“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies... The man who never reads lives only one.” - George R. R. Martin "A Dance With Dragons"
I currently stand at exactly 217 pages in, after starting last night.
The book's plot is at the frustration stage: Tris and Tobias' relationship seems to be going all down hill because they are keeping the truth from one another and the Erudite have huge plans that may involve an endless simulation.
A few interesting points that I have noticed so far in my reading endeavours:
Hopefully this will all be revealed, AFTER I finish that blasted essay.
So this morning I finished reading the first book, Divergent, in Veronica Roth's trilogy.
Needless to say I absolutely loved it and could not put it down despite the fact that I have a 2000 word essay on Italian Jews in the Holocaust due.
I wanted to point out a couple of different things the book told me that the movie failed to do or in some instances achieved better. So brace yourselves for some spoilers!
I am not done with this little post yet, and I will continue to add more as I remember it. For now it is off to write an essay on the Holocaust.
So, I recently seen 'Divergent' at the cinemas. Now, I have not read any of the books but after seeing the movie, they are on the top of my "to read books".
I just wanted to make note of a couple of points, because I have never not seen a movie and then read the books, it is always the book first, then criticise the movie profusely.
So I will dot point what I believe the book addresses in depth that the movie did not. This is complete guesswork and I want to look back on this and see what I did pick up on, even though I have not read the book.
