What if a single revelation – like a single choice – changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?
The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered – fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.
But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature – and of herself – while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice and love.
The plot for this book seemed to lose its way a bit. The first book was so strong and well written I expected more from this one. I thought it was just a bit over complicated… I still loved it, but it did just seem to drag out a bit. there were bits that didn’t seem like they needed to be there, or were just there for the effect. I feel like it could really have been condensed down into two books instead of the three that it turned out to be.
It’s written very well, just like the other two books. This book, unlike the others, is written from two perspectives, Tris and Tobias. I loved seeing the other side of Tobias, I thought it really added something to the story. I think most of the characters have a background and are well rounded. They all seem to have reasons for being the way they are, whatever it may be.
The voice of both Tris and Tobias was really good. I found it was really descriptive, and it was great having both of them as they notice such different things. The dialogue in general was really good, sounded like actual people rather than robots, which I hate.
I adore the covers of all three of these books. There are two versions and I’m not sure which is which… But the one’s I’ve put in the reviews are the one’s I love. They’re just so pretty, I love the feathers in this one and the colour is just beautiful.
I enjoyed this book so much, when I say it ate me… I read it in five hours, all in one go. I don’t normally get quite that swallowed up by books, but I had waited for this book for so long… I loved it. I did cry at the end, but it’s worth it. And I think the ending, although sad (I’m not spoiling it, promise) is what would have happened… So even if it’s not what I would have done… It’s amazing.
I have already dragged my friends into this book… And they hate me for it… Because they had exactly the same reaction as me. I cried when I finished this book. It was sad, but truly it’s worth it, they’re all brilliant. The first one is my favourite, I just think its got the best story to it. But yes, I recommend this book, this trilogy highly.
I give this book 8/10 Because although I do love it, it’s not as good as the first one… Which I can’t remember what I scored. But it’s better than this one…
