Audible Editor Reviews

Editors Select, October 2013 - Speculative fiction has emerged as the most popular subgenre of YA literature in the last decade or so, helping to patently defeat the dire predictions that kids these days just wouldn't care about books. Veronica Roth's Divergent trilogy has become an almost iconic addition to this cannon. Insurgent, Book Two in the series, ended with an M. Night Shyamalan-worthy twist that has kept me and the other fans here at Audible biting our nails - making the arrival of Allegiant all the more exciting. Luckily, Emma Galvin, probably the best YA voice talent going today, returns to narrate along with a surprise male co-narrator chosen by a fan-vote. I hate to state the obvious but if you were sucked in by The Hunger Games series (and come on you know you were) then you need to check out Divergent. And to top things off, it's about to be a blockbuster movie. —Emily, Audible Editor

    "What if your whole world was a lie..."

    ...or your first two books? Everything Roth wrote in the first two books is a lie and as a reader you end up feeling as confused and cheated as the characters. The reader who buys into the character development might enjoy the slow pace of this book as Roth delves into Trice and Four's differing reactions to the truth. But if you bought this book based on the fast-paced action of the first two then you will find this sequel with it's navel-gazing teenage narrators to be painful and unsatisfying. Thankfully Audible let's you listen at 2x or 3x speed.
    Two questions to ponder:
    Can Veronica Roth's career recover from sucker punching her readers?
    What are the odds that the Hollywood studio head that bought the rights to this series is searching for a gifted screenwriter to re-write the last third of this trilogy?

    "I can't believe it ..."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    NO SPOILERS
    I simply don't know were to begin the story was slow pace, repetitive and It had nothing to do with the previous books (witch were great) I kept waiting for the story to pick up but it never did. And although I really wouldn’t have minded the slow pace and the turn the author gave to the story to explain what was outside the city in exchange for a great ending what I got was just so, and I mean, SO disappointing that I can't believe it . WHY? What was the point to end it that way? So to answer the question I would say that in order to give 3 stars to this book (don't think it could reach 4 stars) I would definitely change the last chapters.


    What was most disappointing about Veronica Roth’s story?

    The ending.
    IT. IS. NOT. FAIR. I feel betrayed, angry, sad and frustrated.


    Have you listened to any of Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I’ve heard Emma Galvin in other audio books and I think she’s an exellent performer.
    I haven't heard Aaron Stanford before but think he made a good job.


    What character would you cut from Allegiant?

    All the characters in the bureau, specially David


    Any additional comments?

    I definitely DO NOT recommended this book I just can’t do it.

    "KILLED THE HOPE AND LOVE IN ONE STROKE OF THE PEN"
    What disappointed you about Allegiant?

    SPOILER!! An author who does a good job by pulling the reader into the characters really well had better not KILL the main character at the end of a trilogy!! What were you thinking?!?! There is no hope, no continuity, no love. That is no way to end a story of this nature!!


    What could Veronica Roth have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Rewrite the ending!!


    Have you listened to any of Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    They were wonderful!! I have never heard these two before but I would recommend them.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Allegiant?

    Get rid of the characters that need to be and keep the ones that do so that we have a glimmer of hope and the thought of love withstanding anything put in our way!!


    Any additional comments?

    Stop with Insurgent if you don't want to ruin the whole story for yourself!!

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The first two books were great. This book did not have the character development the prior books had. This book seemed hurried and unfocused.

    "Um....What? Are you kidding me? Betrayed!"
    Where does Allegiant rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I loved the first book and thought the second one was pretty good. I looked forward to the movie that was coming out. Then I listened this one. I thought Aaron did well stepping into the voice of Four and I did all right with the perspective jumping back and forth. But then we got to the.... I guess I'll call it the Big Plot Twist. I get that Roth wanted to be different and not follow convention, but I actually had to go back and listen to the Big Plot Twist again because I just couldn't believe that it was what it was. It soured the whole story for me, and I actually tend to like this sort of plot twists in many of my other books, but NOT in a YA fantasy and NOT from a first person narrator. I feel it violates actual writing convention and storytelling and immediately throws your reader out of the story. Honestly, I can only think that the producers of the movie Divergent found out about the Big Plot Twist and said, "Oh crap, there goes the franchise..." I might give Roth another try in the future, but I would certainly be a lot less trusting of her narrators....

    "Unexpectedly Disappointing"

    I was waiting with considerable anticipation for this third book in the series. I was initially hooked by the circumstances and characters presented in the first two books, but by the third book, the level of poor decision-making skills manifested by the "heros" was just too overpowering.

    I won't include any spoilers, but any author needs to take a hard look at the consequences of making such a story choice to end their tale. There was no driving need to take the course that was taken. Maybe the characters we too focussed on their internal struggles to realize that there were several optional courses of action available to them that would have resulted in a much more satisfying outcome for the reader.

    The book started off by undermining much of what had been previously presented that made the story so compelling. And while the characters were trying to absorb these changes, they repeatedly took drastic actions based on very little information that ultimately lead to tragic results.

    The book began to feel like the author was using the plot to drive the characters to a place she wanted to them to be when it was all over, rather than the characters driving the plot.

    On a side note, I noticed this series is being made into a feature film (probably 3), but so much of what happens is the internal struggles of these characters (especially in this book), that it's going to be a challenge to put it on a screen.

    The readers' performances were excellent.

    "One of the most disappointing endings to a series."
    What would have made Allegiant better?

    This is a book that struggles to keep the core concept of earlier books and often seems to re-write them by inserting material that doesn't agree with earlier content and removing characters and ideas. In fact, the book goes so far as to subvert the behavior of groups that completely change for the negative how you would perceive the first two books. The final two chapters are amongst the worst endings of all time. Without spoilers, let me say great authors have worked that trick.. Card, Rowling, etc. but they do it in a way that provides some emotional satisfaction to the audience. This is one of the most unsatisfying endings of all time.


    What was most disappointing about Veronica Roth’s story?

    The ending is rubbish.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The first few chapters as we get narrative from Four's perspective.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really. The readers are quite good, too bad the material isn't.


    Any additional comments?

    This seems as though a better editor or an outsider reader was badly needed, but the rush to get a book on the shelves befoe the movies hit the theaters appeared was on.

    "What a horrible way to end the trilogy..."
    What disappointed you about Allegiant?

    I HATED the ending... It was completely disappointing... The book had the potential to be so amazing. The ideas were great but the delivery was horrible.


    What could Veronica Roth have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Well, she could have made the ending a lot better. I'm not going to spoil it for you, but it made me feel like reading this series was a complete waste of my time. I also didn't like how she just randomly added Tobias' perspective in the last book but when I got to the end I realized why she had to do it.


    Have you listened to any of Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't but I loved both of their performances, especially Emma Galvin. She was the perfect voice actress for the trilogy.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Allegiant?

    THE ENDING!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Just don't waste your time with this series...

    "A major let down."
    Was Allegiant worth the listening time?

    No. a complete waste of time.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the first two books of this series only to be disappointed by the third. I don't mind the tragedy that occurs, not everything can end happily ever after. I do think it could have been done with a little more flare and be more meaningful. I have a hard time believing what was done was enough to stop the government from continuing the project.

    It just seems from the very beginning of this book, the author has ran out of gas and is scrambling to keep the plane in the air long enough to find a freeway to crash land upon.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    NO. The whole series was wasted time because of the horrible ending.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Book Thief


    Did Allegiant inspire you to do anything?

    Never read another Veronica Roth book again.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't want to spoil it for you. If you have begun to read it...reader beware. If you have not read it...Don't!
