One choice will define you.
What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?
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 meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.
Oh my god it's over. I don't know what to say guys. This book was so many things. I don't think I was ready to finish this series, but now that it has I'm rejecting it completely. This is going to be super short, because 1. I don't want to have any spoilers and 2. Really, what is there to say?
I didn't really like how this book was told in alternating points of view between Tobias and Tris. I prefer series to stay in the same layout throughout the entire series, and it started to get a bit confusing when it switched to Tobias's poit of view because I wasn't used to it. I felt like it also made the narration a little weaker in general. I didn't feel like the emotions were as intense when I knew what each side was thinking, but at the same time a lot went on in both of their lives and not all of it would have made sense if we hadn't been there to see it with each of the individual characters.
The first quarter of the book was quite intense and kind of shocking, but by the middle I started getting a bit bored. It took me more than a week to read this, which isn't really that typical for me. It wasn't bad, I just needed time to draw it out. I wasn't ready to say goodbye just yet, but then I got to about the last quarter of the book just drew me it, it wasn't exactly the final hurrah I was expecting for series this epic, like it almost wasn't big enough, but at the same time I don't know what else could have been done with it.
That ending guys.... sigh.
