ALLEGIANT by VERONICA ROTH
Just finished reading Allegiant a while ago.
I think it had one of the best endings in Dystopian fics because
it was subtle and it didn’t rely much on destruction but more
so on the image of sacrifice and the option that wars can be won
by peace and compromise.
I guess I expected Tris to choose to go the the room for Caleb.
but honestly, I didn’t think it was necessary for her to die.
But then again, thinking of how Roth used that death to form
a great grief-filled ending and that justified it. I just wish that Tris’
death was a bit more dramatic. But then again, that’s not
really what happens in real life right? It takes you under and
Allegiant showed so much on choice, love and identity. Choice
because we do choose our own paths in life. How we die, live or
make something out of our world. Love because Allegiant showed
that it is stronger than power. It gave us an idea how it makes
us stronger than who we are. It might break us, but it mends us
as well. and Identity, because we don’t like who we become sometimes.
and wanting to change that is a brave choice.
Allegiant is more than just a dystopian fiction novel.
It’s a story of Equality. That everyone in this world, no matter
how damaged can be whole. It’s about Acceptance. That life is
an endless battle of the truth versus our own idea of what’s right
God.. reading the chapters after Tris died, that just really
punched me in the gut. I bawled like a fucking baby.
Great ending Roth. Well played..
It’s not really a happy ending..
but it is where it matters.
