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 complica 15 StarsBooks 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 Allegiant 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 cryingBut 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 15 stars and not a glistening fiveWe 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 eually 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 buttonHere Comes the Boom Breakdownview spoilerWRITINGPLOTWHY THE EVERLOVING FUCK DID THIS TAKE SO LONGDivergent as you might of guessed made me interested in the series because the pacing while crippling and slow left a snap to it that kept me incredibly invested in whatever the hell was going on The Factions were originally a stupid idea to me because it easily set up an opening for war No one looks at that system and says “Wow what a good idea” It screams disorganization and ineuality There’s clearly a war to be hadNow Insurgent gave us a smidge of what was to be expected and while nothing continued to happen we get dumped on with the idea that this entire society was only a FEW GENERATIONS OLD If I remember correctly it wasn’t even that many generations like three That could be any stretch of time that could amount to a century Do you know HOW MUCH CHANGE can come through a century You go 100 years ago and you have the start of WWI where helicopters didn’t exist and the Titanic sunk two years before that Now we have shit called computers that have as much potential as the baby TVcomputertelephone things we shove in our pocketsThere’s no way a system of Factions would last a century without something like the Hunger Games where a war might’ve happened and possibly failedNow I’m assuming this was seen as ridiculous because Allegiant takes this society and makes it an experiment An experiment to bring forth the Divergent which is actually defined at last It’s not just serum avoiding magic but genetic purity Becausebecause purity is made by fucking around with Mendel Punnett suares There is ALWAYS a way to fix personality without fucking with everything else Just look at fruit flies Now they’re all able to avoid our serums Thanks you adorable suaresNOLEARN A BIT OF BIO BEFORE YOU THINK THAT THIS MAKES ANY SORT OF SENSEThe Factions were formed as a means of living and value why the fuck does genetic material and serums even matter to VALUES and LIVING SITUATIONS Because those who switch their faction are clearly genetically pure than those “damaged” You know NORMAL peopleAnyhow the writing for this is a lot of telling You get that thing I mentioned in the last book’s review where the characters are telling me how they act so I can trust them “I loved Caleb but I didn’t want to forgive him because I’m not a forgiving type” I WANT TO KNOW YOUR TRAITS THROUGH SHOW The fact that I still got this was a way of saying “dunno if you know that my character fucking loves the color chartreuse but I HAVE TO TELL YOU SO HERE”It grates on me so hard and it’s even worse because I got DOUBLE the telling thanks to the dual POV of Tris and Tobias You’d think that because you have two different people talking you’d get some difference between the characters AHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAA are you fucking serious since when have you had that in YA NEVER YOU FUCKERS YOU CAN NEVER HAVE DIFFERENT CHARACTERS EVER AGAINIs it really hard to change the voice of characters That should be the easiest thing in the world but apparently it’s just so hard But yeah the whole government was all about making city societies to forge these genetically pure people that do nothing but avoid the serums that they themselves produce because whatever There actually is no point to the serums except maybe give the heads in the cities some control THERE IS NO POINT TO THE SERUMS EXCEPT TO BE THEREAnother thing I also wouldn’t mind the whole government creation of genetically pure breeding camps if it didn’t completely nullify the idea of the fucking Factions The Factions purposefully threw people apart and the ONLY time they intermingled was during Choosing Ceremonies and switching over Like why establish separation to that extreme and expect pure little genetic babies out of itIt’s not thought through in the slightest And it doesn’t help that Tris and Tobias are told this and barely react to it They react with a cheesy camera zoom in gasp and then it’s gone and they just accept it because it’s outside the fence URRGHH NO I think the worst thing to happen was the characters so I’m gonna go over that wayCHARACTERSTris first and foremost is a LOT better than she was in Insurgent Because I finally figured out what the hell she was doing with her life and her own decisions She showed her change into the bravery that she originally wanted to have way back in Divergent But what I didn’t like was that she had to dieThe main reason this irks me is because Tris above anything else had shown nothing in her arc to suggest that she had to go and kill herself when clearly Caleb had to redeem himself His reaction to the situation was great I think Be scared to commi suicide realize that’s how everyone will be saved then accepts his death HE ACCEPTS IT THEN TRIS TAKES IT AWAY BECAUSENow here’s how I would kind of understand Tris’ actions a little If she were actually still very caring towards her brother DESPITE his asshole nature and she fought with him to handle the bomb into the Weapons Lab that’d be something I’d understand that she is so desperate to save her last family member that she does what she considers the right thing and takes the explosives from him It’d be reckless but I see it as brave because she channels the sacrifice like her mother channeled the sacrifice Because she didn’t care about Caleb at all while also totally understandable I’m left with this conclusion of “Uhhh” for why Tris took Caleb’s position when he clearly chose to redeem himselfTOBY however got infinitely worse in this book He melted into a pansy And he was the one to use similes as often as he could as he told other people about his character traits He started to become Cassandra Clare prose basically and that is NOT what I needed in AllegiantPositives for these two consist of their relationship It is awesome and magical in the sense that they have the struggles of telling the truth and lying to protect each other and they SIT DOWN and DISCUSS these problems A fucking plus because seriously everything is like “No I must protect you now sit your ass down and lemme do it blah blah blah” Tris actually sits and ponders if she really wants to deal with Toby if he keeps acting the way he does