Book Quality: Publisher Quality; ISBN ; Related ISBNs: ; Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers UK; Date of Addition: 03/ 08/ The Divergent (PDF,ePub) series is quickly becoming very popular amongst readers. Insurgent and Allegiant are also great pdf reads. The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times bestselling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that captivated millio.
Don't worry. Their efforts aren't wasted. From then on, the book actually gets worse.
Instead of trying to resolve the old conflict between the factionless and the factions, the book tries to take on a whole new conflict between the genetically pure and the genetically damaged, making the plot unnecessarily convoluted and leaving little to no room for proper character development.
Tris and Four's switching POVs only disorient the reader further because as the book continues, the characters voices lose their distinctions and start to sound more and more like each other. While Tris may have been tougher in this book than in Insurgent which is literally the only redeeming quality I'm willing to give this book , Four's character gets a complete top-to-bottom deconstruction.
Gone is the tough, strong, badass we got to know in the previous two books. Instead, Roth replaces Four with a bumbling emotional man child who fails to make rational decisions and think straight.
His judgement is often clouded by his own insecurities and growing fears. Before we knew Four as being a character who would never let his fears control him.
In Allegiant, Four's fears have his neck in a leash and tug him in any which direction and he willing goes without even putting up a fight. Which now brings me to the disastrous ending of this book.
Suddenly, tensions are rising between the factionless and the Allegiant the group who wants to re-establish the faction system and Evelyn decides she's going to use the Erudite death serum to wipe out her opponents. But the Department of Genetic Welfare is having none of her shit so they decide that they're just going to wipe out everyone's memory so they don't kill each other.
Can I also point out here that they used this memory-wiping serum before to trick the general population into thinking that the genetically damaged are alone the cause of the world's problems? So you know, there wouldn't be massive protests or anything when the government decided to deliberately waste money trying to solve a problem they knew was fucked to begin with.
A race against the clock ensues where Four goes back to Chicago to try and wipe the memories of his parents to stop them from fighting while Tris stays behind to try and steal this memory serum and use it on the Department themselves. The book gets a little preachy right before this part where the characters start talking about how erasing someone's memories is inherently evilunless you have good intentions, of course.
The Department also has good intentions for using this serum on Chicago and saving the lives of thousands of people, but fuck logic.
Our heroes would way rather just watch the people they love kill each other. And how exactly does the book wrap up the supposedly exciting and suspenseful conflict between the factionless and the Allegiant that has brewing in the background this whole time? No need to rip apart all of Chicago like she's been planning to her whole life. All she needs is her son. A few supporting characters die in the book, but you don't really care.
If the author didn't bother spending enough time developing that character, why should readers even flinch when they drop dead? Of course, the book makes these deaths a big deal but you're sitting there like Back in at the Department of Genetic Welfare, Caleb is picked for the suicide mission of breaking into the top-security vault to steal the memory-wiping serum.
This is only fitting as Caleb is literally the only character who needs to be redeemed for his betrayal in Insurgent. I mean, the tagline of the book is "one choice can define you" so if Caleb doesn't own up to this moment he's basically going to be a selfish, heartless, coward for the rest of the story. Oh wait. This book hasn't sufficiently fucked up already so instead of using a perfectly good opportunity for a back-stabbing character to redeem themselves, it's just going to unnecessarily sacrifice the freaking main character because life is cruel and heartless goddammit!
I could literally write another essay on why this particular ending sucked balls, but before some anon messages me saying "omgg it's veronica's book and her ending was so tragic but so byootiful don't you know you're not allowed to hate it??! This is literally all I ask of any author of any novel. From just a character perspective, it makes sense that Tris would sacrifice herself for the greater good. That's just what she, as a selflessly reckless person, would do. We already know that Tris is a character who's willing to sacrifice herself for the greater good.
Did we learn any new information about her character when she decided to make this sacrifice? FSC is a non-profit international organisation established to promote the responsible management of the worlds forests.

Wrong answers must be corrected. Correct answers must be affirmed. From the Erudite faction manifesto chap ter one Tr i s I pace in our cell in Erudite headquarters, her words echoing in my mind: My name will be Edith Prior, and there is much I am happy to forget.
So youve never seen her before? Not even in pictures? Christina says, her wounded leg propped up on a pillow.
She was shot during our desperate attempt to reveal the Edith Prior video to our city. At the time we had no idea what it would say, or that it would shatter the foundation we stand on, the factions, our identities. Is she a grandmother or an aunt or something? I told you, no, I say, turning when I reach the wall. Prior iswasmy fathers name, so it would have to be on his side of the family. But Edith is an Abnegation name, and my fathers relatives must have been Erudite, so.
