But Tris's simulation is inconclusive, she's what's called divergent and urged to keep th...

2/5 - I loved the movie, more than The Hunger Games...God I hope the book isn't a disappointment! To be continued... 3/5 - Sooo NOT a disappointment. Sooo fantastic!! The three other five star books that I've read so far this year pale in comparison, this book deserves the five stars so much more ...

Having acquired all 3 books in the series, I have now read the first which seems to be aimed mainly at a female Young Adult readership. It takes place in a dystopian future in which Chicago has been divided into five Factions to avoid future conflict. At the age of 16, young people are tested and th...

Reading a book like “Divergent” reminds me what I missed out on during my teen years. I don’t mean wishing to live in Roth’s faction society. The majority of my reading as a younger person was garbage. I should give myself more credit, but it is hard not to laugh when I remember all the junk I dev...

Hating the government is big business. Without a government we could hate, a lot of people will be out of job. I’m not just talking about scumbag officials. Imagine what Zack de la Rocha would do without hating the government. No one will listen to his pathetic attempts at rapping and lousy slogans....

This is one of those times when I liked the movie better than the book. Heather K brought up some excellent points. That said, I was able to enjoy the book much more than her, mostly because I've read it without thinking so much. Which is probably because the book and the movie are basically the sam...

They say adolescence is the best time of our lives. "Enjoy it while it lasts," they say. They are lying through their teeth. Adolescence is hell on Earth. Beatrice Prior knows this all too well. Ripped from her home and her support system at 16, that most vulnerable of ages, she must make a c...
