Review of 'Allegiant' on 'Goodreads'

The conclusion of the Divergent trilogy, but unfortunately each consecutive book seems to make less sense. Characters continue to do blatantly stupid things. The Purity Wars and origin of the faction system are explained, and a new conflict is introduced between the genetically pure and impure, which are all potentially interesting plot points, but there are many baffling questions left unanswered about the whole situation. The decisions Tris & co make to resolve the new conflict are poorly thought out and illogical. Several characters just completely change personalities for no clear reason. Tris has apparently near-magical abilities for no good reason. Four turns into a big baby. And the alternating viewpoint between Tris and Four is just kind of confusing. Ending felt forced and rushed. Overall a disappointing finale to the trilogy.

Whole trilogy
The Divergent trilogy starts in a dystopic Chicago where people are divided into 5 factions that represent their character. Around their 16th birthday, the teenagers need to choose their faction. To help them choosing, they take a test that places them in one or the other factions: tehy can stay in their family faction or be transferred in another that would match them better. Tris' results are rare and somewhat inconclusive: the test puts her in three factions at a time. Tris chooses to be transfered from Abnegation to Dautless. The first book describe her initiation in this faction (which is not easy). The following books tell about the society's evolution, including, in the third book, why and how the society was formed.. A pretty nice trilogy overall, I may go watch the movies.

Como nos tiene acostumbrados la autora, esta última entrega de la trilogía Divergente comienza donde terminó la anterior. Jeanine ha sido no solo derrocada, sino asesinada, y los Sin Facción toman el poder de la ciudad. En esta situación tan desfavorable para Tris y Tobías, un grupo inconformes autoapodados "Los Leales" les dará la oportunidad de conocer lo que hay más allá de las vallas de la ciudad.
Esta última novela, he de decir, que no me ha dejado el mismo sabor de boca que las dos anteriores. La autora parece haber alargado su idea hasta puntos inalcanzables y en muchos momentos se vuelve tediosa. Más que un pasatiempos, se convierte en una continua lucha contra las letras que parecen no estar contando nada nuevo página tras página y, aunque es cierto que cada una de las preguntas que pudieran plantearse en las dos anteriores queda respondida en esta, no …

As with the previous two books in this series I finished this one quickly. I had read spoilers about the book and was quite apprehensive how bad it might turn out. I am surprised now that I was fine with what the people complained about. I think it fits with the story and characters and avoids some "happy-ever-after" pitfalls that I tend to abhor. This wasn't the best of the three books but the trilogy overall was made better by it and I think I should upgrade my initial rating of the first book ;)
