Allegiant - Veronica Roth I'm a little unsure of what to think of Allegiant. The ending left me reeling and made it easy to overlook the book's flaws.

1. The switching povs- yeah that was necessary but I had a tough time differentiating between Tris' and Tobias' perspectives.
2. Too much explaining, too little action. Again that probably was necessary, but the explaining part didn't seem very well executed. Convoluted explanation? Yes. Confused and bothered reader? Yes.
3. It seemed a little unrealistic, how all that massive conflict was resolved. But I guess it works if you believe in Harry Potter and big generous values and the greater good. (I do)
4. And this might just be me, but Veronica Roth kind of overdid it with the foreshadowing??? I already guessed that Tris was done for after the conversation with Christina (she said she would never leave) and the cloud of happiness that followed Tris and Tobias after the happy sex. However, I didn't actually believe it would happen and boy did I cry when it did

Wow, I have never cried this hard for a YA book before. (Except for [b:Clockwork Princess|18335634|Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices, #3)|Cassandra Clare|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1376663659s/18335634.jpg|6309710] but that felt different) This book messed me up, but rightly so. I don't think it's as stunning as Divergent or as chilling as Insurgent, but it's a fitting ending to an amazing story.
I'm really going to miss this series.

Now may we have Tris back? Please?
