What kind of ridiculous mess So I know I say this in dissenting opinion, as many on my friends list are partial to this book, but I could not stand it.
So before I go off on my tirade, I must explain. Let me explain that two is pretty low on my scale.
One star is dramatic. Roth has an interesting concept. I felt like I could feel what the author was thinking. Lol who needs to do that to write a book?
No I know how to write a book, okay. You know what was a good book? Small petite girl, check. Living in an underground compound, check.
Lessons about bravery and self-sacrifice, check. Small girl trains with other people who are jealous of her success, check. Jumping on a moving train. What else is cool? Jumping off a roof. Oh yea that sounds cool.
I gotta think of more cool things, hold on. The whole thing is rushed and just…completely nonsensical and full of trope after trope.
So what is supposed to be super awesomely cool people just, to me, looked like a band of idiots. Wigs, did you like anything about the book though?
She must have written those on a good night. I feel like they kind of dropped all of the other outside nonsense and kind of focused on just human things.
I enjoyed this particular one where Four was under a blue spotlight in a dark hallway it she described how his eyes were black and shadowed while the rest of his face eerily lit or something like that.
Just here and there were some bits of description I liked. Jeez this is starting to turn into Divergent: The Review, a novel by Wigs. You can stop at any time. I have to get this out of my head.
And hey, if in book 2 she fixes some of these issues and answers some of the questions, great. I can believe that. I can believe that a dystopian society would force you into choosing a limited amount of careers based on what you excel in. My issue is that this society is completely dysfunctional.
A dystopian is scary for us, because ideally, it is supposed to be believable. We can believe The Hunger Games is possible because people would totally watch a reality show where people fight to the death.
In the case of Divergent, my issue is that this society is unbelievable. Everything is very homogenized and simplified thusly into these factions and these careers using the information given to us: Okay so seriously what does Candor even do?
Anything I can think of that might go with them is really better suited to Erudite. And wait a minute. Healthcare is given to Abnegation? Or what, is it like homeopathic healthcare?Nineteen Eighty-Four, often published as , is a dystopian novel by English author George Orwell published in June The novel is set in the year when most of the world population have become victims of perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance and propaganda..
