Anthem (Part 1 & 2) Connection Captain - Ariana
From reading part one and two of Anthem, I think the book reminds me of the movie Divergent. In Divergent there are five different factions: Abnegation, for the selfless; Amity, for the peaceful; Candor, for the honest; Dauntless, for the brave; and Erudite, for the intelligent. You stay in your faction until you turn sixteen, once you turn sixteen you have to take a test that recommends what faction you should go to, but when Tris (the main character) takes her test her results is "divergent", which means she thinks differently than the rest and dose not have a specific place to go, and if someone found this out they would kill her. I think this is much like Anthem because, in Anthem until you turn fifteen you stay in the Home of the Scholars with all your "brothers", but when you turn fifteen they tell you what you are going to do for the rest of your life, and Equality 7-2521 are kind of like Tris in the sense that they think differently than their "brothers", so they are kind of Divergent.
"They had torn out the tongue of the Transgressor, so that they could speak no longer." This part of the book reminds of The Hunger Games because, whoever broke the law, as one of their punishments got there tongues chopped off and would have to be servants to the Capitol. Another thing I find similar between the two books is that in the Hunger Games no one dares disobey the Capitol, much like every one in Anthem. And in Anthem they mention how every once in a while someone would run away alone, like in the third book Mokingjay where Katniss runs away to District 13, that everyone thinks is destroyed.
