Allegiant (Divergent, #3)

Allegiant  - Veronica Roth This was so hard for me to read, especially that I already knew Tris was going to die. It was a great burden for me to get to the finish line without shedding a tear. Why did it have to be her? It was such a great loss. And poor, poor Tobias. I knew he was devastated just as I was.

Allegiant came in a fast-paced plot and everything was just rushing in and out until it went to a point where I became confused so I had to go back and reread the whole paragraph again.

I saw the alternating POVs and it almost made me gag. I noticed that Ms. Roth was trying to get the two thoughts strummed together harmoniously so that we could get both sides but sadly, it didn't work. She did perfect the whole process. In fact, it was too perfect that the two voices sounded alike and it did not help me like the story more. Even when I got to see Tobias' thoughts.

I DID NOT LIKE THE ENDING. Aside from the fact that Tris died, the whole thing came out forced and utterly disbelieving. It would have been so much better if the deaths that occurred were justified and actually worth dying for. In all honesty, Ms. Roth would have done better.

I'd say it had a bittersweet ending. Such a shame that my favorite character no longer existed. Really. I would have given this a four or five instead. Sigh.
