In many ways, The Hunger Games and Divergent are very similar books. In both books there is a young girl with a loving family in a post apocalyptic world. In these post apocalyptic worlds, the society and government are set up in a way to prevent another war, however, the strict, cruel and contrived rules make these worlds very flawed. Both girls are brave and need to face challenges beyond their years. In the Hunger Games, Katniss must survive the killing of all the tributes so that her family and District can receive food. In Divergent, Tris must survive brutal Dauntless initiation rites so that she does not end up "factionless" and homeless. In both books, the heroines go head on and finish on top. They also have male characters that are their supporters and admire their bravery. Later in their stories, both Katniss and Tris take on battles with their governments. As a reader, I was drawn into both books immediately and could not put them down. They are both books are great reads and very similar but the cosepts of each new world are very different and interesting in its own way.
