it was amazing
bookshelves: 2010
Recommended for: the entire planet

I did not like this book.

I started reading it at about 3pm in the afternoon and finished at about 9:30. When I finished I sat there, stunned. In awe.

It is one of the best Young Adult novels I've ever read. One of the best novels I've ever read, if we're going to go there, too. It was, in a word, flawless.

How can you "like" flawless? How can you "love" it? DIVERGENT is powerful. It is moving. It is extraordinary. My only regret? That the whole world hasn't read it yet, because my need to talk about it is so fierce that I barely want to do anything else.

Nur I know right I LOVE DIVERGENT <3 Its just so extraordinary... When I finished DIVERGENT I was spazzing and I just couldn't wait till INSERGENT, so when I bought Insergent like a year after I read Dıvergent ıt was just amazing all over again... CANT WAIT TILL THE NEXT BOOK AND THE MOVIE :D


ɯɐɔ Well said.


readeraz Great review! I have read all three books and they are incredible! love the series, and love your review!

(btw love your books too, seriously, they are fantastic!)


Brenda how ironic, i always thought there was something very similar in veronica's and michelle's writing style, i mean both authors know how to leave you breathless


Johaleesi (formerly JJiReads) When I started reading I was like "what? she didn't like it!?" but then I kept reading and was like "ohhh got it". Great review. I feel the same way.

Marie Wow Michelle, first to say not Twilight, nor the Mortal Instruments not EVEN Divergent compares to The Unbecoming Series you have created. I haven't read the book version of Divergent yet but I had just seen the movie and loved the whole plot. I'm happy you felt the same way!


Sarah YAY HOW WAS THE MOVIE I AM DYING TO WATCH IT :)

BTW I LOVED THE TWILIGHT SERIES
AND THE UNBECOMING SERIES
BUT I COULDNT GET INTO THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS COZ ITS THIRD PERSON AND I HATE THIRD PERSON


Dennis John I feel for you.


Polly Lodato The movie is AWSOME
