Review of Divergent by Veronica Roth

Reblogged from QuinceyBeeReading:
Divergent  - Veronica Roth

I was very adamant to start reading this book because like many of this time it was branded as "the next hunger games"! I mean for Pete's sake why does a series have to be compared to an older series which may vaguely resemble the book. Once I had got over the annoyance of the sticker on the front proclaiming it as the next HG, I quickly devoured the book. In just two sittings I had read the book cover to cover and the first thing I would like to say is , this book is miles away from HG in similarities. Ok we have the whole dystopian thing but that's where the comparisons end. Divergent follows the life of Tris as she lives her life through an action packed troubled and tough life in a world where its fend for you self to stay in your faction. This book had so much action and awesomeness, also one thing I loved about this book was that Tris was not like many female leads in which she requires a male counterpart to stabilise her to change. She decides things for herself and is very much independent which I like in a character. However you do have an obvious love interest in the form of Four. The secret surrounding him I felt was overly obvious even before it was revealed. 
Anyway going on a tangent , I loved this book as much HG maybe even more and I cant wait for the sequel and trequel ( a word I created for the third instalment)
