From my review:
Allegiant explores what true sacrifice really means. Sacrifice isn’t giving away other people’s lives for the good of everyone. True sacrifice can only come from within yourself with the desire to truly help others no matter the cost to you. I liked howAllegiant explored the idea of a good or evil sacrifice. I liked the ending, though it did give me a major hangover that I had to discuss with my husband for an hour or two before I could move on. I think the ending was tragic, gutsy, and really tied all the books together and stuck with the theme of the series. Read more….
There were a lot of places in Allegiant that I had already written about in my other Google Diaries, so this one is kind of short because I’m only writing about the things new to Allegiant. But be sure to check out my Divergent Google Diary where I break down the factions and my Insurgent Google Diary that has a few quotes and things.
“Four said he wants to meet you later.”
[Tris] pull[s] up straighter. “Really? When? Where?”
“A little after ten, at Millennium Park. On the lawn.” He smirks. “Don’t get too excited, your head will explode.”
– Veronica Roth, Allegiant p. 17
– Veronica Roth, Allegiant p. 113
“And he’s right to say that every faction loses something when it gains a virtue: the Dauntless, brave but cruel; the Erudite, intelligent but vain; the Amity, peaceful but passive; the Candor, honest but inconsiderate; the Abnegation, selfless but stifling.”
– Veronica Roth, Allegiant p. 123
Do you think the movies will change the ending to Allegiant since it was so controversial and had such negative backlash?
I kind of wonder if they will. They are changing the ending to the movie Gone Girl but I think that was to make it more movie friendly. I think the original ending to Allegiant would actually work really well in a movie, but I kind of wonder if they won’t change it all together or at least tweak it like they did with Breaking Dawn. What are your thoughts? Do you think the negative fan backlash was enough that they might consider changing it? Would you still see the movie/like the movie if they did change it?
