Young adult novels are incredibly popular – dystopian novels, in particular. There’s good news: Readers can enjoy a wide variety of YA and adult fiction novels that depict brave, young, people fighting back against an oppressive society.

Some of the novels listed here that are similar to Divergent are true classics, considered among the greatest dystopian novels ever written. These include George Orwell’s 1984 and of course, Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World.

Keep in mind, as well, that you might want to read several of the novels listed here now, because many will soon be coming to the big screen. In 2014 alone, Lois Lowry’s The Giver and The Maze Runner by James Dashner debuted as major theatrical releases. Check out this list of the next young adult novels that should be adapted to film – it’s an impressive list.
