Dystopian stories are enjoying a lot of popularity at the moment, due in no small part to the success of 'The Hunger Games' to which this is therefore bound to be compared. There are similarities. Both are first person narratives by the heroine for a start. Yet I prefer to consider both on their own merits. I certainly don't think that Roth's offering is just 'a pale imitation'- Divergent is it's own story, and a very engaging one. Being active on twitter makes it hard to avoid spoilers, so I had a pretty good idea of some shocks to come at the end of the series, but I'll say no more here. I still want to read them for myself, which for me is a recommendation in itself.
