Not as well-written as the [b:The Hunger Games|2767052|The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)|Suzanne Collins|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1358275334s/2767052.jpg|2792775], but very similar in themes and pace. This dystopian teenage love story tells the story of one girl named Beatrice aka "Tris", who fails to conform to just one faction of society, causing herself to be labeled as 'Divergent.' And she finds out just how dangerous that label can be. ( )

A YA novel that has everything you could ask for to keep you awake and reading at the beach. Fast paced, highly charged action with characters you root for. I'm moving on to the next volume. ( )

I stayed up until 2 last night and finished it today. Very thrilling SciFi YA novel. I'm a little disappointed in the last few chapters - seemed the author wanted to bring the story to an end and set up the follow-up novel. "It was fun while it lasted." ( )

There is a kind of serum between the lines.

The plot is really fast paced making it an easy read.
The concept is interesting, if not entirely believable.
I went between "the book is amazing" being catch by the emotional part of the story,
feeling as would I be one of the characters to "does this make any sense?" ...
There is so much action that you don't have the time to stop and think about it.
I found problematic the use of serums and simulations with no explanation about how and how long it works,
the division into factions, the faction less people and other things...
As I could switch my rational part off and just enjoy the action I couldn't stop to read it.
I imagined that all of this happens in another world where this all could make sense and that all this "human beings" in the story are not like
"human beings" on Earth.
I give it 4 stars because there is something...something that makes you keep reading and ignore your mind or questions
Maybe there is a kind of serum between the lines that makes you flip the pages in a reading frenzy. ( )

Better than the Hunger Games, but didn't really like it anyway. Too predictable, and Tris is basically Katniss. The movie was close to the book at least.
