Review: Allegiant (Divergent #3) by Veronica Roth

17383918 Genre: YA Dystopian
Published: October 22, 2013 by Katherine Tegen Books
Series: #3 (Divergent)
Length: 526 pages
Source: Bought

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 meaningliess. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend to complexities of human nature – and of herself – while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.

review

I have mixed feelings for this book, but for the most part I did enjoy reading Allegiant. I’ll start off with what I did not like. I understand why Veronica did the dual point of view with Tris and Tobias and I DO like it, but what I did not like is how they sounded so similar. Even though at the beginning of the chapter it says who’s narrating it, it still gets confusing especially if you decide to stop reading in the middle of the chapter then continue to read it later on. Also I think Allegiant has a much slower pace compared to Divergent and Insurgent maybe because of our questions finally being answered since it’s the finale, but nonetheless I still managed to fly through this book (not as quickly as I did for Divergent & Insurgent though). Also I thought the “big revelation” was a bit anticlimactic..like the explanation made sense, but I thought “oh okay…that’s it?” I was looking for something more, but I’m glad that it did made sense.

Now on to the things I loved. I really loved the character developments especially with Four. I also like the themes presented in this book which are love, sacrifice, friendship, and of course bravery. Believe it or not, I really like what happens in the end. I already know the big bang that happens before going into it because someone spoiled me on Instagram, but I do like it because it makes sense since the trilogy is about being brave and selfless. I actually cried in some parts of the book which I rarely do because I’m not a crier when it comes to reading books, but this one just made me so sad for all the characters. Overall I highly recommend you to read this because it is one of those books that will make you feel all the feels and a book that will leave an impact on you in so many ways.

Review: Breathe (Breathe #1) by Sarah Crossan

Breathe (Breathe, #1) Genre: YA Dystopian
Published: October 2, 2013 by Greenwillow
Series: #1 (Breathe)
Length: 377 pages
Source: bought (at Barnes and Noble)

Inhale. Exhale. Breathe. Breathe. Breathe . . .The world is dead. The survivors live under the protection of Breathe, the corporation that found a way to manufacture oxygen-rich air.

Alina has been stealing for a long time. She’s a little jittery, but not terrified. All she knows is that she’s never been caught before. If she’s careful, it’ll be easy. If she’s careful.

Quinn should be worried about Alina and a bit afraid for himself, too, but even though this is dangerous, it’s also the most interesting thing to happen to him in ages. It isn’t every day that the girl of your dreams asks you to rescue her.

Bea wants to tell him that none of this is fair; they’d planned a trip together, the two of them, and she’d hoped he’d discover her out here, not another girl.

And as they walk into the Outlands with two days’ worth of oxygen in their tanks, everything they believe will be shattered. Will they be able to make it back? Will they want to?

review

While reading this book, I could not think of anything but SADNESS! Come on, you HAVE to pay in order to breathe? You’re basically paying to live! This book was just sad, yet I enjoyed it. In Breathe, we have three protagonists – Alina, Quinn and Bea. It’s written in 1st person point of view and it switches to each of those characters. The book is divided into four parts and as you read, the more interesting it got.

Alina is part of the resistance group which is those who opposes Breathe – the company that manufactures oxygen and you basically pay them to have oxygen a.k.a the bad guys. She is such a kick ass heroine but not my favorite character. There is a love interest in this book but there is also a twist in it which some of you may like or might find annoying and want to slap the guy a.k.a Quinn. This boy, he was an “alright” leading male. I didn’t really feel anything for him. The character that I felt for the most was Bea. She’s the one who changed the most in this novel. At first I didn’t like her but then as the story went on, I was surprised that I was liking her character more than the others.

I really enjoyed reading Breathe. It was such a fresh read and a great concept to write about. It’s not just a story; I think it gives the readers something to think about especially because today hundreds of trees are being cut down. I love how the beginning left me intrigued and the ending was just action packed. The only “ehh” part is I wasn’t really attached to the characters excluding Bea. There were also some inconsistencies, but if I point it out it would be a spoiler. You’ll see. Overall I recommend it to those who wants to read something new and to young adult lovers!
