Allegiant: 4 out of 5 stars

Divergent series book 3

I’m sad that this series is over but I’m glad I got to live in this world for even a little while.

The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered – fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.

This tweet from John Green sums up my feelings about this book perfectly:

john green quote

From start to end, the build up in this book was fantastic! But I have to say that while a lot of people were let down by the ending, I thought it was completely fitting for the world in which these characters live…and it was also rather refreshing.

With the gang now outside the wall, the book takes an intense turn when they meet new comrades and new information is revealed, information that shatters what they thought they knew.

Like many people, Tris and Four are one of my favourite couples and what I love about their relationship throughout is that they let themselves be flawed with each other. Watching them fall in love across the trilogy in amongst all the strife was really beautiful. I have a lot of respect for Roth for not throwing a love triangle into the mix as it was clear from the start that the two were soulmates.
