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

    "A 'GD' Mess"

    Forgive my play on words in the title for those who aren't acquainted with the GD/GP story line of the book.
    I think the best explanation for this book would be, this is what happens when you plagiarize someone else's book/idea. Book one in the Divergent series was a good book but it borrowed extremely heavily on the formula for "The Hunger Games." It even used a lot of the same symbolism but wrapped it up in a slightly different package. Book two was pretty good as well as Roth tried to create her own imagining of THG. However, by book three, Roth's lack of imagination and creativity are exposed when she is forced to pursue her own narrative one hundred percent. This book plodded on and on and was loaded with exposition. It was boring and listless in much of the story. I read another review that stated Roth seemed to be trying to make a deadline which I agree with completely. This book was poorly thought out. It felt rushed and yet was so boring at the same time. There were gaping plot holes and completely unnecessary tangents. My guess is Roth was under pressure to complete a full novel and just loaded it up with extraneous chatter. "Here's your book. CHA-CHING!!!"
    The performance was very good, given the subject matter. I found the narrator for Tris to be especially good and the Tobias Narrator held his own.

    ***********SPOILERS BELOW*******************

    Without being too obvious, Roth wrote herself into such a bland hole that in the end, the only card she had to play was the eventuality of what happens in the weapons room. It reached a point of "something shocking has to happen because nothing has really happened." Normally, in a long series, when you connect with the characters you feel crushed at such a dramatic and final turn of events. "How could this happen????" you would say. You would emote, you would feel pain. It's like these characters become your friends and their loss is yours. I felt none of this when the weapons room sequence ended. I was thinking, "Huh, that's one way to end it" but never felt any emotional tug.

    "Good, Not Great"

    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.

    "Good but not great"

    I had so enjoyed the series. This was good but did not live up to the other books and was not the great closing I was hoping for.

    "Everything I hoped it would be..."
    What did you love best about Allegiant?

    That it was written from both Triss and Tobias perspectives


    What did you like best about this story?

    The intricacies of the relationships between Triss, Tobias, their parents, friends and the government


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

    Their narrations gave just enough emotion without overbearing, truly knew how they felt and how you would feel in 'their' position.


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

    definitely, it kept me awake at night and made me late to work on a few occasions.


    Any additional comments?

    Perfect Conclusion to an intense story. Will have teens considering their place in the world, how they act and how they treat others.

    "Not a fan of the ending but still a decent book."
    Would you listen to Allegiant again? Why?

    I probably wouldn't. This was the finale, and I wasn't happy with the ending so I will just stick with being done.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Veronica Roth? Why or why not?

    Of course. I overall loved her series. I'm ready for more.


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

    Not sure. They did a good job.


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

    If I could have I would have, but it was too long to have had time to do so.


    Any additional comments?

    Start with Divergent!!

    "Disappointment!"

    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.)

    "Not as great as the first two in the series"

    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.

    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    All I can say is wow.


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

    No ive not listened to them but they were a good duet.


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

    Ya I had a feeling of disappointment

    "I had mixed emotions"

    I read a review that said, in essence, "don't get the 3rd book". I couldn't disagree more. True, I was a bit troubled with the beginning of the book. In my mind, the characters were on an adventure to a place that was dramatically different than that of the author's. I could relate to the characters feeling a little unsure and anxious. I liked the alternate perspectives as the story is told by Tris and Tobias. Both Emma Galvin's and Aaron Stanford's performances were great. I would highly recommend the series.

    "Really got you into the story"
    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

    "long waited for:"

    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.
