My favorite series ever is the Divergent series. The action, the romance, and the the danger make this book amazing. This series is a series i would read again and again. The Divergent movie was pretty good. Post your thoughts here. Im interested to see what you have to say about this series

I really liked them, but they are simplistic. They have the same cadence as the Hunger Games books. They're good; but you can read them in a weekend.

I read Divergent and LOVED it!

I am a teacher-librarian in a k-5 school. I purchased some copies for the library and recommended it to some of our grade 4 students. They read it in a weekend and really enjoyed it. Of course I had to buy the other books in the series, which the students continued to get through quickly. They loved them - in fact, so much that they were excited to share what happened in the end of the THIRD book when I was still on Chapter 2 of the second book. Kinda ruined it for me.

As for the movie - it left a lot to be desired but I had to keep reminding myself that it IS a young adult series.

Thank you for sharing. Yeah my friend ruined the end of Allegiant for me too. I was the first to read Four so no one could spoil it for me.

I have only read Divergent due to the fact that my daughter actually told me how the last book ended. So I kinda lost the urge to read the other books. I am a happily ever after person. I did however enjoy Divergent, it was an easy read.

I loved the Divergent series, I liked the world development and the aspect of it all, the only thing that I did not enjoy was the last book. I felt like it really wasn't even needed.

I liked Divergent. The second book kind of nose dived and the third completely crashed. I can't stand endings like that. I need HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY. I know it's not realistic for every story to end well, but I escape to books so I can GET AWAY from the everyday sadness. If I could rewrite that ending I might recommend it a little more.

As much as I loved the series, I felt as if Veronica should've kept the mood slightly less.... depressing. Divergent was overall quite cheery and you expected that from Insurgent and Allegiant, but instead you got something quite different.
I have yet to read Four, but I can't find a copy at my local library.

I enjoyed Divergent but it wasn't my favorite. I enjoyed Hunger Games and the series Matched by Ally Condie better.

I loved the movie so much, I have downloaded the book Divergent to my Kindle for reading in the near future. I am looking forward to the read. If it is anything like or similar to the movie, I'm sure it is going to be a brilliant book.

I thought the series was so intense. I loved it. I basically read the entire series wide eyed in shock. I felt the movie followed the book pretty well, so that pleased me. I'm annoyed by movies that change so many aspects of the original story.
