Ce livre reste dans la meme veine que les 2 tomes précédents, tout tourne autour d'America et Maxton, et de l.évolution de leur relation. Heureusement, le côté révolution et remise en cause du système que j'avais vraiment aimé dans les 2 premiers livres est toujours bien présent lui aussi. J'ai passé un bon moment mais je trouve que l'auteur ne s'est quand même pas foulée. Je suis à peu près sûre que certaines fanfiction sur internet seront plus abouties...:)
C'est vraiment dommage parce que tout était là pour faire quelque chose de vraiment palpitant.
Bon, maintenant, ce livre est absolument parfait pour de jeunes ados en fleur ( je dis ça sans que ce soit péjoratif!)

"The One" est le dernier tome de la trilogie "Selection". Quelques jours après sa parution, il y a déjà plusieurs centaines de commentaires parus, tous très laudatifs.

Personnellement, je suis loin d'être dithyrambique mais je ne fais clairement pas parti du public. J'avais été attirée par la jolie couverture du premier tome, et je m'étais amusée avec l'histoire : un Bachelor tourné façon télé réalité, mais où le Bachelor est l'héritier du trône (puceau) et où la Sélection aboutissant au choix de la future Princesse est un processus légal institué par l'Etat, où les jeunes filles de toutes castes sont tirées au sort pour y participer (en théorie...). Accessoirement, le tout se fait dans une ambiance "Sissi impératrice" avec moulures dorées, robes interminables et domestiques à gogo. Plus kitsh, tu meurs.

Rappel des faits:
- tome 1 la belle America, d'une des castes les plus basses, est sélectionnée. Elle ne veut pas y aller (elle a déjà un amoureux) mais la pression familiale (beaucoup d'argent à la clé, pour chaque semaine de participation) la fait céder. Le prince et elle apprennent à se connaître et à s'apprécier.
- tome 2 l'ancien amoureux d'America par un étrange tour du sort (Biiiien sur) est tiré au sort pour faire parti des gardes du palais, le faisant passer de la caste 6 (quasi la plus basse) à la caste 2 (la plus prestigieuse, excluant celle de la famille royale).

J'avais été super emballée par les 2 premiers tomes mais la fin de la saga ne m'a que moyennement plu. Je trouve que l'auteur n'arrive pas à nous faire comprendre les sentiments de America et surtout pourquoi elle se décide pour un prétendant plutôt qu'un autre. Du coup le reste des personnages n'est pas assez abouti à mon gout non plu. A lire quand même pour boucler la saga et retrouver un univers dystocique qui m'avait bien plu.

A very honest review of good/bad. 7 mai 2014
Par Tash50Tash50 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I have erased the first line of this review six times because I want to be fair and accurate and each of my previous attempts at starting this review have come off too negative. I want to be clear this is my opinion and while I will point out some negatives; I would still read the book and the series due to the concept it has - which had unlimited potential.

I have faithfully followed America, Maxon and Aspen through to the end in hopes of...more.

It seems to me there was a wealth of possibilities that all fell short with the series. This could have been great if the story telling wasn't quite so single minded and there was more focus on where to place emphasis on expanding details and background, and when to stop over cooking a plot point or even a chunk of information. Quite a bit of information was laid out that was interesting but never explored. It felt like it should or would have value within the story, but never did. Alternately, information with superficial value was often expounded on, many times, ad nauseam; which leant nothing to the story save a cringe.

The groundwork was laid for a look at an socially unraveling post war American society with a royal family. What an intriguing concept! America (Country: not the heroine) with a royal family - in a post war with China setting - in and of itself had all the possibility of great things to come. I enjoyed the premise of the story but all in all it provided very superficial entertainment. I know there is a "The Bachelor" element to it that combined some attempts at serious looks into a society that is flawed but overall; I've been left wanting. The beauty of this series is only skin deep. You never really get a true peak behind the curtain. It felt like a reality show in truth. You didn't see the reality of that world (or this piece of it) but only snippets of edited content. And all the edits felt like they cut out vital and interesting material, and just left you with what was thought to be salacious but really has been done before. The story that almost was...

