When I finished Divergent (which I haven’t reviewed since I didn’t have the blog up at that time, considering to write one, perhaps after Bout of Books is done), I immediately got Insurgent and Allegiant because… Divergent! I mean, that book was such a good read, I couldn’t put it down, and while some parts of the story doesn’t make much sense (since when do dystopian stories make sense, anyway?), I loved it.

Add to that mix dreamy watercolor-y drawings, a great soundtrack, and a story based on a well-loved (apparently) children’s book series, and you have the perfect chill-out, relaxing Friday afternoon (as I don’t work on Friday’s) movie.
