Divergent by Veronica Roth

Given that I may be just about the last reader on the planet to have read Divergent, I was wondering whether anyone would be interested in what I thought about it.

I enjoyed this book much more than I expected to.  It is my first foray into dystopia  which I have always assumed to be a bit like science fiction – an acquired taste.

The plot is a cracking one … never a dull moment.  There is a lot of violence in the book – which means I won't be watching the movie.

The future world is not over explained … You just gather things as the story is developing.  I guess the bottom line is that I have now ordered the next one in the trilogy.

I was surprised to find this was classed as a teen read – given the violence in it – but maybe teen reads are different now from when I was a teenager… when was that again???


  1. I for one am interested in your thoughts on this one. You nailed it. Welcome to dystopia! And yes, teen reads are very different now.

  2. I've had my eye on this for a while...but idk still.


Your comments are most welcome. Cheers
