Divergent is a hugely popular YA dystopian series. If you have read it, you really need to! I read books one and two back to back in 2012 (I think, or was it early 2013?). I immediately went online and pre-ordered book three, Allegiant, and like thousands of readers out there, I counted down the days to its release date last fall. Immediately after the publication date, reviews started coming in and surprisingly not all of them were positive.
Having read some of the negative reviews, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I began Allegiant. I was afraid that I would be disappointed but I wasn’t. I found Allegiant to be a solid ending to the Divergent series. The ending may not have been what readers had hoped for (which I think was the crux of most of the negative reviews) but I think it was the right ending. I actually applaud Veronica Roth for being brave enough to write the ending that she believed in knowing that it might anger some of her fans.
I don’t want to say too much about the book for fear of inadvertently including some spoilers so suffice it to say that while I didn’t feel the urgency to finish this book as I did with the other two, I did still enjoy it and am sad that this is the end of the series. I can’t wait to see what Veronica Roth writes next!
