Praise for DIVERGENT:
“The next big thing.” (Rolling Stone )
“If you like Hunger Games & Twilight, then get stoked for DIVERGENT! Trust us on this―this baby is going to blow up BIG! And if you chose to remain factionless, then you’re gonna be one lonely soul.” (PerezHilton.com )
From the Back Cover
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.
Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent." --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.See all Product Description

I loved Divergent. I thought the idea and the futuristic 'what if' the future world becomes like this was fantastic. I could not put it down. Then I read Insurgent and although it wasn't as good as the first - a lot of times the second books aren't as good because typically you fall in love with the first book of a series and that's why you read the second. I did love Insurgent too though, the ideas were still clever and exciting and you couldn't see where it would go. You fall more in love with Tobias/Four and you feel for Tris and how tortured she is over having to kill one of her best friends. The ending to Insurgent has me gasping! I knew something was outside of the fence, the fence was obviously there for a reason. But I thought it was to protect the people of some great terrifying evil. However, as you find in Allegiant that is not the case.
I was excited to read this book, I thought it would round off a brilliant series perfectly. I was so wrong. When they get outside of the fence they find that they were in some sort of big brother experiment because their ancestors genes were mutated and 'wrong' and genetically damaged 'GD' and somehow a Purity War broke out (although not explained in full detail). And the only way to fix this wrong gene was to put them all into these 'experiments' and watch them until the divergent 'genetically pure' people with perfectly normal genes start to emerge.
However, I find this idea ridiculous! If you put all the GD people into one location and then they have babies they are all going to be GD's too...their genes will not magically change because they will have the same genes passed from their parents onto them.Read more ›
Like many other readers here, I felt compelled to write a review. This has been on my mind for days and I need to get it off my chest; I'm still having irritated outbursts whenever I think about this book.
Firstly, I really enjoyed the first two and eagerly read them having watched the first film. The story was interesting and held my attention, the characters were unique and likeable. Although there were tragedies and difficult topics, they were dealt with sensitively and with due care and consideration.
Needless to say, Allegiant was not like that. I persevered (had I known the ending, I wouldn't have), expecting that it would improve and fall into place. It didn't. I was genuinely upset at the end. I was left with the sense the whole book was a missed opportunity and the overwhelming feeling that I had been cheated of my time and money. I felt the characters had not received a just and well-thought out ending. Unsurprisingly, I have several complaints that made this book an actively negative contribution to my reading experience.
Firstly, we had Tobias' voice. This could have been brilliant. He's an engaging character; damaged, courageous, kind, fiercely loyal, all the things that make someone appealing in YA fiction. This was the first missed opportunity, the first hurdle at which our author had some inexplicable problem. Tobias was (amazingly) terribly boring. There was nothing distinctive about his voice. I kept having to check whether it was him or Tris, such was my confusion. I do not suffer from a short attention span, it was just poorly written (why? I don't know, there was nothing in the previous books that suggested this would be the case).Read more ›
I didn’t like the way the chapters kept switching between who was narrating their actions. Picking the story up mid chapter I often had to try to remind myself who was doing the talking. Is it Tris? Is is Tobias? Arrrgh! And speaking of Tobias, the action hard man has turned into a bit of a wuss.
This trilogy didn’t go out with a bang so much as it fizzled out with a whimper. It’s a shame really because it started out well. It just couldn’t keep the pace going. I won’t be bothering with any of the side line books. I don’t think I’ll even bother watching the first film because I now know that the series isn’t so much a roller coaster ride of excitement and is more of a Sunday drive out with elderly relatives.