and Toby while a bit sad about that decision making understands and doesn’t infringe upon it You win this round you twoWhat definitely pisses me off to no end and this was Insurgent as well was the fact that the sideminor characters are fucking nothing THEY ARE NOTHING They have no arcs or situations and the three people who came close to having such a thing were Christina Uriah and PeterBUT WHAT HAPPENS Peter is so ingrained with being a nosy asswipe and a half but get this he’s really good on the inside He doesn’t want to remember what an asshat he was I would be okay with this if this was fucking present in the series at all He hurt and assaulted people in the first book somewhat gets betterby helping Tris because it benefited him then WHOOSH he doesn’t want to deal with the effects of any of that It comes out of the sky 80% of the way through the book and blows up what his entire character was about I’m pissed about this because I enjoyed asshole Peter and the idea that he was beginning a change for the better Erasing your memories is not a good changeURIAH was good up until he just you know got blown up If it felt necessary again I would be okay with this I feel like deaths for characters should have some sort of reasoning attached I feel cheated when characters just DIE The upside to this fiasco was that he unless OTHER dystopias that rhyme with Funger Lames had closure Nicely done closure that I can appreciateThis also goes along with Christina She had great building in Insurgent or at least at the start of it She gets detail with her family but it’s not like it really goes anyway We learn about her but that’skind of it She gets her screen tie and then she’s done I’m not seeing the love for the characters and that breaks my heart a little STRUCTUREThis was a lot like Divergent where there’s a ton of decent writing but not much plot movement This started with a decent jump to outside the fence and before we were a uarter way through the book we knew what everything really was That was nice But then it just did a plateau and nothing happened until a little over halfway through the book There should be moments that keep you interested that aren’t all romantic subplot related This is like Writing 101 Come on now childrenHowever I really enjoyed the wrap up of Tris’s death despite it being the route that shouldn’t have been The closure for Tris was in my opinion the best part of the book and interestingly enough not because it was finally over and done with Uriah had a great close Christina was a little better and there was actual friend bonding with her and Toby which likenever happened until just then in that momentEh minor characters aren’t allowed such interactions it seems hide spoiler

Veronica Roth Ì Allegiant book

Ted lies tangled loyalties and painful memoriesBut Tris's new reality is even alarming than the one she left behind Old discoveries are uickly rendered meaningless Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves And once again Tris must battle to comprehend to complexities of human nature and of herself while facing im The book starts off with this epigraph from the Erudite faction manifesto Every uestion that can be answered must be answered or at least engaged Illogical thought processes must be challenged when they ariseAnd then fantastically misses the mark Allegiant was so chock full of plot holes unrealistic situations contrived character development laughable explanations and a whole load of wtf moments And that's not even including the disastrous ending of this book How this book managed to have an epigraph about being logical is a complete mystery to me INCLUDES MASSIVE SPOILERS view spoilerRight from the get go the book wastes little time with the petty conflict between the factions and the factionless The narrative spends a few convenient moments agonizing over the factionless vs factions dilemma and then decides to venture outside the fence Which you know is totally fine because we all assumed that at some point the narrative would come back to resolve that conflict in a reasonable way later on One dead character and a relatively easy stroll through the fence later Tris and company encounter THE WORLD OUTSIDE THE FENCE Behold the moment we have all been waiting for As it turns out the world has apparently been so full of assholes that the government decided to eliminate the genes in citizens that caused dishonestly selfishness cowardice stupidity and aggression Unfortunately this backfired and just created assholes that were asshole y than before So how does a rational government fix this problem Easy Just construct gigantic city sized behavioural experiments all across the country Get volunteers who had their genes screwed with to have their memories wiped and stick them into a city and force them to choose a faction Eventually these people will reproduce enough times until they finally manage to have genetically pure aka Divergent babies that are free from messed up genes I mean duh That's like the most logical thing ever Because its not like bad genes pass down bad genes or anything Silly science In fact this department is just so full of geniuses that they decided that instead of using the genetic engineering prowess they already had to modify the genes of the genetically damaged offspring they were just gonna wait around for 8 generations until the problem just miraculously fixed itself Don't worry Their efforts aren't wasted I've already nominated them for the Nobel Prize in What The Fuckery From then on the book actually gets worse Instead of trying to resolve the old conflict between the factionless and the factions the book tries to take on a whole new conflict between the genetically pure and the genetically damaged making the plot unnecessarily convoluted and leaving little to no room for proper character development Tris and Four's switching POVs only disorient the reader further because as the book continues the characters voices lose their distinctions and start to sound and like each other While Tris may have been tougher in this book than in Insurgent which is literally the only redeeming uality I'm willing to give this book Four's character gets a complete top to bottom deconstruction Gone is the tough strong badass we got to know in the previous two books Instead Roth replaces Four with a bumbling emotional man child who fails to make rational decisions and think straight His judgement is often clouded by his own insecurities and growing fears Before we knew Four as being a character who would never let his fears control him In Allegiant Four's fears have his neck in a leash and