  1. What kind of ridiculous messOh man.So I know I say this in dissenting opinion, as many on my friends list are partial to this book, but I could not stand it So before I go off on my tirade, I must explain You may be thinking to yourself why I gave it two stars and not one, if I m complaining so much Let me explain that two is pretty low on my scale Two is why did I buy this Or read this Or whatever One star is dramatic One is this should not have been written, which I have given out as you may k [...]

  2. Heh I m torn now I eyerolled so much while reading this book that I may have permanently damaged at least some of my cranial nerves And yet I read it in one sitting, annoyingly and inexplicably entertained Go figure.There just may have been some facepalming as well.It s yet another young adult dystopia based on a stupid premise Seriously, it s plainly ridiculous If I had to compare it to something equally ridiculous it d have to be the notion of sparkly vampires I m not kidding Just listen to th [...]

  3. As seen on The ReadventurerWe all know why Divergent was written There is no doubt 99% of dystopias published during the last year or so have been trying to at least partially replicate the success of the trilogy Public wants to read dystopian stories, publishers want to sell them, authors want to write them Everyone is happy I have read a few new dystopias recently and liked or disliked them to various degrees There are dystopias for any taste, dystopias that emphasize separate aspects of the [...]

Dear Hunger Games,I miss you I really do Our relationship is over and done with but the memory of you still lingers on I know that s a terrible clich and you hate clich s but it s a true one, at least in this case I don t think I ll ever be over you You are fucking special.It took me some time, but I finally met a new girl Her name is Divergent She s quiet and strong and short tempered and insular and brave a lot like you, I suppose But is she really This is hard for me to admit but I think I wa [...]

  6. Today I almost attacked a man in public A man who was yelling at and abusing his partner Kicking the trolley, shoving her and screaming obscenities at her I ditched the trolley I d been pushing and stormed toward them, my mind blank of anything but ruthless fury.The next part was like out of some stupid romance novel Mr Kennedy pulled back on my arm and said, No There is no way you re going over there He took off the baby sling, handed it to me and sent me to go put the groceries and baby in the [...]

  7. i need to make something perfectly clear i am well aware that i gave 4 stars to Daughter of Smoke and Bone and i am giving 5 stars to this one the world is a tough and inconsistent spherecause Daughter of Smoke and Bone is a much much better written book it s no contest she is lush and lyrical and there is a gravity to her writing that makes you stop every so often to murmer well said, laini taylor, well said this book is just fun.fun fun fun fun fun fun fun funthis is unexpected pillowfight, ma [...]

  8. I definitely enjoyed it At first, I had trouble convincing my older son to read it, because he was convinced that every dystopian novel is a Hunger Games wannabe, but he read it on a recent plane trip and we had a great in depth discussion about the characters and their motivations.The premise Chicago of the future is a closed city state The citizenry really doesn t have any idea what is beyond their borders They just know it s dangerous Inside the city, humanity is divided into five factions ba [...]

  10. Okay, okay, I completely understand why people could really like this and also why people could find it a huge disappointment As for the latter well, this was one of the most highly anticipated works of dystopian fiction to be released this year and the fact of the matter is that it just really doesn t work as a dystopia Or, at least, what seems to be the general definition of a dystopia.I can highlight the problem really well by referring to a conversation I had with my mum when she saw the boo [...]

  11. 3.5 stars Any book that arrives heavily hyped usually has a ton of marketing power behind it Sure, there are critical reviews to consider, but these days consumers are aware than ever of the dollars at stake behind book and film negotiations Which means that there s a lot of pressure riding on any book to live up to its promise, particularly one that comes from a 23 year old author who has already landed a 3 book deal and signed away the movie rights.After so many big dollar and wearisome proje [...]

  12. Okay, so the movie came out on disk, and I was surfing one of my favorite channels on YouTube, when I found this video by CinemaSins It s a fun and irreverent bit of criticism Enjoy Since I managed to get 100 likes before the movie came out, I will be reviewing Insurgent and Allegiant in the future It may be a while though Life is a bit in the way.Okay, time to get serious I wish I could be funny like my Mortal Instrument reviews, but my intellectual has kicked in because this book manages to be [...]

