Can't wait to read further in the series
Strong young female protagonist my ass! Every time her life is in danger, her boyfriend appears out of nowhere to save her. This is a fantasy that we MUST move past. MUST. Young women must have heroes who save themselves and each other, PLEASE.
I actually preferred this series over The Hunger Games....can't wait for the third installment.
The world is about to end and few humans saved it , built a wall with electronic application and divided humans as per capabilities Abnegation for politician and people who serve humanity, Amity for farming and healing, Candor for justice, Dauntless for army, and Erudite for businesses and Corporates and research, our protagonist who came from Abnegation background and choose Dauntless and her brother choose Erudite went ways and did there training and soon Tris aka Beatrice came to know that Er...
Check out my reviews on the main page of each individual book!
Imagine if you were in a world, where you had to choose your future at the age of sixteen. That’s what Beatrice Prior has to do in the post apocalyptic future. In Chicago, there are five different Factions, Dauntless, Abnegation, Erudite, Candor, and Amity. During her simulation test, which is a test that tells someone which faction they belong in, Beatrice’s results are inconclusive. They state that she belongs in three factions, instead of just one. This makes her a Divergent. During the Choos...
I am in love with these books, they are clever and dynamic. I enjoyed the plot which kept me on edge, I loved the tension between Tris and Four and I had the satisfaction of gloating about having the ending as one of my own scenarios. I also loved that Tris wasn't another weak, lets-lie-down-half-comatose-because-my-boyfriend-has-left-me type of girl, but she was independent, brave and even though she knew Tobias wouldn't be happy with her decisions she continued to do it because she was her own...
Really, really liked these two books. They were different from the other books I've read. I liked all the characters and how they grew over the story. I connected with them even though I didn't think I would. The universe Veronica Roth created was great. The atmosphere and detail was perfect. The action, adventure and romance lead to two thrilling books. They were filled with suspense and surprises. Kept me reading until 2 in the morning!
Divergent - 3 starsDivergent is based in future dystopian world where the people are divided in factions. It was a little slow in the beginning but I was intrigued nevertheless to find out what the each faction does or rather what the people in each faction do.Insurgent - 2 starsThis book dragged on so much and there was very little action. I did not like it.
If you enjoyed the Hunger Games you will love this. Thought provoking and interesting social commentary.
Entertaining as far as YA dystopian fiction is concerned. Borrowed from the local library's Overdrive collection. Lel.
remember when you were 12 and thought divergent was a masterpiece and wrote your hearts as "<4" because i dOGreat Series
Interesting dystopian series with lots of fast paced action throughout. The story is a bit juvenile, especially the quick bits of love story thrown in, but the intended audience was the teen/young adult group. Overall, the concept of this world, is intriguing. Five factions (Amity, Candor, Erudite, Dauntless, and Abnegation), each tasked with upholding a certain virtue of humanity, make up the known world. Each person within the faction decides to stay with the faction they were born to or join
The plot was a little more meandering than I would have liked. I'm not sure the book lived up to its title based on the course of events, and the romantic relationship got too close to Twilight for my taste. When we finally got to the big disclosure, the impact was anticlimactic. As the middle book in a series, it's not that I expected a 100% return on my lingering questions, but I needed something a lot more substantive for the time I took to consume the book. This is the problem with a series,...
I really like these books and the idea of living in a dystopian city, though i will be factionless I mean is too hard.I like the moral each faction have, and how they divided to avoid war, I´m very intrigued about what´s outside the fence and the main reason to do all of it. I truly believe each faction is right about what produce a war; lies, selfish, ignorance, cowardice etc. I still don´t trust in most of the leaders, they have always something to hide.These books have made me think of a lot
I am actually becoming hooked to the series. The second book, the Insurgent, gives me a lot more excitement as deep, dark secrets were revealed. Though most of my friends despise Tris' recklessness in the book, I actually felt otherwise. She was indeed a character which has developed and I can see her Divergence better. This book actually tells about the future world - a world divided into factions. Each faction believes in a certain trait which could prevent the war. An aptitude test is taken b...
For those like me who enjoyed the Hunger Games, this was a really great variation of the "distopian-the-world-is-almost-dead-but-a-young-teenage-girl-will-save-all" genre. Roth is a well paced writer and I am happy that I read the first two in one sitting. The concept was ingenious, and the plot twists were both well timed and surprising. The main character had serious flaws, which made her both frustrating and very identifiable.
Really enjoyed reading this! I was totally immersed within this whole world for a couple of days - had to buy the second before I had even finished reading the first! I loved it so much that I (embarrassingly) brought it on my kindle as well as having the book copy...Thought the story was brilliant, and the writing better than many - personally rate this higher than the Hunger Games!
I really enjoyed these books. As a few friends told me I think they were better than Hunger Games. I can't wait for the next one to come out. There are parts of the story that make you think, but you still want to know what happens next. Of course both books ended wanted you to immediately know what next. Now I have to wait.
The world is awash with these young adult dystopian trilogies and in many ways we have come to know what to expect. The Divergent series, in my opinion, is one of the better trilogies in the category. It isn’t the best but it is better than some of the books it is sitting beside. As a whole, if you’re a fan of dystopian worlds then the Divergent books will probably tickle your fancy.
Great young adult series!! Divergent is one of my favorite books that I have ever read, the love story is great, the characters are complex and there a lot of twists in the story. You will not be bored reading this series!
Great start to one of the best series ever. Really great concept and out of the box thinking. I loved the world she created and how easy it was to believe everything about it. Veronica is incredibly talented and there is a reason these books have been so successful.
loved it! Not as "Hunger Games"ish as I had expected...really not any similarities other than the govt type problems and the age range of the characters. Loved both!!!
I could not get my eyes off the book!
divergent first read 11/2011
Insurgent 3rd time reading “We're all right, you know,' he says quietly. 'You and me. Okay?' My chest aches, and I nod. 'Nothing else is all right.' His whisper tickles my cheek. 'But we are.” “Tobias,” I say. But whatever I was about to say gets lost in my head, and I press my mouth to his, because I know that kissing him will distract me from everything. He kisses me back. His hand starts on my cheek, and then brushes over my side, fitting to the bend in my waist, curving over my hip, sl...
It was only a matter of time before this series got bad. In this case, it was the second book- Insurgent. Divergent was good. The writing was ok, the characters were meh but the overall experience was pleasant, the sequels are another story. Insurgent began the downward spiral... I think- and I have found this issue with some other authors- that when some authors find out their books are getting adapted into movies, their writing becomes lazy. This is a prime example. The first book is to me, a
The world around Beatrice Prior is crumbling down. The book is an easy read, but enjoyable too. For those looking for a strong female protagonist, keep looking. Although the book certainly contains plenty of strong females, Beatrice Prior is not the female hero I imagined. No matter the situation, she is always rescued by her boyfriend. Romantic, sure. Feminist, not so much. Even though the character of ‘Tris’ is quite disappointing, I am still looking forward to reading the third installment. T...
Reading this directly after The Hunger Games was a bad idea, as they are a pale imitation. I really like Tris, and liked the slow burn with Four, but I didn't like it as much when it turned into a full blown relationship- that was what I appreciated about The Hunger Games, is that it didn't make it into a romance novel. The factions bit felt a little forced. It's fine, but not as good as The Hunger Games.
