I love this series! But the ending is so sad! Since I am always confused about which book comes next and stuff here's a guide: #1 Divergent #2 Insurgent #3 Allegiant. And Four is Tobias's point of view and takes place in the past but it also overlaps a few chapters into Divergent (it contains spoilers too)

I'm going to beat a dead horse here and say again that Roth's newer fiction beats this series to bits. If you haven't started this series, save your time and skip directly to Carve the Mark. If, however, you've read the previous two in this trilogy you probably want to finish it and nothing I can say will change your mind. So here's my .02: this series started with a Hunger Games rip-off that Roth did not think through. She tried to fix it up in the next book, and finally here, she's trying to bring it all home and get off that train that never stops.

I don't think the character actions always make the most sense, but nothing about the world that Roth set up here was thought through that well to begin with. So go into this book looking for the big ideas. Where does bias come from and how can it be dealt with? Is free will more important than peace? What makes someone human or subhuman? How do you move forward from chaos? Do you choose family or an ideal? Roth's characters all have different answers to these questions and she doesn't give us an easy out.

Putting aside the plot holes, Roth does a terrific job of building suspense. Keep the tissue box close at hand.

First time I cried reading a book. Call it unmanly, but it's true. A powerful conclusion to my favorite trilogy, this book twists and turns, dishes up intriguing life commentary, and shows the redemption of its main character as she discovers the meaning of life. And no, it's not a bunch of Englishmen in drag doing musical numbers. :)

I love this book so much. The ending is a little sad, and just a heads up, the chapters are in POVs of Tris and Tobias. To me, that's a lot like giving out spoilers, but oh well. It's really surprising and we can finally hear things from Tobias's POV too. Good luck in hoping you don't cry at the ending!

PS, there's a short epilogue book for this called We Can Be Mended....its also a little sad...

Although Allegiant provides a fun and satisfying end to the trilogy, I found it to be the weakest of the series. The scope of the book grows too quickly in a way that I think adding at least one more book to the series would have helped smooth the transition. Still, it's a must read for anyone who enjoyed the first two.

I recommend this though the ending is "bad" in a way... I loved this series and also recommend you to go on and read Carve The Mark, which is Veronica Roths next book which seems to also have great reviews... I hope you enjoy!

Allegiant is the third and final novel in the Divergent trilogy written by Veronica Roth. Violence and the struggle for power have completely destroyed Tris Prior’s society. Therefore, when given the opportunity to adventure past all the barriers in her world, she takes it. Tris is hoping it will lead her into a new life. Along with Tobias, Tris learns that the world outside is even more complicated than the world inside. Secrets, discoveries, and truths will all change what Tris is going to fight for. This novel is definitely a mature read and not suitable for a younger audience. The book is also harder to understand than regular teen novels because each chapter switches perspectives between Tris and Tobias. Just like the other two novels in the series, the themes in Allegiant are very dark. The story is extremely engaging and captivates the readers attention. This is the type of novel that is very hard to put down. If you enjoyed reading Divergent and Insurgent, I would highly recommend you read the final novel in the trilogy, Allegiant. Overall, if I had to rate this novel I would rate it five out of five stars.
- @SapphireReads of The Hamilton Public Library's Teen Review Board

Allegiant is the final book in the Divergent trilogy, and wraps up the events that occurred in the previous book. This is the slowest book in the trilogy, in my opinion, but the build up to the end is unexpected, and definitely leaves an impact on the reader. This book showcases a wide range of emotion from the characters, and is a rollercoaster to read about. The only thing that I'd criticize is the changes of point of view. POV changes can get confusing, and is something that isn't my cup of tea personally. This book was a good conclusion to the series, and overall, the trilogy was entertaining to read and experience. 
- @loona of the Teen Review Board of the Hamilton Public Library

Allegiant is the last book of the Divergent series, ending all loose ends in Tris' life as well as the systematic restrictions of the faction system. The series itself had always been a favourite of mine, and it didn't disappoint. Allegiant was the most heart wrenching out of all three books (also the Four spinoffs, if included). While the book didn't come with its fair share of flaws, the overall writing and characters made me overlook it all. Throughout the book, you keep questioning the character's hard decisions as morally balanced, constantly putting yourself in their position to see what you would do. In my opinion, if a book can get you thinking and questioning, it's a good book. This is definitely a series you'll want to look into.

I loved this book it was a great ending to the divergent series. It kept me hooked the entire time. I'm glad the Veronica Roth decided to do both tris's and Tobias's views. ( Happy Evelyn chose son over power🙃 ) Great book.

This was a very exciting book. It had tons of twists and bends to the story, so you can never predict what is going to happen. I don't think anybody would not get teary-eyed after reading this. There are many descriptive parts of the story and also sad parts. Although this is a good book, it was hard tracking who's who. Adding a new person's view is a good idea, but it was confusing sometimes because I sometimes couldn't tell between Tris and Tobias. Overall, this is a good and emotional book.

Tris finds herself in a world outside of her old one, which turns out to be an experiment and finds herself in a whirlwind romance with Tobias and learning about this new place, the fringe and the purity war. Then it's discovered that long ago the government messed with genes and some are known as GP (geneticaly pure, no messed up genes) or GD (geneticaly damaged, messed up genes) and GD's are looked down upon. The Divergent are GP's and, after an examination, Tobias and Tris discover Tris is GP and Tobias is not. Also Marcus is sentanced to go outside, where Tobias finally escaped him. Then a girl named Nita draws in Tobias to a revolution, one Tris dosen't trust. Tobias continues to help and participates in a explosion that puts Uriah into a coma he'll never wake up from. They almost break up but get back together and lead a real rebellion, one that Tris sacrifices her life for for the greater good. Overcome with grief, Tobias nearly erases all his memories, stopped by Christina, a close friend of Tris. They later become good friends themselves. You will feel the love for the couple as they discover the other is a part of themselves and will be teared apart like Tobias when Tris is gone. An amazing ending to an incredible series.

In this book, Tris Prior and her boyfriend, Tobias Eaton (Four) travel outside of Chicago to the behind the fence. Here they will learn the meaning of the factions, and the experiment that revolves around it. In the compound Tris and Four learn what exactly what it means to be Divergent.
