This being the final book in the series, I had great expectations for it. I probably shouldn't have. It was an ok ending to the series BUT not up to what I was hoping for.
Possibly the first 2 where good
Every which way but dead
We where led through 2 fair books with great possibilities for the finish but not happening in this. By the end I was glad it was over
A sad depressed person who isn't looking for a beautiful story with a happy ending.
She could have thought about her readers, her target audience and what they may have wanted in an ending to this story. A good author should think about the fans and what the fans would want. I feel like she thought only of herself and unfortunately it ruined the entire series for me. I will not be reading any other books written by her.
Their performance was fine. It was the story that ruined the entire experience for me.
I would not recommend this book to anyone!!!!

I don't really know where to begin. Lets start by saying Trice never really pulled me in as a reader. I was never like so involved I would say but after all the suffering all the drama, all the shooting and the attacks. YOU WOULD THINK, that she would have a happy ending. Like literally all the people you hate end up in one way getting off and all the key players ( if still alive! ) kind of get an okay ending? The ending was just resolved and then the world hit RESET? Four???? He is just alone on the other side of the city in a dark space? At least Roth didn't match him with Christina because I think that would have just really plunged the knife down.
I would read the reviews before reading another Roth book. This one was just too disappointing.
I loved the first book and ended with a good feeling after finishing the second. But this one - yeesh. This book totally destroyed the two main characters. I was so excited when I purchased this book only to be very sad and disappointed wishing I hadn't known there was a number three at all.
Four should have remained strong. What he became didn't seem in keeping with his personality up to book three. And the end just needs to go.
Both narrators voices drew me in and made me want to continue to listen.
No not really. It ruined characters that I had built up a great love for in the previous two books.
I'm a high school English teacher, partner, mom, daughter, sister, and adventurer.
If I'm supposed to buy in to a fabricated state of the nation, I need more background as to why and how it became that way. I also needed more information on how and why Tobias would decide to return and stay.
I didn't really like how in the 3rd and last of the trilogy, the format was changed to include a perspective from Four. I felt like it was a cheap ploy to sell more books in the hope that people would buy the supplements
After listening to even 1 of the books, it bothered me how she emphasizes her "p" sounds. (picky, I know). But listening to someone read is a bit intimate and if the voice bothers you... well, it's hard to keep listening to.
The ending was sad.
I liked the plot and really wished it had been written better.
As more of a tangent story line, Ms. Roth attempts to answer the outstanding questions of the Divergent series through the introduction of too many new and complex turns for so late in a series. That unfortunate choice makes the story seem rushed and unsatisfying despite being the final book in this aspect of the series. Furthermore, both the main and auxiliary characters' personalities change rather too abruptly for the reader to believe their changes of heart are organic to the story or true to the human experience. Finally, while I understand the reasoning behind splitting the story between Tris and Tobias, this was another unwelcome change too late in the series that made, at least initially, the story's structure a bit perplexing.
I have a hard time reasoning with the fact that the average rating on the story part of this book was 4 stars. Don't get me wrong, the narrators did a fine job, but not only is the whole thing hollow but I kept waiting for some decent explanation for what was happening. It seemed too far fetched and disorganized. The Truman Show theme just didn't jive with me or the other books and the characters morphed sooo much that it was just too unbelievable.
Every time I start to type my thoughts it gives too many spoilers- so I'll just say BAD ENDING. Especially the way this one was handled. If I want sadness and meaningless disappointment, I'll read the newspaper.
Ummm. Maybe the Caleb forgiveness scene... but even then...
I kept hoping, but alas- no.
Stick with the first 2 books and don't bother with this book. It doesn't belong with the others- except for the characters have the same names. My life would have been better NOT reading this book. Kind of like Mockingjay... hmmm...
So much potential and so much disappointment!! I loved the first two books. The character development for Tris and Four really drew me in. I won't parrott all the reviews that say essentially the same thing.
Why take a story that could be so encouraging and awe-inspiring and flush it down the toilet? I. just. don't. get. it.
Rather than remembering this series for bravery and hope, I am left with an overwhelming hopelessness. Bad form Veronica Roth! A waste of my time.
this is a great listen if you like your heart strings pulled. or if you're a guy: cry like a little b***! lol it sounds a bit odd when you hear another voice(Four's) but, you get used to it quick. its also a bit of a SHOCK and a let down but, all books need to end. I don't want to give away anything. the overall story idea is good, I just wish it was stretched out or maybe a five part series. I'm a dude and I cried like a b**ch! EXCELLENT TRILOGY!
