If I liked the hunger games would I like this series? I'm a little hesitant to read them

If you liked the Hunger Games, you'll die in love for Divergent. WAY BETTER!

Yes, because it has the same thought process. In both cases the heroine is wanting to find a way to survive in a corrupt government. In the end I think you will love the Divergent series 10x more.

I actually liked this series a bit better than The Hunger Games. Both of them have a strong female main character, a bit of romance, and interesting settings in dystopian versions of the United States. If you liked THG it would be worth at least giving this series a chance.

I hated the Hunger Games because it was so depressing. I really like the Divergent series. It is more uplifting.

I loved the Hunger Games and I loved the first two books in the Divergent Series (am starting the third book shortly). While they are similar in the fact that they are set in a future society and have a teenage female lead, that's really where the similarities end. Hunger Games vaguely references areas as they would pertain to current geography, where Divergent clearly states that they are in Chicago and references landmarks as they are and what they have been taught about them. I think if you like the Hungers Games, you will also like Divergent without feeling like you are reading the same story.

The first book Divergent is a really good read. Then, I read the second and third books Insurgant and Alliegant and I was like "what happened here?" The second and third books are full of plot holes and are basically the characters reflecting on what happens in Divergent. I don't think they can really be compared because other than having a strong female protagonist, I felt like Hunger Games was such a unique concept, and very thought provoking. Divergent is not. Also, I root for Katniss. I don't really like Tris in Divergent (very headstrong, but no in a good way. Very whiney in Insurgant).
