Divergent by Veronica Roth
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Read this book because my teenage daughter liked it so much and, well, it's not like we're going to talk about boys and stuff. My son and I can, and do, talk superheroes all day, so I wanted to share something with the girl. I liked it much more than I thought I might. There are moments of insight and innovation that surprised me. I can certainly understand the pull with a younger crowd, especially the fairer sex. The book exploits common middle-American fears because Veronica understands them so well.
In the end, I am not Divergent. I like the book like many, many others.
