Divergent Movie Review and GIVEAWAY

This will be quick - I really really enjoyed the movie.  I thought it stuck with the book quite well! You need to understand something though - I'm not a read that mays attention and remembers all these little details and that serves me well when I see movies adapted from books.  I don't tend to notice minor changes! So if you feel it changed a lot from the book - sorry but because of how I read I didn't see it!

Love the image of what Chicago and the areas for each faction looked like.  The place where Dauntless live fit my picture of it best.  And Tris's house actually fit my picture the least! For some reason I kept thinking they lived further out even though it's clear they don't!

Best part - the Dauntless group period! Watching how they ran everywhere - yelled and cheered a lot and just seemed to live like fully made me so want to be Dauntless.  I ignored the punching and danger stuff when thinking that :)

As for the actors chosen to play everyone - well done.  Didn't disagree with any casting.

That's it really.  Liked it - a lot! Even my husband who had never read the book really liked it!

Now a quick giveaway for those who haven't taken the plunge in to Divergent yet.  I have an extra copy of the book.

  1. Maybe I'll check out the movie. I haven't read the book yet. Thanks for the tip.

  2. I really enjoyed the movie as well. I just finished reading the book right before the movie and did notice a lot of differences. Some minor, some not. I still liked the movie though, I felt it was a good adaptation. I'm looking forward to the next one.
