    I loved it. Reminds me heavily of Harry Potter.

    Did you guys know Veronica Roth is a huge Potter fan? You should read her essays in the back of the book. She said she could never write an essay without bringing up Potter!!

  • Finished it last week. Overall, a poorly written book where everything is unidimensional and taken to extremes. Not a huge fan of Manichaeism. Oh. Also, Beatrice is one of the most annoying characters that I followed through a dystopia. Not picking up the next book.

    @darthledger essays???? where?

    Theres only those neat writings in the back of the paperback I bought, same with Insurgent... The one in the back of the book is called 'Character Death'

    http://www.divergentlexicon.com/news/the-search-for-four-is-narrowing-down-according-to-reports


    The hunt for our Four is beginning to narrow down according to reports from Variety. Lucas Till, Alex Pettyfer, and Jeremy Irvine are reportedly in the running to play the coveted role of Tobias “Four” Eaton.


    I love Jeremy Irvine xD but I'm kinda hoping he'd audition as Will Herondale if ever they're turning Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare into a film :D

  • WHAT Kate Winslet in Divergent?? What did the Cast Director do to convince her to act in a huge production based of a series? :O She always denied roles in these type of movies.

    I love Kate :\">
  • chesterchester Posts: 4,331 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Kate Winslet is one of the best actresses of her age, she was around 18 when she did Titanic and even then she managed to bring a full audience to tears. That's what i cal a powerhouse.

    I'm not familiar with this series, but now that Kate Winslet might be involved I'm intrigued.

    Maybe they'll announce it in a few weeks.I don't think they've decided on a title yet.It might be 'Convergent'? anything with the suffix -gent i guess HAHA

  • mattStrelowmattStrelow Posts: 3,183 ✭✭✭✭✭
    She's now confirmed, indeed.

    Rick, I don't know why you hated the first one so much but I can guarantee that the second one is way better

    Kate Winslet will play Jeanine Matthews, the leader of the Erudite faction. While Theo James will play Four.

    I didn't expect Theo James to play as Four! Bet a lot would be disappointed! I'm trying to get used to the idea of him as Four. I've seen him in Underworld, Downton Abbey and The Inbetweeners movie :D

    Aaron Eckhert would be joining the cast as well!

    Apparently Aaron Eckhart is soon to be confirmed as Tris' father.

    The casting so far has been very interesting, Summit must be spending a lot with this movie, at least $100 million.

    I don't want to be an ass, but I thought Divergent was so unremarkable, that I forgot almost every character. I have no idea who those are anymore hahahaha

    I really liked the book and still had a hard time connecting the names to the characters... =/
    The casting for the supporting characters has been absolutely ridiculous, the actors don't resemble even remotely the descriptions for the people. Al, for example, was supposed to be big and fat.
    I think they're changing the initiation date from 16 to 18, because they've been casting way too old actors for the roles.

    I read the book over a year ago, and i just barely remember Al and will. Who's Edward? I like the casting though

    'Divergent' author Veronica Roth reveals the title of the final book in the series.

    Allegiant! That's the title of the conclusion to Veronica Roth's best-selling Divergent trilogy, Roth announces in this video.

    The young adult series stars teenage Tris Prior and is set in dystopian Chicago. In Allegiant, which goes on sale Oct. 22 from HarperCollins, Tris faces impossible choices about where her loyalties lie and how she will live in the world beyond the walls of her dystopian Chicago.

    The first book in the series, Divergent (2011), peaked at No. 31 on USA TODAY's Best-Selling books list and the second, Insurgent (2012), reached No. 10.

    About the new title, "You gotta have the -ent (ending),'" Roth, 24, told USA TODAY's Brian Truitt when he interviewed her about Insurgent last year. Roth has jokingly been referring to Divergent book No. 3 on her blog with the title Detergent. The Divergent trilogy was purchased when Roth was still in college at Northwestern.

    Fans will soon be able to show their allegiance at the box office. The Divergent movie started filming in Chicago in this month and stars Shailene Woodley (The Descendants) and Kate Winslet. It's directed by Neil Burger and will be released by Summit Entertainment (Twilight).

    So, Divergent fans, what do you think?

    Can someone update the original post with the image, title and the short synopsis?
