Divergent falls in the middle between Matched (by Ally Condie) and The Hunger Games, only it ventures out into it's own story. I'm comparing it to these books because in Divergent, they have factions and different rules just like the districts in the hunger games, and all three books have some sort of higher power tying to control everyone else. That's pretty much where the similarities end. I actually didn't end up really liking it until about the middle of the book, when things really start picking up and Beatrice/Tris starts turning things around and learns to stick up for herself. One of the main things that kept me reading was the relationship between Tris and Four, just something about it made me want more. I didnt mind most of the characters, but I think some of hem could have had a little more depth to them. I was sad when we lost a few characters, not so sad about others and some I wish hadn't made it but did.

Product Overview

In a future Chicago, 16-year-old Beatrice Prior must choose among five predetermined factions to define her identity for the rest of her life, a decision made more difficult when she discovers that she is an anomaly who does not fit into any one group, and that the society she lives in is not perfect after all.

"Riveting. Roth has taken the standard sci-fi dystopia and transformed it into an action-packed psychological thriller with romance." (top pick)
From the Publisher
Annotation Similar to the dystopian young adult fiction of Suzanne Collins and Scott Westerfeld, this intense story follows the fortunes of almost 16-year-old Beatrice as she grapples with a future imposed on her by society. In Beatrice's world, there are five very different factions, Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Dauntless, and Erudite, each requiring lifetime allegiance to a particular lifestyle. Growing up in Abnegation, Beatrice is sick of self-denial, and when the time comes to decide on her chosen faction, she shocks her family and herself. However, she harbors a deadly secret that threatens the very fabric of her world. The author was in college when she wrote DIVERGENT.
