Although many people compare this book with The Hunger Games, the only similarity I see is that they're both Dystopian novels. IMO, The Hunger Games has a more complex & compelling story, and the characters are clearly defined. With Divergent, the story does pull you in but is still a bit weak. The 4 factions, to me, just don't make sense. People are complex & diverse, there is no way you would be able to divide them into 4 different factions. I did enjoy the book, will definitely pick up the next one. Solid 4 stars.
