Ten Hours laterWhen I don t like a series ending I tell myself it s partially my own fault that the book suffered from my expectations In the case of Allegiant I think it went a little beyond that Hours after finishing and sleeping on my crushing disappointment I have to admit that very little of this book worked for me So I m turning to the device that I always turn to when I m stressed or overwhelmed with something lists As always in a review of this nature there will be MASSIVE SPOILERS for all three books in this series I m using a cut and it means very definite business Things that Did not Work for Me in Allegiant a Lis 15 StarsBooks are a magical thing They et you invested in people worlds scenarios that aren t even real or plausible and they make you care about them If done correctly I should say Allegiant was certainly the final book of a hype copter of a series that left millions of readers invested Like a few other books this past year it ha If in your story the word Darkness Creeping genetics could have just as easily been replaced with the word magic or voodoo or pepperoni your premise may seriously need some rethinking Why do I care Well education took me on the path from biology to medicine and so I don t take fcking withenetics lightly Well now against all odds and against my self preservation sense I finished this series And it was not very Herzblut (Alexander Herz, good Really it wasn t It could have been somewhat salvageable if only the author was able to recapture the unabashed mindless fun entertainment that Divergent was able to pull off But alas it lost the fun aspect completely and what was left when entertainment was removed turned out to be insufficient to fill the resulting void Instead this book just serves to cement how this series was poorly thought through from the beginning unsure of its own premise uncertain of its message unsure of where it was supposed to be headed disjointed in its ideas and concepts and never becoming a coherent whole Just to clarify my disappointment has nothing to do with the widely publicized controversial ending or at least not with the part of the ending a certain character s fate view spoilerTris dies and that part was not that unexpectediven her semi suicidal inclinations and sudden introduction of Tobias perspective in the story hide spoiler Click Here to see the full review After Reading I just don t know how I feel right now Before Reading Edit 3 Here s another awesome cover by a fan 3 brilliant work Edit 2Ok this is so freaky 600 likes Waking Nightmares guys awesome

will be One Choice Can Disinfect You Okay that s a lieLOL I may never be happy ever againThe fun and laughter is over I have finally read Allegiant and I feel empty inside Empty but accepting and understandingThis book makes Mockingjay feel like Dr Seuss I had a few problems with it mainly that it spelled out a bit too much for the reader lacked finesse with the handling of themes and was sometimes pretty predictable but the character development was breathtaking the plot was heart pounding and since it s a young adult novel I think Veronica Roth did a pretty damn decent jobMost readers are Youre the Boss! going to love itYou know what Whoives a shit about the technicalities We re all here crying read sobbing our eye sockets dry because of that ending Veronica whispered threats into my ear aimed a Out of This Orbit (Cosmic Soul Mates, gun at my head looked away for a moment to lull me into a false sense of security before SHOOTING MY PUPPY IN THE FACE this is basically me throughout the last half of the bookDon t misunderstand this book wasreat READ IT NOW But it s like half of me wants to worship this majestic object and the other half wants to fling the beast into the faces of my enemies Just like the characters in the book the The War Planners Series grief wipes away any deep philosophical mulling I might have about what happened in the plot All that matters is therief and the death in the end Veronica makes that point pretty damn clear War is never romantic PeriodHell the lesson I ve learnt from 1984 V for Vendetta Hunger Games and Divergent Romance and anarchy do NOT MIX 010 WOULD NOT RECOMMEND Going against your Glidepath (Max Fend, government STEEL YOUR HEART AND VAGINA GIRL TOO DAMN BAD Because the subseuentrief man I m still cryingTo all those currently reading the book see you in hell comrades And to those crying and limp on their beds now welcome my friends This part is for those who have read the book I disagree with a hell lot of complaints made about this book and this is whyview spoiler Okay straight up I know most of us are upset read brutally slaughtered by the character death at the end However I don t think that just because we hate the death doesn t mean that this book totally sucks Veronica Roth unfortunately does not owe us a HEA I m perfectly fine crying on my bed yelling you HORRIBLE HORRIBLE WOMAN YOU RIPPED MY