Review quote

Praise for DIVERGENT:

"The next big thing." (Rolling Stone )

"If you like Hunger Games & Twilight, then get stoked for DIVERGENT! Trust us on this-this baby is going to blow up BIG! And if you chose to remain factionless, then you're gonna be one lonely soul." (PerezHilton.com )

"A taut and shiveringly exciting read! Tris is exactly the sort of unflinching and fierce heroine I love. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough." Melissa Marr, bestselling author of Wicked Lovely

"DIVERGENT is a captivating, fascinating book that kept me in constant suspense and was never short on surprises. It will be a long time before I quit thinking about this haunting vision of the future." James Dashner, author of 'The Maze Runner'

"Well-written and brilliantly executed, DIVERGENT is a heart-pounding debut that cannot be missed. Tris stands out in her action-packed, thrilling, and emotionally honest journey to determine who she wants to be in a society that demands she conform. It's dystopian fiction at its best!" Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of PARANORMALCY

"A memorable, unpredictable journey from which it is nearly impossible to turn away" - Publishers Weekly

"Divergent holds its own in the [dystopian] genre, with brisk pacing, lavish flights of imagination and writing that occasionally startles with fine detail." - New York Times

" A masterpiece of epic proportions and an outstanding debut novel." - Narratively Speaking Blog

"Be prepared to sit on the edge of your seats as this heart-pounding thriller hypnotises you until the very last page." - Fantasticbookreviews.com

Hellow, Divergent is known as one of the bests YA dystopian books nowadays, although I prefer other genres last week or so I decided to give it a chance since dystopian as been a desire of mine lately. I have to say I was not very much disappointed , although I didn't get a great dystopian book, I still got a very engaging action packed story to delight myself with and well, that was enough for the time being. Why I say that this is no dystopian? Well, although there is a little of world building and it's not bad at all, it didn't have the most important thing a book of this genre must have, a sense of despair. After all we are talking about a dying society on the pick of coming back alive, there was not that political or moral sense to it, the struggle seemed just empty and not enough. The beginning, specially faction wise, it's quite confusing and not very well explained, that being said I say this book lacks a lot of explanations overall. Other than that I must say the action it's perfectly described and that the author has an amazing hand for fight scenes. Although I didn't fell in love with none of the characters on this plot I still had the need of following the story through. It's one of that books that keeps you hanging on, very movie like( maybe that was why Summit signed ). There is not much to say about it, it was not good on the literary spectrum but it was still very fun and enjoyable so , yes , it is a 3.5 starts Regards Yours sincerely, Skeleton Orchidshow more

I honestly couldn't of stopped reading even if I tried. But I didn't try, that's how good this book is. It is in the middle of a well-derserved hype bubble. Definitely a must-read!show more
