Allegiant by Veronica Roth
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Overall, I really enjoyed the book and the series, but I had two issues with ALLEGIANT.
First, I had a really hard time getting into this book because it's written in present tense. I did not lower my rating of the book for this since it's my issue, and Roth did a GREAT job of writing in present tense. I still struggled reading it, because I was hyper-aware of the grammar rather than the story.
Second, I did not enjoy the two points of view. I constantly had to flip back to the beginning of the chapter to see if it was his or her perspective. And I felt like it really weakened Four's character.
I appreciated Roth's gutsy ending. Sometimes in the young adult genre, authors stick to a certain code of rules. So kudos to Roth for stepping outside the box a bit. I found myself completely satisfied with the ending.
I look forward to reading more from Roth in the future.
