I read Divergent in less than a day, and it isn't exactly a small book; it is quite a page turner. It also has a really intriguing scenario, which gets even more so as the books progress and more is revealed about the world Divergent is set in. Divergent is about a girl called Tris finding her feet in the very odd society she lives in, in the sequel, Insurgent, war has just broken out and Tris is having problems with guilt and friends, in the final book in the series, Allegiant, she leaves the city that is all she has ever know and finds out some things that completely change her view of the world. The series is a bit violent for my tastes, and it took me ages to finish Insurgent because of all the raw, poorly handled anger.
Super sorry I'm late posting this- my bad.
The Odyssey of Falling is about a girl who's best friend has just died, so it isn't particularly cheery. It didn’t have a particularly satisfying ending either. Some people like this kind of book, but I'm not one of them, and even so this isn't all that outstanding in its genre. I personally didn’t like this book because there was a lot of being stupidly rash, and although that was sort of the point that's not something I'm in to, also there was way to much doing drugs and swearing in it. The Odyssey of Falling is a good book if you like touchy-feely books that lack any sort of logic, but I don't and to me it feels incomplete.
Note: this is an excellent example of how NOT to handle grief- do not let things get this crazy; talk to someone you trust and/or a grief counselor.
