Title: Inside Divergent: The Initiate’s World
Author: Cecelia Bernard
Okay, so you already know by now that I really really liked Divergent, and that I was pretty much okay with the series.
So I was screwing around on the library website and I saw that this book was available, so I figured what the heck.
*sigh* I really should have quit while I was ahead.
Inside Divergent features full-color photographs on every page and a few boxes of text here and there. It’s designed as a movie companion for a movie that hasn’t come out yet, although all the images are movie stills. As a side note, I have to say that I still don’t know about all the casting choices, so the book pretty much was annoying all the way through.
Even worse, the book is basically a guide to the world of Divergent, and if you’re at the point where you’ve read the books, you’re dying for the movie and you’re grasping at everything you can get your hands on, you’ll be really annoyed that this book spends most of the book telling you what the factions are. If you’re not somebody who has read the books and you’re getting this thinking it’s a movie companion, there are spoilers. For example, Tris’s test results.
So, uh, this book is pretty pointless.
Also, I’m a little confused as to why there is almost no new material whatsoever in this book and Cecelia Bernard – whoever she is – is listed as the author.
I’ll give it a star because it’s pretty, but that’s all it’s getting. 1/5 pages for sure.
