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.
I am going to take a moment to share with you my giant disappointment.
Let me just set the scene:
I read both Diverent and Insurgent nearly a year ago and have been looking forward to how everything would end. Because this book is so expensive, I decided that I was going to get the most out of it by re-reading the first two books before I read this one. So even though all I want to do is tear into this book and find out what happens, I take my time to try and savor it. And then Roth kicked me in the face.
If this book even contained a story worth telling- and that is a big IF- it would not require any of the back-story that was built in the first 2 books. In fact, it would have been better if it did not have the back-story since all of the character magically developed entirely different personality traits and the world building made fuck all sense.
I have decided that Veronica Roth and Richelle Mead should be BFFs. They would get along wonderfully while they discussed various ways to destroy a series.
Most of the issues I have with this book have been covered in great detail in 90% of the reviews for this book, so I am not even going to waste my time getting into it.
don’t read this book. I would have preferred that she end the series on the cliffhanger from book 2 then to have read this book. you can’t spend 2 books building a world and developing characters and then decide in the final book that the characters will all of the sudden change their entire personality and nothing about the world matters. such a huge let-down.