tug him in any which direction and he willing goes without even putting up a fightWhich now brings me to the disastrous ending of this book Suddenly tensions are rising between the factionless and the Allegiant the group who wants to re establish the faction system and Evelyn decides she's going to use the Erudite death serum to wipe out her opponents But the Department of Genetic Welfare is having none of her shit so they decide that they're just going to wipe out everyone's memory so they don't kill each other Can I also point out here that they used this memory wiping serum before to trick the general population into thinking that the genetically damaged are alone the cause of the world's problems So you know there wouldn't be massive protests or anything when the government decided to deliberately waste money trying to solve a problem they knew was fucked to begin withA race against the clock ensues where Four goes back to Chicago to try and wipe the memories of his parents to stop them from fighting while Tris stays behind to try and steal this memory serum and use it on the Department themselves The book gets a little preachy right before this part where the characters start talking about how erasing someone's memories is inherently evil unless you have good intentions of course The Department also has good intentions for using this serum on Chicago and saving the lives of thousands of people but fuck logic Our heroes would way rather just watch the people they love kill each other And how exactly does the book wrap up the supposedly exciting and suspenseful conflict between the factionless and the Allegiant that has brewing in the background this whole time Easy Just have a nice Eaton family reunion where Evelyn magically just decides that the years she's spent neglecting her son and fighting for her own idea of justice is utterly useless because she's been transformed by The Power of Love No need to rip apart all of Chicago like she's been planning to her whole life All she needs is her son A few supporting characters die in the book but you don't really care If the author didn't bother spending enough time developing that character why should readers even flinch when they drop dead Of course the book makes these deaths a big deal but you're sitting there like Back in at the Department of Genetic Welfare Caleb is picked for the suicide mission of breaking into the top security vault to steal the memory wiping serum This is only fitting as Caleb is literally the only character who needs to be redeemed for his betrayal in Insurgent I mean the tagline of the book is one choice can define you so if Caleb doesn't own up to this moment he's basically going to be a selfish heartless coward for the rest of the storyOh wait This book hasn't sufficiently fucked up already so instead of using a perfectly good opportunity for a back stabbing character to redeem themselves it's just going to unnecessarily sacrifice the freaking main character because life is cruel and heartless goddammit I could literally write another essay on why this particular ending sucked balls but before some anon messages me saying omgg it's veronica's book and her ending was so tragic but so byootiful don't you know you're not allowed to hate it111 let me explain myself I have no problem with happy endings bittersweet endings sad endings or even unresolved endings AS LONG AS THE ENDING MAKES SENSE WITH THE BODY OF THE WORK This is literally all I ask of any author of any novel From just a character perspective it makes sense that Tris would sacrifice herself for the greater good That's just what she as a selflessly reckless person would do But considering that there was a perfectly good person involved in this ending that needed to be redeemed cough Caleb cough who didn't offer to sacrifice himself to save his sister I'm uestioning the true motive for why this ending was picked We already know that Tris is a character who's willing to sacrifice herself for the greater good Did we learn any new information about her character when she decided to make this sacrifice Wouldn't we have gained a better perspective of Caleb if he had made this choice instead And most importantly wouldn't sparing Tris's life allow the final conclusion of this trilogy to be sound less rushed and less overshadowed by the her death Tris's sacrifice comes off as being meaningless because she doesn't save anyone from dying Had she failed to using the memory serum the worst thing that would have happened was that Chicago would have been reset and the main conflict would have disappeared completely And that doesn't even matter in the end because all the major characters that we are supposed to care about were already inoculated against the memory serum anyway In fact by stealing the memory serum Tris effectively tosses up the fate of Chicago in the air If Four hadn't magically convinced his mother to stop fighting then the city would have been in shreds and people would have died The careless way her death is written and revealed makes the ending look like it was purely written simply for a cheap shock value Cue the forced emotional and dramatic ending where readers drown in a puddle of their feels as we're forced to read Four's tragic reaction to her death The last few chapters including the epilogue are incredibly rushed Literally every single issue in the growing mountain of problems that accumulated over the course of this book are immediately solved without any further complications or commentary because deus ex machina EDIT 71113 The ending is far from being the worst thing about this book but I did read the author's blog post about what she was aiming for Keeping her intentions in mind I still think this ending failed in it's execution Primarily the inorganic way that the events are revealed crushes the effect this ending was trying to achieve EDIT 91113 Another blatant plot hole I'm baffled over Tris discovers that her mother was brought in from the outside to rescue Divergents who were being killed by Jeanine's predecessor Then later on it is revealed that the Bureau supplied Jeanine with the attack simulation serum she used to massacre the Abnegation So the Bureau is apparently so cautious and protective of every Divergent life that they are willing to send in one of their own to save as many of them as possible but helping Jeanine massacre an entire faction that contains Divergents is totally ok with them Why is this link between the Bureau and Jeanine established but never explained at length Did it show us anything other than the fact that this book is riddled with plot holes hide spoiler
