Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
This story hooked me early on. The characters were interesting and psychotic. I was never really able to figure out which direction the story would go or how it would end so I had to keep reading. I enjoyed the story and I think it will make a great movie.
What I didn't like... When did authors decide that in order to have a good book it has to be full of sex and swearing? In my opinion there is NEVER a need to use the C-word. It's ugly and offensive. The constant use of swearing throughout the book really took away from what could have been a fun experience. Like I said... good story, well written... but I have to give this book 3 stars out of 5. Actually make that 2... NEVER use the C-word. Hopefully they'll leave that out when they make the movie.
Divergent by Veronica Roth
I REALLY enjoyed this book. An easy read that made me ask questions of myself. What faction would I fit in with? What do I value above all else? And in all of it I found a little bit of truth about our world. I enjoyed the characters and the relationships. The quiet strength displayed by many.
I don't really have a lot to say about this book other than I'm glad I read it. It was nice to escape into a made up world and follow the characters. I'm on the wait list for book 2 at the library and I look forward to seeing this movie! If you liked Hunger Games you will like Divergent!
