Let me entertain you, no wait isn't that taken already. Reading and writing are my passion just ask the neglected family.

Disappointing - Allegiant - Veronica Roth

Tris and Tobias are finally out of the city limits and come face to face with the real world, or do they? There are new revelations about the outside world, the troubles, the real reason for the fence, for the factions. Tris has to dig deep, to work out what is right and wrong. Who she can really trust when things begin to fall apart?

Those that have travelled with them really come into their own. You get to see the rounded characters that they have become and understand why they make the choices that they do.

Like the others, the writing style is not to my taste but the stories so far have kept my interest. I have to say that this one did not. The twisting relationship between Tris and Tobias is still an interesting one, which left you guessing if they could get through this latest fight as a couple. When we finally find out about the city, the factions and the experiments I found the direction it was going was an obvious one. As for the reactions of the people from the outer world and the GD (trying not to provide spoilers) it was a predicable prejudice. There was little action throughout until the end. And what an ending, I have to admire the author’s choice, it was a great way to finish the book and I shed a tear of two. It just didn’t make up for the rest of it.

Once you start the series there is a need to know Tris’ story and therefore Allegiant is worth a read, though for me it was the weakest of the three.
