So I actually finally finished Allegiant this past weekend after reading it for months--I started reading it when everything at work changed and it is really hard to find time to read a book.
Author: Veronica Roth
Genre: Dystopian/YA Fiction
Rating: 4 out of 5
Why Did I Read? Well I read Divergent (see review here) and I read Insurgent (review to come on Day "I"). I really wanted to know how it ends. And I had heard interesting things about the ending.
Summary: (Note if you haven't read the other two books, this might contain spoilers of those...they have become one long story to me.) We follow Tris and Tobias outside the fence to figure out what is out there and what they are suppose to do. They are surprised when they learn the truth about their own existence. Tris feels like she has walked into another world just like hers--will she change it or just let the status quo remain?
What Did I Love: I loved how everything was explained in this book--that's why I have got all three of them in my head now. She takes all of the loose ends from the first two books and really ties it all in a bow. I actually really did like the big ending. I won't say it here to avoid spoiling it for others--but I accidentally came across the ending to the story right before I finished the book. And I actually wasn't too surprised, I kind of saw it coming. I loved the theme of the book that really came out through the end and she had some great quotes and writing at the end.
What Did I Hate: I really didn't like the perspective changes with the chapter changes. I get why she did that now that I've read the whole book, I don't think she could have done it any other way. But it was very disorienting and it took me awhile to get use to it. Towards the end I would still see the character name at the chapter heading...read a few pages and then go back to the chapter heading to make sure I had the first person right. I wonder if a third person would have made it better....I doubt it but that would have helped the confusion.
What did you think of Alleigant? I haven't seen the new movie yet, what did you think of that?
