Allegiant by Veronica Roth

Goodreads Summary:
What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?

The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times bestselling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.

My Review:
I have been trying to figure out how to write this review all day. I finished Allegiant last night, in tears. I will keep my review spolier free but, honestly I don't know where to start. Tris's world is turned upside down. In Allegiant you find out how the world became what it is in the books. It has a lot to do with genetics and a government experiment gone wrong. Tris, Four, and their friends learn that they haven't been living in the real world. That they don't really know anything. The group gets out of the city and ends up at The Bureau. A place where the learn the secrets of how their city came to be. Can Tris and Tobias figure out whats going on? Will they all survive this?

Tris has always been one of my favorite female characters. She is strong and fierce. Willing to do anything for the greater good. This is ultimately her weakness as well. She makes a lot of bad decisions. I realized however that she is also only 16. She shouldn't have to be doing all this. She should be going to prom with Tobias!! Ok, sorry, back on track. Tobias and her friends ground her. They keep her in the now. I felt bad that they had to try to save the people they hate. 

Tobias...This was the first time I was disappointed in him. He chose to be with the rebellion at The Bureau way to easily. I was like, they are lying!!! Think about it! I was so frustrated! He was also very much a great boyfriend to Tris. Minus the rebellion part where she told him he was being stupid. He loved her. He would die for he. They are the perfect couple in more ways then one. 

This is the hardest review I have ever written. I honestly skipped over a lot of the genetic talk. It felt like a filler for the story but, whatever. The end of the book is emotionally traumatizing. I cried for like 10 minutes. I felt like this review was all over the place because I am still reeling from it. I think it would have been a good ending without what happened too. 

My Reaction:

I couldn't have read that right...goes back to re-read

This can't be happening...!

More ugly crying...

The next day...
