I felt like Victoria Ross was all too happy to kill off anybody that she possibly could. I wished that she would have at least let a few more people live, but she just kept killing them off one by one. I really wish that there was a different ending to this series, but that is just my opinion.

Overall I enjoyed the series but I'm not a fan of the ending. I remember going through different stages of grief when I read it. First I was sad and bawling my eyes out, then I got quite angry at the author for putting me through this. In the end I came to understand why Roth ended the series this way, but I still don't like it. I prefer happy endings.

I was heartbroken. I adored Tris. she was brave, honest, forgiving and sacrificing. I would like to quote,
“I suppose a fire that burns that bright is not meant to last.”
― Veronica Roth, Allegiant. :(

My heart goes to Four. “I don’t know how long it takes for me to realize that isn’t going to happen,
that she is gone. But when I do I feel all the strength go out of me, and I fall to my knees beside the table and I think I cry, then, or at least I want to, and everything inside me screams for just one more kiss, one more word, one more glance, one more.”
― Veronica Roth, Allegiant

But the ending justifies the story. It's real. Not everything is a bed of roses in life. Especially when it is controlled by men from outside. :cry:
