This book is the final book to the Selection Series. I thought that it was a great series. I read this book a few years ago, but I remembered enjoying reading the book. I recommend this book to those who like reading about royalty. It felt like the hunger games in a certain aspect. ( )

What the f*ck even was this book!?!??!?!

First thing: This book should not even had to have been written. I mean, the drama in this one could have easily been resolved in the previous one, and we would have achieved the same results, with a lot less procrastination, and a lot less time wasted.

Second thing: The drama with Aspen was seriously unnecessary......if only America could have listened when he was trying to tell her, we would not have required the some 50 pages or so.

Third thing: There were an awful lot of unnecessary deaths in this one America's father did not need to die; that had absolutely zero bearing on the plot, and there could have been a better reason for her to go home.

Celeste did not need to die; again zero bearing on plot since she was already redeemed-it was just plain unnecessary. And then we don't even see America or anyone else mourning her or anything, so again, unnecessary, since her death seems meaningless, so why kill her off in the first place!??!!??!

The King I have no problem with dying, but I have said this and I will say it again, the King behaved really differently from the first book, almost as if he had a change of heart between the first and second book, so again, he still seemed really Out Of Character to me.

The Queen, I don't even know......on the one hand she was written as a stand in mother of sorts, so it was sad to see her go.....on the other, we don't even see her as a well-built character, so I'm not even missing her. It's like she has almost no relevance to the plot, and she is definitely not missed.

Did Anne die? I'm confused because that sentence was really unclear. That reminds me of the fourth thing I had a bone to pick with in this book:


Fourth thing: The sorta thing with Aspen and Lucy and Anne? That was just confusing?? I mean, why write a character with feelings for another character, then make the other character end up with a third one? Why go to all the bother? Like I said, unnecessary. Why do all the side plot about putting in a word for Anne with Aspen, when you're not even going to write them together?

Fifth Thing: The rebel plot is just so confusing?!?!?!?! I mean it has like zero bearing on the actual plot, and then it seems overdone, and just unnecessary!??!?!?!?!? *wrings hands*

I mean, why go to all the bother of writing a rebel plot, when you're not even going to give it closure in the end?!?!?! What happened to August and Georgia anyway!??!?! Did they just vanish!?!??!

After writing this review, I'm feeling like bringing down the rating from 4 to 3, but I'm being generous because that's a beautiful cover and the ending was sorta worth it.

This book should have been shorter, this series could probably have done equally as well with lesser books, and unnecessary side-plots. ( )

What a great way to finish this trilogy! I say this very lightly, because that ending broke me both in a good and a bad way.

I cried a lot, specially towards the end. My heart may have broken into a million pieces about a thousand times throughout this read and I don't know if I'm going to be able to cure it after reading certain parts of this book.

The whole book was a freaking rollercoasters and I'm all here for it! If you love drama, then you're sure to love this one. If you love plot twists, then grab some popcorn. If you like feeling jealous over a fictional character like me, then this is the right book for you ahahah.

That being said, this world makes me happy. Not in the way it was perceived full of wars and competition. But in the way where one loves another and only that love matters to the both of them even if the world is crumbling around them in the end. ( )

I kept thinking that I must have written a review already, but when I double checked I just realised I ranted and raved in the status update whilst reading the book but didn't really put something cohesive. Here's the reason why:

This book sucked.

This series sucked.

I don't know why I finished the series, except that I must be some kind of sadist/masochist rolled into one, or that my curiosity in seeing the end of this train wreck overshadowed my sensibilities. And even that was stretched thin, as I found myself skimming through Maxon's inane letters at the end (with a lot of eye rolling).

To be sure, more actually happened in this last book than the first or second combined, but not much which made sense. After finishing the book, I kept thinking of ways that this series (which had quite an interesting idea, but horrible execution) could have been made to improve - and there are many. I would refrain from expounding on them, as I have only just managed to calm down from flinging the book to the ground in disgust. Others have written at length at how terrible the book/series was and why and I ask that discerning readers go read them - it's quite entertaining (more than the book in most cases) and completely therapeutic (if you've had the misfortune of actually finishing the books).

Overall I can't help but think that this is another one of those examples where a series is written to create hype, with the hopes of catching the eye of some director, who would then get an actual decent writer to re-write and make into a movie. Which would then sell for millions, because have you seen the number of brainless 5 stars reviews?? ( )

The characters just annoyed me in this novel. The tension was irritating. I sort of enjoyed this, but not as much as the other two, and likeability is the strong point of this series. ( )