HEART OUT HOW COULD YOU while sobbing into my pillow but inside I m able to distance myself from my personal bias and see what this book is trying to say Because of this I just want to put my thoughts out there about what some people are sayingThe The Complete Calvin and Hobbes [Box Set] genetic project that created theenetically damaged people is legitimateA dystopia is the complete opposite of a utopia which is a perfect society More fundamentally dystopias form as a result of utopian societies Um Natal em Ardmore gone wrongLooking at our world right now it s easy to see the flaws in people We look at theovernment and see selfishness We look at people around us and see pride In fact everywhere we look we see the flaws in humanity And most of us are not at peace with it During the American Skeletons government shut down of 2013 the approval ratings for the republicans was an astoundingly bad 12% We as a society see that selfishness that irrationality and pride and it makes us angry 47% of people said that congress would be better off if nearly every member was replaced This is our real life responseIt is not difficult to see a society dedicated toetting rid of these traits In fact it s shockingly astounding easy to That s Veronica s point That s her utopia oing bad The failure of the enetic experiment is her commentary on human beings non acceptance of human nature We do not accept selfishness stupidity pride as part of us We want to So Far from the Sea get rid of it We vilify it And when faced with the chance to be rid of it we would probably take itAnd by essentially playing God in our rejection of the darkness in each and every one of us we created bigger monstersThe forming of the factions were a perfectly valid solution to the problem caused by theenetically damagedThis is absolutely crucial to understand This doesn t solve the problem at all Doesn t it just breed MORE The Wolfs Healing Touch (Wolves of Stone Ridge genetically damaged individuals It doesn t make any senseThis train of thought is exactly Veronica s intention Put yourself in the shoes of one of those who were notenetically damaged Who were still perfectly imperfect The The Draft government isoing to close off those twisted human beings and basically breed them in large labs letting them multiplyWhy not just kill them allAfter all they aren t actually human They aren t God s intention They are unnatural Inhuman Man madeOr are theyAs a result of human s tampering human beings have have created unnatural versions of themselves The reason why the Bible Prophecy genetically damaged are prejudiced against and disadvantaged in this society is because they are regarded as less human All those people in those factions in the eyes of everyone else who knows of their unnatural state are considered nothing than experimentsone wrong to so manyThe Civil Wars were to eradicate the experimentsHowever human beings have a conscience Most of us know deep down that the enetically altered deserve a chance to make their own choices Society had made a mistake in playing od once and suffered horribly for itSociety would not make the same mistake again The American Government in Allegiant would not make two wrongs in hopes of The Astral Codex getting a right And eradicating an entireeneration of living breathing beings is most certainly playing Here There Be Witches god and most certainly on par as wrongAnd if they could not kill theenetically damaged they sure as hell would try and find a way where the Story of the Liberty Bell genetically damaged could survive thrive and find their own humanity These subseuent projects involving factions were society srappling apology They are trying to fix what they have done You do not Fake Mustache get to erase the past Correlating with this thread society would NOT try and correct theseenes again Firstly you cannot CREATE enes when they have been removed Secondly to alter the enes AGAIN would be playing od would be being foolish Why would a society which has already suffered the repercussions of playing od repeat the exact same thing again And if they could not fix them and they could not kill them what other choice did they haveThis entire book revolves around the uestion on whether the Hey Wait a Minute! Five Rough and Reluctant Sex Erotica Stories gentically damaged were less human and it left YOU to decide for yourselfHow could they expect theenetically damaged to just fix themselves by creating random divergentsThis concept is difficult to Drawing Straws grasp because it reuires knowledge in biology Populations can fix themselves as a result of natural selection and selective pressureBasically theenetically damaged are less likely to survive while the divergent are likely too As a result the dive. Die Fraktionen haben sich aufgelöst und Tris und Four erfahren dass ihr anzes Leben eine Lüge ist Es ibt eine Welt außerhalb ihrer Stadt außerhalb des Zauns Für Tris und Four.

