Review: Divergent

Divergent Divergent by Veronica Roth
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I guess I really wanted to like this, because my 12 year old daughter really liked it and wanted me to read it. But therein lies the problem. 12 year old girl vs. 46 year old Stephen King fan. This reminded me far too much of The Hunger Games which I really struggled with, and while there were parts of this book that kept and even increased my interest, in the long run it felt too contrived to hold my interest to the end. I finished it because I don't like not finishing books that I've started, but I have no desire to continue past this book to see what happens in the concluding stories of the series. It is fair to say that my daughter has done so and has enjoyed them all. The right audience feels the strongest about it.
