Divergent (Divergent #1) Review
Insurgent (divergent #2) Review
By Veronica Roth
One choice will define you.
What if your whole world was a lie?
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 both Tris and Tobias point of view.
I'm not going to rate this one, because I feel like this is a book that can't be rated, and I'm just not ready yet.
You broke me Roth. I will never forgive you for that ending. Ever.
I am supposed to write a review when all I want to do is cry. This is the hardest part a book blogger have to go trough - Having to face a book that broke you, and even worse, put word to it.
I don't know how good this review will be, so if it sucks, I'm sorry.
Allegiant starts of around where we left in Insurgent and things escalate quickly.
And when I say quickly I mean real quickly, and many authors would have failed with making it all work but of course VR did.
We get to meet a lot of new people which was some how confusing in the beginning because I didn't what this even had to do with the whole Divergent trilogy, but then I realized that nothing in this book is like the other two books. This one is packed with insensitivity and unexpected turns that left me having a hard time breathing correctly. And that scared the crap out of me. Veronica became something she's been telling us to be trough Divergent. She became brave.
There wasn't so much character-development in Allegiant but one person I feel like did change was Tris. Tris and I have a lot in common and I really look up to her. Her power somehow makes me want to be stronger too. She isn't the small little insecure child any longer. She is a woman now.
I feel like reading from Tobias POV gives us a better understanding about him as a character, he isn't really a wordy person, so we never really knew him. Until now.
People talk about the ending and how amazing it was because she took a risk. How she is so brave for doing so and that more YA authors should do so but do you know what I think? I call it bull.
I felt betrayed by that ending. It felt like a personal punishment of some sort. One I will never forget, never accept. It was like being stabbed in the heart over and over again but Life wont let you die so you have no other choice than to
endure what is unbearable.
You have to continue with your life.
So you bear it.
Good bye Divergent.
