1.0 out of 5 stars The book was fine, but the ending!, 30 Dec. 2013
This review is from: Allegiant (Divergent, Book 3) (Hardcover)
WARNING CONTAINS BIG SPOILER!
When I finished reading this book I think I cried a little. I couldn't get over the ending! So I read Veronica Roth's explanation of why she thought the ending was "necessary". She said that Tris deserved a more powerful ending than just living happily ever after, and I agree with that, but I don't see the need for Tris to die completely. As she is dying Tris has a conversation with her mother, then Tris lets go and "gets drawn into her mother's arms". She sacrifices herself, truly, not just self-annihilating like she tried in the first two books, thinking it was sacrifice when really it wasn't. But here she learns how to truly sacrifice,to go to show how much you really love someone, and dies to learn that. However I think she have had something like that moment in Harry Potter and the deathly hallows when he sacrifices himself, he talks with Dumbledore and chooses to carry on living. In here near death induced haze Tris could have had a similar moment with her mother, learning what sacrifice truly is, still growing up like Veronica wanted, while then being able to make the choice to return to her living family, because she tells Caleb to tell Tobias that she didn't want to leave him.
Veronica said that when Tris almost died at the ends of the first two books, it didn't happen because it wasn't right. Well the death at the end of this book wasn't right either!
