Run-On Sentence Reviews: Divergent

DIVERGENTI should start this out by saying that I am going to be biased in my review because I read and loved the book but I also can’t say that I understand the unfavorable reviews because I feel like I can safely say that the movie was not as bad as the Rotten Tomatoes score might lead you to believe, I mean, sure, it had to get through a lot story and sometimes felt a little rushed but I thought that it was an action-packed good time overall and that Shailene Woodley did a good job of playing tough and vulnerable and that HOLY FRIJOLES Theo James is the greatest thing to happen to movies in a long time because I dare you look into his eyes and not melt of course I am again biased because Four has been one of my top literary crushes since reading the book.

Verdict: It has its flaws but is still a great big screen experience.

Earlier today, I posted my thoughts on Allegiant, the third book in the Divergent series, but even earlier this week, I re-read the first two books to refresh myself on the series.

This led to me watching the Divergent trailer too many times, which led to me watching interviews, Comic Con panels, and featurettes.  All because I fell pretty hard for Theo James.

This could have something to do with immersing myself in the series this week and my abiding love for the character of Four, but also have you seen him?  Better yet, have you heard him?!  His voice could melt butter.
