“I suppose a fire that burns that bright is not meant to last.”

Summary

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 meaningliess. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend to complexities of human nature – and of herself – while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.

Told from a riveting dual perspective, ALLEGIANT, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the DIVERGENT series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in DIVERGENT and INSURGENT.

My Experiences

I Cried. Sad. Sad.Sad.Sad. With tears streaming down my eyes, I got up and wrote a draft blog post. Here’s what I wrote:

Tris. Tobias. Caleb. Christina. Gone. What to do?

If you haven’t read the book you’re obviously confused. JUST GO READ THE BOOK!

If you have read the book, you know what I’m talking about. I have re- read many books in my life. But this is definitely not one I will be re- reading anytime soon. Would love to hear what you think of the book in the comments. Share.

One more thing: There’s this post on Veronica Roth’s blog, where she says that she would have preferred it if Harry had died in the last HP book, because it would have been “by far the most powerful moment of the entire series. And beyond that, an incredible act of heroism.” 

Quotes

“I fell in love with him. But I don’t just stay with him by default as if there’s no one else available to me. I stay with him because I choose to, every day that I wake up, every day that we fight or lie to each other or disappoint each other. I choose him over and over again, and he chooses me.”


“There are so many ways to be brave in this world. Sometimes bravery involves laying down your life for something bigger than yourself, or for someone else. Sometimes it involves giving up everything you have ever known, or everyone you have ever loved, for the sake of something greater.

But sometimes it doesn’t.

Sometimes it is nothing more than gritting your teeth through pain, and the work of every day, the slow walk toward a better life.

That is the sort of bravery I must have now.”


“I wonder if fears ever really go away, or if they just lose their power over us.”


“She taught me all about real sacrifice. That it should be done from love… That it should be done from necessity, not without exhausting all other options. That it should be done for people who need your strength because they don’t have enough of their own.”


“When her body first hit the net, all I registered was a gray blur. I pulled her across it and her hand was small, but warm, and then she stood before me, short and thin and plain and in all ways unremarkable- except that she had jumped first. The stiff had jumped first.
Even I didn’t jump first.
Her eyes were so stern, so insistent.
Beautiful.”


“I’ll say it one last time: Be brave.”


“You’re not very nice,” I say, grinning.
“You’re one to talk.”
“Hey, I could be nice if I tried.”
“Hmm.” He taps his chin. “Say something nice, then.”
“You’re very good-looking.”
He smiles, his teeth a flash in this dark. “I like this ‘nice’ thing.”

  1. I enjoy reading personal blogs, Mom blog sites, etc. What is the best method to discover these kinds of blogs online? The most effective method I have is just adhering to faves individuals have – going to one bloggers “favorites” after that the next blog writers faves, etc … I have actually tried Google Blogsearch however all that gives me is old newspaper article, and so on. Absolutely nothing individual at all … Just how do you look for individual blogs?.

  2. Where students and I can post answers for others students.. Somewhere people can get answers for their quizes and tests.. No sarcastic answers or anything.. If enough people say yes, then I will definetely start one and send those people the link to the blog..

  3. In Blogger’s new Template Designer there is no template which contains fluid width in for the text body. Does anybody know how to change to fluid width in the new templates? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated..

  4. I noticed that WordPress charges a fee for you to make changes to your blog and blogspot doesn’t..But does wordpress have some other advantage over google’s blogspot that I’m missing?.

  5. Is there free software or online database to keep track of scheduled blog posts? I would also like it to keep a record of past and future posts. I am trying to avoid creating a spreadsheet in Excel..

  6. Is there NON-Computer Science MS courses available in USA universities for a student with computer background?

  7. Almost three years ago, my old computer had many bad viruses and bad pop-ups. I have some files left on that computer and I did not see them for almost three years ago. I wonder I will like to see my old files again that I can connect to my new computer to old computer. That is problem that I am afraid which bad viruses will come to my new one from old one. Please let me know how I can get my old files move from my old computer to my new computer without bring bad viruses to my new one?.

  8. We want to start our own blog page together on blogspot, but I just thought about us having our own separate google accounts. How can we start a blog page together where it’ll be easier for both of us to log on besides just using one person’s google account?.

  9. I just want to mention I am just beginner to blogs and actually liked you’re website. Most likely I’m want to bookmark your website . You certainly come with really good stories. Bless you for sharing your blog site.
