Maybe not from Veronica Roth. This was a disappointment compared to Divergent and Insurgent. I absolutely loved Emma Galvin though. She did great. Aaron Stanford did well too.
NO. NO WAY.
I think I'm in agreement with others that the big event at the end ruined it. I thought this book was okay, but when that happened it was automatically ruined. I don't recommend this book to the lovers of Divergent and Insurgent. Just move on.
I'm all for a non-conventional, no "happily ever after" ending, but this one was a real bummer. I think it would have been significantly better if it ended differently.
I love the first two books, but there's nothing worse than an ending
that puts a damper on your feelings about the entire series!
As I began listening to "Allegiant" (after seeing the previous two movies in the series) the verbal intrigue, the skilled, descriptive writing and professional, expressive reading kept me engaged for the entire 11 plus hours. Veronica Roth's imagination joined with her precise word crafting made the 11 plus hours a joy. Her insights regarding human nature ring true to experience. I now want to buy the first two books in the series!
It was a decent finish to the series. I didn't care for each chapter switching viewpoints like it did, but I do understand why the author set it up that way.

Satisfying to the last. The Trilogy continues to develop while exploring the main themes. Narration uses male and female voices in a unique way.
Allegiant is pretty darn good for a book that is getting shoved onto shelves in the midst of a teen dustpan Sci-fi series bubble (which is my way of saying, good raw story that could have used more refinement with the publisher). my main issue with this audiobook is not the story is with the female narrator (there's a male narrator to who is fine) who reads the book the same way 1st grade teacher reads a picture book to a class--emphasizing every minute detail as if it's the biggest deal in the world. it's painful.
