Book Review: Allegiant by Veronica Roth

Book: Allegiant by Veronica Roth
Genre: YA Dsytopian
Rating: ★★★☆☆
For: Fun
From: ebook from library

While it's been an interesting series, it hasn't been my favorite of all, so it's taken me awhile to finally get to this, the last book. But wow, everyone sure talked about it when it came out and so I was curious to find out for myself what exactly happened.

This book sees our heroes, Tris and Four, venturing out of the boundary of their city, a future Chicago, to see what the world behind looked like. They discover a group operating in what used to be the airport in olden days, and they end up staying with them and joining their cause. It's here that they learn all kinds of crazy things about an "experiment" and how the factions came to be and a bunch of stuff about good and bad DNA. The more they learn, the more they begin to wonder what's really going on here. It gets very tricky to know who are the good guys and who are the bad.

Once they finally decide who's side they are one, they make a big move. And things do not go as planned, to say the least. And that's all I'm going to say about that!

But the book does have an ending, one that I can deal with, one that has closure and all. The series was exciting and crazy and sad and yes even swoony in parts, but still, not my favorite dsyopian tale. However, I must say that after seeing the trailer for Divergent, I'm quite excited about the movies.

Bottom line: A fitting ending to a crazy fun series.

Other Reviews: 

Was it my favorite? No. Insurgent definitely holds that space, but I did like it. From Book Twirps

The action was nonstop and exciting. From Beth Fish Reads

I would define it as the weakest of the series, but I will continue to recommend this trilogy to all of my reader friends. From Good Books and Good Wine

And then there is the narrator alternation. I don’t mind this at all, as long as one can see a distinction between the characters. In this book, with the strange morphing of their personas, I kept having to turn back to the chapter beginning to figure out who was talking, Tris or Tobias. From Rhapsody in Books


  1. I loved Divergent, but I felt like the series went downhill quickly. I'm not sure what happened, but for me, books two and three were progressively less great than the first one. I'm interested to see what she does next though.

  2. It wasn't my favorite series either.
