I have sooo many mixed feelings about The Evolution of Mara Dyer. It’s not that that I don’t like it, I LOVE it. I just had SO many feeling go through me while I was reading it. It was surprising really. I’ve never felt very attached to the character but I felt Mara’s feelings as my own.
I must admit, the beginning was a bit slow for me. But around the 100 pages, I felt like I was reading too slow and too fast at the same time. Too slow because I want to know how it ends already. Too fast because I don’t want the book to end. The last book is coming out in June, JUNE! And then I’ll still feel like I was tortured because people around me that I know through the blogosphere will get the ARC while I have to wait until it’s published and have to wait again because it might still not be released in Malaysia.
I think I just felt about EVERYTHING throughout the book. Mostly frustrated, annoyed, pissed off, furious. I felt Mara’s desperation as my own. But Hodkin put Noah there and balanced it all out. I think I died a little inside when Noah went all sweet.
(view spoiler)[F**k Mara. I’m going to kill Jude & Dr. Kells myself. I think I might have a supernatural ability too :P (hide spoiler)]["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>(less)

I'm gonna write spoilers for my review of Allegiant cause GR has an option to hide my review because of spoilers but if you still haven't read it and you clicked it. That's your fault :P
One thing I forgot about writers is that they have the free will to kill of the main character off the plot just because it's their book and that they're the writer of it. Oops.
But... I didn't rate it 3 stars because she killed Tris. That's not my reason at all. But starting from Insurgent I've already kind of lost interest in the series but read it anyway. Sure I was devastated that Tris died but not as devastated as I am with the plot for this whole book.
I was kind of really excited to read Allegiant because everyone reads it, I'm forced to read it, because I have to complete my Divergent collection, because I need to know how it ends and it's going to be made into a MOVIE. While I'm excited for the movie too, I still don't want the movie to destroy my reading experience so that's why I read it. Plus, I'm super bored. It's school holidays now.
The beginning made me yawn. It was really slow and all they did was wait and do nothing. It began to progress sometime around the 100th page but I kind of stopped and reread City of Bones(because my memory of it starts to fade and it was right after I watched the movie). But then I stopped City of Bones and forced myself to pick Allegiant back up. The rest of the book kept me engaged most of the time. And OF COURSE I just had to cry at the end. But I was still hoping for a better ending to a series other than this :/
NOTE: I probably kind of lost interest in it halfway through because I've been watching too much X-Men, The Avengers, Captain America, Iron Man, Batman and Wolverine. And you know how Robert Downey Jr is. So I kinda craved more sarcasm maybe that's why I picked up City of Bones. But even so, Allegiant could've have a better ending though. Everything is literally in ruins.(less)
