In todays video I look at the first of the Divergent series; Divergent by Veronica Roth, a young adult dystopian novel that piggybacked success off of the Hunger Games trilogy. But just how derivative is it? Is it truly a cash grab? What does Divergent even mean?? Find out that and more in todays book review.

    This was so funny. I just found your channel and you neeeed to continue w the divergent series. Please!!!

  2. Amber on September 21, 2022 at 8:42 am

    The Great Lakes are super deep and it stays pretty cool around here. I doubt they could ever become a marsh.

  3. sinner on September 21, 2022 at 8:43 am

    I stand by the fact that the Maze Runner series was the best YA series

  4. Alexah Eure on September 21, 2022 at 8:45 am

    I remember enjoying this book back when I was like 13 but I hated the 2nd one (most boring shit I’ve ever read; literally like nothing happened plot wise) so I never read the 3rd. Listening to this video now that I’m in my 20s is hilarious. I was def deep into my fanfiction phase back then so it makes sense why I liked it so much

  5. Alex on September 21, 2022 at 8:45 am

    I’ve lost 150lbs over 2 years my size changes every few months one week in I didn’t see any difference in size or muscle tone (I was 350 lbs morbidly obese so I had 150lbs to lose and did it in a healthy way with a non restrictive diet and exercise)

  6. MegaKaitouKID1412 on September 21, 2022 at 8:46 am

    The stupid part of the lake drying up into the marsh that it sort of implies the other great lakes are in sorry states too? Like were talking four of the top five largest lakes in the world, what happened to all that water???

  7. Teifan 667 on September 21, 2022 at 8:46 am

    I actually never noticed that the fourth movie never came out XD

  8. Broccoli on September 21, 2022 at 8:49 am

    I love how… no matter how subtly sarcastic Alizee is about some of these ads, they just… keep paying her. I’m fucking dead

  11. Tbird on September 21, 2022 at 8:53 am

    I remember reading this book as a kid and maybe the author addressed it at some point that I missed, but I was always so stuck on the idea that if the whole time you’re being told that if the government finds out you’re divergent they will 100% kill you, why would one of your fear simulations things not be someone outing you as divergent?? I was so sure it was going to come up and then it never did, like not all the fears were metaphors so why was that not more of a concern lol it would have been all I could think about before the test or whatever

  12. BaileyJ on September 21, 2022 at 8:54 am

    I feel like it would have been a lot more interesting to see her spend her childhood convinced she didn’t belong in Abnegation, but then she decided she actually did want to stay, and then seeing her come to terms with not, actually, being not like other girls, and learning to be comfortable with the faction she never thought she could belong in

  13. Ren Whittall on September 21, 2022 at 8:55 am

    the dumbest part was making Divergents bad when it’s later revealed the whole reason for the city and factions is to make divergents because genetic editing fucked everyone up. they could’ve made it better with the divergent being the ruling faction where Tris is just an abnegation or dauntless and maybe not divergent enough or learning to be divergent and leading a rebellion against the divergents because they’re assholes who treat all the other factions like dirt, there are no factionless just the factions who get stuck with shitty jobs that server the divergents. Now we have the veronica roth capitol equivalent and it can be way ore compelling story now that the bullshit organization beyond the walls is gone because that’s just insanity that definetly wasn’t planned out very well

  14. Katherine Rinck on September 21, 2022 at 8:55 am

    I completely agree with you about the Eragon series. Derivative af, but it’s written so well that I don’t mind one bit. He did a wonderful job with world building.

  15. Ann Richards on September 21, 2022 at 8:55 am

    I took a British transfer student to Lake Michigan in collage. It also blew her mind haha.

  16. Bruno Queiroz on September 21, 2022 at 8:57 am

    Oh yes, the military faction is gonna be the edgy "no rules" individualistic one. That sure can’t go wrong. Not like modern militaries require discipline and organisation and unit tactics, certainly wasting like 70% of your manpower will help your defensive roles. I swear, these idiots would get splattered by any enemy unit with basic formation and squad training and strategic planning no matter how well they fight one on one.

  17. Victoria T on September 21, 2022 at 8:58 am

    These book reviews give me joy. It’s nice to hear someone around my age rag on things none of my friends care about. It’s downright cathartic.

  18. chloedsmith on September 21, 2022 at 8:58 am

    Actually cackled at "Is this Onision"

  19. Αγγελική Γκουντρουμπή on September 21, 2022 at 8:59 am

    please do sarah j maas a court of thorns and roses! I just want see your reaction.. and if you try to read the first book please please check the second too..!!!
    I love your videos..!!!

  20. Ava Patino on September 21, 2022 at 9:00 am

    Please please do the rest of the books

  21. Z Cross on September 21, 2022 at 9:02 am

    Why does it sound like someone has a gun to Ali’s head but she really doesn’t give a crap when she’s doing the sponsor read? lol. Also, I would consider myself a Candor person if I gave a shit about the Divergent series, only seen the movies but I hate how you reduce people that value honesty down to Ben Shapiro assholes. Honesty isn’t even about facts, that’s fucking Erudite if it’s anyone, a truly honest person would admit when they’re saying something based on an opinion. Ben Shapiro and Onision are stone cold liars and would be gutted in Candor.

