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 )
“A taut and shiveringly exciting read! Tris is exactly the sort of unflinching and fierce heroine I love. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.” Melissa Marr, bestselling author of Wicked Lovely
“DIVERGENT is a captivating, fascinating book that kept me in constant suspense and was never short on surprises. It will be a long time before I quit thinking about this haunting vision of the future.” James Dashner, author of ‘The Maze Runner’
“Well-written and brilliantly executed, DIVERGENT is a heart-pounding debut that cannot be missed. Tris stands out in her action-packed, thrilling, and emotionally honest journey to determine who she wants to be in a society that demands she conform. It’s dystopian fiction at its best!” Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of PARANORMALCY
“A memorable, unpredictable journey from which it is nearly impossible to turn away” – Publishers Weekly
“Divergent holds its own in the [dystopian] genre, with brisk pacing, lavish flights of imagination and writing that occasionally startles with fine detail.” – New York Times
“ A masterpiece of epic proportions and an outstanding debut novel.” – Narratively Speaking Blog
“Be prepared to sit on the edge of your seats as this heart-pounding thriller hypnotises you until the very last page.” – Fantasticbookreviews.com
From the Inside Flap
What if your whole world was a lie?
The thrillingly dark conclusion to the No. 1 New York Times bestselling DIVERGENT trilogy.
What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?
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.

There are shades of Huxley’s Island in this book with the factions as some kind of experiment in a better way of living, as well as Big Brother and 1984. We also learn more about why the faction system was established and there is an even greater sense of manipulation and control. For Tobias the polarisation is taken even further with both parents being on opposite sides with Tris following Marcus at one point.
The concept of a memory serum is fascinating and a more subtle form of control than the simulation in the previous books. Here memory can be wiped and a new version of history taught. Peter tries to take this a step further and banish his more aggressive and negative traits, but the suggestion is that they begin to creep back. This is the basis for the old argument of nature verses nurture in relation o the formation of personality.
Having both Tris and Tobias’s perspectives enables a deeper understanding of their relationship. It also highlights the difficulties and sources of conflict in most relationships – friends, family, forgiveness, jealousy and makes some very profound comments about the nature of forgiveness.Read more ›
I would get half way through paragraphs, only so realise that it was now Four, not Tris who was the narrator, or the other way round. They both sound/read the same. Other authors have done it, and pulled it off, but they made the narrative style of the two protagonists so different that it was easy to tell who's view point we were seeing the action from.
Tolkien managed multiple plot lines in the Lord of the Rings with little or no confusion.
Ian M Banks did it brilliantly in "Feersum Endginn" (Fearsome Engine) by using conventional spelling for one charaters narrative, and the other haf ov it foneticaly speld. U noo hoo waz torking, it was obviuz.
Some of my expectations were met - I had already realised that the city (Chicago) was some form of experiment part way through book 1 - the gates were locked to keep people in, not out. A bit of a let down.
TO be fair, Stephen King can not write the last few pages of most of his multi-million selling books either. 600 pages of excellence, followed by the ending "So I hit it on the head with a rock & killed IT."
