Divergent is my favourite YA book. EVER! I had this sitting on my shelf for a long time before I read it until one day I was sick off work picked it up at random and a few hours later I'd finished it. It had gripped me, thrilled me, ripped my heart out and I loved every freakin second of it! I kicked myself for not having picked it up before. I loved the characters of Tris and Four (*whispers* Four the most but who can blame me)and in my heart I'm Dauntless! Divergent is the kind of book Hunger Games wishes it could have been. I have also made it recquired reading for my book club girls who also love it. I can't wait for allegiant to come out and also devastated it's in the middle of my holiday so I'll have to wait till I get home to read it. It doesn't matter how old you are, what your taste in books is it just isn't possible not to utterly love this series. Here's hoping the movie does it justice. ( )

I didn't expect to, but I really loved this book. The complexities of the story and the dystopian world build as the book goes along. At the beginning I was "take it or leave it", but I became literally hooked. Enough was left open-ended for me to question the rules of the world that the author created. Time and again I was surprised, and now, I'm left wanting more. Excellent! ( )

Exhilarating. Thrilling. Intelligent. Enough clues were dropped to make guessing fun (and sometimes I guessed right), but there were too many unexpected turns for the story to become predictable. Interesting and believable characters and good character development. ( )

YA distopia strikes again! I quite enjoyed this, found the ideas of the factions interesting, if a little similar to the houses and the choosing hat from Harry Potter. A quick, fun read. ( )
  Laurochka | Feb 6, 2016 |
Love me some dystopic YA, and this is a good one! Really 4.5 stars, but still a fast-paced, intense ride. It kept me up LATE and made me want to lock myself in a room and ignore my family in order to read it. Fans of The Hunger Games and the Razorland books by Ann Aguirre will enjoy this one. Looking forward to the next installment. ( )
