One Choice Will Define You

So I have finished reading the final installment of Veronica Roth’s Divergent series.  And I am taking this moment to give me thoughts.  I am not going to give anything away, or at least I will try not to, but I will give my honest opinion.

index[1] Allegiant was surprising.  Surprising in the fact that though I was able to see where the author was taking our main characters, I was still surprised by the outcome.  It was a well written story (not like some series I have read or should I say tried to read), but it was one that forced me to go back and reread some parts to make sure I read it right.  I understand why the author did what she did, but it doesn’t mean that I am by any means thrilled.  All in all though Ms. Roth developed a cast of characters that faced down their demons and emerged wiser and stronger.  I commend her on creating a world that both teens and adults were able to get lost in.

 

So now, with that being said, here are some other books I am looking forward to reading some have come out, others will be out soon.

Not the best time to read about the world losing power and suffering through nothing being able to get food, water, or communicate with the outside world. Especially since that it what I was experiencing personally.
