Oh man. So I know I say this in dissenting opinion, as many on my friends list are partial to this book, but I could not stand it.
So before I go off on my tirade, I must explain. You may be thinking to yourself why I gave it two stars and not one, if Im complaining so much. Let me explain that two is pretty low on my scale. Two is why did I buy this. Or read this. Or whatever. One star is dramatic. One is this should not have been written, which I have given out as What kind of ridiculous mess Roth has an interesting concept.
It had potential. I felt like I could feel what the author was thinking. Lol who needs to do that to write a book? No I know how to write a book, okay. You know what was a good book? The Hunger Games. Small petite girl, check. Dystopia, check. Living in an underground compound, check.
Lessons about bravery and self-sacrifice, check. Small girl trains with other people who are jealous of her success, check. Kills people, check. Jumping on a moving train. What else is cool? Jumping off a roof. Oh yea that sounds cool.
I gotta think of more cool things, hold on. Okay publishing time. The whole thing is rushed and just…completely nonsensical and full of trope after trope. So what is supposed to be super awesomely cool people just, to me, looked like a band of idiots. Wigs, did you like anything about the book though? Yes I did. She must have written those on a good night.
I feel like they kind of dropped all of the other outside nonsense and kind of focused on just human things. I enjoyed this particular one where Four was under a blue spotlight in a dark hallway it she described how his eyes were black and shadowed while the rest of his face eerily lit or something like that. Just here and there were some bits of description I liked.
Jeez this is starting to turn into Divergent: The Review, a novel by Wigs. But oh well. You can stop at any time. Not yet. I have to get this out of my head. And hey, if in book 2 she fixes some of these issues and answers some of the questions, great. I can believe that. I can believe that a dystopian society would force you into choosing a limited amount of careers based on what you excel in. My issue is that this society is completely dysfunctional. A dystopian is scary for us, because ideally, it is supposed to be believable.
We can believe The Hunger Games is possible because people would totally watch a reality show where people fight to the death. In the case of Divergent, my issue is that this society is unbelievable. Everything is very homogenized and simplified thusly into these factions and these careers using the information given to us : Abnegation selfless people : healthcare, politics Dauntless brave people : guards, police Erudite knowledgeable people : research, reporting and one would guess teaching?
Amity friendly people : farming Candor honest people : lawyers, and…? Okay so seriously what does Candor even do? They seem pointless. Anything I can think of that might go with them is really better suited to Erudite. And wait a minute. Healthcare is given to Abnegation? Wait really? Or what, is it like homeopathic healthcare?
How helpful. Putting one group in all the power. Lack of representation in government? Construction workers, bus drivers, gasp, the horror. The villain wants to get rid of them. Oh yes. Okay, we need to talk about the train for a second.
Is with. The Train. Why is this train an asshole? Oops, you failed. Learn to live. Why is everyone like just ignore it guys, just ignore it. Or otherwise the steepest track change in the world, haha. They had perfectly good empty buildings to refurbish, and instead they spend however many millions of dollars digging a bigass hole in the middle of the city just so people can enjoy some nice sunlight-deprived living. Or maybe she just wanted to copy Mockingjay, that too, of course. And guess what people.
In the future, the trains stop for no bitch, so watch out. One thinks that a dystopian society would care about their military. Especially considering that in this case, their entire city is surrounded by a guarded fence with barbed wire. Clearly protection is important to them. So whyyyyyyy are the Dauntless, the only source of soldiers, completely undisciplined jackasses?
They party it up and dress up like punks from 70s London and …. We already had this ready too, for whatever reason. Why does Tris have special snowflake syndrome? Which is dangerous etc whatever. And I can buy that, I can, that a dystopian society would want to suppress an individual which has too many skills or whatever butttttt… how is it that SO few people actually have multiple skills. Why is that allowed, since it encourages them to learn more skills? And if they want to discourage people having multiple functions, why the hell are people allowed to change factions at all?
And because of this, I see how sad the wasted potential is. But no, no, Tris has a special brain. No one can get into her mind. Just like Bella Swan. Speaking of which, with Tris, who is supposed to be divergent for Abnegation and Dauntless, I can barely find any selflessness traits outside of a what any regular person would do.
I found her, in fact, written incredibly selfish, as teenagers are. Basically it comes down to this. Eye-rolling was induced many a time.
