Josh Swensen is not your average 17-year-old. At the age of two, he was figuring out algebraic equations with colored magnetic numbers. He is a prodigy who only wants to make the world a better place. Josh's wish comes true when his virtual alter ego, Larry, becomes a huge media sensation. Larry has his own Web site where he posts sermons on anti-consumerism and has a large following of adults and teens. Meanwhile, Larry's identity is a mystery to everyone.

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.

Would you try another book from Veronica Roth and/or Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford ?

Maybe not from Veronica Roth. This was a disappointment compared to Divergent and Insurgent. I absolutely loved Emma Galvin though. She did great. Aaron Stanford did well too.

Do you think Allegiant needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

NO. NO WAY.

Any additional comments?

I think I'm in agreement with others that the big event at the end ruined it. I thought this book was okay, but when that happened it was automatically ruined. I don't recommend this book to the lovers of Divergent and Insurgent. Just move on.
