A fine book with a controversial ending. It didn't work for me, but I can accept that lots of people liked it.
Eric Edstrom is on page 30 of 526 of Allegiant: Not a fan of Tobias POV chapters at first, but I'm growing to accept them.

Probably don't need to write a review of this one. I decided I needed to educate myself on what the fuss was. Really enjoyed it.

“Breyona didn’t have to force a laugh. “Fellowship? Who do you think you are? Freedo the hobbit?”
“It’s Frodo,” he said over his shoulder. “And if I was a character from L.O.T.R., I’d obviously by Strider.” Shaking his head, he continued down the trail, mumbling obscenities.
“What is L.O.T.R.?” Shiv asked. “Who is this Freedo?”
Both questions brought exasperated sighs from Bronson. “It stands for Lord of the Rings. Don’t you ever see any movies?”
“Weren’t they books before they were movies?” Em asked.
“They wrote them after,” Bronson said.
Breyona winked at Danny. “That Freedo was hot,” she said loud enough for Bronson to hear. “Even with those dumb-ass furry feet, he’s my kind of cute.”
Bronson threw his hands up. “Frodo. It’s Frodo. And he’s not hot!”

“Is it nice, my preciousss? Is it juicy? Is it scrumptiously crunchable?”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

“But you have so much in common. You're both from strange little backwater planets. You both have odd powers. You're male and she's female. What more do you need? Believe me, buddy, if I were you, I'd go right up there and ask her if she wants to ride on my rancor.”
Dave Wolverton, The Courtship of Princess Leia