  22. Aubree Yost on September 21, 2022 at 9:04 am

    I go on like a lot of cross country road trips doing animal rescue and also going to dog shows with my own dog. And let me just tell you that your reviews of ya novels are what keep me going lmao

  23. agreeableWitch on September 21, 2022 at 9:09 am

    I really enjoyed the first book as a young teen, but it wasn’t because it was good. I was a really anxious neurodivergent child, and the idea of a girl a lot like me coming into her own personality, and finding a kind of everyday bravery to explore and have fun made me feel happy. Awful book. But her arc was uplifting to 13 year old me 🙂

  24. Noodle Poodle on September 21, 2022 at 9:10 am

    The worldbuilding is so poorly done. Why have a school of mixed factions? Why wouldn’t each faction have their own? What is the point of the aptitude test if they get a choice later on? If people who don’t fit neatly into Factions are Divergent, does that mean the Factionless are Divergent? Why let them exist?

  25. meagan newlin on September 21, 2022 at 9:12 am

    Veronica Roth wrote this in 3 weeks. Like literally she said she wrote the whole thing during winter break in college…
    Just shows how little care went into writing these books

  26. Ash Benamti on September 21, 2022 at 9:13 am

    And as soon as I watch this video what do I seen in my suggestion bar?
    Divergent Series, The: Insurgent
    Literally the movie titled as it is above. lol

  27. October on September 21, 2022 at 9:13 am

    Disagree that dauntless seems the coolest, Amity is basically a socialist commune where everyone gardens all day

  28. sir dame sander on September 21, 2022 at 9:15 am

    only two things from divergent ever really stuck with me . the first was the awkward scene where it’s revealed that one of triss’ six big fears is banging four. the second was the third book’s plot twist being so fucking stupid that I put down the book, lost it, and didn’t think to even try and finish the series for another two years. the author has admitted to writing the first book in two weeks over winter break btw, and no hate to her hustle but it sure fucking reads like it

  29. Innocent Hedgehog on September 21, 2022 at 9:17 am

    Another plot hole I only just realised: in Tris’s fear landscape, why wasn’t one of her fears her Divergence being found out? Come to think of it, anyone who is Divergent should have that same fear. Can’t exactly hide it when it comes to the final exam.

  30. A Little Bit Hailey on September 21, 2022 at 9:19 am

    Eragon was definitely published because of nepotism. His parents were the publishers. At the very least any not related to him publisher would’ve made him cut out so much extra fluff and stuffing and pointless trimmings. If they were even going to publish it

  31. BaileyJ on September 21, 2022 at 9:21 am

    ADAB (all Dauntless are bastards)

  32. Santeri on September 21, 2022 at 9:21 am

    I feel like her whole thing about hating weakness as effectively overcompensation for growing up in abnegation could’ve worked really well IF the third book had actually subverted that with the ending. if the finale involved her understanding that reacting emotionally to situations that one should reasonably react emotionally to and refraining from doing pointlessly reckless things at all times aren’t signs of weakness, or if she’d realized that dauntless wasn’t right about dying (including suicide and needless self sacrifice) being the epitome of bravery, I think that could’ve been a really interesting choice for her character development. admittedly I haven’t read the third book since shortly after it came out, but I don’t remember it ever feeling like she learned to balance the strengths and weaknesses of the teachings from other factions in a way that examined these character flaws. maybe she does on a surface level, I honestly don’t remember, but I think the ending counteracts it anyway when she does exactly what book 1 tris would have done. it’s honestly really depressing that she’s just always ready to die and thinks that’s strength.

  33. Eastern Lights on September 21, 2022 at 9:27 am

    Triss describing her muscles sounds like she just found a bunch of tumors that grew on her legs overnight.

  34. Anna W on September 21, 2022 at 9:29 am

    That ADHD mood of saying "I’d be in Candor" because I have no filter and say bluntly what I think all the time!

  35. dog ear flopper on September 21, 2022 at 9:29 am

    I usually don’t see advertisements for gambling as blatant at this Jackpot World one, but here we are

  36. Dana on September 21, 2022 at 9:29 am

    After hearing of hazing in the Russian army…I’m looking at the daultless as not as out there as I thought.

  37. Isobethia on September 21, 2022 at 9:30 am

    I’ve never read the Divergent series (I’ve also never read the Hunger Games—dystopians don’t really appeal to me), but I remember being told by my friends that Divergent was basically a knock off of the Hunger Games and not to bother with it. So, this video was really fun to listen to. I thank you for your sacrifice and perseverance, Alizee!

  38. Alyssa D'Angelo on September 21, 2022 at 9:31 am

    Best part about listening to the audio book was the reader’s pronunciation of Tobias as Toe-bias. I envisioned a toe with large eyes the entire time.

  39. Galaxia7 on September 21, 2022 at 9:34 am

    1:08 the Great Lakes are indeed great

  40. sir dame sander on September 21, 2022 at 9:34 am

    blink twice if jackpot world is holding you hostage

  41. Green & Grey Solarpunk on September 21, 2022 at 9:34 am

    I actually think Dauntless is the only realistic faction. Dauntless are basically a gang, so a realistic representation of the police/military

  42. toyosibee.mp3 on September 21, 2022 at 9:35 am

    The fact one of the plotlines is bascially erudite going "hey, what if FUCK abnegation?" and everyone else going "omg, so true??"
