The third book.......I LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!! I HATED the ending.... I LOVED most of the book. Up until the very end it was AMAZING!!! I loved Four and Tris in this book, I think it fits well with the other books and I don't think V.R could have done better... Then the ending. I cried. Sorry if u haven't read it yet, but... Yeah, I'm trying to forget the ending ever happened. Though, it seemed more real and what life can be like. There will always be losses, even for the heroes. Doesn't mean I have ...more

Yes, I know these are young adult books. As such, my expectations of complexity and maturity are not high. I enjoy reading young adult books at times because they can be a pleasant way to pass the time: engaging, but not requiring much thought, resonance with characters, and a healthy dose of triumph of the soul and idealism. In that sense, the series started out meeting my expectations. It was pleasant to read. I was engaged. It wasn't very well written, but the plot was still exciting. The pre ...more

This series had a really interesting concept, but it is deeeeeefinitely written for teenagers and doesn't quite manage to transcend the genere to be something interesting for older readers. Unlike series such as Hunger Games or Chaos Walking, I felt like this Divergent didn't manage to mature and explore the adult concepts brought up throughout the series, and treated some very serious issues rather blithely or surficially. Compelling, but by the third book I was dead sick of the series, mainly ...more

A test of Love and Bravery...

I decided to review the Divergent series as a whole.

I give this series 5 Stars.

Once I picked up Divergent I was hooked. I loved it and immediatly picked up Insurgent after I finished Divergent.

I think I read through the first two books within a week and was aching for the next.
I honestly fell in love with Tris and Tobias and their friends and enemies.
When Allegiant finally came out, I was afraid to read it because of all the reviews complaining about the ending. Did

4 Stars - Fast, fun, unexpected and new. The divergent series is a great book for YA's looking for an enjoyable read. Great introductory series by a new author, Roth has made a solid foothold with Divergent. Worth the read for sure(book > movie)!

The divergent series is a quick easy read, aimed at quenching the thirst of YA readers. It has the love story, the overcoming ones self doubt, secret plots, a lot of action, bravery, murder, sabotage, backstabbing and so on. It is overall

(This review contains spoilers)

One of the most poorly written trilogies I've read in a long time.

I spent most of the three novels wishing Veronica Roth would dust off her thesaurus and use a some synonyms for the verb 'says'. How about: scoffs / urges / whines / snaps / retorts / declares / suggests / interjects, just to mix things up a bit?

Roth also failed to construct a believable new world. Instead, all she did was describe a reality in which the USA is the largest geographical concept (did

I became interested in this book because of the movie. I wanted to read it before watching it. That was way back in March. I'm a pretty fast reader but this just kept dragging on and on. I have the gift and the curse of having to finish reading what I start even if it makes me want to projectile vomit. The first book was really interesting and kept my attention pretty well but the other two were just a complete mess. The plot moved haphazardly and people died before I really got a chance to know ...more

Divergent is one of my favorite books and is a part of a trilogy but if you ask me after reading the other two books it is a better standalone book! I really liked the series but felt it lost what made it special in the first book and part of the second. The third book really lost all of the feelings that I had for the first, and so much of it seemed out of character!

Just a few spoilers don't read if you haven't read all 3. I am proud to say I read all 3 books within a week. The first I loved! Great story line just amazing. The second one oh my god! The end was sorta epic and I love how you can see how much Tobias trusts Tris' judgment kind of gives you how much he really loves her. The third one made it hard for me to breathe I want to just forget the ending! As soon as I read the end of chapter 50 I closed the book started crying punched a pillow opened it ...more

I just finished this series, and unfortunately it had diminishing returns for me. The first book was a fun read and I went through it really quickly. I think what I liked about it was the world-building, the dystopian Chicago setting, the coming of age story and the young, sheltered heroine who discovers her strength. Then the real plot happened and it was all downhill from there. The second book was okay, in a PTSD sort of way, and the third book I read quickly just because I was ready to be do ...more

After a discussion with my husband, I agree that this book has intriguing idea about society and the way it shapes you to meet their needs: warriors in Dauntless, good people in Abnegation, inventors in Erudite etc. And when someone of you rebel against the rule, lets say a smart person has to be in Erudite but he is not only smart but he can be good (basically human nature to have such complicated feelings and abilities) they eliminate you because of course, society wants order, not chaos.

An awesome series! Similar to The Hunger Games in that it's a futuristic look at the world and is teen-centered. However, it's a totally different future, and just as captivating. Not quite as thrilled with the third book as the first two, but still well worth reading!!!

