Lol, my title makes this sound so formal! XD. When am I ever entirely formal?
So I finished reading Divergent. And I posted a mumble saying that I had and that anyone who was interested should “seriously, brace” themselves. I don't do this often. The last time I had an open rant about anything was about the movie, Grave Encounters, which was so stupidly unscary I was sleeping halfway through it and laughing for the rest. I don't like cutting things down to size. It gets me in trouble. Take it from me: When I have something to say, it's rarely some kind of gratifying acknowledgement.
And to be perfectly Candor [Don't hate. This is what happens when I get into something, even if I don't particularly like it. I mean, who says “pwn” in real life? Me. I say pwn in real life], I don't want to ruin whatever delusion any hardcore fans might be operating under [like how The Big Bang Theory ruined Indiana Jones for me. Fans of Indie, DO NOT look that up. And yeah, I did just paraphrase something Tobias said] because it sucks when your fantastical bubble gets shattered into a trillion-bazillion pieces.
[FANS OF DIVERGENT/VERONICA ROTH: YOU HAVE BEEN CORDIALLY WARNED. BEYOND THIS POINT, IS WHERE REALITY ENTERS YOUR DREAM AND KILLS IT PAINFULLY]
But it doesn't change the fact that it has to be said.
Divergent was the most irritating novel I have read in a LONG time.
Since Twilight, I should think - and I was like 14 then and I'm... let's not discuss how old I am now [Ahlaam knows, go talk to her], the POINT is that I'm extremely disappointed. Additionally, I've been on Movellas for like nearly three years now.
The home of 1D fanfiction?
I am not saying any of this lightly.
I do not understand what all the bloody fuss was about. The book was not that great.
And some people might ask that if I didn't enjoy it, why did I bother finishing it? Well, mainly because I have some sort of closure complex [I just made that up]: I can't stop reading a book when there's more of it left. And, to be fair, it wasn't all bad. I did enjoy different bits, and connect with different characters [WHO ROTH DECIDES TO-- I'll get to it].
Hey, I finished reading the Twilight Saga in like two weeks [or something].
If I can get through that, I'm practically unstoppable.
But moving on. Before I get knives thrown at my head, please read on. Or don't [like seriously] if you want to keep your... hopes and dreams and aspirations [?] for the story intact.
