Ok so I feel like the only person that thought this book was awful... No real depth, slow, the pointless bickering between Tris and Four, characters lost their way (Peter suddenly hated himself) and the new characters were all 2 dimensional.

The story had more holes in it then Tris at the end of the book!!

I unlike the other initiatives on here actually felt that all the lessons learnt by Tris wouldn't have pushed her into a situation that would have let her die so easily. She had fought when she didn't want to live and now she didn't want to die she managed to get shot by a guy in a wheelchair and just gave up really!!!

If VR was dead set on killing her off she should have come up with a more thought out and Tris like ending but I think this sums up the book Ill thought out!!!

My honest thoughts are this either VR stole the manuscripts to this series and Allegiant was only a 1st draft that some how got published or she wrote the first two and either couldn't come up with an ending or wasn't happy with it so a ghost writer wrote it. The style and pace are so different I couldn't believe this was the same author.

I loved the first two books and I will b watching insurgent when it comes out but unless there is a major upgrade to Allegiant I will be giving it a miss. Being brave dauntless style to go against the faction and maybe some of you will say it's too Candor or maybe I'm just divergent????

I honestly totoally agree. I  tink that if VR couldnt come u with a thoughtful creative way to kill off Tris she should have left it open ended. Tris has fought through very situation, managing to escape crowds of guards and soliders. I think it would have been interesting to see where Tobias and Tris would have settled down and what they would have done as a couple and VR could have always created another issue for them to fight. I recently saw some fam fiction called "convergent" in the story tris doesnt actually die and is trapped in the bureau and her death was faked. I think that would be a very interesting concept for VR to run with and Im sure it would satisfy all of our Divergent cravings!!! 

What do you think??

I've read a few fan fictions now and they are all better than the VR end unfortunelty depending on the deal she signed with the studio they may not have the rights to change the ending into something decent? So we may just have to rely on the fans being more imaginative and creative then Roth!!

Andi,

It is that the third book is written in a different style to the first 2 books and is perhaps just not a style you prefer.  

After reading book 1 I did the quiz to find out what faction I would be and came up Divergent; quite proud of it at the time and as I read through the 2nd book I did the quizzes again and similar results; divergent outcome!

I just paused reading book 3 to answer the door to some Jehovah Witnesses and my divergence was effective on them in that they agreed there were many ways to look at the world. 

There are so many answers to questions in what people read, fiction and non-fiction sometimes they ask even more questions.  The themes of these books can explored and different likes/ dislikes will be decided by different readers.Another hour or so and I'll see how book 3 ends, it's style is different to books 1 and 2 perhaps because the author is trying to conclude with protagonist coming together with someone else's ideas and it the author's choice to change style to show changes happen .... 

So you don't like book 3, it's not for you. It's ok not to like all the books in a series.  One thing from this trilogy is that not everything is for everyone but no one should be fighting about our differences we should celebrating them.  Of course there are many themes and each of us will take what we do from what we read!  


Write your own fan fiction; that is what it is!  Everyone has their own stories and ideals in their head. The style of writing is vastly different in book 3.  Hunger Games has similar themes but is a different story line and the writing style is more consistent through the 3 books. 

(The worst trilogy ever written will always be and it was edited and published from fan fiction. I am certain no other published writer can write as badly (it's themes were more adult than these, but the author executed them badly with a shockingly poor standard of writing)- the film wasn't too bad because of it's content it had to be done sensitively but the film was off the back of the world's worst written trilogy.) 

Writing fan fiction is easier than writing a book on it's own because the idea has already been placed.  Some fan fiction has been inspirational for a few good books though. 

I thoroughly agree that the book 3 is not written the same as book 1 and 2.

I definitely agree - the third book was really a downer and it was too depressing what with everyone dying and stuff. I hated all the bickering between four and tris and there was too much Nita stuff. The ending was the worst part - totally unlike tris to just give up and die, especially since she just realised she wanted to live. I kept waiting for her to wake up but she never did. And I can't believe she let caleb live when he was pretty much hated by everyone and had no family left. Well, I can believe that tris would do that because of who she is all about sacrifice. Anyway apart from that the book was great!
