SPOILER ALERT!

I have lost patience with the worldbuilding fail in this series

Allegiant  - Veronica Roth

I actually liked "Divergent" when it came out! It was a nonsensical dystopian B-movie of a book with a brisk enough pacing of plot and characters to make me ignore how full of holes this world is. It was fun, it was popcorn turn off your brain sort of thing. I didn't mind that! I know there's books with werewolves on the Titanic, this is just another level of ridiculous, right? "Insurgent" made it worse with its attempts at plot twists but I had to finish and see maybe the end would be an entertaining enough climax to ignore the dumb twist. And yet... this book...

 

Science is displeased!

 

[spoiler]THAT IS NOT HOW GENETICS WORK! THAT IS NOT HOW BEHAVIORAL PSYCHOLOGY WORKS! MY GOD HAVE YOU EVEN HEARD OF A PUNNET SQUARE?! KEEPING GENETICALLY DAMAGED PEOPLE CONFINED AND INTERBREEDING JUST PRODUCES MORE OF IT! AND IF THEY BRED OUT AGGRESSION FROM AMITY WHY ARE THEY ACCUSED OF STARTING WARS! WHY CAN'T YOU EVEN MAKE CONSISTENT SENSE OF YOUR ALREADY STUPID REASONS! STOP! STOP HURTING SCIENCE, IT HASN'T DONE ANYTHING TO YOU!!
