I was on the Divergent wiki very recently and discovered people not insulting, but very close to insulting Veronica Roth's writing. A Wiki Contributor " She had just started dating Uriah and... chooff! she died. Silly, silly, silly, idiotic." I just wanted to say, it wasn't her fault she died. Some things that needed to be done weren't and people went through simulations. Marlene just so happened to be one of them who went through a simulation. I mean it makes since in my head. Marlene---before her and Uriah started dating--- was a minor detail in a huge case. She wasn't a huge part of the story so it makes a tiny bit of logic to kill her off. I'm not saying I don't like Marlene, Her character reminds myself of me. In fact , I AM Marlene. It makes since to kill her off though. I don't know. I don't. Oh Well. I tried to prove my point. i just threw it out on the stoop to see if the cat licked it up. I'll find out sooner or later.
