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

    "Great Final Book For A Great Series"

    I really enjoyed this book, and thought it wrapped up the series very well. I totally disagree with the other reviewers who said it was a terrible ending to the series. They must have been expecting a classic "Hollywood ending," and that simply wasn't possible in a book (series) like this. Overall, as much as I enjoyed the Hunger Games series (and it may be unfair to compare the two series based only on the grounds that they are both dystopian YA novels about teenagers who live in societies broken into rigid groups), I think this series was superior. I'm left still thinking about the final book, and a story that lingers with you is always a sign of a great book. The narrators were also very good. Sometimes the Tris narrator could be a little grating, but overall she was good. I thought the new narrator who read for Four was great. Perfect voice for the part (though only when he was narrating his own character; his narration of female characters wasn't terrible, but wasn't great either -- probably because his own voice is just too low to begin with). 4 to 4.25 stars.

    Laughing, crying, loving this book! The only problem with loving this series so much is that I listen thru it so quickly!

    "How to fail at writing a book..."
    What would have made Allegiant better?

    The main problems with this book have been expressed before, but I'll make a short list:-characters not well developed or consistent or believable-the whole idea of the factions is just silly and does not follow human behavior. The behavior of the faction members was often nonsensical.-Tris is unlikable - juvenile, self-indulged, snarky. By the end I didn't care what happened to any of them, especially Tris.The writing was choppy, and I never felt the flow of it.Sometimes I found myself just laughing out loud at how ridiculous some of it was.Sigh. If so many say these books are good, I'm worried about our future generations...


    Would you ever listen to anything by Veronica Roth again?

    Nope. She's already made way to much on this crap excuse for a book.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It was like listening to an over-indulged, spoiled teenager. Honestly annoying.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm seriously regretting having used my credits on these books. Waste of my time and money. Oh well.

    "Great book-unsatisfactory ending-Fantastic read."

    I'm sad it's over. I would've read many more of this series. But all good things right? This last installment by Roth tugs @ the heart strings far more than the first 2. Some characters you want to die-live while some you want to live-die. This is not a neatly ended TV show. It gets messy. It gets real. You will laugh. You will cry. You will continue thinking over this book long after your finished reading/listening.

    It is made my top 5 fav books/trilogy list. Buy it!

    I just read a review saying 4 turned into a whimp. I don't agree. Trauma, heartache, PTSD changes a person thus I feel Roth gave 4 real life, human qualities.

    "Very emotional but a great ending (spoiler)..."
    What did you love best about Allegiant?

    I really liked how the characters of Tris and Tobias matures into a kind of personalities that you get to love and respect. The story ended in a more realistic fashion and was not over the top or predictable. Tris who was not willing to forget Al in book one and desperately needed forgiveness from Christina in book two finally gets the chance to forgive her own brother and make the ultimate sacrifice. Tris is a true hero with a character that is so easy to fall in love with. In the wonderfully written final chapters, you get to feel the pain and the hollowness that Tobias feels and how desperately he struggles to go on in spite of the loss and because that's what Tris would have wanted him to do.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Allegiant?

    The chapter that Tris and Caleb talk about their childhood memories, when she finally decides that she cannot let her brother walk to his death. This was the scene that you get to truly understand who Tris Prior is.


    What about Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford ’s performance did you like?

    They were both excellent.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Don't know.


    Any additional comments?

    The story in the final book was darker, complex and more suitable for adults comparing to other books you typically find in this genre

    "Profound Bravery"
    What made the experience of listening to Allegiant the most enjoyable?

    I loved the voices- Emma Galvin's, especially. I don't believe the ending was a cop-out. Roth hasn't taken the easy way out, and the last two chapters bring home some of her truest ideas about the slow, every day bravery that we all face when confronted with grief.

    "Don't judge an entire book by its ending"
    Where does Allegiant rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    *No Spoilers*For such a young author, Veronica Roth has written a compelling novel filled with philosophically interested ideologies and a captivating storyline. It's certainly not the best novel I've ever listened to, but many of the dystopian ideas she introduced in Divergent and Insurgent are further explored and questioned. It's not surprising Allegiant received such mixed reviews. I myself, hated the ending and felt it was unnecessary and almost out of place. I suppose when you write to young adults, there's an expectation that your book will finish with butterflies and rainbows and everything will be sunshine. Allegiant is not as violent as Divergent, nor is it as dark as a Stephen King novel, but the ending was not a walk in the park. Don't let negative reviews and pained comments stop you from enjoying Allegiant, while it's not masterpiece of century it does have a great story line and worth listening to (especially if you've read the first two novels)


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Allegiant?

    The ending.


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

    I really liked their performances.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The truck ride with Four's old friend and Tris, we're his friend gives us a little glimpse of Four's past.


    Any additional comments?

    The PG-13 make out scenes are really lame. I know this isn't 50 shades of grey but seriously CPR dummies get more action than them.

    "Fitting Closing to the Series"
    Would you listen to Allegiant again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen again. I enjoyed the story and the narrators' portrayal of Tris and Four.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tris is my favorite character. But, she's probably most people's favorite character. So, I will say that Tobias was my favorite. Roth's words brought his inner self to light, but the narrator brought him to life.


    What does Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Both narrators embody the characters' personality, emotion, and inner struggles with their portrayals.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A gripping conclusion.

    Story
    "What kind of sick joke is this."
    What disappointed you about Allegiant?

    I was excited for this long awaited third installment of Veronica Roth's Divergent. This book however was seemingly written by someone else. It fell far short of what I believe it could have been. The story line is nonsense, it sounds as though the narrators are making it up as they go along. GD vs GP, you've got to do better than that. The ending is bizarre and seemingly hastily written. It's not just that it's sad, it's bad. Too much emphasis was given to the analysis of forgiveness, sacrifice and redemption, rather than rational congruent plot. Great analysis nonetheless was given to these elements which should be appreciated.


    What was most disappointing about Veronica Roth’s story?

    The ending was not awesome. After all the nonsense Veronica put us through she had to tear our hearts out. Then, Genetically Pure Vs Genetically Damaged wtf is that? I couldn't buy into the symbolism.I don't want to ruin it for future readers but there is plenty to disappoint.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Emma Galvin is a stellar narrator, hands down. Can't complain about her. That said, the perspective change with the addition of Aaron Staford reading the perspective of Four seemed unnecessary but was refreshing.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Roth does a great job of asking questions about what people are made of, specifically how and what our experiences and genetics may or may not play a role in self discovery. I wish there was a more complete exploration of nature vs nurture in the book.


    Any additional comments?

    If Veronica Roth rewrote this book I would read it. She is a great writer, this book just didn't fit.