To be fair, there is nothing wrong with that. If you want a light series which on occasion touches some veins of depth, but always yanks you back out in time with a dose of sunshine and, " let's not look too closely at the grime on the wall," this is for you. Another reviewer of the first book said, to effect, if you like reality romance shows, the selection of clothes and food scenes in The Hunger Games then this book is for you. They were right.

I purchased it anyway and found some great parts with the potential for more. I never received any moments of extreme enlightenment but I passed a few hours in one-dimensional entertainment with glimpses of what could/may have been coming. I was intrigued enough to keep coming back to see where it would go and with hope. Oh so much hope, not to see an interesting idea languish on the spine (of the book) without coming to fruition. Surely it would progress. But it felt rather like every time I was nearing the exploration of some interesting plot point, I'd be hurried back to the route of least literary resistance and the series and particularly The One is poorer for it.

America, is supposed to be selfless, but of course we all have flaws or what is the point of reading a redeeming story? Yet, while America falls into doing the right thing time and again, the wrong way, it appears she doesn't learn from her errors - over and over. This is consistent and can be tedious and repetitious. Is it accurate for a teenager, maybe, but this is our heroine and story foundation? I felt there should have been more growth as apparently she was always a fighter, with a strong moral compass, who knew right from wrong, etc. I found I wanted to throttle her at times but mostly...I just didn't care. The not caring was the worst part, especially when I WANTED to care. Sure, she did some great things and showed some fortitude but she brooded more than anything. I wanted to love her and root for her.

Maxon, is painted as vaguely mysterious and likely genuine but very reserved and fickle. There are reasons for this yet, Ms. Cass, never fleshes out her primary figures enough for me to truly think, "Yes, OK! I get it! I get him!" I feel I was only provided with the bare essentials and the resulting effect left me wanting more and never being able to get too far beyond a Cinderella happy ending stereotypical image with Maxon, as opposed to truly loving or hating him and/or his choices. Actually, that line is true for much of the story, not just Maxon. He (and the story) could have been a gem of storytelling either way...hero or heel. Here is an American monarchy. I wanted more from them (Maxon and the monarchy and the story) than the bare sketching we received. My goodness, the pickings were rich and again it felt as if the path of least resistance was taken. Again, Maxon and the monarchy for that matter, were the poorer for it. I can never really say I got behind him one way or the other.

Ambivalence is the most horrid emotion for a main character in my opinion. Not really feeling anything is a story killer and sadly it occurs in multiple fronts in The One and the series. Three main characters and ambivalence is the predominant emotion I feel.

Aspen falls into the same net as the other two. We receive more background on his character in the first books but in The One, he becomes a mere plot device, devoid of anything but a few hero scenarios and an inevitable stumbling block for America and Maxon. Then, he semi fades into the background despite efforts otherwise. Even with Aspen not being such a prominent figure in this book it didn't change or clarify events or feelings. I'm not missing the message that was being transmitted; I'm saying it wasn't transmitted clearly, by force or fault, I don't know.

I have so many unanswered questions. I really felt let down that some very interesting aspects, maybe some of the most interesting pieces of the supporting story structure, weren't fleshed out at all or we are given a one to two line sentence (on occasion a paragraph or two) to neatly wrap them up for us - MOVE ALONG NOTHING TO SEE HERE. Yet they aren't. There were far too many unanswered questions or areas that were just passed over. It made the story feel forced, condensed and incomplete in many aspects.

