A good book can take you away for a little while, a great book can move you. This book moved me. I am alternating between grief, numbness, and wanting to do something brave. This book makes me want to be brave. Even though tears were streaming down my face I knew that this was the perfect ending to this series. I know that some (and the more that I look at other reviews, a lot) may hate this ending but to me it represents every thing this series is trying to say. Books like this just strengthen my love of books. So well done Veronica Roth, you've created characters that I will always love and never forget and you've made me want to be brave again. (Ever since I finished this book I have had "Brave" by Sara Bareilles stuck in my head. It feels like my own little theme song right now.) This was well worth skipping studying for my mid-term that is today. This book was heart-breaking, beautiful, and inspiring. Who among us will be brave when it counts the most? I will. I will stand up and be brave.
(Reading updates after the break.)
Oh my god...I've just finished it and I can't control my emotions. That has to be one of the best endings to a series that I have ever read. Absolutely brilliant. I know that some people will hate it, but I think that those who do hate it never really understood the message behind the books. My review will come later when I can control my emotions. Well done Veronica Roth!!
Tris and Tobias's world have been turned upside down and I'm not sure I like where this is going. All I know is that I don't like Nita. I've been yelling at my Kindle every time she shows up. This book started off really good, but once the secrets were starting to be revealed it went in a different direction, and I'm not quite sure I like that direction. I don't know...
I have been reading this every chance that I got today. I love that this one alternates between Tris and Tobias. It really enhances the story getting to see things from Tobias's point-of-view. So I've gotten to the point that I know what the 'allegiant' are, and I am curious to see what happens with them. I will try to keep my reading updates spoiler-free so that I don't ruin anything for anyone else. As for right now I am really hooked in the story and eager to read more.
