Since starting school, much of my reading is comprised of library-related topics. Nevertheless, I have still found time to fall utterly and completely in love with a new series.
Nicholas Sparks could write a novel about my relationship with Divergent by Veronica Roth. It is all I can think about. I vacillate between wanting to devour it and wanting to stretch it out as long as possible. I finished Divergent, the first in the series, last week, and I am about three-quarters of the way through Insurgent. I think Roth is incredible at capturing tension in climactic events. Tris is a strong female character, but she’s also incredibly believable.
I love a good dystopian novel, and Divergent does not disappoint. It has received a lot of comparisons to Hunger Games for good reason, but I find the writing to be much stronger.
