*******I just realized that I never actually posted this review that I wrote weeks ago, probably because it is sadly lacking in content. Nevertheless, I feel you must know how much I absolutely adore Veronica Roth in all her brilliance. Even though she made me cry.
from the back cover
The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered--fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she's known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.
But Tris's new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature--and of herself--while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.
This is by far the best conclusion to a book series that I have ever read--and I do not say that lightly. If you haven't already, go read Divergent and Insurgent so that you can read this masterpiece (and because they're just good books).
Honestly, I've just written and deleted three or four different sentences consecutively, so I'm going to give up on reviewing this book now (the best parts are the surprises, and I really don't want to spoil those for you). Which I hate to do, because I always ignore book reviews that don't give me a reason why the person liked the book so much. In light of this dilemma, if you are interested in more reasons to read this series than just my flailing recommendation, please take a look at my reviews for Divergent and Insurgent.
