I have heard overwhelmingly positive reviews about Divergent, and when I heard it was similar to the Hunger Games, I jumped at the chance to read it. After reading it, I can understand how readers feel it resembles the Hunger Games because it is the same genre (dystopian lit) and it involves children fighting (although for entirely different reasons). It also has a strong female protagonist and romance. I get it, but I still think they are two entirely different books. I thoroughly enjoyed the plot of Divergent, and I felt that the character development was strong throughout the story. I fell in love with Four as soon as he was introduced, and continued to love his character through the rest of the book. In fact, he's probably the one I'm most interested in seeing in the following books. I thought the concept was interesting as well, and I was stunned to learn that the author is only 23. I will definitely be looking for her future novels, and I can't wait to get my hands on Insurgent.
