2.0 out of 5 stars Spoilers, November 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Divergent Series Complete Collection (Kindle Edition)
************************SPOILER ALERT*******************

The first book, amazing! The second book, good way to follow the first one. The last book...... Going from first person POV in the first 2 books, then switching between POVs in the third book muddled the water. To change up POVs like that so you can kill off the main character?! when you do that in a first person POV the readers feel like they're the one that you're killing. You come away from the series feeling dead inside. Not a good way to honor your characters

I agree. I read a lot as do the people I recommended this book to, and it took awhile to figure out why this book was different than others that kill off the main character. You said it exactly. This series was written in the first person, so everything we saw was not ABOUT Tris, readers WERE Tris. Then killed off? Not an ethical thing to do to readers. I wish I could take back all the copies I bought for others (I am especially upset I bought Divergent for our toys for tots drive at work!) and the recommendations I made to book clubs. Heavy sigh. Thanks for posting an honest review - great first book, pretty good second book - third book makes me wish I had never started the series.
