SPOILER ALERT!

Not What I Was Expecting

Allegiant  - Veronica Roth

I'll be honest, this is an incredibly difficult review for me to write. DIVERGENT is one of my favorite reads (EVER) and while I know a lot of people didn't like it, Tris' journey from Abnegation to Dauntless resonated with me on a deeply personal level.  


I've been waiting a year and a half for the conclusion of Tris and Four's story (just like everyone else) and I was expecting a gut-wrenching thrill ride, but not like this. This book has left me heartbroken and disappointed for so many reasons. 

 

Yes, the choices the characters make are consistent with who they are (mostly) and I "get" how the story comes full circle with Roth's faith woven into the fabric of it all. But the WAY it ends felt like it was done purely for shock value and just seems pointless.
