  • Veronica Roth Crushed My Soul

    So my friend recomended this book AFTER she read it. That's right she knew the whole story and still made me ride that rollercoaster of emotion. After reading Divergent I was instantly hungry for more. Then I read Insurgenent and I was like "meh... that was good but not as great." So I had to read Allegiant to find out what becomes of our beloved Tris and friends. Well lets just say the I felt like I was Will getting shoot in the head by Veronica Roth. I Don't want to put any spoilers but honestly what the heck are you reading this for if you haven't read the book. What Veronica Roth did to her readers was pretty sharty. And to all of you saying it was a beautiful ending.... Just Nooo it was not!! I seriously think Roth is out to crush souls and make people curl up in a ball, cry and pretend everything they just read wasn't real. Well my friend and I don't talk much any more and it's mainly because she moved half way around the world but a tiny bit of it is because of this book. So there you go Roth crushing souls and friendships one book at a time!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Disappointed

    SPOILER ALERT!!!!! The ending was ridiculous to me. The author said in an interview basically that tris deserved a more powerful ending than a happy one...seriously? Ok ill even buy that for a second (which I don't! ) but tobias would NEVER have left tris to fight all those guards and workers on her own and tris, having been through all she had, would have known to have more people with her and weapons! I'm sorry but I cannot swallow those parts. It's just not realistic! So then her powerful ending is to die ALONE at the hands of the man responsible for her mother's death...did you decide you hated your character Ms. Roth? That's how it felt to me. I would have been ok with it more if it had at least been realistic, but if you just HAD to kill one of the main characters to get that 'powerful ending', I think having them fight together, side by side like they should, and then having tobias die in her arms would have been better (but still do not think either should have died). There could have been an accident and one or both of their memories got wiped and so they had to try to fall in love many other options for a not so perfectly happy ending. Ughhh just disappointed :(

  • Allegiant by Veronica Roth

    Slow read. At times very boring. Not an ending I would have chosen nor one that I liked, as these books were about Tris AND Tobias but the end does not include them both which is a shame. Being brave does not have to end up in death. It could also mean choosing a different way to live.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Veronica Roth’s Allegiant is, without a doubt, one of the most anticipated releases of 2013 for many teen and adult readers. It is also the conclusion to a series that has become exceedingly popular, birthing its own base of fans that will soon be treated to a movie rendition. Along with that comes a great deal of pressure, certainly for the author but for readers as well. Will the book conclude the series satisfactorily? How will the stories end for these much-beloved characters? The questions are endless and no matter what an author does, there will be readers who love it and others who don’t. After concluding Allegiant I feel that Roth ended the Divergent series with loyalty to her vision and its characters, as well as incorporating some ground-shaking surprises that kept the book exciting right to the very end. Tris and Four, along with their former-Dauntless companions, are facing a new world. When a video reveals they are not alone in the world, they must decide if they will seek out unknown possibilities or stay in the only place they have ever known but which is dissolving into rebellion between the factionless and the Allegiant, those who wish to see the factions returned to their previous place of importance. When they do decide to leave they are welcomed into an organization that reveals that their city has been an experiment, an attempt to repair damaged genes and DNA. This ideal of damaged and pure genes will come to consume them and will eventually cause Four, always the sturdiest of the group, to question his self worth. When the survival of their former city becomes endangered Tris and Four, along with old and new alliances, will make a final stand against enemies inside and outside of the city, one that will only come to fruition through forgiveness and sacrifice. I was one of those readers who was unsure how it would end, but I will say that after finishing Allegiant I believe Roth has done an admirable job of bringing such a popular series to its end. I had some issues with Insurgent (specifically that I had a hard time keeping track of the characters and what their purpose was in the story line, along with finding the story somewhat fractured) but none of those were present in Allegiant. All of the characters played crucial roles in the progression of the story. Four’s struggle was one of the more interesting evolutions to read. In Insurgent we watched Tris suffer from the aftermath of her actions, but the uncertainty Four experiences is of a completely different nature. Roth has turned the former dynamic on its head; Tris is the individual who is certain and unswayable, while this time around it is Four who questions his purpose. The tension between them is different than the previous novel, but it too stems from the changes in the environment around them. One of the discussions I had with a friend was the change in narrative. Unlike the previous two books, parts of this story are told from Four’s point of view. At first it seems a little disjointed but by the end of the novel you can understand why Roth decided to take this route. It is also interesting to take into account that Roth published an short online novella about Four during the summer of 2013 and more will be coming in the near future. This might also explain why Roth made Four’s a voice a much more central aspect for this final installment. Of the series, Divergent is still my favourite. I loved the factions, the way in which they structured society and placed characters in defined categories according to their strengths and values. I found the characters did the most developing in that book as well. However, I do admire how Roth ended her series, taking a route that I didn’t think she would and possibly risking upsetting a few readers in doing so. For that fact alone, I will say that Allegiant is a fitting finish to the Divergent series. The Divergent series is often compared to or recommended to those who enjoyed the Hunger Games and while they are different, they do contain some of the same themes, emotions and challenges that have made both so popular with readers of all ages. Both are social commentaries in their own right and both declare that people, however willing or unwilling they may be, can make a difference. It’s a message worth relaying to teens and even adults. Allegiant concludes a thrilling series with a memorable ending and a lingering respect for the choices Roth has her characters make.

  • Different writing style.

    This book was written differently than the two books prior. The views of both Tris and Tobias often caused some confusion, as instead of following the thoughts of one main character, you were given the thoughts of two.

    Thanks for your feedback!
