PostSubject: Divergent Series   Tue Dec 10, 2013 7:43 pm

So, the other day, I am surfing YouTube and I see this trailer called "Divergent".
It really captured my attention so I searched online to see if the movie is based in a book and sure enough, it is!
I am currently reading the 1st in the series.  It's really interesting  reader 

The book


The movie

My hubby & I just went to the new Hunger Games movie last night for my bday, and this was one of the previews....it looks SO good! It said it was a national bestseller, and the first thing I told my hubby was, "I need to read that book!!" Definitely going to get it. Thumbsup

Awesome Amy  Thumbsup 
You will like it! The book I mean... I'm only on chapter 11 and really enjoying it.  I'm sure the movie will be awesome. Ashley Judd, Kate Winslet, Shailene Woodley - all favorite actress of mine!  Smile

Okay I finished reading Divergent! It's so good!  yes 
I already bought the 2nd book in the series and have started that one as well.  
Looks like these books are really getting around! Lots of people are reading it which means sometimes some people will put spoilers and so I'm staying off anything divergent related on the internet so I don't accidentally read anything that will ruin the book for me! LOL

I am now on Insurgent  reader

I haven't read these yet, but I know a lot of people who rave about them. I'm going to pick them up for my daughter, as she loved The Hunger Games series.

 Thumbsup Tell her to stay away from any reviews or places talking about the series because a lot of people have finished them and don't want her to run into spoilers! lol

I checked out Divergent on opening weekend. I LOVED IT!  grinsmiley

The movie stuck close to the book.  I heard it had a great opening and so now Insurgent (the next movie in the series) will be made and released in March 2015.
Can't wait!  Cheer

We went to see it this weekend, too. It was good. My daughter wasn't thrilled with all the characters left out of the first movie, but other than that she loved it.

I started to read Divergent last night. Not that far into it yet but so far I am enjoying it. The beginning reminded me of The Hunger Games, because both Tris and Katniss both faced big changes at age sixteen.

Did you see the movie at all? I thought they really dragged out leading up to the choosing ceremony.
