Allegiant (Divergent #3) Review

Hello There!

The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories. 

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love. 

Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.

I had brought this book yesterday and got straight into my room afterwards and locked the rest of the world out as I delved into the book. I had been waiting for the last book of the series to be released and, even though the only available book was in hardback, I was crying tears of joys when I had finally brought it. Finding out that the book, Divergent, was being released, it made me even more desperate to finish the set before the so called fans hit the books and watched the films.

The book itself was quite slow paced at the beginning and went straight to the point - but in a bad way. After almost six months of not having read any of the Divergent books, I was a little confused. Nevertheless, the book was great and it kept me hook till the very last word. I wasn't able to put the book down, even when I did need to go to the toilet *queue the disgusted looks*

I am so sad that the books have finished but relieved that it had ended at the same time. I think the author Veronica Roth made a good decision in ending it the way she did without dragging the plot like so many authors do. The ending was so....

But at the same time it was so...

Gah I cannot applaud Veronica Roth enough and think she did an absolutely amazing job with this series. She has definitely made her way into my list of favourite authors and hope to read from her again.

Honestly guys, pick up the Divergent books. Even if you do not like post-apocalyptic books, give this one a chance. And if you regret it, I urge you to write me a formal complaint via email and rant your little heart out. That is how confident I am that you will love this book.
