Allegiant

by Veronica Roth

It’s hard to talk about a book like this without spoilers, because this book changes and redefines everything that had happened in the series before now.

I can tell you that Tris and Tobias begin to learn the truth about their futuristic Chicago; they travel outside of the city and meet people and their world is changed forever. I still like Roth’s writing. This is told alternately by Tris and Tobias which gives us a chance to understand some of Tobias’ sometimes-mysterious motivations. There are themes of forgiveness and sacrifice and love and friendship and we learn over and over again that no character is truly good or bad, but somewhere in between.

At first I had a hard time loving it. I loved Divergent and the end of Insurgent, and the things that made this book so different were jarring to me. But in the second half, I had to read nonstop, and the ending was unexpected and series changing.
