Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent
So, finally I have finished reading the last book of the Divergent series!! YaY! And I own all of them too which is awesome~
Anyway, so this book was quite interesting as it was written from two perspectives- Tobias’ and Tris’. At first I found it annoying and quite confusing but eventually I got used to it. I was really interested in the plotline as finally they managed to go into the outside world. I wasn’t quite sure what I was expecting, but it certainly wasn’t that.
The Bureau were rather….uhh I don’t know how to describe them actually. But I found the idea of people being “genetically damaged” ridiculous. Just like Tris said, I expected being Divergent meant something…more significant. But seriously? Just because you have a special gene? How ridiculous. They also made a lot of people suffer because of this idea. I mean come on, everyone are born with different genes, it’s not a bad thing. Also, you can’t explain people’s behaviours merely because of their genes. I was happy when they decided to overthrow them. Although, I’m still not quite sure if I agree with how they did it. I mean, I know they were desperate since their whole city are in immense danger. But…..erasing everyone’s memories is not pleasant. But anyway it happened so……
The characters themselves are lovely as usual. Tris and Tobias has some trouble along the way….with them not exactly trusting each other and all that. Tobias was being stupid for trusting Nita, but the way Tris acts sometimes can also be a bit….uhh yeah. But anyway, they resolved it in the end so it was all good. I also felt like they were trying to fix their broken relationships with their family. For example Tobias with his parents. I wasn’t surprised when Tobias felt conflicted as his father was only banished, not sentenced to death. Also, despite everything Caleb did, Tris still saved him multiple times. I guess this shows that no matter how much you hate your family, they are still your family. In the end, you’ll do anything to save them. I thought that idea was nice.
Also, this book made me love Uriah more! Hahaha what is it with me and liking supporting characters? Ahh to bad~~
But seriously, Uriah is awesome. He always was pretty cool since the beginning, but I liked him even more here. Pity that Zeke didn’t leave with them because I like him too.
But oh my the ending…….TT^TT
Ugh it was horrible! Oh, no spoiling the ending, right, gotta remember that.
But anyway, I can’t believe it! Actually, I can but why?? Aww not those two!! Tch. Either way, it was still a wonderful book. To be honest, it’s not my favourite book out of the series, but I still liked it nevertheless. I’m glad that I was introduced to this series early on, and I enjoyed it ’till the end. Thank you Veronica Roth, for writing a wonderful series.
So, what I’m trying to say is, if you like dystopian books, with a little bit (uh maybe more than a little?) of romance and adventure, do read this book. I can’t promise you’ll love it as much as I do, but it won’t hurt to give it a try right? ^^
