Divergent Premiere - the Book, the Movie and a Chance to Win a Walk on Role in Insurgent

After reading Divergent, by Veronica Roth, Josie and I have been excited to see the movie.  If you have not read it yet, I highly recommend it.  Divergent is the first of 3 books.  I have yet to read the two after it, Insurgent and Allegiant, but will read them soon.  I found Divergent to be a bit Hunger Games-ish, with the same type of dystopian future, but where The Hunger Games has people divided by districts, Divergent has people in factions.  Most of the similarities end there, though.  I love main character, Tris.  She is a strong young woman (I love empowered gals!).  Tris is Divergent, and does not fit into one of the 5 faction categories, which makes her dangerous. 

The movie Divergent premiered for special showings last night, and opens nationwide today, Friday, March 21, 2014.  GP, Josie and I went to the 8:00 showing last night.  

We really enjoyed the movie.  Movies adapted from books always have changes, and I was impressed at how well the movie followed the book.  I am not says it was verbatim, there were changes, but they stayed very true to the original story. 

If you are the reading type, you can get your own Kindle copy of Divergent for $4.99, or even the The Divergent Series Complete Collection that includes #Insurgent and #Allegiant for $14.99.
