Review: Allegiant by Veronica
Author: Veronica Roth
Publisher: Haper Collins
The third instalment of the Divergent series. I won't post a synopsis of this one because spoilers.
I've seen a lot of people hate on this novel for the ending and I understand it. However, I loved the ending. I felt it really wrapped up the series and in a way was almost cyclical. Those who've read it will know what I mean. Four really went back to his roots.
Yet again though Four didn't listen to Tris. For God's sake man believe her! I really felt like my heart was ripped out again and again in this novel. I really liked the new characters, particularly Matthew. I found the new settings really interesting too. They really threw a spanner in the works.
I felt that the introduction of Four's narrative was interesting but highly confused me to begin with. I now understand why it was necessary. I like seeing how he thought and reacted to things as before this we only got to see how Tris perceived it.
Overall I enjoyed this and felt it was a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. Even though it had me in bits.
Have you read this?
