All the Feels, you guys… and no spoilers ahead.
Don’t think I’m just now jumping on the train. I’ve been a Divergent fan since the get go—and though I didn’t read this book the day it came out. I read it pretty darn close to it.
I’ve just had to take some time to think it over. Series enders guys—they kill me.
I checked out a copy from my local library. I was not compensated in any way for my words (cross my heart) nor did I promise a good rating. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine.
“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. “
There are no words to say.
For fear of spoilers with this book, I will not be saying much today. Honestly, I just want you to go read it. You have to experience this book–this series is amazeballs.
I picked up Divergent two years ago when I fell head over heels into dystopians and from the beginning, this series has been my favorite. By far. (Yes, even more so than The Hunger Games.) So ideally, I had this nice little scenario playing out in my head about what would happen with the ending.
It didn’t happen.
I will tell you three things though:
1. I wasn’t too crazy about the conceptual world Roth revealed. I sort of had that bit of letdown I felt with Reached. I think it’s because my imagination is ridiculously crazy and so I was expecting and anticipating so much more. It wasn’t bad, just different.
2. I definitely did not like the duel narrator. I mean, I love Tobias and all, but half the time he was talking I thought it was Tris. I know it’s because the first two books are from her perspective so I was used to her persona. Tobias was just…eh. Tris, as usual, was fabulous.
3. The ending. ALL THE FEELS you guys. I’ll let you figure out which kind though.
Blah. I’m in the middle ground where another trilogy I have loved has ended, and I’m not sure how to move on in my book life. But I will manage.
Perhaps I”ll even re-read this one.
Pick this read up if you like…
Dystopians, post-apocalyptic worlds, kick-butt heroines, Chicago, crazy conceptual stories, worlds that are falling apart, ALL THE FEELS
Then when you’re finished, try….

Book Talk: Have you read Allegiant yet? (Again–why am I even asking?) What did you think? A good ender? Satisfied? What did you think would happen?
