I’m going to skip this since , if you’re reading this review of a series finale, you’re familiar with the premise. Also, I’m lazy.
My Brief, Random, and Spoilerific Thoughts:
- I eagerly hurried to pick up my copy on release day. Read about 100 pages. Then got bored. So it took me a few weeks to actually finish the book. I felt the pacing was off. The beginning is bam…bam…bam and then they just wait around at the Bureau FOREVER.
- These characters need to think for like 30 seconds before going full force into some crazy plan.
- The genetically modified problem/solution makes no sense to me. I tried to suspend disbelief but it really made no sense. If you are trying to heal the genetically damaged by putting them in the experiments, the existence of other genetically damaged people outside of the city ruins that goal. Right? My solution? Make the genetically damaged infertile. Boom.
- Couldn’t there have been a better nickname than GD?
- I don’t like the title. The Allegiant was such a small part of the book. They spent most of their time at the Bureau.
- I wanted a happily ever after. But I’m okay with the ending. Mostly.
Now, I waited to long to finish and missed most of the responses. So what did you think of Allegiant?
