Much better than I thought it would be. ( )

Listened to audiobook and loved every minute. I'm actually really sick of the dystopian thing in YA fiction and was worried that I would be just as annoyed with thi book. I don't know that I would say it's the most unique and mind-blowing read ever, but I did really enjoy it. The one thing that I just could not understand or relate to was the virtue Beatrice chose to align herself with. That seemed awful to me. I'm really looking forward to reading the next installment!

If you want to read something quick and entertaining this book is for you, it's packed with action. But, if using your brain is one of your priorities then avoid Divergent. The writing is horrible, the characters bland, and the gun happy plot constantly shoots itself on the foot.

Also, Roth, if you want to push the whole 'The Good Guys are Christians and the Bad Guys Are Atheists' angle, you should have GOOD people as the heroes, rather than hypocrites. Just a tip. ( )

Loved this. This is the perfect series to start reading after The Hunger Games.

I really like the idea of the different factions and it really made me think. Which one would I chose? I know the one I would like, but I don't think I could get through the training.

I can't imagine living in this world, it's so sad and scary and the government is messed up big time. The beginning of a war starts near the end of the novel. I can't wait to read book two and find out what happens next.

The backgrounds of the characters are really good and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time I read it. I love how everyone is connected in some sneaky way. So many secrets!! ( )
