ABOUT THE YOUNG FOLKS

As a fun and engaging website for young people, The Young Folks’ main focus is to deliver a young approach to film, books, music, television, video games, etc. to those in need of a fresh and relatable perspective. We often see a disconnect between professional critics and young people when it comes to pop culture. Therefore, we want to give the young folks of the world a chance to read and learn about the latest in entertainment in a way that isn’t condescending or diminutive of the young people pop culture. Everything written on The Young Folks are by young people for young people (and, of course, the young at heart)!

Peek of TheYoungFolks.com's Allegiant Review! **CONTAINS SPOILERS**

yagirlmelberne:

***CONTAINS SPOILERS***

I guess I’m a masochist because I read and re-read Tris’ death scene and Tobias’ reaction over and over. In one way, it makes complete sense. Tris, since book 1, has been that selfless girl. Yes, she was “blind with her brokenness” in Insurgent by making reckless attempts at self-sacrifice. But ever since Divergent she was that girl who stood up for Al. She was that girl who would have let Tobias kill her while he was in the simulation. She was that girl who stood up to Marcus on behalf of the love of her life. So, was it out of character for Tris to decide to take Caleb’s place at the end? Certainly not. It follows in line with every other brave thing she’s ever done. In another way, it still totally sucks. She could have gone to the Weapons Lab, gotten a NON-fatal shot and survived. But, no, Veronica decided that it was finally Tris’ time to join her parents. In Allegiant, Tris decided she didn’t want to die anymore and that she welcomed life’s challenges. So, it was a bit of a surprise, for me, that she just gladly went with her mom. That she didn’t fight to get back to the living world. Back to Caleb, her friends and Tobias. I just don’t see why she had to die. It almost changes the whole story for me. To me, the story of Divergent was about a girl who is on this journey to figure out herself and understanding the world, and she always rose to the occasion against difficult obstacles. In Allegiant, Tris rose to the occasion yet again–doing the right thing by taking her brother’s place– but she paid the highest price for it. Her own life. And poor Tobias holding on to her ashes for over two years, and before that, almost willingly erasing his memory because the pain of losing her was too great to bear. AGH. That scene between him and Christina KILLED me. As you may have noticed, I have conflicted feelings on the on the book. I understand why it went down the way it did, but that doesn’t mean I like it– at all.

I was planning on re-reading Allegiant because I usually end up reading the last book in a series too fast. But I cannot see myself going through that again when I know the tragic ending. When I watch the movies, I’ll always have this lingering sadness now…

Feel free to leave me your thoughts on the book! Was there something that stuck out to you that I didn’t mention? And if you need a virtual hug after reading the book or want to talk about it, my twitter is @YaGirlMelberne
