>> Having yet to read the book, see any reviews or view any trailers, I did not know what to expect when I went in to see “Divergent.”  Leading up to the theater, the line was out the door, and everyone was there to see the movie. The theatre was packed from top to bottom, and rightfully so.  “Divergent” follows the life of a young girl, Tris, in a futuristic, post-war society. When children in the society come of age, they take a test to see which “faction” they belong to. Each faction carries out a job, and that job helps keep order so that everyone knows his or her place in society.  Tris finds out she is a “divergent,” or someone who tests into more than one faction, and she must keep this a secret, because divergents are seen as a threat. “Divergent” will keep you on the edge of your seat. The only problem I had was a lack of  development of some of the main characters such as Tris’s  family, but these questions may well have been answered in the book.
