Divergent  - Veronica Roth I'm really on the fence about this one. On one hand the writing is really excellent, and the story is a good example of a gripping narrative. On the other hand it is truly disturbing, at the main character is often tortured and twice molested. The quick descent into barbarity is shocking. The worst in human beings, be it hurting people you care about to survive or suicide when you can't take the pressure, is laid out in front of you. I felt like I was suffocating with the weight of all the antagonism that the main character was faced with. Personally, I'll never want to read it again and I'm not sure whether I'll read the sequels.
