    I loved the hunger games (I was in tears lol) and have quite enjoyed these. Not as much as the Hunger Games but still a good read. I've found them a little predictable in parts but I'm still waiting to get my hands on the third book...

    I love seeing people saying "they're predictable" before reading the third I felt the same

    I found the third Hunger Games book dragged, and was a bit "cluttered" - just not as well written, paced and polished as the other two.

    I loved all three Divergent books [[except for one thing, which I won't discuss until others have confirmed they've read it!!!]]

    I thought the 3rd book was a bit slow, but then it picked up the pace.

    I felt the same way about HG3. It wasn't as good. I've had to turn to Fan Fiction to fill the glaring holes..they do a pretty good job!

    Ok, I'm hooked. Nearly finished book 3. Recommending the books too.

    It is more interesting than Hunger Games, to me, and is more multifaceted in terms of beliefs, lives and government issues.

    Although I rarely debate if I should read, more what time I can make to read!

    I like Evelyn best, as she's so human. Scarily so. She is us at out best and our worst, but never both to one person without a dispassionate view, which the characters cannot have.

    Tris and Tobias are not favourites. They annoy me with the whole relationship/lie/mistrust/love/hate/blame cycle. They are interesting people to have as leads, but their friends are more interesting as characters.

    I also love the eugenics element in book 3, but that could be because dystopian genetics in fiction inspired me to become a geneticist as an adult.

    Just finished the series. Third book drove me nuts. I would love to discuss it, maybe we should start a new no-holds-barred SPOILER SpOILER thread so we thrash it out?

    That's what I really liked about Matched. The idea that they could select our best genetic match and that genetics alone would prove whether a person was a perfect match to someone else.

    We just watched the first movie. When they are on the train at the end DH goes "Are they on their way to District 13?"
