SPOILERS! Do not continue reading if you haven’t read this book or don’t want the surprise ruined.

I finally finished Allegiant, the third book in the Divergent series and I am quite pleased with how it ended. Many dislike the ending, but I think it’s refreshing to have it take another course than the usual books of that sort. The story is quite interesting, in comparison to book two, which was dragging a bit. The protagonists leave the seculded city to discover life outside its boundries and find, that they lived in a government experiment that tries to grow genetic pure people out of the citizens of the city. The inhabitants of “Chicago” have been watched and controlled all of their lives. Tris and Tobias, along with some of their friends learn about the purity war, that launched many experiments like theirs and how big the rest of the world actually is.

In the compound that controls Chicago, they find out that Divergents are actually genetically pure people that supress the genetically damaged people. Tris and Tobias engage in a rebellion against the Divergents, that want to wipe the memories of all Chicago ciry members in order to start the experiment again.

The book ends with Tris giving her life as she saves the operation and Tobias and her friends surviving an being left behind. The last pages of the novel deal with Tobias grieving over her death and the restoration of the society in Chicago. I liked the ending, because Tris’ character was written so that she would always take the risk, always making it through it with luck. It can’t always be that way. She was written in a way that she got out of tense situations mostly unharmed and Tobias being mad at her for her recklessness. Her giving her life for her brother and for the mission was a good ending, which kind of redeemed her annoying and immature character for me.

Let me know, what you guys think!