SPOILERS AHEAD

We finally learn about the two rebel groups...but do we? These are serious plot points that have been referred to endlessly yet when the time comes, we learn about the Northern rebels in only the tiniest of details. How they were formed is a bomb briefly dropped on us but it's merely mentioned in passing and never touched on again. What??? Who they came from I thought was going to be important. It wasn't. Now, Maxon and America are best friends with the Northern rebels in short order. Funny how that sense of trust was established so quickly, with them, in that volatile situation; yet all three primary characters couldn't muster anywhere near that in their own lives and interactions, despite the more immediate sense of life or death involved with the choice of faith in the rebels. And they (the main characters) had much more time together to establish trust with each other than with the N. rebels. The Southern rebels are given a brief description and then we only see two actions after that but no more explanations, formations, foundations, NADA - just accept it reader despite all the buildup. We see the ease and ability for these rebels to invade a palace over and over and some of the ways they do what they do at the end. Yet we are asked to suspend our disbelief of how easy it is with no explanation or even mention of it. Heck, anyone can walk right into the palace. No problem. The reader is asked to suspend disbelief or plausibility and not hope for any type of explanation at all in many cases. It felt and feels wrong to me.

Those points aside, it's yet another example of potential interesting points which could have helped develop this world for us, help us understand these people we are trying to loathe, love and pull for, but it just becomes a brief side note which pops up when entirely convenient and is wrapped up with a very short bit of dialogue when it's bothered to be addressed at all. There are numerous examples of this throughout The One and the series. After awhile it became frustrating though I never stopped hoping for more because there was just so much potential, but most of it ended up being a by-product of the story, as opposed to A PART of the story.

I don't want to give away anymore spoilers but I will say that this book consistently, in my opinion, failed to deliver meaningful fleshed out story lines and only touched on the most superficial of things with glimpses of much deeper oceans in the background that we never get to really see let alone swim in. That is by far the most disappointing aspect of the series. I feel like so much was either wasted or taken for granted. As a reader I don't care to be pandered to, but to be fair, the lack of information or relevant detail was constant throughout the series so it is my own fault for constantly expecting more when there was very little sign I was ever going to receive it.

There were good parts, don't get me wrong. I just could never really put myself behind one thing or another because I felt as if I was only ever getting a fourth of what was there...or could be. I don't regret reading the story and I can't not recommend it. I can say that this is a what you see is what you get and only that book. Don't look for much of the supporting information to be anything more than the sheerest of window dressing. Light with lack luster attempts at depth, a love story without faith or conviction, and a pleasant simple read if you don't expect more than a slightly modified Cinderella story/reality TV show with minor attempts at world building which falls short of the mark by measures.

I feel as though this is coming off very negative and I'm sorry if my thoughts do not mirror yours but I had to be truthful. Everything was just wrapped up so fast and too quickly skipping over what could have been exceptional story telling but ended up being the road well traveled but not well written or maybe well detailed. The end of the book just glosses over some monumental information (and characters) we've been set up with for two and a half books as well as quite a bit of game changing information last minute. Then we just get the stock standard expected ending with a few curve balls that aren't ever explored or shown proper respect. They feel tacked on for shock value and thus bring little honor or respect in storytelling.

I truly did, on a very simplistic level, enjoy some of the story and persons in it. This review reads negatively in many respects, pointing out quite a bit of faults as "I" perceived them. This should not imply in any way that this book has no value or merit. I suggest rather, that the book is a light airy book which tries to be more than that, but isn't. So enjoy the aspects which are present as it is a book that I don't regret reading and would suggest to others based on their reading preferences. This book has a core/target audience. Unfortunately, I wasn't it. I suggest that this is a time of dystopian, world building, heroine, love triangle heavy stories in the literature market. There have been some great ones and some poor ones and a lot in between. I think this is a series that tried to fit into that genre and did in minor - check the block ways- but didn't hit the mark some (including me) have come to expect or hope for in this genre. I've tried to articulate why it didn't click for me and placed more emphasis on that as opposed to the positive aspects. It isn't intentional but rather where my gut and reading experience led me. I am sure someone who experienced a better read with this will focus more on the positive aspects. Perhaps reading both types of reviews will give a more complete picture. I hope my review is not taken out of context but gives a solid foundation for those who are looking for a book in the genre I have described and can use this review to decide if it will be a story that meets the requirements they are seeking. I would try Ms. Cass in the future to see if it was just this particular topic I didn't mesh with.

