MareReviews: Divergent

Jer and I managed to sneak away to the movies this weekend and saw the new movie Divergent.  To be totally honest, I read the book by Veronica Roth and wasn't too thrilled with it.  I thought it was fine, but I wasn't interested in running out to buy the other two in the trilogy.  In hindsight, I think I read it too soon after the Hunger Games series and they have a similar feel to them.  
After seeing the movie, I totally want to read the other two books! (Anyone want to lend them to me?)  This is one of the most original, gripping and thrilling flicks I've seen in a long time. I cried multiple times and also realized I was holding my breath a few times too!  Jer actually leaned over and asked me if I was ok at one point!  I've only seen Shailene Woodley in The Descendants, but she was phenomenal as the lead in this.
I think the Divergent books are considered Teen Fiction, but don't let that fool you.  This movie is entertaining for adults too!
