Resenha crítica em inglês - Divergent (exercícios)


Divergent by Veronica Roth - review
Tuesday 15 July 2014 15.00 BST

Divergent is about a girl called Tris. She lives in a world which has a divided society. Tris doesn't fit in to any of the societies, she is different. She is forced to live a life she doesn't want. She wants to find where she belongs, so she leaves her family behind and ventures out alone. However, she finds herself in a brutal new life where she can trust nobody. 
The book is very intriguing from the very start to the end. Many people say it is just like The Hunger Games, but I have read and enjoyed both books and I can tell you they are very different. 
I would recommend this book to people who enjoy adventure books and love books like The Hunger Games.
