Radwa Khattab asked:

I watched the movie - of course - but I never thought about reading the book. just like THG, I think that since there's movies of it that I'm watching, I don't need to read the books. What do you think? Suggestions?

RR The book and the movie have different plot lines, as all
books----------------->movies do. Read the book, it's more interesting than the movie.
Abigail YES read it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nikitha Do not miss reading the book. It is better, because it has more of a bigger and better description than the movie. Also, it gives you that inner feelings of Tris, and you will be able to make a lot out of the story. You can read and visualize the character development and the theme, as well as foreshadowing in the book.
