Review of Allegiant, by Veronica Roth - Updated


After sleeping on it I have decided to review this book, but it is hard to review with out spoiling it.  SO be aware when reading my review!

Description:  (borrowed the description from the Amazon web page)
What if your whole world was a lie?What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?  What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?

My Review:

This is hard to review! I don't even know if you can really call it a review...More like a harping!  I was so very excited for this book!  It arrived on my door step Tuesday night, but I didn't get a chance to read it until yesterday.  Let me start by saying a good book is like a good movie for me, but if said movie, or book has a bad ending (even if it was good all the way till the ending) then it ruins the whole thing for me!  You always remember the ending!  If the ending isn't good, then it just doesn't go down as a "good" book for me.

I LOVED the first two books in this series, Divergent and Insurgent!  They were FANTASTIC!  I love that the main character was a strong woman, even when people around her made stupid choices she remained strong!  I loved that about the books!  Tris was by far one of my favorite characters to follow.

Yesterday, as I read Allegiant, I turned and turned the pages, and then I got towards the end of the book, and something happened to make me want to put the book down and not even finish.  That just made me sad!  I do not like it when a series that I read starts out Fantastic and ends blah!  Granted, I am not the author, and it is the authors prerogative to take the book in any direction they want, but as a reader I was extremely disappointed in this book!  I don't want to give away the ending, so I will be careful, but I did NOT like it!  I know that not all books are going to tie up into a pretty little bow (much to my dismay) but this one ended in a way I totally wasn't expecting and in a way that made me not even like the book!  

I guess the best way to put it, is I am sad!  I am sad it ended the way it did, and I am sad that I didn't love it!  

My Rating:
I give Allegiant 2 start out of 5 **
the only reason I am giving it two stars is because the first two books were so great I didn't have the heart to give this one a single star.
