la_ca_0708_divergent

“Divergent,” the best-selling YA novel, makes its way onto the big screen like so many other YA adaptations before it. The books, though they have their strong points, are very Hunger Games-esque but not quite as good. The first book has some good material for a movie, but those last two books take a sharp turn into suck town. Set in a dystopic future, Divergent focuses on one very special girl, Beatrice Prior, whose divergent mind works differently than everyone else’s, putting her at risk of being snuffed out by a society that embraces labels and control above all else. be Divergent verges into theaters March 21, 2014.

This is the Action Flick Chick, and you’ve just been kicked in the ass!

    I agree with you on the books. Someone at work recommended them for my daughter, and, as I always read stuff before I give it to my kids, I burned through them over a weekend. When I asked the lady at work, “WTF?” on books two and three, she laughed and said, “Oh, yeah, those are awful, don’t read those.”
