My thoughts about Veronica Roth's Allegiant. I did this for my English class last spring and thought I'd upload it here.

Another great dystopia

 

Veronica Roth’s Divergent trilogy has become widely popular amongst teenagers in the past few years. Its third and last book Allegiant (2013) is an exciting and captivating story about how the problem the people are dealing with solves.

The series is set in the future, in Chicago. The city is divided into five different factions, each having a characteristic they value. At 16, each person must choose a faction they think represents themselves the best. The first two books of the trilogy are set in the city, but the third one tells us what’s beyond it. Tris, the other main character, leaves Chicago with her friends to find out the truth about their lives. I can’t tell you what that is because it would spoil the whole reading experience. 

I enjoyed reading Allegiant immensely. It’s one of those books you pick up and can’t put down until you’ve read it. What the people find out after they leave the city is a bit shocking, and the unfairness and inhumanity of it kept bothering me until the very end. It’s probably one of the reasons I liked the book. The plot was thrilling and the characters all developed differently throughout the book, which was interesting to read. I liked the style Roth has written her book and the way she kept changing the point of view between the two main characters, Tris and Four. The text was nice to read because it was fluent and quite easy to follow.

I would definitely recommend Allegiant and the whole series if you like books that have action, interesting characters and make you think about different aspects of this world.
