Didn't read printed
I would change the ending
Divergent and Insurgent
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...
A stronger use of logic, too many times conclusions were made with little or no evidence
Sure, but I might wait for a long time
Well its kind of a spoiler, but how Tris ended up
It seemed a bit odd that there were two rebellions in the same book, it seemed to be repeated too often in the books
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.
I hope not, but I have no desire to invest in another trilogy by this author.
No. They did an excellent job with what they had to work with.
The whole book, from Tris' impulsiveness to Four's absolute loss of self esteeme-it's like someone else wrote this installment.
Just sad, there was so much potential. Take more time- miss a deadline or two, just get it right. Wishing for a redo.
If it is scifi or fantasy I will give it a shot
I would not recommend this to a friend because the story is at best a poor replica of Hunger games
I wouldn't let one series turn me away from any genre
regret paying for the whole series
I was not nearly as fond of the female narrator. She was not very emotional... more robotic.
Tobias, great narration you could hear the emoton.
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.
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.
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).
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.
Good finish to the series. I enjoyed it.
I love books! But my family of 8 leave me little time to read, lol. Audible has been the perfect solution!!!
Yes, I enjoyed her writing. And the narrators were great!
Changed the ending! WTF
Write a review, lol. Obviously it's a must read after the first 2, but be prepared to be disappointed.
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.
They both were fine, however I didn't like them switching back and forth to different readers.
It is worth it if you are a fan of the first book, but books 2 and 3 are just not great books.
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.
I liked it actually I'm just making fun of all the others who doesn't like it.
Maybe the ending was a bit provocative, but it gets a reaction and i couldn't see it ending any other way.
I liked it
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.
*****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.
"Really got you into the story"
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.
Kris because she finally really gets to know herself and finally starts to completely understand four.
The death serum scene .. because it changes absolutely everything.
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.
