    My Thoughts:

    Finally, after… 5 months, I finished it. Don’t worry, it wasn’t like the story is boring or something. I was just not in the mood to read anything.

    Allegiant told the readers about the life in the Bureau, the creator community outside the wall. They stalked the people in Chicago, the factions city for centuries.  They created the factions and put people in it.  They know what happened inside the city. You will find some shocking facts about This’s mother while you read it, too.

    I was confused by the people in the Bureau while read it. Some who called as the enemy weren’t the actual enemy. Some who acting kind actually weren’t that kind.

    Besides that, I thought this is the first book I read that the main character were killed. I knew about it before I reach the end of Allegiant. My friends told me the ending is so tragic. Tris and Tobias’s ending is tragic.

    When i heard about what they say, I had some asumptions in my head. Tris dead or Tobias dead or Tobias kill Tris under a simulation. When I finally reached the chapter, it wasn’t as bad as i thought but still, it was tragic. It was really sad to read the next chapter, to read Tobias’s mind, to read Tobias’s feelings. What hurt the most was after Tobias had been told about Tris. He coulnd’t say anything.

    “All I’m doing is standing still”

    It hurts that it made you couldn’t feel anything. I admit it I was a little bit disappointed by the ending. But sometimes without a sad ending, the story wouldn’t be… right. I don’t know how to describe, the story just wouldn’t be ‘it’.

    Veronica surely knows how to create such meaningful words. I found a lot in this book, but this one caught me. It told me how vulnerable someone is, but he is strong inside and the other way.

    “There are so many ways to be brave in this world. Sometimes bravery involves laying down your life for something bigger than yourself, or for someone else. Sometimes it involves giving up everything you have ever known, or everyone you have ever loved, for the sake of something greater.
    But sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes it is nothing more than gritting your teeth through pain, and the work of every day, the slow walk toward a better life.

    That is the sort of bravery I must have now.”
