It’s Divergent DVD day – enter to win

I’m sure you all remember earlier this year when I raved about the Divergent movie premiere? You’ll know that I thought that it was a pretty good interpretation of the book, and that basically I’m quite a big fan.

Well, today the DVD came out, so if you missed it at the cinema, you can now grab it in a variety of outlets. And if you don’t want to buy it, you can enter my giveaway to win a copy!

Yes, I’ve got a copy of the film on DVD *and* Insurgent the book to giveaway. I’m so good to you. It’s all in the widget below.

We were very lucky to be sent a copy of the DVD to check out so that we could remind ourselves of the film. It’s as good as I remembered, with some really fantastic action scenes. (I would say that, I’m a fan.) I’m still intrigued as to how the plot holes are going to be filled in – but I’ve seen some of the deleted scenes and I can quite see why they didn’t make the cut. It really wouldn’t have been a 12A, and it would have been a much darker film than I enjoy. For all I enjoy thrillers, I’m not fond of gratuitous gore, and what I can cope with in a book is much more difficult on screen.

I’ve seen quite a few criticisms of the world displayed in the film though, and for many of the people pointing out flaws, the best advice I can give is read the book. It’s far more complete, and while it might give you a few questions, they’ll be very different ones to those inspired by the film.

So, who’s watching Divergent this week? Must be a few of you out there! And what’s your faction?

    Sounds intriguing …. I must look out how both book and film. I don’t know either.

  2. I like Tris she’s a strong female character. I love this book and think the film was very good x

  3. It’s new to me.

  4. Tracey Peach says:

    I have never seen Divergent before but would love to. I don’t have a favourite character in a book because each character is unique

  5. Isabel O'Brien says:

    I guess my favourite is probably Juliette from the Shatter Me series of books, one of my favourite YA series.

  6. Tracy Nixon says:

    I haven’t seen Divergent but read some great reviews! Thank you x

  7. My favourite character was Natalie. I know you don’t see much of her in the film, but I LOVED the scenes with her in the books and the film didn’t do them justice, I think (like her mentioning the chocolate cake – so good!) And I really enjoyed finding our more about her character after her death – very nicely done.

  8. laura banks says:

    i haven’t actually seen it but it sounds really good

  9. My 14 yo daughter has read the first two books in the trilogy and saw Divergent at the cinema and would love a copy of the DVD. Her favourite person in the film is Tris because she is a strong character.

  10. My favourite character is Katniss from the Hunger Games. She was the first female character that I read about who fought for herself and her family.

  11. Natalie Crossan says:

    I haven’t seen it yet but can’t wait to heard great things :)

  12. Kiran Parry says:

    I liked the four character in Divergent. I thought he was great.

  13. Jo Glasspool says:

    I would have to say its Katniss Everdean, A strong female character that doesnt let a man define her. She sticks up for herself and is reliable and loyal to those deserving.

  14. YOLANDA DAVIS says:

    I loved the film; four was my favourite character.

  15. Nele Coghe says:

    Both Tris and Katniss are at the top of my list. They’re strong and honest, both being pushed into a leader role they don’t want. But they do it anyway, to protect the people they love. We could all learn a lot from them..

  16. Thank you for the chance to win! My daughter loves the series

  17. has to be katniss everdeen xxxx

  18. Kerry Locke says:

    Has to be Katniss from the Hunger Games .. though Hazel from a Fault in Our Stars was an incredible character as well… to hard to choose just one!

    Absolutely loved the book Divergent and am really looking forward to watching the film adaptation.

  25. Charlie Wand says:

    I haven’t seen Divergent but my favourite YA character must be Katniss from the Hunger Games because she shows all her strengths AND weaknesses making her more realistic than many characters

  26. Jim Milligan says:

    Katniss Everdeen, although Tris is good too.

  27. I haven’t read the books yet but I can’t wait to. My current favourite YA character is Ron from Harry Potter :)

    Rhine Ellery from Whither (Chemical Garden) Read it if you haven’t already, it’s excellent! And her new series too :)

  45. Eleanor Barley says:

    Lyra from the His Dark Materials trilogy, if that counts as young adult, she’s strong, brave, and I just think she’s great!

  46. Samantha Wheeler says:

    I love how strong Tris has to be in the Divergent series, but as I read The Hunger Games first, Katniss Everdean will always be the ‘original’ kick-butt girl!

  47. I was so disappointed I missed it at the cinema – will definitely be getting a copy!

  48. As for my favourite YA character – I don’t know if the Kate Daniels series counts, but she would definitely be right up there!
