By: Veronica Roth
Wow Veronica Roth delivered an amazing conclusion to one of my top favorite series. I really loved Allegiant and I just can’t stop thinking aboutit! It left me speechless.
Allegiant picks up briefly after where Insurgent left off. The faction system is crumbling and Tris is given the chance to go outside the fence. Roth has done an excellent job with developing these characters through the course of this series. Tris is definitely on my list of top protagonists. I like that she has been affected by everything she has seen and lived through because it makes her more realistic. She is this strong girl, but she still has her flaws and weaknesses. I also felt thatI really understood her motives and decisions in this book.
Then I loved that Allegiant was also told in Tobias’ point of view. He is another character who has come so far since Divergent and has been developed really well. I loved that reading his point of view gave me some new insight into his mind and motives. I also really loved how the relationship has grown between Tris and Tobias. Then I loved getting to see the return of some of my favorite characters, like Christina, and getting to meet some new characters as well.
From the moment I started this book, I couldn’t put it down. I was completely captivated from the beginning to the end. The plot had action, romance, and twists that I didn’t expect. The alternating point of views flowed really well and made the story move along more quickly. I also loved learning even more about this world and seeing what was outside the fence. All of my questions were definitely answered. Then I have to say that in this book especially, Roth’s writing was beautiful. There were so many times that I would pause to write down a quote.
Overall I loved Allegiant! It made me smile, laugh, and cry a lot. I plan on rereading this series over and over again very soon. I certainly won’t be able to forget this world and the characters that Roth created.
