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?

A scientist in training with her head in the clouds. With no time to read but plenty to listen, audible has changed my life forever.
Eh. I'm in science and love genetics and all that but...this is just a silly ending for a story. Not to mention the annoying dark brooding between Tobias and Tris. I think this series might have been better as a stand alone novel. Maybe.
The very end of the book was surprising though, so that redeemed it.
I want to feel good when I complete a story & am a little harsh on depressing ones. There are a few sad ones that I love but not many.
I really hoped this would wrap up the series and now I see a presale for book 4. I don't see where this story can go. I don't know if I will be listening to book 4. I didn't like this one as much as the rest. I think the plot was a little weak and I didn't care for the ending but it was worth it. I feel like any others in this series might be a stretch.
I did not like them adding the male voice for Tobias as I was use to his voice from Emma and it was difficult to get use to the change voices depending on perspective. Also, the ending did not seem to make sense and was anti-climactic. I did not even get emotionally involved with the death of Tris, I just thought, "This is stupid and has been a waste of time." I was looking forward to this book and now I wish I hadn't started the series.
The interaction of the characters and the radical switch in the behavior of the characters from the previous books.

It ended and I have finished the series and there was more than once I wanted to just stop the book completely.
What I mean from my title is that the first book was Great, the second book was Okay, and the third book was Disappointing.
Just ignore the negative reviews, seems like many of them wanted a different kind of ending. If you're into the post apocalyptic dystopian thing this will be right up your ally. I loved the plot twists, all the development of the 1st two books really sets you up to understand how the characters feel in this one. The only thing I felt could have been better was some of the monotony of the characterization, I felt through all 3 books that the characters' personality traits were very described in a repetitive manner.
The first two books were good but this one was so bad that probably I would not.

The narration was okay but the conclusion of the story was a horrible.
The first two books built a good story. It was like the last book was written by someone else who had no idea how to tell a story so they rambled around until the book was mercifully concluded.
Odd combinations of characters were thrown together and suddenly were life long friends. Characters personalities in the first two books also suddenly changed in the last without explanation. It was a rambling mess of a conclusion to the story. Overall, the series was an interesting story through the first two books. However, this book seemed as if the writer had no idea how to end the story and as a result ended it so badly that it ruined the entire series.
Learning more about Beatrice's mother was intriguing. Beatrice admires her mom and strives to make choices that reflect her mother's positive influence--not always an easy task for the daughter as she struggles with her own desires.
Watching the subplots unfold for the Pryor and Eaton families was memorable. Particularly significant was the symbolism of Tobias' blue waterfall sculpture -- his parents related to it better than they related to their son.
Two favorite scenes: The moment Beatrice joins her mother. The trip Tobias takes down the zip line. They just had to be.
"Can they survive the truth?"
Based on other reviews (there are valid points in the reviewers' criticisms), I almost did not purchase Allegiant. I'm not sorry I did buy it. Hearing the third book allowed me to "complete" the series. The two narrators bothered me more than anything since it kept mixing the characters up in my head--but after reaching the book's climax, I understood why the book was produced that way.
What made the experience of listening to Allegiant the most enjoyable was the outstanding performances by the narrators. There was a female voice for Tris and male voice for Four so that made the story more realistic and engrossing.
The reason I started listening to Allegiant is because I love the Hunger Game series so much! The Divergent series is similar to the Hunger Games series, but very unique and different in its own way.
No I have not, but I would love to hear them perform a story again.
Yes, I would have loved to listen to it all in one sitting. However, that would be impossible for me since I have a full-time job :)
I loved this series so much! I wish I could find another series to listen to that I would enjoy as much as I enjoyed this one!

Not sure what I wanted the ending to be, but it wasn't this...I may have been hoping for a more positive - happier ending. Though it wasn't the ideal love story I was looking for more color and less dull hues.
Trice, her strength and perseverance are so admirable.
When she stepped up to take the place of her brother.
Not as much as the first two. It tended to drag on like the ending was uncertain.
I felt like the ending was made up as a last thought. Just seemed to want to get it over.
i would say it was some ok spent time... i sort of rushed through this trilogy because my gf was reding it as well and since i dont have that much spare time for reading such books... i decided to go for the audio book and i dont regret it.
it is better than the 2nd book but i think that this boot aims 100% to an femaile audiece... i cant quite link with the thoughts of 4, he is most of the time to feminin and i offten found my selve thinking oh thats how a women would think a man must think... and that was not very apealing to me... the tris part on the other hand was much better than in the second book.
i dont think so... it was an ok ending and as i said i dont likeed the part where we got a look into 4's head... its way to feminin...
and i belive that's one of the reasons why i realy think about buying the four book twicce right now and i'm not shure if it yould be worth my money.
