I don't see why not - they just might not care as much about the love story part (which is not the whole story by any means)

Maybe, if you don't mind the fact that it's written through a female 16 year old perspective.

My 14 year old daughter said that there are boys in her school reading it. She assumes that they like the book but is not sure.

Yes, i would recomend it to all Young Adult readers (teens and upwards) of both sex. It perfectly blends together touching romance with thrilling action, hence both male and female readers will be equally excited by the storyline. Similar in style to Harry Potter or The Hunger Games, this is an interesting Dystopian read for all!

teen boys (& girls) are clearly the ones who'll call the book good because they will identify with a character living in an unfair society where its is justified to rebel against a fanatically rigid society. But is the book "good" for anyone? Well, it doesn't have any bad words, and the romance is refreshingly innocent (at least book 1)... but it makes up for that with all ample violence such as getting stabbed in the eye with a butter knife, mandatory fights practice until knockout, kidnapping, attempted murder, suicide, and lots of cold blooded killing by all characters (most saintly included)

I'm 41 and about 2/3 of the way through, and I love it! If you liked Hunger Games I think you'll enjoy it.

This is a book for anybody with low literary standards. When I say low, I mean bottom-of-the-barrel standards. The first installment of Hunger Games was good but then Collins forgot what made it good in books two and three. Roth presumably read Hunger Games, didn't understand what made it good, decided to add some more rules and tried to ride Hunger Games' coattails. If you're good with that, then this is a book for you.
