Review | Allegiant by Veronica Roth (Divergent #3)

Allegiant Divergent 3 by Veronica RothWARNING: THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS!!!

Allegiant is a brave conclusion to Veronica Roth’s best-selling Divergent trilogy. While I felt Allegiant was the weakest of the series in terms of plot and pace, I was impressed that Roth allowed her characters to be true to themselves, even though that meant denying her readers the satisfaction of a happily ever after.

I didn’t find Allegiant as entertaining as the previous two installments in the Divergent series. I’ve tried to find solid reasons why.

Review | Insurgent by Veronica Roth (Divergent #2)

Insurgent by Veronica Roth book coverEvery bit as good as the first volume of Veronica Roth’s Divergent series, Insurgent is another entertaining read.

(In case you don’t know what the series is about – please see the official blurb at the bottom of this review… and here’s my previous review of Divergent)

My take:

One of the things I liked immediately about Insurgent was that the story picks up exactly where Divergent left off and gets on with it. There’s no dithering about to remind us what happened in the last book. Instead we are dropped back into the action as the characters have to deal with the fall out from the devastating events at the end of Divergent.
