Divergent  - Veronica Roth, Emma Galvin Those who have read my other reviews know I rate more on enjoyment than I do quality of literature. When you are reading for pleasure that is all that counts, for me anyway.

I adored this book. It had me on the edge of my seat. I loved discovering the world, the characters, the tension. It ticked all the boxes I look for in a book. Yes, yes, dystopian fiction is all the rage but actually I have been into it since I was a teenager and first read 'A Brave New World.'

I remember thinking, could 'Divergent' be better than 'The Hunger Games'? (I mean the book, not the trilogy).

I try very hard not to let me feelings about the later books taint my view of this one, as well as the trailer for the film which just looks awful in comparison! I'm sticking with 5 stars for the memory of how I felt when I first read it.
