I enjoyed the main storylines, but I found that there were too many overall (not to mention characters) to keep track of. And I read all 5 books in about two weeks. I found a lot of the content pretty disturbing. I did recognize a fair amount of the ...more

This middle book is the best of the three. All (or most) of the issues I had with Divergent were fixed, and the writing was better as well. The story was stronger, I liked Tris for Tris rather than liking her because someone else did, and I found her ...more

Eh. (Spoiler alert) The wold within a world did blow my mind, but not in a good way. I understand where the author was coming from, but honestly the world introduced in the first and second books was interesting enough, and the new characters from th ...more

Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez
“Perhaps this is what the stories meant when they called somebody heartsick. Your heart and your stomach and your whole insides felt empty and hollow and aching.”
Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

T.H. White
“She hardly ever thought of him. He had worn a place for himself in some corner of her heart, as a sea shell, always boring against the rock, might do. The making of the place had been her pain. But now the shell was safely in the rock. It was lodged, and ground no longer.”

Emily Dickinson
“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all,

And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.”
Emily Dickinson, The Complete Poems
