Editorial 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

Don't know if I would recommend this one

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

The writer in the first Book, and most of the 2nd was great. The narrators were awesome also. However in the last book it was just too much. I think the story should have ended after the 2nd if anything.

Has Allegiant turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, but may have turned me off from the movie.

What Is The Point

What disappointed you about Allegiant?

Everything. The story just didn't make sense with the path the other 2 books were leading. It makes you wonder what the point of it all was?

What could Veronica Roth have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

She could have written a better ending. Also, I didn't care for the 2-person point of view. If she wanted to tell the story from Four's point of view, she should have either started out the series that way or she should write the story over again from that point of view. It would make her a lot more money.

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

Emma Galvin has done a great job so far as the voice of 'Tris.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The narration was good on the audiobook, but no, the book had no redeeming qualities. I wish I had never read it.

Meh

Personally I wasn't expecting much. I enjoyed Divergent, but thought Insurgent was just flat filler and didn't do much to move the story along. So going into Allegiant, I only wanted to know the ultimate outcome. Which I got(was expecting such an ending after the brouhaha the fans were in the first few days after it came out), and I can't say I felt much for the major characters. I was more moved by the minor ones.

Overall, I feel indifferent. The series fell flat and ended without a bang.

Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford did a fantastic job narrating it though.

GD vs GP = Epic Fail...

***NO SPOILERS***

I am really struggling on what to write in my review. I would really say 1.5 stars rather than 2. There is soooo much going on in this book and I was really hoping for the end of the book to go in a different direction. I don't think this book holds true to the first 2, instead of filling fulfilled and happy at the conclusion I just keep thinking of all the other ways the book could've ended. This book just really depressed me I had so much hope for what could be I'm just so upset with the direction Veronica Roth took. It's her book though!
I agree with another reviewer who said that she just wanted to get the third book out before the movie hit theaters.
What does everyone else think?

Happy Listening!!

Meet the new boss, Same as the old boss

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

People who disliked the first two books.

Has Allegiant turned you off from other books in this genre?

No

Which scene was your favorite?

Insight into who was watching the city

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Really struggling to come up with something.

The voice actors did a great job.

Any additional comments?

The follow up to the climactic ending to Insurgent was a tremendous let down. I got the same feeling as I have to "it was all a dream" type endings. Also, to think that the mysterious people beyond had ALMOST THE SAME PROBLEMS as the ones inside the city is naive. It's like there's a formula that was repeated one too many times. There were so many ways this book could have unfolded to have given more meaning, significance, and insight to the world Veronica built. Instead, you got a book that droned on too long in some scenes and sped through others, did not require reading the first two books in the series, and a story with so many situations where you're left thinking "well if they were smart enough to do Y, then why wouldn't they have thought of X or W?"

Bottom line, I felt unrewarded for having read (or listened to) the first two books.

Voice actors were excellent.

Left me empty!

Where does Allegiant rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Okay, now I realize that in every book there is a pivotal moment but I really wish that it was not THIS! I was completely heartbroken to hear that what I longed for would never happen. I was first deeply disturbed that the male voice and perspective was brought in (especially when Aaron Stanford portrayed a woman) but after a few chapters I grew to appreciate Tobias's perspective and his input to the story. The previous books were fully of action and romance while this book was more about each independent character and I feel that this was leading up to the conclusion. There were many important aspects revealed but none as impactful as the first two books. After I listened to the last word of the book I am longing for more, but as we all know there is no book like Divergent and the short stories are nothing close to satisfying.

Good story hated the ending

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes! The ending I thought it was awful and should NOT have happened. I realize maybe the author wasn't going to right anymore books for the series but she didn't have to end it like that. Now I don't have to watch the movies cause I know how the stories going to end.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the storyline a lot I thought it was good, it was just the ending that bothered me the most out of the whole thing.

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

I loved it they were very clear spoken and good at changing their voices when it came to changing to different characters.

Was Allegiant worth the listening time?

Yeah I think it was I enjoyed the first two books.

Any additional comments?

I think it should have ended WAY differently.

Decent ending to the series except for one thing.

I really enjoyed most of the book EXCEPT FOR THE END, it was totally unexpected. That's all I'll say about it.

The use of two narrators was different than the previous books. It's interesting to see Tobias/Four's point of view.

Both Emma and Aaron did a great job with narration.
