    The fun and laughter is over. I have finally read Allegiant, and I feel empty inside. Empty but accepting, and understanding.

    This book makes Mockingjay feel like Dr Seuss. I had a few problems with it (mainly that it spelled out a bit too much for the reader, lacked finesse with the handling of themes, and was sometimes pretty predictable) but the character development was breathtaking, the plot was heart-pounding and since it's a young adult novel, I think Veroni

    You know what? Who gives a shit about the technicalities.

    Veronica whispered threats into my ear, aimed a gun at my head, looked away for a moment to lull me into a false sense of security before SHOOTING MY PUPPY IN THE FACE.

    Don't misunderstand, this book was great! READ IT NOW. But it's like half of me wants to worship this majestic object and the other half wants to

    Just like the characters in the book, the grief wipes away any deep philosophical mulling I might have about what happened in the plot. All that matters is the grief and the death in the end. Veronica makes that point pretty damn clear. War is never romantic. Period.

    Hell, the lesson I've learnt from 1984, V for Vendetta, Hunger Games and Divergent? Romance and anarchy do NOT MIX, 0/10, WOULD NOT RECOMMEND. Going against your government? STEEL YOUR HEART AND VAGINA GIRL, TOO DAMN BAD. Because the subsequent grief... man. I'm still crying.

    I disagree with a hell lot of complaints made about this book, and this is why:

    cos I'm struggling to finish this. So far Katy Perry does a good job summing this book up:

    : The cover's actually good, though I have to admit, some of the fan made covers were gorgeous. I'm not too sure about the water symbol. I was hoping they had all 5 symbols and had them crashing together to create a new symbol. Y'know new world, new symbol??

    : Allegiant?? Really? Did they mean Allergen[t]? Y'know, the factionless' quest to rid themselves of fleas permanently. Grab your nets and bugs spray! I can't say that I like being wrong but still looking forward to how things end.

    Hmmm...all the possible titles:

    -Option 1: Emergent

    -Option 2: Resurgent

    -Option 3: Convergent

    -Option 4: Indulgent

    -Option 5: By popular demand, we have Detergent. After 2 books of nothing but blood, sweat and tears, these people are filthy I tell you! They need all the help they can get to remove all those tough stains. Blood can seriously be a bitch to clean!

    Books are a magical thing. They get you invested in people, worlds, scenarios that aren’t even real or plausible and they make you care about them. If done correctly, I should say.

    was certainly the final book of a hype-copter of a series that left millions of readers invested. Like a few other books this past year, it has left a feeling of doubt, anger, and a lot of crying.

    But for me, I was left with a sort of empty feeling. Some of the emptiness was filled by frustration, and for the most part, I don’t understand it. So if I leave my thoughts, I think I can at least pass on why this book has 1.5 stars and not a glistening five.

    We start off with the idea that there is a whole world beyond Chicago’s fence. I mean that's fairly easy to catch. But I’m concerned as to how anyone could manage to understand the rest of this series, especially when it decides to double onto itself to make THE most convoluted plot I’ve ever had the misfortune to decipher in YA.

    Now lemme explain: if this convoluted plot actually made sense and didn’t leave me wanting to go back to the equally stupid but at least interesting concept of the factions, then I wouldn’t be as frustrated as I am. Not nearly. I’ll be stumbling into some spoilers so it’s only fair that I slam the spoiler button.

    The half star is devoted to the few moments in Allegiant that caught my attention and made me feel better about the characters/plot/stuff. The rest was just something I want to forget. It’s way too convoluted and unknowing of what the fuck it wants to be. The fact that I want to go back to the Factions as they were is a message in and of itself.

    I feel like this book scarred me that way, but hey, guess what it did do. It made me get way into my own works to go and prove to myself that I can achieve more than what this did. THE SCARRING WILL PUSH ME THROUGH.

    TIME WILL HEAL ALL WOUNDS.

    EDIT THE SECOND:

    Well bust my buttons, look at that cover.

    Holy fuck.

    Edit:

    Allegiant?

    But it...breaks the pattern outside of sounding similar! D:

    LOOK AT MY MASTERPIECE.

    I should snag a job as a cover artist.

    Needs more Comic Sans...

    Veronica Roth:

    Tobias’ PoV was introduced I knew Tris was going to pull some heroic sacrificial bullshit and get her ass killed. I fucking knew it. Not a tear was shed from me… not a single fuck was given. Yes, dear readers, call me a Satanist slash sadist for all I care. I saw no point in this move –

Yes, dear readers, call me a Satanist slash sadist for all I care. I saw no point in this move – perhaps Roth wanted to be unique and inspiring with her story; nevertheless, it was still unnecessary.

