I think the Mortal Instruments is better. Fellow Shadowhunters or Divergent please come and argue.

I disagree because Divergent is more better. I've read both. But base on my opinion. Divergent can help us in our society. It can teach us to be civilized people. Not like Mortal Instruments its all about MAGIC and stuff. We cant learn

The Mortal Instruments is better because it is teaching us that good trumps evil. Divergent is telling us to rebel against society. Don't get me wrong, I loved both but the Mortal Instruments had a happy ending and Divergent didn't have the best ending.

There is a big difference between both.. MI is a fantasy THERE WILL BE NO SUCH LIKE CREATURES THAT THERE IN THE BOOK. While Divergent... It can happen to us in the near future

You really expect people to have a gene that makes them immune to simulations? If something like Divergent ever happened, it would not be in the near future, it would be after some major event that tore Earth apart a very long time from now. MI is a fantasy, that is true, but what I'm arguing is not which one is more realistic, it's which book series is better. *MAJOR SPOILER HERE* The main characters in MI don't die and they live "happily ever after" which leaves the reader satisfied. In the Divergent trilogy, Tris died and Tobias fell in love with Christina which angered most readers including me.

That's why Divergent is more unique. In other stories. They are all the same it is always been predicted that "Happili Ever Aefter". In Divergent it is really unexpected a "sudden twist" in the story

Divergent angers the reader and everyone reacted like this: http://flavorwire.com...
MI has us satisfied as I repeat once again.
There is a sudden twist in Divergent but it 'kills' the reader in you. You get upset with the author and the book. You wonder why on Earth Veronica Roth would kill Tris but she did. MI has a satisfying ending.
MI is action, adventure, romance, thrill and suspense. Divergent has action, a touch of romance, and suspense.

Con unfortunately you succumb to your opponent on your first issue through omission, as well as contradicting your self, you shouldn't say this is unrealistic when supporting a fictional book...

Neither. Both series sucked in my opinion but than I like my happy endings and the Divergent series definitely didn't have that now did it. As for the Mortal Instruments, I made it to book four and got bored and boredom is never a good thing when reading.

I have read the first divergent series and the first 3 Shadow Hunters books. Is that enough?

I love the Divergent series but I've never read the Mortal Instruments. But otherwise I'd debate...
