Spotlight on Erudite

Coming to you from Reading Lark over the next week we have a series of spotlights focusing on Insurgent by Veronica Roth, the second book in the Divergent trilogy. Today we start with the Lark’s very own team, the Erudite! In case you haven’t already noticed, we have a great Team Erudite giveaway to enter here, and you can catch up with Lark Jen’s review of Insurgent here

 If you want to keep up with all things Erudite then you can look on our Tumblr page here, and don’t forget to vote for Team Erudite! Now we know that technically we are the bad guys, but we thought we are not so bad... in fact there are some quite cool people who could belong to Erudite as well as us! 

Faction: Erudite 

 Characteristics of faction: 
 Seek knowledge and are very curious. 
Supply the scientists, researchers and teachers to society. 
Wear blue clothing. 
Extremely logical, always do the ‘logical thing’ - they can seem emotionless at times because of this.   

 “It doesn’t sit well with me, how much our society needs Erudite to function. But they are essential – without them, there would be inefficient farming, insufficient medical treatments, and no technological advance.” Insurgent pg. 34   

 People/Characters who could be Erudite: 
 Mr Spock, Star Trek 

Hermione Granger, Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling

Doctor Who

Sherlock Holmes

Bitterblue from Graceling & Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore

Alec Lightwood, The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare 

Albert Einstein

Professor Xavier, Xmen

Temperance Brennan, Bones

Rupert Giles, Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Sheldon, Big Bang Theory

 Who else do you think could be Erudite? 

 Why Erudite is the best: 
 Without the doctors, scientists and teachers of the world, millions would starve and die of disease! Don’t forget Insurgent is released on May 1st!
