About ALLEGIANT (taken from goodreads.com)
One choice will define you.
What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?
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.
Review of ALLEGIANT
Well first of all, I know that this book has only been released for a day but yes I am finished. I had a problem. I can’t put books down. Ever. This one was worse because I’ve been waiting for it for a very long time.
It was worth the wait.
Oh my gosh. That’s all I really have to say. This book was brilliant. It was a perfect yet terrible ending. It made me cry and hope for some silly magic twist. Which never happened by the way. The character that die, stay dead. And the author is not afraid to kill off characters. I’m so glad this series ended the way it did. So many dystopia books try to have a happy ending where the world is perfect. That’s too unrealistic though.This book finished realistically and I really admire Veronica for that. It was still a typical dystopia book in the way that everything leads up to a big rebellion against the government, but the comparisons stop there.
Talking about the characters for this book is hard for me because for some reason I’m not as attached to them as I usually would be. The characters are great though, they develop nicely and have good and bad qualities which makes up the perfect character. I just wasn’t attached to them. Maybe because I respect them instead of absolutely adore them? It’s very possible. This aren’t the fall in love kind of characters. They just aren’t.
I don’t know what else to say except that I am incredibly happy with how this turned out. Well done Veronica Roth.
