As the title says, I read Veronica Roth’s Divergent (only the first book) in November (when I was not writing)
I usually prefer books before movies, but this one I happened to see the movie first. I had heard about the trilogy before and had read an article about the ending of the trilogy and about the author justifying that ending (yes, I know the ending even though I have not read it, but no ,more spoilers here please).
I watched the movie on a gigantic plane on my way to India. Twice. Because I liked it. Then I decided to get my hands on the book and more or less gobbled it up whole. 🙂
I like the idea of the factions, the world seems quite well thought out, the words are simple, it’s a quick read, it’s YA, and I like the heroine – even though the movie gave me a quite skewed look on what she look like. I like the dystopian future books (sadly I suck at writing dystopian futures, but I would very much like to write one some day).
Apparently the Divergent trilogy has been compared to the Hunger Games trilogy, and I happened to come across the following article comparing the words of the most popular YA authors of today:
This is the article before the above one, I recommend reading it too:
