REVIEW: ALLEGIANT BY VERONICA ROTH.
It has been awhile since I have bothered to write a review, mainly because I haven’t been bothered to pick up a book and read. Until Today. BIG MISTAKE. I watched Divergent with my brother today and I was suddenly filled to the brim with how much I adored Divergent and Insurgent.
I want it to be known that I knew what was coming in Allegiant and because of this fact I have boycotted it with an impressive resilience since it landed on my door step. Until Today. Somehow after watching Divergent my head started playing tricks on me. Saying all sorts of things. Oh it won’t be so bad. It won’t break my heart. I can deal with the impending doom of gut wrenching heart ache and a bucket full of disappointment.
I can tell you now with 100% certainty. I cannot deal with it. My heart is sore, my soul raw with disappointment and a bucket full of anger. Veronica. What. Have. You. Done.
I could have gotten over it if it didn’t feel like the scene had been plopped in there like the author had a Ericka moment and decided hey, killing off Tris seems like a grand idea. Let me tell you. Worst. IDEA. EVER. (I am not even going to bother going into the train wreck of sequence that occurred in this book, but bad doesn’t even describe it. Like, seriously – What happened -)
What happened to the character's? I understand they evolve but honestly I don't feel like the evolved for the better. I am crumbling every second I think about this book. WHY.
I feel like Veronica has yanked out my heart, thrown it around and dropped it, proceeding to then jump on it with an exaggerated amount of laughter and amusement.
Why. Did. I. Read. This. Book. I loved the first books, I bought multiple copies like the fan I was, going gaga over the pretty covers and being absorbed into this amazing world.
I could barely contain my excitement when the release of Allegiant was drawing near. And then. The reviews started coming in. And the depression. And the collision of tears, anger, hatred and downright mood swings started showing up on YouTube Video reviews. I was scared. I was distraught that Veronica could do this to us.
I came up with a plan. I was going to ignore that Allegiant existed. My boyfriend read it before me saying it was a bitter sweet ending and he wasn’t upset with the book. He spent months trying to convince me to pick it up. But I am stubborn and I have been a fan from the very first sentence I read of Divergent and I was determined not to be crushed. And now. Look at me. I am crushed.
Again. Why. Did. I read. This. I was so happy to live in a fantasy world where Tris and Four were together in a new world that was building up around them. Not a world where I was forced to see her ashes be laid to rest in a world where everyone suddenly decided to play nice because Four asked his Mommy ever so nicely.
P.S – What happened to the sexy, tough, sure of himself Four?
And what happened to Tris? Did the girl get a personality transplant?
I finish this book wishing that I had never opened the first page and gotten sucked into depression land.
I will admit it took balls for Veronica Roth to kill off Tris, even if it was the plan all along. However. It didn't work for me. Oh it sure as hell didn't. Betrayed. Angry. Tears. Heart Ache. Does the list of Sadness Ever End.
Actually the Veronica's New Song - YOU RUIN ME fits this book perfectly.
