Hi guys as promised this is the book review! :*
Summary/ Short Description:
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.
Let me say one thing about this book, VERONICA ROTH HOW DARE YOU WRITE THAT ENDING! I AM SO DISAPPOINTED AT YOU! WHY MUST YOU DO THIS?! WHY?!?! Like seriously, what ending is that huh?! What you just thought that, oh people like the fourtris feels let me destroy it for you, is it like that huh? Okay. Sorry but I just hate the ending. I hate how she divided it in Tris’s POV and Tobias’s POV. I didn’t like it at all. For me, it didn’t actually work cause sometimes Tobias’s POV is boring or can be mixed up with Tris’s. And all the action that happened in Insurgent was just destroyed when it came to Allegiant. It’s just like the THG trilogy again. Catching Fire was amazing same as Insurgent then she gives us Mockingjay which was a horrible ending for the trilogy same with Allegiant. Yeah I guess they gave us the ending that we didn’t expect but come on can’t it be different? Like a little better? I seriously don’t know what to say more.
Anyway here’s my rating: 3.5 out of 5
Hello guys as said above there will be no book review for today. Sorry. It’s just that my granddad past away last friday, April 4, 2014, and my family and I are currently emotionally unstable. I’m really really sorry that I can’t post anything. I really want to but my emotional capabilities are lacking for now. But I will try to post a book review next Sunday. Sorry and thanks for all the support.
Summary/ Short Description:
One choice can transform you-or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves–and herself–while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love. Tris’s initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable–and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.
Okay guys, this book is my most favorite among the trilogy. Why? This here has all the action. I mean, come on who wouldn’t love the second book with all that’s going on between factions. (I am so trying not to spoil anything.) And that thing about the factionless and Tobias, well that was something. And seeing someone from book 1 who you would think that had been miserable ever since that certain event, but nope he’s totally fine. But my oh so dear love, Uriah, I was like “It’s okay sweetie I’m still here”. Yeah well as if that would happen, I just love Uriah so much okay? Don’t judge. Anyway, that thing about Caleb just got up to my nerves, I totally hated him just because of that and yes, I still have a grudge about that. And so many more. I just love this book so much. Words just can’t explain how Veronica Roth delivered this book to me and how much it pierced my heart. However that ending on this book tho. I was like “I should really continue on and read the next book. It’s going to be in my to-do list.” And I literally wrote in my to-do list. If I can just describe this book in three words it would be: PHENOMENAL, AMAZING, MAGICAL.
And here’s my lovable rating: 5 out of 5
Comment down below on what book you guys want me to review next. :) Thanks for reading!
*Review of the novel was already posted. See the post before this*
Review of the Movie:
Okay. I literally did not expect that much in the movie. I mean, I have gone through tons of breakdowns just because the movie was just horrible but this movie just blew my heart away. It did not disappoint me that much but it still did in many ways which will be discussed after. But the movie was amazing. When you can say that it came close to the book, it did. Props to the script writer and director for that. The effects were amazing, the actors and actresses did their part well and that is just enough for me to give it a thumbs up. For the first adaptation movie for the first book, it was so better than what I have expected it totally gave me the feels every time. Since I’m going to bottle up my rants at the next part my rating will be 4/5 :)
*this part will contain spoilers. If you haven’t watched the movie or read the book please don’t read this part. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED*
Okay okay, the movie was amazing but I just hate some things about it. The first one that bothered me so much was that the Dauntless-born initiates were not properly introduced. Especially Uriah! Uriah is my favorite character in the novel and they didn’t even introduced him properly. How about Lynn and Marlene huh? What about them? They have an important role in the next books and they weren’t introduced to the audience properly. Another was the score boards. The fucking score boards in the novel did not show the rankings of both Dauntless-born and faction transfer initiates. The score boards only showed the faction transfer initiates. It may be a small little detail but it irritated me so much! Another was the part when Peter and his gang stabbed Edward in the eye and after that incident Edward and Molly dropped out of the initiation. I mean this part was important because it showed how much Peter wanted to be top of things and doesn’t want to be at the bottom of anybody. Another was during the capture the flag scene. I don’t mind Tris getting the flag but they should have shown how Christina got the flag to herself to get the attention and how Tris gave her that privilege and didn’t even want to get the flag. Another, WHERE ARE THE OTHER FOURTRIS SCENES?!?! They have left some fourtris scenes out. Another when Tris saw the pile of books in Caleb’s room. This scene in the book showed that Caleb will eventually go to Erudite. Another the Visiting day in the book. Tris and her mom met during Visiting day in the book however in the movie they met somewhere at the Pub secretly. Her mom was also supposed to ask a favor to Tris to go to Caleb to research about the simulation serum. And where is exactly that huh? And when Tris got caught when she gets back by Eric and Four covers her up. Another fourtris scene deleted.
Anyway, that’s all my rant can handle for now. Comment down below what other things I have left out about the movie. Love you guys! Ciao!
It has been a long time ever since I wrote a book review due to the business of school works that was to be passed day after day but since another term has ended I shall give you this review with regards to the movie that just came out. And yes, I have watched the movie and the review of that with comparisons to the book will be posted a little while. So here it is.
Summary/ Short Description:
In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue- Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen year olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is- she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are- and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she has chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she’s kept hidden from everyone because she’s been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves… or it might destroy her.
So this book just blew my mind away. This gave me all the ‘Fourtris’ feels and that’s why I ship them so much!! Their cute little acts on how they show their emotions to each other, just so cute! And while I was reading this I kept on telling my friends to read it too! I just love the dystopian world and the dividing of people into factions. Some people keep on comparing this book to The Hunger Games but let me tell you this, they are two different books with two different stories I think people must stop comparing them I mean just because their both in dystopian worlds and their people are divided into factions/districts, they are different. This book tells you about the life of a girl who goes to live in an another faction and goes through initiation and learns a deep dark secret with regards to what she truly is. This will just certainly blow your mind and my love for this book is just so unexplainable.
My rating 100000 out of 5. Jk. 5 out of 5 :*>
Summary/ Short Description:
After a long journey and a hard battle, the Spook and his apprentice, Tom Ward, have returned home. But the county has been overrun by enemy soldiers. The Spook’s house is in ruins, the boggart protecting it has fled, and the malicious witches imprisoned in the gardens have escaped. Tom, Alice, and the Spook must flee, too, across the ocean to the island of Mona. And it’s on Mona that this small band fighting against the dark will face an old enemy grown terrifyingly powerful. Will they be able to vanquish an evil that crawls beneath the ground itself? And at what cost?
Now one thing for sure, I was so terrified at this book. Like seriously, I usually can read this series during the night but this, I had to read it during the day and watch something funny or fuzzy in order for me to head to bed. And since I read this during the day I only can remember some parts of the book just because it scared the heck out of me. I can’t stay focused on this book just for the fact that it was just horrifying. The first that scared me was that when the Spook’s house was burned down (as said in the short description above). Why did it scare me? Think of the Spook’s library burned down along with all the books. That’s just such a horrifying thing to imagine! That was the start that this book just gave me the creeps. But if you’re into this type of book and/or you have been loving the series so far (like I do) go ahead. Give it a read and will be just as amazing as the others.
4 out of 5 for scaring the heck out of me.
