Allegiant (Divergent, Book 3)

Allegiant  - Veronica Roth So a review, of this book and this trilogy in general. If you haven't read it and want to it might be a good idea to skip this review to avoid spoilers. This book and the trilogy was easy to read, which is good if it's what you are looking for. Thing I didn't like about Allegiant is that it introduced another point view, Tobias's. Since I've read that the book won't have a conventional happy end I was already suspicious at that point of Tris's survival and as the book progressed I was more and more convinced that she won't make it, turns out I was right. I just hoped that she would have a more meaningful and powerful death, not oh I'm immune to death serum, but yeah I was stupid and left my gun outside because I didn't think I'd need it anymore. I think that Tris's death was just a way for Roth to provoke emotions and tears at the end of the book. I don't mind killing off characters (even main ones) but give me a good reason for it. Another thing that bugged me about two points of view was inconsistency with the other books (she should have done it from the beginning) and the fact that I constantly had to think, oh whose point view am I reading now, if only there was more differences in the style of writing between point views it would have been much better. So there are many comparisons with this and Hunger games trilogy, I would say they are pretty different and the only thing that connects them is that both are YA dystopias. Do I like this or Hunger games better, well I must say my vote goes to Hunger games. But I enjoyed reading Divergent and I don't regret it, it just isn't as good some other books.
