Allegiant (Divergent, Book 3) (Divergent Trilogy) Kindle Edition
The new 10th anniversary edition of the bestselling YA series--This text refers to the paperback edition.
Praise for DIVERGENT:
“Riveting … A memorable, unpredictable journey from which it is nearly impossible to turn away.” Publishers Weekly
“This gritty, paranoid world is built with careful details and intriguing scope. The plot clips along at an addictive pace, with steady jolts of brutal violence and swoony romance. Fans snared by the ratcheting suspense will be unable to resist speculating on their own factional allegiance. Guaranteed to fly off the shelves.” Kirkus Reviews
“With brisk pacing and lavish flights of imagination, Divergent clearly has thrills, but it also movingly explores a more common adolescent anxiety – the painful realisation that coming into one’s own sometimes means leaving family behind, both ideologically and physically.” New York Times
“The next big thing.” Rolling Stone
“Thrilling” US Weekly
“A taut and shiveringly exciting read! Tris is exactly the sort of unflinching and fierce heroine I love. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.” Melissa Marr, bestselling author of Wicked Lovely
“Divergent is a captivating, fascinating book that kept me in constant suspense and was never short on surprises. It will be a long time before I quit thinking about this haunting vision of the future.” James Dashner, author of The Maze Runner--This text refers to the paperback edition.

New friends, enemies and unknowns are introduced to the reader with frequent alacrity by the author to widen the spectrum of the story telling. By the half way mark there have been no massive emotional shocks (ie deaths) but the reader is jolted out of their chair by one or two (or three) massive revelations which will guarantee the mature reader a long, lengthy and hugely enjoyable read.
A lot of reviewers have criticised the story as dark, depressing and unnecessary violent. It is easy to assume this comment is valid on one level, but given the dark (ie broken) nature of the world the story is set in, one canÃ¢(tm)t genuinely expect anything bright and rosy to emanate from the words which magically appear (and then disappear) on your kindle screen. If anyone is to blame for pitching such a less than flavoursome tale at our younger generation it would be the publisher and not Ms Roth herself. And who are we to suggest that within a handful of decades, this tale set in the alternate United States of America wonÃ¢(tm)t compare favourably to the miraculous work of JRR Tolkien? That was set in middle Earth which was on the edge of cataclysmic death, destruction and the loss of everything its inhabitants knew and loved. It was a dark and stirring tale which featured battle scenes of violence, cruelty and remarkable gruesomeness. One difference is that in Tolkien's world the reader knew who the bad guy was right from chapter two. (Chapter one focused on Bilbo's eleventy first birthday). One could say the reading experience in this dystopian tragedy is enhanced given that the reader, and even the characters in question, donÃ¢(tm)t learn the identity of their true enemy until well into book three. Kudos to the author for that.
I am just passed the half way mark of this book. I hereby award it four stars. I have heard favourable comments concerning the book's ending, so i may well update this review in a collection of heartbeats. But read on, keep the faith, trust no one apart from those you love.
And please, Four and Tris, stay true.
Ok the book is finished. And so am i. The ending of this book will shock you. Many will not like it. I loved it. I was stunned by it. I was hurt by it. And i was emotionally destroyed by it. The final fifty or so pages of this remarkable trilogy are the most surprising and unexpected pages you will read this year. But like i said earlier, a broken and severely damaged world wonÃ¢(tm)t produce a garden variety fairy tale.
Shakespeare, eat your heart out.
Well done, and thank you, Veronica Roth.
Full marks for this new age, genius piece of story telling.
Very entertaining, even if a bit far fetched. I was well and truly wrapped up and wanted to keep reading.
The first 10%, Loved it. Similar to the first two, full of action and excitement. So far was really happy. From about 10% through to 75%, hated it. Boring, slow and just seemed to drag on. I understood the need for what was happening but I wasn't happy about it and was bitterly disappointed. 75% to 100% mouth hanging open, box of tissues glued to my side. Loved it. Wasn't thrilled about how it ended at all but I suppose that is what Veronica was aiming for.
So 4 stars because of loyalty to the book and beginning and ending of the book but only four stars because the middle just sucked. Still obviously worth the read, just be prepared.
I take my hat off to Veronica Roth, what a marvellous story teller. I hope book 2 & 3 are made into films.
But a film never really does justice to the book.
Again, congratulations to Veronica on a brilliantly written story.

Many times i had to skip back a few pages as it is fast paced.
This last book was more tricky to keep up with, flipping between Tris and Tobias as first person.
Overall a fun read which converted well into the films, which incidentally are the only films of late that our two will actually watch together!
Why, why, why, why did Veronica Roth kill Tris? It's horrible. I hate it. She had finally found proper strength with Four- Tobias- and then she dies, just gone. And Uriah. just gone. Everyone we loved: gone. She's dead, and what happened to that will to live? She just decides to die. Great. It's so sad. And it's a horrible plot! I admit, the Chicago and US part was a nice plot twist but we never NEEDED to know what was outside the damn fence. We never needed to know about the Bureau. We didn't need Tris to die, Uriah to die, the memory serum to exist. I hate this book. Absolutely loathe it. It ruined my favourite series and it was the 1 slight contested for the HG!
I'm not sure that I have fully processed how much the author has affected me, and I'm not going to lie, I was and still am completely shocked by the decisions she made for each character. But is why it was such an amazing read. I couldn't have predicted half the things that happened (something rare for me when I read) and although the decisions may have temporarily knocked my mental stability (😂) I can not fault her for a moment. Unlike the first two books, we get Tobias' (four) perspective as well as Tris' and that definitely contributed to the story from the way we, as readers, experienced two views on subject, to the way that Veronica Roth showed raw emotion through the characters that I have grown to love...
She brought together ideas of grief and love and sacrifice and created an enraptureing story out of it. I don't think I have ever read such a fictional and fantasy styled book that has made me this emotional.
Veronica Roth, despite making me cry and sniff with sadness, wrote with such a passion and love for her characters that I will definitely be recommending this to others.
