READING: Allegiant - Yay or Nay? I say ...

...NAY!
 
 
Read a tease HERE.
 
What it's all about {via 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.
 
 
What I liked:
 
-Um. Still trying to figure it out.
 
What I disliked:
 
-Normally I LOVE alternating chapter perspectives. In this book - it didn't make sense - ESP since the other two books weren't like that
-I didn't like the direction the story went
-Book 2 & 3 of this series totally take away from the awesomeness of book 1. It's so sad to me. I was super excited for this series and now feel completely let down.
-The Ending.
-Tris' voice and decisions and Four's voice period.
 
I think I could go on with dislikes but I'll limit it to just five.
 
Did you read this? Please tell me I'm not the only one who hated it.

  1. Uh oh. This makes me nervous. I just started Allegiant, and while I'm really intrigued on the way this story seems to be going, I'm getting increasingly nervous because most people felt the same as you did. Thanks for your thoughts, can't wait to compare this with my final thoughts!

  2. I didnt love it....but I didnt HATE it. I just felt like the alternating voices, I couldn't tell the difference and I like to tell the difference between characters.
    It was totally different than the other two books, for sure. I dunno. I wasn't in love.
    I feel like I dont have a great perspective on book 2 because I was reading too many books in this genre at that time and got sick of them.

  3. I didn't hate this book. It had some really sad parts, but the series overall is quite a ride. I'm glad I read it.
