    An okay book.
    I received this book for Christmas and was eager to start reading, I had seen the movie trailer and wanted to read the book before the movie comes out in March. Since I am a huge fan of The Hunger Games trilogy I thought this book would be perfect for me since the books seemed so similar I was all prepared for this book to became the type of book that I would stay up late reading because I couldn't wait to find out what happened like I was while I was reading the Hunger Games. However, Divergent let me down a little. I found the first 17 chapters chapters boring, I was about to stop reading at chapter two but decided to finish the book before passing judgement. The book doesn't get interesting until chapter 20 and up and at least for me was very confusing in the beginning. I also found Beatrice A.KA Tris to be a character that was hard to relate to sometimes and like she was missing something. I know Divergent is supposed to be set in the future but it seemed be lacking some of the realistic elements and descriptive words the Hunger Games had that connect it to the present day and pull the reader in to the point where they don't want to stop reading. With The Hunger Games you feel like you're in the book experiencing the emotions and seeing the same things for the first along with the characters. With Divergent It feels like you are just reading a book. The plot could have been developed more and a pronunciation guide showing you how to pronounce the faction names in the book would have been helpful.
    One of the things I liked about the book was the relationship between Tris and Four and getting to learn about his past as well as the past of Beatrice's mother.
    All in all I liked this book but I still think the Hunger Games is far better. In my opinion it is a smart idea to borrow Divergent from the Library or a friend instead of spending money on it.
