Divergent (Divergent, #1)Divergent by Veronica Roth
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I guess I should not be comparing this book with Hunger Games, but I can't help myself. Both books have a female character who appear to have great strength and endurance, and exhibit such bravery that it's mind boggling, but...I fell in love with Katnis, but never felt the same connection with Tris.  Both books take place in the future, in a dystopian world, but it seems that Tris' world is not as cruel, there is a government, and most people are taken care of. Don't get me wrong, Divergent is a good story, and it did keep me reading to the end. In Tris' world, at the age of sixteen you take a series of tests, and are placed in your community. There are a few exceptions, where you don't exactly fit, and you are considered Divergent, which can be dangerous. There is a love interest, and the training seems to go on and on, but the real action doesn't start until the last few chapters in the book. I'm not sure if I will read the next book in the series. We'll see.