    Apart from that,

    is an entirely different story, entirely different. The book was confusing. I wasn’t pissed whilst reading, I wasn’t saddened, hell, I wasn’t even

    . I was reading this book with a blank expression. Constantly I kept forgetting I was reading a book that’s a continuance of the Divergent trilogy. The terms “Divergent” and “Divergence” were a reminder that I was, indeed, reading the final installment. I’m sorry to say this, but:

    .

    was a hot ass fucking mess. The character development as well as the world-building was tragic. It was not explained how Tris survived the death serum, we were only given half-assed, clouded ideas. The romance fell off a cliff and shattered on sharp rocks at the bottom, the relationship between Tris and Tobias failed to impress me.

    . It hurts me to say this because I adore Veronica Roth. No one, and I mean

    can change my mind about this book: you can write a mile long essay about why you felt this book was perfectly wrapped and poignant, you can say how wrong I am, you can say just about anything and I still wouldn't give a flying Ford Anglia.

    I remember Roth wrote a blog post about wanting Harry Potter to be killed off because "it would have showed the greatest act of sacrifice and love". I don't know what her fucking deal is with killing people off because "it shows real love". No, it doesn't. That's not always the route to take; there

    other ways of showing true love and sacrifice. There's always another way.

    The minute the characters went out the fence, the story fell even further into the pit of stupidity.

    tried to be preachy. The government (or should I say the Bureau) in here plays (or is) God. We are introduced to superfluous explanations on why we have the factions and the factionless. We learn about Genetic Purity and the Genetically Damaged. Genetic Purity meaning Divergence; Genetically Damaged meaning belonging to one faction with fucked up genes. We also find out Tobias is, in fact, not Divergent, but Genetically Damaged which gives

    , yet, ANOTHER twist that's pointless with dramatic arguments. Come the fuck ON. I am not impressed.

    OH, how can I forget? Tris' mother was part of this Bureau. HOW FUCKING EXCITING OMFG!!1!!11!!! /sarcasm

    What else do you want to throw in to make this all the more amazing and special?

    Honest to God I wish I had something nice to say about

    . There's an attempt at a love triangle here between Nita and Tobias, there's an attempt at something unique with this story, but the alternating PoV between Tris and Tobias and everything I've stated above ruined everything. Also, I didn't like Tobias' voice here, Roth did not do a good job with portraying a male protagonist. I kept hearing a female voice in my head, constantly thinking it was Tris'. Did Veronica have this all planned out since the first book? If it was then it wasn't very good and thorough. This book is a flat out

    If in your story the word

    could have just as easily been replaced with the word

    or

    or

    , your premise may seriously need some rethinking.¹

    Well, now against all odds (and against my self-preservation sense) I finished this series.

    It could have been somewhat salvageable - if only the author was able to recapture the unabashed mindless fun entertainment that 'Divergent' was able to pull off. But, alas, it lost the fun aspect completely, and what was left when entertainment was removed turned out to be insufficient to fill the resulting void.

    Just to clarify - my disappointment has nothing to do with the widely publicized "controversial" ending - or at least not with the part of the ending (a certain character's fate

    ) that has quite a few people freak out.

    You see, far from trying to resolve any of the old conflicts built up in the previous two books, this story decides to just abruptly swing to another issue - 'genetically pure' vs. 'genetically damaged', carelessly dismissing the dystopian Chicago world as though it had never happened in favor of the new development.

    As much as I was making fun of the ridiculous premise of this faction-based encapsulated society, I really did not appreciate sudden treatment of it as little but an unfortunate afterthought, a setting that doesn't matter much, a place that we abruptly leave and only visiting again as a "by the way",

    Instead of resolving the issues and conflicts with the established characters and developing these characters further so that they in the end would not look like cardboard cutouts, we are introduced to the slew of new characters which basically are just mashups of the old characters and are there for reasons unclear - but I'd at least like to assume are different than Roth simply getting distracted by the new shiny idea.

    - the slaughter facing the city is stopped by little else than basically a family reunion. Because Love heals, my friends. Because as long as the character's parents face their conflicts, the entire world becomes a better place to live. And no, this is NOT done from the perspective a a five-year-old. And suddenly the world becomes a better place, just because two adults have finally had a conversation. Because everyone else will just blindly follow the two semi-questionable leaders.

    We also get a few heavy moralistic lessons and insights into the natures of what's good and what's evil.

    Anything that she is not personally invested in is therefore Evil. For instance, it's only EVIL to erase memories of those she cares about. Even if the justification for both acts is identical - to prevent violence and deaths.

    By this book, Tris is not only the 80-pound badass of all badasses out there; she is infallible, flawless, selfless, unerringly perceptible,

    And I found it to be eye-rollingly annoying.

    This book is mostly told in alternating chapters by Tris and Tobias. It does help to read the title of each chapter to remember who the narrator is supposed to be because otherwise their voices are completely indistinguishable. Quite a few times I got halfway through a chapter before remembering that the narrator had changed. That does not a skillful narration make, my friends.

    Overall, this series started ridiculous but fun, quickly deteriorated and finished on the note sour enough to give me a semi-permanent scowl.

    ..........