SUMMATION: This series/book could have been great. Instead it's an excellent idea that just turned out ok. I was disappointed, but I still found value in it. I suggest you read this to finish the series but don't expect any deviation from the two books prior - in terms of detail or idea exploration. Take on face value what the author gives you. I will not be rereading this series as I have other series when I want to relive that feeling or freshness, I just don't think it was here in the first place. I feel this is more a true young adult book as opposed to a YA/adult crossover. And that is my mistake not the author's. I wish it could have been different, I really wanted to fall in love with this (as I will say again - the concept had major potential) but for me, it wasn't possible. I am sorry if you loved this and disagree. I am not trying to bash the author. In the end, it is our own expectations which are the greatest, and my expectations were not met. This series is a 3 star series for great ideas, though not completely fulfilled, for characters who could have been something special but fell short and who are worth meeting but not worth having over for dinner a second time.

An enjoyable book but not without some reservations 14 mai 2014
Par LR - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I started a series without all the books out, so I had to wait to read the last one. It was a novel feeling (pun intended). This meant I really didn't remember a ton of smaller plot details - I had forgotten about Marlee's caning (whoops), the specifics of America's interactions with the king, smaller ultimatums between characters. However, since the plot of the book didn't rely heavily on intricate plot details, I continued reading with some holes in my knowledge rather then going back or rereading the other books (still to new in my memory).

Some non spoilery critiques...The Bachelor style reality show element of the Selection, which was already pretty weak in the first two books, all but ceases to exist in The One. This kind of disappointed me because I always thought there was real potential in that format. The weekly addresses seem unimportant to begin with, and I can't recall one from The One.

~~Beware - this review has some SPOILERS. In my book, spoilers don't ruin anything (if something's enjoyable, you're not just reading to find out what happens) but I know some people want to be surprised!~~

The problems of the previous books continue on in The One. However, the need to end the series means that these problems are not made even more problematic by the other book's unsatisfactory conclusions. To me, these problems have been:
a) the splitting of this story into three novels. Unnecessary and unnatural given the pace of the books.
b) Aspen. He's not a bad character and he is necessary, because without him Maxon and America would have had nothing (or very little) in the way of their relationship and the selection bit of the books would have ended quite quickly. But I never really bought their relationship as the great, world ending love it was pegged to be at the beginning - though admittedly this is resolved in The One.
c) America's demanding honesty and - for lack of a better word - 'monogamy' from Maxon. Not bad things to desire in and of themselves, but given Aspen, it's completely hypocritical. Throughout the first two books she treats Aspen like back up, and in The One explicitly acknowledges that she only wants him around in case Maxon doesn't work out. This is pretty gross, and I wish it wasn't a part of her character.

These problems are largely laid to rest in The One. Aspen shifts from great love to a more brotherly figure, although this is delayed to the very last second which I found annoying. America's sharing Aspen and her's relationship with Maxon is also, as I dreaded, part of the emotional climax of the book. This is annoying - it's always bothered me, America's lack of honesty in that department because it always struck me as purely a device to prolong the love triangle as a plot point. Little is done to show America and Aspen's chemistry other then showing it through meaningful gazes, declarations of love and angst. I need banter and laughter and character. We see that much more with Maxon. Of course, there is faux drama thrown into their relationship as well, with endless tiffs about Maxon hanging out with the other girls and America not feelings like she knows him (which is a complaint that seems to come from no where as we've seen little indication of it).
This is at odds with the facts that as a couple, Maxon and America a) meet rebels in secret, b) meet those rebels again in disguise on a dangerous mission that relies on absolutely trusting each other, c) engage in political intrigue and maneuvering. We see countless times them acting as King and Queen, which is nice as a story point but you do wish the two of them would notice it.

