to charity—and her wildest dream involved jumping into a pool of mini-marshmallows. Mostly, the aspiring young-adult author just wanted to work. “Day jobs? Pshh. Who needs them? If I could set up a nice little room in which I could write all day and supply myself with infinite tea, I’d be pretty much good.”

Two weeks later, Roth sold her first book, a dystopian YA novel about a society segregated by moral virtues and a girl who doesn’t fit in. Divergent was published in May 2011 and spent eleven consecutive weeks on the New YorkTimes’ children’s best-seller list; the ­sequel, Insurgent, debuted at No. 1 a year later. The series has remained there ever since, thanks to a wildly enthusiastic, bordering on maniacal, audience that includes not just teenage girls but their brothers, their mothers, and a growing number of childless adults (Divergentcoincided with the rise of The Hunger Games, the ­industry-wide scramble to succeed ­Twilight, and the resultant YA dominance in the pop-cultural landscape). Since no popular YA series is without a movie franchise, Summit Entertainment—the studio behind Twilight—will release Divergent early next year, and its cast (Kate Winslet, Next Big Thing Shailene Woodley) ­suggests similar expectations for the film version. Meanwhile, the contents of the trilogy’s upcoming final book, Allegiant (coming out October 22), are being guarded like Katniss Everdeen in the first half of Mockingjay. So if Roth isn’t quite at Twilight or Hunger Games levels, then she would seem to be on her way—or far enough along, at least, to tackle a few things on the list she wrote three years ago. Find a house, maybe. Figure out what else grown-ups do with large sums of money.

USA Today Interviews Veronica Roth

USA Today released this five-question video interview with Veronica Roth today where she reveals her reaction to seeing Theo James and Shailene Woodley as Four and Tris for the first time and a memorable encounter with a fan.  Click image below to watch!

1. How did the idea for the Divergent trilogy come together, and now that you’ve finished, how has it evolved?

Originally it came from this concept in psychology called exposure therapy where people with phobias are repeatedly exposed to their fears until their brain reconditions it. That’s the little nugget, and it took on a life of its own. As Tris grows up and her world gets bigger, I’m doing the same thing at the same time. When this began, I’d just graduated college and my world just kept getting bigger.

2. What are fans are dying to see in the final book?

So far, Tris and Four’s relationship has been somewhat chaste and I think everyone is rooting for things to get a little more physically intimate, let’s just put it that way. In Allegiant, the relationship definitely develops, but I won’t spoil more.

3. You went to Northwestern and live in Chicago now. Why did you use your city as a dystopian setting?

There’s something really fun about it because it’s so clean compared to other cities. Imagining it all destroyed and wrecked was really interesting — not that I want to see it destroyed and wrecked! It also just kind of appeared out of nowhere. When I wrote the first draft of Divergent, there were just a lot of trains and this marsh and I just realized that it’s already in Chicago. My favorite buildings, Sears (Willis)Tower and the Merchandise Mart, are both in the books. So are the Ferris wheel and the Bean.

4. Did you envision certain characters in the starring roles for the movie adaptation?

I don’t really have a clear image of my characters as I’m writing — it’s kind of like I’m squinting at it from a distance. They’re just blurry people who do things. But when Shailene (Woodley) and Theo (James) were cast and I saw their screen test together, it was absolutely perfect.

5. What writers have inspired you?

I had this stretch of childhood where I read a ton of children’s fiction, then I grew up and read it all over again. I’m a big fan of Lois Lowry, of The Giver, and Madeleine L’Engle, of A Wrinkle in Time. But my dad also instilled in me a science fiction streak. I read Dune by Frank Herbert when I was far too young to understand it.
