What if your whole world was a lie? The thrillingly dark conclusion to the No. 1 New York Times bestselling DIVERGENT trilogy. What if a single revelation - like a single choice - changed everything? What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected? 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.

HereΓΖΖΖΓΖβΓβΓΒ’β¬β’s my take on it. I just finished it about a half hour ago. This wasn't the best book IΓΖΖΖΓΖβΓβΓΒ’β¬β’ve ever read. For me, it seemed to lack that climactic feeling that I look forward to in the ending of a series or trilogy. But I still really enjoyed this book and thought it was an appropriate ending to the story.
I usually finish books in a few hours. I zipped right through Divergent and Insurgent when each of those came out. But Allegiant took me a few days to read, because I just could not get into the story. It was boring, slow-paced, and lacked the action of the previous books. The dual POV (point of view) made matters worse because I'd often forget if I was in Tris' or Tobias' POV, and I had to go back multiple times to check. I'm curious, did anyone actually like the dual POV? I understand why it was necessary, but it wasn't effective at all. Their internal voices were identical.
The plot itself was where I took the most offense though. It was cliched, convoluted, tried too hard to address every single loose thread while just creating many more, and it ultimately never reached any sort of exciting climax. Like others have said, I struggled to feel invested in this story (unlike the prior two novels, which I couldn't put down!) and felt like I was always waiting for something exciting to happen, which ultimately never came.
Overall this wasn't the worst YA fiction book out but it could have been better. Way better. It wasn't predictable like I had thought it would be but not necessary in a good way.
Praise for DIVERGENT: "The next big thing." (Rolling Stone ) "If you like Hunger Games & Twilight, then get stoked for DIVERGENT! Trust us on this-this baby is going to blow up BIG! And if you chose to remain factionless, then you're gonna be one lonely soul." (PerezHilton.com ) "A taut and shiveringly exciting read! Tris is exactly the sort of unflinching and fierce heroine I love. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough." Melissa Marr, bestselling author of Wicked Lovely "DIVERGENT is a captivating, fascinating book that kept me in constant suspense and was never short on surprises. It will be a long time before I quit thinking about this haunting vision of the future." James Dashner, author of 'The Maze Runner'
