My reading was all over the place this month in terms of genre and did not include anything I would categorize as amazing, but I did get a lot read. In addition to these 10, I finished Kenneth Haugk's 'Experiencing Grief' which did not impact me quite as much as the first book . . . . or maybe that's just where I am. Who knows.
How the Light Gets In
The Game's Afoot
A good final part to this trilogy: not as dark as Insurgent although there is still a fair amount of death and tears. As Tris and Tobias leave the city for the Allegiant colony, they discover more divisions amongst the populace which they find the need to fight with tragic consequences.
If you've read the first two books, it would be a shame not to see the trilogy through to its conclusion. On the other hand, if you've not read hte other two, this will all seem a bit mysterious.
I have so many questions.
Why did I torture myself with reading this after seeing so much negative feedback about it? And why did I think that listening to it on audio would be better? (It's not. The only thing worse than skimming through constant scenes of teenage lust is listening to it. Bleh.)
Why is this doomed future world ruled by a bunch of self-righteous teenagers?
Is the moral lesson that it's alright to target an entire community as long as you can make loose parallels between what they are doing and horrific acts of the past? Did I already ask why we're letting teenagers make these decisions?
Why do all the characters sound exactly the same (writing not just narration)?
Why are there chapters switching points of view when the two characters are always together?
Ugh. There is no way that the movie can not improve upon this. At least it will be quicker.
