17383918Goodreads Synopsis:    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. 

Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.

My Thoughts:

-    I can see why people had a hard time with this book, but overall, I thought it was good.

-    I didn't like switching between Tris and Tobias's POV. It was confusing at times, and it took me a while to get used to Tobias. In the end, I understand why the author did the alternating POVs though.

-    There were some boring parts in the middle. I felt the characters were just talking about a lot of info. There was a lot of telling and not as much showing. All the info was important though, and I don't know how else the story could have explained everything.

-    The main thing that bugged me about this book was how Tobias and Tris fought like children. It was so immature, and it really bugged me. I felt like Tobias took a big step backwards in his maturity. He kind of threw fits, and the stuff that came out of his mouth was so dumb.

-    My honest opinion of the end is that I'm okay with it. The decision Tris made was very much in her character. I felt like all three books were building her character into making this decision. Her parents would be proud of her.

-    The author is gutsy!

-    As far as the overall problem with the government and the people, I didn't feel like it was totally resolved. I still feel like the whole civilization could still turn into turmoil, and I would have liked the characters to resolve the whole government and gene thing. 

-    Overall, it wasn't amazing, but I thought it was good.

  1. I agree with you on so many things! I understand why there was dual POV but I liked Tobias a lot more when I wasn't in his head. :) I felt like the book was a mix of info that felt disconnected from the other books, and then Tris & Four bickering. I actually really loved the ending, though. I've always wanted to read a book where the author goes that way with the plot.

  2. I just can't finish this series. I hated the first one.

  3. I too feel like Tobias went backwards in his awesome-ness. Overall, the series was just okay for me too... I didn't love it, I didn't hate it. That being said, I'm looking forward to the movie anyway!

    1. I am too!! We should get a group together and go!

  4. I didn't love this book. I felt like the group was trying to fix way too many things at once. I mean ... wow. Plus the chance the author took at the end didn't do it for me. I think by the reviews I've seen half the readers like it, half the readers don't.
