I must not let my emotions get the best of me while writing this review. As a matter of fact, I can’t accurately review this series without ruining the ending for those who haven’t read it yet. Instead, I’ll keep it vague.
I am officially in love with Veronica Roth. I fell in love with her beautiful and quotable writing, her distinct and unforgettable character personalities, and the all-too-familiar storyline revolving around government propaganda.
I would definitely compare this series to The Hunger Games, but with even more violence and a bit more realism. I hope that the movie version doesn’t taint viewer’s vision of the book like THG has. I have seriously high expectations after completing this phenomenal series. The world that these characters live in is so believable that it becomes scary. I can only pray that our society never hits those lows.
Tris is basically everything that you’ll ever want in a female lead – feisty, brave and a little insecure. Tobias is the strong but conflicted love interest that stares right into the female soul. Their beautiful connection in such ugly surroundings is so incredible but, more importantly, not cliché!
I’ll leave you with this … if the third book doesn’t make you cry like a newborn, you might just be soulless. I am happy and distraught and captivated and mind-blown. This is easily one of the best series I’ve ever had the pleasure of FLYING through. I highly recommend it, bookworms!
