(The Divergent Series)

Based on the novel 
Veronica Roth 

First - The Blurb:

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 meaningliess. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend to complexities of human nature - and of herself - while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.

Second - The Teaser:

Last week, my daughter and I went to see Allegiant. We'd been hanging out to see this movie for a while and were quite excited by the prospect. Although we both enjoyed it, it wasn't quite as good as the first two, largely because this is only Part One and therefore left us with an incomplete feeling. I know the producers have gotten into the habit of doing this to the last book in a series, but honestly, I prefer it if they wouldn't.  I would happily have sat in the seat for a while longer to get the full version. I think I will need to see it again before viewing Part Two.

Okay, so what do you think?
If you liked my Tease, please leave a comment below.


  1. I wanted to watch this one in the theater and then realized it was broken into two. So I skipped it. That way I don't have to wait a year to find out what happens...

  2. EEP! I still need to see this one! I wanted to be able to watch both Allegiant movies back to back!

    Here's my Teaser

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. Why, why, why do that make a movie in two parts like this?? It's annoying! And clearly a way to make more money! Ugh! I'm glad you and your daughter enjoyed it even if it left you feeling things were incomplete. I hated that they did this with Mockingjay as well. I still have to read the series. By then, all the movies will be out and I can marathon them. :)

  4. I loved the books and first two movies. I'm not going to watch any more until they are all released, for the very reason you mentioned.

  5. Argh! I know what you mean! They do tend to stretch the ending out! I will wait to watch it then.
