The Reading Obsession

Reviews of Fiction Books: Everything from Young Adult Romance to Crime Thrillers

Divergent - Veronica Roth One of my most favorite things as a reader is finding good books. One of my least favorite things as a blogger is finding good books. Why? Because for one star books, I can rant and complain. For five star books, it is impossible for me to find bad things. Or its really difficult.Divergent is one of those books that I can find bad things if I try. But I really like the premise of it. Compared to most of the YA dystopians, this is really good.I like Tris. At first, I thought she would be one of those wimpy heroines that were being "tough". (Running around swooning over stalker guys.) But she actually learned how to fight and wouldn't be pushed around by anyone.I really enjoyed the world building. It seems well thought out.Four is very interesting to read about. Aside from the fact that I don't really think the name "Four" is that sexy or dangerous, Four is a great character. The build up between Tris and Four seems real and not hurried.The writing flowed smoothly. Everything seemed very vivid.The plot moved well. There was actually a high point to the story, unlike so many others.The ending was really good. It wasn't a cliffhanger, thank God, but it left me wanting more.Find this review and more at
