Allegiant by Veronica Roth

Pages: 526
Goodreads rating: 3.79/5 stars
My rating: 4/5 stars
Genre: Young Adult, Dystopia

Summary (Goodreads):
The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories. 

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love

My Review:
Allegiant is one of the most anticipated novels in 2013. I can't hide my excitement when I bought this and read it as much as possible. Hearing all those negative thoughts about this made me nervous as well..

Now that I've finished this all I can say is that it is unbelievably heartbreaking.

I swear. The last chapters of this book made my jaw dropped, I'm really shocked of what happened and it made me WEPT. As far as I could remember, I've never WEPT because of a dystopia novel and this is the first EVER. I don't know what to say and it took me a while to gather all my thoughts of how will I review this. I can now grieve with those people who have read this.

It's still a good book for me, the twists and new revelations about the world outside the factions are really good. Though I find it complicated and hard to absorb it all, still it gave me the thrill of excitement. I am going to miss everything in Divergent trilogy. I fell in love with this trilogy as well as to the characters particularly Tris and Four. No matter how sad the ending is, I still loved and enjoyed this.

Favorite quotes:

“There are so many ways to be brave in this world. Sometimes bravery involves laying down your life for something bigger than yourself, or for someone else. Sometimes it involves giving up everything you have ever known, or everyone you have ever loved, for the sake of something greater.

But sometimes it doesn't.

Sometimes it is nothing more than gritting your teeth through pain, and the work of every day, the slow walk toward a better life. 

That is the sort of bravery I must have now.” 

“She taught me all about real sacrifice. That it should be done from love... That it should be done from necessity, not without exhausting all other options. That it should be done for people who need your strength because they don't have enough of their own.”

To those who haven't read it: Read it now and Be brave.