Asy Just have a nice Eaton family reunion where Evelyn magically just decides that the years she s spent neglecting her son and fighting for her own idea of justice is utterly useless because she s been transformed by The Power of Love No need to rip apart all of Chicago like she s been planning to her whole life All she needs is her son A few supporting characters die in the book but you don t really care If the author didn t bother spending enough time developing that character why should readers even flinch when they drop dead Of course the book makes these deaths a big deal but you re sitting there like Back in at the Department of Genetic Welfare Caleb is picked for the suicide mission of breaking into the top security vault to steal the memory wiping serum This is only fitting as Caleb is literally the only character who needs to be redeemed for his betrayal in Insurgent I mean the tagline of the book is one choice can define you so if Caleb doesn t own up to this moment he s basically Ethical Responsiveness and the Politics of Difference going to be a selfish heartless coward for the rest of the storyOh wait This book hasn t sufficiently fucked up already so instead of using a perfectlyood opportunity for a back stabbing character to redeem themselves it s just The scarecrow going to unnecessarily sacrifice the freaking main character because life is cruel and heartlessoddammit I could literally write another essay on why this particular ending sucked balls but before some anon messages me saying omgg it s veronica s book and her ending was so tragic but so byootiful don t you know you re not allowed to hate it111 let me explain myself I have no problem with happy endings bittersweet endings sad endings or even unresolved endings AS LONG AS THE ENDING MAKES SENSE WITH THE BODY OF THE WORK This is literally all I ask of any author of any novel From just a character perspective it makes sense that Tris would sacrifice herself for the Elizabeth Cady Stanton greaterood That s just what she as a selflessly reckless person would do But considering that there was a perfectly After the End good person involved in this ending that needed to be redeemed cough Caleb cough who didn t offer to sacrifice himself to save his sister I m uestioning the true motive for why this ending was picked We already know that Tris is a character who s willing to sacrifice herself for thereater The Doll and Her Friends (1893) good Did we learn any new information about her character when she decided to make this sacrifice Wouldn t we haveained a better perspective of Caleb if he had made this choice instead And most importantly wouldn t sparing Tris s life allow the final conclusion of this trilogy to be sound less rushed and less overshadowed by the her death Tris s sacrifice comes off as being meaningless because she doesn t save anyone from dying Had she failed to using the memory serum the worst thing that would have happened was that Chicago would have been reset and the main conflict would have disappeared completely And that doesn t even matter in the end because all the major characters that we are supposed to care about were already inoculated against the memory serum anyway In fact by stealing the memory serum Tris effectively tosses up the fate of Chicago in the air If Four hadn t magically convinced his mother to stop fighting then the city would have been in shreds and people would have died The careless way her death is written and revealed makes the ending look like it was purely written simply for a cheap shock value Cue the forced emotional and dramatic ending where readers drown in a puddle of their feels as we re forced to read Four s tragic reaction to her death The last few chapters including the epilogue are incredibly rushed Literally every single issue in the Septiņi growing mountain of problems that accumulated over the course of this book are immediately solved without any further complications or commentary because deus ex machina EDIT 71113 The ending is far from being the worst thing about this book but I did read the author s blog post about what she was aiming for Keeping her intentions in mind I still think this ending failed in it s execution Primarily the inorganic way that the events are revealed crushes the effect this ending was trying to achieve EDIT 91113 Another blatant plot hole I m baffled over Tris discovers that her mother was brought in from the outside to rescue Divergents who were being killed by Jeanine s predecessor Then later on it is revealed that the Bureau supplied Jeanine with the attack simulation serum she used to massacre the Abnegation So the Bureau is apparently so cautious and protective of every Divergent life that they are willing to send in one of their own to save as many of them as possible but helping Jeanine massacre an entire faction that contains Divergents is totally ok with them Why is this link between the Bureau and Jeanine established but never explained at length Did it show us anything other than the fact that this book is riddled with plot holes hide spoiler Veronica RothWell I tried writing this review without there being any spoilers but it s rather impossible for me at least So readers bewareVeronica can do so much better than this so so much The second Tobias PoV was introduced I knew Tris wasoing to pull some heroic sacrificial bullshit and Nightbane World Book One get her ass killed I fucking knew it Not a tear was shed from me not a single fuck wasiven Yes dear readers call me a Satanist slash sadist for all I care I saw no point in this move perhaps Roth wanted to be uniue and inspiring with her story nevertheless it was still unnecessary Apart from that Allegiant is an entirely different story entirely different The book was confusing I wasn t pissed whilst reading I wasn t saddened hell I wasn t even bored I was reading this book with a blank expression Constantly I kept forgetting I was reading a book that s a continuance of the Divergent trilogy The terms Divergent and Divergence were a reminder that I was indeed reading the final installment I m sorry to say this but this was the dumbest book I ve read in 2013 