Divergent Book and Movie Fansite
Yesterday instagram exploded when photos of fans with 'Allegiant' books started popping up. In both cases the instagram users were from Canada. Fans immediately jumped on twitter to tweet HarperCollins about the problem and begged those fans that received the early books to keep the internet spoiler free.
HarperCollins CA responded right away to fans letting them know that they are looking into this rumor and said that would stay up all night to figure out the problem, if there was one.
A video surfaced today to prove the 'Allegiant' books were pictured were in fact real. This video shows the jacket, hardback book with symbol, cover page, and binding. It also shows a page count of 'Allegiant' at 526 pages. I am not going to post the video in case you want to be surprised when you receive your own copy of 'Allegiant,' but you can see the video here.
Veronica Roth has just responded to this:
I found out earlier today that a very small number of readers received finished copies of Allegiant already, instead of on October 22nd, due to a Canadian shipping error that has since been fixed. I’m disappointed, and I’m sure you are too. I personally have been waiting, pretty much since the trilogy began, for the day when the last book would come out and we would all experience it together—you for the first time and me, with the giddy anticipation of an author who finally gets to watch everyone finish the story that has been so dear to me. That’s why I’ve been so secretive for so long! But accidents and errors just happen sometimes.
If you are one of the people who received Allegiant early: I would love it if you wanted to wait to read it until October 22nd alongside your fellow Initiates. However, I can’t blame you if that’s just not going to work for you. I do ask, no matter what you decide, that out of kindness and respect for your fellow Divergent readers and their reading experiences, you do not post spoilers or quotes anywhere. I know I can count on you to preserve the mystery with me— I may be biased, but I think I have the best readers ever.
Everyone else: I think we’re still going to have a great October 22nd (and weeks immediately following). Be very wary of what you read online, and we’ll come out of this just fine.
