    Written on April 23, 2018
    "The Divergent series is nothing to get excited over. It offers the same things other young adult dystopian books offer without any ground breaking changes to the formula. I was quite bored throughout reading this series, because it was so predictable. The young main characters had to rebel against an evil government to create peace; this is exact plot ever adult novel uses and it has got tiring. I feel asleep several times reading the series and the only reason I finished it was because I heard it was such a great series, so I continued to read it hoping it would get better. I was completely wrong with my optimism. "

    "Not only is this a great read but its an introduction to a great series. Totally worth picking this up to fill your nights."

    "Veronica Roth continues to impress the reader with her ability to weave a good plot from one book to another. I get the feeling she has laid out her books with the intention of stepping from one level of adventure to the next step in the unraveling mystery. The dystopian novels are a real treat to read and I would say to anyone who has an interest in this type of book to give it a try. "

    "This book is definitely a page turner, in spite of some of the author's narrative faults. I felt that the main character could have been developed a bit more fully and that some of the supporting characters fell a bit flat, but the story itself was quite involving. I have to admit, I couldn't put this book down! It was by no means a great literary masterpiece, but it was an engaging and intriguing story nonetheless that it worth a read if you are a fan of books like the Hunger Games or dystopian novels in general."
  • Lisa Nichols
    Written on April 22, 2018
    "Since I loved Hunger Games, my friend told me I would love Divergent, as it was about another strong female lead character making tough life choices. Also being science fiction was a plus. Couldn't put it down and can't wait to get to the next book in the series. Beatrice is a strong model character for all women and this book is very appropriate for teen girls."

    "I love books that have strong heroines. I have read this whole series and watched all the movies. They are really good and I couldn't want to read or watch more. The Divergent series is one of my favorites and I think the best. "

    "Female protagonists are very popular these days, and Divergent has one of the most popular female heroes in novels today. The story of Divergent takes place through the eyes of female star Beatrice Prior. She has to go through many troubling circumstances in order to restore peace to the world. This is definitely a great book!"

    "I really enjoy a good science fiction type story, and Divergent hit the spot with it's post apocalypse take on revolution. My teenagers really like it, too, as they felt Beatrice was quite a heroine and somewhat of a role model for standing true to your beliefs."

    "Divergent is a book by Veronica Roth that is available from Amazon. It is the first book of the Divergent trilogy. It has also been made into a popular movie staring Shailene Woodly. The series has been very popular with teenage girls so I would say it fits the topic nicely."
  • Ryan Rose
    Written on May 3, 2018
    "Divergent is a great option for people who enjoyed the Hunger Games. Divergent is probably one of the easier novels to draw similarities between real life and the characters because there is more to it than just a dark futuristic setting filled with poverty or a constant struggle. The novel is definitely better than the movie, which is also good in it's own right."
  • Mildred Edwards
    Written on May 7, 2018
    "This book was so much better than the movie. The movie omitted a lot of details and I think these details would have made the movie even better. I think this is definitely a good bood and would recommend reading the entire series. "

I'm pretty simpleminded and dull, so these theme suit me like a pair of Crocs. I'm 35 years old by the way."

The characters pull you in from the first chapter, and the story line has so many twists and turns you will want to read the book twice to see if you missed anything.

    "This book is the first in the Divergent trilogy, which is the book series that inspired a major movie series. This trilogy is set in Chicago and is great for fans of dystopian novels such as The Hunger Games and Maze Runers. I would recommend this book for young adults or those without much experience in post-apocalyptic worlds. For those with more experience reading these types of books this may seem a little elementary and meainstream "

    "Divergent is definitely an action adventure novel. The Divergent movie series is based on these novels and they are far superior to the movies (of course! Isn't that the way it always is?) Set in a post-apocalyptic world, the main character must choose a lifestyle she will live for the rest of her life."

    "Violent dystopia describing young people fighting to the death and malevolent political powers. The story begins with our heroine at 16 making a momentous choice of her faction. The violence is unrelenting. The picture of humanity is repellant with our heroes and heroines hard to admire. The dominant character trait of each faction (truthfulness, fearless bravery, selflessness, studiousness, etc.) is carried to extremes. At those extremes, the traits become perverted, cruel, and unbalanced. The society certainly seems beyond redemption. There is some romance among the teenagers, but it is of a chaste and innocent variety. Nevertheless, congratulations are due to Ms. Roth for writing such a successful book at such a young age. "

    "I was at my local library over the summer and was browsing for something fun to read. I picked up this book and have been hooked ever since. This is a the first book in the series. Although it is set in the future, I feel l like I can really relate to the characters. Your life and your group is determined by genetics. It is an interesting take on a new concept. It really makes you think about how genetics play in your life. The struggle that the protagonist goes through makes for an interesting read. I highly recommend this book! "

    "This is a most poignant, and time-relevant, piece of fiction which is genuinely at the doorstep of human extinction. Considering the anthropogenic, abrupt, amplification of climate change, the depletion of potable water and the decimation of our environmental biology, by humankind, any viewer of the Netflix series, "3%", will get chills. Sadly, it is not so much a solution to our, ultimate, downfall, but more of a preamble to the inevitable."
