What I wanted was YA dystopian fiction as intense and thought provoking as The Hunger Games. What I got was more like Fifty Shades for the pre-teen crowd. It did pick up once the inter-faction conflict finally got underway but by then the audiobook was almost over. And since I still wasn’t fully onboard with the whole faction/divergent thing I can’t say I really cared. ( )

Heavily influenced by The Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Ender's Game and Twilight. ( )

I read this after reading the Hunger Games series (which I loved) but fell in love with this series even more. The subtle love connection between Tris and Tobias is beautiful to read and it isn't even the main storyline. But it is probably why I love this book so much. I can't wait to see the movie version.

Derivative. She owes Suzanne Collins big time. ( )
  AnnAnderson | Jun 25, 2016 |
Divergent is about a girl called Tris. She lives in a society where everyone has to play their part by joining a faction. Tris, however, does not feel like she belongs to just one of these factions which makes her forced to live a life she doesn't want to live. When she decides to go her own way, she chooses a life in which nobody can be trusted. Along the way she meets a boy who, even though he seems dangerous, makes her feel safe.

After watching the film I just had to read the book and I must say that the book was more convincing than the film. The way Veronica Roth portrayed Tris made it easy for me to see myself in her shoes which is a real plus. Tris is a strong character and has her own mind. These traits make it interesting to read about her journey and the people she meets during that journey.
