Obligatory Flash Forward Epilogue: Allegiant Epilogue

July 10, 2015 by


Guess what? We’re finally done with Divergent! Or at least we will be, once we learn what everyone’s doing two and a half years after the story ended, which is the obligatory move for all fiction series since Moses descended from the mountain with the stone tablets inscribed with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. […]

The End of the Book: Allegiant Chapters 55 & 56

July 9, 2015 by


Allegiant Chapter 55: Tobias (Because Tris is Dead) Tobias is, unsurprisingly, still sad about Tris’ death. Those lost in the memory serum haze are gathered into groups and given the truth: that human nature is complex, that all our genes are different, but neither damaged nor pure. They are also given the lie: that their […]

Tris Died: Allegiant Chapters 51-54

July 3, 2015 by


So now we can all speculate wildly over whether the only reason this is the only book in the series to be told from Tris and Tobias’s perspective is because there needed to be a way to tell the denouement after Tris died. Fun fact: I’m actually writing this post in O’Hare! Where most of […]

Tris Dies: Allegiant Chapters 49 & 50

July 2, 2015 by


Can I just leave it at the title of this post? Allegiant Chapter 49: Tris The death serum smells like smoke and spice. What kind of death serum even is this, it sounds like a burnt curry serum. Did a chef design it? Also, I love how ‘spice’ is just the most generic thing I’ve […]

Tobias Talks An Antagonist Into Just Giving Up, Like This Plot Has: Allegiant Chapters 47 and 48

June 26, 2015 by


I know, I know, it’s not Grey. We could all use a break from that. Already. Chapter 47: Tris Over on Tris’s side of the climax, her plan to sneakily take Caleb on his suicide mission to the weapons lab without anyone picking up on what’s going on hits a snag when someone picks up […]

Shocking Twists and Turns (JK): Allegiant Chapters 45 & 46

June 25, 2015 by


On the days we write about Allegiant, our readership just plummets. All you people want is Grey! Allegiant Chapter 45: Tris Caleb is examining serums because when it comes down to it, isn’t this whole series just about serums of one sort or another? Tris reminds us it’s the last day of his life, so I’m going […]

Plans To Change The World Are In Motion Again: Allegiant Chapters 43 and 44

June 19, 2015 by


So did everyone already read Gray? Is everyone terrified for us to start reading it next week? Chapter 43: Tris Tris kicks off the chapter off honestly, at least. The emergency council meeting is more of the same I wonder what that would be like. After the council meeting reconfirming that the plan is still […]

Wait, There’s Sex in This Series?: Allegiant Chapters 41 & 42

June 18, 2015 by


Allegiant Chapter 41: Tris The chapter opens with a really peculiar and nonsensical juxtaposition: I stand next to a mop in a storage room in the basement; I stand in the wake of what I just told everyone, which is that whoever breaks into the Weapons Lab will be going on a suicide mission. The […]

Tobias Solves Everything But Not At All: Allegiant Chapter 40

June 12, 2015 by


Don’t worry. Only 130 pages left. Here are a list of things that are almost as long as how many pages are left of Allegiant, but the entire remainder of Allegiant is actually still longer: The Old Man And The Sea The Time Machine A Christmas Carol Of Mice And Men Not that this necessarily […]

Why? Why is This Book Not Over Yet? Allegiant Chapter 39:

June 11, 2015 by


Allegiant Chapter 39: Tris We open with Matthew (#NotOurMatthew) clarifying this magical serum that magically targets specific memories. Because the more we talk about it, the more I’m going to buy into it. “No, no, the serum doesn’t erase all of a person’s knowledge,” he says. “Do you think we would design a serum that makes […]