  13. I m going to do something that I have never done before I m going to rate this book lower than every single one of my friends Do you know why Because I hated the CRAP out of this book Now what follows might offend some lovers of this book To Divergent fans I m sorry I m going to rip on one of your favorite books But honestly I almost wish I had this in paperback form so I could get the satisfaction of throwing it in the garbage With gusto Or maybe the fireplaceLet me start with the world buildin [...]

  14. Whoa.Breathe, Stephanie Breathe.This.Was.Good It seems like every dystopian book that comes out now is being compared to The Hunger Games Well, if there was ever a book that might come close to that comparison it would be Enclave and now Divergent.Veronica Roth s debut novel Divergent is getting some major hype and you know what I think it deserves it It s no secret that I have a dystopian society book addiction right now, but Divergent is just what I love in a book It had loads of action, stron [...]

  16. Everything that rises must Diverge.Or that seems to be the philosophy of this book Divergent poses that as a society progresses, it becomes segregated, as opposed to integrated Likely NO Fun HELL YES.Does it smell like Hunger Games in here to you Check out the video for this Hunger Games parody at the end of the article Part Two of The Best YouTube Book Trailers.Imagine a culture where everyone is separated into groups based on their one key defining character trait.One of these five traits Ho [...]

  17. This book s sobriquet should be the comeback kid because its final rating of 3 solid stars required it to overcome a seriously frustrating first half that had me ready to do great violence to it Before I expound on the redemptive, grace face rating saving virtues of second half of the book, I need to rant vent a bit regarding what turned my hackles all red and puffy THE SIN I am a SF dystopian connoisseur and I love a well conceptualized world in the shitter set up I am happy if the author wants [...]

  18. I read this book before actually watching the film, and I m going to be honest and say that I prefer the book I ve said before that I don t like to read a lot of Dystopian books, but I made an exception on this book because it was coming up a lot on my Homepage, and I was surprised with how much I enjoyed it Sixteen year old Tris Prior lives in a futuristic world in which society is divided into factions When each person enters adulthood, he or she must choose a faction and stay in it for life T [...]

  19. 12 6 11 I can t believe this book was Favorite Book of 2011 I must not be part of the in crowd Oh well.Review belowI have questions Once my questions are answered, maybe I ll move my overall ratings up from 2.5 stars to 3.5 stars Here is the thing, If the world doesn t make sense to me, I m not going to enjoy the book as much as I could enjoy it.So, here are my questions Why, at the beginning, can Beatrice look in the mirror ONLY when her mom cuts her hair What does her mom cutting her hair have [...]

When I was finished this book I could only think of three things Uwe Boll, Asylum Films, and the Sy fy Channel Yes, to me, it was that bad It has everything that they like Cold leader who excels at everything, even when she doesn t try Violence and gore at every turn Oppressive society Tattoos Injuries that come and go as they please Etc, etc, etc.Hmmm, where to start To start To start Haha, ring a bell It does It does It does I am brave I am Dauntless Ok, I ll get serious now Simply put, I did [...]

  23. This book is just not for me I should not have borrowed this I should have ignored this book even if this is this month s read for our book club I have no intention of attracting attention by disliking this popular book I am just being honest to myself.Please allow me to explain 1 Late last year, I read and liked Suzanne Collin s The Hunger Games I don t read lots of dystopian and I thought I read it even before I read William Golding s Lord of the Flies So, the idea of kids or young adults kill [...]

  25. A book with its ups and downsLLERCOASTER OR FERRIS WHEEL Politeness is deception in pretty packaging.This novel was a rollercoaster for me Maybe it should be a ferris wheel pun intended but no, it was a rollercoaster since at some moments I was quite high, real excited about the story, but at some moments I was way down, getting into my nerves.It wasn t easy to rate the book, since I liked the general story in the novel, but I really liked several unexpected twists in key moments of it.So, it wa [...]

  26. Veronica Roth started writing Divergent in college, and was quickly signed up by agent Joanna Stampfel Volpe The book rose to success at an unusually enthusiastic pace, with a 200,000 copy first run by HarperCollins , and a huge online promotional campaign The campaign is what interested me the most upon the book s release Part of the promotional campaign included a Facebook campaign where you could discover your faction , and to me this is a huge reason as to why the book was so successful, cer [...]
