"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.

Now I can finally see the movie.

basically, the first two books were good. this wasn't. the whole thing was kind of a let down. HOWEVER. i don't usually cry in books, but i did at the end of this one, ALOT ALOT ALOT, so Kudos to Roth for making this worth my time in the end.

this book just pissed me off.

I hated this book.Tris dies. thank You SPOLIERS

This book was terrible. Anybody that *SPOILER!* kills their main character at the end of a trilogy where readers have devoted their time to, is insane.

Disappointing ending, yet completely predictable. I've accepted it and am a little less excited to see the movie now. Tris has always been a martyr...

I didn't like this one from the beginning and it was pretty boring. The first one was okay but not great and the second one was pretty bad too.

l want to read this book so badly and it looks so interresting

*SPOILER!!**SPOILER!!**SPOILER!!**SPOILER!!**SPOILER!!**SPOILER!!**SPOILER!!**SPOILER!!**SPOILER!!**SPOILER!!* you likely know that Tris dies in "Allegiant"'s final pages — sacrificing herself for the cause. Yep, Veronica went there. It's certainly not a simple decision to kill off one's heroine, not to mention an infrequent act in the world of YA literature. So why did Roth do it? "Well, it's actually been set up that way," Roth explained of the outline for her dystopian series. "At the end of the first book, she almost experiences death. She's in that water tank. She gets saved at the last second by her mother. At the end of the book, she kind of plays with the idea of self-sacrifice by letting Tobias almost kill her. Like, 'I'm going to sacrifice myself for him or whatever,' and that's not quite right, so she lives. In the second book, the same things happens. She goes to her execution in this act of bravado and self-sacrifice, and it's not quite right, so she survives." But the lessons of the first two installments prove pivotal in the third, in which Tris truly comprehends what it means to give up one's life for another. "In the third book, she learns what it actually means to sacrifice herself," Roth continued. "It has to be necessary. It has to be about love. She says all those things. And to me, it felt like it was her finally understanding what her parents were trying to teach her in Abnegation and finally understanding what it means to be an adult and make a grown-up decision because you have to, not because you particularly want to. So, to me, I was proud of her. I was so proud. It was like she finally became a grown-up." Roth said she didn't have many misgivings about killing her main character, and — perhaps surprisingly — neither did her publisher or editor. "I think they knew I would only do it if it worked or if it felt like the only way it could end," she explained. But that doesn't mean she didn't consider alternate endings. "I thought about other options," she said. "But the more I thought about them, the more I felt like they weren't really doing justice to her story. This is a very intense transformation that she undergoes, and to have her just be like, 'OK, well, we saved the day. Let's wander off into the sunset together,' it just didn't feel right. She earned a more powerful ending to her story than that."