I have found America's characterization to be contradictory. She demands honesty, yet is dishonest. She does things no one else would or could, yet occasionally doesn't seem capable of complex thought. (Example: the first scene, when there's a bombing and everyone must go downstairs, a guard tells them it's over and she simply takes his word - the rebels have used guard's uniforms before. Why wasn't she suspicious?) Early on in this book she realizes quite clearly that she loves Maxon, yet persists with not telling him or even really admitting it to herself for quite a while.
Most of the dialogue is pure exposition. When Celeste makes her breakthrough and becomes friends with everyone, she straightforwardly says exactly what's wrong with her, as no real person ever would. All Telling, no Showing. No one knows exactly what's making them feel bad, feelings are complex - contradictory, embarrassing, mired in personal history. She simply says "I always wanted fame." And there you have it. This makes the relationships somewhat bland. There's no character in the way anyone talks, no different speech patterns or favorite turns of phrase.

The most important flaw in this book (so far as I see it) is the poor plot resolutions to some of the B plots. There are many parts of the book that don't really meet an end, instead just trailing off into nowhere. America courts Nicoletta, princess of Italy to supply the peaceful rebels with weapons, she agrees and that's the last you hear of it. Do they ever get the weapons? Maybe. It's not brought back in any real way.
What about the girl America befriends in the alley? She's never heard from again. She also suffers from the exposition problem, because the second she meets America in that alley she's spewing her life story as if it's the summary of a lifetime movie. No one talks this way, it feels extremely disingenuous.
America's dad is revealed to be a Northern Rebel, which apparently ties together some loose end except that I had all but forgotten them because they were so glossed over anyway. And America's finding out about her dad is summed up in "Oh! My dad's a rebel! That explains ____. Wow!" And then it's never mentioned again.
Kriss is also revealed to be a Northern rebel, as the last minute, but nothing comes of this either. This particular detail seems to have been included so that you wouldn't feel bad for her (and her supposedly genuine love for Maxon) as much when he picks America.
Other details left unresolved: Anne's crush on Aspen. There was no real point in having Anne ask Mer to talk to Aspen for her, as a) Mer never does really, anyway and b) Anne is almost literally never seen after that in the book.
The Rebel groups are never fully fleshed out and by the end of the book they never seemed that important anyway. Countries like New Asia, which get mentioned periodically so I assumed something might happen with them at some point, are also unimportant and may as well never have existed in the story.
But what of Maxon's villainous father, one of the real blocks in this countries pursuit of happiness? He dies offscreen in the climactic surprise battle at the end. Sadly, so does Amberley. It's a pretty discreet end to the character, and really nullifies his earlier threat in the books. There's no real confrontation, he gets angry a few times while still alive, but the smallness of his death seems odd.

When the book ends, you find yourself thinking "but what about....oh, I guess that's done, too." There was never a ton of plot to these books, the two rebel factions were confusing (why were there two? Answer: so your could have dramatic scenes of them storming the castle but also still have their cause remain sympathetic.), and the love triangle was very mild and somewhat forced. The ending is nice, but you do feel cheated out of something. You also realize that you haven't really learned anything new in this, the last book. Do we no anything else about Illea, or Gregory Illea and their intentions? The rebels? The other countries, or the castes? No.
Despite my litany of complaints, it was an enjoyable book to read for the most part. It was quick and there were enough details and bits to keep me hooked, though certainly not enough world building for my taste. I'd recommend the series, even if it's a solid C+ in my book.

Spoilers + puzzled by the trilogy + MORE spoilers **Divergent spoiler connection** 7 mai 2014
Par guadalupe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
**If you don't want any spoilers of ANY kind of Divergent or The One series, Do NOT read this review, in my review I make a comparison that has a huge Divergent spoiler, so you've been warned.**

This isn't going to be the best of reviews if you are one of those "OMGOSH I LOVED THIS BOOK/TRILOGY/ETC" kinda person, I'll probably disappoint you. I'm going to be try to be short and sweet and to the point. It's just a viewpoint. It's just my thoughts. If you don't agree, great. I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings.

