Divergent Thinking: YA Authors on Veronica Roth’s Divergent Trilogy

We rated this book:


This is, hands down, been the best companion book to any I have read so far. Divergent Thinking takes readers through the entire book, breaking down the psychological foundation of the story and what it all means. Included in the book are maps, drawings, pictures, and plenty of citations that support the author’s basis for breaking down the story into some type of psychoanalysis. If you really take the time to absorb the actual meaning behind every action in the Divergent book, it is amazing how it all just suddenly pieces together and makes complete sense.

From symbolism, to the reasons why a character does or acts a certain way, to the emotions that drive them, be it from bravery, fear, or love, author Leah Wilson took a great dystopian story and opened it wide up and provided readers with even more opportunities to question ones motives, to feel a person’s inner struggle, and even lets readers know that the Divergent author, Veronica Roth, writes from experience from her own personal demons. This book is a must, as you will never read the Divergent series in the same way!
