    I really liked the first book and struggled to get through the second and I was so pissed at how they butchered the first book in the first movie that I never made it any further...

    They should have made the ending something like “well city x did poorly, let’s restart with city y and make an adjustment” that way we would have a satisfying ending. It’s disappointing and shows nothing our characters did matters but it’s satisfying because there are no more loose ends. It’s one of those things were you live the movie and even though the ending is sad or unsatisfying (like Infinity War or even arguably Endgame) it is still a good ending. Make it a tragic ending that way you don’t have to worry about squeezing another movie in there but if this movie does well you can.

    I have to read this book for school and I just want to say this where people can hear me: The relationship between Four and Tris is unhealthy, a big part of it being the power dynamic and the fact that Four is an 18 y/o kissing a minor and stuff.

    OMG am I the only one who actually loved the book series!? Even more than the hunger games. I feel so attacked when Dylan keeps on roasting the series😂 TBH I loved the first two books but last one felt a little underwhelming cause the outsiders watching them felt a bit too much info in such a small time

    This book could be written by those "RPG makers" you simply choose names and some aspects of the lore, and the software just crumble them all in a standard narrative like those you see in a bunch of games these days. Honestly, if books, and movies, were dependent on quality, half of the authors and directors would not make anything anymore. That applies to music, to software, to politics. And young people seem fond of those things all over the globe. While old people use this to put marketable incapable people in proeminence because they then will depend on their money and power to keep that position, as they cant compete by themselves with their ability. That is why musicians of today cant sing or play instruments, actors cant act, writers cant write, and movies are mostly the same just changing shapes and names. I guess it is "the future" we built last 20 years.

    Not related, but the best YA book I read was a romance and each chapter was a different perspective. The main protagonist, the main love interest, and I think the guy who liked the main protagonist. It’ll never got a movie, but I’m glad about it.

    Another thing that bothered me, and maybe this was already addressed in the book but it's been a while, was that the mind control serum was only supposed to have an effect on dauntless right? And that's why it didn't work on divergents. But what about other types of people who didn't get dauntless or divergent in the test but chose dauntless anyway? Why wouldn't they be immune? And if it DOES work on them qnd only doesn't work on divergents, why not just brainwash the sefless faction into handing over control without murder?? ???? ?

    I don't think my girlfriend and I will forget about the existence of Divergent. We like watching shitty movies like this or 50 Shades to make fun of them. There's a line in the third movie that we quote all the time. We watched the Spanish dub, so this is probably different in the original voices, but after they escape the city, Four says "Come on, it's this way". How do you know the way? It makes no sense and we found it very funny.

    Everything I've read and watched in the divergent series is almost the hunger games to the t. Cuz like its a teen girl who saves a dystopia world. While they have factions everything is just hunger games. I'm not saying these books copied buuuuut

  45. Kavik 28

    Kavik 288 days ago

    Another reason why it failed is that the market was flooded suddenly with movies that based off of a book series...3 large movies...The Hunger Games, Divergent, and the Maze Runner. By the time Divergent should have been filming the 4th movie, the general public was moving on to new movies. And the Maze runner had to stall production of it's last movie since the lead actor broke a bone. People were simply ready to move on....

    i only remember two things about the books: in the first book, there are three separate times where she's going to shoot someone, changes her mind and shoots them in the foot (to not kill them i guess) and twice were with the same person. in the third book there was a thing dripping water onto a big stone slab as a metaphor for uhhh something. it was cool imagery but since i dont know what it represented it kinda fell flat

  49. Celia Nunn

    Celia Nunn8 days ago

    What I thought was interesting was 1) each faction is the extreme of each. They actually have drugs that force people to do the extremes, for example for the truth one you cant even tell white lies, you have to be brutally honest and are basically subjects to truth serum. Same with the others. 2) THEY KILL THE MAIN CHARACTER. But this is only from the books. Never seen the movies. Most of the time, movies adaptations of books aren't as good as the books in my opinion.

    I wrote the following like 5yrs ago but it seems appropriate still: "I know this is old but damn it I have to vent too. I felt like the first two books told a story that was in progress already when the book begins. The story was then ended in an ambiguous way with the overall story continuing without us watching. In short, we got a glimpse of life here and that was it. Is it satisfying? Not really. But I would've rather had an ambiguous ending than the garbage that was the third book. I honestly believe that the author wrote a long story that was split into two books and someone somewhere said "We're gonna need a third book. The trilogy is where the money is." So she pumped out a FUCK YOU final book that she didn't want to write in the first place. Otherwise how does she just disregard every characterization that she stuck with so well the entire first 2/3? UGH. Fuck Allegiant."

It has been almost seven years since then and I don't feel curious about this series end to this day.

    the way i hyper fixated on this series back in 2016 and couldn’t tell you a thing abt it anymore/what made it so interesting bc it was so so bland. i’d be able to reread or watch for the nostalgia but it’s such a bad series and that ending was just... so anticlimactic. like don’t get me wrong my favourite piece of media rn killed the mcs off at the end but after a lot of development/foreshadowing and it made sense with the plot. divergent was like here’s a bland teen girl chucked into this world and made to deal with stuff she shouldn’t have to. we’re gonna kill her just bc it’ll make conversation and create controversy not bc it means anything.
