One decision can change everything. The society that Tris Prior once believed in, is now gone. She is now offered a chance to explore outside of the world she once knew. In this new adventure, Tris and Tobias hope to move past the complicated lies and painful memories. However, the new reality can be even more startling. There is a lot more plot to uncover in Allegiant unlike in Insurgent. There was so much happening and many twists. Something that I liked about Allegiant when I initially saw it, was that there were two points of view. This time we got to see Tobias’s point of view instead of just Tris. However, despite being excited for the alternating points of view, it felt flawed. There was a lot of repetition, you would see a scene from Tris, and then you would read the same scene being told almost the same way in Tobias’s point of view making it seem like it was unnecessary. After reading the ending I could now understand why a dual perspective was included however that too felt like a mess. The book felt incomplete despite reading the ending multiple times. It was a plot twist, but very unsatisfactory, Tris did get her development midway through Allegiant, however, after that, it just turned into chaos. I wouldn’t recommend Allegiant to Divergent readers, I felt like the only good book in the series was the first book, Divergent, after that it went downhill.

I found Allegiant to be even worse than the previous installment. It did not keep me hooked, I didn't love the plot of going beyond the fence, and the ending was so disappointing. And also a little unclear. I remember reading a few more pages before pausing, realizing, and having to go back and reread the plot twist again to make sure I had it right. I didn't even really cry, which says a lot because I'm so emotional when it comes to movie and book characters. Anyways, didn't love the plot, hated the ending, and would not read again.

I fall in with majority opinion on this one- it was disappointing, to say the least. There are so many directions that Roth could have gone with this series, and to choose what she did really feels like a lost opportunity. Instead of really getting into the faction society, and writing five books- each one focusing on a different person choosing a faction and following them through the initiate process (which would have solidified the society in folks minds and had them staunchly rooting for their favorites, writing fan-fiction, sporting memorabilia of one of the five, and keeping folks attention), we are handed a run of the mill 'let's break down this post-apocalyptic society and attempt to rebuild it because it's wrong' shlock that we're all beyond tired of. Some of us would like to know the ins and outs of a dystopian society before you rip the whole thing down in a revolution.
This book, like the last installment, Insurgent, feels messy. We have characters venturing outside the fence, then back in, then random side characters dying, then a messy coup thrown together, not to mention the dual perspectives all of a sudden (why?) and characters acting completely different than we've known, or turning around on a dime and repenting for zero reasons. This is not even including the crazy non-sensical ending- I'm sure most of you know what it is, but I won't spoil it here.
It was simply too long, and too much wasted potential. If Roth decides to go back and write prequels about the factions, I'd be interested. As it stands, though, I won't ever want to revisit this series.

Absolutely amazing, I love that Roth gave this book a really different ending from the others, that doesn't mean I like the fact that she dies. :( But it was, in a way a comforting becuase it really shows how reality it - everyone could die, even the main character.

I really liked Divergent. Insurgent wasn't nearly as good but I still liked it and think it was worth reading. I didn't even finish Allegiant. It was really disappointing and just not good at all.

"There are so many ways to be brave in this world. Sometimes bravery involves laying down your life for someone else. Sometimes it involves giving up everything you have ever known, or everyone you have ever loved, for the sake of something greater.

But sometimes it doesn't.
Sometimes it is nothing more than gritting your teeth through pain, and the work of every day, the slow walk toward a better life

That is the sort of bravery I must have now."

~Tobias, p. 509

I agree with the comment below. I've been trying to rewrite the ending of the book so I don't feel so sad about the book. Why Roth? Why?!

Anyways a super quick summary of the book is basically when Tris and company go outside the wall and find that other people are living out there and are trying to figure out why.

Tris finds herself in a world outside of her old one, which turns out to be an experiment and finds herself in a whirlwind romance with Tobias and learning about this new place, the fringe and the purity war. Then it's discovered that long ago the government messed with genes and some are known as GP (geneticaly pure, no messed up genes) or GD (geneticaly damaged, messed up genes) and GD's are looked down upon. The Divergent are GP's and, after an examination, Tobias and Tris discover Tris is GP and Tobias is not. Also Marcus is sentanced to go outside, where Tobias finally escaped him. Then a girl named Nita draws in Tobias to a revolution, one Tris dosen't trust. Tobias continues to help and participates in a explosion that puts Uriah into a coma he'll never wake up from. They almost break up but get back together and lead a real rebellion, one that Tris sacrifices her life for for the greater good. Overcome with grief, Tobias nearly erases all his memories, stopped by Christina, a close friend of Tris. They later become good friends themselves. You will feel the love for the couple as they discover the other is a part of themselves and will be teared apart like Tobias when Tris is gone. An amazing ending to an incredible series.
