Allegiant by Veronica Roth Review

This is the final book in the divergent series and I have been looking forward to reading the finale after finishing the end of the second book, but other books seem to have come first. Anyway it is time for a review.

Story

he 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 meaningliess. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend to complexities of human nature – and of herself – while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.

Taken from Goodreads

This is the first book in the series that is told from two points of views, Tris and Tobias. I personally think it brings a new lease of life into the series as instead of just getting told what Tris think Tobias is thinking about everything we actually get to find out. It makes you wish that the author had put this in the two previous books especially seeing how he becomes a major character.

This book is different and also the same as the first two. By different I mean it has a totally different setting and different characters but it is also the same as even though they have left the city they are still facing similar problems in their new home. This gives the book the familiar feel of the other two in the series with the same main characters that we love but with a new twist that makes the book a lot more interesting and making you want to read on.

However even though it does make you want to read on doesn’t mean you don’t get bored very quickly. The first 100 pages I enjoyed and the same can be said for the last 100 but the middle 300 I was just bored shitless and was struggling to read on, I only did so, so I would be able to finish the series. A lot does happen in the middle 300 but it basically the same as the middle 300 of the second book and fells like a copy and paste job with different characters being included.

The writing itself is good and the author does a good job of describing everything to perfection making it very easy to imagine what the new area looks like as well as the new character that were introduced.

I personally think you should only read this book if you want to find out the ending, if you aren’t really that bothered then I wouldn’t bother as the ending becomes very predictable within the first 200 pages and you are simply reading along to find out what you knew all along.
