Audible Editor Reviews

Editors Select, October 2013 - Speculative fiction has emerged as the most popular subgenre of YA literature in the last decade or so, helping to patently defeat the dire predictions that kids these days just wouldn't care about books. Veronica Roth's Divergent trilogy has become an almost iconic addition to this cannon. Insurgent, Book Two in the series, ended with an M. Night Shyamalan-worthy twist that has kept me and the other fans here at Audible biting our nails - making the arrival of Allegiant all the more exciting. Luckily, Emma Galvin, probably the best YA voice talent going today, returns to narrate along with a surprise male co-narrator chosen by a fan-vote. I hate to state the obvious but if you were sucked in by The Hunger Games series (and come on you know you were) then you need to check out Divergent. And to top things off, it's about to be a blockbuster movie. —Emily, Audible Editor

Where was she going with this???

Would you try another book from Veronica Roth and/or Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford ?

I am hard pressed to say no, yet this third book was ALL over the place and the plot is downright hypocritical and ridiculous.


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Most interesting: The idea of genetic damage was intriguing, yet the way it was written about was overkill. Least interesting: the story itself, with poor character development and little sense.


What does Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Well narrated with good emotion. Easy to understand.


Was Allegiant worth the listening time?

I am not sure... this story picked up from two great books and just went downhill. Without giving away much, I did not expect a fairy tale, yet what does happen is downright hypocritical and foolish. The plot is ridiculous and overdone, as if one did not know what to do with this story. Terrible end to a trilogy.


Any additional comments?

Be aware that this book will bring sadness and to many, disappointment. I am not sure if the author knew what to do with the third book as the plot is all over the place and more annoying than interesting. The last two hours of the book are gut-renchingly unexpected and leave me feeling empty with more questions than answers at the end of the trilogy. I am really disappointed with the third book... this trilogy went out with a flat tire!

What a let down!

What would have made Allegiant better?

If it were ANYTHING like the previous two!


Would you ever listen to anything by Veronica Roth again?

Probably not.


Have you listened to any of Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Love Emma Galvin - I have listen to other performances and love her.
Aaron Stanford did an ok job, didnt like his female voice but I went with it.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Allegiant?

I think I have to agree with most of the other reviews - I would totally change "the big event" and the last several chapters.


Any additional comments?

I absolutely loved the first two books! I pre ordered this one and was counting the days! But I truly would of been fine with waiting another year if that would of changed how this book came out. What a let down. Leaves you feeling like you wasted your time investing in the beloved characters and all of what happened in the first two books.
This is a seperate book and doesnt even belong with the trilogy except it has the same characters. I agree that stopping after two and making up your own ending is much much better than listening to this book.
