Book review of Allegiant (Divergent #3) by Veronica Roth



Synopsis:

What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?

Review:

This book, just like Mockingjay, is very difficult for me to review. I just have way too many feelings and I just want to speak briefly about the book as a book reviewer and not as a fangirl.

*clears throat*

First of all, this is a dystopian series. It's actually in my top three favorite dystopian series of all time. It's not a romance novel. There is romance in it, but that's not what this story is about. I reread the entire series before reading Allegiant, after spending two days with these characters and watching their growth along with their struggles, I think it ended perfectly, in a way that was genuinely true to the characters.

As a writer I understand that with good writing, there is a message to be delivered. And Veronica Roth delivered this message. "Be brave." and "Don't let your fears run your life."



With that being said, I will admit that there were slow parts during the book that dragged and honestly had me confused. I really feel that a huge chunk of the beginning/ middle of the book was unnecessary and was just too much for this installment.  That's why I rated 4 stars instead of 5.


Needless to say, Veronica's writing is beautiful and she did the Mexican cha-cha on my heart. But I still love this series.

  1. Oh Em Gee! I still haven't started it. I don't know if I'm ready to let go of the Divergent world.
