Reviews

Praise for DIVERGENT: "The next big thing." (Rolling Stone ) "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." (PerezHilton.com ) "A taut and shiveringly exciting read! Tris is exactly the sort of unflinching and fierce heroine I love. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough." Melissa Marr, bestselling author of Wicked Lovely "DIVERGENT is a captivating, fascinating book that kept me in constant suspense and was never short on surprises. It will be a long time before I quit thinking about this haunting vision of the future." James Dashner, author of 'The Maze Runner' "Divergent holds its own in the [dystopian] genre, with brisk pacing, lavish flights of imagination and writing that occasionally startles with fine detail." New York Times

Author description

Veronica Roth graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in creative writing. While she was a student, she often chose to work on the story that would become 'Divergent' instead of doing her homework. It was indeed a transforming choice. Now a full-time writer, Ms Roth lives near Chicago. Her first novel, 'Divergent', was published by HarperCollins Children's Books in 2011 and the sequel 'Insurgent' was published in 2012.
