'Riveting... a memorable, unpredictable journey from which it is nearly impossible to turn away.' - Publishers Weekly
'This gritty, paranoid world is built with careful details and intriguing scope. The plot clips along at an addictive pace, with steady jolts of brutal violence and swoony romance. Fans snared by the ratcheting suspense will be unable to resist speculating on their own factional allegiance. Guaranteed to fly off the shelves.' - Kirkus
'With brisk pacing and lavish flights of imagination, Divergent clearly has thrills, but it also movingly explores a more common adolescent anxiety - the painful realisation that coming into one's own sometimes means leaving family behind, both ideologically and physically.' - New York Times
'The next big thing.' - Rolling Stone
'Thrilling' - US Weekly