Allegiant was a hot ass fucking mess The character development as well as the world building was tragic It was not explained how Tris survived the death serum we were only The All New Jonah Twist given half assed clouded ideas The romance fell off a cliff and shattered on sharp rocks at the bottom the relationship between Tris and Tobias failed to impress me The whole BOOK failed to impress me It hurts me to say this because I adore Veronica Roth No one and I mean no one can change my mind about this book you can write a mile long essay about why you felt this book was perfectly wrapped and poignant you can say how wrong I am you can say just about anything and I still wouldn tive a flying Ford AngliaI remember Roth wrote a blog post about wanting Harry Potter to be killed off because it would have showed the reatest act of sacrifice and love I don t know what her fucking deal is with killing people off because it shows real love No it doesn t That s not always the route to take there are other ways of showing true love and sacrifice There s always another way The minute the characters went out the fence the story fell even further into the pit of stupidity Allegiant tried to be preachy The overnment or should I say the Bureau in here plays or is God We are introduced to superfluous explanations on why we have the factions and the factionless We learn about Genetic Purity and the Genetically Damaged Genetic Purity meaning Divergence Genetically Damaged meaning belonging to one faction with fucked up Legon Ascension (Legon Series genes We also find out Tobias is in fact not Divergent but Genetically Damaged whichives Allegiant yet ANOTHER twist that s pointless with dramatic arguments Come the fuck ON I am not impressed OH how can I forget Tris mother was part of this Bureau HOW FUCKING EXCITING OMFG111 sarcasmWhat else do you want to throw in to make this all the amazing and specialHonest to God I wish I had something nice to say about Allegiant There s an attempt at a love triangle here between Nita and Tobias there s an attempt at something uniue with this story but the alternating PoV between Tris and Tobias and everything I ve stated above ruined everything Also I didn t like Tobias voice here Roth did not do a PMS good job with portraying a male protagonist I kept hearing a female voice in my head constantly thinking it was Tris Did Veronica have this all planned out since the first book If it was then it wasn t veryood and thorough This book is a flat out FAIL Mid book review cos I m struggling to finish this So far Katy Perry does a The Two of Swords good job summing this book up You change your mindLike airl changes clothesYeah you PMSLike a bitchI would knowAnd

book but I personally thought this book was raw realistic and heartbreaking.

Rgents would be likely to survive into adulthood reproduce and eventually there will be a larger proportion of divergents as compared to the others The Divergent themselves crop up as a result of enetic mutation or Kentucky Grandmothers genetic healing Yourenes can change The world didn t start with one basic template for every trait that ever existed The different hair colors different physical traits today likely began as mutations and then thrived under natural selection and selective pressureThis should have been explained better in the book absolutelyThe whole shebang with the memory serum raises a hell lot of important uestions and are not supposed to be a pretty solution wrapped in a silk bowThe conflict Tris faced with the morality of the memory serum is real Is it right to remove one s memory Removing one s memory brings with it dozens of ethical issues Does it remove Free Will Are the memory altered the same people as they were before then Can you convict a person who has done a crime even if they don t remember what they have done Who has the right to alter someone s memory Is it playing God Has technology Štěky Broka Špindíry gone to far today and should society limit what it could do Do the ends justify the means And does the Greater Good even exist or are things either just right or wrong These uestions are for all of us to think about It s not just a problem solution thing hereuys We cannot look at it simply or we ll be missing the point completely It s not about leaving them to kill themselves It s about The Blackmailed Secretary giving them a choice to make their own mistakes and staying true to who they are Personally I don t feel like Veronica Roth handled these themes with as much finesse as I would like but for a YA novel I ll let itoEvelyn s decision to choose her son over everything she s worked for was monumentalAgain if you look at it simply you will not see what is trying to be said For me I think Veronica is trying to show you the power of maternal love a very strong theme in Harry Potter as well the complexity of humanity the ability to change your decisions and actions the effect of abuse and how the abusee can turn into the abuser and finally the sharp contrast between Evelyn and MarcusBoth Evelyn and Marcus are enetically damaged people aka deemed less human or inhuman altogether For Marcus he is the perfect example of how the enetic alteration experiment has created monsters Marcus is twisted and rid of humanity He we can easily deem as inhuman But one man s twisted character does not determine those of his kind Evelyn is just as enetically altered and yet she overcame her enetic deficiencies She made herself Her Decadent (Wicked Lovers genes did not determine her actions despite the fact that she was designed and made that way Her decision to choose her son was not simply a cheesy act of love It was an epic bitchslap to herenetic makeup Evelyn defied her supposed destiny and carved out another on her own Actually I was pointed out in the comments that Marcus was Divergent something I completely forgot That just draws an even sharper contrast between Evelyn and Marcus which better uestions just how much control our enetic makeup has over our actions Evelyn despite being inherently inhuman was indefinitely human than Marcus who was altogether healed This just shows us how evil can exist in any of us just