I don't know. I read the thing. Lot's of teen angst where the main characters that are in love with each other seemingly fight the entire book. And there is a definite de-emphasizing of the biggest coolest part of the first book which is the whole factions thing.

But the writing is better - the emotions a little deeper - so in that respect it's a better book. But it still could have been so much better. With the introduction of the outside world you start to wander in the same old dsytopian novel that everyone - writes which is a negative btw.

There's a novel written by Samuel Delany called Dhalgren (definitely not YA!) that explores a city in ruins ruled by gangs. It's not a book for everyone - the sex portrayed is graphic - and the writing is oblique at best. And yet, the world he builds and the characters he creates emblazon themselves on your mind. The world built in the Divergent novels don't - but possibly could have.

Tris and her friends run away to the factionless sector and try and find out what the secret that the faction leaders keep and why the Divergents seem so dangerous to some. This is an entertaining story with some interesting characters, although it's not quite as original as I would have wished. This second part in the trilogy is very much a bridge between the first and last, but is still a solid read. Looking forward to finding out how it all ends in the next installment. ( )

Summary: Tris has survived the first round of criticism of her chosen faction, which is Dauntless. The Dauntless have a fearless personality, but Tris is anything but fearless. Tris is faced with the reality that the world she knows may be falling apart at the hands of a known suspect.

Personal Response: I thoroughly enjoyed this novel as much as I liked the first one. I would highly suggest that students read this novel after they have read the first. This novel is action packed and leaves the reader hanging on every word.

Curriculum Connection: This book is necessary for the library. Utopian societies allow students to take a step out of their current lives, and live in a different one. ( )

Great series and the second in the series does not disappoint. I can't wait for the 3rd. ( )

Still a good story, but not at the same level as Divergent. Not a reason to stay away, but there are some "huh" moments in following these characters. The human traits of the factions (separate personality traits for each faction) make this story fascinating to think about. Good story teller that kept my interest to the end. ( )

I won't write a spoiler here, but Veronica Roth really has a way of wrapping up the end of the story while leaving the reader gasping at the revelation, and desperate to read more.
