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

Publisher's Summary

What if your whole world was a lie?

What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything?

What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?

The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times best-selling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of listeners in Divergent and Insurgent.

    "Good wrap up till the end which sucked."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Allegiant to be better than the print version?

    Didn't read printed


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would change the ending


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

    Divergent and Insurgent


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If possible


    Any additional comments?

    Ms. Roth committed a very serious author's sin. I can't say because it would ruin it for you if you haven't read it but I hated the ending...

    "I am not the target audience"
    What would have made Allegiant better?

    A stronger use of logic, too many times conclusions were made with little or no evidence


    Would you ever listen to anything by Veronica Roth again?

    Sure, but I might wait for a long time


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Well its kind of a spoiler, but how Tris ended up


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

    It seemed a bit odd that there were two rebellions in the same book, it seemed to be repeated too often in the books

    "Huge disappointment"
    What disappointed you about Allegiant?

    This book comes off as a rushed, jumbled mess. The long awaited answers make no sense and the shift of focus from Tris to Four is disjointed making the 'loss' meaningless.


    Has Allegiant turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I hope not, but I have no desire to invest in another trilogy by this author.


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

    No. They did an excellent job with what they had to work with.


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

    The whole book, from Tris' impulsiveness to Four's absolute loss of self esteeme-it's like someone else wrote this installment.


    Any additional comments?

    Just sad, there was so much potential. Take more time- miss a deadline or two, just get it right. Wishing for a redo.

    "disappointing and not worth finishing the series"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this to a friend because the story is at best a poor replica of Hunger games


    Has Allegiant turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I wouldn't let one series turn me away from any genre


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

    absolutely nothing


    Did Allegiant inspire you to do anything?

    regret paying for the whole series

    "Great series, wish it ended differently."
    Where does Allegiant rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I was not nearly as fond of the female narrator. She was not very emotional... more robotic.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tris.


    Which character – as performed by Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford – was your favorite?

    Tobias, great narration you could hear the emoton.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried, I actually felt like I was mourning for Tris. After reading the first two books in the series three times for the course of two years, I felt like I had lost a dear friend. Very sad with the ending- and everything turned out so ordinary.

    "Great finish to an entertaining trilogy"
    What made the experience of listening to Allegiant the most enjoyable?

    I was not happy w/ how weak the author made Tris in book 2. She did a better job and making Tris's character stronger. I HATE wimpy girl character's.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Allegiant?

    I was surprised at the end. Don't want to spoil anything for you. Didn't think the author would have gone that route. I guess it left it open for ( future stories).


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

    I have not listened to anything else Emma and Aaron have done, but I would get another book performed by them. They did a good job and they were very entertaining.


    Any additional comments?

    Good finish to the series. I enjoyed it.

    Changed the ending! WTF

    Write a review, lol. Obviously it's a must read after the first 2, but be prepared to be disappointed.

    "It is alright, not great."
    Would you try another book from Veronica Roth and/or Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford ?

    Maybe


    What was most disappointing about Veronica Roth’s story?

    The story in books 2 and 3 are not great. The main character turns into a douche and screws over her family and friends at every turn. The story in this book seems forced and odd, like the author didn't know how she wanted to end it. The flow of the story in books 2 and 3 are odd. Unlike the first two books, this book swaps back and forth between the main character and Four, also the readers switch. I didn't like this. The chapters from Four's perspective didn't add much to the story, mainly it just lengthened the book.


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

    They both were fine, however I didn't like them switching back and forth to different readers.


    Was Allegiant worth the listening time?

    It is worth it if you are a fan of the first book, but books 2 and 3 are just not great books.


    Any additional comments?

    Books 2 and 3 seemed forced, I think a slightly different ending on the first book would have been an ideal way to sum up this series. This series suffers from the same issues as The Hunger Games books, great first chapter, then less compelling sequels.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I liked it actually I'm just making fun of all the others who doesn't like it.


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

    Maybe the ending was a bit provocative, but it gets a reaction and i couldn't see it ending any other way.


    What didn’t you like about Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford ’s performance?

    I liked it


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

    nothing


    Any additional comments?

    nope

    "A kick in the teeth"
    Have you listened to any of Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I think Emma Galvin did a wonderful job, again. It took me awhile to get use to Aaron standford but I do feel he needs to work on his female voices.


    Any additional comments?

    *****Spoiler-ish**** although if you read the book it wont take you long to figure out what is coming.

    Lets start with the good. I think Emma Galvin did a great job. I think there was some good messages in this book and the first persons diction and patterns where their own person.

    On to the bad. The moment we are introduced to Fours point of view it sets off alarm bells. Really, why else do you think the author would change up her methods, in the last book, and try to get you to attach yourself to another character? We already know she has no issues with sugar coating things. Second issue with this is that the Four we get in this book is just NOT the same Four we had the other two books. This also makes it a bit harder to get into the book because your grasp on most characters and their relationships are shaken up. I do feel part of the reason Four is not as strong in this book is because the author was having a hard to trying to make him different from Tris and wanted to show growth in character.

    The pace and atmosphere of this book is different for the first two. It will also not satisfy anyone's curiosity BUT the author did at least wrap it up and didn't leave too many loose ends. I felt the ending was weak and not likely given all the information we do know. We already knew they where locked into their area but I think a plot more like The village would have lead to a better ending and given the author more to work with. I'm guessing the movie will reflect an ending more like that.

    While I do feel there are some very good messages in this book I think a lot of it was told vs shown and some of the YA readers might not pick up on it if they felt as detached from the characters as I did.

    Where does Allegiant rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I likes the narrators, the book was different because it is from two perspectives. It was done very well and is up there with the audiobooks I listen to.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kris because she finally really gets to know herself and finally starts to completely understand four.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The death serum scene .. because it changes absolutely everything.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The end really got too me .. still not sure if I love the end or hate it

    I really wasn't sure how Veronica Roth was going to be able to finish this trilogy. I couldn't see where it was going to go.
    Then I started to listen and while I don't feel Allegiant is as gripping as her first 2 novels in the series I felt she dealt with the storyline well and took it in a good direction.

    "An emotional rollercoaster..... pass the tissues."

    From the start of the book we follow the stress full relationship of Tris and Tobias as there world grows and changes but conflict never fades. Both have to face the crushing realisations of their parents passed lives and the effects on them now. The choises they make now not only affect their lives but those of their closest friends. It reaches a pinical as Tris realises just how much she loves Tobias and wants to always be with him but knows she has to protect her brother.
