If You Like Hunger Games & Twilight, Then Get Stoked For Divergent!

Trust us on this – this baby is going to blow up BIG! And if you chose to remain factionless, then you’re gonna be one lonely soul.

With Twilight coming to its conclusion this fall and The Hunger Games just gearing up momentum with its second film, Summit Entertainment is ready to focus on another one of their most buzzed about projects: the film adaptation of Veronica Roth’s novel, Divergent.

It was announced yesterday that the project has already found a scribe in Evan Daugherty and will be making its way to the big screen by March 21, 2014.

But what the hell is Divergent? And why should YOU be excited? Ah, allow us to explain…

We were first introduced to Veronica’s story two years ago when Summit announced they had picked up the option for book. Crack up the pages, and you’ll be transported into a world that is a mix of 1984, The Hunger Games and Inception, to an extent. The story follows a society set many years in the future, after the world is seemingly destroyed by war and greed. It’s a world where children, upon reaching the age of 16, are forced to choose to live in five ideological “factions” of their exceedingly controlled and structured society. The story’s heroine, after choosing to leave a life of selflessness for one of fearlessness, stumbles upon conspiracy and treachery in the politics of her people and young love with a follow citizen who can’t seem to fit fully into one specific “faction”, which finds them both in the dangerous position of being labeled “divergent.”

Dun, dun, dun!!!

Believe us when we tell you that this one is gonna have SUCH a following. It won’t put the Twi-Hards to shame by any means, but in about two years, every tween you know is going to be walking around in cliques, er, factions from the book which include, Candor (the honest), Erudite (the intelligent), Amity (the peaceful), Dauntless (the fearless) and Abnegation (the selfless).

Hmm. That’s a toughy! Which faction would U chose to live in???

    hope it is as good as the books, Interested to see who will be cast as Tris since she isnt suppose to be this pretty girl, very exciting to see how they turn the book into a film though! Can't wait for the third book next fall!

    Omg no! I actually really liked Divergent and Insurgent, and making them into movies is going to ruin them!

    "Unwind" by Neal Shusterman is definitely going to be the next Hunger Games.

    this book is amazing. i am so glad it is finally getting some recognition!!! i think it might even be better than the hunger games (don't kill me!!!) but im wary about how it will translate to the big screen.

    I hope and pray that young adult books with empowering themes like this keep getting published and appreciated until the brain-damaging Twilight series is erased from young people's minds. For the future of my children, I really hope so.

    I loved Divergent and Insurgent, I have my copies next to me. However, I worry how it will transition to film. As another fan pointed out, Tris isn't a Hollywood beauty and Four isn't Hollywood handsome either…

    More than likely, the film will ruin the book for us die-hard fans. But we will still go see it, so complain all you want about how it will ruin the book, you know you will be going to see it anyways!! These books were great, and film adaptations don't necessarily make the book bad, it's still the same!!

    I love two books and can't wait for the third. I'm really curious about a possible movie and look forward to more news about this subject. The books and the writer deserves it!

    This is the worst book I ever laid my eyes on. It was such a huge letdown that I am vehemently protesting anyone saying this piece of crap is worth the read. The plot is hardly there, there's no world building whatsoever and the second book is even worse. I have never hated a book as much as this piece of…

    I actually think the Divergent series of books is better than Hunger Games. But when I see how watered down the first Hunger Games movie was, I certainly hope that the screenwriter is brilliant so that Divergent can be a great film. I have my doubts, though.

    I can't believe you'd mention Twilight in the same sentence as Hunger Games and Divergent. Twilight is poorly written and shallow and isn't even in the same genre as the other two. I can't stand Twilight, but I love Hunger Games and Divergent.

    I cannot believe you just compared this to Twilight. IT'S NOTHING LIKE TWILIGHT. The story is far from it and the writing is so much better.

    i'm sure excited for this i just hope they don't ruin the books.. they are flawless….. also, this is NOT and will never be the next twilight. don't compare them. one is fantasy and the other is dystopia. don't mess with my dystopia
