Review: Allegiant

Allegiant by Veronica Roth
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I really like the story, the characters, the setting, and I finally figured out what was driving me nuts about the book: the narrator of my audiobook. READ THE PAPERBACKS, avoid the audiobooks! I like the inner conflicts of the characters, and that the new boss is the same as the old boss, so to speak. I'm not sure I agree with how they handle it in the end, but it did stop a lot of bloodshed, granted. I'm glad I read the trilogy, but wish I'd made the time to read it on paper.

I couldn't put my finger on it, for two books. Allegiant has two narrators (they brought in a male for the Tobias point of view) and he wasn't a great narrator either, but it gave me contrast. The female narrator of the books doesn't change her voice for other characters. There are times that I can't tell Tris stopped talking and someone else started talking! She doesn't breathe between sentences, often she breathes in…
