Book Review: Allegiant

ALLEGIANT by Veronica Roth 
5 Stars 
Verdict: Ouch.
#1 - Divergent
#2 - Insurgent

I can’t review this book in detail without spoilers, so I’m keeping it short and sharp -  which is fitting, as this book felt like a knife to the heart.

No, not a knife.

This book is Roth’s warning: Enter my imagination at your own peril.

What I will say, is that this book is very different from the others. It had to. The end of book 2 was a game changer, and so this book isn’t the final step in the revolution. It’s much more of a message. A statement. And in true Divergent fashion, it’s slow to get going but hard to put down.

Until that final section.

I’ve come to terms with the ending now. It held a lot of meaning, and felt like the realistic option. A bold move, by all accounts, but after reading hundreds of pages, I feel disappointed, jilted, and well and truly done. The next in the series doesn’t interest me.

It was good while it lasted, but so long Divergent series. I would say ‘take care’ but I know you won’t have that luxury
