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

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

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

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 over

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!

(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

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

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

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.

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

Für mich war "Die Bestimmung" eine solide Dystopie. Der erste Band hat mir eindeutig am besten gefallen, der zweite war ein wenig langweilig. Ich verstehe warum viele das Ende von Band 3 kritisch sehen oder es ihnen nicht gefällt, aber ich fand es eigentlich ganz gut, da es eben doch etwas unerwartet ist. Allerdings habe ich jetzt erstmal genug von Dystopien...

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.

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

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

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 really enjoyed this series. Although dubbed a "Hunger Games" knock off, the book is similar because of the society divided into factions, however, I think there are many interesting discussions that could form in a group setting. I began reading "Divergent" because my son was reading it in his Grade 9 class as a more current "Lord of the Flies" type of novel. At the end of the novels there are additions that allow you to explore the writing process of the author and topics to discuss. Book Thr ...more

The Divergent series is very compelling. Something keeps you reading. And most people are glad they kept reading. Readers are drawn to dystopian societies and Divergent is just that. Everything about the life of the people in these books is simply fascinating. You admire the main character, Tris, and her choices. You love and hate other characters as the story progresses. Plot twists and loses seem to be around every corner. By the end of the series, you'll certainly have many mixed emotions.

I truly enjoyed reading this series. the characters were true to themselves clear to the end.

The first two books were a swift read. I was a little disappointed that the third book was a slower read, but it was worth making it to the end.

Several people that i know,and some other reviewers, remarked on the despairing ending. I feel it was only fitting for Tris to have such a fate. it wouldn't have matched with her true character otherwise. I will admit that it was very depressing. However, I'm gl

The ending was terrible and don't understand why she had to end it that way. I mean yeah mostly every series with romance and what not is gonna end in happy endings but this ending was terrible. There was no point to it and I will probably never read one of her books again. I mean she might as well should've just killed everyone in the freaking book. But no. Just the ones that mattered. I regret ever getting into this series.
