Allegiant (Divergent Series Book #3) By Veronica Roth
Rating: 3 stars out of 5 stars
Allegiant is the final book in the Divergent YA series written by Veronica Roth. I was so thrilled with the first book in this series, in fact it received a 5 star rating from me. So you can imagine my excitement going into this last book.
However this quote from this last book sums it up well,
“I suppose a fire that burns that bright is not meant to last.” ― Veronica Roth, Allegiant
My Allegiant Goodreads Review
I was ‘meh’ with the book and the story line direction. Such a promising series and it was still good mine you, as I continued to read it to the end. I was left unsatisfied with the tragic twists and turn aspect of the plot. The author does stay true to the main character Tris Prior, but in the end I felt jilted that this was it, kinda like:
Book Quotes I Enjoyed:
“I wonder if fears ever really go away, or if they just lose their power over us.” ― Veronica Roth, Allegiant
“There is a difference between admitting and confessing. Admitting involves softening, making excuses for things that cannot be excused; confessing just names the crimes at its full severity.” ― Veronica Roth, Allegiant

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Yes, this is a dystopian book, but I can’t compare to the Hunger Games because I didn’t read the Hunger Games *Gasps *Hissing. I know. I know. I tried but couldn’t get into that story. This story tho – GREAT! I read this 501 page book in a 24 hour period and couldn’t put it down. I’m usually not one to pick up a dystopian style story, so the fact I got taken with this one is making me reconsider – or that the author, Veronica Roth, weaved a great tale despite it.
I really enjoyed the political themes of the book as well as who a person chooses to be versus how others expect them to be per the cultivation of a particular virtue. Great story arch and conflicts abound to keep the story moving forward at a good pace. I really enjoyed the characters and the journey of growth.

My Book Review
“I feel like someone breathed new air into my lungs. I am not Abnegation. I am not Dauntless. I am Divergent.”
“Becoming fearless isn’t the point. That’s impossible. It’s learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it.”
“Politeness is deception in pretty packaging.”
