    Veronica Roth Chicago Tribune Feature: 
    "I've been feeling really weird," she said, watching commuter traffic crawl west along I-88, sipping at her cup. "There are all these people who are going to read 'Allegiant,' right? And they expect something of me. They will want this series to end well. They have high expectations. Yet I have this feeling of impending doom. Or is it —" she raised an eyebrow — "impending awesome? There are a million copies of this book going out!"

    Allegiant iBooks Twitter Chat with Veronica Roth:

    iBooks: What was the inspiration for #Divergent?
    Veronica: Learning about exposure therapy in psych class led to the idea for Dauntless. The other factions came later!
    This is what the fear simulations are supposed to be: WikiLink
    iBooks: The #Divergent Series has such an intricate plot. Do you have a method for keeping the storyline straight?
    Veronica: I wrote Divergent without an outline, but found that I had to start planning in advance! By the time we got to #Allegiant, I had a VERY detailed outline. Consistency issues in Insurgent led me to make lists and charts for book 3
    iBooks: Who is your favorite character in the #Divergent Series to develop and why?
    Veronica: Tris was my favorite to develop-- I loved how her understanding of selflessness changes throughout the series, and how she grieves deeply and overcomes grief, and generally how her worldview changes over time.
    iBooks: When you first sat down and began writing, did you ever imagine your book would one day become a movie?
    Veronica: No! I didn't even let myself imagine that it could be a book! I'm a defensive pessimist by nature so when things work out, it surprises me. In a good way.
    iBooks: What book or book series did you love reading growing up?
    Veronica: HARRY POTTER. The Giver (& all Lois Lowry). A Wrinkle in Time. The Abhorsen series (Garth Nix). Animorphs! Dune.
    iBooks: How do you feel about coming to the end of the #Divergent series?
    Veronica: Mostly I'm excited to share the rest of the story with everyone, but sad to let the characters go. Bittersweet!
    iBooks: (Fan question) Which book was the hardest to write?
    Veronica: Insurgent was hard bc I was just getting used to the idea that people would read my writing! (Ahh!) But Allegiant posed a LOT of narrative challenges (POVs! Explanations! etc.) & thematic challenges. Hard to say which was harder-- maybe equally difficult, for different reasons.
    iBooks: (fan question) How do you get into the writing mood? Do you have a specific routine or just when you feel like it?
    Veronica: I try not to rely on mood, or I'd take forever to finish anything! I write once a day. But a cup of tea and just getting my feet on the writing treadmill makes that easier.
    iBooks: (fanquestion) Do you find it easier or harder writing in 2 POVs? (tris and tobias in Allegiant)
    Veronica: MUCH harder! Keeping the voices distinct is a big challenge. But I really loved doing it. So interesting to have two characters reacting differently to the same situation on the page
    iBooks: (fan question) Do you ever read your own books? Do you feel different about your characters after?
    Veronica: I do. Mostly for consistency while writing the next one. But I do like rediscovering why I loved them enough to write them, which I do when I reread. That's why I'll reread Allegiant. Sometimes I discover new things about chrs after a reread, which is...really weird!
    iBooks: (fan question) Got any advice for how to recover after reading #Allegiant? Because It's been a day and I'm still a wreck.
    Veronica: First of all *GIANT INTERNET HUGS* recommend a comfort read or TV watch? To recover from HP7 I watched Friends. And ate fun snacks.

    1. Hahaha. The ending got me. (lol) I love this series. This is one of those books that actually looked good on screen as well, thanks to great acting talents. I would definitely want to attend a reading maybe in one of those geeky Chicago event venues, maybe a rustic cafe. I always feel at ease to discuss art in those places for some reason.
