I liked Divergent, the first book in the series. It was exciting and very interesting to see how the society was split into different factions and how and why people chose the factions they did. The book is fairly predictable but still exciting. I think this is a great book for my middle school students.

A great story that reads quickly. Characters are engaging and heroic, at times the plot was difficult to follow, at times it required a reread to understand. ( )

want to read this bad. ( )
  englisherna | Apr 8, 2015 |
My expectations were low to begin with, but with the movies out, I figured I'd at least give the first book a try. It was fine, but I don't think I'll bother with the rest. Much of this book is just too similar to The Hunger Games - dystopian future, strong female lead with heartbroken boy crush....*yawn*. I had a road trip to take for work and wanted a book to listen to in the car. It kept me awake. ( )
  TheMadTurtle | Apr 7, 2015 |
I enjoyed reading Divergent. It is a good dystopian book and the premise is intriguing. I think the best part of the book is the love story, between Tris and Four and also Tris and her family.

This book is mostly a book that could be used in a sociology classroom or psychology classroom. For the most part most of the readership will be reading this book for enjoyment.