So she must be older, Cara says, leaning her head against the wall. From this angle she looks just like her brother, Will, my friend, the one I shot. Then she straightens, and the ghost of him is gone. A few generations back. An ancestor. The word feels old inside me, like crumbling brick. I touch one wall of the cell as I turn around.
The panel is cold and white. My ancestor, and this is the inheritance she passed to me: freedom from the factions, and the knowledge that my Divergent identity is more important than I could have known. My existence is a signal that we need to leave this city and offer our help to whoever is outside it. I want to know, Cara says, running her hand over her face.
I need to know how long weve been here. Would you stop pacing for one minute? I stop in the middle of the cell and raise my eyebrows at her. Sorry, she mumbles. Its okay, Christina says. Weve been in here way too long.
Its been days since Evelyn mastered the chaos in the lobby of Erudite headquarters with a few short commands and had all the prisoners hustled away to cells on the third floor.
A factionless woman came to doctor our wounds and distribute painkillers, and weve eaten and showered several times, but no one has told us whats going on outside.
No matter how forcefully Ive asked them. I thought Tobias would come by now, I say, dropping to the edge of my cot. Where is he? Maybe hes still angry that you lied to him and went behind his back to work with his father, Cara says. I glare at her.
Four wouldnt be that petty, Christina says, either to chastise Cara or to reassure me, Im not sure.

Somethings probably going on thats keeping him away. He told you to trust him. In the chaos, when everyone was shouting and the factionless were trying to push us toward the staircase, I curled my fingers in the hem of his shirt so I wouldnt lose him.
He took my wrists in his hands and pushed me away, and those were the words he said. Trust me. Go where they tell you. Im trying, I say, and its true. Im trying to trust him. But every part of me, every fiber and every nerve, is straining toward freedom, not just from this cell but from the prison of the city beyond it. I need to see whats outside the fence. And with that memory is another one, one of waiting for Beatrice Prior to go to her death, of my fists against the door, of her legs slung across Peters arms when he told me she was just drugged.
I hate this place. It isnt as clean as it was when it was the Erudite compound; now it is ravaged by war, bullet holes in the walls and the broken glass of shattered lightbulbs everywhere. I walk over dirty footprints and beneath flickering lights to her cell and I am admitted without question, because I bear the factionless symbolan empty circleon a black band around my arm and Evelyns features on my face.
Tobias Eaton was a shameful name, and now it is a powerful one. Tris crouches on the ground inside, shoulder to shoulder with Christina and diagonal from Cara.
My Tris should look pale and smallshe is pale and small, after allbut instead the room is full of her. Her round eyes find mine and she is on her feet, her arms wound tightly around my waist and her face against my chest.
I squeeze her shoulder with one hand and run my other hand over her hair, still surprised when her hair stops above her neck instead of below it. I was happy when she cut it, because it was hair for a warrior and not a girl, and I knew that was what she would need.
Howd you get in? Im Tobias Eaton, I say, and she laughs. I keep forgetting. She pulls away just far enough to look at me. There is a wavering expression in her eyes, like she is a heap of leaves about to be scattered by the wind.
Whats happening? What took you so long?
She sounds desperate, pleading. For all the horrible memories this place carries for me, it carries more for her, the walk to her execution, her brothers betrayal, the fear serum. I have to get her out.
Cara looks up with interest. I feel uncomfortable, like I have shifted in my skin and it doesnt quite fit anymore. I hate having an audience.
Evelyn has the city under lockdown, I say. No one goes a step in any direction without her say-so. A few days ago she gave a speech about uniting against our oppressors, the people outside.
She takes a vial from her pocket and dumps the contents into her mouth painkillers for the bullet wound in her leg, I assume. I slide my hands into my pockets. Evelynand a lot of people, actuallythink we shouldnt leave the city just to help a bunch of people who shoved us in here so they could use us later. They want to try to heal the city and solve our own problems instead of leaving to solve other peoples.
Im paraphrasing, of course, I say.
I suspect that opinion is very convenient for my mother, because as long as were all contained, shes in charge. The second we leave, she loses her hold. Tris rolls her eyes.In fact, by stealing the memory serum, Tris effectively tosses up the fate of Chicago in the air.
And that doesn't even matter in the end because all the major characters that we are supposed to care about were already inoculated against the memory serum anyway. I could literally write another essay on why this particular ending sucked balls, but before some anon messages me saying "omgg it's veronica's book and her ending was so tragic but so byootiful don't you know you're not allowed to hate it??!
