There’s been a lot of hype and expectations for Divergent, which we at TGD have been calling Hunger Games Lite. At least that’s what it looks like to us, although teen dystopia stories are very popular these days, and the book was a big hit with young adults.
In the wake of The Hunger Games, dystopia is the hot new thing in Young Adult novels. At least we’re not suffering through pseudo vampires anymore, right? Divergent is the latest YA novel that’s become popular in the wake of The Hunger Games, and the movie version is coming on March 20, 2014 with Shailene Woodley.