as ood canThis raises one big uestion Is Caleb s betrayal justified because he was enetically altered Are any of the actions of the enetically altered justified Or were they just as much their choices instead of simply their De-cluttering Your Closet genetic codeMore uestionsAnd finally Tris death Hell on roller skates mop my tears for a secTo be honest I don t want to ponder too much about her death because its purpose feels highly subjective to everyone s personal interpretation to me However I feel like it was right that she died as who she was and not a shadow of herself Tris ultimate sacrifice for love and thereater De Brandende Brug (De Grijze Jager, good was who she is If we were to have our Happily Ever After we would have with us a false caricature of Tris This is who she is and we cannot deny our loved ones their own choices and their very natureI felt that her seeing her mother at the very end was absolutely beautiful and negates any argument that says that she died meaninglessly She died still swinging and living life true to who she is and she reunited with her loved ones Hell this means she probably reunited with Uriah too in the end and that makes me cry all the harderWell these are my thoughts feel free to comment below on your own This is a supportroup my friends we re all in this highly traumatized post Allegiant state together hide spoiler The book starts off with this epigraph from the Erudite faction manifesto Every uestion that can be answered must be answered or at least engaged Illogical thought processes must be challenged when they ariseAnd then fantastically misses the mark Allegiant was so chock full of plot holes unrealistic situations contrived character development laughable explanations and a whole load of wtf moments And that s not even including the disastrous ending of this book How this book managed to have an epigraph about being logical is a complete mystery to me INCLUDES MASSIVE SPOILERS view spoilerRight from the Humanizing Big Data geto the book wastes little time with the petty conflict between the factions and the factionless The narrative spends a few convenient moments agonizing over the factionless vs factions dilemma and then decides to venture outside the fence Which you know is totally fine because we all assumed that at some point the narrative would come back to resolve that conflict in a reasonable way later on One dead character and a relatively easy stroll through the fence later Tris and company encounter THE WORLD OUTSIDE THE FENCE Behold the moment we have all been waiting for As it turns out the world has apparently been so full of assholes that the Bonds of Need (Wicked Play, government decided to eliminate theenes in citizens that caused dishonestly selfishness cowardice stupidity and aggression Unfortunately this backfired and just created assholes that were asshole y than before So how does a rational Scoring

factionless and the factions the book tries to take on a whole new conflict between the A Cinderella Christmas Carol (Suddenly Cinderella, genetically pure and theenetically damaged making the plot unnecessarily convoluted and leaving little to no room for proper character development Tris and Four s switching POVs only disorient the reader further because as the book continues the characters voices lose their distinctions and start to sound and like each other While Tris may have been tougher in this book than in Insurgent which is literally the only redeeming uality I m willing to My Fair Temptress (Governess Brides, give this book Four s characterets a complete top to bottom deconstruction Gone is the tough strong badass we The Magic Talisman (A Rick Brant Science Adventure Series, got to know in the previous two books Instead Roth replaces Four with a bumbling emotional man child who fails to make rational decisions and think straight His judgement is often clouded by his own insecurities androwing fears Before we knew Four as being a character who would never let his fears control him In Allegiant Four s fears have his neck in a leash and tug him in any which direction and he willing L. M. Montgomery goes without even putting up a fightWhich now brings me to the disastrous ending of this book Suddenly tensions are rising between the factionless and the Allegiant theroup who wants to re establish the faction system and Evelyn decides she s Splitting Seconds (Songbird Series going to use the Erudite death serum to wipe out her opponents But the Department of Genetic Welfare is having none of her shit so they decide that they re justoing to wipe out everyone s memory so they don t kill each other Can I also point out here that they used this memory wiping serum before to trick the The Snatching of Bookie Bob and Other Stories general population into thinking that theenetically damaged are alone the cause of the world s problems So you know there wouldn t be massive protests or anything when the Continuous Delivery with Docker and Jenkins: Delivering software at scale 1, Rafal Leszko, eBook - Amazon.com government decided to deliberately waste money trying to solve a problem they knew was fucked to begin withA race against the clock ensues where Fouroes back to Chicago to try and wipe the memories of his parents to stop them from fighting while Tris stays behind to try and steal this memory serum and use it on the Department themselves The book Three Brave Women gets a little preachy right before this part where the characters start talking about how erasing someone s memories is inherently evil unless you haveood intentions of course The Department also has Soulless (Black Thorns, good intentions for using this serum on Chicago and saving the lives of thousands of people but fuck logic Our heroes would way rather just watch the people they love kill each other And how exactly does the book wrap up the supposedly exciting and suspenseful conflict between the factionless and the Allegiant that has brewing in the background this whole time Steht fest dass sie diese neue Welt erkunden wollen Gemeinsam Doch sie müssen erkennen dass die Lüge hinter dem Zaunrößer ist als alles was sie sich vorstellen konnten und die.
