Allegiant in two POV, Veronica Roth explains

One of the big announcements from SDCC this weekend was Veronica Roth stating Allegiant will be written 2 POV.  Of course we are all excited to get MORE FOUR and now we can find out how she came to that decision.  Here is what she posted this week on her Tumblr page.

In case you haven’t heard already, I confirmed on Thursday that Allegiant will be written from two POVs (points of view), Tris and Four’s. This is obviously a departure from how I chose to write the first two books, which has a lot of people excited (yay!) and some concerned, so I thought I would say a little more about it here.

So: why two POVs? Well, I tried repeatedly to write Allegiant in just Tris’s voice, but it didn’t work; her perspective, her way of seeing things, was a little too limited for the story I needed to tell. I wanted to do two things with it: A. let two characters experience different things, and B. let them react differently to the same things, so that I (and eventually, the reader) would get a better sense of the whole story, the whole picture.

I’ve said before that I’ve always seen Four (increasingly, as the series goes on) as a plot-mover alongside Tris, so he was the obvious choice for the second POV (though not the only one I tried). Exploring him and his choices and his assumptions about the world was incredibly interesting to me.

It was a big challenge, it took me a really long time, and I did my very best with it. I feel confident about the way it turned out, and I hope you enjoy it! On October 22nd! AHH!”

When Entertainment Weekly showed us the first look into Divergent with this still I got chills.. I mean CHILLS. This is one of the MANY scenes I am excited to see come to the big screen.

New Still of Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley from The Spectacular Now!

Posted by: ferferlina

Today via Twitter we were excited to see a new still of Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley from their upcoming movie ‘The Spectacular Now’.  If you haven’t read the book yet join our friends over at That’s Normal in their July reading of the ‘The Spectacular Now’ for their “Boozy Book Club“, its loads of fun!

Since I have only seen him as the goofy Willard in Footloose, I for one am excited to see Miles Teller in The Spectacular Now and as devious Peter in Divergent.
