Allegiant- Veronica Roth
Transcript of Allegiant- Veronica Roth
Tris Prior is thrown in jail for displaying a video that explains the city of Chicago's past and the purpose it is serving and is accused for being a traitor. Meanwhile, Tobias is reconciling with his AWOL mother, trying to earn her trust. Tris's trial passes, and she is found not guilty. After her trial, Tris is met by an anonymous person claiming to be with a rebel group called the Allegiant. This group is planning on escaping from the city and the harsh rule of Tobias's mother, Evelyn. After developing a plan, the group attempt to escape, only to be attacked by Factionless forces. Unfortunately, Tori was killed and others were injured. After crossing over the fence, the Allegiant are met by Amar and Zoe, people working with the Bureau of Genetic Welfare. After arriving at the Bureau, the group is introduced to David, the leader, who explains how their city was an experiment to try to correct genes. Tobias and Tris are tested to see if their genes are pure. Tris's genes are, but Tobias's are not. Upset by the news, Tobias joins a rebellious group lead by Nita to try and eliminate the term "genetically damaged". After setting off a bomb, Uriah is put into a coma and Nita's group has David hostage. Tris rescues David, who quickly arrests Nita and Tobias on account of treason. Tobias is allowed to go free, but Nita is not. After careful strategizing, the Allegiant concocted a plan to unleash memory serum onto the entire compound in order to eliminate the unjust treatment of GD's. The only problem is whoever attempts to unleash the memory serum will inhale death serum, causing them to die. Caleb volunteers to go in order to repay Tris for something that happend in Insurgent (read the book to find out what!). Before they attempt to erase the memories of everyone in the compound, Tobias and Amar lead some of the Allegiant back to Chicago to say goodbye. While in Chicago, Tobias covinces his mother to give up her power. Meanwhile, the Bureau goes into lockdown, initiating the plan earlier than expected. Tris ends up going to spread the memory serum, but is then faced with the death serum. Will she succeed and survive? Read the book to find out!

My favorite part in
was when Tris stood up to the Factionless bullies who were harming an Candor boy who broke the dress code on pages 35 and 36. I liked this part because even though there was massive physical and economical destruction, Tris still decided to do the right thing and make even the smallest difference for the boy. Not many people would like this part, especially due to its general insignificance in relation to the entire story, however. it is the first sign of foreshadowing and it serves as a lesson for everyone.
“’My mother wasn’t a fool,” I say. “She just understood something you didn’t. That it’s not sacrifice if it’s someone else’s life you’re giving away, it’s just evil.”
What I Disliked
I disliked the subplots in the book. Yes, they added more detail to the story, however, they made the book hard to follow at times. If there were fewer plots to follow, then the book would have been more enjoyable.
Allegiant- Veronica Roth
I back up another step and say, “She taught me all about real sacrifice. That it should be done from love, not misplaced disgust for another person’s genetics. That it should be done from necessity, not without exhausting all other options. That is should be done for people who need your strength because they don’t have enough of their own." Tris, page 473
What I Liked
I liked how the book ended. It showed how life does not always have happy endings or end the way we want it to. With some of the books I have read in the past, authors go through outrageous lengths to ensure a perfect happy ending. Although infuriating and sometimes pessimistic,
was very well-written and realistic (in this perspective).
I would recommend this book to just about anyone. It has elements that appeal to every kind of person. It has action, critical analysis, conflict, and an intriguing, convoluted plot that will satisfy everyone. If you are interested in
, then I recommend reading
, then reading the
miniseries if you are interested.
is set to come out in theaters March 18.
are available on DVD as well.