Young adult writers have been producing some wonderful books, starting with JK Rowling and her Harry Potter books which brought young adult fiction and, in fact, fiction for older children into the present age. There have always been some great writers whose books were appropriate to and appealed to tween and teen readers and which were also meaty enough to satisfy adult readers. There have been a number of series with volumes of unrelated stories that used the same characters such as The Bobbse ...more

This is a really amazing book! I got mine from big bad wolf and I never regretted it! Tris is just amazing but the third book just really made me cry. I have seen the divergent and insurgent movies. I must say I like the book more than the movie. This is really amazing!

This trilogy is just about fine. I have many issues with it but the major one is that I didn't find any of the main characters
that appealing. Initially Tris and especially Four seemed interesting but as the story progressed I just couldn't love them anymore. I personally liked many side characters better, like Uriah or Lynn. Because I couldn't like the main characters, I couldn't enjoy the story that much.
I'm not saying this trilogy doesn't pique your interest, it does, but not that much.

My new and improved review of the Divergent Series:

Warning: Contains some spoilers.

The Divergent series is okay, but as far as dystopian fiction goes, the Hunger Games Trilogy is better.

I have to say this though, when Tris died, I was crying buckets.

And Dauntless is AWESOME, but if the factions had really existed, I just know that I would probably be far better suited and have a much greater chance for success in Amity.

God I just love Four. Well partly because the actor who plays this characte

I normally cannot be bothered to use up my few precious minutes to write a review, but in this case I just have to do it.

I read Divergent shortly after it first came out, and had already been reading quite a few YA books, dystopian in particular (NOT because of The Hunger Games, but because of The Giver, which I had to read for a college class before THG was becoming the hit it became. I don't understand why the world seems to think that THG started the dystopian-style novels - oh yes, ignoranc

Being that this is a trilogy, I shall break it down by book [First Two are reviews that I already made on Goodreads]:

Divergent (4 stars):

Surprisingly good read. Not to mention very quick read as well. I had no problem breezing through those 480 pages.

Insurgent (4 Stars):

Wow. Quite the ending. certainly would have killed me knowing I would have to wait for the 3rd book if I read this one when it was released.

Maybe it might be me but my issue with these dystopian stories with a female lead is that

The whole series is simply OK. The main idea of city divided into fractions is really good but the further the story goes, the worse it gets... What I was really sick about was, obviously, the relationship of Tris and Tobias - Jesus Christ, how many times they can rich peaks of excitation mountains just because one of them touched the other one or looked at them? How many times can the author emphasize the fact, that their fingers interlace? Finally, how many times are they going to act like for ...more

First two were great last one total let down.

I started reading this series and couldn't out it down. then I reached the last book....ugh! What was Veronica Roth thinking?
Divergent was a powerful story with a unique concept and characters that captures my imagination and heart. Tris and Four managed to make me feel like it was them against the world. I was expecting Allegiant to take the story to the next level. what I got was a user's Manuel for how not to end a series. it's not so much that T

Interesting concept and really interesting commentary on society and humanity....

But then you end up chasing these teens across a landscape and an uprising that is difficult to follow with a bunch of skirmishes and narrow escapes, only to find them completely naive about what is actually happening to them and the world around them and find out they are just a big science experiment and there are big politics and even MORE political sides to choose.... And the it just kind of ends with a whimper.

This is a review for "Allegiant" only!!! Do not read on if you haven't finished the series yet!!!

The first two books were absolutely fantastic in my opinion. I got absorbed by the story so fast and couldn't put them down. Unfortunately it was quite different with "Allegiant". It just felt like nothing ever happened although there was a big revelation or fight almost every 30 pages. It wasn't before the last 100 pages until I felt like there was actually something going on though.

So many feels. So, in this review I will just say: I was impressed with how Roth tied up all the loose ends I was looking to see tied up, the overall message of the series was far more optimistic than I would have guessed based on the first book, I think the right thing happened for the main characters and was done in the best possible way. The series is far more complex and layered than I was guessing as I started in with it. The writing is really good too.

I read the first two books a while ago and was excited to finally read the third one. I re-read the first two and enjoyed them both again...the third book however wasn't nearly as engaging as the first two. The constant switching back and forth between the character points of view was often confusing and was very inconsistent with the other two books which were exclusively seen from the protagonists point of view. The story was still ok and I felt like the author wrapped it up nicely but I just ...more
