It's life plain and simple this is what a book is supposed to do transport you and allow you to feel every emotion that the character is feeling.
A little similar to hunger games
Just read it. The answer to this question is the same for everybody
I read the reviews before purchasing this book and I saw a lot about how upset everybody was it all ends and some even talking about how four transforms into a weak person. These people I don't think know what it's like to be in a similar situation. Every action and mood he experiences is very close if not dead on to what you or I would go through. You can't stop after 2. read it. It's no spoiler yes it is sad yes you will most likely cry but it's amazing. Do I like how it ended no but I do love the book and will recommend it
This trilogy keeps up an amazing pace! Very fun to listen to.
I have loved these books and the narration by Emma Galvin. However, Aaron Stanford's performance I didn't love. His voice is nice enough, but he is so monotone and doesn't show a lot of emotion. He reads a gunfight the same way he'd read trimming his nails or filing his taxes. I just don't think it was the right narration for an action-packed story.
Never trust anyone who doesn't enjoy reading.
Yes, and I have. The Divergent series is amazing!
Tobias, because it's Tobias.
It's always wonderful to have a male and female narrator for a book. It just gives the story so much more.
Omg are you kidding me? If you read it you would know while I'm still sobbing.
Omg the feels!!! Roth, you kicked me right in the feels!! I don't know if I wanna hug you or punch you right now! **sobs uncontrollably**
Yes, I loved the author and the narrator. I would definitely read another book of Veronia Roth and listen to Emma Galvin again.
The whole book was very slow which was completely different compared to the first two books. Even though the ending was "realistic" I did not care for it. I like to have my fairy tale, happily every after endings.
Emma Galvin is so wonderful to listen to. I read the books and listened to them and I prefer to listen to her vs. read them. She brings them more to life.
I plan on seeing all the moives
I read the reviews from many others before I listen to this. Even though most of the reviews I read described a sad ending for a potentially great trilogy, I decided I would not allow those reviews to taint my experience. I really enjoyed the first two books because the story was intriguing and narrator was awesome. Allegiant, overall, was a good book. This book really didn't offer anything new, it was more of the same whether inside or outside of the fence. The fate of the beloved heroin was disappointing, but knowing the character, predictable. This book offers no cliffhangers, no intrigue or suspense that make you want more. It certainly was not bad, but it wasn't great either.
In pursuit of truth, justice, and an end to spoilers!
(So naturally here I am writing one. But don't worry, this will be completely spoiler-free!)
I’ve been struggling with the best way to review Allegiant. I think the best way is discuss it as lightly as possible.
AVOID ALL THE REVIEWS! Spoilers would ruin the story, and this is one of those books where everyone will be tempted to spill the beans! Seriously, if you’ve gotten this far you already know if you want to continue, so close your eyes and put in your earphones and go for it.
Now, without giving anything away, I’ll say these few things. The first book in the series showed us Tris’s view of the world through a very close lens. The second book still showed the world through Tris’s eyes, but expanded the focus outward – her world expanded a bit. This third book shows us the broadest view yet. The camera lens has gone wide focus, and part of that includes showing us the world through Tobias’s eyes. Tris and Tobias take turns relating the story to the readers, giving us their inner thoughts and impressions along the way, which is why there are two narrators this time around. It’s very well done. I loved hearing more from Tobias, and seeing how Tris and Tobias try to embrace their chosen values from different directions.
If you avoid reading anything in advance you’ll have no idea where this book is going. You may think you do at several points along the way, but the road to the end result takes a few dramatic turns. I can see why the reviews are so very mixed. My own opinions on the way things ended up are…divergent. I can see several sides but don’t want to risk saying more than that.
Overall, this was very good, not quite great, and never the least bit boring. Left me a little bit stunned. The narration was excellent, and if you’ve read the previous books than you already know if you want to read this too. Now close your eyes and run away from the vast sea of potential spoilers!
I would, so that I can pick up on any details I may have missed. Or if I ever feel like revisiting the story, I would listen through all three, for the sake of completing the storyline.
The back story explanation of the factions, the projected future of the city, and a glimpse at how the healing has progressed. It would have been a much poorer ending without the epilogue.
Both Triss and Tobias.
Christina (or Cara?) confronting Tobias at his home.
I would have been much happier if there had been a miraculous recovery.

I really loved the characters in Books 1 and 2. I bought this book on pre-order because I just HAD to know what happened. After reading this one, I wish I would have just let myself generate my own ending. Since I did not have any reviews to work off of, I had to just get through it on my own, but I have to say, I kind of regret it. I understand the moral message in the story, and maybe in a society like ours, youth should understand that messaging, but if that's the case, the story should not have been written as it was in the first 2 books. It seemed very inconsistent with the writer's style.
(The performances, on the other hand, were great as usual.)
Narrators were great. Story was good, but had more potential than how it ended up. Not nearly as good as the first 2 in the series, but worth reading.

I feel this was a good book and Mrs Roth had many unexpected twists in the book. But unfortunately I was left empty after reading this.
All I can say is wow.
No ive not listened to them but they were a good duet.
Ya I had a feeling of disappointment
