Title: Allegiant (3/3 in the Divergent series)

Author: Veronica Roth

Version Read: eBook, because I am STILL waiting for my copy BARNES & NOBLE! I preordered the book hoping I would have it the say of release but no it was shipped on the day it was released. Next time I will just take my chances at the bookstore.

Summary: The Official Synopsis from the backside and inside flap.

One Choice Can Transform You.

Once Choice Can Destroy You.

One Choice Will Define You.

What if your whole world was a lie?

What if a single revelation–like a single choice–change everything?

The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered-fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.

My Feelings:

I had a hard time switching between the two points of view. But I also had the same problem while I was reading Breaking Dawn. I believe this is because while reading these books I am in a Tris frame of mind. It was just what I had come to expect from the books. However, by the end of the book I understood why she chose to write from two perspectives. The book tied up loose ends and answered questions. This book was not my favorite of the three books but it was not bad I would give it about 3 and 3/4 stars. But the series as a whole is totally 5 stars. I recommend this series to everyone.

Thank You:

Thank you Veronica Roth for creating this wonderful and captivating world. Thank you for creating Tris and Tobias. But most importantly, thank you for making us, your readers, truly think.

  1. I gave it 3/5 (I got my copy from BN yesterday). I liked it (and I really can’t believe how people are rating this book on amazon and other sites just because of the ending), but I only gave it 3/5 because it was missing that adrenaline rush I got from the first 2 books, this book was way more informative (which I liked because there aren’t any really unanswered questions) but I missed the pace that was in the first 2.

  2. Yeah. I agree with you. I feel like it was more psychological than physical adrenaline. I actually really liked the epilogue. One of the best epilogues I’ve read in awhile. I usually hate them. Not my favorite in the series but I feel it does it’s job for the series.

  3. I agree as well. I had a hard time switching back and forth but eventually got it down. There were a lot of excerpts that had me in tears or really thinking, but sometimes they felt forced. Overall amazing series, and I look forward to the movie adaptations, but 4 stars was less than I expected for the epic finale. I did enjoy the epilogue though. Very good.
