Allegiant, Book 3 in the Divergent Series, by Veronica Roth

allegiant-book-cover-high-resThe first book in the series was rocky but it had a good ending. Book two was awesome. Book 3, Allegiant, was like WTF? :/

Oh you want more of a review? Okay, okay, fine. The first 50 or so pages were ok. We finally get to see what is outside of the city and we get the BIG reveal of how Chicago became what it is in the series. But the BIG reveal was LAME. All the characters walk around devastated by the truth, while I’m like that’s it? Seriously? Ugh. For me that is where Roth lost me. There was a total disconnect between what the characters were ‘feeling,’ which was 10000000% unbelievable and what I was ‘feeling.’ Obviously the two did not mesh and then reading this became PAINFUL. P.A.I.N.F.U.L. I really had hoped that somehow Roth would or could save this.

Allegiant was so chock full of plot holes, unrealistic situations, crappy character “development”, laughable explanations, and a whole load of “WTF” moments. Honestly, I think this is a great example of an author who did not know where this series was going or did but had no outline / idea of how to get there. I did enjoy the last 20 or pages. So, basically if I hadn’t read 80-85% of the book or the middle, I would have liked this. I’m seriously upset that I avoiding doing homework to read this. Yup, homework is better than this. Such a huge disappointment. :/
