Review: Allegiant by Veronica Roth

Today I finished reading Allegiant by Veronica Roth, the final book in the Divergent series. 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

There were many things I liked in this book and many things I didn’t like, but overall I liked it. 

This book switched POV almost every chapter, between Tris and Tobias. It was nice getting someone else’s perspective but I really had to pay attention to the start of each chapter to see whose POV I was reading. 

There were a lot of surprises in this book, unexpected twists that I greatly appreciate. I liked how everything wasn’t completely predictable. There was a lot of character development in this book, I wish it didn’t take three books for it to happen though. There’s a lot of characters that played key roles but we hardly knew anything about them which made them get overlooked. 

Tris, I occasionally have a hard time liking her. She’s a typical teenager, she doesn’t think things through and she makes rash decisions. She has a need to always be right and is quick to bring up everyone’s mistakes but gets very defensive when someone brings up hers. She has a hard time seeing past her own judgement, can be blinded by hatred and has a hard time changing her opinions. 

All I wanted while reading this book was for Tris to be wrong just once. Her always being right is unrealistic and makes her a hard relatable character. 

Tobias gets on my nerves almost as much as Tris does, but in the end, I do really like both characters.

From the first book Uriah and Natalie Prior were my favorite characters, with Christina coming in a close third, and this book made me love Uriah and Natalie so much more.

This book has a lot of deaths in it. There is so many different things going on and a lot of characters lose their lives. The last few chapters of the book had me in tears. 

I would read Allegiant again, I thought it was the best one in the series.
