The Hunger Games
Not even close. Hunger Games is miles ahead of Divergent. This is like comparing The Dark Knight to Batman & Robin.
these books are so much more popular, thats why they are winning
Film wise these ones are better but I would understand why you would say otherwise.
This has been one of the best and always will be.
It's just more interactive. You can wonder what faction you are in, and really question some traits we believe are in humans and it shows discrimination and corruptness in governments.
The Divergent Series has a stronger lesson/impression that you should not divide into groups-like the factions. Though The Hunger Games Series shows scenes of violence, and in my opinion, that isn't very appropriate for students who are looking for ideas.