I had problems with this "love story", due to the characters so very fickle in their "love". I had trouble with "America" as in, I don't know, seeming egotistical? Yep, I recognized the whole Ester/Cinderella story in this, but would this story have worked if she would have stayed with Aspen? Think "Twilight" with Edward/Jacob/Bella. Think the Hunger Games with Peeta/Gale. Those characters had character. I would have respected Aspen a bit more if he'd stay true to the end in his love for America, as did Jacob, or even as did Gale. They never wavered in their devotion to their heroines and these guys did. It was so frustrating to see America play them. Yeah, I get she was "torn", but I'm just calling it as I see it. She pretty much played them, didn't have to have any real accountability, until the end when her sister called her on it, but it took till book 3 for someone to call her out.

And the whole "Bachelor" thing. I hate that reality show, but only because it's hard to take anyone seriously who says, "I love you will you marry me" after kissing loads of other girls. And all the whole kissing/making out sessions? Yeah, I get Twilight did the whole scene too, but at least they actually said, "I LOVE YOU!" Maxon and America? Maybe we do, maybe we don't, kiss, kiss. That was frustrating. And if those rebels wouldn't have killed people at that last chapter, especially the psycho-path King, America would be headed out with no one and Maxon would be marrying someone else. So thank the rebels for your love story happy ending, and stopping Maxon from his own temper tantrum. And I really like happy endings, I do! Just not so, I don't know, thrown around like that.

Aspen. I really loved this character. He gave up America because he couldn't provide her with the best. He did it out of love for her. Said he would fight for her. Wait for her. And to have him in the end, "I'm with Lucy"? (and I read the short stories!) Wow. Fickle. And Maxon? "I'm mad at you so I'll go with another girl right now" kinda guy. No, wait. More like, "I'm so mad at you, I'm going to marry someone else" kinda guy.

I gave this book 3 stars because while I liked it, I didn't love it. But at least she didn't kill off America. **cough**Divergent**cough** And the only character that actually showed redemption was Celeste? I actually ended up liking her as well!!!! But that whole caste thing? It was hard to get that they were fighting for a better life when the only life really depicted in the trilogy was the palace. It was alot of background mind noise IMHO. I wanted to cheer for them, I wanted to be a fan. I wanted to be thrilled with the ending. In the end, the only thing that made me feel better was writing this review. In the end I'm so glad so many like the series. I would hate for anyone to feel like I do right now. =)

This is deff not a series you should miss! 20 juin 2014

OMG! What can I say about this conclusion to the most Heart wrenching series I have ever read? Sorry had to think there for a little bit. This book starts up just days after The Elite ends. Then goes on for I think about another month or so. This book made my heart ache like no other. You just don't know who will survive and who won't. I am sad to say that some people don't make it. People who I had come to love during reading this story. Dont worry I won't spoil it for you.

America, Aspen, and Maxon have cemented themselves into my heart and the last 20 pages or so of this book were just FEELS all the way around! So don't get near them without tissues.

The rest of the book is filled with mystery. intrigue, romance, swoon, swoon, swoon, and well me wanting to jump in the book and punch the king in the gonads.

This book will have you crying, yelling, and well I just can't say enough good about this series and this book in particular. It has to be the best of the series. And I really hope that I get to see this one on the big screen someday. I did wish that the author would have taken the Epilogue further. As it wasn't set in the future.

This is deff not a series you should miss!

America really finds her strength in this one and she learns to fight for what she wants so I will leave you with the following!
I have taken out America's name fyi

"Fight! You might not want to fight for the things that most others would fight for, like money or notoriety, but fight all the same. Whatever it is that you want. Go after it with all that you have in you!"

While I really enjoy action and surprise this book packs a lot of it into a very short span. After 3 books the last few chapters just kind of rip your heart out and give it back only to rip it out again in order to tie up all the loose ends in a short period.
