Comparison

This novel Allegiant and the other novel in the Divergent series Insurgent have some similarities and differences. They are similar because they have most of the main characters in their stories and they both kind of follow the same storyline. Some of the differences between those novels is, that in Allegiant there is a character named David and he isn't in Insurgent. Jeanine Matthews isn't in Allegiant either. I think that the best novel that I read between these two was Allegiant because it has a lot more action and a lot of things change in Allegiant.

Recommendation

The thing that makes Allegiant great is that it is detailed and has a pretty good story line and you can get really wrapped into the characters. Others should read this novel because it is fantastic. In this book the author divided it up into sections with Four and Tris as the narrator's. Which I really liked because, I like to read from not one but other characters perspectives. The ending is a little sad but I liked the way the author ended it because it shows what the character learned and what her parents were trying to teach her.
