    Default Divergent+Insurgent, Just Like Hunger Games?

    Hello everyone.
    Today I got the book "Divergent" by Veronica Roth from Amazon.

    I read about 6 chapters, which was just about 42 pages.
    It seems exactly like The Hunger Games. Four areas, govt problems, ect.


    Without spoilers, is this a book just like The Hunger Games?
    I have no problems with that, but I just reread the trilogy and I am not in the mood for that type of book atm.

    Thank you!

    Two of my friends have read both books and I am currently just starting to read Divergent. I'm pretty sure it's the same genre, but very different storylines. The genre being a Dystopian society according to the views of the characters.

    Alright, thanks.

    I know a lot of people that started to read this. I just wanted to because there is a movie coming out and it looked cool, I suppose.

    Just read about a hundred pages today, and it seems EXACTLY like the Hunger Games.
    Great.

    just. great.
    And Shailene Woodley is in the movie. Not that I don't like her, but she seems fake around camera.
    It doesn't seem like she can really get into a role.

    This ends on a good note.

    Considering people aren't forced to fight to the death and there isn't a revolt against the government (As far as I know) I have to disagree.

    Well, considering it is government issues, the government wants to kill the people who stand out, there's a mixed love story in it, and the Dauntless reminds me of THG.
    Even though I wasn't looking for that type of book, I have to say Veronica Roth outdid herself. She wrote an amazing book. I have 100 pages left, and then I will move onto Insurgent, and I guess preorder/order the final book.

    My school library is terrible. Plus, it's in the basement so it's creepy going down there.
    I read a ton during Chemistry and Health today. Man, I hope I don't finish it yet. I got it on Saturday. D:
