Peter proved that he is still the same coward he has always been and yet somehow he gets exactly what he wants. Caleb, too, proved a coward. As for Natalie Prior, I thought her backstory was interesting.
There was a rash of seemingly senseless deaths in this book. First, Edward dies. To show that the factionless show as little regard for human life as the Erudite did? The same thing with Tori, who died, it seems, simply to provide the moment in which we find out how wrong she was and that her brother now has to deal with her death?
This problem ties back to the world-building problem and the need for another book. We are introduced to so many new characters. The people from the Fringe? We barely learn anything besides their names. Then we get to Nita, who plays a major role and then just seems to disappear. Matthew has a nice little speech about the Terrible thing that genetic prejudice caused to happen, but who is also basically a clone of Cara. And David, who is exactly, exactly like Jeanine.
Having so many new people cut out our chance to see the people that mattered. Tris Tris came a long way in Insurgent and she learned a lot of things. I thought, overall, she was doing well and continuing that trend until the end, which ruined everything. Those mistakes made Tris human. But in Allegiant?
She is smart and strong and skilled and canny and selfless to a ridiculous extent. And he kind of is. Fundamentally, we had to learn everything new through both characters because obviously they reacted differently to everything. This really slowed down the pacing and bogged this book down in repetitive backstory. His sections of the book were indistinguishable in both tone and voice. Though Tris and Four complimented each other so well in the first two books - made an excellent team of equals - they are also very different personality types.
Sure, they have similar characteristics - the same kinds of things make them tick - but they go about things in a very different way.
I didn't find Four likable in this book. I got flashes of the Four I loved, but he was so mired down in all of his weaknesses that reading his portions of the book was really hard. He is the one that was so mad at Tris in the last book for lying, and he is the one that told her at that he should trust her and not hide things from her.
But, what happens? He has Major Issues. However, I knew that about him already. We already watched this struggle with the need to do something to make the world better and also the need to protect Tris and be a good man in the face of incredibly difficult choices.
We spent a book watching him deal with his feelings for his mother and father, even if we never watched him deal with those things from this point of view. It was wrenching, but it made him grow. This Four is broken. He has lost all of the defining elements that made him Four. He is weak and indecisive and insecure and, most surprisingly of all, irrational. Here, his decision makes no sense. He barely knows Nita.
Why is he not working with Cara and Christina and Tris? Why is he not asking that they be involved?
It made no sense to me, even in context of losing his identity. And then, his actions and his part in this plan are ignored? There are no consequences aside from the fact that Uriah is unconscious and ultimately dies. That entire plot point just seemed pointless.
Tris is going to be plenty mad about Four being so stupid already; Four is going to feel plenty guilty about acting like a completely naive hayseed without Uriah having to eat it. Then the issue became about Uriah instead of why on earth he made this ridiculous decision and what he was feeling.
After this incredibly boneheaded and uncharacteristic decision? I did not understand his motivations. I did not understand the personality he suddenly exhibited.
It felt like he was simply moving forward the plot instead of being Four. Plus, he spends all of Allegiant being broken down and we never really see him built back up. The Plot This plot was repetitive.
In Insurgent, we have to overthrow the tyranny of Jeanine Mathews. In Allegiant, we have to overthrow the tyranny of Jeanine Mathews 2. It is the same struggle. Of course, on one level that makes sense. Tris is chasing this problem up the chain.
I did appreciate that aspect. The pacing was an issue. It was slowed considerably by the excessive amount of info dumping and also the dual points of view. It also felt formulaic. And yet, even with the repetition and the predictability and the deus ex machina moments, this plot was a confused mess and most of it was completely unnecessary to where we went.
