A lot of books that are great tend to have love triangles, for instance The Hunger Games with Katniss having to decide between Gale or Peeta. It bothered me, but wen I read Divergent I liked it more since I didn't have to choose whether I liked Tobias or some other potential lover of Tris. Do you think not having a love triangle, as a major theme, helped out make the book awesome?


Quinn Cole (olandeo) | 4 comments but there was. It was between Tobias and Four.

Tobias and Four are the same person so Tris didn't have to choose who she wanted since their was a second love interest.

I do like a love triangle (when it's done well), but it was refreshing to have just the one lover.
Plus, I don't think anyone could have rivaled Tobias:)

Other than Eric but he was just so unlikeable. if Tris decided to pursue Eric, then the readers would hate her for it

OMG, Tris and Eric. *shudders* My brain is now traumatized.

I was also worried at one point, when I 1st read Divergent, that Al and Four (his name used at the time) were going to battle it out for Tris' attention. But Al committed suicide so I felt upset (because he died) and happy (because there wasn't going to be a love triangle and I liked Four/Tobias better) at the same time


Macy | 65 comments I know if she did something something like twilight which I loved those books but if Roth did it I wouldn't like it.

Yeah, it would definitely cause the books to be off.

I only ever read the first Twilight book, but it was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than I thought it'd be. I actually like how the author wrote it, and Edward wasn't as nearly stalkerish and creepy as he was in the movie.

Yeah, I hate choosing sides :/ Ugh! A love triangle drives me insane!


message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

I think it drives everyone insane-unless it's written/done right, and that doesn't seem to be the norm:P


Maria | 18 comments I get frustrated with love triangles because I feel like the main character is just indecisive. And Tris is a strong determined main character. She woulnd't be Tris is she was torn between to boys. That's just my opinion :P

I'm just like Tris in many ways, especially this one. Just like her, I know what I want and I will get what I want. I'm not saying in a spoiled way, but a determined work hard type of way. Do you follow what I'm trying to say?


Stacey | 3 comments Idk... i feel like tris and four are going to have a fight in the new book.

Marilyn Anderson (Marilyn344) | 300 comments Mod
But they worked though all their fights in the other books too...


Stacey | 3 comments Yeah they did but i feel like for apart of the third book..they're going to be separate because of a fight but not broken up

Yes, I do. I hope they won't break up in the third book and I also hope that some new character isn't introduced and Tris has to choose between them. The reason I brought that up is because Veronica Roth introduced that there is going to be a new male character in Allegiant.

Yeah supposedly similar to her (Roth's) brother


Owllover | 42 comments Well, her brother-in-law, not technically her brother. Sorry for the technicality there...

Yeah, it's hard to type when you're using a phone and when you're busy too so I shortened it a bit, but you're right.


Owllover | 42 comments I'm on my phone, too. I'm just naturally kind of technical. Sorry!

No no that's fine. It's just I don't use internet like this on my phone so I make things written more choppy.

Apparently they are adding a character to make a love triangke in insurgent. One my friends said they are adding a guy name "edgar" in the Insurgent movie who is supposed to be Tris's other love interest, whether this is true idk but my reaction was: "NO!! WHY WOULD THEY DO THAT TO TOBIAS!!!!
