My “very good condition” book is MISSING A PIECE!

Yep. Looks literally like someone chewed it out

Disappointed to get my book without the cover/dust jacket.

I’ve been searching for a hardback cover of Divergent to complete my series collection. This book is pictured with a dust jacket, but arrived without one. I am disappointed. However, the book itself is in very good condition Sans a name printed in the front cover.

Saticefyingly compelling and action filled

I read this series and I must say, it's probably one of my first suggestions to anyone! The character development is amazing, and the characters themselves are great. Veronica Roth's way of writing is one of my favorite styles, and adds a lot to her series. I would strongly suggest this book/series to any one 14+. (The first book is by far my favorite, as many people who have also read the series would agree)

The Best Book Series Ever!

I don't think I've ever read a better book! I couldn't put this book down! I have read many books because I am a major bookworm and I will tell you right now that this book is a must read! I definitely recommend reading this book and the books that follow.


i bought the like new option and the book is so run down. the back cover is barely legible, the front has leftover sticker residue, there’s someone’s name written inside the cover. it looks more like barely good condition. i’m not very happy with this. but the actually book is very good

wow wow wow!

I ordered in ‘acceptable’ condition and it is in more than great!! Dust jacket came with it and it’s not even frayed on the edges!! very nice!

Very Well Written

I absolutely loved this book, and I guarantee that you will not be disappointed. Like I said, it has been very well written, and the author does a very good job at drawing you in. It is fast moving, and I found it extremely hard to put down.

One of my favorites!

I absolutely love this book and the plot line.

My review is on book condition

Book was sold as Very Good and condition was Fair at best. Maybe since the books were not packaged at all except thrown into a bag together with a hardcover but this book was beat up pretty badly in transit or prior to receiving. So condition RECEIVED was fair to poor.

Exciting and different !

This wasn’t my favorite series. But i did really enjoy it. The concept is fun and different .

the shipping is making no sence


Read Divergent!!

Veronica Roth has a similar writing style to Suzanne Collins. I loveddddd this book! Seriously, read it!! It is quite similar to the Hunger Games, both take place in a dystopia world in the future, and they both follow an amazing protagonist.

Missing outside sleeve on hard copy...ordered ‘very good condition’

I ordered a very good condition hard copy and received a hard copy in very good condition but it’s missing the outside sleeve.

I Now Understand The Hype

I've heard a lot about this book and hadn't read it up until this year. I figure I'm in the target audience or a bit older, so I really think its great for ages 13-16 or so. Its definitely a staple in the YA dystopian genre and I can see why. The plot was exciting and fast paced, but still allowing you to catch up. Its a very creative and well executed plot and I honestly really enjoyed it. The end left me wanting more and I ended up reading all 3 of the books in a single weekend. Definitely a great book and I'm glad to have it in my collection.


This book has so much detail the movie did not, of course it would be impossible for he movie due to time but I’m so glad I chose to read this book. Could not put down.


This book is full of twists and turns! I definitely recommend it to anyone who loves dystopian YA novels!!

I only wanted to put the book on my shelf...

So I received this book in the mail yesterday. I had previously read it and wanted it only to add to my collection of favorite books. I ordered it in Like-new condition, but when it came in the mail it didn't have a dust jacket! This was extremely disappointing as the entire point of buying it was to display the wonderful cover! When the book was NEW it had a dust jacket, so a book advertised as LIKE-NEW should also have one. This is terribly misleading to the buyer!

Wow! I couldn't wait to see what happened next!

The book Divergent is about a strong and brave sixteen year old that overcomes her fears by living her security of her family and becoming an adult in a world of mutiny, corruptness and love. She must face her biggest fears and learn what it means to be so different. A young girl named Beatris Pryor lives in a dystopian society that has taken over the destroyed city of Chicago. The people here live in groups called “factions”. She has five faction choices in Amity, Abnegation, Candor, Dauntless, or Erudite and must choose when she turns sixteen . She has to choose or she will become factionless (otherwise known as homeless.) But by choosing, she may have to leave her birth family and they will act like she doesn’t exist. The consequences of choosing the faction she feels drawn to could possibly bring about her death or it could mean happiness with a man with whom she falls deeply in love. She faces an aptitude test that will help her choose but instead reveals a secret that must remain that way or place her in a position she doesn’t want to face. I can’t wait to read the next book “Insurgent”. I definitely give this book a five out of five stars!

Divergent book review

The book was a whole lot better than the movie. there was so much more depth to the story line and it made a whole lot more sense. Because i had watched the movie first there were somethings that i wasn't expecting. The main characters were Tris, Four, Christina, and Peter. There is less overall blood than what there was in the movie which I liked.


I use this website all the time when looking for books and have noticed some off things.. that I would ignore because of the great prices, but this time I can't ignore it... I ordered this book(in English) and when I got it in the mail the book was completely in RUSSIAN.. YUP RUSSIAN.


So much better than the movie

Great Idea!

The storyline makes for a great idea but the main love relationship feels rushed. There’s so much that could be done with this idea of the factions and for that reason, the book definitely kept me interested.

This book is a must read!!

It has the perfect amount of everything! It is a great book for any reader! Just enough action without super gory details.


I ordered this in good condition and it arrived in DEPLORABLE condition. Was still a fantastic casual read.

One of my favorites

Divergent is one of my favorite books. I have the entire trilogy. It's much better than the movie. Much more detail, and a lot more background.

Very good book

I really liked the book more than I liked the movies, the book has more interesting facts that weren't completely explained in the movies which make them a must.

Absolutly love it

A great book with just the right amount of Action, Romance, and Suspense. Kept me on the edge of my seat!

Book much much better than the movie if you liked the hunger games you will like this series

If youve seen the movie dont worry. The book is a completly differnt story. After reading this series you will become engraged at a single preview for any of the movies.
