message 1: by Melanie, In the middle of writing book 3... (new) - rated it 3 stars

I feel like I'm the only person who doesn't LOVE this book. I'm in more of an "it was OK, but not worth the hype" kind-of-place.

I have no team because I found the faction thing a bit hard to swallow - and so now, as everyone else gets their faction blog buttons I'm left Factionless, sweeping the roads and driving the buses for the crazy people who jump on the top of them.

Is there something wrong with me? Did I miss something obvious that makes this book awesome?

I haven't yet read it but the hype has been huge


Terri ♥ (aka Mrs. Christian Grey) (mybookboyfriend) | 3 comments LOL, Melanie. There are the factionless. Read Insurgent and everything will be explained.


Kele (kele_xo) | 2 comments I haven't read Divergent yet, but I'm planning to!


Christi (-_-Lola-_-) | 32 comments I loved this book. (Want to read Insurgent but my English teacher is loaning it to another kid!). I am so Dauntless. It just seemed like a cool faction. Although I hate their initiation. It was rude. XD


Lucy *Qhuay's shellan* I have not read Divergent so I can't say but if it is like The Hunger Games I won't like it.

I just finished this and loved it! I went straight into town to get the second but my book shop didn't have it so I resisted the urge to throw a tantrum and just ordered it online.

I love the idea of you throwing an actual tantrum in the bookshop

"Erm, security - yes - we've another one in the YA section going crazy...not sure what - probably wants more Twilight..."

lol

Haha they do probably get it a lot! If anything I would be defacing Twilight


Regina Simasko | 1 comments I've read both Divergent and Insurgent. I couldn't put them down. To me, they are very good books, and i love the concept. Although,I have not heard any hype about these books. I just came across it one day searching for a new book to read. None of my friends knew what is was either.

This made me laugh, love it!

I've just received Divergent from Amazon and am fighting the urge to read it right this second. A group I'm in will be starting to read it on the 23rd, I'm not sure I can wait 10 more days to see what all the fuss is about... *bites fingers in anxiousness*

I didn't care too much for The Hunger Games either but I really liked both Divergent and Insurgent.

Tima (tsunanisaurus) I just finished Divergent last night and am debating ordering Insurgent now or waiting a little while. I liked Divergent (I think, still processing!). :D

Ok, I'm thinking a re-read is order, or maybe I'll try insurgent first, see if I get the bug. I love Hunger Games, esp. Katniss and think maybe I didn't like the heroine in this so much... Hmmmm decisions :)
