Allegaint Ending Question - may have SPOILERS

Post by Kaypea99 » 16 Aug 2016, 11:22

Did you cry at the ending? I cried for about an hour! I was so upset! I couldn't understand how Veronica Roth could do that. However in a way that was a really good ending. If it had ended happily I think it would have been too much like Hunger Games.

I didn't cry but I was really sad at the ending. I was even a little angry but then after a while, when I calmed down, I understood why the author decided to end things that way and I actually think that was the best way for it to end.
I loved the character development in this book, almost all the characters grow up to be awesome and strong. I think Tris' death just solidifies Four's character development, throughout the novel it seemed like he was depending on her and now he has to learn to live for himself and not someone else.

That's a really good way of looking at it. It does solidify his development. I wasn't really either sad or angry by it because it absolutely fits with her character and I think it wouldn't have felt authentic if it'd ended any other way.

Yep, I angry cried at the end. I understand why Roth wrote the ending that way, and I thought it was a great ending. Unfortunately I wouldn't re-read the series knowing what ultimately happens in the end.. I'm all for a tragic ending, but having my heroine die on me just makes re-reading her story pointless to me.
